While K-beauty has made a name for itself in the skincare and cosmetics scene, it is quickly becoming a frontrunner in the hair care scene too. Whether you’ve gotten the 10 step Korean skincare routine down to a tee or just started to dip your toes into the K-beauty scene, here are some interesting Korean hair products that will nourish and heal your tresses.
Etude House Hot Style Photo Liner ($12.90)
This innovative hair product by Etude House is designed to create the illusion of an even hair line. This hair liner can also be used to conceal more exposed areas of the scalp and disguise overgrown roots so you can buy time between salon visits.
Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume ($98)
If you are looking for an instant replenishment for your hair, try this lychee, peach and rose scented hair perfume from Korean hair care brand Sachajuan. Formulated with a medley of keratin and silk oils, this weightless mist helps to restore any damage while leaving a pleasant scent on your locks. This is the perfect thing to have in your bag when you are headed to barbeques to eliminate the unpleasant smoke smell.
Kocostar Home Salon Hair Pack ($10)
For tresses that have been damaged by perms and colouring, the Kocostar Home Salon Hair Pack is just what the doctor ordered. Just like hydrating masks for your face, your hair can benefit from sheet masks too. This bonnet that is packed with nourishing and conditioning ingredients uses the heat from your scalp to absorb into the hair’s cuticles. After shampooing, towel dry your hair slightly before placing the cap around your hair. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.
Mamonde Pang Pang Hair Shadow ($22)
Thick and lustrous locks are a hallmark of youth and exuberance. However, as you age, your hair decreases in density and your hair strands become thinner. While it is hard to reverse the signs of aging, you can fake fuller hair with products like this one from Mamonde. Simply dust this waterproof powder on sparse spots on the scalp for voluminous looking hair. For more ways to prevent hair fall, read this.
Innisfree My Hair Refreshing Scaling Oil ($19)
Made with primarily natural ingredients derived from jeju pine, cedar and cypress trees, this Hair Refreshing Scaling Oil purifies the scalp of build-up of dirt and excess sebum while nourishing and moisturising the hair. Use this product once or twice a week to resurrect and repair your damaged strands.
