Frizzy, unmanageable mane weighing you, and your dating life, down? Before you take a hairstyle-induced sabbatical, (finally!) take matters into your own hands (and have his all over your strands) with these serious tress-tamers.
1. Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo, $24 for 8 oz.
If you're skeptical of shampoos that boast salon-worthy results straight out of the shower, you're not alone. That's why this frizz-fighting formula comes as such a refreshing (and seemingly rare) find. Created with PolyfluoroEster for locking in moisture-proof smoothness and repelling dirt and oil, you can look forward to less washes (meaning less opportunities for breakage and damage) and more looks of admiration.
2. L'Oreal Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, $4.99
Planning to turn up the heat with a hot guy (er, styling tool)? Ensure you don't get burned thanks to this new creation from L'Oreal. The spray's Fibralock technology, combined with its 450-degree protection, will leave strands safe (and sleek for up to three days).
3. Goody QuickStyle Paddle Brush with Microfiber Bristles, $8.39
If moisture is your "mane" culprit, combat water traps and get covered with this absorbent brush from Goody. Its microfiber bristles promise to remove 30% of water as you blow dry or brush your hair, while side vents allow for maximum air flow. If he doesn't appreciate your humidity-free 'do, he should at least be thankful for less waiting time.
4. BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium 1 1/4" Straightening Iron, now $129.99
While we agree picking the perfect (heat styling) partner is a personal matter, there are a few tried-and-trusted tools that are worth a double-take, including this beloved straightening iron from BaByliss. Using materials (titanium and an ionic generator) to produce far-infrared heat, safely penetrate hair from within, and prevent damage, this flat iron will leave strands as shiny as they are secure.
5. Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode, $15 for 4 oz.
Like dessert for your 'do, top off your style with this spray from Bumble and Bumble. The flake-free and flexible formula is great for taming fly-aways, providing just enough control without rendering tresses untouchable.
6. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Moisture Masque, $26
Keep hair healthy (and him guessing) in between shampoos with this eco-friendly (and ultra-luxe) find from Alterna, which includes organic bamboo extract with smoothing organic kendi oil for whipping rough hair back into smooth (and strong) shape.
