Avocado-obsessed? You’ll love this!

Amra, Junior Beauty Editor

“After wearing my natural hair in box braids month after month, I’m finally taking a break from hair extensions and flaunting my curls this spring.

When my mane is tucked away into box braids, I can’t wash it as thoroughly as I’d like to, which means I’m left with a lot of product build up. So, I’ve picked out the Dove Nourishing Secrets Strengthening Ritual Shampoo to help give my strands a much-needed detox.

Enriched with avocado and calendula extracts, which are both know for their nourishing and anti-breakage properties, this shampoo works to cleanse and fortify strands from root to tip (yay!).

The best thing, though? It smells just like a spring garden. Healthier-looking strands, here I come.”

Damaged hair? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Leona, Junior Beauty Editor

“This spring, my mane motto is to keep my hair game on-point and super nourished. This means cutting back on heat and spending a little extra time in the bath applying my favourite hair treat: the TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask.

This deep-conditioning formula helps replenish my strands, leaving them touchably soft, healthier-looking and shiny as hell. You know what this means, right? My locks will be seriously selfie-ready!”

It’s time for you to jump on the biotin bandwagon!

Beth, Junior Beauty Editor

“Everyone’s talking about biotin (we’re looking at you Kim Kardashian West). Like you, I was wondering about the hype – that was until I tried the TRESemmé Biotin+ Repair 7 Primer Cream

This intensively moisturising cream is formulated with biotin to help target 7 different signs of damage, including frizz, breakage, dryness and lack of shine. Since it also provides you with protection against heat of up to 230⁰c, you can use it to blow dry, curl and straighten, too.

With a slew of amazing mane benefits, it’s no wonder I’m deeming this product my spring holy grail. Are you ready to do the same?”
