Perfect wedding hair requires serious TLC. Here are six of our favourite products to condition and revive your tresses in the run up to the day

Wedding ready hair is not something to leave to chance and – like skin and nails – is susceptible to the stresses that beset everyone in the run up to a big event. All hairdressers will recommend you set aside time to manage existing hair conditions, but also give your hair a little TLC. The good news is that there are lots of great products to revive, nurture and strengthen your locks, whatever their length. Here are six favourite hair heroes.

1. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

Elasticizer from Philip Kingsley is a brilliant buy for restoring both strength and texture

With the delicious scent of pomegranate and cassis, this beauty-writers’ favourite from Philip KIngsley restores texture and strength. Elasticizer is great for fine hair, adding body and volume, while coarser hair becomes sleeker and easier to manage. It’s a pre-wash treatment and you can leave it in for anything from 20 minutes to overnight. Ingredients include olive and castor oils and water – which Philip Kingsley says is essential for locking in moisture and keeping hair supple. £34;

2. Neäl & Wølf Harmony

Neäl & Wølf Harmony is enriched with argan oil

Neäl & Wølf Harmony is an intensive conditioning and repair treatment that contains argan oil and camellia seed oil. Use it like a conditioner but leave in wet hair for three to five minutes before rinsing thoroughly. There’s also a shampoo in the Harmony range. £16.75;

3. Daniel Galvin LOVE Your Hair

4. Cocosolis Hair Oil Mask 3in1

Reduce tangles, split ends and sun damage with this Cocosolis treatment

Factor in swimming and sunny weather when you are nurturing your hair. This Cocosolis Hair Oil Mask 3in1 contains eight raw organic oils. It smells of coconut milk, so good to leave in your hair if you are on the beach. Also great as an intensive pre or post shower treatment. £29;

5. Green People Intensive Repair Shampoo

This organic repair shampoo is part of a Green People intensive range

This award-winning Intensive Repair Shampoo from Green People includes green tea extract, aloe vera, rosemary and orange peel – so a treat for the senses as well as the hair. It’s designed to strengthen hair and also contains quinoa protein to help limit colour fade. There’s also a partner conditioner that can be used after your shampoo or as an intensive treatment. The price point for these organic and kind-to-scalp products is another draw. £14.50;

6. Mason Pearson hairbrush

A good quality hairbrush by Mason Pearson helps to keep hair in prime condition
