Smooth hair for all hair types

The right leave-in conditioner will help tame frizz, reduce flyaways and keep hair soft.

Fine hair
Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine, $45.
This leave-in hair conditioning oil is great for fine hair. It contains oils of coriander, camelina (a small seed) and apricot, which penetrate and seal hair layers. With an awesome drop applicator for a precise, no-waste dosage, it leaves hair feeling fuller and healthier.
Frizzy hair
Matrix Biolage SmoothProof Leave-In Cream, $30.
If your hair is anything like mine, you will understand my fear of humid days. But we needn’t worry any longer: this leave-in cream will tame your mane and allow you to wear your hair out in any weather. It’s water-resistant and paraben-free, too.

Coloured hair
Pureology Colour Fanatic, $43.
This multi-tasking treatment spray is ideal for coloured or heat-damaged hair. It’s lightweight and boasts 21 ways to prime, protect and perfect colour-treated hair. With a blend of natural oils to condition, and fennel seed extract for environmental protection, it is also completely free of salt, parabens and drying alcohols.
Curly hair
Label.m Leave-In Conditioner, $37.
All hair types will benefit from this easy-to-use conditioner, especially those with thick hair or curly locks. Ginger, ginseng, bergamot, juniper, mandarin and vanilla get to work to control frizz and strengthen hair, while protecting against static and UV rays. This product encourages natural curls to come out of their own accord, leaving hair soft and shiny.
All hair types
De Lorenzo Et Protein Complex, $29.
Everybody could do with a dose of this protein spray in their life. It’s a strengthening treatment with organic rosehip oil and quinoa proteins. Use it for all hair types, but it’s particularly good for protecting coloured and dry hair, and dealing with those pesky split ends. This beautiful product is excellent value for money.
