    1. This flexible drain cleaner, which will pull all those tresses from your shower.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Anyone with super long hair knows that luscious locks can mean super clogged drains. Clear your plugs out with this (grossly satisfying) hair clog tool, which reviewers say is super fast and effective.

    Price: £9.84.

    2. This shampoo hose attachment, which you can put on your taps to get a hairdresser's basin at home.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    It can be really hard to get to your scalp if you've got loads and loads of hair, and normal shower heads don't always cut it. I love this attachment, which gives me a hairdresser experience without having to step outside.

    Price: £11.25.

    3. Some coil hair ties, because heavy ponytails pull on your scalp.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    If you tie your long hair up often, you've probably noticed that it can be a bit uncomfortable. That's because the weight of your 'do is pulling your hair at the roots, which can lead to discomfort and breakage (no thanks). These Invisibobbles are great for distributing the pressure from your ponytail, which helps to stop breakage and evens out those kinks normal hair ties sometimes give.

    Price: £5.95 for a pack of three.

    4. A boar bristle hair brush, which distributes oil from your scalp evenly throughout your hair.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Everyone with long hair knows the struggle of having oily roots and super dry ends. This boar bristle brush helps to distribute oil evenly, and it's got frizz-reducing and anti-breakage properties too.

    Price: £9.99.

    5. This really hydrating argan oil hair mask, perfect for parched ends.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The longer hair gets, the harder it can be to nourish it. This hair mask is really hydrating, and it's great for dyed hair too! Customers say it smells great, and folks love how soft and moisturised it leaves their hair.

    Price: £9.98.

    6. Keep your hair away from your face while you're putting on makeup or washing your face with these handy bands.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    I'm def guilty of covering my hair with foundation and/or soapy water during my beauty routine, and the longer your hair is, the harder it can be to save it from liquids. These hair bands are a life saver, and because they're made of terry cloth, they'll be super comfy too!

    Price: £5.99 for a pack of three.

    7. Some Kérastase shampoo, specifically designed for strengthening long hair.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Kérastase is a salon-quality brand, and its length-strengthening shampoo is literally made for keeping long hair strong. It's fab for fine hair, long hair, bleached hair, or just hair that needs a bit of a boost!

    Price: £17.89.

    8. Some satin scrunchies, which are cute and helpful.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Satin doesn't grab your hair the way that normal hair ties do, and because it's so smooth, the material doesn't cause friction or frizz, either. Plus, these scrunchies give us really pretty '90s vibes, and they come in packs of 21!

    Price: £6.99 for a pack of 21.

    9. Some hair sectioning clips (drying your hair all the way through can be an ordeal without them.)

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Drying long hair should be considered an Olympic sport. It takes forever, and just when you think you're done, you realise there's a giant damp patch right behind your ear (the worst feeling.) These clips section your hair, which can help make the drying process a bit easier.

    Price: £5.29 for a pack of 12.

    10. And while we're on the topic, this super absorbent microfibre turban is really useful for drying your hair too.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    If you just want to get all of that wet hair out of your face for a bit, this drying turban is great. It absorbs moisture quickly because of its microfibre material, and the button fastener means it stays securely on your head too!

    Price: £7.95.

    11. Long hair can be a pain to style, so save some time with these extra strong slides.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Because these slides are curved, they can grip a bit tighter than the normal kind. Reviewers love how well they work in their thick hair and how strong the clips are!

    Price: £7.99 for a pack of 10.

    12. This detangling brush for when your hair has gone through it.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The more hair you have, the more there is to knot and tangle (I should know). This Tangle Teezer is really helpful for getting knots out of your hair without yanking your tresses and hurting your scalp.

    Price: £7.95.

    13. A handheld vacuum cleaner, because long hair gets everywhere.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Hair gets everywhere when it's long, and it can be really annoying. Save yourself from strand-covered surfaces with this handheld vacuum cleaner, which customers say has great suction power. It's cordless too, which is really handy!

    Price: £28.99.
