Brett strolls through Convent Garden looking dapper in his stylish tweed blazer, Fred Perry, camel waist-coat, casual jeans and polished brogues (vintage). Cleverly coordinated with matching tweed headphones and a cravat peaking out ever so slightly from his breast pocket, topped off with an elegant time-piece; his grandad’s pocket watch. “I tend to try and always look smart and wear a combination of high-street and designer brands.” He was truly the epitome of city gent meets English dandy.
I had the chance to try Richard Ward’s ‘winter hydrate’ hair products from his ‘seasons’collection – as you would expect this collection nourishes your tired tresses when the seasons change, with a range of products that are each suitable for one of the four seasons. After seeing Richard Ward’s success on QVC I was eager to see what all the fuss was about.
“Hair has different demands as the seasons change; pollution, environment, humidity, temperature and the elements all affect the health and condition of your hair and scalp. Seasons works with your hairs changing needs.” says Richard.
Unlike any other hair products I’ve heard of before i was eager to to try my “winter hydrate” products which purify rebuild and renew hair. These included purifying shampoo, a balancing gentle shampoo, with patented Keratin Active, Amino Acid Complex, Wheat and Coconut to help soothe and condition, leaving hair and scalp feeling super moisturised and free of impurities.
The instructions on how to use this product are as follows: apply the shampoo to wet hair, lather and then rinse and if you feel your hair needs that extra kick you can repeat the process.
Anti-element hair primer, which is an element defying hair primer for hair with patent Keratin Active, Amino Acid Complex and Babassu Oil, which helps to prevent severe environmental effects and shield against possible damage from extreme temperatures and moisture levels. This will leave your hair feeling smooth, silky and nourished, reducing static and frizz.
When applying this product to your hair you only use a small amount in preferably a hazelnut size, to the mid-lengths and ends of towel dried hair after washing comb through, dry and style as normal.
An overnight hair and scalp therapy masque. This does exactly what it says, its a masque in which you apply to dry hair and scalp, comb through and leave to dry, which should take 10-15 minutes, you then leave it on overnight, rinse thoroughly in the morning and follow with purifying shampoo and your choice of Richard Ward conditioner.
After trying out each of these products I was very impressed. My hair is usually easily tangled and wiry, but Richard Ward’s Winter hydrate hairproducts completely changed the texture, colour and overall volume of my hair.
I am always willing to give new hair products a try and tend not to have too many high hopes when doing so, to save myself from disappointment. However, this collection fulfilled my expectations and so much more. I am definitely going to continue using this product, and can’t wait to try the Spring, Summer and Autumn products in this collection. The instructions are easy to follow and the results are truly brilliant.
