Prep, Prime, Style your way to perfection

It’s natural to look after your skin with a regular regime. Cleansers, toners and moisturisers are a sure thing, you may add a sheet mask and use a primer to smooth your skin so your makeup applies better and stays put. While your skincare routine might be set, do you put as much thought into caring for your hair? There is that odd rare goddess who has naturally beautiful hair without doing a thing to it (lucky her) but for most of us, a great haircare routine is the only sure-fire route to fabulous hair. Percy & Reed’s Prep, Prime, Style step system and haircare products will help you on the path to hair perfection. Glorious hair this way ladies...

 

Prep

Woman washing hair in shower

The best foundation for styling is thoroughly cleansed and conditioned hair. It’s time to lather up. Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Wash Shampoo is an excellent choice for all hair types to start your routine. Ingredients like pro Vitamin B5 and wheat protein nourish the hair. Massage with your fingers to create a rich lather, then rinse, repeat and rinse again. We always recommend a second shampoo when washing your hair; it’s known as double-cleansing. The first lather removes daily dirt, build up and any styling product residue. The second delivers all the good stuff in the shampoo to your hair. Your hair will feel squeaky clean and super swishable.

For wonder-ful results, follow with Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Care Conditioner. This silky smooth problem solver responds to hair’s individual needs, detangling and conditioning from root to tip. It protects colour and brings back a silky radiance to the hair. Wash your hair as often as you feel you need, these products are kind and dermatologically tested. They cleanse gently, are ultra mild and sulphate free. Our co-founder Adam says, “Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Wash Shampoo & Wonder Care Conditioner defend against the environment and are both moisture balancing and re-conditioning. Incorporating them into your haircare routine can be transformative.”

 

Prime

Percy & Reed Wonder Balm

It’s time to ace your base. A hair primer acts in much the same way as a skin primer. Our Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm is, as they say, the cream de la cream of styling products. It will prime your hair for all styling techniques. Not only does it act as a great base for all the products you will use on top, but this little beauty will also protect you from heat styling, frizz and humidity for three blissful days. It helps ease and speed up the styling process giving you more control and results that last longer. Adam says, “Apply primer when hair is wet and watch the magic happen, this fantastic leave-in balm gives light hold and definition.” You simply need to dispense 3-5 pumps into your palms and apply from root to tip, work through hair using a comb or your fingers.

You can combine Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm with other hair products too. If you want to add some extra ‘oomph’ to your look, mix a few drops of Smoothed, Sealed and Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil for Fine Hair together with the balm - it will give you added volume. For that glass-like shine so popular on Insta right now, mix it with a few drops of Smoothed, Sealed and Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair - it’ll leave you with amazingly glossy, shiny, hair. 

 

Style

 

Now you’ve set the perfect base you can tease, tousle and tame your hair as you wish. Whatever your hairstyle, there is a styling product to hydrate, add shine, pump up the volume or fight the frizz. Create a look that’s uniquely yours, whether you are blow drying, straightening or curling.

Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray is a great product choice when using a heated straightening or curling iron. It holds your hair just where you want it without that ‘rock solid’ look. This mist is ultra-fine and heat and humidity resistant. Spray into the hair just before using your heated straighteners or curling tong to help your style last longer.

Voila! You’ve prepped, primed and styled your way to beautiful, well-behaved hair. Follow this routine regularly and then supplement with a hair treatment for your hair type to keep your hair strong, shining with health and feeling fabulous. Our founder Paul says, “Use a treatment at least weekly, and it will help add shine, hydrate, seal the cuticle and maintain the hair’s condition.” Add additional hair products as and when you need them, changing up the routine to suit your specific hair type, the season or a special occasion.
