Our pick of the products you need to achieve the perfect head of hair

We can’t all look as good as Andrea Pirlo, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give it a go. With the right products in your cabinet there’s no reason why you too shouldn’t be able to toss your bag over your shoulder with the air of a man who knows his hair is looking fine.

Tame curls
Shea Moisture SuperFruit
Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Shampoo, £10

Americans have been loving this range for years, and it’s now finally available here. Originally developed for afro hair, its intensely moisturising ingredients also work well on curly hair, which tends to be brittle and break easily.

Add volume
Aveda Thickening Tonic
Styling Spray, £19.99

Some styling products, such as gels and pomades, can be heavy and weigh hair down making it look instantly flat or greasy. But this amazing spray attacks each individual hair at the roots, plumps it up and makes it fatter, giving you a proper, serious, thick mane. It lasts for ages, too.

Style without grease
Kiehl’s Creative Cream Wax, £16
Totally worthy of its cult following, this wax is suitable for all hair types, and creates texture and hold with no shine. The instantly absorbed natural ingredients are good if you have greasy hair, or haven’t washed it for a week.

Treat flakiness
Jack Black Nourishing Hair & Scalp Conditioner, £16.95
Glossy hair starts with a healthy scalp. This ultra-lightweight conditioner works to keep hair shiny and hydrated and also reduces itching and dryness, which often lead to a flaky scalp. The basil leaf extract smells tasty too.
