Hair SOS: 4 steps to healthy hair Product build up and excess heat styling can take its toll so here are our tips and tricks, straight from centre:mk HQ, on how to revive dull and stressed hair 1. Switch to a clarifying shampoo These are formulated not only to cleanse hair from daily grime but to break down the chemical build up – without stripping hair of its natural protective barriers. Try Phyto Phytoneutre Clarifying Detox Shampoo at John Lewis (£12.50). Infused with Eucalyptus oil and Witch Hazel, it’ll get to work on stimulating your scalp straight away. Use twice a week to notice the difference. 2. Use oils daily… Treat your hair regime the same as you would your skincare. A daily drop of hair oil will help top up the goodness. Percy & Reed’s Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair at Boots (£14) is crammed with hair-repair vitamins, nourishing seed oil and it will help to tame frizz on a daily basis. 3. and masks weekly We tend to forget about hair masks – we usually reach for them as part of a post-holiday SOS regime and then neglect them for the rest of the year. However, if you introduce an oil rich mask with UV protection, like the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque at Boots (£28.95), not only will it restore brilliant shine but it will cut down drying time, protecting hair and maintaining that healthy look. 4. Limit heat styling What would the world look like without a good old hairdryer? A bit fuzzier we would imagine. As brilliant as they are at speedily drying our drenched locks and smoothing hair cuticles for a more impressive shine, trying to limit your usage will keep hair in better condition. Leave locks in a turban towel to dry overnight wherever possible - this way you won’t double up on the heat styling. We love the BaByliss Elegance Hair Dryer at Boots (£40).
