The Only Two Products You Need For a Whole YEAR of Perfect Hair

Lisa Patulny

If the dawn of 2016 set in motion a beauty resolution to live the best hair year you’ve ever had, we have some very good news for you: You only need two products to make your dream a reality. How can that be possible when the shelves of your local Priceline heave with shampoos and styling products, you ask? When you get right down to it, most of us deal with just two styling issues that stand in the way of a Good Hair Day—frizz and a lack of volume. The great news is that it only takes a duo of styling products to coax your hair into submission. Our second-favourite power couple (after Diane and Josh), you probably already own them.

Your humble bottle of dry shampoo can do so much more than mop up grime. Choose a texturising formula and you’ll get an instant boost of body at the roots on application, plus anywhere else you spray it. (This type of formula makes a great stand-in for texturising dust BTW.) That’s volume sorted, but how about frizz? Dry shampoos are designed to absorb moisture which makes them a good ally in fighting humidity-induced fluffiness. After washing and drying your hair, work a healthy dose into your roots, and mid-lengths to ends with your fingers, then sleep on it. You’ll wake up to strands that stay smooth through the day.

If you were expecting a product packed with new-fangled technology and rare ingredients, you may be surprised to discover the amazing versatility of this oft disregarded styler. Hairspray can do a lot—there’s a reason why no hairstylist worth their Elnett would ever be caught without it. To prevent frizz, mist all over to coat hair with a humidity-resistant glaze. (If you use a heated tool, use it post-styling to set everything in place.) For extra oomph at the roots, tip your head upside down, spray, and turn right side up again. The hold of the hairspray adds lift where you need it, preventing limp strands.
