In between salon visits, it can prove challenging to maintain the perfect mane at home without the right expertise and products by your side. But don’t fret: from detangling and de-greasing to volumising and curling, we’re here to let you in on our top hair tips (from the professionals) for a myriad of hair headaches for at-home and on-the-go. These hair hacks will go hand-in-hand with your own stylist’s recommendations on your own hair.
Hair Hack 1: Detangle Without Damage
