Our fave hair products – recommended!

We asked our team at EL for their favourite haircare products available in Hong Kong. From shampoos, leave-in conditioners to hair masks, here’s what they recommend for the best results.

John Masters Organics Hair Milk with Rose & Apricot ($310)

“I love it because it smells amazing but it’s also something I can use on the kids to help detangle and nourish their hair during swimming season.” – Rebecca Simpson

Apivita Propoline shampoo and conditioner ($330)

“I use Apivita Propoline shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair – there are no silicones or other nasties and my hair always feels super clean.” – Kate Woodbury


Naturals by Watsons Olive Shampoo ($38.60)

“I like Naturals by Watsons Olive Shampoo as it cleanses both my scalp and hair really well. It leaves my hair feeling moisturised even without the use of a conditioner, plus it doesn’t leave me with an oily scalp, despite being in a hijab for at least 10 hours a day!” – Siti Shahirah

The Aquis Prime Restorative Leave-in Conditioner ($202.60)

“The Aquis Prime Restorative Leave-in Conditioner is a lightweight mist that helps to condition and smoothen damp hair. I’ve been using it every night for a month and love how convenient it is. A few spritzes on my tresses and a quick blow-dry later, and I’m ready for bed! I do feel that it works by making my ends less frizzy, but you also have to make sure not to spray too close to your roots or else it can feel a tad heavy.” – Anthia Chng

Aquis Leave in


The Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask ($285)

“I’ve been bleaching my hair for years now, so I’m always looking for nourishing masks to hydrate my ends – trust me, I have about a dozen! The Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask is the only one I love. It’s super hydrating without making my hair feel heavy or sticky after. Plus, there are over 6,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating on Google to back me up!” – Michaela Bisset


Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector ($280)

“Olaplex has long had an army of women vouching for its results online, so two months ago I decided to put the Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector to the test. I added it to my haircare routine; a small amount on damp hair twice a week, leaving it for 15 minutes before resuming my regular shampoo and conditioner routine. Despite the high price tag for just a small 100ml bottle, I find that the product goes a long way. Plus, the results are proving effective – I’ve noticed less breakage, reduced frizz, more shine and an overall healthier hair condition.” – Leanda Rathmell
