Detox Your Hair With Our Easy Guide

Detox Your Hair With Our Easy Guide

With the seasons changing and our busy LFW schedule having come to an end, it’s time to treat our tresses to a detox. While we all take excellent care of our skin when we notice the impact of stress and the weather, we can often forget to take that same care of our hair.

Just like a juice cleanse for our body, or multi-masking for our complexions, our hair needs that same treatment to keep it nourished and growing strong. Utilising products that exfoliate, cleanse and hydrate your locks will mean that just like your skin, your locks will become radiant and healthy.

Following a simple routine once a month will keep your hair gorgeous throughout the changing seasons so that no matter what the weather or your lifestyle throws at you, you can be sure your tresses will always look fabulous.

Healthy Haircare Routine

  1. Exfoliate Your Scalp

    Exfoliate Your Scalp

    Exfoliating the hair might sound like a new concept, but think of it as doing the same job as exfoliating your skin. A build-up of product, dead skin cells and dandruff can accumulate throughout the fibres and on your scalp, which can leave your locks limp, dry and dull. Just like you use a gentle scrub to buff your way to a glowing complexion, make sure you do the same for you hair.

    We love Christophe Robin’s Purifying Sea Salt Scrub that is suitable for even the most sensitive of scalps. It helps to refresh the scalp and leave it well-moisturised ready to take on the colder weather.

  2. Strengthen Your Locks

    Strengthen Your Locks

    Like multi-masking for your skin, we love to use a duo of hair masks to make sure our tresses receive the best treatment. This means that your locks receive all the necessary nutrients to keep them growing healthy and strong.

    The first mask we recommend is the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, which helps to add pliability and flexibility. If you have noticed your hair becoming a bit lacklustre and flat then this mask will completely transform that.

    The difference with this mask is that you use it before shampooing! Simply leave on for 15 minutes, rinse and shampoo, and your locks will be super light and bouncy.

  3. Use A Cleansing Shampoo

    Use A Cleansing Shampoo

    Your regular shampoo is brilliant for every-day use, but once a week alternate it with a cleansing shampoo that will remove product build-up and excess oil. It will help keep your hair lightweight and voluminous, as well as healthy. This is especially true if you are a swimmer; as chlorine and chemicals within the pool can leave your locks damaged.

    We love to use the Redken Hair Cleansing Cream, which contains a blend of Fruit Acids to add shine and essential hydration into the hair, gently cleansing it of dirt and build-up.

  4. Hydrate Your Hair

    Hydrate Your Hair

    It’s now time to use a hydrating hair mask to add essential moisture back into dry and damaged fibres. The heat of the summer and the changing autumnal temperatures can leave your locks looking and feeling a little less than healthy, so adding in an overnight masque once a week will amend that.

    We love the Grow Gorgeous Overnight to Gorgeous Hair Masque, which contains a soothing blend of Lavender and Forest Woods to help you sleep. The key ingredients however are Amazonian Acai Oil and Hyaluronic Acid to plump up each individual hair fibre with moisture and get them back glowing!

    The Seal Of Approval

    Once you have given your hair a true pampering session, the next day you will find it completely transformed and gorgeous. Just make sure you keep up its healthy routine, by adding in a lightweight oil that protects it from heat and environmental damage.

    The Grow Gorgeous Strengthening Oil is enriched with Omega 3 and Chia Seed Oil to nourish your hair and protect it from everyday damage, including harsh brushing.
