While we mourn the impending shutdown of Becca Cosmetics (it’s not just us, right?), we’ll use every sale opportunity to restock on some of our favorite products, like this buttery, hyaluronic acid-infused Hydra-Light Plumping Lip Balm. It instantly drenches dry lips in a moisturizing blend of mango butter, jojoba seed oil, and the flavor of juicy mango and leaves a pretty, subtle tint in either Spray (pink fuchsia) and Surge (warm coral).
This tried-and-true Redken All Soft Conditioner (and multi-year Readers’ Choice winner), gets its good reputation for bringing dry and damaged hair back to life — mending frayed ends, managing frizz, and adding gloss and shine. Don’t worry, the matching shampoo is on sale, too.
In the same vein as the Best of Beauty-winning Hot Tools Professional 24K Gold Charcoal Infused One-Step Blowout, the Black Gold Detachable One Step Round Brush Dryer saves you precious time by drying and styling your hair all at once, working its magic in smoothing frizz, adding volume, and cutting down on heat damage.
Summertime frizz is no match for Color Wow‘s Dream Coat Supernatural Spray, which won a Best of Beauty Award for its serious waterproofing and smoothing abilities. Allure contributing editor Jessica Chia recommends letting your hair air-dry a bit (she waited 20 minutes) before spritzing your damn strands and activating the product with a blow-dryer. The heat sets the “cross-linking polymers” that act as a humidity-blocking cloak for each hair strand.
GHD‘s Helios Performance Hair Dryer is the real deal. Need proof? This chic tool with gold detailing blasts an airflow speed of 75 miles per hour for lightning-fast, whisper-quiet drying via an ultra-slim, precise nozzle. Think fewer flyaways and more shine.
Is your color fading? Not if Matrix‘s Total Results Keep Me Vivid Sulfate-Free Shampoo has anything to say about it. The gentle cleanser, which lathers into a lovely, milky foam, functions like a laminate to maintain the vibrancy of your color for up to 21 washes when you use the entire Keep Me Vivid system, which also includes a conditioner, leave-in treatment, and lamination spray. Plus, if it’s good enough for Laverne Cox, it’s definitely good enough for us.
Formulated with a strengthening and moisture-boosting team of panthenol, algae, wheat amino acids, and glycerin, Ouidad‘s Curl Quencher Moisturizing Conditioner seals your cuticles so it’s much harder for humidity to penetrate your curls and cause unwanted frizz. Let it sit for three minutes while you’re in the shower or leave a small amount on your ends as a leave-in treatment.
Eva NYC‘s Spectrum Far-Infrared Dryer isn’t your average blow-dryer. This pastel pink hot tool uses something called “red beam far-infrared spectrum technology” to heat your hair from the inside out in order to protect your outer cuticle. Smart, right? It also comes with a removable lint filter, concentrator, diffuser, and hanging hook for easy storage.
