Even if it’s not humid, the constant drizzle can wreak havoc on our tresses, and unwanted frizz can be one of the biggest frustrations that comes with it. Thankfully haircare for dry, frizzy locks has come a long way in recent years with numerous smart products on the market that genuinely work.

Read on for my favourites, all tried, tested and loved.

Dizziak Deep Conditioner, £22 at cultbeauty.co.uk

Without a doubt one of the best conditioners I have ever tried, Dizziak pumps moisture into hair without leaving it weighed down or greasy. It’s buttery formula is more like a mask than a regular conditioner and I have been known to leave it on all night to really reap its benefits.

The independent brand has already won countless awards and is leading the way in multiculturally-minded beauty, creating products for all hair types, no exclusions. Try the Hydration Wash beforehand to real tame any unwanted frizz.

Løre Originals Legend Dry Hair Masks, £38 for 6 at Liberty London

An absolute game changer for anyone with unruly hair, Løre masks aren’t lying when they call themselves legendary. Developed by the talented team at London salon Taylor Taylor, the masks contain a cocktail of deeply nourishing ingredients – think amino acids, vegetable proteins, antioxidants, rich plaint oils and volcanic marine bio cultures – and they genuinely work. Each sachet is around £6 a pop, but depending on your hair length you can get away with eking them out for a few more runs. I like to use before an important event or once to twice a month to keep hair glass-like shiny.

Larry King Flyaway With Me Set, £19 at Harvey Nichols

So simple but so effective, this handy duo combines Larry King’s A Social Life For Your Hair finishing cream with a little wooden brush. Simply apply a little of the cream and use the brush to tame any flyaways, baby hairs or spit hairs caused from over-styling. When it’s super hot and you can’t entertain the idea of hair down, it’s also great for creating the perfect, slick-back pony or bun.

For those with fine but frizzy hair, Briogeo’s milky leave-in spray will help to tame flyaways without adding a load of heavy product. Its blend of rosehip, coconut and argan oil has been formulated into a lightweight spray that will add nourishment to parched hair and make it more manageable.

Plus, it can be used on dry or wet hair – ideal for taking in your beach bag to help comb through dried out, sandy locks.

Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray, £26 available at M&S

The closest thing you’ll get to a Brazilian blow-dry at home, Color Wow’s Supernatural Spray is essentially an anti-humidity cloak for your hair. Spray it onto damp hair, blow-dry and it will leave each strand with a silky soft texture, slay humidity and protect against frizz.

The smart technology requires heat to activate the ingredients so a blow-dry is a must. If, like me, you aren’t great with the hairdryer it will leave curly and unruly hair a lot more manageable between washes.

Philip KinglseySwimcap Water Resistant Mask, £19 available at M&S

This has long been a hot weather must-have for me and I wouldn’t even dream of going on holiday without one. Essentially it’s a deep conditioning treatment that you put on before getting in the sea, sun or pool, protecting it from the hot weather, stopping your hair going straw like, and once you rinse it out, it’s leaves it super soft and nourished. It was originally developed for the American Olympic synchronised swimming team to perk up their chlorine ravished hair so you can rest assured it will keep your hair in good condition and your colour fresh. Clever stuff.
