Sure, there are a number of great hair-care brands out there that come out with a lot of great, innovative products. But when it comes down to it, the average woman doesn’t have the time or counter space for all of them. From pre-shampoo conditioners to hair balms specifically created for after the beach use, it seems like there is a product for every need these days.

With all the clutter, we want someone to just tell it to us straight. How many hair-care products do we actually, absolutely need as modern women who want gorgeous hair and what should we invest in? Enter Edward Tricomi, celebrity hairstylist and co-owner of the Warren-Tricomi salons, who says the magic number, is five-there are five hair products that every woman should have in her bathroom. Here they are:

1) Quality shampoo and conditioner
“Think of your shampoo and conditioner as the prep work before you style. Spending a little extra for quality is well worth the splurge.”

2) Hairspray
“My number one must-have. You want your style to have hold, but still move and be touchable. Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer ($46) is a great one. You can layer it depending on the amount of hold you need.”

3) Blow dry lotion
“You need to use frizz-fighting product while the hair is still wet. A blow dry lotion provides humidity resistance, frizz-control and protects hair from heat styling, which is so important.”

4) Dry shampoo
“Great for when you want to breathe life back into your style. Sexy, wavy styles will stay voluminous and blowouts will last longer. No need to worry about them falling flat.”

5) Hair glaze
“Takes out the dullness. Gives beautiful shine and depth. Depending on your hair texture you can use it daily or as a weekly treatment. If hair is super fine, don’t use it more than once a week.”
