HAIR TYPE: Curly or frizzy
While having curly hair looks great for that carefree holiday selfie, city life requires proper care and styling. Don’t shampoo every day as it will dry out your hair, increasing its unruliness. When you do wash, always use conditioner and only style your hair with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb. For those enviable Jon Snow curls, try:
MorrocanOil Curl Control Mousse
This lightweight mousse is infused with argan oil, which locks in your hair’s natural moisture while minimizing frizz.
Paul Mitchell Moisture Awapuhi Mist
Instead of trying to eradicate frizziness, soften it with this mist containing exotic ingredients such as Hawaiian awapuhi and plankton.
HAIR TYPE: Straight
Straight hair can easily fall flat and look a little dull. What you need is texture without the greasiness, so look to pomades and waxes. Remember, a little goes a long way – you’re not the godfather. Try:
Bed Head Matte Wax for Men
It amplifies your hair’s natural shine and softness while providing the perfect matte hold.
Baxter of California Cream Pomade
Forget the gel and smooth on a dollop of this moisturising pomade. It softens your hair without making it shiny and sticky.
HAIR TYPE: Wavy
Not curly but not quite straight, wavy hair is the perfect blend of the two and can look impeccable when handled with care. Avoid gels, clays and waxes as they will dry the hair out and make your waves frizzy instead of flowing. Here are our favourite picks:

Define your style while nourishing your hair with cedarwood essential oil.
