With her love of experimentation and her ability to set trends as often as she changes outfits, Rihanna is a true modern beauty icon. And if, like us, you regularly lust over the singer's incredible glossy hair, then we've got good news. Her hairstylist has revealed the top products he uses on the singer to keep her natural hair healthy and shining, and one of them is available at Boots for a mere £3. Yusef Williams told Refinery29: "Rihanna is natural — we always make her hair soft and pretty. Underneath the wigs and weaves, we are big on hair care and treatment. Rih's mom brings me hair treatments all the time... it's really important to take care of it."

Another reasonably-priced product he uses on Ri-Ri’s hair is the Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Conditioner, which is available online at Beauty bay for £13.50. He said: "Deep conditioners are imperative at all times" and explained that he likes to "put it on and let it sit under the dryer, because it really moisturises and promotes hair growth".
