Protecting your hair from the harsh winter elements can be tricky at best, but we’ve got you covered. Think of us like cuddly pals who are strangely obsessed with keeping your hair flawless in winter. 

From static frizz to brittle split ends, there are all kinds of reasons why Christmas season wreaks havoc on hair. 

Hat-head aftermath and cashmere-caused static are two major culprits, but applying heat to your locks from blow-drying wet hair also leads to trouble in hair paradise.

"How do I go from Coldilocks to Snow Queen this Christmas?", we hear you ask. 

Introducing our cheat sheet for your winter hair:

1. DON’T leave your house with wet hair, this is a one way trip to Flu Land. Wet hair can also break easily if it’s frozen from the drop in temperature, just don’t do it gals.

2. Try to keep a balanced temperature in your home so you don’t have massive shocks when you leave the house or come in from work: this can irritate both your skin and scalp.

3. Turn the hot water in your shower down just a tad, your hair will thank you later.

In the winter, we all crave scalding hot showers to allow our bodies to regulate its temperature after spending all day in the cold, but hot water isn’t good for your hair, it actually dehydrates it.

By keeping it just above lukewarm, you’ll prevent having dry skin and scalp. Keep the moisture in your mane, huns.

To prevent those precious oils from escaping, we recommend Argan oil products. Acure Organics Moroccan Argan Oil has ingredients like buckthorn oil and pumpkin seed oil, which are both rich in fatty acids for retaining moisture.

4. Coconut oil is also renowned for treating dry and brittle hair in winter. Use 100% organic coconut oil from your local health foods shop and spot the difference in time for Santa to make it down the chimney.

5. John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7-Day Treatment targets deflated hair fibres—plumping them up for days, some say it even lasts a week. John Frieda, you Christmas angel.

6. Use heat protection before blow drying your hair, try Tresemmé Keratin Smooth 7 Day System Heat Activated Treatment. It’s heat-activated, which means the substance is offering a semi-permanent solution to that crown of stray hairs. MAGICAL.

There you are ladies, use this cheat sheet to defy the elements this winter and you'll have the best hair in the North Pole. Guaranteed. 


Scottish gym owner Anton Danyluk has hinted that Love Island winners Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea won't last on the outside, because the Irish charmer is "too nice for her".

The 24-year-old was over the moon to see Amber win the show with Greg, who was only in the villa for 12 days before he walked away with his half of the £50,000 cash prize.

Speaking to Heat magazine, Anton hinted Greg could almost be too good to be true;

"He's a genuinely nice guy and Amber's been through everything in there and I'm so happy for her to finally find someone who is perfect for her."

He added; "But I think he might be too nice for her, that's the problem."

Amber had a tumultuous time in the villa after Michael Griffiths dumped her for Joanna Chimonides after Casa Amor, speaking badly of her behind her back.

Luckily, Greg arrived just before the end of the series and swept Amber off her feet with his charm. Anton commented: "It's so refreshing that it's went on a different journey".

He added; "Usually it's couples that couple up at the start they go right through to the end loved up.

"Whereas Amber's gone on this mad journey she's been through her ups and her downs and then Greg's come in at the end – lovely guy – and I'm really happy for them."

The Scotsman couldn't help but laugh about how the rugby player won £25,000 after only two weeks in the villa; "Greg honestly what a guy. He completed Love Island didn't he?"


A post shared by Greg O’Shea (@gregoshea) on

"He came in for two weeks, 25 grand better off. He found love and had a two week holiday, what more could you do?"

Anton coupled up with Belle Hassan on the show, and was asked to predict which partnership will be the first to end outside of the villa.

Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, who were runners up on the hit ITV show, are going strong and remain the only official boyfriend/girlfriend couple.

He replied: "When it comes to the outside it's going to be so difficult for everyone."

"Everyone is busy, there's the distance obviously involved as well and going from seeing each other 24 hours a day to maybe seeing each other once or twice a week. If you want it to work it'll work."

How could anyone break up with Greg?! Or Amber?! We're praying to the Goddess of Love Aphrodite that they work out.

We are LOVING the scorcher that is heading our way this week.

As temperatures are set to rise, we are starting to contemplate how to get our pale skin to go brown, rather than red.

