Treat Yo’self: 7 Beauty Splurges To Make This Week
Struggling with an itchy scalp or a case of Hermione Granger hair from constant run-ins with the curling iron? We've the exact solution for your woes.| October 5, 2017
We tend to neglect hair a lot. Blessed with oily scalps and Singapore’s tropical heat, we’ve got no choice but to rinse our scalps out on the daily. The idea of designating one day of the week to wash your hair is completely foreign to us. Now, here’s the real struggle: because we wash it everyday, natural oils from our roots are constantly stripped, again and again, until our locks start to develop dandruff. Those pesky, flakey bane of our existence. That’s not all – there’s itchiness, dry ends and hair loss. We’re not painting a pretty picture here, but it’s the truth. Hair oils help with taming the frizz, but it doesn’t help our plight.
Avoiding Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) has not worked and neither does going organic. If you can relate, don’t fret now. We’ve got the goods to help you eradicate the need to attack that scalp in public. The key to this is understanding the type of repair you need. Looking to soothe that itchy and flaky scalp? Sachajuan has your back. Or, maybe you’ve got thinning and lacklustre locks, which can be fixed with a couple drops of hair oil from Mauli Rituals if you apply on your scalp instead of the ends. This week’s splurges are all for your returning glory to your locks, because it’s time to treat them right.
Philip B Katira Hair Masque
Humidity isn’t great for your hair – flat and limp is all we’re left with. This hair mask is made without hair oils that you may feel grateful for, as it will provide you that added oomph for some bombshell action. It’s suitable for all hair types, and is to be left overnight for maximum effect.
Oribe Split End Seal
It’s not fun to have split ends, and it’s worse if you’ve got short hair. And if you’re not up for a pixie cut anytime soon, this split end seal will be a godsend to you. This seal promises to really seal your split ends together with a Special Polymer Blend.
Christophe Robin Cleansing Mask with Lemon
We all know how damaging colouring and perming our hair is, but we can’t stop doing it. If you’re fed up with grass-like hair and frizziness, try this gentle mask that won’t strip away your natural oils. It balances pH levels and nourishes follicles too. But best of all, it helps to retain your hair colour.
Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo
Hey, all you poor souls struggling with an itchy scalp. This ginger extract and menthol blend gives you a cooling sensation, and tingles just the slightest bit. It’s also got salicylic acid, which will help if you’ve got any clogged pores as it helps to also gently exfoliate.
R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste
Paste sounds weird to you? Don’t worry, because this one turns into a powder when you apply it. Made with clay for balance to the heavy oils in both your hair and the product, this promises to not only absorb, but moisturise as well.
Mauli Rituals Grow Strong Hair Oil
This topical hair oil will do your hair well through and through. Instead of focusing on your ends, this oil can also be used on your scalp, and can also be left overnight. We recommend wrapping a towel around your head to avoid soaking your pillow with oil and to keep all the good stuff in.
Rossano Ferreti Vita Rejuvenating Serum
Just like how the skin on our face needs serum for nourishment, the hair on our scalp needs that same treatment. This formula is easily absorbed by your skin, and makes use of the power of hyaluronic acid and konjac extract, to hydrate and revitalise your tresses.
Ouai Thinning Hair Supplement
Sometimes, desperate times call for desperate measures. If it’s possible to pop pills in the name for clear skin, it makes sense to do the same for glowing, shiny hair. Other than the usual Omega 3 and 6 and amino acid, Ashwagandha is included in this little supplement as well to reduce stress levels.
