We'll bet our bottom dollar that you'll agree there is nothing worse than a bad hair day.
They zap you of your confidence, take the spring out of your step and leave you avoiding all things shiny for fear of catching a glimpse of your reflection.
But don’t worry. We have a solution. We’ve pounded the streets, ducking in and out of supermarkets and salons, to find you the ultimate hair heroes.
Hair saviour 1: Klorane Extra Gentle Dry Shampoo
We really, really envy those people that can just wash and go. Not wash, blow-dry, straighten, give up, and then go. That’s why we love Klorane Extra Gentle Dry Shampoo. It has agents that literally soak up the grease, enabling you to get that little bit extra out of your last salon session. It's a necessity for crazy busy ladies – so all of us then!
Hair saviour 2: Toni&Guy Firm Hold Hairspray Mini
A good soldier wouldn’t go into battle without carrying armour. And sensible ladies shouldn’t brave the winter weather without carrying frizz-fighting ammunition. This little wonder from Toni&Guy dries quickly, secures your style, banishes frizz and fits in your handbag. What more could you want?
Hair saviour 3: Redken 5th Avenue NYC – Haircare Fresh Curls Curl Refiner
We love to act wild, but we like our hair tamed. Thankfully Redken feels the same. Its Haircare Fresh Curls Curl Refiner detangles, controls frizz and delivers shine. Perfect for keeping unruly waves under control.
Hair saviour 4: RPR Hair Care Protect My Hair (Wildberries)
This thermal defence spray not only stops you from getting stressed tresses by protecting against temperatures up to 220F, it also smells divine thanks to its wild berry infusion. You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re doing your hair in a meadow. One word – smokin’!
Hair saviour 5: Lady Jayne Bobby Pins – Contoured
The only problem with these little beauties is the fights they cause in the Bh office as we dual over the last one. We love the fact that they’re contoured to suit the shape of your head and provide maximum hold for fancy up ‘dos or simply scrapping back your fringe. A must for every handbag.
Hair saviour 6: Trilogy Botanical Moisture Masque
You treat dry skin with nourishing goodies like shea butter and organic rosehip oil so why not do the same for dry hair? Trilogy Botanical Moisture Masque makes use of these intensive moisture-boosting ingredients to improve texture, strength and appearance. Our verdict: a godsend for colour treated or dehydrated hair.
Hair saviour 7: TIGI Bed Head Shine Junkie
This really is shine in a can: you can even see it glisten as you pump. But sadly, amongst these eight other mane multi-taskers, it’s not enough to just look pretty. Thankfully, it also smells gorgeous and curbs flyaways. Pretty and useful? Now you’re talking.
Hair saviour 8: Clairol Nice'n Easy Root Touch-Up
No one looks good with obvious re-growth and although a paper bag works wonders at disguising it, there are other options. Clairol's clever colour matching touch-up lives up to its name and won’t break the bank either. Re-growth, what re-growth?
