The prescription for softer, healthier hair? A rich leave-in conditioner. “Leave-in conditioners are great for long lasting moisturizing and fly-away control and can also act as a styling product. Apply leave-in on towel dried hair, mid-shaft to ends,” says Featherman, who specifically recommends this product for those who like to air-dry their hair.

Not in the mood to wash your hair? Not a problem, thanks to Skinnyskinny’s organic dry shampoo. “Over shampooing will dry out the hair, and dry hair, especially on curly hair promotes frizz and the dreaded halo-effect,” says Featherman, who lists this among her favorite beauty products. “I recommend shampooing no more than three times a week and using a dry shampoo on off days.”

Hair gel has come a long way in the past few decades. In fact, new formulas, like this aloe-infused variety, can help hold your hair in place without the wet, crunchy look made popular in the 1990s. “I like MGA’s Styling Gel because of its lightness and versatility,” says Featherman. “Aloe not only moisturizes the hair, reducing frizz potential, it also provides hold and style.”
