    1. Fanola purple shampoo for those who want icy blonde hair. It'll help tone down the yellow hues without having to re-bleach it constantly.

    2. A Remington Pro heated straightening brush so you can get flawlessly straight hair without using a flat iron. The ceramic bristles will give you silky results without snagging or pulling.


    The tips of the bristles stay cool during usage so you don't burn your hands, plus the three individual heat settings give you freedom to find the perfect temperature.

    Promising review: "I've tried a few other straightening brushes before this one and I gave them all away because they just didn't work. My hair is long and thick and naturally wavy. With every other straightening brush, I have to go over my hair numerous times. With this one, I went over it once and it made a huge difference. I went over it again in case I missed any spots. It wasn't even on the highest setting. It has three heat settings and goes up to 450-degrees. It also has auto shutoff which is convenient. The cord is a good length. This brush is amazing." —klynn08

    Price: $25.47

    3. A bottle of Color Wow's Dream Coat spray to turn frizzy hair into sleek locks that'll resist humidity. Its weightless formula won't leave your hair greasy, but will make it moisture-resistant for up to three washes!

    Promising review: "This product is by far the best thing to correct dry, frizzy, and damaged hair. I live in Arizona where it's hard to keep moisture on your hair and skin. This has been a blessing to my very dry and frizzy hair. I simply spray onto damp shampooed hair and blow dry and it looks like I just stepped out of the salon." —Deedie

    Price: $22.35

    4. A bottle of Olaplex's Hair Perfector repairing treatment for straw-like hair that breaks easily. It can be used for all hair types and just needs to be left in for a minimum of 10 minutes.

    @olaplex via Instagram

    It doesn't replace your current shampoo and conditioner! You can use it before your normal wash and rinse.

    Promising review: "I have curly hair that I color lighter (I color it myself), and over time and in the sun, it has gotten very very blonde. Curly hair is already dry and susceptible to breakage, but then add hair color to it and it really damages it. My hairdresser told me that I needed to invest in products to repair my hair. Then I tried Olaplex and I saw a difference in my hair IMMEDIATELY. It repaired my hair and made it feel healthy again. They say to use it once a week, but I've been using it more. I also leave it in and let it dry and it makes my curls feel bouncy and healthy. I'm in love with this product." —NVM

    Price: $20.99

    5. A canister of Batiste dry shampoo so you can transform your greasy mane into textured, full locks. It's lightweight, creates volume, and has a subtle fragrance. Plus its price is incredibly reasonable.


    When you're applying, tousle it with your hands to get rid of residue! And make sure to apply evenly through your roots. If you apply to one spot directly, you'll have a harder time spreading it out.

    Promising review: "I bought this product about a week ago and I'm so impressed! There's no sticky residue or buildup on my scalp. I've tried other dry shampoos from different brands and they only made my hair look even more dirty. They would clump all the oily sections together and my scalp would feel so weighed down. Not with Batiste! It's so lightweight and the smell is so light and fresh! My hair looks like I just finished blow drying it from a wash! It's not flat at all, which is surprising because my hair is very long. This is the best dry shampoo in the world." —Megamuffin

    Price: $5.28+ (also available in multi-packs)

    It was also selected as the low-price point for the best dry shampoos on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    6. A couple tubes of Pantene's Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots, because you should allowed to style your hair how you like! These doses of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids, and natural glycerin will bring your dry hair back to life, fixing split ends and frizz along the way.


    You get a pack of three, but only use one for each treatment. And don't be afraid of overdosing, you can use the entire shot from root to tip for full coverage.

    Promising review: "This was a great inclusion for winter hydration! My hair is usually always on the dry side with split-ends, but after visiting family in a cold climate, my hair was worse than usual. This really did improve my split ends. I noticed not as many and the ones I did have are not as noticeable. It also added some much-needed hydration to my stands to help them feel a lot more silky and even added some extra shine. Pantene really did a great job with this." —TheGlamorousGeek

    Price: $4.97

    7. A Wet Brush to detangle your mane without major pulling and breakage. With flexible bristles, it'll conquer wet hair without causing you to squeal in pain.

    @thewetbrush via Instagram

    Promising review: "I have a very thick, full head of fine-textured, silky hair. Because of this, my hair tangles and knots easily, making combing and brushing it an absolute nightmare. It's so bad, I usually don't bother at all, and just put it up in a clip when it's wet. No more. This is the best brush I have ever used. I can literally whip it through my hair without worry or care and, like magic, my hair looks and feels amazing. Wet or dry. Not kidding. I'll never use any other brush every again." —QuicklyKitten

    Price: $6.79

    8. A Garnier Fructis damage-repairing mask with papaya extract so you don't have to spend a ton of time to get fully restored locks. Sixty seconds is all it takes!


