Late last year I was introduced to the Richard Ward hair care range and have been a total convert ever since.  Richard, royal and celeb favourite nonetheless, is the brains behind the extremely successful Chelsea Collection styling products. To my utter delight January has seen the launch of some new additions to the range:

Anti – Ageing Argan Hairspray,


Like much of the Chelsea range this hairspray is luxurious yet still manages to remain lightweight on the hair.  The combination of hero ingredient Argan Oil, known for it’s healing and rejuvenating properties, and Olea leaf, known to restore luster and shine, work perfectly to boost hairs health and manageability. The added bonus of essential oils means it not only moisturizes hair, it smells delicious too!

This hairspray is lightweight, ultra soft and creates a natural looking, effortless, flexible finish.  Use as a finishing touch to hold any party hairstyle, or simply day to day for a polished look.  I cannot get enough!

Keratin+1 day dry shampoo


This Keratin infused treat not only revitalizes and re- energizes hair, it also cleanses your locks leaving them refreshed and re- invigorated.

Keratin, hairs natural protein, has long been a favorite for those seeking a healthy mane.  Unlike some other dry shampoo brands, used correctly you will find no greying, chalky residue and thanks to fragrant notes of amber, white jasmine, grapefruit and pear, your hair will smell fabulous.

This product is a total must for those who want to extend their blow dry by +1 day, find that come mid afternoon their hair is looking a little lack luster or simply want to go from desk to dance floor.  Be warned; once you have tried this product you will never go back and may find it harder to stay home mid week!

Keratin Sine Vitamin Boost


This revolutionary handbag essential is designed to give you back the healthy shine that repeated styling and daily pollution often destroys.

The key ingredient, Keratin miraculously binds and interacts to rebuild hairs natural fibers. Combined with vitamins A, B5 and E hair is treated to its own ‘5 a day’ with every use.  As with all of the range, this product has a beautiful subtle fragrance.

In contrast to many finishing serums, Richard Wards Shine boost is lightweight and non greasy. Spritzed over styled hair as a finishing touch, this product left my hair looking glossy and expensive.

These products are available from January 2015.  Richard Ward products are sold exclusively at Waitrose stores nationwide.
