HAIR HACK #1: FINE OR OILY HAIR? TRY DRY SHAMPOO
If your hair is fine or tends to get greasy, washing it often can feel mundane. Prolong washes and give your hair extra volume with dry shampoo. Try the TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo for a quick fix. The lightweight formula infused with clay and citrus, removes excess oils and odours while giving your hair a fresh boost. Perfect for second day hair or looks on the go. To use, hold the bottle 20-25 centimetres away from your hair. Spray it directly onto roots and throughout the rest of your hair. Brush out hair and style as usual with your favourite TRESemmé products.
HAIR HACK #2: KEEP GREY ROOTS IN-CHECK
Buy time between colour appointments with TRESemmé Root Touch Up Spray. An easy-to-apply, quick-drying spray, it instantly conceals roots and greys so you can keep your colour looking salon fresh every day. The smudge-proof formula stays perfectly until your next shampoo. Simply shake, spray onto roots and let the product dry for one minute. Available in multiple shades.
HAIR HACK #3: FIGHT FRIZZ WITH A SILK PILLOWCASE
Redefine the way you sleep with a silk pillowcase. When it comes to luxury pillowcases - the hype is real. For those of you who wake up with bedhead, this might be the solution! Silk fibres can help to maintain your style and reduce frizz.
HAIR HACK #4: ELIMINATE HEAT TOOLS
Constant heat can damage hair long-term. Give your mane a break and opt for air-drying instead. Waves are a good way to add texture and volume without effort. Just give your hair a wash and add a quarter-sized drop of TRESemmé Tres Two Ultra Firm Control Texture Gel into your hands and use your fingers to coat evenly. If your hair is on the straighter side, try braiding it after the product is applied. Unweave the braid once your hair is completely dry and voilà! Perfect beach waves.
HAIR HACK #5: COLOURED HAIR? USE THE RIGHT SHAMPOO
If you’re sporting a hair hue that’s not your natural tone (your secret’s safe with us), use a shampoo designed for coloured-treated hair. Wash with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Colour Shampoo for Coloured Hair to help keep your tint lasting longer. Formulated with Keratin protein and Moroccan argan oil, it gently cleanses hair leaving it soft and vibrant. Pair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Colour Conditioner for best results.
HAIR HACK #6: ONLY CONDITION YOUR ENDS
Assuming you want to keep oil at bay, conditioner can add an oily texture when used incorrectly. When conditioning, it’s important to apply to damp hair focusing on the ends to mid-lengths. Minimize that greasy feel by avoiding your scalp! It’s non-negotiable. Discover our new Scalp Detox Conditioner. Specifically designed for oily hair, this hydrating conditioner is infused with Hyaluronic Hydra Calm technology – purifying and rebalancing hair for the ultimate detox. Check out our TRESemmé professional-style conditioners tailored to your hair needs.
HAIR HACK #7: SAVE TIME WITH SPRAY
Blowouts can be tedious depending on your hair type. If you love a polished look but want to reduce the amount of time you spend drying your hair, a good heat protectant spray does the trick. Browse our newest range of heat protectant sprays to help keep your hair smooth and safe, sending you on your way sooner to do the things you love. Evenly spray throughout hair before applying heat and get more sleep!
HAIR HACK #8: DETANGLE WITH CARE
Combing through wet hair can be painful especially when hair is very tangled. Luckily, you’re reading this article, so the pain is over. If you have a sensitive scalp, avoid tears by using a wide tooth comb or detangler brush. Start in small sections at the ends, working your way up. This method gently removes tangles instead of breaking hair by brushing from root to tip.
HAIR HACK #9: ROCK A MESSY BUN
Take ponytails up a notch and go for a messy bun – a versatile look that can take you from day to night. It’s so easy it’ll become your new go-to. Grab your hair, tie it into a ponytail and twist. Once it’s completely twisted, wrap it around the base and complete with an elastic. No need to over-coiffe, the messier the better!
HAIR HACK #10: NOURISH YOUR HAIR WITH SERUM
Dry, frizzy hair giving you the blues? Give your strands a pick-me-up with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum. This super serum helps fight frizz, detangles, softens, adds shine and tames flyaways! Get healthy-looking hair in just one easy step. Pump serum into palm and rub hands together. Apply on clean, damp hair from mid length through the ends. Style as usual. This product can also be applied to dry hair for frizz control. Combine with Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner for best results.
