MONDAY HAIRCARE

MONDAY is the brainchild of New Zealand entrepreneur Jaimee Lupton, who first launched the brand in 2018 before expanding to the US early last year. Its instantly recognisable pink bottles have since gone viral on TikTok, and at present the range spans four shampoo and conditioner duos, each dedicated to a specific hair concern: ‘Gentle’ for damaged hair, ‘Moisture’ for dry hair, ‘Smooth’ for frizzy hair and ‘Volume’ for fine and flat hair. The best bit? Each bottle is just £5, offering salon-worthy results at home but at a fraction of the price.
