CoLab Original Dry Shampoo, $9

Created by UK beauty blogger Ruth Crilly, this is my go-to quick fix dry shampoo. The scent of this original formula is a blend of refreshing bergamot and delicate, sweet rose, and its new Love packaging says it all. If you’re travelling to the tropics this month, it’s a beauty essential.


Hask Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse, $16

Just like our bodies, our hair needs to detox from time to time, and by this I mean to cleanse the scalp and each strand from the product build-up and natural oils. To do that try the natural goodness of apple cider vinegar. This organic ingredient cleanses the hair and is rich in antioxidants, which helps to clarify, rebalance, and refresh every strand. Free from SLS, SLES, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol, and artificial colours, there is also a Hask Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner, $17 to match.


Tangle Teezer Compact Styler
in Ombre Chrome Cerise Pink, $30

Like a new collectible nail colour, this latest cerise pink ombre effect, handy hair styler is an essential for grooming your mane when you’re on-the-go. Ideal for detangling damp hair in the shower, it's the brush to have in every bag - one tip, this styler is not designed to used with heat styling.


Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother, $55

If you’re not familiar with Olaplex No. 1 Bond Multiplier and No. 2 Bond Perfector these are in-salon treatments applied to the hair during and after a lightning service. They help to preserve your hair's integrity, and strength. The homecare version No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner was a game changer for those with frizzy locks. Now there is a new Olaplex; it's called No. 6, and it promises to hydrate, strengthen and, speed up blow-drying time. How I hear you ask? This is a leave-in formula, that doubles as a styling product and treatment all-in-one - it’s genius.


Essano Blonde Tone-Correcting Purple Shampoo, $13

That brassy overtone that destroys the look of blonde locks is hard to balance without the help of a brightening purple-infused shampoo like this. For natural haircare lovers, the extract from violet leaf eliminates that brassy cast, while this low foam, sulphate-free formula, that is also packed in rPET, 100% pre-used, recycled material is good for the planet. #niceworkessano


Fudge Clean Blonde Damage Rewind Conditioner, $25

The violet micro-pigments suspended in an opti-PLEX technology (super hydrating creamy formula), help to erase that yellow tone from blonde hair. While the HairGuard complex seals the cuticle on each strand to keep moisture in and those hair-wrecking pollutants out - and guess what - it works in one application.
