Hair dilemma: Dehydrated hair
Hair solution: Charles Worthington Salon at Home Secrets Collection Moisture Seal Intense Rescue Melting Balm
Is your hair gasping for moisture? This gorgeous butter-meets-balm melts to a silky oil when warmed up. Scoop out a walnut sized amount, rub between your hands and then apply all over your hair, paying particular attention to the ends. You can either leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse out, or sleep with it on overnight and wash it off in the morning. It even works on dry hair to slick down any frizz.
Hair dilemma: Limp and lifeless
Hair solution: Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Backcomb In A Bottle
Flat and limp is not a good look. Enter – magic transformation in a bottle! Simply spray onto the roots of your hair, leave for a few seconds, massage into the roots and watch your hair expand. It even doubles as a dry shampoo for those nights when the babysitter can make it after all.
Hair dilemma: Colour fade
Hair solution: Boots Colour Restore
You know those days when you look in the mirror and realise that the drab person staring back at you is actually you? It may be time for a colour boost. But instead of spending a fortune at the salon, reach for this clever box of product instead. Available in three shades; Cool Ash, Iced Platinum and Deep Red, you simply use it as you would a regular home colour or wash it through the hair like a shampoo. It will lift out unwanted colour, even out the tone and return your hair shade back to its former glory.
Hair dilemma: Split Ends
Hair solution: TRESemme Split Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner
Did you know you could repair split ends without snipping them? Neither did we. Apparently, these genius shampoos and conditioners contain a special protein that strengthens your hair from the inside out. They have been clinically proven to reduce split ends by 80% after just three washes. They’re the kind of results we like to see.
Hair dilemma: Frizz
Hair solution: L’Oreal Paris Heat Protect Spray Straight
If you’re having a frizz freak-out, pop this spray on your weekly shopping list and add 3 seconds of spraying time to your hair drying routine. Not only does it contain classic Elnett hairspray, which helps keep unruly locks at bay, but it includes a heat protector AND a special technology that keeps the hair cuticle smooth for three days. Nice!
