Top 5 Hair Products Chosen by Linea’s Pro Stylists

1. Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner

Your journey towards healthier, more vibrant hair starts with selecting a high-quality, hydrating shampoo and conditioner. These fundamental hair care products effectively cleanse your hair and scalp, removing dirt, oil, and product build-up without causing dryness or irritation. The right shampoo and conditioner duo will leave your hair feeling soft, smooth, and nourished.

Some professional recommendations include Kevin.Murphy Hydrate-Me Wash and Rinse, which harnesses the power of Kakadu Plum extract and Shea Butter, providing intense hydration and a lustrous shine. Pairing the right shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type and needs can make a world of difference in the appearance and health of your locks.

2. Heat Protectant Spray

Exposure to high temperatures from styling tools such as hair dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can damage and weaken hair, leading to breakage, split ends, and dullness. Therefore, incorporating a heat protectant spray into your hair care routine is essential, as it forms a protective barrier that shields your hair from heat damage.

A popular choice among professionals is the ghd Heat Protect Spray, which offers a lightweight mist and protection for up to 220°C. To use a heat protectant spray, spritz evenly throughout damp or dry hair before using any heat styling tools, ensuring that your hair is evenly coated and protected from potential heat damage.

3. Nourishing Hair Oil or Serum

To achieve smooth, shiny, and manageable hair, a nourishing hair oil or serum is a must-have in your hair care arsenal. These potent elixirs provide various benefits, such as sealing the hair cuticle, reducing frizz, promoting shine, and protecting hair from environmental damage.

One exceptional product recommended by hairstylists is the Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil. This highly concentrated hair oil goes beyond hydration and shine improvement, actively repairing damaged hair bonds resulting from chemical treatments and heat styling. To incorporate a hair oil or serum into your hair care regime, apply a small amount to clean, damp hair from mid-lengths to ends, massaging it evenly. You can also apply a few drops to dry hair for extra shine and smoothness.

4. Dry Shampoo

A game-changing hair care product, dry shampoo is perfect for those days when you're short on time, freshening up your locks without the need for water. Available in various formulas, such as aerosol sprays, loose powders, and sprays, dry shampoo works by absorbing excess oil, sweat, and odour, leaving your hair looking and smelling fresh.

A cult favourite is the Batiste Dry Shampoo, which comes in various fragrances and formulations, including options for specific hair types and colours. To use dry shampoo effectively, part your hair and spray the product evenly at the roots or apply the loose powder directly to your scalp, focusing on the oily areas. Wait a few moments for the dry shampoo formula to absorb the excess oil, then brush or massage the product through your hair with your fingertips.

5. Leave-in Conditioner or Detangler

Leave-in conditioners and detanglers are invaluable products in promoting healthy, manageable hair. These lightweight, versatile solutions provide much-needed moisture, help to detangle hair, reduce frizz, and protect your hair from environmental factors.

An excellent example is the Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment, which offers 11 different benefits, including heat protection, hydration, and detangling. To use a leave-in conditioner or detangler, apply a small amount to clean, towel-dried hair, then comb through with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers, ensuring even coverage. Allow your hair to air dry or proceed with heat styling, as the product will help protect your hair from damage.

Additional Tips for Choosing the Right Hair Care Products

When selecting hair care products, always consider your unique hair type, needs, and preferences:

  • Assess your hair's condition (e.g., dry, oily, damaged) and choose products designed to address those specific issues.
  • Look for hair care products free of harsh sulfates, as these can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle.
  • Pay attention to the ingredients in your hair care products, opting for those with natural, high-quality ingredients, and avoiding excessive amounts of alcohol, silicones, and synthetic fragrances.
  • Consult with your hairstylist, as they can provide personalised recommendations tailored to your hair type and needs.
