David Mallett Hair Care By Belinda Morris
You would imagine that an Australian-born hair stylist would know a thing or two about sun protection and beach holiday looks, and that he might also have a view on natural hair and scalp-friendly products. And so it is with David Mallett, who not only has a range of hair care and styling products, but also has his own salon in Paris – bonus.
Beloved of celebrities and super models, the formulas are free from any superfluous substances and don’t weigh down or damage the hair’s delicate structure. They’re designed to create a light and airy hair texture, using ingredients that wont irritate sensitive scalps, with scents that are carefully measured to ensure compatibility with the skin.
If you’re heading off to the sun, or just returned from it, you might be glad of Hair Serum DM027 (£50 – 50ml) which contains macademia nut oil, which contains an omega-7 fatty acid which smooths and seals the hair cuticle to preserve moisture and nutrients, so restoring dull, dehydrated hair. It can also smooth or accentuate curls.
And to give the effect of sun, seawater and ocean breeze on your hair, there’s Australian Salt Spray (£25 – 150ml) containing Murray River Salt (normally used by gourmet chefs) which is high in magnesium and calcium, whih gives texture without heaviness or stickiness, or making your hair dry.
Because no haircare line these days would be complete without something to tend to beards and moustaches, David Mallett also offers Beard Balm (£20 – 75ml). The concentrated formula, with its powerful plant protein complex, penetrates the hair fibre, supplying it with nutrients and locking-in moisture – all for a natural shine. No more unruliness and plenty of structure and definition (as well as a subtly refreshing scent).
