Hair products are best when they reduce steps rather than add to your routine. We like these nine new products for their simplicity and the lovely looks they help create.
Ecru NY acacia
If you have treated your hair like the jerk that it so often is, it’s probably time to give your tresses some much-needed TLC. The acacia protein masque from Ecru NY restores beauty, strength and health to damaged hair in one quick treatment. (Ecru NY, $25)
This texturizing spray from Oribe works similar to a dry shampoo to extend your style, but it also adds the benefit of volume and texture so your hair won’t look flat and sad on day two post-shower (not that you ever wait two days between showers). And to quote Penny from Happy Endings, it smells ah-maaaazing. (Oribe, $39)
Living Proof Prime
Let’s be honest: Salon blowouts are the best, but daily blow drying is tedious. And with the pending arrival of summer, nothing is worse than blowing hot air at your face when it’s already 95 degrees outside. Living Proof’s new style-extending product promises to make your style last twice as long so you can space out your blow dries and save yourself some precious time and energy. (Sephora, $20)
Original & Mineral Detox shampoo and conditioner
This delightful duo of clarifying shampoo and conditioner is a recent import from the Land Down Under and just now became available in the U.S. The products are all natural and remove buildup without stripping hair of natural oils. (Original & Mineral, $29 each)
