Winter weather and central heating played havoc with your hair? Mine too. Fortunately sunnier climes are on the way so it’s time to freshen up your haircare routine
We have rounded up our favourite haircare products to lift your locks in time for the sunshine.
Haircare products for Spring – Phil Smith Total Treat Indulgent Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner – the perfect solution for winter damaged hair. (RRP £4.50 each).
The moisturising and strengthening, coconut scented shampoo helps transform damaged, dry and coloured hair to silky smoothness. Moroccan Argan Oil helps hydrate and protect from heat damage, tame-flyaways and reduce the appearance of split-ends whilst adding a beautiful, healthy shine. These are all things that our hair suffers from in winter due to exposure to more central heating, changing temperatures and the taking on and off of layers (this really amps up static and split ends!)
The matching ultra rich conditioner helps deliver top-level pampering for stressed out hair. Also with Moroccan Argan Oil, the nourishing formula helps transform and protect,, leaving locks shiny and soft. Leave on for 15 mins or longer for an intensive conditioning treatment for extra hydration and shine.
