    I use one of these to distribute my hair oils and serums from the roots to the tips of my strands. It helps each one of my tresses get equal product love, not just the top layer (and gives me a bomb scalp massage, too). My boyfriend, on the other hand, uses them both simultaneously like some kind of haircare wolverine to scrub his scalp down and keep dandruff at bay. To be honest, it's hilarious to watch, but it also seems to be working for him.

    3. A bottle of Sulfur8 treatment that's designed for people who wear their hair in braids, locks, and twists, or rock extensions on the regular. Reviewers say it cleared up their dandruff in a flash and love that it keeps their hair moisturized, too.

    "I thought this was going to be gimmicky and leave my strands feeling dirty and lifeless, but let me tell you — I WAS WRONG, OKAY? As someone who uses products in her hair on the daily, it has changed the game for me. It removes dry skin and product build-up so easily, and it has a cooling minty smell that makes me feel tingly from head to toe." —Victoria Kuglin

    5. This Canadian-made essential oil shampoo that uses peppermint and tea tree to leave your scalp feeling fresher than ever. Reviewers say it's a total game changer for people who suffer from eczema and dandruff, and that it gives them better results than medicated alternatives.
