Hair Primer

At Hairhouse we have hair primer for all hair types! Hair primer includes styling products which care for brittle hair, fine hair, medium to thick hair, and you’ll even find the best hair primer for curls too! Tame frizz with a suitable leave in conditioner and always use a heat protectant before heat styling.

Finding the best hair primer
A hair primer is the first step in your styling routine and the ticket to a flawless finish with beautifully healthy hair. Similar to a makeup primer, a hair primer preps your hair for all of the products that you plan to put on top of it, from hair mousse and hair spray to hair masks and leave-in treatments.

It also hydrates the hair and protects it against heat damage when using hot styling tools so that you have less breakage and your hair is smooth, frizz-free and manageable. You can find your best hair primer at Hairhouse today with cruelty-free options and nutrient-rich formulas. Checkout today and enjoy free delivery when you spend over $50 Australia-wide!

Using a hair primer
A hair primer is made to be used as the first step in the styling routine so that it can protect against dryness when blow drying, straightening and curling. Most products are used on damp hair after washing so that you can then style or leave to air dry. If you're skipping the shampoo and conditioner and have used a dry shampoo instead, you can use a primer on dry hair and style as usual.

Hair types that should use a hair primer
Hair primers are magical products and all hair types should use one before heat styling to maintain the long-term health of your hair.

However, some types can benefit from them more than others. Dry and curly hair which suffers from frizz will be much more manageable with a primer that moisturises the hair to help you achieve a smooth, silky blowout. A hair primer is also essential for fine hair types whose hair can become brittle and break if you don't protect it before using hot tools. You can even help to maintain the health of thick hair by using a primer to prevent dryness and split ends.

Hair primers do more than just protect your hair from heat. They can nourish it with vitamins and minerals, add hydration, smooth, enhance shine, and basically act as a foundation for every other hair product. You can even find toning primers that double as a toner to prevent brassiness in blonde hair.

How do you use a hair primer?
It's super easy to use a hair primer. Follow these easy steps to prep your hair for a styling session:

1. Choose your preferred hair primer.
2. Spritz or apply a small amount of mousse to damp or dry hair.
3. Use a comb or brush to distribute the product evenly through the hair from roots to ends.
4. Style as usual!

How can a primer work with other hair care and styling products?
A hair primer is designed to work in with all of your other hair products and enhance the finished result. When using a beauty primer for skincare, you apply it after your lotion and before your makeup. With a hair primer, you would apply it after washing your hair and before using blow dryers and diffusers. Once the primer is on, you can also add any of your other products on top, from detanglers to styling mousse. Follow up with gels, pomades and more to style your hair exactly how you like. The Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer is a great option if you want to boost volume and strengthen hair during blow drying. It repairs from within to make hair up to 3 times stronger and provides thermal protection while adding lift and bounce.

Do you need hair primer?
As any good hairdresser will tell you, a hair primer is an important hair product that should be the first step in your haircare routine. Not only does it act as a hair treatment to nourish and smooth your hair, it protects it from heat styling so that your hair doesn't become dry and damaged. Hair primers are easy to use and work on any hair type so there's no excuse to not add one into your routine today!

Is hair primer good for your hair?
Absolutely! Hair primers are specially formulated to nurture and protect your hair from heat while making hair styling easier for flawless results. They're packed with beneficial ingredients for your hair, such as humectants, including glycerin and hyaluronic acid, which provide hydration to dry hair by drawing in moisture and locking it in. You can also find plenty of botanicals and proteins to strengthen hair, smooth frizz, add a healthy shine, repair damage and leave your hair feeling soft and manageable.
