Best Beauty Discoveries 2022 | Haircare

Last up in my best beauty discoveries of 2022 is the haircare category and I have quite a few this year! I have long brown hair with dry end and oily roots, and I really try to protect my hair as best as possible as I use heat so here are the products that have stood out to me this year! 


haircare favourites 2022

As a huge fan of the bum bum bodycare scent I had to pick up Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Joia Milky Leave In Conditioner RRP £28 when it launched earlier this year! It smells exactly like the rest of the line but it’s not overpowering at all. I love the trigger mechanism and the formula itself is thicker than I was expecting but not heavy at all. It offers heat protection up to 232˚C, frizz control and helps prevent split ends and is a huge 210ml! It’s the best detangler I have used and makes my hair so soft and smooth! See my full review here!


I finally gave in and bought the Living Proof PhD Dry Shampoo RRP £20 and let me tell you, the hype is real. This is a lot pricier than my usual budget dry shampoos, but it is the best I have tried! It leaves no white cast, absorbs easily giving me an extra day or two out of my greasy hair and actually makes it look clean. Some dry shampoos only last a few hours before my hair starts looking greasy again and I need to reapply, but this works so well and I use far less product! As well as making my hair look clean again it also gives a bit of lift which is perfect as my hair can look lank when greasy and it has a really subtle fresh scent. There is no residue and I love this so much I just bought three sets from Sephora when it was on sale!


Sticking with Living Proof, and I received their Triple Bond Complex RRP £42* at the end of summer and famous last words, but I think I prefer it as a repair treatment to Olaplex! This is a weekly treatment that you apply to damp hair after washing and leave in - it works to construct new bonds within the hair to help strengthen it as well as protect it and the look of split ends are visibly reduced. It also offers heat protection up to 232˚C to help prevent future breakage. It’s a silicone-free, serum consistency and leaves my hair feeling protected, smooth and manageable with a good shine and I have noticed my ends looking way healthier with less split ends even when my hair is overdue a trim!


I am a sucker for a scalp scrub and the Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal and Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo RRP $54* has really impressed me! As I was rubbing this into my scalp the first time I used it, I was convinced my hair was still going to be greasy and that it was not going to clean it as there is no lather (it’s sulphate free) but I couldn’t have been more wrong! The exfoliant is very fine and this made my hair look and feel the cleanest it’s ever been! My scalp, while still being oily has also been flaking on me this winter and this shampoo really refreshes and balances it without drying it out while getting rid of flakes! As well as charcoal and coconut oil, this contains peppermint, spearmint and tea tree oil to help reduce itchiness and it gives it a really light minty scent!

I love a good hair mask and the Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense Thick Hair Mask RRP £36.60* might be one of the best I have tried! It smells incredible and as it’s for thick hair it’s super concentrated so a little goes a long way in my fine hair! I like to leave it on 15-20 minutes before rinsing out and it leaves my hair soft, smooth, shiny and the ends well hydrated which makes them look so much healthier! Despite my hair not being thick, it rinses out well and doesn’t leave it feeling weighed down. It’s a huge 200ml too and is lasting me ages despite using it regularly!

Lastly, The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum RRP $15.80 has really helped the condition of my lashes and brows! Since using this, I have noticed way less fall out in both areas and they are both looking much fuller! I’ve never tried a lash/brow serum before this aside from castor oil and I don’t see myself trying any others as this is so affordable and works! You do need to be in a good routine using it every day to see results but much like the hair density serum I included in last year’s haircare discoveries this is another win for The Ordinary!
