What Layered loved in… August

Each month, we’re inundated with the latest hair products, so let us share our findings with you on the regular. Here, we trawl through the haul from August to bring you the ones worth trying and buying.

Balmain Comb Collection

True style is in the accessories, which is why we’re loving the new Balmain Paris Hair Couture Professional Comb Collection as it captures the luxurious feel of the iconic Balmain fashion house, but without the price tag. The hand-carved combs have anti-static properties, while the polished teeth are smooth and free from sharp edges and imperfections, helping to prevent damage and split ends. We particularly love the Texture Comb for untangling tight curls and transforming them into waves. 
RRP from £18.95

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ BOHO REBEL

Love your dry shampoo possibly more than your family and friends? We get it, which is why we were particularly excited to discover these new pigmented dry shampoos from Schwarzkopf Professional. Designed to seamlessly blend into a variety of hair colours, including blondes, brunettes and dark hair, the pigmented dry shampoos refresh roots, while providing lift and extra grip with none of that white residue. There are three dry shampoos to choose from for perfect #IWOKEUPLIKETHIS hair.
RRP £13.15

Fudge Professional Violet Xpander Foam

This fun-filled foam from Fudge Professional is our new BFF. Great for blondes, the foam is blended with the same pigmented tech used in its bestselling Clean Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo, so you know it will keep your light locks looking great. And it does exactly what it says it will – it expands your hair! Ultra-bright, mega-volumised blonde mane, but without the stickiness that you get from (some) mousses – we like. The more you use, the bigger the volume. Go big or go home!

Love simplicity in a bottle? Then let us introduce you to Hairstory, created by Eli Halliwell, whose background is Bumble and bumble, so you know he knows his stuff.  Hairstory famously launched with just two products (cleansers), but has finally added to this line-up with Undressed, a surf spray with no salt so none of the dryness; Wax, a hat-proof, water-resistant shape-shifter; Lift, a versatile styling mist; and Powder, a translucent powder for Bardot-worthy body.
RRP from £37.50

Philip Kingsley Pomegranate & Cassis Elasticizer

Love Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer (we’re yet to find someone who doesn’t)? Love your products smelling fantastic? Combine both and you get the Philip Kingsley Pomegranate & Cassis Elasticizer. Imagine summer bottled and corked – this is the result. Sweet notes of intensely rich pomegranate and captivating sweet cassis greet you as you pop open this pre-shampoo treatment that was originally created for Audrey Hepburn. You’ll be singing ‘Moon river…’ in the shower before you know it.
RRP from £21 

Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock

Hair in need of a little pick-me-up, post-holiday? This is the do-all wonder that’ll have you bouncing out of your holiday blues faster than you can say ‘cocktails at sundown’. Formulated with peptides, this treatment left our hair feeling noticeably stronger, which makes sense as it claims to make hair nine-times more resistant to breakage – even when wet. On a more surface-level front, it leaves hair super shiny and smooth.
RRP £17.45
