    32 Holy Grail Hair Products You May Want To Try

    Rise and shine, said my new favorite under-$10 hair product.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A silicone-free L’Oreal lamellar treatment that makes good on its promise of shine, shine, shine. This banishes dullness in eight seconds flat, giving your mane all that lustrous bounce but thankfully *none* of the weigh-down.

    Apply this directly to wet hair avoiding the roots, massage it in for eight seconds, then rinse. Effort required = practically zero.

    Promising review: "i have very thin, dry, and damaged hair due constantly dying it blonde. I’ve tried so many hair products and different types of shampoo and conditioners, and nothing seems to really help my hair. BUT this stuff literally is magic. I’ve used it three times and I haven’t seen my hair look this good (shiny, healthy, hydrated)." —Nikki Minnis

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    2. An Oribe texturizing spray considered a holy grail amongst the ~thin hair~ community. It's all very simple: Spray this on dry hair for an immediate root lift — and buildable, non-greasy volume will be delivered with just a few spritzes.

    Promising review: "I've tried way too many texture/salt/powder sprays to achieve the tousled look on my fine pixie cut hair and they just did not work. Other brands either left me with dried out, gummy, sticky hair or did absolutely nothing, zero, nada! So in the throes of total desperation I paid the outrageous price for this can. I really didn't think it was worth all the hype until I used it. Let me just say, it is worth the price. This gives a great tousled look yet leaves your hair feeling like there is nothing there! Not sticky, gummy, or drying but soft, full of texture, movement, body, and IT DOES'T TAKE A LOT TO ACHIEVE THIS [thanks to the Oribe gods for that]." —Donna OBrien

    Get it from Amazon for $23.

    3. Pantene treatment ampoules dubbed ~rescue shots~ because they bring dried, fried, dead hair back to life. Pro-vitamin b5 guarantees a deep condition, repairing split-ends and leaving a shiny, frizz-free 'do behind.

    Promising review: "This is great for frizzy hair. I have coarse, frizzy, wavy hair that gets routinely box-dyed. This product is basically a miracle. It doesn’t fix my hair, but I notice improvement after I use it. Much softer and more tame. Definitely recommend it!" —TheReviewer

    Get a two packs of three from Amazon for $9.56.

    4. A Remington wand capable of doing the Impossible (yes, Impossible with a capital "I"). This miracle tool allows even the finest, straightest of manes to hold the most voluminous beach waves: Just wrap your hair around the barrel, wait a few seconds, and you're done. Minimal effort required. Several tears shed.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    This wand heats up within 30 seconds and has a 60-second automatic shut-off feature, meaning you'll never have any midday did-I-turn-off-my-curler panics ever again. The barrel also comes in 1-inch and 1.5-inch sizes, heats up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit (and can be adjusted), and has a ceramic coating for even heat distribution.

    SIDE NOTE: I have been using the same Remington wand for about six (maybe seven) years and it is truly a gift from above. For reference, I have super straight, thin hair that usually can't ever hold a curl, but this helps me achieve a full head of beach waves in under 15 minutes.

    Promising review: "I have had this for five years and it still works amazingly. I use it so much that people don't know my hair is naturally straight, and I get compliments on it all the time. Honestly, I cannot believe how well this works and how long it's lasted considering how cheap it is. I bought this on a whim (cause it's only $20!) and it is one my greatest purchases of all time." —madison

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97+ (available in two barrel sizes).

    5. A Neutrogena clarifying shampoo because that 10 pounds of dry shampoo you used two days ago is still trapped in your roots. Trust me. It didn't exactly run away. This anti-residue wash deep cleans build-up that would otherwise lead to lack of body, excessive grease, and *gulp* stringiness.

    Amazon

    This non-irritating shampoo should be used once a week (using it too much may make your hair overly dry) and is gentle enough to use on any hair type, including color-treated manes.

    Promising review: Getting all the residue left from other hair care products absolutely transforms my hair. I have a lot of fine/thin hair which can get weighed down pretty quick. This comes is a really crisp bottle that is the perfect size, not to mention that since you don't use it every day, it is lasting such a long time." —Dillon Okimosh

    Get it from Amazon for $4.74.

    6. An Herbal Essences volume shampoo capable of delighting your tresses *and* nose thanks to the invigorating scent of mint and citrus. Not only does a blend of essential antioxidants, aloe, and sea kelp promote hair health and body, but it's also free of icky dyes, parabens, and aluminum.

