What are the top 5 Korean haircare products?
Pull up a chair, grab some popcorn and let’s run through the Top 5 Korean haircare products. It comes as no surprise that as much as Koreans love their Skincare routine, they’ve also got a haircare routine. They believe in nourishing their hair rather than abusing it and regular trips to the salon for hair treatments are only a small part of what they do on a day to day basis to keep their hair silky smooth. Let’s face it, everyone uses heat-styling tools and most people love to dye their hair, but it’s how you look after it and what measures you take to look after it that makes a huge difference to maintaining healthy hair.
Have you ever heard the term, you are what you eat? Surprisingly, this also applies to your hair and though many may question whether or not it’s worth it; investing in the right products that work best for your hair condition can really make a difference.
We’ve searched high and low and tested a range of haircare products and these are the ones that we believe make it onto our top 5 Korean Haircare product list.

DO WE RECOMMEND THESE PRODUCTS?
These are our top 5 Korean Haircare Products and do we recommend them? We definitely do. There’s something really convenient about being able to treat your hair in the shower while you focus on the rest of your routine. It’s important to remember however that though hair masks and treatments are great for your hair, be mindful not to overdo it. We should be incorporating a hair treatment into our routine at least once or even twice per week for those that have drier or more damaged hair.
Be mindful that some haircare products are best left off the roots, work them on the lower half of your hair leading to the ends as piling these products on the roots of your hair can sometimes leave it feeling rather greasy or weigh it down.
We recommend you give these a go and let us know how they work for you. Find one that works best for your hair and work with it. You’ll notice your hair becoming softer and shinier with each use. Thank us later 🙂
