Make every day a good hair day. It’s time to pamper your tresses with these four lifesavers. By Summer Lee
Hair can be damaged easily without proper care. We subject our hair to harmful things like heat styling tools, bleaching, repeated colour treatments and even exposure to the hot, humid Singaporean weather every day. If you’ve been finding it a struggle to tame that mane, It’s definitely time to give your hair some much-needed pampering. Here are four new hair care products to help!

Frizzy Hair Fighter: Tsubaki Nano Damage Care Hair Water Silky/Rich ($16.90, Watsons and Guardian)
If you’re looking to throw a simple and quick hair care fix into your daily routine, this is for you. Formulated with a high concentration of hair-conditioning amino acids, derived through an ancient Japanese fermentation process, this promises the damage repair you need for silky-smooth strands. Carefully selected camellia oil and Tsubaki’s Penetrative Nano Repair Oil are two other key ingredients that impart moisture and shine while minimising hair damage. Simply spray on the product in the morning to smooth out bed hair, or on towel-dried tresses at night for great locks in the morning. The product also provides UV and heat protection! Choose from two selections, Silky or Rich to suit your hair.
Frizzy Hair Fighter: Palmer’s Manuka Flower Honey Finishing Hair Oil ($19.90, selected pharmacies)
Known for their skin-hydrating products, Palmer’s is helping you say goodbye to frizzy hair with this sulfate-free, colour-safe hair moisturiser. Made with Manuka Flower Honey straight from New Zealand, Palmer’s Manuka Flower Honey Finishing Hair Oil restores the moisture content as well as gives shine to all hair types. Amla oil, cocoa and shea butter also provide beneficial nutrients for hair. The oil can be used directly on the scalp, as it claims to strengthen hair follicles, prevent hair loss and offer heat protection against styling tools.
Frizzy Hair Fighter: Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner ($8.90, leading pharmacies)
If you’re hoping for a miracle, this conditioner comes pretty close with its promise to repair three months’ worth of hair damage in just three minutes! The new formula has an improved formula that is easy to rinse out and continues to treat and protect locks as hair dries, reducing friction and tangling. Compared to Pantene’s regular conditioner, this delivers even more smoothing effects and provides more protection against damage and moisture-loss from styling and combing.
