Hip hip hooray, Henkel celebrates 70 years in SA! Here are our best buys…

Henkel South Africa has grown to be a powerhouse in the South African adhesives and beauty care markets over the past seven decades … we know – and use – their brands every day, think Pritt, Pattex and Schwarzkopf.

So, as this company marks its 70th anniversary in SA this year, we thought we’d showcase some of our favourite products…

Who doesn’t know the Pritt stick … it’s still a top product 30 years on from when it first launched in SA! (R45 from Takealot.com.) Some of our other faves include the modelling dough (R74.50 from Bidvest Waltons) – it comes in five fab colours and our kids can’t get enough of playing with it! When we’re in the mood to get creative, we bring out the watercolour paints … a perfect way to take our minds off stressful days and the new Covid-19 variant (R48 from Takealot.com)! The multi tack with convenient pieces is a decorating game-changer … so handy when sticking up decorations or posters on the walls (R15.99 from Clicks).

We love Schwarzkopf products … and the Super Soft Strength & Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner has just landed on our desk – we can’t wait to give it a try. We love the hot pink packaging and that these products use vegan formulas with no silicones. (You’ll find shampoo for R48 and the conditioner for R38 from Takalot.com). On windy days, try the got2b Glued products … there’s a blasting freeze spray to really hold your locks in place and there’s a water-resistant spiking glue too – both for ‘screaming hold’. A top choice for beach hols. (Both are R62.95 at Dischem.) For those who can’t resist colouring their hair, we turn to Palette Deluxe Oil Care Secrets … the colour really lasts! (R105 from Clicks.)

We love a brand with purpose … and this is just want the Act Now range from Indola is all about. You’ll find 12 vegan products which are free from sulphate surfactants, silicones, parabens, mineral oils and artificial colourants. Among the products are colour, repair and moisture shampoos; there’s a fab repair mask for your hair to restore smoothness and vitality, a lovely moisture spray that’ll leave your hair smooth and shiny and there’s a texture spray to boost the volume of your locks.

Who wants nails sticking out their walls where frames used to hang … not us! This is why we’re huge fans of Pattex’s range. We love the No More Nails HighTack (R135 at Builders), No More Nails Invisible (R175 at Builders Warehouse) and the No More Nails Click and Fix (R98 at Builders).

Doing some household chores over December? Ponal wood glue really works (R65 at Builders) and Sista has some great products too, like Pu Foam (R195 from Builders) and 100% silicone (R98 from Builders).
