Every once in a while, an earth-shattering beauty epiphany hits us, making us question everything. An ‘aha’ moment of epic, aesthetic proportions, if you will. Today that realisation came courtesy of legendary celebrity and session hairstylist, Wendy Iles, who has worked her hair magic on countless campaigns and celebrities from Heidi Klum and Chrissy Tiegan to Marion Cotillard.

“So many women with long hair don’t know how to use conditioner,” she says. “Most people put it at the roots and forget about the problem areas and the ends, which need nourishing the most.”

Iles says stashing a wide-tooth comb in your shower is the secret to smoother strands. “Use a comb when you use conditioner, it’s such a simple thing but one so many people forget! Combing through will help distribute the conditioner from root to tip and smooth each strand in the direction of the cuticle, which means softer, glossier hair later on.”

Iles’ own conditioner formula has a cult following, with Gigi Hadid’s hairstylist, Kenna Kennor claiming he uses it on her supermodel strands. Comb through these six frizz-fighting conditioners for smoother, shinier strands now.
