SPOTLIGHT ON

The secret to great hair

30 October 2018


There’s more to heartbreakingly-good hair than just a so-so shampoo, but you know that. From styling and treatments to innovative tools and power primers, 2018’s hit hair buys focus on health – and guarantee you great hair, every single day. Looking to ‘do something beautiful? Treat someone you love (okay, treat yourself) to one of Fabled by Marie Claire’s recommend new season hair heroes below:

1.CURL POWER


Curls made a huge comeback in 2018 and in response, there’s a slew of new brands that cater specifically for girls with curls – and some exciting additions to our favourite hair care collections. Not got natural curls? The experts at Fabled by Marie Claire love the ghd Classic Curl Tong £120. Perfect for creating perfectly defined smaller curls in record time, the 26mm medium barrel works brilliantly on shorter hair too. For a red carpet-worthy finish, add a spritz of ghd Final Shine Spray £10. Simply mist over your finished style from 30cm (or step into said mist, if you’re feeling particularly fabulous) This lightweight and delicately scented spray adds gloss, calms flyaways and helps to better define your waves.

2. SMOOTH OPERATOR

If curls aren’t your thing, why not try GHD Platinum straightner - aka the ultimate hair straightener.

The innovative temperature control feature of this multi award winning iron allows you to choose from five different temperatures, ensuring optimum performance for all hair types. You can set the iron from 100 degrees to 200 degrees, so you can choose the heat that's best suited to your hair type.

In turn, floating mineral-coated ceramic plates are proven to be kinder to hair, leaving it feeling conditioned and cared for. And for the time-poor (read: all of us) you may be relieved to hear that The Original Iron takes 20 seconds to reach maximum temperature.

3. BOOMERANG BUY

Korres Natural Mask Almond & Linseed for Dry/Damaged Hair, Vegan 125ml £10 is one buy that Fabled by Marie Claire’s team of experts unanimously love - and repeat buy, time and time again. Used 1-2 times weekly, this nourishing hair mask moisturises from root-to-end and helps prevent frizz. Almond and Linseed extracts combined with Shea butter ensure hair retains its moisture, while boosting resistance against breakage and split ends.

 Apply mask onto damp hair after shampooing and massage in gently, avoiding your roots. Leave for 3-5 minutes then rinse thoroughly. The result? Healthy, strokeably smooth and, yes, brilliantly shiny hair.

4. BRUSH WITH FAME


Using a damaging hair brush, or being too vigorous with one, can cause a lot of damage. In turn, brushes with metal prongs - which get too hot when heat styling - can burn the outer hair cuticle and scratch the scalp, whilst boar bristle brushes are similarly menacing as they easily tear away sections of the hair cuticle. The cuticle is so important. Composed of tightly packed scales that overlap like tiles on a roof, it acts as armour, defending the inner part of your hair, the cortex, from moisture loss. The cuticle also determines shine as, when its scales are smooth, it reflects light. Instead, use a brush with rounded, plastic prongs and a vented, cushioned base.’ Fabled by Marie loves the ghd Paddle Brush £20.00.



5. SLEEPING BEAUTY


For hair worthy of a (thoroughly modern) princess look no further than Balmain Paris Hair Couture Revitalizing Mask, £29  Get your healthy hair back! The Revitalizing Mask is a beautiful product to intensively repair damaged hair. Give your hair the nutrition it craves. An intense replenishing treatment for dry, damaged and over processed hair.
