We’ve been in lockdown for what feels like eternity, so it’s no surprise we’ve forgotten what clean, styled hair feels like. Your sofa won’t judge your messy bun or greasy ponytail, and thankfully the ‘7-day-old’ unwashed hair isn’t noticeable on your daily zoom call meetings.
But as we move back to normality and our work and social lives pick up, it’s time we started falling back in love with clean, styled hair. We want to feel a bit more polished and pulled together than we have done for the last 18 months… enter the new anti-lockdown trend of ‘Liquid Hair.’
Ultra-smooth, glossy strands which move in a fluid like motion without any frizz in sight, is the new trend taking social feeds by storm. We get it, it’s nice to feel more glam and ‘done’ again, so we’ve hauled together some of our favs to help you achieve this look.
The Ultimate Frizz Fighters
Oils and serums are the most effective ways to combat frizz and see instant smoothing results pre and post styling. When we think of oils, the words heavy and greasy come to mind, however the OI Oil 135ml by Davines is nothing of the sort. This great-smelling lightweight oil, tames frizz and flyaways without weighing down your hair or making it greasy.
Using a serum is a great way to add moisture to the hair to calm frizz and improve manageability, the SachaJuan Shine Serum goes to higher heights and gives an ultra-smoothing effect by sealing split ends and preventing further damage.
Smoothing creams are the perfect antidote for hair woes as they are rich but not sticky. The Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Cream Camellia Oil in Cream is a nourishing, leave-in cream which really controls frizzy, unruly hair leaving it in pristine condition whilst also protecting against UV rays.
To straighten wavy or frizzy hair why not try the Davines Love Hair Smoother 150ml. Its leave-in formula is great to control frizz and hard to manage hair types in an invisible way that does not weigh down hair or leave any residue.
Let it shine
Finishing sprays are a quick and easy way to boost shine after styling. The Milk_Shake Lifestyle Let It Shine Spray 200ml is a fine, lightweight finishing spray with thermo-protection which can be used pre and post styling. It protects from heat styling and leaves your hair ultra-shiny without weighing it down.
Anyone with Blonde hair will know the struggles to get it looking smooth and glossy.
