As you can imagine, working in an office with girls brings an abundance of beauty chats; from what lipstick makes our teeth look whiter, to whether Bum Bum cream actually works (we’re still undecided, just in case you were wondering…), but lately the hot topic among us all has been haircare. We all put our hair through its paces on a day-to-day basis and we’re all partial to a dye job; think bright purple tresses to platinum blonde and balayage. It’s because of this that we’ve become a dab hand at cherry-picking the best haircare products that help us achieve swishy, swoon-worthy locks (if we do say so ourselves). After discovering what makes our hair tick, we’re now giving you the low down on the haircare heroes we simply can’t get enough of…
Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo CoConut SPRiTz
Over the years, this has well and truly earned its position in my top five haircare products. As a purple-headed gal with naturally dark hair, bleach is used regularly to keep me channelling my inner unicorn, therefore my hair gets unnecessarily knotty. This is where a leave-in-conditioner comes to my hair’s rescue. This particular one is something I go coco-nutty for – pun intended! It smells like a beach in a bottle and is ideal for all life situations, especially holidays. I not only use this on wet hair to detangle, but also to freshen my rather dry hair up throughout the day.
Living Proof Healthy Hair 5-in-1 Styling Treatment
Although Living Proof is a firm fave among many of us in the LiB office, our Digital Marketing Executive Ellie is the biggest fan: “This is honestly the only styling product I’ve ever felt has actually made a difference to my hair. I apply it throughout wet hair before blow-drying to give my fine hair more body and weight. It also seems to smooth out any flyaways and general frizz. I have multiple bottles of it stashed in various bags so I never run the risk of forgetting it. Seriously.” Get hair like Ellie (serious #hairgoals btw) and add it to your next box!
Hair by Sam McKnight Cool Girl Texture Mist & Lazy Girl Dry Shampoo
If we’re totes honest with you, we can be both cool and super lazy in our office, but our Account Manager Harri has recently discovered this new haircare range from top stylist Sam McKnight: “I’ve been in love with Sam McKnight’s work as a Session Stylist for years. So when the King of cool girl hair brought out a range of 4 styling products, I HAD to give them a go! They’re perfect for creating quick, effortlessly gorgeous looks à la Kate Moss, plus they smell amazing too.” Guess what? We’re now all jumping on the bandwagon; the range smells just like walking into Hollister or Abercrombie, too.
Umberto Giannini Curl Jelly Scrunching Jelly
This is the Holy Grail for curly girls. Seriously, it will change your hair game forever if you battle with frizz, manageability, flop, or just troublesome curls. Our Junior Business Development Manager Sasha is the one and only curly girl in our office and she loves it: “This lightweight gel is an absolute dream- it leaves my curls soft, bouncy and well-defined! I love the oriental fragrance, too”. Add it to your next box!
The Wet Brush Pro
A true game changer when it comes to brushing through wet, often tangly hair, The Wet Brush makes the dreaded post-shower brushing of your hair a lot nicer while overcoming any painful knots and tangles instantly. The Wet Brush has been designed with thin, strong and flexible IntelliFlex bristles that detangle without pulling, tugging or pain; resulting in healthier hair with no split ends or loss of hair. Pain-free detangling right here, let us tell ya. You can also treat your hair to this by purchasing the Cosmopolitan Holiday Edit.
Oribe Dry Texturising Spray
This is another of my all time favourite haircare products; honestly, at first I was wary of the hype surrounding this product but it’s seriously proven its worth among my stash (I even have a spare on my desk right now). I’ve actually lost count of how many bottles of this miracle worker I’ve gone through, but it’s a lot! Why do I love it so much? It keeps my waves in check, giving me perfectly tousled hair with just the right amount of lift and texture without feeling grimy and heavy.
Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner
An all-round great haircare duo that we all like to use. If your hair is feeling confused, this will help balance out flat roots and dry, damaged ends. Although suitable for any hair type, we’ve found that they work particularly well on medium-textured, wavy or fine but over-processed hair. Our Account Manager Cassie swears by them: “Philip Kingsley’s Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner are my go to hair saviours. I go to the hairdressers regularly and get highlights put through my hair and as you can imagine the bleach dries my hair out a lot so it needs as much moisture as it can get! I find that after using the Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner over the course of a week or so makes my hair noticeably less brittle and super shiny!” Add ’em to your next box!
