It seems that all we do in winter is pander to the needs of our locks. Everything is so much duller and drier; what with frizz-inducing heaters, never-ending rain, hair-whipping winds and biting frost to content with, sometimes it’s just easier to pop your hair in a bobble, or don a hat.
This is why the new flurry of hair care that has arrived at Escentual HQ has made us very happy… very happy indeed. The new ranges cater for everyone, ranging from the super-volumising to the intensively repairing, with no hair type left behind. Take a look at what we have in store…
Effective haircare that practices a ‘Free From’ philosophy. That is, none of the products in the range contain any synthetic nasties such as paraffin, mineral oils, formaldehyde and PEG derivatives, silicones or parabens. This means that there’s more room for gorgeous, natural ingredients, allowing Essensity products to be packed full of highly charged organic essences, fruit extracts, floral infusions and essential oils.
The range is great for parched winter locks, as the superfruits and nourishing oils rev up your colour and really improve the health of your hair. The face that the environmentally responsible packaging is 100% recyclable and predominantly biodegradable is the icing on the cake!
The range includes solutions for all major hair complaints, with the Colour line for prolonged colour longevity, Moisture for hair that is parched and dry, Repair for broken and stressed-out hair, Volume for limp locks, and Styling to fix your style.
Another recent range from Schwarzkopf is BlondMe, a comprehensive line of caring and styling products for every possible shade of blonde. Winter months can be especially harsh for blonde hair, with dulling weather and environmental stresses making even the most vibrant of blondes take on a brassy hue. BlondMe works with the underlying tone of your hair, whether cool or warm, to bring out the best in your shade.
The range offers complete care for the weakened structure of blonde hair from chemical processing, with protein-rich treatments, protective styling products and gentle formulations. BlondMe has the needs of full-head and highlighted blondes well and truly covered.
The range includes haircare and styling products for cool, warm and highlighted blondes, with targeted care and colour refreshing treatments for you to mix and match to suit the needs of your individual blonde tone.
Australian-born haircare and styling range Fudge puts the fun firmly back into haircare. Thriving on product innovation, quirky packaging and extreme styling formulations, Fudge encourages you to step out of your comfort zone a little and play with your hair.
