Keep calm and your hair in check with these heroes
Have a good day? It seems like a stupid question until you consider the surge in confidence, well-being, and positive attitude when our hair looks fantastic.
We all live faster, so time-saving styling products are more important than ever. Thanks to these technological advances, we can now achieve the same professional results – FAST – in our own home.
Read on for the best styling products at the Marie Claire Hair Awards 2020 …
Best heat protection
Winner: Redken Extreme play it safe
There isn’t much that this leave-in treatment for damaged hair can’t do (unless you might cook dinner for you). Formulated with vegetable protein, a few splashes will protect your strands from heat, strengthen them to reduce breakage, and add perseverance to your look.
Best split end treatment
At one time, the only way to get rid of split ends was with scissors. Now this styling cream seals frayed ends from root to tip until the next wash. Think of your smoothest hair dryer so far.
Best styling product for Afro hair
Do you want curls that look sleek, defined, and spiral? This finishing spray glides like a knife through butter through kinks, gives shine and tames frizz – all without pulling the plunge down.
Best curl enhancer
Winner: Evo Liquid Rollers Curl Balm
We guarantee that you will get better with your curly hair after use. The handle is neither crunchy nor sticky and the fresh floral scent also deserves a special mention because you sprayed your hair with perfume.
If you want to defy gravity until the next shampoo, you have come to the right place with this hairspray.
Not only does it give the hair a second wind the next day, it also colors fine strands without leaving a sticky film so you can still comb your fingers through. Win win.
Best hair oil
Winner: Moroccan oil original treatment
This iconic hair oil with antioxidant-rich argan oil and vitamins nourishes, tames runaways and restores shine without giving you the kind of greasy hair you could fry an egg on.
Best blow dryer product
Moisture has no chance against this powerful spray. Like a refined trench coat for your hair, polymers in the formula are heat activated and wrapped around each strand to avoid cotton candy for up to 72 hours.
Best dry shampoo
Two ingredients are invisible to spice up the hair on the second day: rice starch absorbs oil and collects flat roots, while oat milk moisturizes and softens. You can’t even say it’s there when you touch your hair.
Winner: Sachajuan Ocean Mist hairspray
While most salt sprays freeze strands into crispy beach waves, this is the best example of one that gives hair a sticky, touchable, and vibrant texture.
Best care balm
Winner: Fudge Urban matt wax
The ultimate non-glossy, non-sticky wax for the messed-up look he loves that doesn’t compromise on all-day hold.
