So you saw your favorite celeb rocking super-silky, old-school Hollywood waves and now you want to, too.

In theory you've got this, but somehow, someway, your red carpet vision just isn't coming to life the way you see it in your head. If this sounds like you, you're probably not using the right prep products. "The products you put on wet hair when you get out of the shower and before you actually blow dry will make or break your style," shares celeb hairstylist Riawna Capri.

So what should you be using to get healthy shiny, red carpet status hair?

If you ask the pro, there's only one shine-enhancing treatment you need to get your hands on: L'Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Protein Recharge Treatment.

"This protein-rich, post-shower leave-in cream is truly all you need in order to create loose and bouncy Hollywood waves," spills the celeb stylist. That's because it's made with two powerful natural ingredients: almond oil protein and ceramides, which work together to lock in moisture, repairing dehydrated, thirsty hair from the inside out.

 "I'm not kidding, even the most damaged hair will feel buttery soft after regularly using this leave-in," notes Riawna.

It's so easy to use, too. After you shower, just apply a small amount on wet hair from mid-shafts to ends, making sure that the all ends are fully saturated. But getting that sheen factor is only the first step.

Next, you blow dry and style. To see just how Riawna creates those glam red carpet waves watch the video above!
