Our hair has been exposed to a whole hoard of nasties over the summer - fact!
Thanks to oodles of chlorine, sea salt and UV rays you'd be forgiven for thinking your locks are more lacklustre than luxe and with the colder months threatening even more damage, it's time we gave our tresses a little overhaul!
So make like the celebs and follow these top tips (which are totally purse-friendly FYI), on how to revitalize your locks in an instant. You can thank us later...
All That Glitters:
TOWIE's Lauren Pope revived the 90s-inspired hair rings trend while on holiday in Marbella earlier this year and we can't bear to part with them just yet. We're crushing over this gilded set, complete with a boho-esque feather pendant, from Regal Rose, £10.
Starting from the crown, weave your hair into a fishtail braid and use a comb to gently tug at sections of hair for a beachy, lived in feel. Then randomly dot the jazzy little hair rings into your plait, taking care to close the clasp properly. We loved this look in summer and we're just as obsessed now.
Also hot on our beauty radar are these stunning filigree hair cuffs from ASOS, £6, which will jazz up any ponytail - they'll take you from desk to dance floor in an instant all while making your locks sparkle. Just thread the hair through and close the clasp - et voila!
Channel your inner Rita Ora with a delicate headband like this gem also from ASOS. Sans garish plastic flowers and crystals it isn't too festival-y and is guaranteed to complement both up and down 'dos. At £8, it's a complete steal.
Freshen up on the go
Brand Educator and celeb hairstylist Larry King swears by the PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver Revitalising Dry Shampoo to bring dull and lank locks to life again without the need for water or a hair brush. Just use your fingers to help blend it into your roots – you'll fall in love with extra body and fresh feel it gives flagging hair.
The Heroic Duo:
Prevention is better than the cure when it comes to maintaining blonde hair. We're in love with the Touch Of Silver Brightening Shampoo and Colour Care Conditioner, £3.19 each, which promises to brighten your colour and neutralize brassy, yellow tones in just one wash!
For optimum results leave the shampoo on hair for five minutes, giving it enough time to work its toning magic before rinsing thoroughly. The result? Visibly brighter, gleaming tresses that all the celebs would be envious of.
Make like Khloe Kardashian and pop a 50p sized amount of conditioner on the ends of your hair for an intense hit of hydration as this is where the moisture is lacking. Leave it on for a few minutes while you primp and preen your body before rinsing it out and you'll notice your lengths glowing in no time.
