AA Skincare are still expanding their range of Ayurvedic inspired beauty products, and in addition to their shower gels and shampoos have introduced a lovely range of conditioners, designed to tackle any hair type or problem you can think of.
My hair is very prone to oiliness and gets very greasy if not washed on a daily basis. In addition I find many shampoos can be too heavy and leave an unpleasant residue which leaves my hair dull and dirty looking. Then Daniel Galvin Jr Organic Head Detox Shampoo walked into my life!
You may be familiar with Dermalogica as a skincare brand, but did you know that they now do shampoo and conditioner? I recently tested the range out so read on to find out how I got on.
If you are fed up of wet hair that takes ages to dry, or have frizzy and damaged hair that needs extra care, you need the AQUIS Hair Turban in your life.
The AQUIS Essentials Lisse Luxe Hair Turban (RRP £30)* is made of a unique material called Aquitex. Super soft and highly absorbant this fabric rapidly wicks water away from the hair, reducing the drying time of your hair. It is also incredibly lightweight, so unlike a towel it doesn’t tug and stretch the hair, meaning its much kinder to delicate tresses. The turban itself is also very quick drying and after half an hour on the radiator or washing line it is bone dry and ready to use again.
There is nothing worse than that burning sensation caused by an itchy scalp, and it can be especially embarrassing if you’re at work, on the bus or in an interview and you just can’t help but scratch to relieve the irritation.
I have a patch of scalp which from time to time feels irritated. I noticed it when I suffered a small amount of hairloss and since then, even though my hair grew back, that area of scalp often feels hot and itchy, and I literally have to sit on my hands to stop me from scratching. When I was sent the Skin Salvation Scalp Oil from Pure Potions to try it was a godsend, really helping alleviate both the immediate irritation but also in the longer term helping to keep the problem at bay.
The SheaMoisture haircare range is designed to give to upmost care to dry, coarse or transitioning hair. Utilising raw Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Avocado Oil and extracts of Sea Kelp it helps restore moisture, elasticity and shine to dull and damaged hair. Until now only available in the USA, the range will be hitting Boots shelves here in the UK from October, and I’ve been lucky enough to have had a sneak peek at their Repair & Transition Kit!
The SheaMoisture Repair & Transition Kit* contains everything you need to care for your tresses naturally, with the Moisture Retention Shampoo, Restorative Conditioner, Deep Treatment Masque and Reconstructive Elixir. As my hair has been misbehaving recently – feeling rough and looking lifeless – I was excited to see if this kit would infuse my hair with some much needed vigour!
I always thought hair treatments were for people with dry, damaged and frizzy hair, not for my distinctly average, non-chemically treated hair. Since growing my hair however I’ve been concious of its condition and I am keen for it to be as healthy as possible, especially as my visits to the hairdresser are less frequent, and I’ve started to take haircare more seriously – including using weekly hair treatments as part of my regimen.
