Hair care heroes!

There’s not a lot we can’t do with our hair; coloured, au naturel, curly or straight, there’s a look that suits everyone and, luckily, a whole host of products with which to achieve them.

With that in mind, we’ve created a countdown of our top ten hair heroes that we feel are those true cult classics that everyone should try at least once. Do you own any of them?


10. L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray

Starting the countdown off is the L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray. A total cult classic and a product we couldn’t live without, this hairspray has a unique formula which means it will give your style lasting hold whilst leaving hair soft to the touch. Also formulated to disappear at the stroke of a brush, this hairspray means you can change your style as often as you can change your mind!

8. Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead

A texturising mousse which is designed to add body and bounce to limp hair, the Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead boasts a lightweight consistency and gives your curls maximum volume and structure. Also working add shine to your hair and inject life into drab locks, this gorgeous mousse leaves you with hair that dazzles.



7. Parlux 3800

The Parlux 3800 combines ceramic and ionic technologies to maintain the hair’s natural moisture whilst emitting an incredible airflow of 75 cubic metres per hour and helping to keep your hair in tip-top condition. Not only that, but it has two nozzle attachments, a 3 metre cable and a comfortable handle for ultimate ease of use. Who said blow drying was a chore?


6. label.m Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is a must-have for any handbag and we absolutely love this mini one from label.M. Designed to instantly refresh hair in between washes, this particular offering is blended with natural rich starch to disperse unsightly grease in your hair and give it that just-washed feeling.


5. Bumble & bumble Surf Spray

One of the original and best salt infused sprays, Bumble & bumble’s amazing Surf Spray is the perfect product for giving you wild, wind styled texture that is still soft and touchable. The ultimate spray for creating that tousled, beachy texture we all love, this spray is infused with seaweed and kelp extracts to enhance the moisture and manageability in your hair whilst infusing it with texture and volume.


4. ghd IV Styler

Transforming the way we style our hair, the original ghd stylers are a must-have set of irons that allow you to curl, straighten and wave your hair with ease. With a new and improved design, sleek aesthetic and a useful sleep mode, this tool is the one of the only heat stylers you will ever need in your collection.


3. Tangle Teezer

With uniquely designed teeth that flex and flick as they glide through the hair, the revolutionary Tangle Teezer caused quite a stir in the beauty community when it was released – and once you try it you will see why. Perfect for all hair types, even tangle-prone children’s hair and extensions, theTangle Teezer boasts different length, convex teeth that eliminate knots and tangles without breaking the hair. We also love its unique, hand-held design.


2. Moroccanoil

Everyone’s favourite hair oil for a reason, the revolutionary Moroccanoil hair treatment is a gorgeous conditioning product that absorbs instantly and helps to eliminate dry ends and frizz. Helping to protect your hair against environmental damage and suitable for use on colour and chemically treated hair, this styling oil can be even used on hair extensions and wigs.


1. Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer

In at number one has to be the world’s first pre-shampoo conditioning treatment. This miracle worker, which delivers a rush of moisture to the hair cuticle and restores suppleness, elasticity and bounce, gets a lot of love in the beauty community – and it’s easy to see why. With the legendary Audrey Hepburn being quoted as saying “elasticizer is miraculous”, Phillip Kingsley’s list of celebrity clients seems never ending and the wonder product has been winning awards left, right and centre since the mid nineties. Fast forward to 2013, and Phillip Kingsley’s Elasticizer is an official best seller with one of the treatments being sold every second. Fragrance free and best used once a week, this treatment promises visible results after the first use with continued improvement every time after. Amazing.

Make Up Specialist

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
