Best Hair Care Of 2021

Which products have caught our eye this year? Enter the world of the best hair care that will transform your mane as if by magic. Finding the best hair care takes a lot of testing and deliberation in front of the mirror, with your friends and your hairdresser. But you should also trust your feelings and remind yourself that you’ve had fewer bad hair days this year than the year before!


Trust the masters

Apart from quality and natural ingredients, I’m also looking for hair care with an interesting design, scent, and from a manufacturer who knows what they’re doing. At least generally. And believe me – the biggest icons of the hair care world know their job extremely well. 

From Dior to shea butter

I’m not really a snob when it comes to cosmetics. While I might be a big fan of Chanel (foundations) and Dior (fragrances), I also appreciate a handy solid shampoo bar or even a bit of simple shea butter on my lips – after all, they’re practical and natural.

Best quality hair care of 2021: TOP PRODUCTS

Whether you’re on a lookout for the best shampoo, conditioner or hair mask, you might find some inspiration in our top  picks. Drumroll please... here are the winners:

  1. My hair is usually anything but smooth and sleek. Luckily, I’ve discovered the L’Oréal Paris Elseve Dream Long Wonder Water conditioner with an innovative formula featuring a lamellar technology which creates a protective film and instantly clings to the hair shaft. It repairs, nourishes and optimally hydrates your hair from the first use, which is something I consider a true miracle (and not just a Christmas one). I also love that it’s silicone-free.
  2. Another favourite is the Morrocanoil Treatment for all hair types. It contains my beloved argan oil which hydrates and nourishes my tresses, not to mention it seals my split ends and leaves my hair naturally glossy and velvety smooth to the touch. In short, my hair absolutely adores it.
  3. Next one on my list of faves is the Alfaparf Milano Semi di Lino Reconstruction Shampoo for Damaged Hair. This product “repairs” my hair while taking care of my blonde colour to make it last longer even in cold winter weather thanks to an innovative blend of UVA and UVB filters and antioxidants.
  4. And while we’re talking about colour treated hair – obviously I’d much rather have it be a cool, icy blonde than a yellowish mess, and that can be hard to achieve. This is why I completely swear by the Schwarzkopf Professional Blondme Cool Blondes nourishing mask which neutralises yellow undertones. It also fortifies and regenerates the structure of the hair shaft and contains a protein complex from Amaranthus caudatus that keeps my hair smooth and my scalp clean.
  5. Whether your hair is blonde, red or brown, Wella Professionals products including the Color Fresh and ColorMotion+ masks will keep it bright. They protect, strengthen and regenerate my hair, leaving it smooth, glossy and perfectly nourished. Wella is one of those brands you can always rely on – trust me, I’ve been using their products since the 1990s.
  6. Speaking of which – Kérastase is another trusted brand I can recommend. Their Specifique Argile Équilibrante mineral cleansing clay mask is truly a little marvel, because it gives my hair volume, cleans it thoroughly and detoxifies my scalp in one step. The clay makes my hair nice and clean while the menthol adds some freshness with an energising scent, even on a winter Monday morning.
  7. I also use the Blond Absolu Sérum Cicanuit serum for blonde hair from the same brand. In fact, I’m a big fan of this line in general. My favourite part is that it works during the night and handles all the problems I experience with my brittle, lightened, breaking hair. This serum heals, smooths, regenerates, hydrates and protects my hair from harmful factors. It really does everything that blonde hair needs.
  8. The name of the Redken Oil for All gives you a clear idea of what the product is. This nourishing oil for all hair types is gentle enough for my hair which is normally quite sensitive to oils. The Redken product is very light and tender, and leaves my hair smooth and easier to style which I’m especially grateful for in the morning.
  9. As you’ve probably noticed, my hair care is all about colour. If you’re in a similar situation, I recommend the L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Metal Detox mask. This nourishing product has a special power: It protects your hair from the deposits of metal particles after any colouring, lightening or balayage. It keeps my hair healthy, strong, nourished, glossy and soft to the touch.
  10. Even though I know I shouldn’t, occasionally I have to blow-dry my hair (particularly in winter). This is when I reach for my Serie Expert Blow-dry Fluidifier protective cream, also from L'Oréal Professionnel. This product protects my hair and prevents frizz thanks to plant-based proteins. It’s great for all hair types and offers protection up to 230 °C.
