Gisou Polishing Primer

Prep, prime and define: that’s the mantra of this hair primer from Gisou. Its unique formula is infused with a resin-like material called Mirsalehi propolis, which is produced by the bees in founder Negin Mirsalehi’s family garden to build strong hives — how amazing is that? Once applied, this primer helps to naturally strengthen your strands, enhance texture and ensure you’re left with workable hold for heat styling. Apply a pea-sized amount through dry hair before styling to prevent frizz and to maximise volume — it can also be applied to damp hair before a blow-dry for a little extra bounce and body.

Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray

Fake fuller-looking hair with this popular pre-styling spray from Bumble and bumble. Its lightweight formula does all the heavy lifting when it comes to building volume and thicker-looking strands. Ingredients like wheat protein and lanolin help to nourish and add movement, along with a healthy, glossy finish. Spritz on damp hair before your next blowout and experience the magic.

Living Proof Full Shampoo

This gentle, yet thoroughly cleansing, shampoo primes hair for maximum fullness by removing residue and product build-up. A gentle surfactant blend preps hair without sulphates or silicones, leaving it fresh, clean and fuller-looking. Reach for this if you have fine or flat hair — and pair it with its partner-in-prime, the Living Proof Full Conditioner: it’s lightweight and helps detangle, smooth and add shine, sans silicones.
