Hair hacks worth highlighting

Beauty-wise, if there’s one thing lockdown taught us, it’s the importance of how to manage our locks. We’re embracing the undone bob, the grown-out fringe, and the importance of exceptional at-home tools, quality products and glam-it-up hair accessories.

 

I don’t want more volume. Said no one ever!

Which makes the new, volumising ghd Rise Hot Brush the most essential item in your beauty cache. This hot (185°C … the optimum hairstyling temp) little number gives two times more volume, and has the technology to adapt the power based on the speed of your styling, and has smooth-touch nylon bristles that are optimised to ensure close contact so you can lift hair from the roots, glide smoothly through the length with no tangles. Shape. Body. Fullness. And a high-volume crown worthy of a queen! R2900 from salons and ghd.com

Scrunchie with bow in a pretty Summer fabric, R59 from peoniepienk.co.za

This Inoar Kálice Oil is loaded with vitamin E and seven precious vegetable oils. It’s moisturising, nourishing, restorative, antioxidant, softening, protective, and penetrates and absorbs immediately into the hair. Bonus … it’s multifunctional, so you can use it on your face and body too. R950 (or R130 for the small 8ml version – great for travelling).

Résistance Lotus Flower Oil – also with plant ingredients that penetrate deep into the hair fibre and give back its natural moisture – strengthens, repairs, realigns, reduces frizz, and, since your hair will be healthier, adds shine. R130 for 7ml. Inoar products are cruelty-free, vegan and sulphate-free. Details: inoar.co.za

Watch your back. This rectangular mirror is perfectly sized to keep on your dressing table. Not only is it great for when you’re doing your make-up, but also to check the back of your hair – to admire or fix. R299 from home.co.za

 

Pretty Kate In Marble hair barrette, R42, one of loads of really lovely options from peoniepienk.co.za

This resin triangle hair claw, with a faux-marble effect, makes it easy to sweep your hair into a stylish updo. Smooth and glam, or messy and sexy … depending on your mood. R99.95 from Woolworths.

Up your everyday hairstyle with eye-catching accessories. Even a simple ponytail looks the bomb when you add a scrunchie or a pair of clips. Start with a dusty pink corduroy scrunchie (we’re so happy these are back in fashion … so kind to your hair), R48 from peoniepienk.co.za • Two-pack diamanté resin hair slides – one with chunky resin gems in shades of palest pink and nudes, the other with encrusted diamanté, R89.95 for both from Woolworths.
