Glazing is the technique used by top colourists to provide a dazzling high shine to the tresses of their celebrity clients. Famed stylist Scott Cornwall has launched Shine On (£12.99, Boots), the first product of its kind in the UK. This protein-rich conditioning glaze contains diamond-clear colour molecules which impart a lustrous high shine that lasts for up to 24 washes. Suitable for all hair types including grey, Afro, coloured and non-coloured hair, this totally colourless glazing treatment will also breathe new life into tired hair.
Nadine Coyle has been tweeting about trying out new hair supplement Nourkrin (£50.95 for 60 tablets, Boots), which was recommended to her by a nutritionist. Nourkrin is known in the UK as a treatment for thinning hair and hair loss, however more and more professional hair dressers, beauticians and nutritionists are recommending it as a fast-track to beautiful, glossy hair. One of them is colour specialist Jo Hansford MBE, whose clients include Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and the Duchess of Cornwall. “Many of my clients are concerned about hair loss, whether it’s due to stress, pregnancy, or over-styling issues. Over time I have really seen Nourkrin encourage hair growth.”
Envying girls that on-trend, double-fishtail braid? Don’t despair; it’s probably a fake. Hothair have created an easy to use, £24 wrap-around fishtail braid hairpiece extension. Simply slick back your hair into two bunches at your nape, securing with a ponytail holder, then slide in the comb over the ponytail holder and wrap around the extra piece to disguise the join. In 12 natural-looking colours, it’s available at www.hothair.co.uk from Monday and from Hothair’s store in Meadowhall’s The Lanes later this month.
Harsh chemicals in shower gels and copper deposits in your taps could be damaging your hair. There could even be chemicals lurking in the conditioning mask you bought specially to improve it.

It also fixes your colour, gives a high shine and increases volume and strength. Containing sunflower, lemon and wheat protein extracts, it’s £7.99 at Holland & Barrett.
