When it comes to your style (and confidence) your hair can either make you or break you. Everything else can be on fleek – your outfit, your makeup, etc. – but if your hair feels off, everything else will too. Luckily, with the right care, giving your ‘do the perfect style won’t even be hard. All you need is the right products.
Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner
Want silky locks? You need to give your hair just the right amount of conditioning. This will vary depending on the type of hair that you have, and we have some great recommendations for you! You’ll want to go heavy with thick hair (try Sudzz FX Cashmere Hydrating Shampoo and AquaFIx Hydrating Conditioner). For fine hair, go a little lighter to keep from losing too much volume (we like Milk Shake Energizing Blend Shampoo). With proper hydration, your hair will be primed and ready for flawless styling. That brings us to our next recommendation.
Every type of hair can benefit from a thickening spray or mousse. This type of product will improve your hair’s consistency and give it better hold. For thick hair, try Platinum Dry Thickening Spray. Mousse is a better option for fine hair to ensure a strong hold. We’ve had great success with Platinum Thickening Mousse.
Now that your hair is properly hydrated and primed for styling, you’ll want to use a créme. It’s a great alternative to gel that gives hair a little more hydration and reduces frizz. It can be used to blow-dry hair with a round brush or to help keep waves from going flat. Again, the type of créme you use will depend on your hair type and style. Opt for something lightweight, like Lemonade Dreamzz Volume & Shaping Crème, for straight/fine hair. If you have thicker straight hair, you’ll want to lean more toward something like Nevo Model Behavior Shaping Cream. For curly hair, we love Curalign Presto Creme Waitless Cure (everyone will be amazed by your flawless curls)!
This is simply a must-have product for finishing touches on your hairstyle and, of course, to help keep it in place. A flexible hairspray will give you extra power for taming frizz and can even be used as a thermal protectant when you want to add a curling iron to the mix. One of our favorites for all hair types is DevaCurl’s Flexible Hold Hairspray Touchable Finishing Styler.
Last but not least is a relatively new product to hit the shelves of salons everywhere, and it encompasses a variety of formulas for every hair type. Dry shampoo and conditioner, salt spray, and texturizing spray all fall under this category. Basically, it is anything that allows you to style second-day hair by absorbing oils and giving your strands a little oomph. Running late to work? Tackle grease with Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo. Of course, your hair doesn’t have to be dirty to benefit from these products! Give your hair more volume and movement with a texture spray like Pureology Highlight Stylist Sea-Kissed Texturizer.
