1. Charles Worthington
Charles Worthington is probably one of the most famous names in the industry. With the brand’s award-winning flagship salon based in Covent Garden, you’d expect their products to cost you a small fortune, but their ranges are surprisingly affordable. Our Ecommerce Writer, Grace Lindsay, has been using the Grow Strong range to help with her broken hair, and says that her locks already feel stronger after just a few weeks.
2. The Body Shop
The Body Shop is one of our favourite brands for affordable skincare, makeup and haircare. They use lots of natural ingredients, and they’ve even launched a refill scheme that they are rolling out into stores all around the UK. Simply pick up a refillable aluminium bottle and refill, reuse and repeat on haircare, shower gels and hand washes. Our Health Editor, Ally Head, loves the Ginger haircare range, which is designed to soothe dry and itchy scalps.
When it comes to haircare, you might not automatically think of Garnier, but the brand’s products are seriously impressive. The whole team love the hair masks, which come in lots of different scents. Keep on scrolling for our favourites…
4. L’Oreal Paris
Can L’Oreal do no wrong? Not only is their makeup loved by millions, but their extensive haircare range is always at the top of our list. If you’ve read our guide to the best shampoo for hair loss, then you’ll already know that our Beauty Editor, Katie Thomas, is a big fan of the L’Oreal Paris Fibrology range.
L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Fine Hair Thickening Shampoo, £4.99 | Boots
A breakthrough in the science of hair, the L’Oreal labs created this shampoo with a patented ingredient that is proven to penetrate the fibre and expand hair from within. Cool, right?
Ah, Aussie. This Australian brand has been in our lives for years now, and we don’t see it leaving anytime soon. Not only is it super affordable, but it’s effective too. All of the ingredients are sourced straight from Australia, and the brand uses hand-harvesting methods where possible to preserve the land. Our Ecommerce Writer’s go-to product for her dry and frizzy hair? The three minute miracle treatment, of course.
Aussie Three Minute Miracle Moisture Deep Treatment, £4.99 | Feelunique
Our holy grail product. All you have to do is apply this after shampooing, and leave for one to three minutes for it to work its magic.
When it comes to the best dry shampoo, you can’t go wrong with Batiste. With a range of different scents and different dry shampoos depending on your hair colour, this brand has got you covered. In fact, they’ve just launched a new range called ‘Naturally’, with plant-powered ingredients and 40% less packaging.
Batiste Dry Shampoo Blush, £4.99 | Boots
This is one of our favourite scents, with an aroma of romantic rose notes combined with lychee. A couple of sprays and your oily roots will be gone for good.
7. Bleach London
Our Beauty Editor, Katie Thomas, raves about Bleach London, and included the below shampoo in her guide to the best purple shampoo for blonde hair. The brand is the brainchild of hair stylist Alex Brownsell, who turned bleaching and colouring her friends hair into a lifestyle. If you have coloured hair, then this vegan and cruelty free brand is the one to go for.
This salon-inspired haircare collection is definitely one to have on your radar. They’ve created a range of products for different hair types. You’ve probably heard of the Argon Oil of Morocco range, but we recommend checking out their other offerings, too.
Superdrug recently launched their own affordable haircare range, and we were so excited to try it out for ourselves. The formula is nice and hydrating, and the fact that it’s sulphate free is definitely a plus.
TRESemme is one of those brands that has been around for years, and it’s not to be overlooked. We love the affordable yet luxury products, and our Fashion Editor, Zoe Anastasiou, swears by the below duo to keep her locks looking healthy. Trust us when we say, if you could see Zoe’s hair, you’ll want to add these to your basket straight away.
