Hair woes are a concern for most of us, whether it’s damaged and brittle or greasy and frizzy, we never seem to be happy when it comes to our manes. Once our hair has sustained damage, it enters a vicious cycle that needs constant care and attention and ultimately breaks off. So if you love a daily blow dry or colour your hair on a monthly basis, pay close attention and follow these five golden haircare rules to rid yourself of damage, once and for all.
Minimise drying time
Knock time off your hair drying routine – and in the process minimise heat damage – with a pro-level hair dryer. Choosing a hair dryer with a powerful motor will dry your hair faster. And combined with clever technologies such as frizz-minimising and shine-boosting ions, hair looks healthy and glossy in a matter of minutes.
Bio Ionic GrapheneMX™ Professional Dryer is an ultra-hydrating hair dryer that dries hair in a flash. What about a 3-in-1 hair dryer, with a built-in scalp and skin mode for locking in moisture? Then there's travel-friendly options too like the T3 Ft Compact Hair Dryer.
Choose the right hair styling tool
We always get told if we want luscious, silky hair to steer clear of heat and leave hair be. However, for most of us, it’s not always possible to let hair dry naturally post-shower or avoid the straighteners. Because let's face it, no one's opting for an untamed mane if you've got a big night out ahead.
We're here to tell you that you don’t need to avoid heat entirely when it comes to looking after your hair, it just takes a bit of consideration and the right products. And we're pleased to say that haircare technology has come a long way.
Haircare brands are designing devices with every hair type and texture in mind, so you can find the perfect styling tool for your hair. Award-winning technology including ceramic-coated plates, steam-based styling and hydrating ionic technology – all work to minimise frizz, reduce heat damage and boost your hair's natural shine.
Strengthen hair from the inside
External factors ave a huge influence on your hair, but what are you doing for your insides that help boost your hair health. Our CURRENTBODY skin Hair, Skin and Nail Gummies contains 100% or more of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Zinc, and Selenium. Zinc helps maintain normal hair, skin and nails. Biotin & selenium helps normal hair and skin function too.
The tasty, blueberry-flavoured hair skin and nails gummies are best taken twice daily. Each bottle of CURRENTBODY skin Hair, Skin and Nail Gummies contains a month-long supply of the best vitamins for skin combined with the best vitamins for hair growth.
Get the salon treatment at home
Take care of your locks with tons of haircare treatments that will boost shine and increase softness. We’ve got hair masks that reduce brassy tones and expert formulas for heat protection. If you prefer to leave your hair care products in, the Beauty Works 10-in-1 Miracle Spray is a dream – delivering 10 benefits in one convenient spray. Or choose REDUIT’s revolutionary hair care line with a variety of different treatments, depending on what your hair needs.
Invest in smart brush tech
Over brushing and using the wrong tool can cause drastic damage to your strands. Pulling and tugging tangled strands with the wrong brush cause breakage and can quickly thin your hair. Make sure you're using a brush specifically designed to comb through wet hair when you're blow drying. The Wetbrush Speed Dry or ikoo Paddle X are perfect for this, because they have vent as the back to let air pass through.
Bristle materials have different benefits too. Boar bristles – like those on the Beauty Works Paddle Brush – distribute oils evenly through your hair, meaning a less oily scalp and more nourished ends.
