5 Essential Oils You Can Use In Winters For Healthy Hair

The whipping cold dry winds in the winter season wreak plenty of havoc on our skin and hair as it depletes the natural moisture of the skin and the room heaters worsen the problem. Apart from the skin of our body, our scalp too turns inordinately dry and flaky in the winter months, thus dandruff is quite a common problem.

So, to avoid this, there is an endless list of nutrient rich, nourishing, essential oils that not only add an enormous amount of sheen, but also infuse health to our cherished tresses. Here is a list of the right oils for you depending upon your respective hair woes.

#1. Almond oil: solution for hair fall and breakage

Barely would you find a woman who has not experienced hair-fall or breakage at least once in her life. Almond oil can play a major role in your hair growth as it prevents hair fall and breakage. It contains all kind of healthy ingredients for hair such as omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, phospholipids and magnesium. You can add silkiness and shine to your hair & nourish the scalp with almond oil.

#2. Olive oil: solution for split ends and frizzy hair

Olive oil is truly a powerhouse when it comes to hair, skin and beauty applications. It has great moisturising properties and hence is considered great for taming frizz and split ends. Mix 4 tbsp olive oil with 1 beaten egg yolk and honey. Now apply it directly to entire scalp & hair; let it sit for 30 minutes and after that, do the normal shampooing and conditioning. Make sure to never heat olive oil as heating can make it lose its moisturising properties.

#3. Sesame oil: solution for premature greying

With highly nourishing, lubricating and a healing nature, sesame oil improves the colour of your hair and treats and prevents premature greying due to its darkening qualities. It has some essential fatty acids like omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 that nourish your hair and encourage thick and shiny hair growth. Sesame (also known as gingelly oil) is a multi-nutrient oil as it contains Vitamin E, B complex, and minerals like magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and protein, which is a privilege to strengthen the hair roots. It is antibacterial and applying it on the scalp helps keep both fungal and bacterial infections at bay.

#4. Lavender oil: solution for dry and flaky scalp

It is definitely one of the most popular essential oils that have antidepressant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. This oil can do wonders to the scalp that is dry and flaky as it has moisturising effects to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. One can also combine it with other oils such as jojoba oil, for an extra boost of hydration. It can also alleviate insomnia.

#5. Aromatic oils: for healthy and shiny hair

Aromatic oils are primarily a blend of oil with aromatic compounds, and have a pleasing aroma to soothe the senses. Many hair problems occur due to mental or physical stress and these aromatic oils with their mood-boosting aroma – leave a great impact on the mindset of a person and eventually keep all such problems at bay. Oils like rosemary, eucalyptus, mango-seed, are some of the best aromatic oils that can be used to treat different disorders.

Now that you know of all the best aromatic oils for your hair, make sure you make the best use of these and give your hair some pampering this season.

5 Things You Are Doing To Damage Your Hair

Frequent Washing

Yes, washing your hair is damaging. Even just getting hair wet can lead to more breakage! When hair becomes wet, the shaft swells, resulting in hair that is more elastic and easier to break. In addition, shampoos can sometimes work too well, removing the oils your hair naturally produces resulting in hair that looks dull and dry.

Solution: Wash you hair less. Dry shampoos are a good option for spot treating on those in-between days. If you must wash daily, use a mild shampoo (avoid products labeled as deep cleansing or clarifying) and focus on the roots where hair is more oily and generally has more product buildup.

Brushing Wet Hair

As previously mentioned, wet hair is more susceptible to damage than dry hair. Wet hair is more elastic and more likely to break. Even brushing dry hair excessively is damaging since brushes and combs can snap or break hair.

Solution: Be gentle with wet hair. Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to remove tangles.

Towel Drying

Yep, towels can damage your hair. Have I mentioned that wet hair is more susceptible to damage? Even rubbing hair with a towel can rough up the cuticle (outer layer of the hair), causing it to look frizzy or fluffy and potentially lead to more breakage.

Solution: Blot your hair with a towel instead of rubbing it to remove moisture. Also, investing in a super-absorbent towel may be a good idea, especially if you have really thick hair.

Blow Drying

No surprise here, heat causes damage. Blow drying causes a “flash drying” effect that not only removes the surface moisture but also removes water that is bound to the hair, which is called water of hydration. The effect of this flash drying is that the cuticles become dry, rigid and brittle. When the hair flexes, the pressure causes the cuticles to crack. Combing hair with this degree of cuticle cracking causes significant breakage.

