5 hair care tips from JVN Hair

In London to launch his haircare line JVN Hair, author, activist, podcaster, presenter and comedian Jonathan Van Ness adds the ‘brand founder’ to his list of accomplishments.

Before He Was The Gleaming Grooming Expert On Netflix’s Beloved weird eye series, Van Ness spent decades working as a hairstylist in New York and Los Angeles. On weird eye, Van Ness makeovers come with handy tips that make maintenance a breeze, long after the cameras have gone dark. His subjects leave the salon chair looking much like themselves, only neater, fresher and a bit more polished.

JVN Hair follows the same philosophy of embracing and caring for your locks, regardless of their texture.

“Hemisqualane is half of the squalane molecule. It’s tiny, so it penetrates the hair shaft without weighing it down. It gives you gorgeous glide, immediate shine, instant strength, and improves hair over time. time,” says Van Ness.

Eve Cameron, beauty director of GH, is already a fan of products with punchy colors (all in glass or aluminum to facilitate recycling).

“Undamaged shampoo and conditioner made my wavy, color-treated hair extraordinarily shiny, so much so that my co-workers noticed. It was like walking around with a ring light.”

Not only did Van Ness tell us all about the products at launch (purchasable below exclusively from SpaceNK), he also shared a slew of haircare tips, and we’ve picked out five of the best gems to share. .

Just like the skin on your face, your scalp will benefit from a clarifying treatment. “When the hair follicles are clogged, new hair cannot pass through. The turmeric and rosemary extracts in the Scalp Pre-Wash Oil help decongest,” says Van Ness. It also contains bisabolol to soothe any irritation or itching while hemisqualane prevents breakage.

2. Feed yourself while swimming

A regular at the pool? A good conditioner and a swim cap go a long way in protecting and treating your strands. “Hair is like a sponge: if you wet it with water from the shower, put on conditioner and a bathing cap, it is more difficult for chlorine and pool water to penetrate”, explains Van Ness. Once you’re out, wash with a mild, deep-cleansing shampoo to get rid of dirt.

3. Niacinamide isn’t just for the skin

Niacinamide is a skincare mainstay for its hydrating, brightening, and smoothing properties. In Instant Recovery Serum, the restorative properties of Niacinamide help fortify weak strands and minimize split ends. This creamy formula works on all hair types and can also be used as an overnight treatment. “I will apply and put my hair in a loose bun or braids. It absorbs quickly and is anything but greasy,” says Van Ness.

4. Bounce and Shine

According to Van Ness, gray hair has more cuticle layers than pigmented hair, which is why it can look coarse or stiff. In addition to a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, he recommends incorporating a hydrating mask 2-3 times a week to keep the lengths soft and supple. It is also a good tip for heat-treated and colored hair.

“I try to use a mask once a week because I think it really makes a positive difference to the condition of the hair,” says GH Beauty Director Eve Cameron. “The Hydrate Deep Moisture Mask is lovely, with a pudding – but I liked it – vanilla meets sandalwood meets lemon and black currant scent.”

5. Try washing less

“Think of hair like fabric. There’s a lot more wear and tear if you wash and dry it daily,” says Van Ness. He recommends washing at most every other day. If you work out and sweat , try her hair misting technique.

“Raise your hair while you shower. Once out, grab a spray bottle and a wide-toothed comb or damp brush to detangle. Put a small amount of Instant Recovery Serum on your mid-lengths and ends for heat protection and dry your scalp’s natural oils into your hair. It will also make your hair less oily over time because your scalp doesn’t overcompensate for moisture loss.