    Promising review: "This is my first time venturing into the world of deep conditioner and I love this product!! Not only is it super affordable, but my hair has never been softer. And it smells amazing. I do wish it came with a pump rather than a jar where I have to scoop the product out, but given the thickness of the formula, the jar makes the most sense. My hair was in some serious need of some TLC after years of blow drying and flat ironing. The scent is glorious! It left my hair feeling so soft and shiny, but didn't make it feel greasy at all. I would definitely recommend it!" —shamanthaspencer

    Price: $2.97

    9. A bottle of Aveeno apple cider vinegar shampoo that'll promote a healthy scalp, add shine, and nourish strands from root to tip. It's made with oats and is safe for color treated hair, too.


    Promising review: "I have fine, thick, GREASY hair. So greasy to the point I occasionally use dish soap on it to cut the grease. Normal shampoo will not lather the first time there is so much grease! I have been doing research looking for an apple cider vinegar shampoo. This shampoo lathered right up! Cleaned on the first wash and did not look oily for two days. Two of them! Did I mention it smells amazing! Thank you for this product! It is wonderful don't change a thing!" —Ashlie32

    Price: $6.97

    10. Olive oil leave-in conditioner with Kalahari melon seed oil for added color protection. It'll do the job without leaving behind residue or making your mane feel greasy.


    Before you style, spray through your hair and brush from roots to ends.

    Price: $12.99

    11. A color-depositing shampoo that'll boost and maintain vivivd color after you leave the salon. It'll help prevent fading so you don't have to spend extra money getting touchups.


    Promising review: "This shampoo is awesome. I colored my hair in August and used this shampoo until mid January. My hair never faded until I stopped using it." —Literflit

    Price: $26.95 for purple. Also check out red, silver, lavender, and blue.

    12. A bottle of Moroccanoil curl cream so those with unruly curly hair can tame their locks, trapping in moisture and bounce. No one wants flat curls!

    Maitland Quitmeyer/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "During the summer after my sophomore year of college, I decided to cut my long hair into a lob. Once the chop occurred, my hairdresser (bless you, Andrea) told me to try Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream. And boy can I tell you, it is my DESERT ISLAND. HOLY GRAIL. hair product. It actually helps my hair dry in its natural curl formation and stay moisturized for days. It smells amazing and doesn't leave a greasy or sticky residue — it's just a miracle.

    I scrunch a few pumps into my wet hair and diffuse right away. First day or two, it's nice and bouncy with tighter curls — all due to the magic combo of the cream and the diffuser, which help curls dry IN PLACE. But what I love about this curl cream is that it helps my hair look as fresh as possible until the next shampoo...four or five days later. Because my hair is pretty heavy, the curls get looser and turn into what I'd term ~bushy waves~ — but thanks to the hydrating power of the curl cream, it doesn't fully explode into a cloud of frizz." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Price: $32

    13. Color Wow's root coverup powder to refresh your roots, making your hair appear thicker and fuller. The less money spent on touchups, the better!


    This cover-up is water- and sweat resistant and will stay in until you shampoo it out.

    Promising review: "This is the best grey root coverage I have used. Some sprays and mascara like color makes the hair sticky and stiff. This applies like eyeshadow, has an applicator, and does not make the hair stiff. It also covers shiny bald spots well and areas where thinner hair is noticeable." —CREAMANDSUGAR

    Price: $22+ (available in three shades)

    14. A bottle of argan oil that'll unclog hair follicles, promote growth, and increase hydration. With Vitamin E and keratin, it'll nourish brittle hair, reduce dandruff, and restore luster.


    This argan oil can also be used on your face and nails!

    Promising review: "I receive many compliments about my hair and skin since using this. I add to shampoo. My hair is so much softer, fuller, and longer." —Patty

    Price: $12.95

    15. A Conair round brush for short hair so you can achieve that salon-like blow out from the comfort of your own home. The tips of each bristle are coated so they won't scratch your scalp.


    Promising review: "This brush has a nice size barrel for drying. It's got an easy grip and a ridged handle which is good for control. I liked it so much, I ordered another one!" —Cocochugs

    Price: $3.88

    16. A bottle of L'Oreal Elnett Satin hairspray to keep your style in place all day long, no matter the weather conditions. Made for all hair types, the spray is humidity-resistant so you can get that Insta-worthy selfie even during the muggy summer months.


