Start with a hydration hit
Great hair starts in the shower, so take care to establish a regular routine to show your locks you care. Using a quality shampoo and conditioner that adds moisture and prevents damage makes a world of difference to dry hair. Splendidly Silky Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner make excellent choices. The shampoo cleans softens and smoothes while vitamin E replenishes vital moisture, combats frizz and boosts shine. The conditioner is packed with moisturising marvels shea butter, vitamin E and aloe vera gel which soothe the scalp while hydrating and nourishing the hair. Meadowfoam seed oil promotes hair health and rebuilds damaged areas, while wheat protein helps to protect, repair and enhance gloss.
Adam recommends taking it easy on the hair washing.
“Excellent advice for everyone, whatever your hair type, is not to wash your hair too often. Once every 2-3 days is enough. If you’re used to washing your hair daily, make the change. Your hair will regulate itself over a couple of weeks. On in-between days, dry shampoo will clean the roots and refresh the lengths.”
Give your hair a treat
Add a hair mask or treatment to your regular routine, and you’ll soon be the proud owner of super smooth strands. It helps to use a treatment at least weekly or more if you need it. Our founder Paul says,
“masks help to lock in colour, add shine and seal the cuticle, maintaining the hair’s condition.”
