Throughout winter, maintaining your scalp and hair health is a must. But given the current climate, not many of us have the extra moolah to spend on expensive hair care treatments.
Luckily, supermarket shelves have started stocking some seriously exciting new launches from all of our favourite budget-friendly brands. We’ve rounded up the hair care heroes that we’ll being adding to our weekly supermarket shop:
Pantene Pro-V Blend Rosewater Moisture Restoring Shampoo
Love micellar water for cleansing skin? Then you’ll love this rosewater shampoo from Pantene. Packed full of micelles that cling to dirt, impurities and toxins, this rose-scented shampoo helps to effectively cleanse hair without stripping it completely dry. Plus, the handy pump dispenser and pretty pink packaging makes this an aesthetically-pleasing addition to any shower line-up.
John Frieda Detox & Repair And Protect Spray
If you’re addicted to your straighteners, this nourishing heat protectant from John Frieda is the one for you. The formula is enriched with green tea and avocado oil to help nourish even the most dry and damaged tresses, all while protecting your precious strands from further damage caused by heat styling. Sorted.
Herbal Essences Sulphate-Free Honey & Vitamin B Conditioner
Colour-safe and pH-balanced, this honey-infused offering from Herbal Essences packs a serious hydrating punch. And with a no-nasties formula that boasts 90% naturally derived ingredients, it’s a great choice for those who need something that’s gentle on hair.
Head & Shoulders Supreme 0% Purify & Volume Shampoo
It’s winter people. That means dry, itchy scalps and, if you’re really lucky, a bad case of dandruff. The OG’s of anti-dandruff hair care, Head & Shoulders, have recently reformulated their purify & volume shampoo with a formula that’s free from parabens, silicones and colourants to help maintain a healthy and protected scalp all winter long.
OGX Coconut Milk Dry Shampoo
If you love dry shampoo but hate the texture it adds to your hair, this dry shampoo from OGX is one to add to the kit. The coconut milk-enriched formula leaves strands silky, soft and nourished, plus the delicious coconut scent will instantly transport you to warmer climates.
Maui Moisture Awapuwhi Conditioner
With aloe vera and coconut water on the ingredient list, the new Awapuwhi range from Maui Moisture sounds more like a smoothie than a conditioner. The real star of the show is the Awapuwhi ginger flower, which helps to soften hair and leave strands with an enviable shine.
Monday Sensitive Shampoo
If all the stress of COVID-19 has started to have some effect on your hair, this sensitive shampoo from new cult-brand Monday is one to keep an eye out for. You’ll have to be quick though, the brand is so popular, the product is always quickly sold out after re-stocking. Run don’t walk.
