Beauty Clinic: Help with limp, frizzy, lifeless hair
Q. Since the winter started my hair is a disaster area, limp, frizzy and lifeless. Please help! A. This is such a common dilemma. Here are some tips that we hope help you.
Try Green People Volumising Quinoa & Artichoke Shampoo and Conditioner, which help restore shine and body. This duo, which contains 81 per cent organic ingredients, really helps put the va va voom back in to your tresses.
Tip your head upside down to dry your hair and put on a low setting with medium heat rather than blasting it.
Keeping your hair trimmed regularly to stop the weight making it droop also helps. If the problem is long term, you might want to have some layers. Our book The Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible has a section with tips on pumping up the volume. (The latest edition is just out, available from book stores and at www.victoriahealth.com/£11.99.)
Conditioning your hair well will help prevent frizz but for extra defence try John Frieda Frizz-Ease range (all available at www.boots.com and in store). Or consider Macadamia Professional Anti-Humidity Finishing Spray, with its special Pro-Oil complex/£18.95 from www.feelunique.com.
Pharmacist Shabir Daya also recommends trying New Nordic Hair Volume/£24.95 for 30 tablets from www.victoriahealth.com. This contains biotin and zinc to help maintain normal hair condition and growth, as well as copper to help fight grey.
