Doubling up – taming frizz

Combine clever technology with targeted haircare for super-charged protection against frizz and flyaways

THE PERFECT BLOW DRY

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

Give your blow dry extra smoothing power with a light touch of some Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. Not only does it reduce drying time, the silicones form a shield around the cuticle, protecting the hair from temperamental winter conditions that can otherwise make the hair unruly very quickly. (£18.95, paulmitchell.com)

Nicky Clarke Diamond Shine Pro Salon Blow Dryer

Is there no end to the joy that diamonds can bring? It seems not, for they are destined to help us banish bad hair days forever too. The Nicky Clarke Diamond Shine Pro Salon Blow Dryer has a diamond-infused grille that releases frizz-controlling ions so hair dries with a smooth, glossy finish. It’s as close to a salon blow dry as you can get at home. (£63.99, boots.com)

STRAIGHT TO THE TOP

Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask

When hair is weak or damaged, even subtle temperature changes can trigger a hair disaster. The answer is to repair it, from the inside out. With antioxidant-rich prickly pear seed oil, the Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask is a powerful hair healer that restores smoothness and shine from root to tip so hair is on top form once more. (£50, lookfantastic.com)

Braun Satin-Hair 7 Brush

This is no ordinary hairbrush. With the push of a button, the Braun Satin-Hair 7 Brush releases millions of invisible active ions that effectively remove static and smooth the hair as you work your way through the lengths. You can feel the softness and see the shine instantly. It’s time to give your brush an upgrade. (£21.99, houseoffraser.co.uk)

LOOKING HOT

Korres Almond & Linseed Nourishing Hair Mask

Once a week (or more often if your hair is damaged), replace your usual conditioner with the Korres Almond & Linseed Nourishing Hair Mask to provide an extra hit of hydration. It sooths dry and brittle hair brilliantly and thanks to vitamin B3 and provitamin B5, it will protect your hair against damage from everyday heat styling too. (£10, johnlewis.com)

Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance Hot Air Styler

You needn’t be afraid of heat damage if you’re wrapping your hair around the Vidal Sassoon Infra Radiance Hot Air Styler. Using infrared technology to ensure even heat, this time-saving tool gently dries and styles your hair in the same motion without drawing away excess moisture. Clever. It also leaves hair remarkably smooth with plenty of bounce through the lengths. (£34.99, boots.com)
