John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush (price unavailable)
Achieve salon-standard blowouts at home with this nifty brush/dryer combo. Featuring a hot and cool heat setting, a titanium-coated ceramic barrel for fullness and soft bristles for added shine, we love this brush for achieving that fresh out of the salon look. This is especially perfect for bobs and soft, bouncy curls.
Asian hair tends to be fine, and can look flat even with the best styling efforts, especially in our humid climate. Achieve all-day long voluminous hair with this root lifting spray that boasts an impressive 60-hour hold and high humidity resistance. Simply spritz onto your root area before or during styling and dry your hair away from your scalp – this baby even doubles as a heat protection spray.
Take hair care into the 21st century with the world’s first touch screen dryer. Featuring a compact 2.4-inch touch screen control, you can customise the speed, temperature and even the ionic output of your hair dryer with just a few taps. This second generation dryer boasts a lighter and more compact design than its predecessor, and emits 3 times more ions to help battle frizz. We also love that this dryer can be used hands free – the flat black allows you to leave it standing while you sip your morning coffee.
Perfect for lunch-time gym bunnies (or those who prefer to sleep in), this blow dry accelerator helps to shave up to 10 minutes of hair drying time (depending on your hair type), while helping to fight frizz and improve humidity resistance with its unique paraben-free salon-approved formula, making it absolutely perfect for our tropical climate. It even provides thermal protection, so you can keep your locks gorgeous, healthy and perfectly styled.
This is one of the most raved about curlers online because you can achieve gorgeous and natural looking waves in a matter of minutes. Instead of fussing around with a traditional curler, simply clamp 2-inch sections of your hair between the plates and hold in place for runway-worthy curls. It’s also equipped with tourmaline ceramic technology for even heat distribution and protection against frizz.
Kind of like dryer sheets, but for your hair. Achieve instantly smooth and frizz-free hair with these handy sheets that helps to tame flyaways and even controls static. We love that the sheets are enriched with coconut oil and UV protection – perfect for those beach vacations!
Seriously cut drying time with this nifty pair of microfiber gloves that promise to absorb only water from your hair, and not any of your styling or leave-in products. Made from a patented pile-dry micro-weave fiber that is designed to absorb more water than a regular towel, these gloves also help keep your hair soft and leaves it with a subtle shine.
Resørsea Revitalizing Scalp Treatment, US$150 for 200ml
Did you know that we are born with 100,000 hair follicles, but that this number drastically reduces to just 70,000 by the time we are 70 due to clogged follicles? This eventually causes hair to thin out and die, which means a less gorgeous head of hair. This scalp treatment gently removes dead skin cells that have accumulated around the hair follicle, enabling them to breathe for a healthier scalp. Online reviewers claim it has actually helped them to grow more hair, but do note that results can vary between individuals.
Corioliss K2 Vapour Infusion Iron (price unavailable)
Gone are the days of flat iron fried hair! A step above other straighteners, this one uses a steam technology infused with a special heat-activated Argan Shine Serum to ensure your hair isn’t just hair-commercial straight, but also perfectly silky and moisturized. It offers multi-steam settings so you can choose exactly how much shine you need, and is equipped with special black diamond vented ceramic plates to help repair hair cuticles and seal in moisture.
