I think I’m quite easily pleased when it comes to haircare; as long as the products don’t make my hair feel greasy, flat or flyaway then I’m a fan. However, having been introduced to the range of haircare from American brand Nexxus, I can definitely see the benefits of spending a bit more and investing in a haircare routine, in much the same way you do with your skincare, which is why I thought that investing in such products would make a great New Years Resolution.
Nexxus make use of skincare ingredients (such as Marine Collagen) and formulate their haircare range to include ingredients that they have found benefit hair and take haircare to the next level. There are currently four ranges in the Nexxus line-up: Nutritive for replenishing moisture in dry hair, Emergencee for reducing breakage on damaged hair, Oil Infinite to help tame unmanageable hair, and finally Youth Renewal for adding volume and shine to fine and ageing hair. After taking the Regimen Diagnosis (do your own one here), it was decided that the range for me is the Emergencee collection, since I regular bleach my hair.
All four of the ranges contain either three or four products. The Emergencee Collection has four: Emergencee Reconstructive Shampoo, Emergencee Reconstructive Conditioner, Emergencee Reconstructive Masque and finally the Emergencee Reconstructive Refortifying Leave-in Creme. If you’re trying this range, I’d say you’d definitely need the basic care duo of the shampoo and conditioner, and if your budget can stretch then I’d go for the masque too – I use it every 4-5 washes. For me the Leave-in Creme is the least essential product; it’s good and it definitely stops flyaways, but there are other, cheaper versions that do just as well. This is a great range for hair that is prone to flatness, general lack of volume and that would benefit from light products that won’t add weight. The full range is stocked at both Selfridges (link) and QVC (link) with prices starting at £14 for the shampoo and £15 for the conditioner.
