10 anti-pollution hair care essentials
Pollution is unavoidable, and unfortunately, it’s everywhere. Thankfully, beauty companies have started taking note and created some of the most hydrating, protective and pollution-fighting hair products on the market.
Looking for a great all-around anti-pollution brand? Check out Noughty’s line of protective shampoos, conditioners and balms. With a specific range for each hair type and condition, there’s truly something for everyone. Follow it up with a dose of Pureology’s shine-enhancing taming serum for double protection and extra smoothness.
If you need a more powerful treatment to banish those years of London smog, try Lush’s H’suan Wen Hua protein treatment, which simultaneously nourishes your locks while purifying your scalp with bay leaf, watercress, rosemary oil and more.
For a great all-around treatment, start with Vichy Dercos’ hypoallergenic detox shampoo to wash away irritants, and then bring a bit of zest into your routine with Klorane’s mint-infused anti-pollution conditioner. The sustainably-sourced formula deeply cleanses the scalp of excess oil and pollution, leaving you with the silky hair of your dreams. If you’re feeling fancy, add on Briogeo’s deep conditioning mask to restore hydration and shield against future damage.
Sometimes, the workday is hectic, and you need a little pick-me-up—for a midday refresh, try the handbag-friendly blue ginger dry shampoo from Herbal Essences. Follow it up with a few drops of Oribe’s hydrating “Anti-Pollution Booster” to help build up natural keratin for even more protection.
If your hair is already damaged, try Kerastase’s leave-in hair oil before doing any styling. It protects split ends, smooths away frizz and acts as a barrier against further pollution. Follow it up with either Sukin’s natural balance shampoo, which uses baobab oil and a gentle formula to cleanse and soothe the scalp.
