3. TRESemmé Oil Elixir
If you often balk at the price of salon-quality products then you will love this new Oil Elixir from TRESemmé. It’s priced at just R120 and is great for adding the life back into colour-treated hair. The oil absorbs into the hair quite rapidly and leaves hair feeling soft and smooth.
We got the chance to review this product first hand and felt it was a fantastic budget-friendly option for ladies who don’t want to break the R150 price point. “You can always trust TRESemmé to produce salon-quality products at super competitive price points,” said Crystal. “I loved this product because it was lightweight and incredibly nourishing for my curly locks.

4. Dove Pure Dry Oil
Dove isn’t just in the soap game, they’re also playing in the haircare arena! The new Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Restorative Treatment with Anatolian Pomegranate Seed Oil is a great lightweight, non-greasy oil for ladies who want hair that shines all day long. It also helps to protect your hair from the damaging stress caused by blow-drying and styling! The oil can be used on clean, damp hair or dry tresses that need a bit of a pick-me-up.
Crystal loved trying this product and found that it was best when using it mostly on the ends of her hair. “Dove’s new dry oil is great for treating split ends when your hair is wet as well as for beating frizz, static and flyaways post-blowout!” said Crystal. “Just make sure you only use about half a drop when applying to dry hair or it can make your hair look a little greasy!”
Available from selected retailers nationwide at R180.
5. Kerastase Touche Finale
Kérastase Touche Finale is a high-shine polishing serum that perfects the hair with touchable softness and luminosity. This clever little serum illuminates lengths and has a fabulous anti-frizz action. Apply the serum to blow-dried hair, strand by strand or on lengths for shiny, show-stopping hair!
This tiny little bombshell takes pride of place on Crystal’s dressing table! “This is another one of my favourite post-blowout serums,” says Crystal. It works like a bomb and leaves my hair super soft and shiny. I love to carry this in my handbag to treat windswept hair (especially in Cape Town!)”
