Most skincare and makeup products are formulated with layering in mind. But with hair products, the result can be crunchy, drying and even damaging. Product buildup, which is essentially a film of residue on the hair and scalp, can result in flaky powder on the surface, dehydrated locks and stunted growth. (Just like the skin on your face, the scalp also needs to breath to perform correctly).

The solution: one product that solves multiple issues. We’ve gathered double-duty miracle workers that provide both health and style benefits so you don’t need to double up on product to get your desired finish. They’re practically a perfect hair day in a bottle. Find the perfect product for you below!

Enter the first CC cream for hair. And it pretty much does it all—protects against UV rays and hot tools, strengthens the hair shaft, moisturizes and adds shine and softness. However, because it’s a cream, those with thinner hair should use sparingly.
