Elaine Napier, owner of boutique salon Napier Hair and Beauty gives us her recommendations for top-condition locks


We’re a big fan of Kérastase at the salon – one of our ‘hero products’ is Kérastase Fusio Dose (RRP £15, £10 at Napier). An in-salon instant treatment which can be used on any hair type to lock in colour, it uses a range of concentrates and boosters which can be tailored to the individual.


Try Kérastase Resistance Volumifique Bain (£17.90) for volume – a luxurious, thickening-effect shampoo – then increase body even further with Kérastase Resistance Volumifique Spray (£20.90) before blow-drying. If frizz is an issue, tackle it with Kérastase Elixir Ultime Serum Solide (£27.50). It’s a jewel of a product which re-pulps and repairs frizz, split ends and over-processed areas immediately.


Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair Straightforward Time-Saving Blowdry Oil Spray (£22) is a salon favourite – even though it’s oil-based, it’s lightweight and makes blowdrying 2x faster.


All the great products in the world won’t help if you’re using the wrong styling tools. Our top salon pick is GHD’s Platinum Styler (£165). The Tri Zone technology delivers optimum care to all hair types, giving you style results without the extreme heat and reducing breakage and damage by over 50%.
