The Inverse Hair Conditioning System

It may sound crazy but it’s true — this “frozen” flat iron could give you your best hair yet. Instead of blasting hair with heat, you press the cold iron plates through wet hair (yes, wet hair!), and the sub-zero temperature of the plates transforms the keratin fibre of your hair. Instead of zapping moisture like heat would, the icy plates seal hydration in. It’s a splurge, and it doesn’t improve texture overnight, but slowly and surely hair becomes less frizzy, smoother and far easier to manage.

Hair Conditioning System, $400, Inverse.

Nexxus City Shield DD Crème

This “DD” or damage defence leave-in treatment helps to create a lightweight veil on hair, shielding it from city grime that can cause hair to swell. It contains lotus flower, elastin proteins and wheat to smooth hair and make it manageable.

City Shield DD Crème, $19, Nexxus.