Solution: Ideally, don’t blow dry your hair. Of course, this isn’t a realistic option for many women (including me!). To help mitigate some of the damage try using a heat-protector spray or leave-in conditioner containing glycerin and propylene glycol because these ingredients reduce water evaporation. Additionally, use the low heat option on your dryer to further minimize damage.

Flat Irons/Curling Irons

These type of appliances can damage your hair in a different way than blow dryers. Ironing hair can cause two different types of damage, depending on whether the hair is ironed dry or wet. Ironing dry hair causes cracking along the edges of the cuticles, which can lead to chipping. Ironing wet hair causes the moisture to burst out in little steam explosions. This causes a bubbling and buckling of the cuticle that appear as tiny hair blisters under magnification. Both types of damage can lead to breakage and split ends.

Solution: Iron damage can be reduced by using conditioners formulated with ingredients like cetrimonium chloride. Exposing hair to heat in the presence of such a conditioning agent can increase the strength of the hair, making it harder to break. Products labeled specifically to protect against heat are a good option. Of course, not using an iron is the best solution.

Bottom Line

While it is nearly impossible to prevent all types of hair damage, there are a few simple solutions that can keep your hair looking and feeling healthier without sacrificing your beloved blow dryer!

Dandruff: What Your Itchy Scalp Is Trying to Tell You

When it comes to dandruff, most people focus on the flakes.
Itching, on the other hand, may be the most uncomfortable side effect. So what exactly is your scratchy scalp trying to tell you? Read up on the most common symptoms of dandruff and ways to get your scalp healthy again.

Symptoms and causes

Flakes and an itchy, scaly scalp are the main symptoms of dandruff. White, oily flakes typically accumulate in your hair and on your shoulders and often get worse during the fall and winter months, when the air is dry.

Pinpointing the exact cause of your itchy, flaky scalp can be difficult, but here are a few common culprits:

  • irritated and oily skin, a condition also known as seborrheic dermatitis (a more severe form of dandruff)
  • not shampooing enough, which causes skin cells to accumulate and create flakes and itching
  • yeast called malassezia, which aggravate your scalp and cause excess skin cell growth
  • different personal care products may cause contact dermatitis, which makes your scalp red and itchy


Men develop dandruff more frequently than women. People who tend to have oilier hair or live with certain illnesses (such as Parkinson’s disease or HIV) are also at higher risk. You may have started to notice symptoms around puberty, but dandruff can develop at any age.

What exactly is your itchy scalp trying to tell you?

1. Not all shampoos are the same

If your scalp is itchy, you may be able to get some relief by using over-the-counter (OTC) shampoos that are formulated to help with dandruff. Getting the right fit may take some trial and error, so if you haven’t had luck in the past, try again. Sometimes alternating two or more shampoo types can also help.

Some products you may see on the shelves include:

  • Head & Shoulders and Jason Dandruff Relief contain zinc pyrithione, which is antibacterial and antifungal. Dandruff is not caused by fungus, but it still helps by slowing the production of excess skin cells.
  • Neutrogena T/Gel is a tar-based shampoo. Coal can ease conditions from dandruff to psoriasis by slowing how quickly your scalp’s skin cells die and flake off. This type of shampoo can discolor hair, so be careful if you’re blonde or gray.
  • Neutrogena T/Sal has a dose of salicylic acid and may lessen the amount of scale you have. They can leave your scalp dry, however. If you find that your scalp is particularly dry, make sure you follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.
  • Selsun Blue has the power of selenium sulfide. It can slow your skin cells from dying and also reduce malassezia. This type of shampoo may also discolor lighter shades of hair.
  • Nizoral is a ketoconazole shampoo, meaning it contains a broad-spectrum antifungal. You can find this type of wash OTC or by prescription.

If you don’t know which to choose, ask your doctor for a suggestion. To get dandruff under control, you may need to use special shampoo when you do shampoo (optimal frequency varies based on hair type). Once things are under control, you may only need to use the shampoo occasionally to maintain good effect.

2. Moisturize

A dry scalp tends to flake and itch, but usually the flakes you’ll experience with dry skin are smaller and less oily. Restoring moisture to the scalp can help with itchiness, and the best moisturizer might already be sitting on your kitchen shelf. Coconut oil has moisturizing and antibacterial properties, making it a great, natural choice for fighting dryness.

