Finding the perfect shampoo and conditioner isn’t the easiest thing in the world. In fact, it’s one of the toughest things we’ve ever done in our lives. (And yes, we know how melodramatic that sounds.) But seriously, the wrong shampoo and conditioner can make hair feel like straw, make it greasy, make it impossible to brush or comb … while the perfect ones just make hair look, well, perfect. And that’s what Dove Damage Therapy Shine Boost Shampoo and Conditioner are. Perfect.
Let’s start with the fact that this duo makes hair feel incredible. It feels soft, silky and super moisturized immediately, and it stays that way for days!
We also love the fact that they don’t weigh hair down. It won’t feel greasy or heavy, but will actually feel lightweight and bouncy—and that’s before you even blowdry it!
And, of course, your hair will be so super shiny, you won’t know what to do with yourself! It’s lustrous and gorgeous for at least three days.
Dove Damage Therapy Shine Boost Shampoo and Conditioner retail for $4.75 each at drugstore.com.
I have baby fine, straight hair. Some of you may drool with jealousy at this seemingly easy hair type but I assure you, the grass is not always greener. When my hair is stick straight it looks so piecey and odd that I feel a little like Taylor Momsen, not something I strive for. So I like it to have a little bit of a natural bounce to it — to achieve this I use the L’Oreal EverSleek Humidity Defying Leave-In Creme. First of all it helps my hair from getting too much bounce from the humid summers we have where I live. Second of all it is so light and airy that it does not weigh down my poor baby fine hair. I use it every time I wash my hair and I’m never sorry I did. Plus the line is free of sulfates and doesn’t seem to have any harsh effects on my highlighted hair.
You can buy L’Oreal EverSleek Humidity Defying Leave-In Creme for $8.99 at walgreens.com.
I have what might be considered unruly, unmanageable hair. Really, it’s bordering on the ridiculous. Luckily, no one has to see it in its natural state, thanks to Kerastase Masquintense for Thick Hair.
Used once a week, this mask completely transforms even the most difficult hair into lush, beautiful gorgeousness. I apply a quarter-sized amount to hair after shampooing and leave on for 5-10 minutes (the perfect time to do a body scrub, right?) and let the mask work is magic.
Kerastase’s patented DOSAGE GLUCO-ACTIVE 3 technology combines proteins, lipids and glucose. What does this mean for your hair? Well, that it’s nourished, moisturized and ends up looking completely gorgeous, of course! I honestly can’t believe the difference in my tresses after using this mask.

Whether you woke up late today or just want to extend your sleek blow dry an extra day, dry shampoo is your ticket to making hair look fresh and clean in seconds. Dry shampoo has long been a must-have in our beauty arsenal, so we were excited to test out the new TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo.
What first struck me about the shampoo is that it’s available in 4 different formulas based on your specific hair type — something completely unique to the dry shampoo market. The four formulas are:
Strengthening Dry Shampoo: The formula, with B12 vitamins and keratin, helps strengthen hair and leaves it full of healthy body.
Volumizing Dry Shampoo: The formula, with mineral clay and citrus, removes oil while injecting hair with salon-gorgeous volume.
Smoothing Dry Shampoo: The formula, with Vitamin H & Silk Proteins, refreshes your straight style by removing excess oil, impurities and odor to ensure your smooth look lasts.
Moisturizing Waterless Foam Shampoo: The formula, with Witch Hazel, Citrus, and Aloe Vera, refreshes your hair by removing excess oil, impurities and odor while moisturizing hair.
Included with the shampoo were some helpful tips on how to get the best results from Dry Shampoos:
Do shake vigorously before use and in between spray bursts for best results.
Do lift sections of dry hair and spray lightly at roots
Do spray in short bursts, holding 8-12 inches from head
Don’t spray it like hair spray (all over and continuously)
Do leave in for 1-2 minutes.
Do use fingertips or a brush to distribute product evenly
Following the instructions, I sprayed at the roots, targeting areas that seemed especially oily. Like most other dry shampoos I’ve used, the spray coated my hair with a whitish powder. I instantly noticed the clean, fresh scent which comes from citrus extracts infused into the product. After 2 minutes, I used my fingers to distribute the shampoo until the whitish powder was no longer visible.
True to TRESemmé’s promise, my hair looked instantly refreshed (and smelled great!) without water. I was pleased to see that my brunette hair didn’t have the tell-tale ashy look that a lot of other dry shampoos can leave. In addition to looking clean and non-greasy, my hair felt a bit fuller and thicker than it does when it’s freshly washed. 12 hours later, my hair still looks and smells clean.
Dove’s Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner doesn’t smell that great, and its cheap yellow appearance was a bit off-putting, but I was excited by its promises to “revive dry, rough and frizzy hair” with it’s weightless nutri-oils. I didn’t notice an instant change, but overall my hair seems to be responding well to it so I’ll keep using it until it’s time to try a new conditioner.
