7 Must-Have Transforming Hair Products
Sloppy to Sleek
The synthetic resins in Garnier Fructis Style Full Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray ($4.50; drugstores) repel water to hold your style. The spray also contains waxes (from mango seeds and lemon extract) to add shine.
Frizzy to Defined
Aveda Light Elements Texturizing Creme ($24; Aveda.com
) is infused with jojoba and soy to smooth frizz. Organic grapefruit, ginger, and mandarin oils give hair a subtle citrus scent.
Shapeless to Finished
On a short cut, apply Matrix Design Pulse Switch-Flicks Wax-Gel ($16; Matrix.com
for salons) to wet hair for a sculpted style. On long layers, scrunch it through dry hair to add texture and volume.
Dull to Shiny
Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist ($25; Fekkai.com
) contains microscopic capsules of olive oil to give hair a sheer gloss that doesn't look greasy or wet.
Curly to Straight
Straight to Curly
The Stealth Flat Iron by Keratin Complex ($139; KeratinComplex.com
) does double duty. For a sleek finish, straighten hair between the titanium plates; for soft curls, wrap hair around the heated outer edges.
Unruly to Manageable
If your hair is usually hard to style, try Rusk Priming Crème ($13; StyleSource.com
). Olive oil and pro-vitamin B5 smooth the cuticle to create a controllable texture, so you can blow-dry, straighten, or curl quickly and easily.
Flat to Voluminous
The wheat extract in the liquid-to-foam Redken Body Full Instant Bodifier ($16; Redken.com
for salons) coats each strand of hair to create texture and boost volume; the cotton extract leaves hair soft and moisturized.
