10 top prod­ucts to save those fraz­zled tresses

Keep your mane sleek and soft, no mat­ter what the el­e­ments throw at you, says Ber­nadette Fal­lon

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - FASHION/BEAUTY -

Parched win­ter hair, sav­aged by cen­tral heat­ing, at­tacked by wind and rain? Frizz, split ends, colour dam­age, over-styling and break­age — we feel your pain. It doesn’t have to be like this. We tested a va­ri­ety of prod­ucts in a range of prices to beat fraz­zled hair night­mares.

la­bel.m Leave-in Con­di­tioner: £12.95, Look Fan­tas­tic

Af­ter comb­ing through damp hair, the end re­sult was fan­tas­tic; soft, silky hair, with not a touch of frizz. A big hit.

Philip Kings­ley Daily Dam­age De­fence Con­di­tion­ing Spray: £13.20, All Beauty

This spray is de­signed to use af­ter wash­ing your hair, and it’s rec­om­mended to use both sham­poo and con­di­tioner first. That ex­tra burst of con­di­tioner does a very good job of tack­ling frizz and coarse­ness. Hair af­ter­wards looked soft and silky.

Gio­vanni Hair Care Di­rect Leave-In Weight­less Mois­ture Con­di­tioner: £7.99, Look Fan­tas­tic

Hair was left soft, man­age­able and silky smooth. It ban­ished all trace of frizz and cured all coarse­ness.

Grow Gor­geous Full Bod­ied Vo­lu­mis­ing Leave-in Con­di­tioner:

£16, Grow Gor­geous

This light­weight serum is a great multi-tasker, work­ing as a leave-in con­di­tioner as well as a blow dry serum. Hair was smoothed out beau­ti­fully af­ter­wards, with no residue. It looked nat­u­rally soft and had a bit of bounce. And the vol­ume boost­ing? Oh yes.

KMS Moist Re­pair Leave In Con­di­tioner: £17.50, Look Fan­tas­tic

This light­weight sprayin con­di­tioner doesn’t weigh the hair down and dries to a silky fin­ish. Hair was left feel­ing smooth, with no prod­uct residue.

TIGI Bed Head Colour God­dess Mir­a­cle Treat­ment Mask For Coloured Hair, 200g: £7.40, Look Fan­tas­tic

This prod­uct smells amaz­ing, and its lus­cious, rich for­mula slathered on very nicely.

Af­ter wash­ing out we didn’t ap­ply any other prod­ucts and hair dried to an ex­tremely smooth, soft and man­age­able fin­ish — re­sult!

Iles For­mula Haute Per­for­mance Con­di­tioner, 200ml: £43, Har­vey Ni­chols

Hair was no­tice­ably smoother, a bit shiner, and com­pletely frizz free.

Odylique Ul­tra Rich Balm: £19, Odylique

This is a great mois­ture boost and works well as a tex­tur­is­ing cream to sep­a­rate hair strands, or as a pre-heat treat­ment. How­ever, we found the oil-based cream can leave hair look­ing a lit­tle greasy. Maria Nila Struc­ture Re­pair Leave In Cream, 200ml: £19.54, Ama­zon Ap­plied af­ter sham­poo­ing to towel-dried hair, we were left with a shin­ing mane that re­mained soft through the days that fol­lowed.

Moroc­canOil In­tense Hy­drat­ing Mask: £25.45, Feel Unique

Us­ing richly nour­ish­ing ar­gan oil as their key in­gre­di­ent, these prod­ucts are deep mois­tur­is­ing cat­nip for dry, frizzy hair. The verdict The la­bel.m leave-in con­di­tioner was the pick of the bunch and, in our opin­ion, a ver­i­ta­ble mir­a­cle worker, turn­ing hair so fraz­zled it was al­most straw into soft, silky, smooth strands. Best of all, the re­sults lasted for days. For a lovely light creamy prod­uct that ban­ished frizz and came up trumps in soft­ness and frizz, we loved the Maria Nila Struc­ture Re­pair Leave In Cream.
