For soft, manageable, beautiful strands, it's important to choose the best leave-in conditioner for your hair type. A good leave-in conditioner can help detangle strands, reduce fly-aways, tame frizz and keep curls soft and smooth; a leave-in conditioner that's too heavy can weigh it down or leave it looking greasy.
The best shampoos won't make your hair feel dry, brittle or unhealthy. Instead, a great shampoo has the power to transform your hair and even make your hairstyles look better, no matter if you have straight hair, curly hair or somewhere in between. We scoured the shampoo reviews in our database to find the very best shampoos — here, the ones our readers swear give them the soft, shiny, manageable hair of their dreams.
When we don't have the time and/or energy to wash our hair, we can always count on our trusty dry shampoo to keep us from going out in public looking like a greasy mess. The hero product has saved many a bad hair day situation, so the idea that it could actually be hurting our hair and scalp is something we simply don't want to believe. Read on as we investigate the pros and cons of dry shampoo, once and for all.
Winter is notoriously drying, and it can leave your hair looking a bit on the dull side. But since spring is right around the corner, it's officially time to bring your mane back to life. With the right hair products, you can undo the effects of winter — and add some major shine to your strands. Here, we've rounded up our favorite shine-enhancing products to reboot your hair this spring.
As the start of spring draws near, you're probably dreaming of a fresh new cut or an exciting new hair color to welcome the warmer weather. No matter how short or bright you go, it's important to have the right products on hand to help maintain your new look. And while there are definitely some go-to hair products we all rely on, a host of ingenious new options have already launched this year. Read on for 11 new hair products that will definitely help you start spring with a bang.
Changing your hair color is a great way to freshen up your look for a new season and rainbow hair colors like rose gold remain popular choices. But let's be real: Heading to the salon for a trendy dye job is expensive and time-consuming. After all, shades like rose gold and pastel mint fade fast, so you're looking at regular touch-ups. Luckily, there is a solution and it involves minimal effort (or money) from you. We're talking about temporary hair color sprays.
We all love getting pampered at the salon, but when we're trying to save a few bucks, only the best at-home hair color products will do. We don't want a disaster on our hands that ends up costing even more than if we'd just gone to the salon in the first place, right?
Frizzy hair does not discriminate. Whether it's winter or summer, humid as hell or painfully dry, it affects everyone — no matter what type of hair you happen to have. Gaining control over those pesky flyaways and unwanted horizontal volume takes some practice, patience, and yes, some kickass products. But do you need to spend oodles on said products? According to the three celebrity hairstylists we spoke to, the answer is a resounding, "Nah." Here are some of their favorite frizz-fighting hair products... and not a single one will give you sticker shock.
There are few things more key in life than a good hair tie. Those little black elastics have been a permanent fixture on our wrists for years now: Dependable and always ready to swoop in and save the day whenever you need to get your hair out of your face.
If you thought tangled and dry locks were only a summer issue, think again: Damaged hair knows no season and if you're noticing split, frayed ends, it's a telltale sign you need to give your hair more TLC. Often caused by pollution, extreme weather conditions, and heat styling, split ends are all but inevitable — unless your beauty cabinet is stocked with the right products to treat and prevent them, of course.
Feeling that seasonal urge to switch your hair color? It's all about cool, deep shades of brunette for winter, warm mahoganies for fall, honeyed highlights in summer — you know the drill. And now, in the early months of 2019, it's time for something entirely different: Bright white, to be specific.
Look, it happens to the best of us: Even when you're trying to stay organized, the hair products can start to pile up. It's those hairsprays that are pretty good (you know, not as good as your favorite, but too good to be thrown out). That fancy conditioner that you never use (but cost $30 so you feel guilty about trashing it). The heat protectant spray you save for "special occasions" (even though you haven't blow dried your hair in years). Sometimes it piles up so fast, it almost feels as if it's somehow procreating.
Frequent heat styling (not to mention color touch-ups!) can leave your locks feeling brittle and lifeless. And while a good chop can definitely help, it's also wise to rev up your hair care game and invest in some restorative and strengthening products. Seriously, the right products can leave your ends feeling as good as new: Silky, shiny, soft... the whole nine yards.
Last year, the top hair color trends were all about edgy, ashy blondes and gorgeous copper tones. And while many techniques will carry over to this year, expert colorists predict that dark pigments, hair ribbons and golden blonde tones will reign supreme in 2019.
Dreary cold weather doesn't just impact our skin, wardrobe choices and moods. It also can do a number on our hair. Frigid temperatures can turn the silkiest locks into dry, straggly, frizzy messes that no amount of shine serum can fix. Strands need more than a temporary smoothing out. They need moisture and they need it desperately. And hair masks provide ample nourishment to dry ends and colored strands.
Have you ever used a hair water before? If not, allow us to introduce you to your new best friend. It's a magical substance, closer to water than hairspray (yet generally still imbued with some of the same frizz-taming qualities of the latter) — and it's basically your best bet for breathing new life into a dead hairstyle.
As someone who has done a lot of interviews with celebrity hairstylists (so many interviews), I can attest that there are a ton of products involved in the looks that strut down the runway or show up in magazine shoots and red carpet moments. I can also tell you that every single stylist has one product in their kit that they would sooner stay home than show up to a set or location without. It's pretty much their secret weapon.
With all the hair products currently on the market, it's no wonder so many of them are all the same: Shampoos that cleanse, conditioners that hydrate, curling irons that curl. Luckily, there are some innovative brands out there that are changing the game when it comes to hair products. They're thinking outside the box and creating some incredibly unique products that do more than the competitors in their product category.
Fact: I love beer. It's my go-to drink at just about every outing, from sports games to concerts to birthday parties. My tastes have changed since I first started drinking the stuff in college, though. I now enjoy sipping flavorful craft beers in quiet bars rather than downing light beers during games of beer pong.
Long hair is gorgeous but taking care of it is no easy task. The longer it is, the heavier and more difficult it gets to manage and keep split ends at bay. Yes, maintaining a healthy, shiny mane definitely takes work, dedication, patience and care...but the results are totally worth it. Here are a few secrets to keep your luscious long hair looking extra fabulous.
