Haircare results often take time, but we’re an impatient bunch and therefore have a lot of love for the products that work their magic instantaneously.

Sweaty gym hair? There’s a spray to make it look like it’s wash day. Feeling flat? You can get a lift without any heat tools. Frizz taking over? Just a few drops is all it takes to beat humidity. Here, our Beauty Board share their favourite tricks and treatments for instant hair transformations. So efficient, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them!

For serious hydration – and a heavenly scent

Beauty products that serve more than one function will always have a welcome place in our routines, and the Gisou Honey Infused Leave-In Conditioner is the ultimate multitasking hair product, says Giorgi, MECCA’s Skincare Education Manager. “If you're looking for hydration or a light hold for hair, this is the perfect addition to your hair routine,” she reveals, adding, “I love the light, understated honey scent and the clever leak-proof packaging means it's perfect for keeping in my handbag for when humidity is making a day of my curls.”

When you’re freaking out over frizz

If you have curly hair but don’t want any of the frizz (who does?) Shivan, MECCA’s Digital eCommerce Analyst, believes there’s one product you cannot live without: Living Proof’s No Frizz Vanishing Oil. “This product is my go-to for keeping my hair hydrated and never frizzy!” he says. “I take a few drops, rub it in my hands, and massage it into my hair and scalp. I love how fast absorbing it is – it never leaves my hair sticky.” The inclusion of amaranth seed extract helps replenish lipids and block humidity to provide frizz protection like no other.

The hack for sweaty post-gym hair

Ever skipped the gym because you know you won’t have time to wash your hair? Well, there’s a solution for that – Bumble and bumble Pret-a-Powder Post Workout Dry Shampoo Mist. And, it really works, says Hannah, MECCA’s Makeup Education Manager. “This product is an absolute lifesaver. In those times where you have gone to the gym and worked up a sweat but already have clean hair or no time to re-wash this little gem saves the day.” To use, mist into hair, wait 30 seconds and comb through with fingers. “I like to give my hair a quick blast with the hairdryer on a cool setting,” she adds. The spray absorbs sweat and oil while giving the hair extra volume and texture.

Protect your hair from the elements

We all slather our faces and bodies in sunscreen – especially during warmer months – but often neglect to protect our hair from the heat of the sun (yet wonder why it’s forever brittle and dry). For this (and more), Sangeetha, MECCA’s Education Lead – Fragrance, Hair and Body, recommends the Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer. “This iconic leave-in treatment is a MECCA favourite for good reason! Featuring six nourishing oils, it works to hydrate and soften hair while also protecting it from heat damage and colour fade,” she explains. “I love to spray it through my mid-lengths and ends between washes to instantly refresh, add moisture and keep my hair protected at all times.”
