Haircare advice: Spring brings a focus on hydration in skincare, with a host of new launches dressed in blue, to emphasise the fact. And haircare now increasingly looks like skincare. The whole “skinification of hair” trend is fine, to a point – it makes sense to take care of the skin on our scalp as well as our face, and to find a routine that works for us. But it can also translate to “use a ton more products”. The average woman uses more than six products on her hair, according to a Kérastase survey. Gone are the days of Wash & Go, a shampoo and conditioner in one.

As with skin, more is not necessarily better. If you’re having issues, such as dull hair or a flaky scalp, layering on numerous care and styling products may not be helping. And we tend to apply hair masks too heavily, too often, and for too long; hairdressers are warning against lashing on one feted mask every time you wash your hair because it’s so concentrated and is – ironically – causing brittle hair. Instructions are often printed horribly small, but do follow them.

Kérastase focuses on reducing damage with its new Premiere range, designed to decalcify and strengthen hair. Sinead Asple has launched Sea+Solu with a vegan, siliconefree moisture mask (€33.95), plus optional “boosters” designed to strengthen, hydrate or volumise ( Act+Acre (now at Brown Thomas), founded by a trichologist, has an extensive, good-looking offering; keep to the gentle shampoo and conditioner for a simple approach. The new haircare line by Irish-owned Luna (from €14) is also hydrating, and designed to improve hair strength. Focus on damage limitation and hair health, rather than fads. @sarahhalliwellbeauty
