The Hair Products You Need in Your Beauty Arsenal

The ultimate must-have hair product guide.

Sure, there are a lot of haircare and styling products on the market, but which ones do you really need? We're helping you navigate through the sea of endless options below!

Shampoo & Conditioner for Your Hair Type

Even if you decide to invest in nothing else, you'll at least want to make sure you have a great shampoo and conditioner formulated for your specific hair type. Healthy hair that grows long and strong is both clean and hydrated. Shampoo as often as needed-every other or every two days is a good bet. This ensures that your scalp and strands are free of excess oil, sweat, and other impurities. But, shampooing can be drying, which is why you must always follow up with conditioner to help restore moisture. When looking for a shampoo and conditioner you'll want one that's been formulated for your hair type and concerns. If you have thin, fine hair look for volumizing formulas. Forcurly, coarse, or thick hair reach for hydrating options. For color-treated hair you'll only want to wash with color-safe products.

Cleansing Conditioner

If you find that your hair is easily dehydrated, you'll want to keep a cleansing conditioner on rotation. Over-washing your hair can dry it out, causing strands to be dehydrated and brittle and making your hair more prone to breakage. But, by alternating between shampoo and a cleansing conditioner, it's a great way to keep hair clean without stripping it of the moisture it needs. We share everything you need to know about cleansing conditioners here.

Hair Oil

Think oils are a fast track to an unwanted wet look? Think again. Since strong, soft, shiny hair is everyone's idea of #goals, a hair oil is a must-have. They are formulated with key essential oils that can help hair look its best, infusing your strands with protection, nutrients, and the antioxidants. Eager to get started? Here's exactly how to start using oils in your hair care routine.

Styling Product

For Waves and Curls: Embrace your hair's natural texture by using a curl-defining gel and cream duo like Tecni.Art Dual Stylers Bouncy & Tender. The styling cream helps to defend hair against humidity, leaving curls and waves defined, bouncy, and crunch-free!

For Sleek, Straight Hair: For smooth strands, reach for a smoothing gel and cream duo like Tecni.Art Dual Stylers Sleek & Swing. You'll get volume control plus natural movement and protection against frizz.

For Girls Who Heat Style: Whether you heat style with a blow-dryer, flat iron, or curling wand, you'll want to make sure you have a heat protectant. Since heat styling can damage strands, using a protectant acts like a buffer-and often leaves you with silkier, shinier results!
