Welcome back to Day 12 of the 2013 StyleBistro Awards! Today's readers' choice category is one that's really near and dear to our hearts—and heads. Best New Hair Product!
After tireless trial runs and months of hogging up the real estate in our bathrooms (sorry, roomies!), we finally narrowed down the competition to these five must-haves. Get the scoop on each of these miracle workers, and cast a vote for your top pick in the poll, below.
Don't forget to return each day for more StyleBistro Awards categories! The winners will be announced on August 26th.
Oribe Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse ($36 at bergdorfgoodman.com): Have trouble getting your hair to hold curl or texture? Meet your new tress BFF. Just a golfball-sized dollop of this slightly waxy (but non-sticky!) foam took our limp, lifeless strands to a whole new level of va-va-voom volume. Think: Hollywood hair.
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo ($20 at sephora.com): One of my favorite things ever that exists on this planet? Drybar blowouts. What's even better than a Drybar blowout? A Drybar blowout that lasts for days. As the resident dry shampoo addict at StyleBistro HQ, I can safely say I've yet to find a formula that a) holds curl in my hair b) gets rid of all the gross-ickiness of day-old oils and c) leaves my hair feeling and smelling as delightfully fresh as this guy. I'm no hoarder, but I buy these cans in bulk. (No joke.)
L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Rich Oil ($32 at LPSalons.com): This one's for the gals who feel like their hair just. won't. cooperate. no matter what measures they try. Formulated specifically for, ahem, rebellious hair types, this silky strand-tamer combines the powers of bran oil—for its intense moisturizing properties—and cult-fave argan oil—for its richness in hydrating Vitamin E and Omega 3s—to make styling easier and faster.
Living Proof Satin Hair Serum ($29 at livingproof.com): A motto we like to live by? If Jennifer Aniston swears by anything hair-related, we try it. No questions asked. And just like that, we were hooked on this tech-savvy, silicone- and oil-free serum. The entire brand is made by a bunch of brainy MIT-trained beauty buffs (read: super-smart scientists), so you know it's the good stuff. But don't just take our word for it, after one use you can truly feel the difference in texture.
Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Fortifying Clear Shampoo and Conditioner ($5 each at drugstores): We're just going to cut to the chase: this super-affordable cleansing set made our hair smell ah-may-zing. Benefit-packed with three nourishing oils—avocado, olive, and almond—we noticed our hair felt seriously softer and sleeker after only a few rub-a-dubs.
Alright, ladies. Time to weigh in! Which of these life-changers deserves the title of Best New Hair Product of 2013? Vote below!
