Kiss goodbye to winter wrecking your perfect hair game, it’s time for you to overhaul your haircare. No longer do you need to worry about a downpour dampening your fresh blow-dry or perfectly curled locks – who are we kidding, it’s New Zealand after all.
The cold weather combined with the dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on your locks resulting in split ends and breakage. Granted, half of us are still waiting on that all too valuable hair appointment we booked pre lockdown, there are a few old-favourites & recent releases which will help glow up our at-home hair routine.
Virtue Labs Exfoliating Scalp Treatment
Exfoliation isn’t just for the face – I know, welcome to 2020. Virtue’s light, whipped crème sheds off dead skin cells to balance and condition even the oiliest of scalps. If a reset is what you’re after, or you have been struggling with a dry scalp, exfoliation is the way. Apply between your regular shampoo and condition, the Exfoliating Scalp Treatment couldn’t be simpler to slot in.
Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil
As we head into warmer months, we can finally whip out the styling tools without fear of a little rain. The first-of-its-kind, Olaplex’s restorative styling oil vows to improve shine and texture. And better yet – are we turn the heat up – No.7 Bonding Oil provides heat protection of up to 230℃.
ghd Rise™ Hot Brush
We already have a lot to thank ghd for, so it’s no surprise the ghd’s newest hot tool, Rise™, is a crowd favourite. Unlike its predecessor, the glide, this hot brush is more about creating height and volume rather than taming the frizz. The rounded barrel hot brush sports nylon bristles, designed for maximum lift, allowing you to get close and personal with your roots. The difference between this and a blow-dry? You don’t need a brush in one hand and a dryer in the other!
Kyn Hyaluronic Acid
The spotlight ingredient has made it’s way from skincare to haircare! The serum for your hair, Kyn’s Hyaluronic Acid (HA) packs in hydration, breathing life back into uninspired hair. Not only does it draw in moisture, but strengthens and protects the hair from breakage. Apply a few drops to damp hair post-wash, or use as a pre-wash scalp treatment overnight and wake up with nourished and softer locks.
IGK OFFLINE 3 Minute Hydrating Hair Mask
Mask from top to toe with the Hydrating Hair Mask from IGK. Offering UV protection and restoration of damaged hair in just three minutes – yes, three minutes. Pop it on, shave, and rinse out – there’s no time to be wasted. Step out of the shower with intently hydrated hair that’s protected against any future damage. Added Bonus – the packaging definitely doesn’t disappoint,, we all need a bit of holographic gold in our lives!
Slip Silk Turban
We all know a silk pillow is the cat’s pyjamas, but Slip is levelling up over-night hair protection. Their latest creation, the Silk Turban will defend your hair from friction while you sleep, with its double-lined headwear. Designed using the highest grade of mulberry silk, Slip only has your hair’s best interests at heart.
Me Today Beauty – Hair, Skin & Nails Supplement

Me Today’s Beauty supplement contains the essential nutrients to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails. Focusing on wellness, with one capsule a day, will be reflected on the outside, resulting in robust and healthy hair.
