Tried and tested, these products will impress, no matter the colour, cut or texture of your hair.
January can be a bugger for itchy skin and scalps. Slough off the scurf with Espa’s new Tri-Active Scalp Detox and Purify exfoliating mask which converts to a foaming wash and follow up with a few drops of their clarifying serum. Tri Active Scalp Care Duo, £70 (also available separately)
A microfibre hair wrap is the quickest way to get excess water gone, plus the shape is designed to fit your head so no unrolling towel-turbans. Brushworks sells them as a two-pack so you always have a clean one to hand. £9.99
If, on the other hand, you’re skipping the wash in the morning shower we can’t recommend Only Curls turbans highly enough. Designed to fit even the biggest, highest hair, they also come in a choice of colours and look pretty cute on (honestly!). £16
The benefits of purple pigmented products in reducing brassiness on blonde and grey hair are well documented. Nine Yards’ vegan duo, Silver Linings and True Cool contains broccoli seed oil to help eliminate frizz £19.50 each,
Not only is Urtekram’s Fragrance Free hair care great for sensitive scalps, it’s also completely vegan and comes in sustainable sugarcane-derived packaging. £7.60 each
Bar addicts should check out Object Beauty for their impressively comprehensive range of bars, including genuinely moisturising shampoo and conditioner. £14 each,
For luxurious shine, look no further than a decent hair oil. We’re obsessed with ByErim, an independent brand smashing it on Instagram and headed for world domination, thanks to the luxurious blend of 100% natural, cruelty-free, rich oils which work their magic on any follicles (also recommended for beards) and the helpful and engaging online tutorials and tips. From £25
If you use heat-based stylers, get ready to welcome a new BFF into your life: Innersense’s lusciously scented Serenity Smoothing Cream. Smooth through hair prior to styling (and even if you’re not using heat, this one’s a must for glossy locks).
If you want hair like silk, we recommend resting your head on a silken pillowcase to lessen night-time tangles (the added benefit is no more sleep crease across your cheek). We like Lilysilk’s 19-momme charmeuse silk Oxford style (for obvious reasons). £36
