It’s time we show more love to our precious manes.  

When it comes to the beauty department, some of us are guilty of jumping at the latest skincare and makeup products. We can’t help but pick up that new hydrating serum and cute mask or add new foundations and eyeshadow palettes to our collections (and there’s nothing wrong with either); but do we do the same when it comes to haircare? If not, maybe it’s time we show more love to our precious manes.

Here are six hair products that are worth trying out depending on your hair type and need.

Dry shampoo is our best bet for oily-hair girls, especially in humid Malaysian weather. Try alternating between washing your hair and using dry shampoo to prevent slick, greasy hair by mid-day (did you know oily hair may be caused by washing your hair too frequently?). Sachajuan’s Dry Hair Shampoo should do the trick. W sephora.my

If the humidity contributes to greasy hair, the heat certainly doesn’t help with frizz. That’s why dry hair needs more attention, and our daily solution to this is the Botanist Botanical Hair Milk, which conditions hair while protecting it from heat and frizz. Oh, and it smells amazing too. W sephora.my

Just like combination skin, combination hair exists too – usually a case of oily scalp and dry or split ends. Kerastase’s Specifique Bain Divalent is targeted at purifying the roots and controlling sebum while nourishing sensitised lengths for more balanced and healthier hair overall. W kerastase.com.my

Try applying a few spritzes of a volumizing hair spray before or during blow drying, then tease the crown area to add some volume to your mane. The OUAI Volume spray does wonders for ours. Available in Sephora stores.

For chemically-treated and damaged hair

Trust a brand known for chemical treatments to offer the solution to its effects – the Shiseido Luminoforce Shampoo is specially designed to repair hair that has gone through repeated colouring as well as enhance moisture retention and shine. W pro.shiseido.com

Here’s a protip: while doing your weekly face mask routine, use a hair mask too. The Percy & Reed Totally TLC Hydrating Mask is great for deep-nourishing, hydrating and soothing parched, distressed hair – leaving it soft, healthy and manageable. W sephora.my
