Philip B's Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray (HK$260/125ml) hydrates the hair with such botanical ingredients as mongogo oil and artichoke leaf extract, while the L-amino acid complex protects and nourishes against aggressors such as the sun, heat-styling and chlorinated pool and sea waters. Sweet Blue Lupine Peptides offer colour protection. The spray also doubles as a hair fragrance, thanks to the lasting scent of oud from safflower oleosomes. Available at 10/10 Space and Joyce Beauty.
Procter & Gamble hair care brand Aussie has brought to Hong Kong its range of French-made products, including the 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor (HK$99/250ml). Formulated with Australian balm mint extract, the deep conditioner helps repair split ends and roughened cuticles. Apply on wet hair for up to three minutes before a rinse to achieve shiny, manageable hair. Available at Mannings and Watsons.
Bumble and bumble's Heat/ UV Protective Primer (HK$230/250ml) is a new product from the brand's latest Hairdresser's Invisible Oil range. Available at Joyce Beauty, the lightweight spray is infused with six oils from coconut, argan, macadamia nut, sweet almond, safflower seed and grapeseed. Apply on damp or dry hair before styling in order to detangle and protect hair from damage of heat-styling and ultraviolet rays.
L'Oréal Professionnel's Pro-Keratin Refill Masque (HK$218/200ml) is designed for damage control. Knowing that loss of keratin is one of the reasons for dull, brittle hair, the brand's latest collection is all about restoring these natural proteins. The Pro-Keratin Complex, a blend of three essential amino acids and wheat protein, works to repair weak hair. Let the cream sit on towel-dried hair for three to five minutes before washing thoroughly.
