In the October issue of IMAGE, on shelves today, MELANIE MORRIS shares the most effective products and solutions for home hairstyling at salon-quality standards. Here, she shares your essential at-home kit.
1 Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring, €5.99
Secure updos like a pro with these sturdy elastics. They minimise breakage too.
2 Redken Blondage Shampoo, €18.50, and Conditioner, €21
Keep creamy/ash/platinum blondes fresh with purple products. For a more regular/gentle hit, mix half quantities of purple shampoo with your usual brand, or use for just one shampoo out of two.
3 IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo, €23.24
Invisible, weightless and non-gritty, yet offers all the volume, grip and texture you could hope for. Our favourite this year.
4 Kevin Murphy Color.Bug, €18
Colour without commitment; simply rub onto hair and brush to integrate. Great for coloured (or multi-coloured) tips or a balayage effect.
5 Kérastase L’Incroyable Blowdry, €26
A super-light styling cream with a memory… apply, style and restyle at speed; this product will return hair to its original blow-dry shape up to four times. Magic.
6 ghd Heat Protect Spray, €15.50
Does exactly as promised, and the perfect partner to any heated styling tools.
7 Acca Kappa Oval Medium Extension Brush, €30
By royal appointment, and not surprisingly so, this brush gets roots, extensions and ends smoothed out in seconds, and eliminates matting with ease.
