Give Hair a Big Drink

The best present you can give your hair is plenty of moisture and hydration.

Organic Surge Moisture Boost Shampoo and Conditioner, £6.95 each (organicsurge.com) are created for frizzy, dry or colour-treated hair, to give hair back its oomph. It ...

Wave Goodbye To Frizz

With colouring, heat styling and the endless products we subject our hair to, it's no wonder dry hair is more common than it's ever been. The issue with products that add moisturise is that they can sometimes also add weight to hair, making it harder to style. The answer is to look out for lightweight products that work intensely to lock moisture into hair - so basically the less you have to use, the less it will add heaviness. The new Pantene Expert Collection Hydra-Intensity range works ...