However, there is another hazard that the unfamiliar summer heat is bringing and you probably have it in your room.

The Dublin Fire Brigade took to Twitter to highlight the danger of mirrors, crystals and glasses kept beside windows.

Time to move the aerosols away as they can explode if exposed to the heat.

The video shows the damage caused as a result of a vanity mirror left in a window.

They issued a reminder to move everything into the shade and to keep in mind that the sun moves around as the day draws on.

The firefighters highlighted the need to stay well hydrated during the heatwave.

We should be gulping down at least 2.5 litres a day!

Excuse us while we run home, grab a bottle of water and make sure everything is in the shade! 


It's been a gloriously hot few days, but sometimes your skin can take a turn for the worse after too much sun exposure.

Here are a few quick and easy remedies for sunburn that we'll be needing if this glorious weather continues. 

7. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a key ingredient when it comes to saving searingly hot skin. 

The plant is an herbal remedy that has been used for thousands of years in ancient and modern medicine for a variety of conditions, including sunburn. 

You can snap a stalk off the plant itself and apply the gel, or seek out an after sun product with the ingredient. 


6. Hydration station 

If you get really burnt, you need to replenish your body with liquids.

Water is your best friend at this point, 

5. Cool yoghurt

Applying cool (but not cold) yoghurt to red-hot skin causes a natural cooling sensation to bring some relief to your painful skin.

Rinse off with cool water and pat skin dry afterwards.

4. Cool teabags

Fell asleep in the sun and burnt your eyelids?

Try placing two cool, drained but moist teabags over them.

The tannic acid in black tea can reportedly help draw heat from sunburned skin, and aid in restoring the pH balance according to Medicine Net. 

3. Witch Hazel

Remember the stuff you used to dab on teenage spots?

Well witch hazel is said to have long-lasting anti-inflammatory relief, according to Fredric Haberman, MD. 

Apply little ad often for some sweet sweet relief. 

2. Avoid soap

While you're in your cool shower seeking some relief for your burnt skin, resist the urge to reach for the soap to cleanse your skin. 

The suds in the soap can cause further dryness in already scorched skin and lead to higher levels of irritation. 

1. After sun, after sun, after sun

If all else fails, then slathering yourself with some hydrating after sun is the only way to go. 

If you're not up for emptying the contents of your fridge in pursuit of a cure, then a handy bottle of after sun can be the only saviour.

Turning on the heat can be pricey – not to mention not particularly good for the environment either.

But for the days that you just can’t get cosy, or for the friend who NEVER seems to be warm (they know who they are) thesun.co.uk today has some great tips for achieving a satisfactory level of toastiness WITHOUT having to constantly crank up the thermostat…

Suffice to say, SHEmazing! is a big fan of ALL of the below…


1) Watch TV

The heat given off by home appliances such as the TV and fridge could be enough to keep the house warm if you have decent insulation, experts say.

Indeed, according to Max Fordham, a leading engineering consultant, effective insulation could keep houses warm all year round – making central heating only necessary on the very coldest days.


2) Make flowerpot heaters

Ditch the expensive electric heater and make your own DIY version using just a few candles and a flowerpot.

These nifty, home-made devices can hit more than 80C and take just five minutes to make. Warning – make sure you buy terracotta and NOT plastic pots.


3) DIY draught excluder

It’s not just chimneys that let in chilly draughts – windows and doors are also a hotspot for cold air seeping into your house.

“Sausage dog” draught insulators can be rested at the bottom of doors and windows to stop heat escaping from the room.


4) Block up your chimney

Having fireplaces that are just for decoration is common in many households now, and if you’re not using yours make sure you fit a chimney balloon or insulator.

Costing less than €30, the balloon will keep warm air in the house and stop a draught coming in down the chimney.


5) Cover bare floorboards

Putting rugs down and covering up bare floorboards can reduce heat loss by up to 10 percent.


6) Close curtains

One of the easiest ways to keep a room warm and stop cold air flooding in from outside is to close curtains and trap it out. Pulling the curtains can reduce heat loss from 15-17 percent and save you bundles of cash on the central heating bill.

