Over the past few weeks, we’ve found ourselves in lockdown 2.0, vowing that this time, we would learn from the mistakes made earlier this year. Nope, this time we are not letting ourselves go, only to crawl back to salons as soon as they’ve reopened, begging for help. We cannot go back to those days. Besides, there are plenty of products which will look after your locks at home, ensuring that you feel like yourself, no matter what madness is going on in the world.
This month, VIP has teamed with one of the world’s leading haircare brand’s, John Frieda, which has options for every hair type and colour possible. We’ve picked out the best buys to treat your locks from John Frieda, which you can find online and in-store. Available from Dunnes Stores nationwide and available online from McCauley Health and Beauty www.mccauley.ie.
For brassy blondes
The Violet Crush Shampoo and Conditioner (€7.49)
Transform your blonde from brassy to cool blonde with this daily purple shampoo and conditioner. A crushed violet pigment gradually neutralises unwanted yellow tones without over-toning to restore bright blonde between salon visits. Safe for use on natural and colour-treated blonde, the formula is peroxide free and ammonia-free.
For curly girls
Dream Curls Shampoo and Deep Conditioner (€7.49)
Aimed at wavy-curly hair types and all frizz levels, this duo is the first step for smooth curls. The Dream Curls shampoo, formulated with nourishing yet lightweight Abyssinian oil, hydrates while it cleanses to help define and enhance your natural curls. Safe for colour-treated hair and chemically-treated hair, it is best paired with the award-winning Dream Curls Deep Conditioner, which gives your curls the moisture they deserve – and then some! Use weekly as a masque, to nourish and detangle your curls for improved manageability, softness and shine.

Featuring a blend of panthenol and frizz-reducing conditioners, this excellent mousse restores elasticity for springy curls that bounce back. Its non-sticky, alcohol free formula also contains a UV filter to protect your locks.
For chronic frizz
Extra Strength Serum (€7.49)
Suffer with chronic frizz? Try a few pumps of this and watch your hair turn silky-smooth. Expertly formulated with a unique blend of silicones that seal in moisture, and enriched with silk proteins and algae extract, the serum conditions dehydrated hair for more manageable and silky-smooth results, and it also repels humidity, while providing heat protection.
In need of repair
