Much like your skin, there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to your crowning glory. We are all born with a multitude of different hair types that require products targeting their individual needs for a full, healthy mane. But while most women are quick to seek professional advice when purchasing skincare products that address their specific concerns, many are content to buy over-the-counter hair products without in-depth research and knowledge. Moreover, while women seldom think twice about investing time and effort on their skincare routines, be it at home or with facialists and dermatologists, that’s rarely the case when it comes to hair care. Instead, a typical daily routine for most women involves a quick wash, condition and blow-dry; with hair and scalp treatments regarded as an add-on when colouring their hair at the salon. Be it fine, thick or curly, each hair type and texture has its unique set of characteristics. In order to ensure that you’re giving your tresses the TLC that it truly needs, it is crucial to recognise the different challenges associated with your particular hair type. We speak to top industry experts to find out what you need to know about the most common hair types in Singapore, the issues facing each type, and the must-have products for strong, manageable and healthy locks.