Wooden flooring causes a lot of heat loss, so if you don’t have carpets one of the simplest ways of heating up a room is to lay down rugs and blankets.


7) Let sunlight in

While closing the curtains will keep warm air in, it’s also important to leave them open during the day so the sunlight can warm up the room.

Closing the curtains as soon as dusk falls will maximise your house’s potential to retain the heat it’s generated from daylight – even if it’s cold outside!


8) Strategically place shelves

Putting a shelf above a radiator, especially if you have high ceilings, can help channel warmth throughout the room.

While putting a shelf above a radiator helps spread heat, putting things on the radiator will trap warm air and stop it spreading to the room.




Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have reached a settlement in their high court case against the European edition of Heat magazine.

The case was settled in a Dublin court after Bauer Consumer Media – who publish Heat – apologised to the Hollywood actors for an article published in September which questioned Justin’s fidelity: “The article was based on an unfounded report regarding Justin Timberlake’s alleged behaviour at a club following a performance in Paris … the defendant accepts that the article was false and withdraw any interferences that questioned the state of Justin and Jessica’s marriage.”

However, the couple also issued a warning through their lawyer saying they will not hesitate to take similar legal action if claims about their marriage are made again: “The couple will not be making any further comment in relation to this matter but will not hesitate to take similar legal action if false allegations regarding the state of their marriage are repeated.”



After arriving into the office with humidity hair and sweaty faces yet again, the SHEmazing! girls have decided enough is enough! We've worked tirelessly to compile the ultimate list of tips and products to make you look 'Hot but not hot' while the temperatures soar.


Conditioner: The sun is going to frazzle your hair, so treat it to a strong conditioner each time you wash it. This will keep your locks in good condition, while helping them resist the humidity.

Salt spray: If your hair is very fine, it’s likely to go limp in the heat. Salt spray is a great way to boost volume and texture, while giving you beach-worthy waves. Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturing Spray is one of our favs!

Cover up: If your hair refuses to behave or is getting greasy too quickly, you can’t go wrong with a classic wide-brimmed hat, paired with Audrey Hepburn shades. A pretty scarf wrapped around your head will also do the trick.


Stay safe: Nothing says ‘sweaty mess’ quite like lobster skin – and let’s not even start with the health implications! Make sure to apply a top-notch sunscreen to all exposed skin. Ambre Solaire Protection Lotion (SPF30) is a go-to for us, although we swear by Ambre Solaire Dry Mist (SPF50) if we’re heading down to the beach.

Banish scales: With bare arms and legs on show, make sure your skin is in tip-top condition by regularly exfoliating during showers. The healthier your skin is, the nicer your tan and the healthier your glow.


Waterproof eyes: No sooner does the sun appear then your perfectly applied eye make-up smudges and runs, giving you drunk-girl panda eyes. Combat this by investing in good waterproof products, such as Rimmel’s Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Liner and Benefit’s BADgal Waterproof Mascara.

Peach blush: In all that heat, your skin is going to be prone to redness, so you need to stay far away from red-tinted hues. Peach blush suits all skin tones and will give you a fresh glow.

No more sweat: A freshening spray like Urban Decay's All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray is the perfect way to cool your face down when you're feeling flushed. As well as setting your make-up, it makes your it super resistant to heat and humidity.

Now make this list your bible and be the beauty we know you are!



Heat magazine has complied a list of the 101 Hottest Hunks from across the world, and the results aren't that surprising.

Also who could forget the moment at the MTV Movie Awards where Rita Ora ripped off his shirt. Thanks Rita!

The other famous and gorgeous hunks who also made the top ten were; Tom Daley, David Beckham, Ryan Gosling and not forgetting our very own, Jamie Dornan! 




These places have some of the highest recorded temperatures ever recorded on earth – even the most avid sun-soaker wouldn’t risk tanning in these areas!

1.Death Valley, California
Located in the Mojave Desert, Death Valley is currently considered the hottest place in the world with records that reached 56.7 °C . It is both the lowest and driest area on earth. Strangely, though it is the hottest place on earth during the day, at night temperatures fall below freezing.

5. Dasht-e Lut, Iran
This area has the hottest land surface temperature which can climb to 70.7 °C though the air temperature is less than this.
