We asked 9 beauty and fashion influencers to review only ONE hair product they literally can’t live without. “Sounds like an article I would love reading myself and can’t wait to see what the other responses are!”, said Jenny Welbourn, our first heroine.
“I use the Amika Brooklyn Blowout Spray religiously! It’s vegan and cruelty-free. I was never a huge hair product girl, usually just using a heat protectant because of years of dabbling around with awful products that made my hair sticky, stiff, and never really did what they said! When I tried this spray out I was immediately sold, and actually keep it stocked on my shelves so I never run out (I’ve probably re-purchased at least 8 times). So here is why I love it: it gives my hair the perfect volume without feeling like I have in any product at all. I like to keep things simple and this single product does so much for me. I noticed a complete difference the first time I used it and started getting so many compliments on my hair afterwards. It also gives a nice hold when styling hair and also helps strengthen and repair! Overall, it just makes my hair feel pretty and thick which I love.”
“My favorite hair product is INECTO Naturals Coconut Hair Oil. I always use a pea-sized amount to wet or towel-dried hair before blow-drying to get rid of frizziness. Coconut oil makes my hair super soft and shiny. And it’s much easier to use, when in a form of spray. Also, I use INECTO’s coconut oil before I create in depth braids or hairstyles, as it makes my hair more manageable. Needless to say, it smells amazing and I recommend giving this brand a try, especially if your hair is dry and frizzy.”
“One product I can’t get enough of is Joico’s Body Shake! It is a buildable texture spray that never gets sticky or dries out your hair. When you spray it onto dry hair, it gives instant fullness without any type of lingering residue. My hair is naturally very fine, soo love the Body Shake spray because it makes my hair feel and appear incredibly full and voluminous with minimal effort. I also love to add this to hair to create messy, textured braids! Perfect for that boho, natural look that I love!”
“The clear quartz crystal comb by Crown Works (here’s more affordable alternative). I found this comb at the beginning of my gray hair transition. Yes, it is a bit luxurious and I love it. Clear quartz is all about healing and each night I’ve created a ritual of taking my hair down, rubbing clear oil in it and gently combing out any negative energy that I may have picked up during the day. I am so grateful to now give love to my sweet strands instead of covering their vibrancy with dulling, dark hair color.”
“All blondes struggle with unwanted yellow tones. This is why my favorite hair product is Fanola purple shampoo. It helps me maintain the perfect color and add some beautiful silver shine to it. I recommend moisturising ends after using any purple shampoo, because all of them are a bit drying. All in all, no so drying as frequent color appointments. Fanola helps me prolong time between salon visits! If you don’t like purple shampoos, Fanola also makes great purple masks with the same effect.”
“I’ve been using Ouai’s Wave Spray for about 1-2 years now and it’s my go-to product. I love to try new and upcoming products out there but I haven’t strayed away from this one as it’s become a constant repurchase. I have shorter hair that I pretty much style daily by doing soft waves with my flat iron so instead of utilizing hairsprays that can weigh my hair down or just make it too sticky I started using Ouai’s Wave Spray. I love that it adds some texture to my hair and throughout the day it almost works on my side with whatever weather throws at it to keep it bouncy and wavy. I also have naturally wavy hair so throwing this in when my hair is air drying also helps give that fresh off the beach look and feel. I run out of it constantly since I use it pretty much everyday and I have at least 2 travel size bottles on hand for any traveling I am doing!”
“A hair product that I’ve been using for almost a decade and will forever repurchase is the Pantene Volume Body Boosting Mousse. I have side swept bangs, and this product makes it super easy to style and most importantly, hold its shape. I struggled with my bangs when I first got them, because they were too sleek and would just fall flat. While that’s the texture I want for the rest of my long hair, I realized I want my bangs to stay put and not be as silky in texture. This mousse doesn’t make my bangs coarse or hard in texture, and still manages to keep them in shape. I can even run my fingers through them! After I shower, I apply a pump of product to my bangs when they’re about 50% wet and later blow dry. On days when my bangs aren’t doing what I want and I’m in a rush, I’ll sometimes wet them a little, apply the mousse, and blow dry. Love this product for side swept bangs!”
“It’s a brush that gently untangles your hair while minimising damage. Since I bleached my hair, it’s been really prone to split ends and breakage. I’d tried quite a few different brushes, but none have been quite as effective as the Tangle Teezer. It’s meant that it’s much faster to style my hair in the mornings, and my hair looks a lot smoother and sleeker. There are a few different versions available, but my favourite is the Wet Detangler.”
“The protective leave-in serum from JOICO is my holy grail of healthy hair. I got this product as a gift, but I want to keep using it until it exists on the market, because it works for me. It can be very versatile, since you apply it both on wet and dry hair. I apply it against the hairdryer and flat iron, because I style my hair with heat so much. JOICO’s serum instantly makes my locks look and feel healthier. Use this in combination with the Defy Damage Shampoo & Conditioner and your hair is set for some ultimate TLC.”