3. Practice good hygiene and stop scratching!

Shampooing often enough can keep oils at bay, helping with dandruff symptoms. While you are at it, try to resist the urge to scratch your scalp. The itchiness is initially caused by irritation from dandruff, but scratching will increase irritation and lead to a vicious cycle.

Using too many products in your hair can irritate the scalp and lead to more itchiness. Try eliminating anything extra from your personal care routine and adding back in slowly to discover which gels, sprays, and other products don’t make your symptoms worse.

4. You need to relax

Stress can aggravate or even worsen dandruff for some individuals. While malassezia is not introduced to your scalp by stress, it can thrive if your immune system is compromised, which is exactly what stress does to your body.

Do your scalp a favor and relax. Try taking a restorative walk or practicing yoga. You may even find it helpful to keep a log of stressful events. Write down what they are and how they impact your dandruff. That way, you can do your best to avoid potential triggers in the future.

When to see your doctor

The good news is that many cases of dandruff can be treated effectively with over-the-counter shampoos and other lifestyle measures. That being said, dandruff isn’t the only reason you may have an itchy scalp. If your dandruff is particularly stubborn or itchy, you may have psoriasis, eczema, or a true fungal infection. Your doctor can help.

If your itch isn’t letting up or your scalp becomes red or swollen, make an appointment with your doctor. Check in as well if shampoos don’t help, redness and flaking spreads to your face or other areas on the body, you see lice or nits in your hair, or the itching starts to interfere with your everyday life.


While dandruff can be annoying and embarrassing at times, it usually doesn’t indicate a more serious health issue. The itching and flaking often respond well to OTC shampoos and treatments. Keep trying different brands and types until you find something that works for you.

8 Effective Home Remedies For Dry And Damaged Hair

Does your hair feel dry, brittle, and dull? Do you suffer from frizzy hair and split ends? Frequent use of hairdryers or hair treatments, like bleaching, coloring, or straightening, can dry out and damage your hair. Dry hair is more prone to breakage and split ends.

To end the damage, the first step is to change some of your daily hair habits. Practice healthy hair habits and treat your hair with deep conditioning and moisturizing remedies to promote the growth of new, healthier hair.

Give your wrecked tresses a new life by following these 10 effective home remedies for dry and damaged hair. You can use any of these conditioning hair masks once or twice a week to help repair and reverse your damaged hair.

1. A Shiny Tea Rinse

Tea is great for more than just a pick-me-up or a sore throat remedy. It’s a great hair color enhancer and a hair rinse that leaves a natural shine to your hair. Just use unsweetened freshly-brewed tea as a final rinse after you are done with your regular shampoo routine. Because it enhances your hair color, brunettes can use black tea, while blondes are advised to use chamomile tea. You can use this trick as frequently as you like.

2. Deep Conditioning with Hot Oil

Warm up half a cup of olive oil, being careful not to boil it. Massage this oil into your hair and cover it with a shower cap. Wrap up with a towel to keep in the heat. Allow the oil to sit for at least 45 minutes so the moisture can build up. Afterwards, shampoo and rinse.

3. Protein-Enhanced Shampoo

To strengthen your strands and repair dry, brittle ends, you need to infuse a little protein into your hair. This can be done by applying a hair treatment consisting of an egg mixed with a small amount of shampoo. Keep it in for five minutes and then rinse well. If homemade isn’t the way you’d like to go, there are a plethora of protein treatments available at your local beauty supply stores. Follow the directions as specified and your strands will be healthy and strong in no time at all.

4. Homemade Hair Rinse

If you’re a swimmer, the chemicals in the swimming pool and the harsh elements in seawater can make your hair brittle. So before a swim, protect your hair with this quick and easy to make homemade hair rinse. Simply mix 1/4 cup of apple cider diluted with 3/4 cup water and cleanse your hair with it. Follow up with a moisturizing conditioner of your choice.

5. Mash Up an Avocado

Avocados have plenty of minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. Try this avocado hair treatment to restore luster to your hair. Combine a ripe, mashed avocado with an egg to make a smooth paste. Apply this on wet hair and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse well. If your hair is quite brittle, then you need to do this at least once a week. Even if your hair is healthy, using this once a month ensures that your hair remains gorgeous, lustrous, and strong.

