There's no more hiding under your hat and scarf. The sun is shining and your hair should be too. With the right products, lots of great hair days are in your forecast.
To kickstart things, celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak offers you a clean slate with the latest launches from her brand Roz, a stellar shampoo and conditioner duo. And scalp care doesn't stop after you step out of the shower: Nioxin's new Power Serum addresses excess shedding.
Then, if you prefer heat-styling (we also love a blowout), Rahua's shea butter and oil-infused Heat Protectant Shield is essential. Have extra time? Add beautiful bends with T3's new three-in-one hot tool that creates a range of waves.
If you already have curly hair and are just looking to show it off, Redken and Dove have leave-in treatments that keep your pattern defined for days. For wet set curls, try Bread's new Gel Gloss, which provides hold and shine — without any crunch.
Finish off your look with a shiny new hair accessory from Jennifer Behr's latest collection, which is blooming with all things spring: flowers, butterflies, pastels… and more flowers.
Read on for more details on all of these products and more.
Roz Foundation Shampoo and Conditioner
After decades in the beauty industry, Mara Roszak, hairstylist to the stars (Emma Stone, Zoë Saldana, and Olivia Wilde are all familiar with her magic touch), knows a thing or two about the importance of great styling products, which is why she launched Roz. Based on how much we love her Santa Lucia Styling Oil (it won a 2022 Best of Beauty Clean award), we predict the Roz Foundation Shampoo and Conditioner will earn some real estate in our shower. This duo was created with a long list of benefits in mind: shine-boosting, strengthening, smoothing, and color protection. The ingredients on the labels read a bit like a grocery list — including ginger root, grape extract, and walnut seed extract — but the damage repair and hydration you get can't be found just anywhere.
dpHUE Glossy Glaze
Getting to the salon every six to eight weeks for a gloss treatment isn't always realistic; heck, even doing a 10-minute at-home version can feel like a chore. That's where dpHue Glossy Glaze comes in. Choose from five shades, including Copper, Dark Brown, and Cool Blonde (there's also a Sheer option if you just want shine), and after shampooing, squeeze the formula from mid-lengths to ends. Two minutes later, rinse for softer, more vibrant hair — and a little more time between salon visits.
Nioxin Ultimate Power Serum
What if we told you that your hair follicles have a sense of smell? According to Nioxin, when they get a “whiff” of sandalwood, the aroma stimulates a longer growth cycle. You'll find the scent in Nioxin Ultimate Power Serum, along with caffeine, which is proven to boost circulation. A consistent generous spritz is said to lead to less hair in your brush (and around your house).
T3 Switch Kit Wave Trio
Here to save you from a drawer full of hot tools is T3 Switch Kit Wave Trio, which comes with one handle and three barrel sizes (.5", 1.25", and 1.5") you can easily — as the name says — switch in and out. No matter which curling wand we are using, our favorite part is the one-hour auto-off feature, so we'll never have “Did I unplug it?” anxiety again.
Redken All Soft Mega Curls HydraMelt Leave-In Treatment
Sure, aloe is heroic for soothing sunburn, but have you tried it on your curls? In this Redken All Soft Mega Curls HydraMelt Leave-In Treatment, the hydrating plant is the main character in bringing bounce back to your curls. Allure's associate manager of special projects Talia Gutierrez is a fan: “I credit this treatment for my frizz-free waves. It's the perfect hybrid between a leave-in conditioner and a hair mask. I apply two quarter-size drops to my damp hair post-shower, raking in the creamy texture with my fingers, and my coarse, thick hair has never looked or felt softer.”
Rahua Heat Protectant Shield
You know the drill: If you are using a hot tool, prep with a heat protectant. Rahua's Heat Protectant Shield creates a barrier between your hair and your flatiron, adding extra hydration in the process with a blend of oils, like Sacha Inchi from the Amazon.
Bread Hair Gel Curl Capturing Gloss
Something that should be crunchy and flaky: a granola bar. Something that definitely shouldn't be: your curls. Unlike hair gels of the past, Bread Beauty Supply Curl Capturing Gloss tames frizz without making its presence known.
Jennifer Behr Spring Collection
Jennifer Behr's new hair-accessory collection makes us want to host a garden party. The ornately embellished headbands, butterfly bobby pins, and floral appliqué bows are what childhood dress-up dreams are made of, but with an air of sophistication that makes it feel totally normal to be wearing the sequined Flutter Flip Clip barrette in our 30s.
John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Spray
Blonds, if sunnier days and warmer weather have you reminiscing about the natural highlights that you took for granted in your childhood, you're going to love this John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Spray for helping to brighten things up. The genius of this product: It has peroxide to lighten and purple pigments to tone, so you don't wind up with a brassy finish. Just don't get overzealous — once between washes is all you need.
R+Co Dallas Biotin Thickening Treatment
They say everything's bigger in Texas, but you don't have to be down South to turn up the volume on your blowout. Apply the R+Co Dallas Biotin Thickening Treatment (formulated with rich starch and biotin) once a week in place of a conditioner to add some oomph to your hair. We've found that it performs best when hair is blown out with a round brush and Dolly's "9 to 5" is blasting in the background.
Dove Love Those Bold Curls Leave-In Cream
A lot can change in 48 hours, but with Dove Love Those Bold Curls Leave-In Cream in your hair, one thing will stay consistent: your gorgeous curls. The defining formula, made with hydrating coconut oil and castor oil, brings out the best version of your wave pattern.
