Every single move that the Royal Family makes, the world watches on. From charity work, glamorous soirees to receiving dignitaries, there isn’t a second where the spotlight isn’t on them. Which explains why literally everything that Kate Middleton has worn since becoming Duchess of Cambridge promptly sells out—and the same goes for Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.
And can we take a moment to admire how Meghan Markle is always perfectly coiffed? Sure, she’s probably got a glam squad at her beck and call but it’s not impossible to make everyday your good hair day if you’re equipped with the right products. Here, our top 5 healthy hair essentials so you will never have a hair out of place:
Repairing Mask: Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Mask, $53 for 226ml
The key to looking like you’ve just gotten a luxurious blowout? Silky smooth hair. So if your hair needs a little resuscitation, try this aptly named hair mask. Perfect for giving damaged, brittle and over-processed locks some TLC, it delivers powerful nutrients to help rebuild, strengthen and smooth hair. Thanks to its NOVA Complex, distressed locks are treated to a cocktail of argan oil, rosehip, collagen extract, B-vitamins and algae extract which replenishes frazzled ends with moisture, improve hair elasticity and reinforces hair structure to reduce breakage by up to 75% after just three uses.
Treatment Oil: Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil, $56 for 100ml
The name of the product quite simply, says it all. Formulated with an optimal blend of nourishing oils that is compatible with the hair’s natural oil composition, this oil penetrates hair shaft quickly to nourish even the thickest, more unmanageable of hair types, without leaving behind any trace of stickiness or greasiness. And as with all Living Proof products, it is powered by the brand’s patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), which blocks out humidity for frizz-free hair that holds style for hours on end.
Hair Primer: Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm, $40 for 75ml
Just like how a face primer smooths skin surface and keeps makeup looking fresh and radiant all day long, this hair balm functions like a hair primer to smooth hair and help hair styles last longer despite of humid conditions. Suitable for use on damp or dry hair, this leave-in balm hydrates parched ends, seals off cuticles to repel humidity and imparts hair with a healthy, lustrous shine.
Smoothing Cream: Original & Mineral Project Sukuroi Golden Smoothing Balm, $47 for 100g
If its an ultra-sleek finish that you desire, this is your best bet. Made with macadamia oil and Camelina plant extract, this thick, rich balm nourishes dry and rough hair instantly, locking in moisture and adding shine without weighing it down. Plus, it is also fortified with keratin which strengthens damaged locks for a silky-smooth finish. Apply a grape-sized onto damp hair before blow-drying to tame out-of-control hair, or flat iron onto dry hair for a dramatic effect.
Volume Booster: Sisley Hair Rituel Volumizing Spray, $118 for 150ml
Needless to say, perfect hair always has volume and bounce. To give limp and lifeless locks an instant pick-me-up, spritz this onto the lengths of damp hair liberally before styling. This weightless formula contains Boswellia gum, volumizing resin and rice bran proteins to lightly coat hair for a densifying effect while giving your locks a root-lift. Pro-vitamin B5 also smooths hair cuticles and adds shine.