    Promising review: "I don't often use hairspray, and when I do my thick hair seems to best all the ones I've previously tried. I curled my hair for an outdoor event (I live where it's humid and hot), and used this hairspray. My curls were still in place three hours later after being outside! My hair didn't feel sticky either, which is a plus!" —EmSchofield

    Price: $4.38

    17. A Turbie Twist microfiber towel that'll dry your locks with less frizz. The super-absorbent towel features a tapered design and an elastic loop to hold your twist in place. That way, you can keep your hair up and drying as you apply makeup.

    @turbietwist via Instagram

    Promising review: "I got sick of using a large bath towel because it always fell off my head, and I feel like rubbing the rough bath towel on my hair was making the hairs rough, frizzy, and more prone to split ends. I have long hair and the Turbie Twist holds it all in place and absorbs so much water. I've noticed that my hair is already much softer since using this for a couple months instead of my usual rough bath towels! I bring it on trips because I love it so much!" —Shelby

    Price: $4.92

    18. A bottle of TRESemmé heat protectant spray, because styling your locks with a curler, flat iron, or blow dryer without coating hair can lead to split ends and dryness. The heat-activated formula will enhance your hair's ability to re-form and hold shape without damaging (AKA hold a curl without frying).


    Promising review: "I was originally using CHI Heat Guard and it often left my hair shiny, but very sticky. Then I switched to this. When I was done blow-drying, my hair was soft, silky, full of volume, and it even smelled nice! I am very impressed since my hair is naturally frizzy and VERY thick. TRESemmé delivers their best and I'm very glad to have found this product." —Marshmallow

    Price: $4.92

    19. A bottle of John Frieda Frizz Ease serum to kick frizz out the door and transform your mane into soft, shiny locks. It'll provide heat and humidity protection, plus hydrate and tame unruly hair.


    You can apply it directly to wet hair.

    Promising review: "WOW! This is a tremendous product! I never blow dry my hair so I was always looking for products that say 'use on wet hair.' This is the best! I applied it and did not have to do anything — which is what I want. What I got was shiny, soft hair with no little ends sticking out — no stickiness, no glue-like substance. I got out of the house without a cowlick, so that's a plus! I coat my hands with it when my hair is damp." —Fraurisa

    Price: $9.15

    20. A curling iron with a rotating barrel for effortless curls in no time. With five different temperature settings, you can create uniform curls or go for a looser, more natural looking wave.


    The wand only takes 30 seconds to heat up and has a 60 minute shut-off feature for safety!

    Promising review: "My holy grail of curling wands! This is so easy to use and you can get so many looks with it. Tight curls, beach waves, etc. I love playing around with it and getting different looks. The temperature options are great, not to mention how pretty the wand itself is and the case. I have many other high end expensive hair tools and this is finally giving me the curls I want. I have fine, thin blonde hair and my curls last. Also here is a tip: trying curling your hair with this with the wand down, such great waves!" —LFM

    Price: $55.16

    21. Biotin and keratin tablets that may help hair growth and improve texture. When taken regularly, they can also support healthy nail growth.


    Promising review: "This supplement really does work. I am a leery person when it comes to supplements. Normally I never take them. But, I was losing hair. I had a big bald spot in the back and my hair would come out by the handful. It took about six months of taking Biotin to see a result. But, the result was fantastic! I had wee baby hair growing in all over my head. It's been about nine months now and my hair is long, thick and lush. Biotin works! Now my husband is taking it to slow down his balding and it is working on him, too. I will do my best to take Biotin for the rest of my life." —JustJax

    Price: $5.94+ for 60 tablets (available as a pack of two)

    22. A Remington hair dryer with a diffuser and concentrator to dry your hair in half the time. The three heat settings and two speed settings + tourmaline technology will create less static, less frizz, and less damage.


    The diffuser is perfect for creating waves while the concentrator is best for getting straight hair.

    Promising review: "I don't regularly use hair dryers because they tend to be bulky and hard to manage, and they cause my hair to frizz right up. This one was different. It's extremely lightweight, and small enough that it's easy to hold and maneuver while still being able to work with your hair. I have very thick hair, and loved the diffuser attachment, which helped spread the heat through the long, thick lengths of my hair. I also LOVED the various heat settings! I used the warm setting, and appreciated that I had the option to use warm air instead of hot air, which always causes my hair to get super dry and frizz out. Great product with great features!" —khd023

    Price: $19.84

    23. A pack of Goody Ouchless elastics that are metal-free and super stretchy. They'll deliver a secure hold without any tearing or tugging.

