Goodbye greys!

Greys grow out fast and can be especially annoying when they grow at obvious spots like the hairline. Even before the pandemic struck, how many of us head to the salon fortnightly to touch up our roots? The solution lies in a few handy touch-up tools we have compiled right here for you.

Tip: Always read the instructions carefully before using any products. Apply sparingly and build up coverage gradually for a natural look.

Grow lustrous locks!

Did you know that hair brushing is one of the simplest ways to achieve shiny, healthy hair? Using the right hairbrush can help redistribute natural oils from the scalp to the roots of the hair, as well as stimulate your scalp’s blood circulation. Here are some brushes we recommend.

Tip: Bend forward, using gentle pressure, brush from the nape of your neck to the top several times, layer by layer, then move on to each side. After that, lift your head and brush from top to bottom.
