Everyone wants bouncy, healthy hair…the kind that looks like it should be in a shampoo commercial. With the following products, it’s possible! No matter your hair type – straight, wavy, coarse or curly – there’s something for you. Keep reading for ten hydrating, nourishing products that will leave you with impossibly shiny, silky hair.
ALTERNA Bamboo Beach Sunshine Spray: Beach days may still be far away, but this new hair mist by ALTERNA is limited edition so stock up now. It’s the perfect thing to keep in your bag for your next tropical vacation. The hair mist eliminates frizz, while adding lots of shine and protecting your hair from harmful UV rays. While combatting fly-aways, it also protects your hair from the effects of pool and saltwater. ($22)
Vernon Francois Light Weight~Styling Serum: You can use this styling serum on hair post-shower, or use it on dry hair for a little boost. Run the product through your hair to detangle, protect from heat, reduce frizz and add a glossy finish. The best part is this serum is so lightweight that it works on all hair types, from straight to the curliest of curly. ($32)
Drybar Whiskey Fix Styling Paste: If you love the look of ponytails and top-knots, but can’t seem to tame your pesky fly-aways, you need this paste by Drybar. Rub a dollop of this paste between your hands, and work it evenly through dry hair before creating your hairstyle. It provides a strong (but never crunchy or stiff) hold. It’s infused with natural beeswax to provide flexibility, while blue agave nectar nourishes your hair. ($27)
Earth’s Nectar Hair Gloss: If your hair’s looking less-than-vibrant, spritz this through it for an instant refresh. It will leave you with covetable shiny, silky hair. The formula has coconut and monoi oils to provide deep moisture. Use it every morning for hair that looks hydrated and healthy all day long. ($18.50)
Phyto Secret de Nuit Intense Hydration Regenerating Night Cream: Don’t you just love products that do all the work while you’re sleeping?! This night cream by Phyto will replenish and nourish your hair overnight. Apply it to dry or damp hair before bed. The luxe formula is infused with black orchid extract, macadamia oil and more to provide intense hydration and moisture. ($40)
Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-Wash: ‘Co-wash’ formulas (which don’t foam and lather), rather than typical shampoos, are so nourishing and hydrating that you usually don’t need to follow it up with conditioner afterwards. Briogeo’s avocado and quinoa version leaves hair so silky that it makes for easy detangling, no matter the hair type. It’s safe to use on dyed hair – and can even help extend the life of a color treatment. It’s also perfect for those with chemically-treated hair. ($32)
DevaCurl Frizz-Free Volumizing Foam: If you have curly hair, DevaCurl should be your holy grail brand. Their products are revolutionary, and this volumizing foam is no exception. Scrunch the foam into wet curls, focusing on your roots for extra volume. It will eliminate any sign of frizz, add major volume and provide shine that will last until your next wash. Plus, it smells like an invigorating mix of lemon and lime. ($26)
Verb Hydrating Mask: There’s nothing like a hair mask to make you instantly feel like you’re at a spa. (Beauty tip: Kill two birds with one stone by applying a face mask at the same time!) After washing your hair with shampoo, work this Verb mask through damp hair. Let it sit for five to seven minutes, then rinse. It will add shine and softness to any hair type, plus restore color-treated, over-styled strands. Use it once a week for a little hair rehabilitation. ($14)
Christophe Robin Intense Regenerating Balm with Rare Prickly Pear Oil: This multi-use hair balm really does it all. While it’s mainly for hair, it can also be used to nourish and moisturize your body, lips, hands and feet. Work a bit of the product through damp hair for a tousled, messy look. Rub a small amount of the product through your hair, then apply it to tame any frizz or fly-aways. Men can also use it on their beards for a boost of hydration. ($60)
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer: You prime your face before makeup, so why wouldn’t you prime your hair before styling?! This Bumble and Bumble primer protects and conditions your hair to make the styling process quicker and easier. It detangles and softens hair, while taming frizz and protecting hair from heat damage. It can also be used as a leave-in conditioner: spritz it all over wet hair, then pull it back into a low bun or braids. Open it up a few hours later to super-soft, shiny hair. ($28)