6. A Coconut Oil Treatment

Coconut oil is a wonderful elixir for damaged hair and works great on thick and heavy hair. Thoroughly coat your hair with the oil after dampening it with some water. If coconut oil is not your preference, botanical oils like sweet almond, olive, or jojoba oil are all great alternatives. Put on a shower cap and wrap your hair up in a thick warm towel for effective deep conditioning. Rinse out the oil by following up with shampoo.

7. Bounce and Volume for Limp Hair

For bringing life back into your damaged and limp hair, combine 3 egg whites, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Rub this mixture into your hair and put on a shower cap. Shampoo your hair and rinse out the treatment and cleanser after half an hour.

8. The Internal Moisturizer

A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like gamma-linolenic acid, is great for keeping your hair moisturized. An easy way to add omega-3 to your diet is to take capsules of flaxseed oil, borage oil, or evening primrose oil on a daily basis. You can consume 250mg capsules of any of these oils one to three times a day, as specified. If you want omega 3s straight from the source, add foods like salmon, fresh tuna, oysters, halibut, yogurt, eggs, and omega-3-enriched breads and pastas.


How to Get the Perfect Slicked Back Style


Boosted by its traditionalist origins, the slicked-back hairstyle has reemerged as a contemporary favourite. Able to be interpreted for different hair types, lengths and occasions, the wide variety of ways this style can be worn can be overwhelming. So, to help you find your perfect match, we’ve rounded up the top, sleek styles around for your viewing. These are the best slicked back hairstyles for men right now.


Slicked Back Hairstyles

1. Classic Slick Back

For a simple, timeless take on the slicked-back trend, opt for classic styling. For this look, use a wet look gel or pomade for decent hold with a glossy touch. Comb hair back repetitively and thoroughly. Be mindful of products that are too rigid as they will make the hair look flat. Opt for a product which will give your locks a thicker appearance despite its pulled-back structure.


Classic Slick Back


2. Slick Back with Beard

A traditional way to interpret slicked-back hairstyles is to complement this hair trend with facial hair. Opt for a light beard or strategic scruff to amplify the look of your slicked-back hairstyle. Be mindful of your face shape and the proportions of your features when trying out this trend. Facial hair will add a dimensional element to your slicked-back look, creating a complementary appearance.

3. Side Part Slick Back

50’s fictional style muses, like Don Draper, are no doubt pivotal in the reemergence of the side part slick back. To appropriate such a Mad Men style for yourself, create a sharp part with a silkier product, which will afford a greater sleekness to your look. Additionally, ensure you have determined which side your part appears most flattering on for appropriate styling.

4. Man Bun Slick Back

Much like all trends, when done right, the man bun works incredibly well. When done wrong, this trend can register as unflattering and misappropriated. Consider a beard or facial hair when trying out this version of the slicked-backed hairstyle and contemplate your features when determining whether a man bun would look flattering on you.

5. Slick Back Pompadour

The slick back pompadour is a traditional hairstyle that has seen a resurgence in recent years. As such, it’s an excellent style that’s both classic and on-trend. To create the look, you need to achieve a neat, smoothed-back style that’s full of volume. To do so, try using volume-boosting products and blow-drying your hair upside down to direct roots upward.

6. Long Slicked Back Hair

Men with long hair can also rock a slicked-back style. Perfect for formal functions, a sleek look is ideal for giving grown out locks a sophisticated touch. To nail the hairstyle, just comb your long mane back and tuck it behind your ears. Then, use a flexible hairspray for a soft appearance or a firm-hold mousse or wet-look pomade for a bolder aesthetic. Remember though; you won’t need to use a lot as the weight of your hair will help keep it in place.



7. Slick Back Undercut

The slick back undercut is another classic hairstyle that has seen a resurgence in recent years. The look, which features a short back and sides with the hair on the top left longer, is perfect for both formal and casual occasions. Thanks to its length and shape, it’s also seriously simple to style.

8. Slick Back with Volume

The blow-dried slick back requires a good quality volumising hair product such as a pomade or a mousse, which will add depth to the hair and give it a distinctly different appearance than the typical shiny, wet look. This version of the popular hair trend hinges on volume, so ensure your nominated product boosts hair thickness without adding frizz.


Slick Back With Volume


9. Slick Back Curly Hair

Curly hair can be notoriously difficult to style, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock a killer slicked-back look. When your hair is damp, just use a blow-dryer and wide-tooth comb to help direct your locks away from your face. Then, if you wish to maintain your natural waves, add sea salt spray and choose a flexible hold product, such as a light mouse. Finally, comb your hair back using your hands and allow your locks to dry naturally for a great slicked-back hairstyle with texture.


