How many times have you gone out and bought a new hair product only to get it home and never use it? Yes, us too! But there's a few products we've put in the bathroom cupboard and then actually taken out again. These are the products are editors' see as hairstyling staples, so you can us trust us when we say they work! Try them! Let's go.
It's all about the locks this week on POPSUGAR Australia Beauty. Winter hair can sometimes, well, suck, but it doesn't have to! A bit of TLC is important right now, so book in a night to pamper yourself and make your mane feel loved. Protein hair treatments might seem a little wacky, but they so good for strengthening strands and restoring hair to its best possible state — epecially if you colour your hair. We've got some favourites, all at differing price points.
If you ask a beauty team what shampoo they use, chances are it'll be a different one each week! But we all have firm favourites we go back to in times of need, and that's really what this week's editors' picks is all about. The hair on the heads of the POPSUGAR team is pretty diverse — from thin and straight to thick and unruly. We're also very aware of the chill in the air, and that means dry hair. Yep, it's also treatment time! Find our top picks for strand cleansing inside.
We've got one Sugar fresh-off-the-plane from Mexico, another newly entering the rejuvenating world of facials, and one considering a drastic haircut. We couldn't be more excited — it's all about The Chop right now. Our beauty editor smells like an actual lady (she usually opts for a man scent, you see), and our celebrity editor is taking her love for Chloé perfume to pint-sized heaven. Click through.

You only need three ingredients.

Here are five fab finds that'll do the job and restore moisture (and with it, that salon-worthy shine) in no time.
