    Waking up to good hair can make your day. But we all know that doesn’t happen every day. More often than not, we find ourselves struggling to tame frizzy hair and straighten bed hair (you know, those annoying strands that stick out on their ends) and desperately combing through tangles in the morning. And as if things can’t get any worse, step outdoors and you’ll find the heat and humidity getting to your head – literally, turning your hair into a frizzy or even greasy mess.

    That’s why we have rounded up the best haircare products that can help manage your hair under Singapore’s weather, and make every day a good hair day. Plus, they all have fragrances that are sure to score you compliments.
