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.
#2 Redken Nature's Rescue Refining Sea Polish
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.
#3 Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo Gentle Radiance Cleanser
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).
#5 L’Oreal Paris EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner
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.
