    24 Life-Changing Products You Probably Need If Your Hair Is Out Of Control Right Now

    Please excuse the rat's nest on my head.

    1. A bottle of Verb Ghost Oil that's infused with bamboo extract, moringa seed oil, and argan oil to strengthen your locks and minimize frizz. It's thicker than most hair serums, and delivers some serious hydrating results with just a few pumps.

    2. A soft flannel headband to hold your hair back while you do your makeup or go through your skincare routine. It won't pull at your tresses like clips or a hair elastics, so there's no need to stress about breaking your precious locks.

    3. A Vanity Planet Rejuvenating Scalp Massager that can be used in and out of the shower. It can increase blood flow to your scalp to encourage hair growth, distribute your scalp's natural oils to promote shine, and even help control dandruff (everything we all want).

    4. A bottle of SheaMoisture Curl + Style Milk, a leave-in conditioning treatment that'll keep your curls bouncy and free of frizz. Reviewers say it works wonders on tight curls (type four, if you're a pro) and love that it doesn't leave any residue behind.

    5. The Ordinary's one and only hair product, a multi-peptide serum, a that'll bless you with fuller, thicker hair. It'll also help you achieve some volume, if you've been suffering from a case of limp locks.

    6. A tub of restorative treatment mask that'll transform your hair inside and out. Reviewers say that it works wonders at adding moisture back to colour-treated tresses and is especially great for bleached locks.

    7. A bottle of Happy Campers, a lightweight treatment spray that'll strengthen your hair and protect it from harm. It'll also give it a bit more oomph, if your locks are lacking body.

    8. A tub of Briogeo Scalp Revival micro-exfoliating shampoo that's packed with coconut oil and charcoal to banish built-up product and dry skin like a dream. Buh-bye, dandruff!

    9. A purple hair mask that'll breathe new life into your bleach job and help you banish brassy tones. Yes, it's on the pricier side, but now you won't have to visit your colourist to get your locks toned for a few more months, so it'll probably save you money in the long run.

    10. A luxe silky pillowcase that'll make you feel like you're staying at a five-star hotel when you crawl into bed at night. It'll cause less friction on your hair than a regular pillowcase, meaning it will minimize breakage if you're prone to tossing and turning.

    11. A bottle of Aveda leave-in conditioner that's packed with pomegranate seed oil, galanga root, and a ton of other good-for-you ingredients. It's basically a superfood smoothie for your hair and will replenish and detangle your locks, too.

    12. A bottle of Living Proof dry shampoo that will make your dirty hair feel clean without even stepping in the shower (because let's face it, hygiene is not our top priority ATM). It also makes for a stellar texturizing spray, if you want to add a little body to your 'do.

    13. A set of coiled hair ties that'll keep your hair free of crazy crimps and tangles, and won't cause breakage when you slide them off. They also look cuter than classic hair ties when you rock them on your wrists.

    14. A bottle of Ouai Hair Oil that's suuuuper light and great for fine hair. It works actual miracles on frizz and won't weigh your locks down, so you can maintain some volume.

    15. A bottle of heat protection oil that'll hit your hair with a dose of vitamins before you get down to business with your styling tools. It's infused with coconut, grapeseeed, marula and moringa oils to give you a glossy, hair commercial-level finish.

    16. A pack of assorted scrunchies that are super soft, so they won't tug on your hair. They're made of metallic fabric, so even your messiest bun will look chic as heck.

    17. A Garnier papaya hair mask that deep conditions and hydrates your hair to the max without leaving it oily. It's also vegan and silicone free, which is great if you're on the hunt for more natural hair products.

    18. A tube of Alterna anti-frizz balm that'll keep those annoying flyaways at bay. Reviewers say it's great for both straight and curly hair and love how lightweight it is.

    19. A microfibre hair towel that'll help prevent breakage, split ends, and frizz. It also works its magic faster than a traditional towel, so you won't be tempted to give up and turn to your blowdryer.

    20. A bottle of Captain Blankenship sea salt spray that'll give you beachy waves without setting foot in the sand. It's got a bit of sparkle to it, so a few spritzes will make your locks more luminous, too.

    21. A set of '90s-inspired mini hair clips to keep your hair out of your face. They're great for pinning back overgrown bangs, if you haven't had a chance to see your stylist in a while.

    22. A Tangle Teezer brush, because getting out of the shower with a head full of tangles is zero fun. It'll breeze through your hair without ripping or pulling at strands, wet, damp, or dry.

    23. A gossamer headscarf that you can use to protect your hair (or hide your roots, if you're not exactly happy with how they're growing in). It looks cute as heck and nobody will know you're secretly a brunette.

    24. And finally, if your hair just isn't doing what you want it to, a semi-permanent hair colouring mask, so at least you can have a little fun. It's packed with apricot and argan oils, so it'll make your hair feel silky and hydrated, too.

    You now that your hair is finally under control:
