Follow along as we share the best hair products to add to your collection so you can score healthy-looking hair.
For those who love to flaunt short and defined styles, it’s worth experimenting with hair pomade. This beauty staple works wonders to hold and shape your strands however your heart desires.

Rub a dime-sized amount between your palms and work it through your hair to create your desired shape. Voila!
Are your locks in need of some TLC? A deep conditioner is just what this situation calls for. This must-have product goes the extra mile to provide your strands with more thorough conditioning and leave you with hydrated hair. Give your strands a boost in hydration with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner. Ideal for those dealing with dry strands, this pick is made with 20 percent conditioning serum and camellia and sunflower oils, for a formula that nourishes each strand for silkier, softer hair.
After shampooing, massage onto wet hair from mid-lengths to ends and leave it on for one minute before rinsing thoroughly.
Speaking of giving your strands some extra love, a hair mask won’t disappoint. Known to come in various formulas that provide your strands with different benefits, hair masks can help you address specific hair care concerns with ease. One of our favorite hair masks? The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm! This hair product helps to restore strength and brilliance to damaged hair strand by strand for a stronger and healthier-looking mane.
Believe it or not, your go-to shampoo and conditioner system is not your only line of defense when it comes to keeping your strands in tip-top shape. Hair serums are chock full of benefits that can easily take your hair care game to the next level. From nourishing dry hair to protecting against humidity and softening your strands, the possibilities are endless. See what all the hype is about with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment. This lightweight serum instantly transforms dull hair into nourished, silky, shiny locks. Basically, it’s everything you need in your hair care routine—in one product!
If you’re a salon blonde, then you know that brassiness can start to rear its ugly head in what feels like no time at all. That’s where purple shampoo comes into play! Since blonde hair that’s turned brassy looks yellow, a pigmented purple shampoo can help to neutralize the yellow hue and revive your blonde locks. Once you think about the color wheel you learned about in art class—and how yellow and purple sit opposite of each other on the wheel—the idea totally makes sense.
To use, apply the shampoo to wet hair and massage into a lather, then rinse out with lukewarm water. Follow up with a generous amount of conditioner, leave on for two to five minutes, rinse thoroughly, and style as desired.
Are damaged strands the bane of your existence? It may be time to treat your hair to a restorative lamellar treatment. While lamellar treatments have only become known as one of the best hair products recently, they’ve made quite the impression. That' right, the L’Oréal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar Hair Treatment may be just what your hair needs. This transformative treatment is formulated to coat hair with moisturizing agents and an amino acid while targeting damaged areas of hair. To do this, small, thin layers called lamellars form to help smooth the surface of your strands without weighing them down. In just eight seconds, your hair will sport a healthy, shiny, and silky appearance.
Use two to three times a week on wet hair after shampooing. Apply directly to wet hair, massaging it through your strands for eight seconds. Rinse out, avoiding contact with eyes. Follow your normal conditioning routine.
Next up? Curl mousse. This woefully underutilized product helps to give your strands beautiful, bouncy curls without the fuss. Not to mention, it’s a great way to give your hair a break from your hot tools. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, which works to add major definition to naturally curly strands and offers a long-lasting hold sans the stickiness. Simply apply an egg-sized amount to your strands, scrunch, and let air dry. Once your hair is dry, you’ll have soft curls to play with.
We totally understand that some hairstyles naturally call for your heat tools. But that doesn’t mean you should use heat on your strands without the proper protection. The L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray works to calm frizz, seal in shine, and protect your locks from heat damage. Use it every time you reach for your blow-dryer, flat iron, or curling wand. To apply, mist evenly over your strands from roots to ends.
There is nothing worse than styling your strands to perfection, only to be left with flat hair by mid-day. For a simple fix, you’ll need a hairspray that provides great hold without a stiff look and feel. The L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold has a strong brushable hold that can stand up against humidity. Shake and hold the can 12 inches away from your head, mist evenly, and you’re all set.
We can all agree that greasy roots can take a toll on your beauty look. If your shampoo and conditioner just aren’t cutting it, you may need a scalp scrub to pick up the slack. The L’Oréal Paris EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub is a sulfate-free pick formulated with apricot seeds that works to gently remove impurities, flakes, and buildup from dirt and excess oils for a balanced and healthy-looking scalp.
Everyone’s strands can use some extra attention, and a leave-in conditioner is just the product to get the job done. Perfect for individuals who are dealing with dry hair, this essential product works wonders to provide extra moisture and help detangle for an easy styling session. Grab the L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Break Proof Lotion, which is formulated to strengthen your strands and protect them from breakage without weighing down your hair. Part your hair in even sections and apply a generous amount to each section from root to tip.
