For anyone who uses heated styling tools on their hair, a good thermal spray is a must have. But finding one that adds some serious body and shine? Well, that's just an added bonus. While Rusk Thermal Shine Spray ($16) is exactly what it claims to be — a heat protector that keeps your hair from frying — what makes it special is that it contains a touch of pure argan oil, making it a powerhouse in the shine department. No added shine-enhancing products are needed once your hair is finished. Just mist down your strands with Rusk's thermal spray before styling, and you'll have hair so lustrous you might not be able to stop running your fingers through it all day.
The secret to a smooth and luminous blow-out? A simple shine-enhancing cream. Not only will this type of product provide a bit of body to the hair, but it will also moisturize and reduce frizz. To use, squeeze about a dime- or quarter-sized amount (depending on your texture) to your fingertips, emulsify with your fingers, and distribute through damp hair from back to front. Blow-dry as normal with a round brush.
Tips: If you have particularly oily hair, apply to the ends first, working up to the roots. If you're lacking volume, use your round brush to overdirect the hair in the opposite direction while blow-drying. As far as product goes, for two great suggestions, just read more.