    Promising review: "I love this shampoo. It smells amazing and leaves my baby-fine hair feeling lightweight and even adds a little lift at the roots!" —Joy

    Get it from Target for $5.99.

    7. An R+Co paste with all the benefits of your favorite dry shampoo (grease = a true arch nemesis), but all the benefits of a styling paste!? It's truly ludicrous how well this works at tackling two problems: absorbing oil whilst adding texture.

    Megan Paolone / BuzzFeed

    This product takes some fab ingredients: We're talking volcanic ash, coconut oil, zeolite, sunflower seed extract, and argain oil.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? I have tried multiple dry shampoos and none of them have worked. A little but of this goes a long way and makes a huge difference in my fine hair, which usually looks greasy by the end of the day. This stuff is the best." —MDKH

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    8. A John Frieda hot air brush, because an average straightener usually takes ALL the volume out of your roots (cc: pin-straight styles reminiscent of Jersey Shore days). This easy-to-use tool will give you a salon-quality blowout that is shockingly easy to achieve.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    This hot brush is designed to look exactly like a lightweight round brush, except this one is fancy and emits even heat! It's also designed with ionic technology to increase shine and prevent frizz.

    Promising review: "I am no professional hair stylist, nor do I have time to do my hair everyday (I'm a mommy of two) but I must say that this brush makes getting ready so much easier. It's fairly simple to use. I like my hair to have a lot of volume (I have thin hair) and my layers to show (please excuse my dead ends), so that look is easy to achieve with this tool. This adds lot of volume and adds a nice wave to the end of your hair. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a nice, easy blowout!" —C.

    Get it from Amazon for $36.98+.

    9. An Amika straightening brush designed with impressive iRed technology so heat can more rapidly penetrate your hair. In English? This thing reduces straightening time by up to half (#bless), ion projectors and a ceramic base promise smoothness and shine, plus it doesn't give that "pin-straight" effect that basically ruins your chance at volume and body.

    Promising review: "The Amika brush leaves my hair smooth and silky, but it still had some volume, which I like compared to the pin-straight results I get from my straightening iron. Also, the Amika felt much more gentle on my hair than my straightening iron, which can sometimes feel like it's burning my hair. All in all, I recommend it for people who want to straighten their hair while still maintaining volume, are searching for a new daily straightening appliance that holds up to its promises, and people who don't mind the price tag." — Hannah Loewentheil, BuzzFeed writer

    Get it from Sephora for $120.

    10. A cult-favorite Fanola purple shampoo to nip brassiness in the bud. The violent pigment in this formula works to wash away unwanted yellow in your 'do, meaning you can extend the time between salon visits meaning you can SAVE A TON OF MONEY. Easy + affordable? Someone pinch me.

    reviewer before-and-after photo of hair going from brassy to light brown
    amazon.com

    Use this only once a week (for about three minutes at a time) to prevent your hair from turning a slightly lavender shade.

    Promising review: "Finally! A purple shampoo that actually does something to my brassy hair! I have silver-white hair that is exceptionally hard to maintain due to how easily my hair gains brassy tones and how stubborn they are to remove. I've tried a ton of other brands, and none of their toning shampoos will do a damn thing to my hair even if I leave them on for an hour. I normally have to dilute violet direct dyes to make a dent in my brass. It's nice to not have to schedule a chunk of time to mix a batch of custom toner, painstakingly apply it, and then sit around for an hour while it does its stuff. This shampoo actually works really well and can cut a lot of time out of my bi-weekly color maintenance." —Audrey

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    11. A Davine's milk spray considered a haircare jack-of-all-trades. A blend of roucou oil controls frizz, increases shine and softness, detangles, *and* provides heat protection. All it takes is a spritz.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Can't live without this hair product. It doesn't weigh your hair down, makes hair super soft, and can let your hair air dry or blow dry it out; either way, it has the same great smoothing effect without any excess oil or weight. SMELLS AMAZING! People always comment on the smell of my hair even after it is dry." —Michelle R. Heil

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in two sizes).

    12. An Xtava diffuser for the most *chef kisses* defined curls of your life. This tool is designed with 360 degree airflow, which is just a fancy way of saying that heat is evenly distribute to dry each strand to perfection without causing any unwanted frizz in the process.

    amazon.com

    This diffuser has a 1.8-inch diameter, meaning it'll attach perfectly to ~most~ hairdryers.

