Favourites 44

A shampoo and conditioner might be the staples of any hair care regime but the beauty shelves are brimming with all sorts of products promising to smooth, grow and improve the look of your locks. But where to start? From scalp scrubs to supplements, we’ve rounded up nine of the hottest products you didn’t  know you needed…

Treatment Masque, £25 |  Ouai

WHY WE RATE IT: Upstaging every other hair mask you’ve possibly ever tried, Ouai’s Treatment Masque, £25 for eight sachets, is the talk on every beauty editor’s lips. Rich but not greasy, these cult sachets help to repair damage caused by everyday exposure to heat, pollution and UV to leave strands strong, silky and supple. The handy sachets are great for gym bags and travelling, too.

Embroidered Silk Queen Pillowcase, £62 | Silk

WHY WE RATE IT: Hear us out on this one – yes you’re spending £62 on a pillowcase, but it’s the one tip every hairdresser will give when asked. Helping to reduce friction on your strands as you sleep, a silk pillowcase can reduce split ends and frizz as well as keep blow-dries in-tact for days.  The bottom line? If hair’s your thing, a silk pillowcase is a game-changer.

Cool Girl Texturising Spray, £25 | Hair By Sam McKnight

WHY WE RATE IT: If you’ve long relied on the humble salt spray to create beachy waves, now’s the time to upgrade your beauty stash. Step forward hair legend Sam McKnight’s eagerly anticipated product line, of which the Cool Girl Spray is a stand-out. The result of four decades in the industry, the entire range is results-driven yet affordable and smells incredible (Miller Harris were on board to develop delicious fragrances). Spritz this mist through damp or dry hair fora nonchalant, fresh-out-of-bed style

Chronologiste Revitalizing Exfoliating Care, £21.10 | Kérastase

WHY WE RATE IT: If you suffer from oily roots and dry ends, it could be worth trying a hair and scalp scrub. Working effectively yet gently to remove product build up, this pre-shampoo treatment will leave hair bouncier and healthier. Beauty bloggers also rave about Christophe Robin’s Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt, £17, so keep an eye out for that, too, if you’re after a more natural formula.

The Hair Molecule, £35 | Fountain

WHY WE RATE IT: This potent cocktail of strand-strengthening silicon, biotin and hyaluronic acid helps to promote healthier hair from the inside, out. Simply take two teaspoons (10ml) daily, either directly or mixed into water or a smoothie, to transform your hair’s strength, flexibility and shine. Suitable for men and women, this clever formula is a sure-fire way to boost lacklustre locks, especially during times of stress or before a special event, like a wedding.

Volume Creator Powder & Brush,£45.10 | Davines

WHY WE RATE IT: If you haven’t yet tried Davines’ cult products, do. This clever volumising powder is one of the brand’s more innovative products, adding volume and texture to the hair as well as removing oil without the need for a dry shampoo. Apply directly to the roots or to the lengths and ends to add texture. The formula is all-natural, obtained from coconut and bamboo powder, making this volumising spray the cool girl’s alternative to Batiste.

Natural Sparkling Mineral Water, £1.16 | Badoit

WHY WE RATE IT: As Sibi Bolan, Creative Colour and Balayage Consultant at Josh Wood Atelier recommends, “Pour a cup-full of sparkling water onto hair post shampoo and conditioner as a final cleanse. It might sound mad but sparkling water will make your hair – especially blondes – super shiny. Keep in the fridge for even better results.” And it doesn’t need to be Pellegrino – stick to supermarket own brands for an affordable fix.

Supersonic Hair Dryer, £299.99 | Dyson

WHY WE RATE IT: The hype for Dyson’s hairdryer shows no sign of slowing down and it’s not hard to see why – the high-tech machine dries hair up to six times faster and intelligent heat settings ensure hair won’t get fried. The result? Added shine, a smoother finish and less damaged hair. If you’re looking to cut styling time and reduce damage without compromising on results, this hairdryer could be worth the investment.

Strengthening Oil, £25 | Grow Gorgeous

WHY WE RATE IT: If daily styling, UV damage, pollution, brushing and combing have taken their toll on your hair, turn to this strand-reviving oil for instant results. Packed with chia seed, omega-3, iron, antioxidants and a whole host of vitamins, this clever oil creates a protective film around the hair to prevent protein loss. Rave reviews from hair stylists and beauty bloggers alike make this a true cult product in the making.
