#1 ALTERNA DAILY DENSIFYING FOAM
$51, available at all Sephora stores
A styling-cum-treatment product, Alterna’s Daily Densifying Foam is a lightweight mousse said to make hair look instantly fuller and denser, while strengthening the hair at the same time. It reduces hair breakage and dries to a non-sticky, natural finish.
All you need to do is to shake the bottle, then dispense an egg-sized amount into your palm and distribute throughout damp hair from your scalp to the ends.
#2 AVEDA INVATI SCALP REVITALISER
$106, available at all Aveda experience centres
The Aveda Invati Scalp Revitaliser is a spray-on essence that helps to improve blood circulation in the scalp, stimulating hair follicles – where hair strands grow out from - for better growth. It gives a refreshing feeling to the scalp – the spicy-smelling solution feels warm and tingles a little as you massage it in.
#3 KERASTASE DENSIFIQUE
$142.80 for 10 ampoules or $342.40 for 30 ampoules, available at all Kerastase consultant salons
Kerastase Densifique is an at-home programme from Kerastase which uses a stem cell science formula with a combination of vitamins – B3, B5 and B6 – to promote hair growth, regulate sebum and strengthen the hair fibre.
Apply one vial of the leave-on treatment once a day, from the scalp to the ends and massage. The treatment is meant to be used for three months.
