Here is Your Pre-summer Prep Plan For Glossy, Healthy Hair

Go forth and fortify! Prevention is better than cure, so seal your locks with these power treatments before you hit the sand, sun and surf.

Spring is a funny time, a sartorial puberty of sorts when we are tentatively shaking off those winter layers and boosting both our spirits and complexions with vitamins that will take us into the next season.

This is why I thought I would put together this hair special for you, as I know spring is a time when many of you are considering a change of colour, or simply the space to nourish your locks before the summer elements really take their toll.

Different hair types need different types of treatment, so follow along below to pick the perfect preventative cure, no matter your tresses situation.




TRESemmé Botanique Damage Recovery Oil Elixir

This delish Recovery Oil spray is infused with macadamia oil, wheat proteins and avocado.

Combining the nourishing and smoothing benefits of an oil with the weightlessness of a shine spray, it’s perfect for thinner hair that needs a little love post-processing or elemental exposure. This amazing spray will boost the strength without weighing it down.

While this is a lot lighter, it penetrates really deeply, whether your hair is damaged and treated or natural… while remaining weightless.




Ouai Leave-In Conditioner

This super-hydrating pre-style spray is a leave-in conditioner, detangler, and heat protectant—all in one. It primes hair for styling, protects against heat, and smooths frizz and flyaways for a silky, lustrous, healthy look.

Due to its lush heavier texture, it’s great for thicker, coarser dry hair, perhaps that has been chemically treated, coloured or permed.





O&M The Power Base Protein Masque

O&M Power Base is a protein masque especially designed for repairing damaged hair.

This intense dual action treatment works to restore your mane from within. Wheat Protein reconstructs weakened hair to bind broken strands while Apricot Kernel Oil and Sweet Almond will moisturise and nourish the hair’s exterior.

If your hair is weak, limp and doesn’t hold volume or a curl, think of this protein treatment like meat – it builds muscle.





Sisley Revitalizing Fortifying Serum

The Revitalizing Fortifying Serum for the scalp is highly concentrated in plant-based extracts, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Working deep within, this fortifying serum energises the hair bulb to help keep the hair anchored, making it more resistant and protecting its natural colour.

Best of all, it literally makes your hair grow thicker!




L’OCCITANE Aromachologie Repairing Mask

Literally transform your hair from dry and damaged to strong and shiny with the Aromachologie Repairing Mask.

For dehydrated, damaged hair types, this will soak right into your hair. This new formula contains an anti-breakage complex, made with five essential oils (ylang-ylang, sweet orange, lavender, geranium, angelica) and plant-derived amino acids, which help repair the hair fibre. It also captures the richness of shea butter and sweet almond oil in which help to soften and protect.
