Alyon Air Ionizer Tech Hair Dryer
When it comes to hair dryers, there’s a general consensus among hairdressers, celebrities and models alike: Parlux is where it’s at. Rightly regarded as the gold standard of the category, their Alyon model is a worthwhile investment regularly – its ionic technology makes for quicker drying, which leaves your locks in better nick long term.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that hair is at its sexiest immediately post-dip in the sea. But for those of us for whom a daily ocean swim is not really convenient, there’s thankfully an easy solution. This gorgeous salt spray adds definition to tousled locks, and body to plaits and ponytails; basically gorgeous hair everyday, no matter the distance to your nearest beach.
Dry Texturizing Spray
Big hair, sans grit and stickiness – it’s no wonder that scores of beauty lovers worldwide (including the gorgeous Duchess of Sussex) swear by this stuff. Delivering volume and grip (and also acting as a dry shampoo), it’s the first thing we reach for when we want to add that certain je ne sais quoi to flat, lifeless locks.
Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil
This cult, ultra-nourishing treatment, spiked with the oil of superfood prickly pear seed, is perfect for all hair types – from the driest and most damaged, to the relatively healthy strands that just need a top-up of hydration. Our tip? Apply as a quick mask in the shower, or leave on locks overnight for a deeper treatment.
Hair + Energy Formula
It’s true that good hair starts on your plate. But if you’re not always getting your five-a-day (we may also be guilty), a dedicated hair health supplement will help make up for any dietary shortcomings. This offering from nutritionist Jessica Sepel ticks all the boxes for long, luscious locks: it contains zinc, iodine and kelp, all of which work wonders for your strands.
Popular Bristle and Nylon Brush
There aren’t too many beauty products you can buy once and enjoy all your life, but the iconic Mason Pearson brush is certainly one. The crème de la crème of hairbrushes, it’s a mainstay in the kits of top hairstylists and models alike. The brush is designed to massage the scalp (to help stimulate hair growth) and to distribute natural oils through the lengths, for healthier, softer locks.
Clean & Classic Original
This oldie but a goodie has been helping us squeeze a few more days between shampoos for upwards of 10 years (and we’ll continue doing just that for many years to come). It freshens greasy strands with a spritz, making it the perfect handbag or gym kit addition. Our favourite hack: spray on freshly washed locks to add a boost of volume to too fluffy strands, and to keep hair cleaner, longer.
Silky straight strands and split ends – unfortunately when it comes to straightening our hair, these two generally go hand in hand. Which is why Cloud Nine’s tools are so brilliant – their floating ceramic plates let locks slide smoothly through, while their heat-control technology means that things never ascend to hair-damaging temperatures.
Hydrating parched strands and detangling knots in wet hair, adding shine and taming down flyaways on finished styles – there’s not much that Moroccanoil can’t do. The product that made argan oil a household name, it’s constantly on heavy rotation at top hair salons across the world. Your hair will be the healthiest and softest it’s been in years with this beauty.
When the hairstylist to Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Princess Diana crafts his own hairspray, you know it’s going to be good. The aptly named Modern Hairspray avoids the common pitfalls of older iterations – it’s brushable, while bringing the all-day hold you want for your style.