    Price: $3.84+ for 30 elastics (available in packs)

    24. A bottle of Herbal Essences Totally Twisted mousse so your curls hold for hours on end. Made for colored and non-colored hair, the pH-balanced foaming mousse serves up intense humidity control.


    Promising review: "I love this mousse. I have naturally curly hair and this mousse is perfect. It doesn't leave my hair feeling oily or heavy. It gently lifts and separates my curls. I have been using this mousse for years, and it's been trusty." —horsemagnet

    Price: $2.97

    25. A bottle of Aussie Three-Minute Miracle deep conditioner that'll absorb quick to transform dry waves into silky, shiny strands. With avocado oil and jojoba oil, the creamy formula will penetrate deep down, giving you intense hydration in only three minutes!


    Promising review: "I love this conditioner! This stuff is amazing! I dye my hair ultimate platinum every year, and this conditioner helps me to keep it healthy and avoid breakage. You do not need a whole lot, and the smell is great too! Some of the coconut conditioners can smell off, in my opinion, and this one does not! My hair feels amazing all day long." —keylee74

    Price: $4.94

    26. Sectioning clips so you can style your hair without strands falling in your face. The rubber grips are perfect for holding hair for coloring treatments as well.

    The rollers require no pins or clips, and come in different sizes for different types of curls.

    Promising review: "My hair is thin and very silky. These curlers work well for me. If you take time and are careful how you wrap the hair around the curler and gently unroll, there should be no problem with pulling. It is the only curler that will stay in my hair, and add great bounce." —CatWhisperer

    Price: $6.17 for an assorted set of 31 rollers

    28. A keratin leave-in treatment with silk amino acids that'll boost hair and promote growth, while strengthening strands elasticity and silkiness. This baby is formulated to bring color-damaged and fried hair back to life!

    @itsa10haircare via Instagram

    Promising review: "This is literally a miracle. If you are like me and have a hard time brushing your hair out of the shower, this makes it so much easier to brush. I no longer rip my hair out. Ever since I have been using this my hair is so much healthier and so much nicer looking. It also smells great! Pricey, but worth it to have a better appearance of hair." —LeeLee

    Price: $29.08

    29. A bottle of DevaCurl Supercream coconut curl cream to tame unruly curls and reestablish the shine you're missing. It'll help lock in moisture so curls don't fall, but instead maintain a hydrated bounce.

    @devacurl via Instagram

    Promising review: "After using this, my curls are hydrated and soft. I apply this after conditioning, squeeze it into my curls, then apply the gel. My curls and waves are soft and manageable. No more crunchy, stinky curls." —Monni

    Price: $23.49

    30. An ultra-rich coconut shampoo with vanilla bean extract and tiare essence for the most damaged of manes. It'll rehydrate dry, brittle hair, delivering treatment to revive strands and restore luster.


    It's never too late to get island-like waves full of body and bounce!

    Promising review: "I've been using OGX products for several years now, and had been very pleased with the Coconut Milk collection. I have been using the Coconut Miracle Oil body wash and absolutely love it, so when I recently found my local store out of the Coconut Milk Conditioner, I decided to try it. It makes my hair soft, full of moisture, and super manageable. I've been coloring my hair for many years, so it has quite a bit of damage. I've spent way more on so-called "high-end hair products" with far less impressive results!" —Nitngl

    Price: $6.97

    31. A bottle of Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine anti-frizz serum so you can kiss flyaways and baby hairs goodbye once and for all. It works as a leave-in treatment to smooth strands that insist on frizzing.


    I use this serum to smooth the frizz around my face! It helps control those baby hairs that never seem to properly flatten when I style my hair.

    Promising review: "I am a mom to a beautiful little girl who lost her hair during medical treatment. When it regrew, it was very fine, but thick and wavy. Brushing it was sheer torture. I figured it wouldn't hurt to try a bit of my Sleek & Shine in her hair, and I can NOT get over the difference! We used to have to braid her hair before bed to have any chance of getting a brush through it in the morning. Now she goes to bed with her hair down, and I can finger comb it in the morning — no snags, no frizz and a BEAUTIFUL shine. For a little girl who has had to go through losing her hair, now getting constantly complimented on her beautiful locks puts her on cloud nine every time." —BeeMum

    Price: $4.94
