Investing in a hair and scalp care routine that works for you can go a long way in keeping your locks luscious in the long run, while saving you dollars from regular salon treatments. For the ultimate home hair and scalp ritual, here are the newest and best hair and scalp treatments to buy at Sephora right now!

1. Briogeo Superfoods Mango + Cherry Oil Control & Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner, S$43 

Briogeo Superfoods Mango + Cherry Superfoods Hair Pack

Maintaining a clean scalp promotes overall stronger hair. A big tip: keep your hair care products The shower sulphate-free and silicone-free. Sulphates in shampoos have a bad reputation and here’s why: when I think sulphates, I think about what goes into household cleaning products. Which for obvious reasons, shouldn’t go anywhere near our scalps! Sulphates can strip away natural oils from the scalp and hair, turning your hair dry and brittle. It can be especially awful for sensitive scalps and cause further irritation, redness and dryness. 

Briogeo’s Superfoods Mango + Cherry Oil Control & Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner will be your new sulphate-free and silicone-free hair saviours. Packed with antioxidant-rich fruits, vitamins, and nutrients, this dynamic duo maintains your hair’s natural moisture while strengthening hair follicles. Bonus: If you love dyeing your hair, this duo is less likely to strip coloured hair. The absence of sulphates helps to better maintain your dye!
