From styling prep to the finishing touches, there are certain products that are cabinet staples. These are products that every woman should keep on hand so that you’re always prepared when setting out to create your hairstyle.
Here are the five products you should always keep in stock, for every step in the styling process:
After washing your hair, apply a few drops of frizz-free serum, like the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, to your hair. This product works from roots to ends to smooth hair—reducing frizz, polishing ends, and adding shine.
And, for off-days when you aren’t washing your hair, start your styling with some dry shampoo, like Redken 2-Day Extender, to revive your hair and eliminate grease. Dry shampoo also adds volume and texture, a plus for any hairstyle you’re looking to create.
If you’re planning on blow drying, straightening, or curling your hair, be sure to apply some thermal-protectant spray before you start. We love Paul Mitchell Hot Off the Press. This product forms a protective barrier over your hair to shield it from heat damage and lock in moisture.
If you’re skipping the heat but still want some style, spritz some texturizing spray—like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray— to give some added body and movement to your hair. For subtle waves, spray throughout hair, then tightly scrunch until waves form.
