Pick #1: Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo " It just adds a lot more moisture to my hair, it doesn't feel like I'm using a shampoo, it almost feels like I'm using a conditioner. And I feel like a lot of time when I'm staying in hotels the water dries my hair out a lot."

Pick #3: Air Control " Okay I love Air Control! I use this on my daily life, so the fact that there is a little one is really really helpful when I'm traveling I can take it through the airport.

It is just so versatile!"
