Top Hair & nail Products
Not every shampoo is for everyone, so it's hard to select just one must-have hair product. Aussie Opposites Attract Shampoo has a fresh scent that's sweet but not overpowering and leaves your hair soft and clean, but not stripped of it's natural oils. If you have color-treated hair, Redken Color Extend Shampoo is a terrific option. It cleans your hair, while extending the life and shine of your hair color.
Best dry shampoo
Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder ($35) is more than just a dry shampoo. It also adds fullness and volume to your hair and comes in several shades tinted to match your hair color. Simply spray on your roots or hair directly, let it dry and then shake out the excess. We love how good this product is at absorbing oil - especiallyhelpful if you have to miss a day or two of washing.
Best daily conditioner
For a gentle, daily conditioner that doesn't weigh hair down we choose Neutrogena Clean Replenishing Conditioner ($5). Affordable and effective we love how soft and manageable it leaves our locks.
Best leave-in conditioner
For tangled, dried out, unmanageable hair, Infusium 23 Leave In Treatment ($10) is a lifesaver. It instantly fortifies your hair, leaving it nourished and shiny.
There are a lot of frizz-fighters on the market in the forms of gel, liquid, spray and serum. John Frieda Frizz-Ease Original Formula Hair Serum ($6) protects hair against heat damage, reduces frizzies, softens the hair and adds shine. You only need to use a little bit to instantly see results.
Best style cream
Shu Uemura Art of Hair Shape Paste ($33) allows you to shape and define your hair into sculpted styles without being too stiff or sticky. They also offer a fabulous finishing spray and other terrific hair products in their line.
A favorite for years among stylists, Kenra Volume Spray 25 ($6 - $25) offers super control and hold without being stiff. It will hold any style all day and it's humidity-resistant.
Best curl enhancer
To keep your curls looking beautiful, try Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer ($19). On the other end of the spectrum, if you want silky, straight, shiny hair, check out Kiehl's Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream ($17).
Best at-home hair color
Good hair color actually can come in a box. L'Oréal Paris Feria ($10) multi-faceted shimmering colour offers shiny, vibrant colors with terrific undertones. Try Chocolate Cherry or any number of other fantastic shades.
Best nail polish
OPI Nail Lacquer ($10) in "Fiercely Fabulous" is a fantastic true red that goes with just about everything. It's not too orange or too dark. It's a beautiful, bold red and the color really lasts.
Best fast-drying nail polish
For ladies on the go, try Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish ($4). It offers coverage in one coat and it truly dries fast. The colors are vibrant and glossy.
