Latest Hair Care Trends and Expert Tips
Looking for ways to improve how you care for your hair? To give you some inspiration, Evalectric has gathered together some of the latest hair care trends to point the way when it comes to the steps that you need to take to achieve a mane that looks full, thick, and glossy.
Antioxidants For the Hair
‘Skinification’ has been one of the top hair care trends for the past few seasons. Not familiar with it? It involves taking the focus on skincare and applying that to the hair. This is why those same ingredients that you’ve been using in your skincare products are now increasingly being used in hair care formulas too, with antioxidants being one of them.
When it comes to the skin, antioxidants are revered for how they repair the look of free radical damage, giving the skin a healthier-looking finish. Well, the same applies to your hair too. Studies have found that when shampoos and conditioners are infused with antioxidants, those products not only counter the visible damage caused by pollution and other environmental factors, but also leave the hair looking fuller and less frizzy, along with feeling less brittle.
This is why you’ll find antioxidants in the Evalectric Moisturizing Shampoo and Moisturizing Conditioner. Both products contain argan oil, which has been shown to be rich in a vast array of antioxidants. Add these products to your hair care routine regularly and you’ll soon start to see some big improvements in the appearance of your locks!
Embracing Natural Hair
This is another one of the hair care trends on this list that has been around for a while, yet shows no signs of going anywhere; embracing natural hair.
For many years, those with curly and coily hair have tried to fight against their natural texture. Between daily heat styling that scorches and fries the hair and chemical treatments that cause long-term harm, this battle against natural texture has led to people experiencing some serious hair damage.
However, thanks to the evolution of hair care trends, those days are now in the past. More and more people are learning to embrace their natural hair, allowing those gorgeous curls to shine.
If you’ve struggled to do this because of how unruly and frizzy your hair can be, the secret is to find a hair serum that can smooth down the look of your strands while helping to define each individual curl. That’s exactly what the Evalectric Hair Serum does. It’s a non-greasy formula infused with the hydrating properties of aloe vera leaf extract and the moisturizing capabilities of vitamin E. Together, they’ll leave your hair feeling softer, silkier, and so much easier to manage!
Quality Over Quantity
As mentioned earlier, hair care trends are often inspired by skincare trends, and this one is no exception. For the past couple of years, people have been trying to cut back their skincare routines. Fewer people are now following complicated regimens that involve 10-15 steps and take a good half hour to carry out. Instead, they’re now going back to basics, choosing to use just a few high-quality products rather than several lower-quality products.
The same is happening in the hair care world too. People are now looking for ways in which they can simplify their hair care routines and, as a result, are willing to spend more on premium hair care products. Premium hair care sales have been on the rise because of this, and experts predict that this is a trend that’s going to continue soaring in the near future.
Sustainability and Ingredient Transparency
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the hair care trends we’re featuring is sustainability. After all, this has become a buzzword across just about every single industry. Consumers are now looking for full transparency in the products that they buy, in a way that’s so much more in-depth than what they were previously seeking.
Take ingredients as an example. Products containing clean and sustainable ingredients have been in demand for a while now. The same applies to products and ingredients that haven’t been tested on animals, just like Evalectric’s offerings.
However, that’s no longer enough. Consumers also want to know more about where those ingredients were sourced, how they were harvested, and how they were transported. After all, there’s no point investing in supposedly sustainable ingredients that still damage the environment when it comes to harvesting and transportation methods. Instead, they want full sustainability all around, and this is something that hair care products now need to cater to.
Damage-Free Heat Styling
Heated styling tools have earned themselves a bad rep over the years. People have experienced so much hair damage from them. From dry and brittle strands to color changes and hair loss, there’s no denying the many ways in which intense heat can harm the hair.
With that said, people don’t want to completely shun their heated styling tools. They provide a fun way to get creative with hair, enabling people to drastically transform their appearance.
This is why the industry has responded with heated styling tools that cause minimal damage. The Evalectric Deep Purple Classic Styler is one of these tools. It comes with 100% ceramic plates, with ceramic being the gentlest of plate materials. Its negative ion and far infrared technology contribute to minimal damage too by heating the hair in a safe way. This flat iron also has an adjustable temperature control, which is vital if you want to reduce visible damage. With this, you’ll be able to adjust the heat that’s emitted to suit your hair type, rather than scorching your strands with a single temperature that’s too hot for your hair.
Technology has been making its way into just about every aspect of the beauty industry, including hair care. There are now so many high-tech hair care products out there. Each one is designed to bring out the best of your locks.
Scalp steamers and exfoliation brushes are two products that are gaining in popularity. However, they haven’t quite made their mark yet in the same way that high-tech blow dryers have. These tools enable people to dry their hair faster while also offering a number of other benefits. Many models now come with LED technology, along with a variety of other features that can give your tresses the healthy shine that they deserve.
Every season sees a new hair care ingredient make headlines, with rosemary oil being the ‘it’ ingredient of the moment. This is currently one of the biggest ingredient-led hair care trends, with the #rosemaryoil hashtag on social media receiving hundreds of millions of views.
What’s so special about rosemary oil? Some studies have found that it can help the hair to look thicker and longer while preventing the appearance of thinning. It soothes the feeling of scalp itching and irritation too, leaving the scalp feeling healthier.
Because of this surge in popularity, many hair care brands are now producing rosemary oil-infused formulas. The oil can be used on its own too, although you’ll need to dilute it with a carrier oil before applying it to your locks. Either way, this must-have ingredient could make a huge difference to your tresses!
There is a fantastic variety of hair care trends out there at the moment, and many of them focus on the scalp. This isn’t anything new as scalp care has been a big focus for the past few seasons. A healthy scalp contributes to healthy-looking hair, making it no surprise that people are now choosing to turn to their roots as a way to nurture their locks.
One way to care for your scalp is by exfoliating it. After all, the scalp consists of skin. You probably already regularly exfoliate the skin on your face and body, and now your scalp can be receiving the same TLC too.
Scalp scrubs have already had their moment, and scalp peels are now the exfoliator of choice. These contain a mix of hydroxy acids that remove dead skin cells, product buildup, and other impurities from the scalp. This then prevents hair follicles from getting blocked. As a result, the hair is able to grow in the way that it should and bumps caused by ingrown hairs won’t be such a problem.
Scalp stimulation is another one of the scalp-focused hair care trends that are attracting a lot of attention at the moment. In the same way that a face or body massage can help to boost circulation and give your complexion a lift, scalp stimulation pampers the skin on the scalp, encouraging those cells to thrive.
What does scalp stimulation involve? At a basic level, a scalp massage will do the job. However, if you want to take things a step further, you could consider purchasing a derma roller for your scalp. Also known as microneedling, this process involves rolling a needled device over your scalp. It’s a great way to boost circulation and leave the hair follicles feeling supported.
While you can go ahead and use your facial derma roller on your scalp, many prefer to purchase a scalp-specific model instead. There aren’t any major differences between these and facial derma rollers, apart from the shape of the handle. These enable you to easily reach all areas of your scalp, which you may struggle to do with a facial derma roller.
Overnight Scalp Serums
Finally, let’s talk about scalp serums. They’re nothing new – they’ve been around for a while. However, many of the early formulas required people to wash them off the scalp after a while.
Things have changed and there are now a number of overnight scalp serums to choose from. The fact that these products remain on the scalp for an extended period of time enables them to work more efficiently. They produce bigger and better results, along with a healthier-feeling scalp to boot!
