Yeah yeah, we know you’ve got your shampoos and conditioners taking care of your hair. But, are they enough to battle all of the trials and tribulations your precious tresses go through? Or are you one of those individuals who believe that your hair doesn’t need some extra TLC? Uh-uh, if only you knew how terribly wrong you were. Just like your skin needs a routine to keep it healthy and nourished, your hair needs one too. Don’t you even think of ignoring one of the most important steps in haircare!

On most days, we expose our tresses to a ton of external and environmental aggressors which cause so much harm to them. These aggressors range from spending too much time in the sun to spending hours in the pool ( hey, all of that chlorine isn’t great for your hair! ) Let’s not forget all that vanity makes us do for our hair. I’m talking about straightening your hair, getting chemical treatments to combat the frizz and undergoing colourful transformations from time to time. As much as we love them, they do cause a lot of damage to your hair in the long run. Excessive hair fall, thinning of the hair, extreme frizz and dryness— just to name a few. However, you don’t have to give up all of that. We’ve got you covered with a few hair care duos that will have your tresses smooth and healthy as ever.

Moroccanoil, Moroccanoil Treatment Oil and Intense Hydrating Mask

A classic duo that’s always going to be on the top of my favourite haircare duos list, is this one by Moroccanoil. I first used these when I began colouring my hair 6 years ago, and I’m gonna say that’s what kept the damage at bay. The treatment oil comes infused with argan oil, and the moment you squirt some onto your palms— there’s a spicy yet floral scent. It’s a lightweight oil that can either be used on damp hair, as a pre-wash or right before you style your hair. It strengthens your hair and reduces frizz. The hydrating mask just as the name suggests, provides intense hydration to limp hair, making it manageable and shinier.

Kama Ayurveda, Bringadi Kesh Lepam Nourishing and Restoring Pre-wash Hair Mask + Bringadi Intensive Repair Post-Wash Mask

We’ve all enjoyed classic DIY hair masks made by our grandmothers and mothers, amirite? There’s nothing better than the blend of ancient Ayurveda with a tinge of modernity. That’s exactly what Kama Ayurveda brings to us. The pre-wash hair mask is enriched with botanical extracts and essential oils like bhringraj and rosemary essential oil that activate hair proteins, encouraging hair growth along with reducing hairfall. I love giving myself a classic scalp champi with this one! The post-wash mask deep conditions your damaged hair, repairing all of the broken bonds and minimises damage caused by heat styling and chemical treatments.

Okay, let’s be real, who wouldn’t wanna get tresses like the Kardashians? The creator of Ouai is Jen Atkins who has styled the reality TV stars’ hair on multiple occasions. The Hair Oil by Ouai is a non-greasy oil that’s enriched with borage oil and ama oil, both of which are known to strengthen your hair and smoothen frizz. The best part is that it also happens to be colour safe along with providing heat protection. We love a versatile product here! The Fine To Medium Hair Treatment Mask is formulated using ingredients like shea butter, keratin and panthenol which combat frizz and split ends.

Aveda is truly a pioneer when it comes to effective haircare because not only does it provide us with effective solutions, but all of their formulations are kind to the planet too! The Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment comes packed with quinoia protein which is renowned for deeply strengthening damaged hair. It works to prevent any future damage too! The Volumizing Tonic works like a charm on thin hair. It’s enriched with certified organic aloe and wheat amino acids that restore lost shine and add some much-needed volume.

K18, Professional Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mist + Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask

I just dyed my hair ash blonde a couple of months ago, and this duo is what prevented any excessive damage! Although, we must warn you that the K18 Professional Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mist is a salon-only service available at salons like Jean-Claude Biguine and Samantha’s Salon. It’s applied as a pre-treatment before you bleach or dye your hair and is designed to strengthen your hair enough to withstand the damage. Whereas the Molecular Repair Hair Mask is used on damp hair, it seals the peptide in to repair the damage caused by salon treatments. A rare product wherein you can see the after-effects of it just within 4 minutes!
