A staple to keep in your collection is a Wet Brush. These brushes are specifically designed to be used on wet hair, but they work great on dry hair or extensions as well! They have soft bristles that detangle without tugging on your hair, which can cause damage! Brush glides through tangles with ease. It features ultra-soft Intelli-Flex bristles with exclusive poly tips that are extremely gentle to aid in the prevention of hair loss, split ends and breakage.
SALON- QUALITY BLOW DRYER
All our experts agree that a quality blow dryer is worth the investment. Your hair won’t look like you just got a professional blowout without a salon blow dryer. A well-made, powerful dryer cuts drying time in half. Here are a few of our experts’ favourites:
Parlux 3200 Ionic & Ceramic Edition Compact Hair Dryer. Compact professional hairdryer which produces frizz-free, high-gloss results on all hair types. This hairdryer emits negative ions, which reduces static electricity and stress on the hair and this means healthier hair. The hair dries faster as the water molecules are broken down into micro-molecules. Moisture can then easily penetrate the hair shaft, leaving it moisturised and looking soft and shiny.
LEAVE IN CONDITIONER
Using a leave-in conditioner might seem unnecessary to some but hair care experts beg to disagree. They believe that this is a crucial tool in your hair care routine because it can save time by making hair soft enough to easily detangle and style however you want. In addition, it provides more hydration into your hair for fuller locks all day long.
HEAT PROTECTION SPRAY
This is a must for women who like to use hot tools for styling. A heat protection spray is a good way to preserve the health and natural shine of your hair. Heat damage, after all, is one of the leading causes of dry and frizzy hair. The Schwarzkopf OSiS Flatliner Heat Protection Spray creates a veil over your hair, shielding every strand from the consequences of heat damage, humidity and styling tools up to 230°C. Suitable for use on damp or dry locks, the non-sticky spray works to prevent split ends and reduce breakage, leaving you with healthy-looking, super smooth strands from root to tip. Provides strong control, allowing you to create a salon-worthy finish from home.
Flat iron is a very handy tool to have around for hair care. It enables you to quickly smooth out frizz or styling your hair with some light waves. Even if you don’t straighten your hair, with the Silver Bullet Keratin 230 Titanium Standard Plate, you can smooth out frizz around your hairline or even use it to add volume and waves, creating faster curls, flick and waves.
Washing your hair with shampoo on a daily basis is not recommended. Most of us don’t wash our hair every day, and most hairstylists agree that’s a good thing. And while fewer washes may mean a healthier scalp and softer ends, it also can mean greasy roots and a smelly head. Dry shampoo can be a lifesaver when you need to freshen up your hair in a pinch, which makes it a great essential to always keep on hand! However, it’s important to use dry shampoo sparingly–you want to stay away from creating too much buildup. An amazing dry shampoo from LFHair is the Joico Weekend Dry Shampoo. With oil-absorbing ingredients and volume boosters that deliver a gorgeous just-washed fullness, this timesaving spray gives you fresh, clean, velvety-soft hair ANY day of the week.
Yes, everyone needs oil. Applying oil to the hair is vital in keeping the strands and ends healthy. Also, it is a quick way to deal with frizz and add instant shine. If you are skeptical about using oil in fear that it might make your hair look too greasy, look for specialised formula that will moisturise hair without weighing it down or looking greasy- even those of us with baby fine hair. And there are formulas that won’t make hair look greasy, we love L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Absolute Repair Wheat Oil Nourishing Serum It’s not an oily oil, but a luxurious moisturising oil that won’t weigh your hair down. It will actually cut your drying time down too.
CERAMIC ROUND BRUSH
Just like the blow dryer, our experts say a quality brush will give you a better final look. A great ceramic brush will speed your drying time aswell. Nano Technology Ceramic + Ionic Round Brush Double bristles of natural boar hair plus nylon pins hold hair on the brush for effective styling while blow drying. A rubberised anti-slip design handle provides a comfortable grip for hairstyles that require a firm grip for lengthy amounts of blow drying time.
SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
OK, this is a no brainer, but choosing the right Shampoo and Conditioner combo for your hair is essential. In order to make the most out of this hair care product, you need to focus on finding the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. For women with naturally fine hair, a moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner is recommended for nourishing your hair strands.
Every hair type is unique. There is an important reason why you must identify your hair type – to help you pick the right shampoo or hair care product specially formulated for that hair type. The difference lies not just in hair length or thickness as several factors can come into play. When it comes to picking the right Shampoo & Conditioner, you will find there are different formulations not just for hair type, but also for the different hair concerns. As such, you can find a Shampoo & Conditioner according to the level of damage or type of hair concern. INSIGHT Professional has an extensive range of Shampoo / Conditioner formulations to match your hair care needs, to help you create your own daily ritual of beauty and wellness.
Experts believe this is the last and most critical touch to styling your hair. Hairspray is a must for any kind of hairstyle. Make sure to go for a lightweight, flexible-hold formula. This way you can use it whether your hair is down and loose or slicked into an updo. A great MEDIUM HOLD Hairspray is INSIGHT STYLING MEDIUM HOLD ECOSPRAY, it’s available in two strengths but it comes in two amazing smells (peach or wild rose with passion fruit) AND it’s pump action and therefore made without gas making it eco-friendly; making it one of our most popular products on the shelves.
