When it comes to our faces, our bathroom cabinet is stocked: an lotions, face wash, serum, night cream. But our hair doesn’t get the same love. Beyond shampoo, conditioner and an occasional mask treatment, we don’t have a dedicated daily regimen to maintain its luster and health.
That’s about to change, thanks to these five forward-thinking products that are like skin care for our hair.
#1 Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Photo-Age Defense
Since we’ve gotten older, our anti-aging regimen has become more sophisticated. But something we didn’t think of: youthifying our hair! Alterna’s new serum helps to keep hair looking healthy with all of the ingredients we use in our night cream: fatty acids, vitamin C and proteins—all of which allow us to get away with celebrating our 29th birthday...again.
Exfoliating gives our complexion a healthy glow by getting rid of dry, dead skin. But on our head, Redken’s polish deep cleans with pumice to help refine unruly hair texture for smoother, sleeker locks.
We like using oil to wash our faces because it lifts away hard-to-remove makeup and grime that don’t always dissolve with our regular cleanser. Shu Uemura’s oil shampoo does the same thing for our hair by rinsing away product buildup and oil.
#4 Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Bronze Shimmer Dust
A bronzer for your hair? Of course! Spritz this sparkly mist through your hair—and on your body—for strands that reflect light without resorting to an oil-based shine spray (which can be too heavy for fine locks).
Just like your creamy face wash, this combo shampoo and conditioner has a rich, milky base that gives your hair moisture without lots of suds. Less lather means you won’t strip hair of its hydrating oils—a good thing when you have a thick, dry mane.
