6 MUST-HAVE HAIR PRODUCTS
RECOMMENDED BY OUR STYLISTS
“While great hair starts in the salon, it must be nurtured at home.”
When it comes to online shopping for home-haircare products, it can be difficult to differentiate between the “good” and the over-hyped through marketing ploys.
Haircare products now consume the second biggest segment in the cosmetics industry, making it one of the most over-crowded markets to buy from. From over-priced hair vitamins to the devious use of hair extensions used to model their products, it can be difficult to trust brands to give you the correct, honest information about which products are most suitable for your hair type, desires and needs.
We asked our talented team of stylists with a combined 30+ years of experience to put together a start-to-finish haircare routine, suitable to nourish and repair any type of hair with these essential haircare products, below.
1.WELLA INVIGO COLOUR BRILLIANCE
Shampoo & Conditioner
As the name suggests, the Wella Invigo Colour Brilliance collection is an absolute MUST for cleansing and nourishing freshly coloured hair. This shampoo is perfect for locking in colour and it provides long-lasting colour protection for up to 7 weeks! The formula helps close the cuticle after colouration, leaving shiny, sought-after, vibrant hair.
Perfect for: Fine to normal hair and thick or coarse hair.

2. OSMO INTENSIVE DEEP REPAIR MOISTURE MASK
This is an intensive, hydrating treatment perfect for controlling frizz-prone hair and improving the health of the scalp. A hydrating mask should be used at least once a week to achieve the best results. Depending on the length and condition of the hair, you may have to use the product more frequently.
Perfect for: Restoring moisture in dry or damaged hair.

3. KERASTASE THERAPISTE SERUM
As seen in our recent “Tame That Mane” video, Ashleigh uses the Kerastase serum before applying harsh heat to the hair such as straightening or curling irons. This product is perfect for damaged hair as well as preventing breakage while styling.
Perfect for: Damaged, dry hair.

4. REDKEN ONE UNITED
Redken One United is a versatile product that can be applied as a cleanser to refresh the hair between washes; as a rinse-out or leave-in treatment; or as a styling product to protect or finish your look. It delivers a whopping twenty-five benefits to improve manageability, protection and beauty of the hair.

5. OLAPLEX TREATMENT
The original “bond builder”, OLAPLEX is a three-step-treatment used universally to rebuild bleach-damaged hair which has been broken in the chemical process. “Olaplex is like a gym routine for your hair – the more you use it, the stronger, healthier, and shinier it will be.” This is a must for hair that has been damaged by bleach and/or extensions.
Perfect for: Protecting hair while bleaching.

6. WELLA PROFESSIONALS REFLECTIONS OIL
The Wella Professionals Reflections Oil is an absolute favourite of ours and is used widely in hair salons across the UK. It is known for its natural anti-oxidants that instantly reveal the natural, beautiful reflections of your hair colour, bringing the hair to life after styling with heat.
Perfect for: Adding luminosity without weighing hair down.

So, what did we find?
These are just a few of the many fantastic products out there today. It is evident to see, the long-standing, well established brands are still an absolute favourite amongst our stylists, and is the reason why we continue to stock and use such products in the salon everyday.
To summarise, remember to always use “good” shampoo and conditioner and heat-protectant products while styling. While regular visits to the salon keep your hair looking great and in top condition, it is equally as important to continue looking after and nourishing your hair at home.