Tight Curls


10. Slick Back Waves

For gentlemen with wavy hair, rock this hair trend with slicked back styling specifically for your natural hair type. Utilise a flexible hold product like a lighter mousse, which will provide a bit more flexibility when it comes to harnessing your curls. Additionally, be sure to opt for a messier look, which will add dimension to the natural volume created by your waves

7 Ways to Nourish your Hair from the Outside

The key to a well-rounded hair care routine consists of a nutrient-rich diet, healing herbs, supportive supplements, healthy lifestyle practices, and natural external treatments.

To help you nourish your hair from the inside out, I’ve created a two-part blog to give you the ultimate guide to caring for your hair in a natural & healthy way, from both the inside and the outside


No. 1 – Shampoo your hair less frequently

It may seem counterintuitive, but did you know that the ideal frequency for washing your hair is between 1-3 times a week?

Shampoo strips your hair and scalp of sebum, the oil your sebaceous glands produce to protect your hair and keep it healthy and supple. When you wash away the naturally produced sebum, and especially when you wash it too often, your glands produce more sebum, which means your hair can become even oiler than you already thought it was!
And to top it off, by removing the oils too often you can actually strip and dry out your hair and your scalp, giving you dandruff, greasy roots and dry ends – gah!

The best thing to support a healthy head of hair is to get into a healthy hair washing routine, allowing time in between for the natural oils to absorb. This will add natural softness to the hair over time.

To maintain a healthy scalp and oil balance, try shampooing your hair a maximum of 1-3x per week. Naturally, start reducing your hair washing over time – don’t just go from washing every day to just Monday mornings!
Simply try to wait longer in between washing your hair. Instead of every day, go for every two days, then every 3rd or 4th day. Keep in mind that it may take a little time for your hair to adjust to less frequent washing, but remember; in the end, it means healthy, lustrous tresses.

No. 2 – Switch over to natural shampoo

And whilst we’re on the subject of shampoo – natural is the way to go my friends.
Natural shampoo cleanses hair without stripping it completely of its natural oils, plus it’s much friendlier on the environment 🙂

Take your time to shop around for natural hair products that don’t contain any nasty chemical ingredients or additives like parabens, preservatives, sulphates, artificial fragrance and dyes (to name a handful).

These chemical ridden products can cause all matter of irritation to the scalp (we’re talking dermatitis, psoriasis, or eczema ) and even damage to your hair over time.

And don’t forget how absorbent your skin is. You can actually absorb these chemicals into your skin via your scalp, increasing your exposure to hormone disruptors and toxic build up. You only have to see how nicotine patches work to see how easily your skin absorbs things into the body.

As everybody’s hair is different I advise trying out different products and companies to find the right ones for your hair. We have plenty to try out in our Nourish store’s, so feel free to pop in, or have a browse in our online store.

Products we love:

Faith in Nature – beautiful smelling shampoos containing herbal extracts and essential and organic oils to leave your hair feeling both smooth and glossy – just as nature intended. They use organic and natural ingredients and all products are free from parabens, perfume, colourings and SLES. Faith in Nature don’t test on animals, nor do they contain any animal ingredients. Their ingredients are naturally derived and cruelty-free sourced.
Try for yourself – we love Rosemary, Lavender and Geranium, Ginger and Lime or Aloe Vera.

Urtemkram – lovely organic and vegan shampoos with hair and scalp healing benefits. Urtekram Organic Nettle Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is a great organic and vegan anti-dandruff shampoo combining nettles, known for their high mineral content that may relieve a dry scalp, with magnolia bark extract and aloe vera, known for their moisturising benefits.

Jason – has plenty of natural hair care products for shampooing, conditioning and styling.

Surya Brasil – If you’re still wanting to cover those greys, or just try out a new shade but don’t want to damage your hair, Suyra Brasil have some amazing all natural henna hair colour creams to cover your grey or change your hair color, while simultaneously protecting your scalp and colouring, conditioning, strengthening and adding extra shine to your hair. Plus they have a great shampoo and conditioner to nourish those locks of yours!

No. 3 – Condition your hair

For those of you with very short hair, you probably don’t need conditioner, but for those with longer hair or very fine hair, here’s a tip on conditioning: Shampoo your roots and condition your ends.

