The Christmas Present Buying Guide: Haircare lovers

Every family has one, a person who is nuts about having really nice hair and making sure it's always hot to trot.  The sheer notion of buying them anything hair related fills them with glee.  This was me before a job and other menial things got in the way of me being able to spend hours and hours washing my hair and lavishing the attention on it that I thought it deserved.

One thing I have always made sure of is having a decent brush for my hair.  I personally think you can't go wrong with Denman brushes.

I remember I was working at TfL in Victoria and the Boots inside the station (downstairs) was selling Denman brushes for about £2 when their full retail price was £7 or something.  I got a bit excited with myself and bought five.  That was two years ago and four of them are still wrapped up in the spares drawer.  Denman have expanded their product range and any of these brushes would make a fine present/stocking filler.  I thought the scented brushes would be a bit of a gimmick but I have two and they have retained their smell for quite some time.  You can pick them up from Denman directly (click here).

Fear not as it's not all about post washing.  There are some really nice haircare sets out on the market at this time of year..

As I said in the post which explained these guides, I'm not suggesting you go buy something that I haven't used and I have used TIGI and Pantene items before, with very good results.

The TIGI products featured are free of SLS but the Pantene ones contain them.  I know a lot of people are making the transition over to SLS free but I have no problems with SLS ones, they don't make my scalp itch or anything so I'm happy to carry on using them.  You can buy the TIGI sets from Supercuts, ask them before you sit down to get your hair cut and they'll sort your set out whilst you're getting glammed up..ta da!  The Pantene Colour Protect range is fairly new and is something I know members of my family who dye their hair would find very useful..

The items on the left are a great budget buy and I've trialled them and my experience with them was very good.  They are available individually and will set you back £8.37.  They have a full range of products including an alternative shampoo and conditioner set (to protect your colour and give you some volume), a deep conditioning damage rescue treatment and a nourishing shine spray.  The whole range will set you back £16.35.
