Whether you’re blonde, brunette or redhead, everyone, and we mean everyone is affected by the humidity in Singapore. It’s not uncommon to have to deal with frizzy locks that are also greasy at the roots or hair that’s gone limp a day after shampooing, so we’ve rounded up the hair care heroes that will help tame your tresses and solve that bad hair day your hair dilemmas.
Soft and Silky
Free from sulphates and silicone, L’Oréal’s new EverSleek Precious Oil Treatment contains nourishing ingredients including sunflower, olive and argan oils to fight frizz without weighing down hair. Simply apply to wet or dry hair, style and go. $21.90.
Say goodbye to frizzy hair with a single swipe of the BeLiss Pro Hair Brush. Combining ionic technology with gentle bristles, this brush will take on the Singapore humidity and actually win. Available at Nila Aromatherapy Bar, $68.
Those of us with fine hair know that achieving volume can be a struggle. You can now give your locks a boost with Root Lift Spray from Dove’s Volume Nourishment range. Its oxygen-infused formulas will aid you in your quest for bigger, healthier-looking hair. $16.90; grab a bottle at Watsons.
We don’t often get excited about hair supplements, but we’re making an exception for Viviscal Professional’s dietary one. The course nourishes and strengthens existing hair to protect against future breakage. Full of natural ingredients, its secret ingredient is AminoMar C, a marine complex that promises to promotes growth. Get yours at Privé Clinic, #03-03 Palais Renaissance.
Well known for its natural approach to beauty, boutique label Nila has recently introduced hair care products into its store, and they’re definitely worth a try. The range combines essential oils with quality hair care ingredients. We recommend pairing the water-based Anti-Damage hair protector, which adds moisture, with the Tranquil Shampoo for its strengthening action. Available at Nila Aromatherapy Bar.
Dry shampoo can save the day, especially when your hair is falling flat or looking a bit greasy. Toni & Guy’s new range of four dry shampoos for different needs has taken this miracle-in-a-can one step further. Glamour will skyrocket the volume of your hair, while Causal adds a nice matte finish and some extra texture; Classic has the light hold of a hairspray, and Creative will add the boost that a creative look needs. Toni & Guy Dry Shampoo, $15.90.
Kerastase has created an innovative new range for different hair types. Resistance Therapiste uses the American-born “reverse shampoo” technique of conditioning hair before shampooing, starting with Soin Premier Therapiste – surprising, but effective. Finish off both the fine and the thick hair routine with a few pumps of Double Serum Therapiste, a repairing serum that doubles as a heat protectant. Prices from $39 to $70
