Blowpro Time to Shine Mist
From a New York City salon that specializes in blowouts comes this ultra-luxe spray. A lightweight cocktail of chamomile and white tea extracts, it hydrates and smooths out frizz, so it’s perfect to spritz on before styling, after styling, or throughout the day for touch-ups.

Oscar Blandi At Home Salon Glaze Shine Rinse

Bumble and Bumble Bb. Stylist Editions Kit
The Bumble and Bumble products have a life and reputation of their own aside from the New York City salons of the same name. The quartet of all-star products in this travel-size kit—Surf Spray, Finishing Spray, texture cream, and hair spray—were handpicked by the brand’s team of stylists.
To buy: $48, sephora.com.
Oribe Volumista Mist
For a big, salon-style blowout, spritz on this lifting spray, then blow-dry. Formulated to pump up volume and keep hair from falling flat, it’s also infused with lychee and amber extracts to protect your hair from environmental damagers.
To buy: $34, oribe.com.
Ouidad Omega-3 Replenishing Hair Treatment
When you can’t get yourself to a salon to treat your locks to a super-hydrating mask, trust this bottle. Comb the blend of omega fatty acids through wet hair and let it sit for two to five minutes, then rinse. It works to strengthen the hair shafts and lock in moisture.
To buy: $36, sephora.com.
Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo
Okay, it’s not quite the same as having the famous stylist himself work on your hair, but you can use his oil-absorbing powder-to-spray aerosol a few mornings a week to revive it. Made with cedar bark extract, it is lighter than the commonly used cornstarch, and it won’t leave hair stiff or sticky.
To buy: $25, shopsergenormant.com.
