Try Some Double-Moussing …

While we're not slaves to fashion, we do like to try the occasional trend. And the latest one of double-moussing is a winner in our book.

L'Oréal Professionnel Rebel Push Up Mousse, £12 (lookfantastic.com) is perfect for this. A powder-in-mousse, it gives hair loads of texture, and is ...

The new Garnier Ultimate Blends Argan Oil and Almond Cream Dry Hair Treatment Mask is on offer at Boots at the moment for £3.35 - from tomorrow it will be £4.99, which ...

Pollution is a buzzword in beauty right now, with the impact of the grimy environment around us becoming clearer. And it's not just skin that can suffer from the effects of pollution.
