For our 24th annual Best Beauty Buys, we surveyed leading dermatologists, makeup artists, hairstylists, and manicurists to find out which products they can't get enough of. The votes are in: You'll want to clear a shelf for these 154 beauty game-changers.

Unless I blow-dry my hair with my head flipped upside-down the entire time or use rollers (which never happens), my hair pretty much always falls flat by noon. I have fine hair, and volume is not something it welcomes into its life. That means, stylists who give damn good blowouts and volumizing, body-boosting products are my best friends.

So you get why I was excited to hear back on what volumizer spray would win the in InStyle's 2019 Best Beauty Buys. And according to our panel of pro hairstylists, Phyto's Phytovolume Actif Volume Spray deserves all the cred.

So how does it make hair appear fuller and stop it from falling flat? It's all in the product's formula, which is enhanced with wheat proteins and amino acids, which according to the brand, add volume at the root and plump the diameter of each hair. It does all this without leaving behind a stiff, hairspray-like coating, which in turns also keeps the hair bouncy and touchable.

The only caveat? To get the results, you have to use a blow-dryer. The product is heat activated, so those results won't show up if you spray it in and air dry.

At $30 a bottle, it's cheaper than a blow-out, and probably more conveinent, too. And for me, I'm just excited I won't have to dry my hair upside-down anymore.
