Keeping your tresses in some kind of respectable check during the winter months can often be a bit of a drag. And not just because of the (seriously) late nights during the party season. Thanks to the great British climate, the moisture in the air is ready to sabotage your salon blowdry and poker straight locks or even just fluff up your fringe. Recognising such woes, the beauty industry has spent the summer months in training and is now ready to fight the frizz.
So hoods down, chins high: here’s our pick of the best products around…
Save: Umbertto Giannini Frizzi Collection (priced from £5.29 at Boots nationwide and boots.com)
During the season when budgets are stretched, finding the extra pennies to invest in a new haircare range often isn’t possible. However, the latest range from Umberto Giannini offers benefits beyond it’s budget price tag. Covering all hair care needs – cleansing, conditioning, smoothing and styling – it uses silicone and Argan oil to keep frizz at bay. Our personal favourite is the Frizz Free Extreme Tamer (£5.99) for 3 days of smoothness.
Spend: Davines MOMO Moisturizing Anti-Frizz Protection Lotion (£16, cultbeauty.co.uk)
Putting high-grade natural ingredients to work, this hero product from ethical brand Davines counts Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Aniston and the Glam Beauty Team as part of its fan club. Work through towel-dried hair, before styling as usual. The structure of the cream will help hold your look and create an anti-pollution barrier.
Splurge: Ojon Rare Blend Oil™ Total Hair Therapy (£29, harrods.com)
Coloured and stressed hair is a prime target for frizz as water penetrates the damaged areas. Help bring your locks back to full health with Ojon’s Rare Blend Oil. It offers protection, nourishment and shine boosting properties – that’s enough in our book.
