Half The Products, Twice The Glow: Multi-Tasking Heroes For Your Skin & Hair

Having a long routine for your hair and skin can be soothing – after all, self care is ritualistic and unbound by time. But it’s not every day that you can afford to take 30 minutes out for an all-encompassing routine that will make you glow, right?

On the days that I’m busy but I need to look extra fresh for the next day, I like to multitask with my products – things I can use both, on my skin and my hair. So if you’re looking to streamline your routine without compromising on quality, sit tight. We’ve got the lowdown on some versatile all-stars that promise to pamper you from head to toe.

Ohria’s Ultimate Skin & Hair Growth Tool

What It Is: A dual-purpose massage tool designed for both skin and hair. It features comb teeth for hair stimulation and shaped sides for facial massage (very similar to a gua-sha).

  • Skin Benefits: Through a series of massage steps this product has the capacity to enhance skin elasticity, boosts collagen production, reduces puffiness, and diminishes wrinkles and dark circles for a youthful appearance.
  • Hair Benefits: Similarly, the comb teeth stimulate hair growth, reduce hair fall, improve blood circulation in the scalp, and help in removing dead skin cells to promote healthy hair follicles.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil

What It Is: A nutrient-rich oil, lightweight, cold-pressed from almonds, free from harmful chemicals and additives, suitable for both skin and hair.

  • Skin Benefits: Provides deep hydration, improves skin tone, reduces blemishes, and softens the skin without clogging pores.
  • Hair Benefits: Strengthens hair, reduces breakage, stimulates growth, adds shine, and soothes the scalp, preventing dryness and conditions like dandruff.

Aloe Vera Gel

What It Is: A versatile gel extracted from the aloe vera plant, known for its soothing and healing properties.

  • Skin Benefits: Moisturises skin, treats acne with its anti-inflammatory properties, and helps in healing and soothing irritated skin.
  • Hair Benefits: Strengthens hair, controls greasiness by breaking down fats, and alleviates scalp itchiness and dandruff, promoting healthy hair growth.

Glycolic Acid

What It Is: An alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) used in skincare for its exfoliating properties, also beneficial for scalp health.

  • Skin Benefits: Promotes skin renewal, hydrates, reduces signs of aging, fades sun damage, and helps in treating acne and hyperpigmentation for a brighter complexion.
  • Hair Benefits: Acts as a scalp exfoliant, removing dead skin and product buildup, which can improve scalp health and potentially aid in controlling dandruff.

Copper Peptides

What It Is: Copper peptides are small protein fragments that have a high affinity for copper ions, beneficial for both skin and hair health. They are usually used in the form of serums.

  • Skin Benefits: Stimulate collagen and elastin production, reducing wrinkles and improving skin firmness. They can also potentially even out skin tone.
  • Hair Benefits: May extend the hair growth cycle, increase follicle size for thicker hair, and improve blood circulation in the scalp, supporting healthier hair growth.

Derma Rollers

What It Is: Derma rollers are tools used for micro-needling – a process that promotes collagen induction through the use of thousands of tiny needles. These needles create micro-injuries to the skin, starting a healing process that tends to rejuvenate the skin and promote hair growth. It’s less scary than it sounds!

  • Skin Benefits: Regular use of a derma roller can significantly fade acne scars and it’s suitable for use on acne-prone skin, with the caution to avoid active breakouts and to sterilize the roller after each use. Additionally, it works for wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
  • Hair Benefits: For hair, derma rolling not only promotes increased growth, density, and thickness but also boosts collagen production and stimulates cell turnover.

This mini-list of products illustrates how certain ingredients and tools can be effectively used for both skincare and haircare, offering multiple benefits across different aspects of beauty routines. So why have ten bottles crown your vanity when you can in fact, have five?
