MIMI LOVES: HYDRATING HAIR PRODUCTS
The UK weather often leaves a lot to be desired, and so, understandably, the first hint of a heatwave can catapult us into an excited frenzy. However, heat can potentially wreak havoc on our hair, leaving it looking dry and brittle.
Here are my holy grail hydration products to keep your hair looking gorgeous this summer.
Leave-in Conditioning Cream & Intense Hair & Scalp Moisturiser, £47.99, St Claire’s
Rich in both castor and olive oil, this unctuous cream by St Claire’s provides long-lasting moisture. A little goes a long way – massage a small amount into damp hair, focusing on the ends if dryness is a particular concern for you. It leaves hair soft, hydrated, and more than ready for styling.
Natural Moisturising Cream, £16, Afrocenchix
Afrocenchix’s moisturising hair cream is essential for a head full of healthy kinks and curls. The creamy formula, made from shea butter from Ghana, coconut oil and aloe vera, can be used as a leave-in conditioner, best applied to damp hair. Smooth the product down the hair strands, using your fingers to detangle as you go.
Double Butter Styling Cream, £12.99, As I Am
Packed with natural oils and organic butters, this styling cream by As I Am delivers a much-needed moisture boost. Containing panthenol, derived from vitamin B5, it also promises to help with manageability and vitality. Rub the product between your palms and scrunch it into the ends of your hair to keep your curls intact.
There is power in product knowledge – I hope you love these three as much as I do.