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE this diffuser! This is THE BEST diffuser I have ever used. I have super thick, long, naturally curly hair and not only does this diffuser dry my hair super fast, it honestly gives my hair volume and bounce. And amazingly, when I use this instead of air-drying, my curls are not frizzy!" —Georgia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    13. A Hask shampoo + conditioner duo to provide tresses with an extra layer of protection, using organic rose oil and peach extract to seal in color while also giving bounce, body, and shine. Want to be cast in a shampoo commercial? This is step one toward that royalty check.

    Promising review: "This product made my fine, color-treated, and slightly damaged hair feel shiny, bouncy, and smelling fresh and clean (without being overpowering). I will honestly never use another shampoo/conditioner again after finding this product! I LOVE it!" —Joy Evans

    Get the set from Amazon for $14.20.

    14. A Playa textured spray so you can bring beach benefits to your haircare routine without having to, well, go to the beach. This blend of sea salt and chia seed extract easily delivers that sought after "tousled but voluminous" look — the kind that otherwise takes a ton of tears, time, and hot tool use.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This spray is the only way I can wear my straight, fine hair down without using hot tools. I spray my hair (slightly damp or dry), twist into two buns, spray again, and leave the buns in while I do my makeup (15-30 minutes). Then I take the buns out and give my hair one more spritz. It gives great texture, a bit of volume, and soft wave. I’ve tried other similar products, but this one is by far my favorite." —Bruin2015

    Get it from Sephora for $24.

    15. Mini hair pins to give you the ballerina bun of your pirouette-packed dreams. Just one of these little pins can do the work of up to *20* hair pins, ridding the need of those excessive random pins that would otherwise just dig into your scalp. (Plus, it's a ~fancy updo~ that implies real effort and not a way to hide the fact that you, for example, have not washed your hair in days.)

    amazon.com

    How does it work? Just gather your hair, pull it into a super tight bun, spin the pins into place, and BAM! You've got yourself the perfect bun.

    Promising review: "I'm a nursing student and have to wear my hair in a bun every day. I've tried all the bun makers, watched YouTube videos, and spend way too much time on getting my hair into a bun. I was able to make a pretty bun that was secure in under 30 seconds. I thought it was a fluke so I did it again, and then again. I just ordered two more packs because I know if I lose one of these, I'd have to tear the house down looking for it. I have hair to my mid back, and three of these worked perfectly for me. If I can get my hair in bun in under 30 seconds, trust me...anyone can." —Tina

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.29.

    16. A plant-based gel cream that works OT to tame those pesky flyaways that no amount of brushing can get rid of. The best part? This formula is non-greasy, completely transparent, and the mascara wand makes it super easy to apply.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was surprised to find that this product is very easy to use and extremely effective. It didn't leave my hair looking greasy or sticky and it works great for baby hairs around the face." —GoBlue

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. A vegan Malibu C treatment to prep your 'do for color application: Just leave this on for five minutes to remove color-blocking build-up, ~apply some dye~ within 24 hours, and voila! Your tresses are now a blank canvas that will allow for better color absorption and less fading after leaving the salon.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Best. Product. Ever. I tried this at the advice of my hairstylist because my color was not taking well and it faded within days of application. You use this product within 24 hours of coloring your hair, shampoo as usual, then pour the crystals from the packet into your hand. Just add warm water, apply to your hair, and you will INSTANTLY feel change happening. I could actually feel GUNK coming off my hair. The result was my hair looking shinier, more bouncy, and so much softer. The color also just took better and lasted much longer."

    Get it from Amazon for $3.70.

    18. A John Frieda brunette-enhancing glaze ideal for anyone trying to extend time between salon visits *or* anyone trying to nix salon visits all together. This weekly treatment focuses on maximizing shine for a mirror-like effect while bringing out your natural brown color (and covering up grays).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have naturally dark, chestnut hair and I had gotten tired of the expense of coloring in the salon and the damage it was doing to my hair. I spent the last year growing out all the damage from highlights and color. My hair was healthy and shiny, but it started to getting gray! But this provided unbelievable results. Not only did this camouflage the gray hairs by tinting them blonde, but it gave my overall natural color a rich, lustrous shine. This is well worth the money." —Lisa Combs

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    19. A Moroccanoil foam mousse that is ~step one~ on your quest for more defined curls. This lightweight formula enlists the help of argan oil (v. rich in antioxidants) to fight frizz, separate curls, and add bounce. And it won't weigh down your hair! Volume and locks that would make Shirley Temple jealous are now yours for the taking.

