Hair extensions = dreamy locks, but the downside is that they can be a bit tiresome to look after. Thanks to Alesha Dixon, however, there’s a super-easy trick to keeping them clean and fresh. The TV personality recently shared an Insta video showing how she protects her clip-in extensions by shampooing and conditioning them inside a pair of old tights.

(Wind) breaking news: Oxford has been crowned the farting capital of Britain. Peeps in the English city let rip an average of 23 times a day, apparently, trumping folks in Leeds (22 times), Edinburgh (17 times) and Manchester (13 times). The survey also revealed that 13% of us mask our flatulence by coughing, while 35% simply move away from other people. If you’re struggling with trapped wind, consider Boots Wind Relief Tablets.

Gadgets to make you feel great have never been so clever. Just take Simplehuman Sensor Mirrors, now in store and online. They light up automatically as your face approaches and simulate natural sunlight, so you’ll know exactly what your make-up will look like when you’re out and about. Then there’s the seriously handy Mark Hill Pick ‘N’ Mix Handle. Just pop any attachment from the Mark Hill Pick N Mix range on to the barrel to switch up your style in a flash. Finally, meet the Oral B iO9 Electric Toothbrush in Black Onyx. It uses whizz-bang tech to give you seven brushing modes (gum care? tongue clean?), as well as monitoring your technique (too hard? too soft?). It’s a spa day for your pearlies!
