Planning on finally putting those endless hours spent on YouTube watching hairstyle tutorials and those multiple hairstyle boards on Pinterest to good use? You’ve come to the right place. If you’re a hairstyle noob who’s bored of wearing her hair the same way every single day, it’s time to make good use of all the free time on hand and up your hairstyle skills for the upcoming festive season.

Apart from some practice, you’d also need to stock up on some hair styling essentials to get the job done. Ahead, we’ve curated a list of basic hairstyling products you need to add to your hairstyling kit RN.

 

01. Heat protectant

01. Heat protectant

The most basic hair care product to include in your starter kit is a heat protectant spray. It protects your hair from heat damage and prevents it from turning dry and frizzy. The TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray is enriched with ingredients such as keratin, marula oil and biotin to protect, moisturise and nourish your strands as well as prevent heat damage.

 

02. Dry shampoo

02. Dry shampoo

A hairstyle holds better on second or third-day hair because natural oils from your scalp give it a natural texture and hold. But if you have an oily scalp, there’s a chance your hairstyle would end up looking flat. To avoid this and freshen up your second-day hair, simply spritz on a dry shampoo like the Dove Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo on your scalp the previous night. The dry shampoo will soak up all the excess oils while you sleep and make your hair look voluminous, bouncy and ready to be styled, the next morning.

 

03. Texturizing spray

Hitting the beach without styling your hair in beach waves doesn’t feel quite right. Agree? But making waves last on thin, straight hair can be a such a struggle. But not if you have the TONI & GUY Hair Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray handy. The lightweight texture won’t weigh your hair down, while the texturizing spray gives your hair more hold.

 

04. Finishing shine spray

Love that glossy looking hair you see on magazine covers and shampoo ads? It’s the effect of a finishing shine spray like the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray. It coats your hair in light moisture to keep it looking glossy and shiny, while also keeping those flyaways in check. It has a non-greasy formula that delivers intense smoothness and shine, while also proving long-lasting hold so your hairstyles don’t drop out.

 

05. Thickening spray

Another amazing product for girls with thin and limp hair is a hair thickening spray. A few spritzes of a thickening spray is enough to massive volume and movement to your hair. The Tigi Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Hair Spray is enriched with palm kernel glycerides that help to create volume and texture so hair feels thicker, fuller and voluminous.
