R+Co Dart Pomade and Acid Wash
Pomade leave you feeling perplexed? What is it actually used for? Turns out, it's not just for short hair – this pomade stick is great at taming flyaways, especially at the scalp line. Meanwhile, Acid Wash is for anyone who wants to restore their hair to a natural, clean state, and it uses apple cider vinegar to wash without stripping away natural oils or colour.
Dart: RRP £18
Acid Wash: RRP £27.50
Paul Mitchell Neuro Liquid
Blow-dry or straighten your hair every day? Curl it every week? You may love your hi-tech heated tools more than your family members, but your hair won't be so keen. Exposure to high temperatures from tools can dehydrate hair, causing the outer cuticle to crack. The result? Frizzy and unmanageable strands. The Neuro Liquid collection, featuring HeatCTRL technology, has been specifically created to withstand heat and provide protection for hair, every time it’s styled. Result!
RRP from £8.95

Nioxin Scalp Protect Serum and Density Defend Foam
Worried your hair isn’t as thick as it once was? You’re not alone, but tackling it can sometimes come at a cost – namely your colour. This is why we're loving Scalp Protect Serum and Density Defend foam from Nioxin. Scalp Protect Serum is applied before your colour is carried out (so you'll need to find your local Nioxin salon) and protects the scalp during the colouring process. To keep the good work going once you’re home, use Density Defend, a lightweight leave-in strengthening foam for coloured hair has been shown to reduce breakage by up to 93 per cent, while also improving the vibrancy of your hair colour.
Scalp Protect: RRP £18.05,
Density Defend: RRP £20.50
