The Best Products to Help Style Shorter Hair
The common misconception is that shorter hair is low maintenance and whilst that may be true to some extent, you shouldn’t go abandoning your barnet and cleaning out your beauty cabinets just yet if you’ve decided to get ‘the chop’. Although cutting your hair can make if feel healthier and thicker, it still needs TLC, even more so as the length between root and tip is greatly reduced, making split ends a big concern with many find that their hair seemingly ‘stops’ growing. But don’t worry, you can still make that drastic cut and keep your hair in tip-top condition even when it’s short. In our latest blog, we breakdown the best products to help style shorter hair.
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again. It’s so important that you get a product that suited to your hair type. Drug store shampoo and conditioners are a one size fits all – but that’s not you! Whether you have straight, curly, wavy, or kinky hair – there’s a product out there made to give your hair nourishment and strengthening it deserves. Our favourite pick is the Insight range of shampoos and conditioners as they have a product for everything, from the Insight Dry Hair- Nourishing Shampoo for those with dry frizzy hair, to the Insight Sensitive- Sensitive Skin Shampoo – they’ve got you covered!
It doesn’t matter if you have long or short hair, over washing your hair can more often than not do more harm than good. However, this is especially true for short hair as you can seriously dry out your scalp and the tips of your hair causing it to become dry, brittle, and damaged. The best way to avoid this is to wash your hair every other day or if you can, every few days. Worried about greasy roots? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo not only helps to absorb oil, it refreshes your hair and gives it volume, perfect for those days when you just need to get going!
It can be really easy to just let your hair air dry, however, research has shown that brushing your hair stimulates the small blood vessels called capillaries in your scalp, increasing blood circulation and the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. This could encourage hair growth, even strengthening the roots as the sebaceous glands in the scalp produce sebum, so by brushing your hair, the oil moves from root to tip creating a natural protective oil and conditioner. But be warned, not all hairbrushes are created equal. The Tangle Teezers range is not only made for keeping your hair tangle-free, but it offers a range of brushes for different hair types all designed to leave your hair soft and knot-free. The unique and ergonomic shape of the Tangle Teezer means it fits in your hand perfectly and glides through the hair without pulling, yanking or snagging.
Just because you’ve shorter hair, doesn’t mean you don’t have to protect it from the effects of heat. In fact, adding a heat protectant before blow drying, straightening, or curling short hair can help reduce the risk of breakage and split ends. We recommend the Leyton House Heat Protect Spray – this little beauty has a formula that not only keeps unwanted frizz at bay, but it prevents breakage and is perfect for any hair type.
Another thing you can invest in are the salon quality styling tools. The Babyliss Keratin Lustre Dryer is designed to protect your hair from the damaging effects of dryer heat with its specially designed keratin-infused ceramic, which fills in the gaps in each hair shaft, making your hair smoother, sleeker, and easier to style. Or if you’re in pursuit of the perfect beachy waves, the Babyliss Tongs are one of the most raved about styling tools and are perfect for creating soft lustrous curls. With a built-in ceramic barrel and heat ready indicator system, you can create waves that are smooth and shiny every time.
Pamper Hair with a Nourishing Mask
Having short hair may take a lot of the hassle out of getting ready in the morning, but there’s nothing wrong with giving your hair a pamper once in a while to help prevent or stop damage. From colouring/bleaching hair, to using styling tools – your hair goes through it. One of the best ways to revitalise your hair is to invest some time into a hair mask once or every other week. Our top picks are the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which help to restore moisture and bring damaged hair back to life.

The Leyton House Heat Protect Spray is not only a saviour when protecting your hair before heat styling, but its breakthrough formula keeps unwanted frizz at bay, prevents hair fall and breakage, and is a wonder for all hair types.

We all like to have clean, healthy hair but sometimes over washing can do more harm than good. Shampooing everyday can seriously dry out your scalp and cause hair damage. The best way to keep your hair clean is to wash your hair every few days and if you still need a refresh use dry shampoo to absorb extra oils and not weight down the hair with excessive washing. Our favourite for a fresh fix is Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo which helps to absorb oil, refresh hair and give your hair volume.
Sometimes damage is inevitable no matter how hard you try to prevent it, but not to worry.
Hair Masks are number one when it comes to battling damage and promoting healthy hair. A moisturising hair mask can not only help to condition and help with shine, but it can reverse some of the damage done to the ends of your hair where the first signs of damage shows (you know, those dreaded split ends!). Our personal favourite for damage repair are the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which helps to restore moisture and bring damaged hair back to its healthy state. Choose from either Recover, Fiberstrong, or Hydrasource to get your tresses back to tip top condition.
Whenever you are brushing your hair be careful to not put strain on your hair strands and rip the hair from the scalp. Start in small sections, working from the ends of the hair to detangle and reduce breakage. The Tangle Teezers range are made for keeping your locks tangle free. They offer a range of brushes for different hair types all aimed at leaving your hair soft and knot free without the snagging which makes detangling easy and less painful. The unique and ergonomic shape of the Tangle Teezer fits in your hand perfectly to help glide through the hair with no pulling or yanking – leaving your hair smooth and damage free.
