I know firsthand that it can be a struggle to find the right hair products that leave you with a just-out-of-the-salon look.
So many creams and sprays promise frizz-free, voluminous results but almost always turn out to be a major let down. I felt that way about a lot of styling products until I came across these picks from Shu Uemera. The brand creates some of the most high quality products that deliver noticeable improvements over time.
Lately, I’ve seen quite a few questions in my DMs about my blowout routine, so I thought I’d round up everything I use in one post. These styling picks will help you replicate my look without much hassle.
p.s. If you’re new to using a round brush while you blow dry your hair, I promise that it gets easier with practice!
Let’s start with the basics: Using a quality shampoo will make all the difference in the overall appearance and feel of your hair. I’m a big fan of this Reset Shampoo which was specifically designed to treat dryness and damage.
This set includes my favorite hair mask as well (ideal for hair with lots of heat damage), and it’s beautifully wrapped in a gift box.
If you’re looking for a product that essentially does it all (like add shine and volume while deeply nourishing), this Rice Water Treatment is it. After washing your hair, just spritz a bit of this onto your locks and style with a blow dryer and round brush.
Before you go to bed, apply one to two pumps to the palms of your hands and distribute the product evenly from your mid-lengths to your ends. You can use a comb to go through and make sure you spread it evenly.
In the morning, simply style your hair as you’d like—no need to rinse. It really doesn’t get any easier than this!
One non-negotiable in every haircare routine? A protective oil.
I’ve found that many hair oils can weigh your strands down or leave you looking a bit greasy. These are obviously big dealbreakers, so I was cautiously optimistic when I first tried this product.
The verdict: it’s lightweight and leaves my hair looking freshly washed. It also smells amazing and offers protection from UV-induced damage and heat up to 450°F—a win-win.
You might think that adding a hair balm into your regimen is unnecessary but I would argue that this product makes a world of a difference in how your style will turn out.
It’s a styling balm that nourishes and moisturizes hair while providing protection from heat. You can use it on damp hair before blow drying it or on dry hair to define shape and style.
This would be a great product to use if you frequently curl your hair and want it to maintain its shape.
I wanted to include the Shu Uemura Reset Hair Mask in this post because it has been one of my go-to products lately, but it’s currently out of stock.
This conditioner is a good alternative that I use on the regular.
The key ingredient is Japanese rice extract, which is packed with vitamins and minerals that work to prevent breakage and undo damage. It’s a little luxury that I always look forward to using come shower time.
