Luxury haircare is a worthy addition to any haircare regimen. Not only do these high-end end products lend a little cachet to your shower, they do wonders for your hair. Read on to see why you need luxury haircare in your life and which luxe lines you should consider for levelling up your haircare game.
Why Should You Try Luxury Haircare
Luxury haircare is more than just “hair soap in a fancy bottle”. These beautiful products command a hefty price because:
- They are usually made with a higher amount of better quality ingredients;
- Their formulations contain exotic and hard-to-find ingredients;
- They are often guaranteed by trained professionals;
- They offer proven results;
- They tend to be more targeted to your haircare needs;
- They are more likely to contain ingredients of natural origin;
- They are less likely to contain filler ingredients and high concentrations of water (watering down the effect of the product); and
- They often have great signature scents due to these brands partnering with high-end perfume houses.
Top Luxury Haircare Picks
This anti-frizz oil serum saved my hair after I suffered from protein overload.
Add 1-2 pumps of this oil serum to your damp hair after washing and proceed with styling. It boosts shine, definitely smooths your hair boosting shine, making it more manageable and easier to style. This definitely helped tone down any frizz during the humid weather and I found that it was a great heat-protectant.
Lastly – it doesn’t weigh down hair, yet acts as a solid moisturizer (which is pretty novel for oil-based serums (oils usually work to seal moisture into hair).
- Coconut Oil: good for hydration
- Rosa Cantina Fruit Oil: antioxidant (protects hair from environmental stressors
- Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil: Rich in Omega 3-6-9 which are solid emollients (softens hair)
Reach for this nourishing oil to boost shine, when you need a solid overnight treatment to soften hair or apply to damp hair as a heat protectant.
This Allure Beauty Award-winner is a staple in my own haircare regimen as it is highly effective at conditioning hair and reducing frizz.
If you have dry, damaged hair due to harsh treatments (bleaching, relaxing, etc.), this will work to repair split ends and dryness.
What makes this particular luxury hair oil stand out is that it does such a great job at hydrating hair and boosting shine. Cheaper versions tend to weigh down hair and repeated use throughout the week causes hair to get dirtier faster. This oil doesn’t cause any of this.
Oribe Signature Complex (Watermelon, Lychee and Edelweiss Flower): this blend works to protect hair from dryness, sun damage and other environmental effect. It also contains keratin to repair damaged hair.

This shampoo was a gamechanger when I got serious about repairing my hair. It is thick, rich and does a wonderful job at conditioning before you even get to conditioner!
It leaves my hair incredibly soft and detangled which is key for reducing damage when combing after washing. A little also goes a long way. A small amount produces a rich and satisfying lather. You will also notice that hair is “lighter” and bouncier after styling. LOVE THIS SHAMPOO.
Oribe’s Bio-Restorative Complex: this complex includes plant collagen, caffeine and biotin. It also includes niacinamide which penetrates the hair’s root to strengthen, nourish and stimulate hair follicles.
