Layered Loves… at-home hair heroes

There were some incredible launches in March, but in light of the lockdown we’ve found ourselves re-assessing some classics too…

These new and old hair heroes have found their way into daily and weekly use for their innovative formulas that effortlessly solve the various issues while we’re unable to see our hairdressers for a while.


Keep hair happily hydrated to preserve colour and condition. JOICO have a new duo of shampoos and conditioners to cover both fine and thirsty, course hair types.

JOICO HydraSplash is ideal for fine-to-medium hair types to thoroughly replenish moisture, shine, and softness without weighing hair down thanks to coconut water and sea kelp extracts.

For coarser hair types, reach for JOICO Moisture Recovery. This fan favourite range has recently had its formulas supercharged with nourishing jojoba oil. This “moist-have” collection delivers deep replenishment for thick or coarse hair to look and feel beautifully quenched all day.


Insure your longer locks against breakage and damage until you can see your hairdresser and turn to L’Oréal Professionnel’s latest launch. The Serie Expert Pro Longer collection is designed to help your ends remain whole and healthy.

The formulas contain an exclusive combination of FILLER-A100 and amino acids to renew lengths and fill-in ends for longer, thicker, better hair. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 with the Pro Longer Shampoo, Masque and Renewing Cream to reduce the appearance of split ends and breakage by up to 66 per cent.


Refresh your colour without turning to box dyes and racking up a hefty bill with your hairdresser. The new CHROMA ID collection from Schwarzkopf Professional includes six at-home bonding colour masks to choose from.

The masks contain built-in Bonding Technology to help enforce the structural bonds within the hair shaft for stronger hair with less breakage, while keratin and panthenol provide extra care and help seal the outer cuticle for improved hair quality.


Keep your hair shafts sealed and secure to avoid losing your colour and maintaining the condition of your hair until you can reunite with your hairdresser.

A serum like the new Fudge Professional Aqua Shine Serum will help to seal the cuticle and lock in extra care to your lengths, so you can tie it into as many messy topknots as you wish as you work from home.

It’s infused with hyaluronic acid and SHINE-LOCK technology to envelope each strand, smoothing down cuticles for your best ever smoothness and long-lasting shine. Bonus points – the packaging is 100 per cent recyclable.


Things are stressful right now – if you need to lock yourself in the bathroom, light a candle and put on a hair mask then we’re right there with you. The Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector treatment is game-changing – if you’ve ever had an Olaplex treatment in salon, you’ll know what we mean. This fast-acting treatment will transform your hair texture in just 10mins, mending broken bonds and smoothing hair effortlessly.

Air Dry

Put down your straighteners, your tongs – heck, even your hairdryer. Ever wanted to give your hair a bit of time to recover? Your prayers are answered – even if you didn’t exactly mean like this… There’s never been a better time to switch to air dry creams.

The much-raved-about Redken No Blow Dry creams have become a staple in our WFH routines. These creams come in three variants depending on hair type – simply work through hair and leave to dry. Your locks will thank you for it.
