Good-bye Hat Head, Hello Gorgeous!

Damage Repairing & Rehydrating Shampoo

$20

Kiehl's

Prepping your strands starts in the shower. Lather up with a gentle moisturizing shampoo geared toward fragile and dry hair. Make sure hair is completely dry before putting on a hat—dampness is the No. 1 cause of flat locks.

Bel Air Smoothing Conditioner

$25

R+CO

When it comes to conditioner, opt for a smoothing formula that aims to seal in moisture and keep frizz at bay. This pretty bottle is home to a luxurious combination of hibiscus, rice extract and damson plum. Needles to say, it smells divine.

Miracle Moisture Masque

$35

Original & Mineral

Formulated with color-treated and damaged hair in mind, this rich mask delivers a potent nourishing cocktail which helps lock in moisture and keep locks smooth.

Lovin’ Leave-In Conditioner

$24

Philip B

If you invest in just 1 hair product this winter, make sure it's this ultra-nourishing leave-in conditioner. The key is to apply it to the tips of strands only, so as not to weigh down hair from the root.

Meta Lush Volumizer Spray

$23

Serge Normant

As a preventative measure, apply a lightweight volumizing spray to roots a few minutes before putting on a hat. Once you reach your destination, use your fingers to gently lift the roots.

Climate Control Frizz & Flyaway Spray

$22

Ouidad

To banish flyways for good (or at least for the remainder of the day), keep this multifunctioning spray with you at all times.

Protective Hair Perfume

$65

Sachajuan

We swear by this yummy hair fragrance for adding a jolt of freshness to second-day hair. Plus, the moisturizing formula prevents static and promotes shine.

Melt-In Balm

$38

Shu Uemura

Think of this pretty product as lip balm for your hair: The cherry blossom-spiked cream is a godsend for reviving dull, flat tresses.
