We review hair products to tame unruly curly hair

Has your hair always been curly or taken on a life of its own as you’ve got older?  As hair loses pigmentation and turns grey it becomes coarser and often curlier than it was in our youth.  Without the correct hair care products, styling becomes more difficult, and it’s harder to achieve a sleek glossy appearance.  We have tested luxury products to help you create that just stepped out of the salon look at home!

This video features products we have tested for taming curly hair


Phyto has recently launched Phytospecific Cleansing Care Cream to gently cleanse hair and scalp, while replenishing lipids, providing hydration and protection.  Suitable for all hair types, but works especially well on curly hair leaving it intensely nourished and detangled.  Sulphate and silicone free, you apply to a dry scalp and leave for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.
