Bot­tles of con­di­tioner might be feel­ing a lit­tle hurt right now. For ages we couldn’t imag­ine our rou­tines with­out them, but times are chang­ing and the post-sham­poo­ing prod­uct is no longer the hero it once was. If you have fine hair, habit-fu­elled dol­lops of con­di­tioner can knock out im­por­tant tex­ture; in­stead, smooth hair with the for­mi­da­ble duo that is de­tan­gling spray (I like Christophe Robin’s Hydrating Leave-in Mist With Aloe Vera, £31.50) and a Wet Brush (£8). To­gether, they make light work of knots, and leave hair smooth but with more play­ful­ness and tex­ture. Hair stylist An­drew Bar­ton (who shot to fame on Chan­nel 4’s 10 Years Younger, and whose epony­mous hair care range is stocked in Asda and is fab), also thinks we need to be more mind­ful: “You don’t need a con­di­tioner that matches your sham­poo. Choose your sham­poo to ad­dress your hair’s needs, then keep a quench­ing con­di­tioner and masks to add mois­ture – but only on the very ends. Re­ally, you need less than you think.”
