Want your hair to swiiish like Cat Deeley (would you believe she's 34!!!!) then take good care of it! I've been dying my hair since I was about 12/13, so that's a good 8 years... as you can imagine, with this much dying, it's essential to keep that moisture locked in to avoid the scraggly scarecrow look. I do like Pantene Pro-V products but my hair product love lies elsewhere.

My four steps to well conditioned swiiiiiiiiiishable gorgeous hair:

Step 1: A great shampoo
Step 2: A rich conditioner
Step 3: A heat protection product (I use tresemme heat defence spray)

Step 4: (If you've wild hair - or just a lot of it!) A gorgeous taming serum or shine spray

I'm currently using the new Paul Mitchell range.  Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi has been around for a long time now, but it's the brand's 30th anniversary and so to celebrate they launced the new Awapuhi Wild Ginger range which contains keratin to strengthen the hair from root to tip. It's quite pricey but blimey it's good!

I use the moisturizing lather shampoo, the keratin cream rinse and the shine spray. The shampoo is especially good value because you just have to use a pea sized amount as it lathers up loads!! I used quite a large amount the first time I washed my hair with this and spent about 10minutes trying to rinse away all the lather!!!

Never fear. If your hair is more scare-crow at the moment than Cat Deeley and you've not got the money to buy the new Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger range then why not pop down to the nearest chemist and grab yourself an intensive conditioning treatment! I love Aussie Hair Care 3 minute miracle :), you can also buy it in sachet form for about 99p. Use this weekly and you'll notice your hair is much easier to control and looks shinier... (and the rest of the time follow steps 1-4 to avoid such a hair disaster in future)

What's your top tip for gorgeous tresses?
