Treat yourself to a post-party hair rescue...

Hot tools, knotty upstyles and brash backcombing can leave your post-party hair limp, lifeless and lacking lustre.

Your scalp can also suffer with product build up and sensitivity. Fear k(not) though help is at hand no matter what your hair type or budget. Hair masques are best used on the mid lengths and ends to give you that healthy bounce without weight near the crown.

Annutri Scalp Oil

Hair oiling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that involves massaging nourishing oils into the hair and scalp. It has been used for centuries to promote scalp and hair health, delivering vital vitamins and minerals directly into the roots, stimulating blood flow to promote growth and reduce hair loss; alleviating irritated, dry and flaky scalps and clearing away dirt and oil blockages in the process. Award-winning haircare, skincare and supplement brand Annutri have recently launched Grow It Scalp Oil, a formulation infused with active, natural ingredients, made right here in Ireland. It contains a powerful blend of five Ayurvedic oils with nutrient-dense seaweed extract, which contains an abundance of growth-promoting zinc and vitamins A and C.


For budget conscious people, Hask is at hand with an argan oil repairing conditioning treatment in a single use sachet (€3.99). As my hair is fine, I get two uses from it and it is great to pop in your hair. It’s a super strengthening, hydrating treatment that will restore and smooth dry, damaged, chemically treated or over processed hair. It contains argan oil, unique to Morocco, which is known for its high absorbing, penetrating and split end repairing qualities. It leaves even the most damaged hair soft and nourished with added moisture.

It’s safe for colour-treated and chemically treated hair. With added heat and humidity protection and argan, coconut and moringa oil. It also adds shine.

The Afterglow Hair Mask (€26.95) is enriched with premium oils and proteins that nourish and dramatically enhance hair condition, creating ultra glossy, soft and healthy hair. Again another great smelling product that is weightless. I recently used this on my hair after a weekend of heavy styling and products.
