Shiny hair products
"I recommend John Frieda Frizz Ease Serum for shiny, manageable hair. The serum forms a barrier to prevent frizz but also to keep your hair shiny all winter long," said Felix Fischer, hair guru to Marisa Tomei, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett.
"I love to use this product as a treatment styler. It's a great detangler and provides curls a ton of moisture (without oily buildup). Plus, it coats the curls and provides a moisturizing layer of protection. In the winter — whether we're inside in overheated, dry rooms or outside in the harsh cold — your hair needs a little extra love, so I use this product on all my curly girls to give them a base of soft, moisturized and shiny hair," said Andrew Fitzsimons, who styles Shay Mitchell, Janet Mock, Joan Smalls and Kourtney Kardashian.
"It will give the hair the needed smoothness to tame flyaways and give shine!" said celebrity hairstylist Daniel Robb from the Guest House A Salon for Hair in Sherman Oaks, California.
"This provides intense moisture for shiny, healthy hair. It's great for any texture and any length," said Nevsy Zee, the founder and co-owner of Custom Hair Lounge in Chicago.
"This rich conditioning treatment will bathe your hair in moisture while its ingredients go to work battling dry and brittle winter hair. It leaves behind a shield to add shine and bounce," said Robb, whose clients include Melissa Gilbert and Reed Taylor.
"This is great to use as a clarifying shampoo once a week to remove any product buildup or congested pores," said Steve Lococo of B2V West Hollywood.
"A regular masque routine will help ensure your hair stays healthy throughout winter. This ultra-nourishing one is a client favorite," said Lococo, whose clients include Kirsten Dunst, Lily Tomlin and Christina Sturgeon.
"This has been a stylist secret for years. It's great for my editorial, on-set, runway and 'real life' clients," said Lococo.
"It is incredibly important to have a good dryer in the winter. Between heaters blasting your hair, the dry air outside and the wind, your locks are bound to be frizzy, dull and lifeless. The Conair 3QMS wins the never-ending battle in a big way by cutting down frizz up to 75% and also provides more power to cut down on drying time. This means less heat on your hair, which helps your hair retain more moisture. The more moisture your hair has, the more shine it has," said Michael Duenas, whose celebrity clients include Noah Cyrus, Tiffani Thiessen, Abigail Spencer and Petra Nemcova.
"This product is so much more than a leave-in conditioner! It's best to use this product on clean, wet hair, but you can apply it on dry hair for control and smoothing, too. Unlike other leave-in conditioners, this one adds shine to your hair, helps prevent split ends, detangles your hair, repairs any breakage and even has thermal protection," said California Coast colorist and founder of SF Color Collective Jessica Sclamberg, whose celebrity clients include musicians and social media influencers.
