GROOMING TIPS

5 HAIR SAVIOURS

Sadly the winter chill is finally here, and seemingly to stay. The evenings are short and the mercury is dropping low, but, as much as I love a cosy winter soirée, the single figure temps bring with it a risk of your hair getting a little wayward.

So, to help you keep things up top from going torpid, I tested out five of the best hair products for the chillier months. For reference, I have straight, quite fine hair that hasn’t been cut for about a month.

I tend to use hair products with a bit more bulk in them to give my hair more body, so this clay-wax hybrid is right in my comfort zone. Naturally, it takes a little more working in than a lighter product, but it styles well and keeps a matte finish.

I’ve wanted to give sea-salt spray a go for a while now, because my hair always seems to look better in summer so I thought there must be some correlation. Turns out I was right! A few quick sprays of this gives decent hold and plenty of body without much effort – thanks, nature. Don’t go too heavy on it for risk of ending up with a proper crispy lid – there’s a fine line between sea-licked surfer and crusty beach bum.

Don’t be fooled by the slightly agricultural product name, Ted's Grooming Room Hair Mud is actually a pretty pleasantly textured kind of putty with a cumin seed and olive fragrance. At first touch I thought it was a little greasy but after working it into my hair it gave a surprisingly light, natural look and matte texture.

Now, if there’s one guy who’s undeniably got his grooming regime down, it’s David Beckham. So, testing out this body and hair wash from his new range of grooming products seemed like a no-brainer. As far as I’m concerned, you can never go wrong with a two-in-one wash – this one lathers up well, has a fresh scent to it and left my hair feeling fairly soft. Nice one, Becks.

Is it gel? Is it pomade? Is it mousse? No, it’s Liquifflex. Packaged up in a smart pump bottle, this revolutionary hair cream responds to two styling desires: for hair not to be left sticky or stiff, and for your hands to remain dry after use. I can confirm it is successful on both fronts, leaving me with a well-bodied do, clean hands, and a conundrum as to which of these products I’m going to use from now on.
