Shining, Gleaming, Streaming, Hair!

Trying to keep your hair looking healthy and vigorous can often present a challenge, particularly if it is long, coloured or permed.

"I've treated my hair pretty harshly over the years. From perming and straightening to bleaching and changing colours several times, I've done it all and yet my hair still looks quite healthy and shiny.  My secret?  I use a good treatment rather than a normal conditioner each time I wash it," says editor, Michelle Larin.

To get your tresses looking nourished, glossy and full-bodied, we recommend using the following treatments:
