And if you’re still using your first pair of trusty straighteners from back in the (ahem, ancient) day, we’re delighted to introduce you to {Amika}, our latest obsession for all things {tools} and styling.

LIKE ROYALTY

When two industry giants come together, you can guarantee the result will be nothing short of magical. Case in point: the {OUAI x BYREDO Leave In Conditioner}. With BYREDO’s prowess in perfumery, alongside OUAI Haircare’s unmatched ability to deliver the ultimate ‘French girl’ tousled texture, this formula is the stuff that literal dreams are made of. Spritz through hair to hydrate, condition, detangle and protect against heat, all while shrouding yourself in {BYREDO's Mojave Ghost} scent — peppered with addictive notes of ambrette, magnolia, and sandalwood.

GRANDMOTHER KNOWS BEST

Created by Nikita and Akash Mehta — siblings with a mission to introduce Indian wisdom to Western hair care rituals — {Fable & Mane} melds the alchemy of Indian plants with divine scents devised by a world-worshipped French perfumer. The {Pre-Wash Strengthening Treatment Hair Oil} is an ode to their grandmother’s tradition of therapeutic hair oiling, and should be added to strands before you wash your hair. Treat it like a {mask} or treatment, leaving it on for as long as possible for maximum benefits. Slather all over your scalp as well as lengths to stimulate scalp circulation, nurture your roots and reawaken sleepy hair follicles for strong and healthy hair — no matter your hair type. As type four hair is thirsty, oils like this will really help it to flourish — just remember to use more product if your hair is extra coily!

AS SWEET AS PIE

If your hair is utterly, completely and totally frazzled (*looks at ends guiltily*), never fret — simply reach for {Briogeo’s} {Don't Despair, Repair! Vegan Apple Honey Bear Mask}. Packed with rosehip oil, algae extract and a ‘Vegan Apple Honey Complex’ (a nourishing, animal-friendly alternative to honey), it deeply conditions dry and damaged hair while strengthening and softening strands. It’s even proven to decrease the chance of hair breakage and boost hair moisture by up to 88% after just two uses! In case you can't tell, we're bear-y (sorry) big fans…

FULL OF SECRETS

Channel your inner Gretchen Wieners and boost your hair with frank body’s volumising {Dry - Clean Volume Powder}. A dry shampoo-cum-‘oomph’-booster, the powdered formula swiftly slurps up excess oils and lifts roots without using any harsh or irritating ingredients, which is ideal for those with sensitive scalps. Featuring vitamin E-rich rice bran to soothe angry scalps while absorbing the oils, it also uses hydrolysed keratin to smooth strands and reduce breakage. Plus, it adds a slight ‘grittiness’ to hair for added texture, bounce and ease when styling — all while extending time between washes! Coming in a dinky handheld bottle, you can throw it in your bag for the on-the-go touch-ups too. Flat, limp hair? We don’t know her.

TOOLS OF THE TRADE

One only needs peek at amika’s {MIGHTY MINI dryer} to instantly fall in love. Its fun, maximalist exterior is the thing of 70s-inspired dreams, and its next-gen heat technology emits far-infrared heat to instantly penetrate the cortex of each hair cuticle, heating from the inside out. Small enough to pop in your hand luggage, it’s our fail-safe secret to quick, frizz-free drying, wherever you are. Or, if you’re after perfectly waved beachy tresses (or doll-like curls), try the brand’s hard-working range of heat-powered brushes and wavers.
