A "less is more" aesthetic can be applied to every aspect of your life, or just a few. Whether you’re already pairing back your makeup application, revamping your wellness routine, or aiming for an “undone done” hairstyle— this season, styles everywhere are proving that minimal hair routines can still achieve maximum impact when it comes to your finished look.
How To Create a Minimal Hair Routine
Making a few small changes to your hair routine can make a big impact on your style. Things like adding a hair detox, investing in colour protection, or air-drying all fall under a low-maintenance routine, but can greatly improve all aspects of your look, here’s why.
Similar to the way you might scale back makeup and increase skincare, focusing on the health of your hair is the easiest and most effective way to start any routine.
Start with a Detox
If your hair has been feeling a bit lackluster lately, you’d be surprised at how much swapping out your go-to shampoo and conditioner or looking at the health of your scalp can change things. Whenever your style is falling flat, start by addressing the state of your scalp.
As the seasons change from the warm of summer to the cool of fall and dry of winter, your scalp probably needs some extra love and care. By adding an exfoliating scalp SCRUB, nourishing SERUM, or foaming TREATMENT to your pre and post-shower routine, you can look after the skin underneath your strands to ensure a healthier, soothed, and nourished scalp and therefore shinier, balanced, and refreshed strands.
Protect Your Hair Colour at all Costs
Whether you regularly touch up your roots, have added highlights to your routine or simply a GLOSS to give your natural hair colour extra shine, protecting your hair colour with bond-building benefits is essential to creating a healthy, lit-from-within glow.
Add a single product or invest in the entire line, colour protection is a non-negotiable for anyone who colours their hair. This is because adding a few key products to your routine will help protect against colour fade, increase strength and elongate shine between appointments.
For a healthy dose of protection, EVERLASTING.COLOUR TREATMENT is a restorative treatment that will build bonds, protect against colour fade, and add shine. So whether your strands are feeling frazzled from the winter weather, or you need a pick-me-up as you head into spring, this leave-on treatment is a quick and minimal-effort product that can reap big rewards.
If daily maintenance is more your vibe, pick up EVERLASTING.COLOUR WASH + RINSE and add the LEAVE-IN anytime you shampoo and condition. This system contains pH sealing technology to improve the state of your cuticle to lock in shine and protect your strands for a hydrated, repaired finish.
Minimal Styling for Maximum Effect
Part of a “minimal” styling routine means working with your natural texture, not against it. From finding easier methods to smooth it, or carefree ways to embrace your curl, no matter what your finished style, adding a few stylers to your beauty cabinet ensures a streamlined routine.
When you want to blow-dry, a mix of HEATED.DEFENSE layered with one of the EVERs is the easiest way to speed up your blow-dry and enjoy a gorgeously smooth finish for days. HEATED.DEFENSE is a lightweight treatment that smooths and detangles the hair while protecting against heat damage.
The EVERs — EVER.SMOOTH, EVER.LIFT, EVER.THICKEN, and EVER.BOUNCE — are targeted blow-dry sprays that add smoothness, lift, bounce, or a thickened feel. In addition to this, they also contain heat-activated ingredients to extend your style and protect against frizz, leaving you with an amazing style day after day.
To embrace natural texture, mastering the perfect air-dry is key. Not only does this cut down on time and effort, but it allows you to enjoy your natural texture and give it a much-needed break from hot tools.
On days when you’ll air-dry, start by swapping out your shampoo and conditioner for KILLER.CURLS WASH + RINSE. This duo nourishes natural texture patterns with Oat Milk to smooth the cuticle and lock in moisture.
From here, choose your air-dry product based on your hair type and texture. KILLER.TWIRLS is the go-to pick to enhance, define, and hydrate your curls. Or choose from KILLER.CURLS, KILLER.WAVES, MOTION.LOTION or EASY.RIDER to enhance, refine, and deliver a frizz-free finish.