Leave your conditioner in for roughly 3-5 minutes to allow it to really absorb and then wash out.
We love Faith in Nature (especially the Coconut Conditioner) and Suyra Brasil conditioner.

No. 4 – Scalp massage

Scalp massage is a lovely way to stimulate hair follicles and promote growth. Massaging your scalp increases the blood flow to your hair follicles, conditions the scalp, and helps relieve stress.

Simply massage your hair with oil once a week, running the oil through your hair, root to tip and allow it to stay in anywhere from 20 minutes or even overnight before washing it out – this trick can really nourish your locks. You may need to wash twice with shampoo to really get the excess oil out.

Extra tip: Rosemary is excellent for helping to prevent dandruff and hair loss, whilst also working as a great circulatory stimulant when gently massaged into your scalp.
Combine a drop or 2 of rosemary essential oil (and/or a drop of ginger) with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil, then gently massage this into your scalp for a circulatory boost.

Try out any of the following oils to help promote growth, nourish your scalp and heal hair damage:

Coconut oil
Olive oil
Avocado oil
Jojoba oil
Argan oil

For anyone with a dry or dandruff-prone scalp, have a look at Moogoo scalp cream. This cream helps return the skin to a healthy condition.

And if oils aren’t your thing, you can even just give yourself a gentle scalp massage while shampooing your hair.

No. 5 – Hair-rinse

If you have a build-up of products in your hair or it’s just feeling really limp, then apple cider vinegar could be the answer. I know this may sound a little strange but it really does work.

You can either mix one part apple cider vinegar with one part water in a water bottle or use one part ACV and one part cold herbal tea (in place of water) like chamomile for example.

Wash your hair like normal with shampoo (and conditioner if you use it) and then finish off by rinsing it with your diluted ACV.

You can choose to leave it in your hair for a few minutes then rinse, or chose not to rinse it out and just leave it in. Don’t worry – you won’t smell like vinegar once your hair is dry 🙂

ACV is a natural conditioner; helps remove product build-up, won’t strip or dry the hair, and contains antibacterial and antifungal properties which help heal itchy and dry scalp conditions.

Personally, I brew my own kombucha, and once it’s reached its vinegar stage, I use that and it works wonderfully!

No. 6 – Avoid heat styling

You can eat all the best foods, drink all the water and cover your hair in all kinds of lotions, but if you constantly blow dry your hair, curl it, straighten it and bleach it, you’re going to suffer from breakage and damage.

Unfortunately, styling with heat is one of the most damaging things you can do to your hair.
Try limiting your use of blow dryers, curling irons and straighteners to the minimum and make sure to keep your hair healthy and moisturized so it can hold up as best it can.
Blasting your hair with heat day after day only serves to make it dryer and weaker. Better yet, try stopping your use of these appliances altogether – even for a little while – simply for the sake of your hair and instead try letting your hair dry naturally as much as possible.

Of course, the occasional use is fine, but even when you do, try lightly brushing a few drops of jojoba or argan oil through your hair for heat protection, or find a natural product to do this job. I know, I know, it’s easier said than done, but if you’re suffering from dry or damaged hair it really is one of the biggest things you can do for the health of your hair.

No. 7 – Get your hair cut/trimmed regularly

To improve the length, strength, and condition of your hair make sure to get it cut or trimmed regularly. The recommended time between cuts is generally 6-8 weeks, and for those of you with really damaged hair and split ends, I’d recommend you follow this hair care routine until your hair has perked up.

I’ll leave you here with one final tip – avoid brushing your hair when it’s wet. This is when it is at its most vulnerable. Soaking wet hair is much more fragile and weak, and brushing it can damage your hair.

One of the most informative blog posts we have ever written in the three-years history of this blog is THIS ONE, titled “What Is TRESemmé and Is It Right for You?”Approved by worlds Best hair-stylists So what are we actually sharing with you today , scroll down folks

it does everything we could ask of a mousse: It smells great, holds curls nicely, prevents frizz–even in intense humidity, and still leaves hair so soft. TRESemmé has become a favorite of many, and it always impresses with what they can deliver at their affordable cost.

Keep reading this TRESemmé Company and Products Review to get our in depth review of some of their products, the good and the bad, but spoiler alert: TRESemmé is where it’s at!

