TOP DE-TANGLING TOOL
The Wet Brush, £11.99
No wonder Kendall Jenner hearts this. The special bristles make light work of a sandy, post-beach barnet and we rate the easy-grip handle. Plus, it comes in endless Instagram-friendly colourways.
MOST-LOVED MINI SHAMPOO
TRESemme Keratin Smooth Infusing Shampoo, £1.39
Housing 100ml of total mane goodness, this is one of the cheapest miniatures on the shelves. But the formula is fantastic. It tames and nourishes without weighing locks down - what holiday hair dreams are made of.
Charles Worthington Sunshine Protector Leave In Spray, £1.99
When it comes to sun-shields for barnets, we're yet to find anything that tops this classic. A fabulous travel-sized weapon, it keeps colour vibrant and strands silky. Veil over damp locks then twist into a bun or plait.
BEST SALT SPRAY
Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturizing Spray Mini, £2.19
Why waste valuable suitcase space on curling wands when you can stash away this nifty spritz? It conjures up a mermaidy, tousled effect minus any crunchy residue. Just fabulous.
WINNING DRY SHAMPOO
Richard Ward Keratin +1 Day Dry Shampoo, £5.99 (Waitrose)
We'll always have a place in our hearts for the cult Batiste Dry Shampoo - it's great for boosting texture. But this is an unsung hero. It zaps grease with a softening (almost conditioning) effect that's ideal for sun-frazzled locks.
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Forever Smooth Anti-Frizz Primer, £9.99
John Frieda's still at the top of the no-frizz game and this souped-up version of the original serum had us at 'hello.' While many products just coat the outside of strands, it gets deep inside, so fuzz is kept at bay for longer.
Garnier Ultimate Blends Mythic Olive Weightless Nourisher Balm, £4.49
Lots of hair repair masks just act like thick conditioners but this is something else. It feels ultra-luxurious (we had to triple check the price tag) and left our tresses soft and oh-so-swishy after just five minutes.
