Were all too familiar with a bad hair day - the frizz, the coarseness, the uncontrollable kinks. And, chances are, all three happen just when you need sleek, shiny hair the most. Well worry not; follow these tried and tested suggestions and wave goodbye to bad hair forever.More
Best for: Styling Addicts
Phyto PhtyoKératine Reparative Shampoo, £10.50 and Conditioner, £13.50 contain a botanical keratin that is similar to the protein that makes up our own hair - in effect it plugs the gaps in the hair fibre which have come about from damage caused by heat and chemical styling and environmental factors. They also contain hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate and plump the hair, botanical ceramides that coat the cuticle making it smooth and shiny and, finally, pomegranate extract that infuses the hair with antioxidants to protect it from free radicals. There’s not much this combo can’t do.
Best for: Battling Frizz
Brazilian blow dries have been around for a while. They are fantastic at reducing frizz and making hair appear healthier. However the process can give off some nasty fumes leaving you in tears (quite literally) and the fact that they contain formaldehyde has been (rightly or wrongly) a topic of concern in recent months. Now there is another option. Zoltan Vargyai at Compton Hair has introduced his new system, Amazon. It’s formaldehyde free and uses a combination of amino acids and Guarana extract to reduce frizz and inject a healthy, glossy shine. It doesn’t irritate eyes and the results last just as long as a regular Brazilian, but its greatest advantage is that you can wash your hair the same day as having the two hour treatment rather than having to persevere with product heavy, unwashed hair for three whole days.
