Olivia Rodrigo had a big night at the 2022 Grammy Awards. The singer and actress was not only nominated seven times, but she was also one of the night's big performers. After winning her first award of the night, Rodrigo then performed "Driver's License" before winning two more Grammys.

When the 19-year-old singer arrived on the red carpet, her sequined, optical illusion dress with a matching choker by Vivienne Westwood first caught my attention. After taking in the bodycon dress and gloves, my gaze shifted upward: her incredibly shiny, cascading, waves that were created using a $7 drugstore serum, according to her hairdresser Clayton Hawkins.

Luscious, silky hair has always been the penultimate goal of hair glamor, but especially now that DIY home hair glossing is a booming beauty category. Celebrities, however, have access to the most expensive hair treatments and most sought-after stylists, so the secret sauce to their beauty is often astronomically priced. Rodrigo's key product, at least for the night, was Dove's (affordable) Hair Therapy Ceramide Brilliant Gloss & Repair Serum.

According to Dove, the ceramide-packed serum has two main uses. The first is to be applied to wet or damp hair as a reparative leave-in product that treats hair while you style it. The second is to apply it to dry hair to amplify smooth strands and glossy locks while providing nourishment. Hawkins reportedly used the latter method, using generous amounts of the Brilliant Gloss & Repair Serum from the middle of her strands down to the tips.

Although the gloss serum was, in my opinion, the pièce de résistance of Rodrigo's hair, the other products used by Hawkins were equally as affordable. The celebrity stylist also used a $14 Tangle Teezer Hairbrush as well as a handful of other Dove products including the 7-in-1 Miracle Mist, a multi-tasking product that handles everything from frizz to heat protection. To make the most of the Dove Hair Therapy line, you can nab this shampoo, conditioner, and serum bundle on Amazon (it's now 20 percent off with an on-site coupon). You may not be a teenager with a multiple-award-winning music career, but you can still achieve that type of glamorous hair with a couple of actually affordable Dove products.