TRESemmé History and Background

TRESemmé was founded in 1947 in the United States as a salon hair care brand. The name was inspired by a woman named Edna Emme, a well-known cosmetologist, and spun to sound like très-aimé, meaning well-loved in French. Because the brand was in fact well-loved, the products were brought to the public and marketed as the first salon-brand to be sold in supermarkets and pharmacies.

TRESemmé was purchased by Alberto-Culver, a hair and skincare company, in 1968. In 2010, Unilever purchased Alberto, adding its brands including Tresemme, Simple and VO5 to Unilever’s portfolio.

Overview of TRESemmé Products

TRESemmé makes some amazing hair care that lives up to its “salon-grade” reputation. They’ve got softening shampoos, nutrient rich conditioners, and hair styling and conditioning products that come through with their claims whether that be to strengthen, volumize, condition, define, repair, smooth or texturize.

A cool feature on their website is the PROfiler quizwhich asks you questions about your styling habits, what your hair is like currently, and what you’d like your hair to be more like in the future, and they compute it all to come up with a list of products that will help you achieve your hair goals. It’s a great tool, and that’s how I’d describe TRESemmé haircare in general. They provide genuinely great tools.


This is a moisturizing shampoo that maintains softness and a healthy amount of natural oils in the hair. It is infused with coconut and jojoba oils which are great moisturizers and nourish the hair beautifully. It’s a gentle cleanser with lower sulfate levels than most shampoos.

It’s silicone-free, hypo-allergenic, and isn’t dyed. The TRESemmé Naturals shampoo has also been discontinued in favor of the newer Botanique shampoo, but the Naturals is still out there for the time being, albeit at a slightly higher price.


The first thing We have to say about this dry shampoo is that it does not leave any white cast whatsoever, which makes this one of the only dry shampoo options at the drugstore that won’t make dark hair look ashy.

It uses mineral clay to absorb excess oil from second or third day hair, giving it some texture and making it look clean and dry. There’s a Fresh Start Volumizing option that gives some volume to limp hair and also works really well.


When hair is damaged, hair cuticles are lifted which makes hair rough, frizzy, and dull. Keratin is a structural protein, and the main material that hair is comprised of. When it is applied to the hair it forms a protective layer around the individual strands, laying the cuticles back down and giving the hair a smoother texture.

Keratin treatments have been avoided as consumers become more aware of the dangers of formaldehyde which is included in many Keratin treatments because it helps the Keratin bond to the hair, and without it, the effects of such treatments would fade after a few washes.

The TRESemmé Keratin system is completely formaldehyde-free, which works for them because they are meant to be used on a regular basis anyhow. The conditioner is makes hair feel super soft and look very silky, and it can hydrate and help heal dry or damaged hair. One caveat with this conditioner, and Keratin treatments in general, is that it loosens curls and should probably be avoided if you’re going for a really bouncy, curly look.


This leave in conditioner is mind-bogglingly good. Nothing can permanently fuse split ends back together, but the Split Remedy moisturizes hair incredibly, making it look softer and shinier than ever, and it somehow binds split ends together while it’s in your hair. It can also prevent further damage and end splitting and I personally saw some pretty crazy results.

Obviously once damage is done it’s almost impossible to reverse, but  our clients noticed that thier hair appeared healthier immediately and that it was looking a lot less damaged over time. Of all of the conditioners they’ve used, including ones from LushGarnier, and Pantene, this is the most effective! AS PER OUR CLIENTS !!!!


TRESemmé is part of Unilever which is not a cruelty-free brand. They don’t test their finished products on animals, but they commission other companies and researchers to test ingredients on animals on their behalf, allowing them to label the products as not having been tested on animals.

Unilever has made efforts to improve their animal practices in recent years, such as with their Unilever Sustainable Living Plan which involves the company working in unison with animal welfare organizations to only purchase ingredients from suppliers with suitable animal welfare standards as defined by these organizations, but they still have a lot of room for growth in this area.


We all want professional quality hair care, but the average person doesn’t want to drop (PKR-4,860) on a bottle of shampoo, and nor should they. TRESemmé keeps their prices really fair, and they seems to be the real deal.

The brand is used backstage at New York fashion week, it’s used by professionals at salons, and it’s trusted by so many individual consumers because they put out good quality stuff with formulas that make a real difference in hair’s health and ease of styling.

Thanks for reading our TRESemmé Company and Products Review!
