  • Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Omega+ Nourishing Hair Oil

    Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Omega+ Nourishing Hair Oil

    Take time this season to nourish and rehydrate your hair with this new oil from Alterna. It’s packed with a highly concentrated dose of C22 and omega-3 fatty acids to help fight dry, brittle locks. To boot, it leaves your mane gleaming with intense shine while smoothing the hair shaft. The paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free formula improves the overall condition of your hair while leaving it super soft. $38

  • Caviar Repair RX Micro-Bead Fill & Fix Treatment Masque

    Alterna Caviar Repair RX Micro-Bead Fill & Fix Treatment Masque

    This rich and restorative hair mask rebuilds damaged strands from the inside out. Loaded with microbeads, the creamy, paraben-, sulfate- and phthlate-free formula is activated when it comes in contact with warm water and releases essential nutrients and proteins in the hair’s interior cortex, filling gaps and tears in each strand of hair. The result is enviably soft, shiny locks with improved manageability. Plus, it smells great! $42

  • Amika 4P Interchangeable Barrel Curler Set

    Amika 4P Interchangeable Barrel Curler Set

    Have you looked at your drawer of curling irons recently and realized you have way more than you need? Previously you needed a separate tool for each size curl you wanted—a .75-inch barrel delivers a completely different curl than a 1.25-inch barrel. Now, Amika has simplified everything and created a four-in-one wand, replete with .70-inch, .75-inch, 1-inch and 1.25-inch clip-free, ceramic curling barrels (goodbye, creases; hello, even heat distribution!) that interlock with a single wand. It also comes with a heat-resistant glove, just to be safe. $175

    Bumble and bumble. Surf Spray

    A favorite of hair stylists everywhere, Surf Spray is for those days you’re not looking for over-the-top shine, but rather a cool, just-from-the-beach wave and texture. The light spray is infused with salt (for sea-worthy volume and body) along with kelp and seaweed extracts to keep hair hydrated and healthy. $23

  • It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In

    It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In

    It isn’t called Miracle Leave-In for nothing. Ideal for all hair types, this conditioning treatment is a jack-of-all-trades. It detangles, repairs damaged hair, adds body and shine, controls frizz, and seals and protects color-treated hair. Though results are instantaneous, consistent use of the product over time truly transforms the hair. $17.99

  • Josie Maran Argan Hair Oil Serum

    Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum

    Give the sun some competition with luminous hair that shines brilliant and bright. High in Vitamin E, Argan oil is said to be the latest miracle beauty treatment that renews both the hair and skin. This serum takes down frizz in an instant, moisturizes and strengthens hair, and seals split ends. Oh, and it smells divine! $30

  • Kérastase Elixir Ultime

    Kérastase Elixir Ultime

    Containing potent elements harvested from Central America (antioxidant shine-enhancing maize oil), the Amazon (conditioning pracaxi oil), North Africa (strengthening argan oil) and even Asia (smoothing camellia oil), the Paris-based brand’s velvety hair potion delivers an incredible amount of shine, conditioning and cellular regeneration with just a small drop. $54

  • Klorane Dry Shampoo

    Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract

    Formulated with protective oat extract, Klorane’s dry shampoo leaves hair clean and volumized. Apply only to scalp and roots and leave in hair for 2 minutes after application to absorb dirt, then brush out. For a less texturized feel, opt for the non-aerosol version, which is more of a baby powder consistency and actually gives you more uses per bottle. $17.99
