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.
Invati exfoliating shampoo
From £20.50, aveda.co.uk
A thinner formulation than you might expect but still creates a nice lather, the whole range works in harmony to boost hair thickness and leaves it soft and manageable.
Damage Reverse restorative conditioner
£23, Ojon, boots.com
If the warmer weather has you inspired to try wearing your locks wavy, this easily absorbed, nourishing conditioner will help tame frizz and flyaways.
Mend My Hair 5-in-1 hair oil
£7.99, Umberto Giannini, boots.com
Most of the frizz-fighting miracle serums of the Nineties and Noughties have been replaced with oils which are more likely to work on your hair not just adhere to the palms of your hands.
Hairdresser's invisible oil
The key ingredient of this ultra-light oil blend is coconut oil – which has long been used as a treatment and styling product by African and Asian women.
Triple Resist reinforcing leave-in treatment
£2.49, Elvive L'Oréal Paris
Stressing over the appearance of fragile hair is only going to make things worse; adding an extra step to a regular routine may take a while to get used to, but this product is praised for its quick results.
