With a simple approach to hair care and clean, minimalist packaging that will make aesthetes swoon, Sachajuan is bringing the best of Scandi chic to our bathrooms.
The first thing you need to know about Sachajuan, setting aside those good looks, is its ethos. The brand’s earnest approach to making care for your hair as uncomplicated as possible is its calling card, and the guys behind the brand – Swedish hairdressers Sacha Mitic and Juan Rosenlind – are seriously passionate about making their products as effortless as possible.
Their’s is a laidback, holistic approach, with the end goal of making hair both look and feel natural, manageable and healthy. There’s no ultra-teased bouffants here; just free-flowing, bouncy locks.
So if you’re looking to achieve that ultra-fresh, Scandi girl vibe (form an orderly queue, please), you’ve reached the right place. Here are the icons and bestsellers that you need to know about…
Easy, Breezy Styling
Best for: All hair types, particularly fine
This is the product that kickstarted my love of all things Sachajuan. If you’re pretty low-key when it comes to your hair (I for one favour those extra few minutes in bed), this ultra lightweight formula will transform your approach to styling.
Ocean Mist is like salt spray lite, delicately misting through the lengths and ends of your hair to give the sort of blown-out volume that normally only comes from spending a day at the beach. It gives great, matte texture, but it doesn’t feel dry, and it takes your hair from flat to touseled in just a few seconds. I wouldn’t be without this one.
A Shot of Nourishment
Best for: Normal to dry hair, weakened ends
Oil is your hair’s best friend. Ever noticed that your hair feels much better after it’s been brushed? It’s not just because your brush has worked all of the tangles out – it’s because it also helps to distribute oils from the top of your head all the way through to the bottom. As your hair gets longer and older, it invariably gets drier and weaker, and that’s where the Sachajuan Intensive Hair Oil really comes into its own.
This blend of sea buckthorn, sunflower seed and argan oils envelops each strand in intense nourishment thanks to a high fatty acid content, which also works to strengthen weakened strands. Hair will feel so healthy and manageable after use – it’s a bit of a miracle worker, this one.
Tip: Use from mid-length to ends for best results – avoid the top of your hair unless you’re using the hair oil as a pre-shampoo treatment.
Best for: Dry hair
Even if you’re top of the class with regular trims, there will always be times when your hair needs extra support. After swimming, after a day in the sun, after heat styling… there are so many moments in the day when your strands are exposed to stress.
Sachajuan Hair Repair is a once-a-week rescue treatment that will help get your worse for wear hair back into shape. My favourite thing about it is its lightweight texture; even though it’s exceptionally nourishing, hair always feels light and bouncy after use.
Tip: If your hair is in a state of bad disrepair, use Overnight Hair Repair as a more frequent overnight mask.
Get To The Root Of It
Best for: Itchy, flaky scalps
Dandruff can often feel like a bit of a taboo subject, but it shouldn’t be. We should show our scalps the same amount of love and care that we show to our skin – and that starts with the right product.
The Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo could quite possibly take the crown for being the world’s most elegant anti-dandruff shampoo. Within you’ll find a power-packed formula comprised of soothing piroctone olamine, nourishing rosemary oil, exfoliating salicylic acid and cooling menthol, which maintain your scalp’s healthy balance. You’ll be feeling fresh in no time.
Tip: Tag team this with the Scalp Treatment for hair nirvana.
Flowers In Your Hair
Best for: Everyone!
And now for something a little different. The Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume is a multi-purpose spritz that will delicately scent your hair, with the added bonus of protecting it against the harmful effects of UV rays, whilst eliminating static and giving your hair a healthy sheen.
Though wearing perfume in your hair may seem like an unnecessary extra, it’ll transform the way you wear fragrance. Hair retains scent incredibly well, and the heat from your head intensifies the notes beautifully. The result? A subtly intoxicating waft of floral accords every time your hair moves. So instead of reaching for your usual fragrance, mist this romantic apple, rose and musk scent through your hair and make cheek kisses extra special.
Tip: When you’ve got limited space in your bag, take this – it’s perfume, protection and shine in one.
