Dry, Lacklustre Locks? Try Our Three Easy Tips To Make Your Mane Silky Again…
The beauty desk are struggling with our hair. Yes, despite conditioning throughout the winter months and diligently applying hair masks, the combination of the temperature drop and central heating has rendered our hair dry and frizzy. We of course got straight on the blower to celebrity hairstylist Charlotte Cave for her tips on how to make our hair luscious and smooth once more. Oh, and we wrote down all her tips to share with you…
1. During the winter use a dry texturising spray and have a good brush like those made by Mason Pearson to hand. This will help with the static as a result of going from the cold to indoor central heating.
We love: Oribe Texturising Spray, £38. This award-winning spray is loved by both celebrities and beauty bloggers and now the beauty desk love it, too. It’s an instant fix for annoying flyaways, can be used as an alternative to dry shampoo and doesn’t leave hair looking dry or brittle. We’re hooked.
2. As soon as you come in from the cold, jump straight into a warm shower and shampoo your hair, then towel dry and put on a moisture masque, which you’d ideally sleep in. As soon as you wake up the following morning, rinse your hair out with cool water and then blow-dry with a low heat using your Mason Pearson brush to keep the static at bay.
We love: Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omega Repair Intensive Mask, £5.49. This moisturising mask only needs to be left on for a minute or two to start repairing hair, so there’s no waiting around in the shower while it goes to work at repairing damage and smoothing split ends. The end result is super-soft and shiny hair. Best of all? It won’t break the bank.
3. Use oils such as black cumin and jasmine to revitalise the proteins in strands of hair. A head massage and blast of heat will stimulate the blood supply to the scalp and get the essentials oils doing their magic!
We love: Ojon Rare Blend Oil Rejuvenating Therapy, £30. The jasmine oil in this product restores bounce and shine to hair. It is also extremely lightweight so won’t weigh fine hair down as it adds a touch of gloss.
