Give your hair a HACIAL*

That’s a fa­cial for * your hair – aka the lat­est way to get great locks

STEP 1 EX­FO­LI­ATE

“Start by clear­ing de­bris and keep the skin on your scalp mois­turised so that your hair thrives as it grows,” says hair­dresser An­drew Jose. Gen­tly mas­sage an ex­fo­lia­tor in once a week for a smoother, clearer, health­ier scalp.

STEP2 CLEANSE

Sham­poo­ing is ha­bit­ual, like brush­ing your teeth: you hardly think about it, but a con­sid­ered sud-sesh could trans­form your hair. Use a sham­poo that also re­moves prod­uct build-up and spend a few mo­ments re­ally mas­sag­ing it in.

STEP3 TREAT

Use a mask treat­ment once a week af­ter sham­poo­ing to pen­e­trate re­pair and nour­ish the hair cu­ti­cle. Try do­ing it when you’re soak­ing in a hot bath, as the steam will help to put mois­ture back into your hair at the same time.

STEP 4 TONE

“Ton­ing [with con­di­tioner] will close the cu­ti­cle, seal­ing the mask that’s left in­side the hair shaft,” says An­drew. For dry or dam­aged hair, try us­ing a con­di­tioner that’s in­fused with ker­atin.

STEP5 RE­STORE

Your skin loves a serum be­cause it pen­e­trates deep to treat any prob­lems. Hair serums work in the same way and are just as in­ten­sive. If your strands break eas­ily, choose a serum with fatty acids and silk pro­teins to help re­store the fi­bres. For your scalp, look for in­gre­di­ents you’d find in skin­care, such as col­la­gens and pep­tides or su­per-hy­drat­ing oils.
