There’s been a huge boom in K-beauty skincare over the past few years, and now, those of us stateside are finally beginning to catch up in the haircare realm. Korean haircare is actually a lot like Korean skincare in that instead of weighing yourself down with quick-fix products (like too much hairspray or tons of dry shampoo), K-beauty haircare focuses on formulas that aim to treat and fix problems.
Because of this, intensive treatments and products that target the scalp are extremely popular. Korean hair products are filled with moisturizing and soothing ingredients like argan oil, goat milk, and shea butter. You can smooth on a scalp scaler or pop on a self-heating sheet mask (yes, there are sheet masks for hair!) for silky, smooth strands in no time.
While we still aren’t able to get our hands on every product that people in Seoul swear by for luscious locks, thanks to brands that have begun to sell internationally, we’re able to try some of the cult-favorites.
