When it comes to healthy, glossy hair it is important to pay attention to your scalp needs as well as your hair needs.

The Bondi Beauty team have road-tested four amazing new products that have visibly changed our hair for the better.

From product build up to dandruff, there are a multitude of hair shampoos and conditioners that target scalp issues.

And given the fact that hair grows from the scalp, it is possibly the most important area to look after.

We have chosen our top four new scalp care products, to help our hair grow faster, longer, thicker and even glossier.  

Each of the products below have been road-tested for two weeks or more to get an accurate measure of the results.

Kristen Ess Scalp Detoxifying Bubble Mask RRP: $24.99

This hair mask is a lot of fun to use, and has to be used on dry hair (and dry scalp) before you jump in the shower and shampoo and condition your hair.

It promises to cool, exfoliate and reface flaking on the scalp, as well as re-balance and re-moisturise.

Before showering, I shook the can hard then pushed a golf ball sized amount of mousse into my hands and applied it to the scalp.

I then massaged my head with a plastic massage comb and the mask started to bubble.

If you have ever tried a charcoal bubble face mask, the effect is similar but, on the scalp, and the bubbles last about 2-3 minutes.

My hair felt fresh and smelt gorgeous after using this mask.

I am having a lot of trouble with thin hair, so this is working excellently for me.

John Frieda’s new detox and repair range of shampoo and conditioner has a transformational formula that helps cleanse the scalp and remove impurities from product build up.

They have based their shampoo and conditioner recipe around antioxidant-rich ingredients such as avocado oil and green tea, in order to leave hair and scalp feeling rejuvenated and healthy.

As someone who is always trialling new hair products, I was excited to see how the John Frieda Detox & Repair range would help to detoxify my scalp from constant product use.

The simple dark green packaging of this range is easy on the eyes and the fruity fragrance is heavenly to say the least. 

A little of both the shampoo and conditioner goes a long way as the combination of avocado oil and green tea lather up nicely on the scalp region. 

After trialling both the shampoo and conditioner for a couple of weeks, I noticed my scalp looked purified, not to mention my hair was extremely shiny and strong.   

I would recommend these products for stressed, dry hair that is in dire need of re-invigoration. 

Herbal Essences Deep Sea Minerals $11.99 each

Herbal Essences has brought out a clarifying deep sea minerals shampoo and conditioner as a part of their bio:renew collection. 

All products from this range are 90% naturally-derived and have been formulated under the direction of the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew, Victoria – a world first organisation that studies botanicals and plant science.

The focus of the new products is to restore balance to the scalp and bring damaged, lack-lustre hair back to life.

As someone who has wavy hair, I tend to look for shampoo and conditioner that are free from parabens and sulfates so my hair isn’t left feeling dehydrated.

The scent of this shampoo and conditioner is extremely refreshing on the scalp and hair and the hero ingredients; sea kelp, antioxidants and aloe, left my hair feeling noticeably softer and lighter in weight.

Another result that was particularly noticeable after using the products for a few weeks, was that my scalp felt free of any product build up but not in a way where it felt stripped back.

These products are best used for cleansing the scalp of impurities and restoring life back into the hair. 

Head and Shoulders Purify and Volume $14.99 each

This brand-new Head and Shoulder shampoo and conditioner duo is the ultimate hair repair product for sufferers of dandruff.  

For dry and flaky scalps, these products work to nourish the hair and condition the scalp in order to reduce dandruff over time.

With 0% sulfates, colourants and parabens, your hair will be left feeling healthier.

The Head and Shoulder’s formula has a distinct, flowery scent and is filled with several popular ingredients including vitamin A, vitamin E and argan oil to soften the follicles from the tips to the roots, and nourish the scalp.

In trialling this shampoo and conditioner I found that after one wash, when left to air-dry, my hair was thicker and more luscious in appearance due to the volumising technology of the products. 

I would recommend the Head and Shoulders Purify and Volume shampoo and conditioner range to people with dandruff issues, scalp issues or who struggle with flat, uninspired hair.
