Skincare as haircare isn’t ground-breaking news. We’ve had BB creams for our hair, hair exfoliators…however, there’s a new product type hitting the shelves which has piqued a renewed interest for us in this category. Micellar shampoos. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of micellar water, let us enlighten you.
Previously the skincare secret of French women – and they know a thing or two about looking fabulous – micellar waters are what they use to remove makeup and get skin really clean. Through the power of the internet and social media, micellar waters gained cult status in the beauty world. They subsequently came to our UK shores and we’ve all gone crazy for them.
They take their name from micelles, minuscule round balls of oil that you can just about see floating about in the bottle. On contact with the skin the oil is dispersed, picks up the dirt on your skin far superiorly to anything else but doesn’t strip skin of any moisture along the way. In short, it’s quick, super powerful and majorly effective. Which is why it’s now being infiltrated into shampoos, because who doesn’t want super clean hair that doesn’t feel dry in a jiffy?
