The best hair care products for women: Many brands now cater to scarily-specific hair types
Hair is the one feature that even the most low-maintenance women will usually spend some time attempting to control. Whether that's blow-drying the bejesus out of it on a regular basis in an effort to flatten out the frizz, or torturing it with hot tongs in order to pump up the volume.
And that's not even taking into account the number who hit the bottle in order to get the colour they wish they were born with. Now that many brands cater to scarily-specific hair types (dry scalp, greasy ends, Gemini with a Cancer moon) it's easier than ever to find the one that suits you best.

From £20.50, aveda.co.uk

Triple Resist reinforcing leave-in treatment
£2.49, Elvive L'Oréal Paris
