Multi-Tasking Products To Keep in Your Beauty Cabinet
Starting on a new beauty routine or figuring out a way to save time on your current regimen? As we look for new ways to revamp our hair care this season the last thing any of us want is to sacrifice our style. Luckily, there are plenty of luxurious solutions that save you time while also treating your hair. Read on for the must-have multi-tasking products to keep in your beauty cabinet this season.
Why we love it: This dry shampoo can be used for a second-day refresh or to add volume on fine or thin hair.
Dry shampoo has always been known for its ability to refresh second- or third-day hair, but using it on day one has rewards as well. If you struggle with volume or find your blow-dry falls flat in just a few hours, add FRESH.HAIR to the new growth area after you’ve finished styling to add volume and subtle hold.
Why we love it: A detangler and deep conditioner, it is the perfect leave-in for dry hair or prep for heat styling.
Whether you’ve decided to air dry your natural texture or blow-dry your strands into a stylized shape, UN.TANGLED is the product of choice to prep for either. This deep conditioning leave-in formula strengthens and restores hair while also doubling as an ideal heat protectant, especially for dry hair!
Why we love it: Create undone beach waves, add volume and texture to short hairstyles, or a finishing touch of sheen for session styles.
If you’re looking to create the iconic beach wave you probably already know HAIR.RESORT is the ideal pick. However, this texturizer can also work wonders on alternative styles. We love to add this to damp hair when styling short cuts to give them weightless volume and hold, or painted on finger waves or ponytails for a high fashion editorial finish.
Why we love it: To revive dull second- and third-day styles or to add shine and condition to hairstyles like high ponies or braids.
Sometimes styles need a conditioning touch to refine their lines or combat frizz — this is where dry conditioner comes in handy. A highly conditioning dry spray, YOUNG.AGAIN DRY CONDITIONER can be paired with FRESH.HAIR to revive and restore styles between washing or to add a touch of definition and hydration to your look. By prepping braids or adding a touch of dry conditioner to your up style, you’ll be able to deter fly aways and add a healthy sheen.
Why we love it: This styler is ideal as a leave-in conditioning treatment on damp hair as a finishing spray to add shine, tame flyaways and enhance colour.
The ability to be used on damp or dry hair is already a win in our books, but this cult-favourite styler also has the ability to enhance hair colour, add moisture and elasticity to your look. SHIMMER.SHINE and SHIMMER.ME BLONDE are infused with a blend of Australian Fruit Extracts to nourish the hair while refining texture and controlling frizz. In addition to this, they also contain optical brighteners with light reflective technology borrowed from skincare to effortlessly enhance colour and texture at the same time.
Whether you decide to attend a glitzy party or ring in the new year at home, the start of 2022 is a great time to revamp your routine with a few New Year’s resolutions for your hair. The key to starting the new year in style? Pick habits that you won’t ditch by the time Valentine’s Day rolls around.
Our Favourite New Year’s Resolutions for Your Hair
START A SCALP ROUTINE
Over the past year, scalp health has been seen as one of the top ways to revamp self-care for your strands. During cleansing, we often forget to concentrate on the skin underneath our hair. Similar to exfoliating, toning and moisturizing your skin, you can apply these same benefits to your scalp with a targeted treatment. Pick from our SCALP range with a TREATMENT or SERUM or add a SCRUB + WASH while in the shower.
TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR COLOUR
Whether you’ve decided to lighten or colour your hair darker this season, practicing colour care at home can extend the life of your shade between salon visits and cut down on excess damage. Naturally, hair that has been coloured either by lifting with a lightener or colouring with a permanent dye is more sensitized and at risk of fading. Everything from UV rays, heat styling, or harsh water in the shower can prematurely fade your colour, which is why investing in a colour-specific WASH (shampoo) and RINSE (conditioner) is ideal.
For blonde or highlighted hair, BLONDE.ANGEL.WASH and BLONDE.ANGEL add a touch of lavender while cleansing and conditioning to cancel out unwanted warmth, leaving hues more neutral and adding a heaping dose of moisturization to leave hair looking and feeling its best.
If you’re not trying to combat warmth, ANGEL.WASH + ANGEL.RINSE or REPAIR-ME.WASH + RINSE are ideal options to treat sensitized hair and restore strength, moisture and volume.
BOOK UPKEEP APPOINTMENTS AHEAD OF TIME
Waiting until your ends are seriously split or your colour has completely faded to try and book a salon appointment can cause excessive stress to your strands. Instead of waiting, chat with your stylist and book appointments before you leave the salon. For colour clients, adding a quick and easy pH.D Treatment between colour sessions or booking for a trim between haircut transformations will keep your colour and style in shape.
LEARN A NEW STYLE
The new year is a great time to reinvent yourself and your style! If you’ve been wearing the same beachy waves or a smooth blowout for ages, try learning a few tricks to add some finesse to your style. Take a peek at our favourite hair tutorials available on Instagram. Simply follow @Kevin.murphy and @SalonSociety.yqr for the latest style ideas you can recreate at home!
PROTECT AGAINST HEAT
If you’re not using a heat protectant by now — start immediately! Surprisingly many of us skip the crucial step prior to styling. However, anytime you blow dry or heat style your hair you should apply HEATED.DEFENSE beforehand. This easy-to-apply foam is lightweight and will add condition while creating a protective shield against heat damage.
DEEP CONDITION ON A REGULAR BASIS
Show of hands — who actually deep conditions on a regular basis? Whether you need to pick up a new treatment or have been saving your deep conditioner for a special occasion, the time to use it is now…and more often. As time passes, hair only becomes more susceptible to damage, stress and signs of ageing. Applying deep conditioning treatments on a regular basis are ideal year-round and can address targeted needs based on your hair type. While we love YOUNG.AGAIN.MASQUE for ageing, weakened strands or HYDRATE-ME.MASQUE for dry, parched hair, check out all of our options for a treatment specific to your style & needs.
