For many of us, winter weather means dry and dull hair. Cold temperatures, dry air and lots of wind can all be very damaging to the health and appearance of our locks.

Hairstylists and professionals know this all too well, and they come armed with their favorite products to add red carpet-ready shine to their celebrity clientele. Lucky for us, all these hair products are available at our local drugstore!

1. Revlon Uniq One Hair Mask, $13, Amazon

TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, TODAY does have affiliate relationships. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.

"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.

2. Semi Di Lino Diamond Illuminating Essential Oil, $26, Jet

"It's one of my secrets for repairing hair and sealing the hair cuticle. It also creates instant shine that can last up to a week. It's now available in the United States; I was shipping it in from Europe until it was available here," said Nevsy, whose celebrity clients include Lionel Richie and Sandra Bernhard.

3. John Frieda Frizz Ease Serum, $9, Amazon

"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; it's prefect for the cold winter," said Felix Fischer, hair guru to Marisa Tomei, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchet.

4. Miss Jessie's Leave In Condish, $25, Jet

" 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.

5. Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Conditioner, $6, Jet

"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.

6. It's a 10 Miracle Hair Mask, $22, Jet

"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 have included Melissa Gilbert and Reed Taylor.

7. Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo, $8, Amazon

"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.

8. Luseta Argan Oil Hair Masque, $15, Jet

"A regular masque routine will help ensure your hair stays healthy throughout winter. This ultranourishing one is a client favorite," said Lococo, whose clients include Kirsten Dunst, Lily Tomlin and Christina Sturgeon.

9. L'Oreal Elnet Satin Spray, $10, Jet

"This has been a stylist secret for years. It's great for my editorial, on-set, runway and 'real life' clients," said Lococo.

10. Infiniti Pro by Conair 3QMS, $60, Amazon

"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 percent, and also provides more power (air flow) to cut down on dying time. This means less heat on your hair, which helps your hair retains more moisture. The more moisture your hair has, the more shine it has," said Michael Duenas, celebrity clients include Noah Cyrus, Tiffani Thiessen, Abigail Spencer and Petra Nemcova.

11. It's a 10 Miracle Leave In, $10, Jet

"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.
