Confession: I used to dread wash days because they only seemed to bring me a headache. I braid my hair often, so it can be pretty sensitive and hard to detangle once I undo the braids. I would spend hours just combing through the knots and crying out in pain. Since meeting a hairstylist this summer who's familiar with my hair type and taken the time to educate me, I now know that the right products make everything a breeze. In a not-so-surprising turn of events, I've come to cherish the ritual of washing my hair. From the prewash treatment that softens it to the deep condition that nurtures it, I've learned about the products needed in each step and the purpose they serve. No matter where you are in your natural journey, I bet you'll find something from this list that will nourish your scalp and make you look forward to wash days, too. I'm finally sharing my secrets, so get ready to take notes. Related: 4 Ways to Keep Your Curly Hair Extra Healthy in the Winter

The findings from a surveillance study of 365,000 people raise a terrifying prospect – one of Britain as some sort of Narnia, where it is always winter but never Christmas. Research by Imperial College London has been key to Government policy-making on the pandemic from the off. Most famously, it was behind the modelling that persuaded Boris Johnson to order the country into full lockdown in March. The study being published now is no less significant. For months, the Government's approach to the pandemic has been predicated on the assumption that a vaccine will ultimately come to the rescue. Until then, measures can only "buy time". If successful, restrictions on liberty can push down the 'R' rate, reducing levels of infection, saving lives and preventing the NHS from becoming overwhelmed. All of this is, of course, a short-term measure with colossal costs, not just to the economy but also in lives lost from diseases other than Covid-19. Falling antibody rates But the research suggests a still more fatal flaw in the strategy – that such policies could be counting on a breakthrough that may never come. Imperial's scientists analysed the results of finger prick tests on hundreds of thousands of people to establish antibody levels in communities across England between late June and September. They found that across the country, antibody prevalence – which only reached six per cent in June – than saw a significant decline. Overall, it fell to 4.4 per cent within three months, a fall of more than one quarter. However, scientists are wrestling with major uncertainties when it comes to Covid-19. An antibody response suggests some protection against future disease, but no one knows how much.
