Products on trial: Rainproof your hair

Four steps to easy autumn hair (that’s even rainproof!)

Step away from the straighteners: this autumn it’s all about going au naturel.


This season we’re being encouraged to embrace our natural hair texture, which is great news for our stressed-out tresses as we can give them a well-deserved break from heat styling tools.

It’s also perfect timing because, when autumn brings with it wind and rain, any perfectly crafted ’dos swiftly turn into birds nests as soon as we’ve stepped out of the door.

So instead you can let your hair do its own thing, using a few gentle products to help it along its way.

Get back to basics

Over time, our hair can become clogged with heavy styling products, leaving it limp and dull. To embrace your natural locks, it’s important to use a simple shampoo and conditioner that’s not crammed with chemicals.

Recommended: Herbal Essences Clearly Naked collection offers clean, soft and luscious hair while containing zero parabens, silicones or dyes, leaving your hair at its natural best.

Don’t wash and go

You should only wash your hair every two or three days so you’re not stripping your tresses of their natural oils. To keep it looking fresh, give it a gentle brush and then spray the roots with Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo before working it through with your fingers, leaving your hair with a gently tousled look.

Keep it light

Recommended: If you must use a styling product to keep fly-aways in check, make it a lightweight spray such as the Pantene Pro-V Lightweight Nourishment spray. Those with thick curly hair can use a light anti-frizz serum.

If you get caught in the rain

The beauty with the natural look is that the rain shouldn’t affect it too much. However, it can leave your hair looking lank and frizzy, so reboot your locks with Aussie Frizz Miracle Recharge Spray.

“Carry some in your bag or office drawer,” recommends Beauty Editor Annabel Jones. “Spray a little into the lengths and blow dry – even if that’s under a hand dryer. This leave-in conditioner contains Ginseng for energy which refreshes tired looking hair instantly.”

I have had so many products for my hair. I have very fine & thin hair and what ever I seem to try these days just don't help anymore. Once I have washed it and do what I can with it because once it is washed and I have dried it it's ok I get some lift and bounce then a hours later it's gone. I would love to find something that will work. Some products I have used have been great for a while I am really pleased with it after a while it's gone.

I'm a big fan of the natural look - not least my hair goes "au naturel" no matter what I try to do with it. However, having masses of wavy hair that's really fine in texture, I find i need to put in a leave in conditioner every day even though i only wash it a couple of times a week - it makes all the difference to keep hair soft and flowing rather than wirey, frizzy and liek a birdsnest.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try Always Discreet. I feel more comfortable now and even my family and friends have been able to talk openly about this. I can now play with my boys on the trampoline without worrying now, it's all the simple things I couldnt/wouldn't do before but now I can. Thank you x
