Heat-styling: it’s bad for us, but we just love the way it makes our hair look and feel. Though we adore our blowdryers, curling irons and straighteners, summer has left us unable to stand any more heat. But if you panic a little at the thought of letting your hair air-dry, never fear: with the right products, it’s possible have totally amazing hair without heat styling. We’ve rounded up 7 of the greatest products to help you tame, soften and style your air-dried hair; they’re so amazing that we won’t blame you if you break up with your blow-dryer for good.

Bb Don't BLow It

Bumble & Bumble is actively discouraging any blowdryer use with this (H)air styler. It’s a lightweight styling cream that tames frizz while making your strands sculptable as they dry. It’s lightweight enough that you can apply it to fine hair without worrying about being flattened, but it’s got enough grit for thicker strands too.  (Bumble & Bumble Don’t Blow It Hair Styler)

Our favorite drugstore frizz-fighter, John Frieda gives us reprieve from our blowdryers with this lightweight styling foam for waves.

As far as hair oils go, Moroccanoil makes our favorite in terms of best-smelling, softening and conditioning. We’re pretty sure this product kicked off the whole Moroccan Argan oil hair craze anyway, so may as well stick to the original. After slathering in this, your hair will air-dry frizz-free and be left smelling like a wonderful musky dream.  (Moroccanoil Treatment)

Curls absolutely LOVE this hydrating gloss from Oribe.

If you have rebellious hair, you need strong hold that’s still light enough not to shellack your hair to your head. That’s where Aircraft Pomage Mousse from R+Co comes in. It’s a pomade that sprays out and applied like a mousse, so it’s all soft-feeling hold with light-as-air formula. Perfect on thin and thick hair alike, this smooths, texturizes and enhances any wave that your hair may have. Basically beach hair in a can; we love it.  (R+Co Aircraft Pomade Mousse)




This brand new product came out just in time to roundly defeat humidity. We’re always impressed with Shu Uemura’s hard working hair potions, but this is a miracle: it allows us to ditch all hot tools in favor of this conditioning, great-smelling spray-in conditioner and frizz-tamer in one. It gives just the right amount of grip of hair so that it feels clean but makes it easy to twirl into any bun of braid. Spray it into soaking wet hair, and know that smooth, silky locks will be all yours with zero effort. (Shu Uemura Wonder Worker)
