Keeping track of all the styling products hair needs can become overwhelming and expensive. What if your heat-protectant, anti-frizz and shine serum could be combined into one bottle? Enter “12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment” and “Rapid Blowout Argan Oil Blow Dry Spray.” Made with ingredients like natural silk protein and argan oil, these all-in-one bottles of magic might be our favorite styling products to date. 12 benefits is the best hair styling purchase you can make and here’s why:
Instant Healthy Hair Treatment

If that isn’t enough to raise your brows, meet the brand‘s newest addition, “12 Benefits Rapid Blowout Argan Oil Blow Dry Spray.” The sister product is even smaller in size, yet has just as many benefits as the first. This product: “shortens blow dry time, protects cuticle with Moroccan Argan oil, reduces stress on hair from brushing, prevents blow-dryer dry out, provides exquisite shine, moisturizes hair, controls frizz, flat iron sealer, prevents static, gives curly or hard to manage hair discipline, adds softness and a silky feel, and anti-age formula keeps hair youthful.”