    Promising review: "Love this mousse! I have lots of fine, curly hair. This product is lightweight yet strong enough to plump up my curls without weighing down each fine hair. My girlfriend gave it to me because she didn't like it (she has fuller, thicker curly hair)." —Chet

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    20. An HSI straightener designed with ceramic, tourmaline crystal ion plates that evenly distribute heat with every pass. This means you'll have to run over individual sections of hair a fewer amount of times to straighten it, thus preventing unnecessary heat damage. What's fried? Your food! But not your hair!

    amazon.com

    This also comes with a travel-sized pack of argan oil you can use post-straightening for maximum sleekness.

    Promising review: "I have been using this for months and I LOVE it. I have long, thick, wavy/frizzy hair, that has ponytail ridges in it constantly. This straightener leaves my hair looking like I just got it straightened at the salon. Plus, it used to take me three hours to straighten my hair and it now only takes 40 minutes!" —Catherine G.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.89.

    21. A Briogeo micro-exfoliating shampoo to replace product build-up and dry flakes with a moisturized, soothed scalp. If you've been trying to grow out your mid-length 'do for, oh, forever, then this is a must-try; it's actually packed with panthenol (a #fancy vitamin) to strengthen your hair at the root.

    instagram.com / Via @briogeo

    This uses an impressive blend of peppermint, spearmint, and tea tree oil complex as well as charcoal, coconut oil, and panthenol. Plus, it's vegan, cruelty-free, dye-free, and silicone-free so DING DING DING I think we have a winner. Just use this as you would a regular shampoo!

    Promising review: "I can't say enough about this product! I am someone who has a chronically oily scalp and had to wash my hair everyday. I tried so many different products to try and stop the cycle, and this is the first thing that has actually worked. My hair and scalp feel moisturized without looking greasy at all for the two to three days between washes, which is huge for me. I have been able to use is about every two to three weeks to revive my scalp and it smells great, too." —morrillk2

    Get it from Sephora for $42+.

    22. A Celeb Luxury color depositing shampoo for anyone who would like to turn their ~Pinterest pastel~ dreams into reality (no expensive or time-consuming trips to the salon required). This actively hits the refresh button on color-treated hair that fades after just one wash, sparing you the heartbreak of feeling like you just wasted a ton of money for no reason. You just dyed it light blue! It shouldn't be bleach blond after 1.5 days!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This shampoo works best on bleached or naturally blond hair, and can be used just like a regular shampoo — lather on a generous amount, give your mane a good scrubbing, rinse thoroughly, and that's it! The color will have a more faded effect after the first use, but will be significantly more vibrant after the second wash.

    Psst, this formula is also vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and formaldehyde-free!

    Promising review: "This shampoo is a serious game changer. I have been bleaching and dying my hair pink on and off for years, and it has always faded disappointingly fast. I ended up getting into a routine where I would dye my hair magenta just so it would fade to the pastel pink I wanted — but not anymore! This shampoo allows me to dye my hair a pastel pink and then reapply the color with every shampoo. It comes out bright and beautiful. I used to head to the salon every six to eight weeks, but I can now stretch it out to twelve. Bonus: the shampoo lathers, smells great, and is vegan!" —Mary Colleen

    Get it from Amazon for $35 (available in 12 colors).

    23. An eco-friendly Ethique shampoo bar you'll want to purchase ASAP because a) it adds a ton of body to even the finest of tresses and b) just one bar is the equivalent of three bottles of liquid shampoo. Volume + money saved = my definition of bliss.

    Amazon

    This pH-balanced bar uses orange, cinnamon, ginger, and salt for bouncy hair.

    If ~volume~ isn't a problem you're seeking a solution for, then no worries because Ethique offers eight different formulas for eight different hair concerns (ranging from frizz and damage to dryness and oily scalps).

    Promising review: "I have been using this frizz wrangler shampoo bar for a month now and I am amazed by it! First of all, it cleans my hair well — so well that I can now go three days between washing! (With other shampoos, my hair would be greasy and flat by day two.) It is so light, doesn’t weigh my hair down, lathers well, and rinses clean. It’s important to let the bar dry out completely in between uses so it doesn’t crumble and disintegrate." —P. Bin

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in eight scents).

    24. Garnier Fructis one-minute hair masks about to Evanescence the heck out of your hair — in other words, it'll bring it back to life (😉). This is available in six different formulas to tackle your specific hair concerns; avocado to smooth, banana to strengthen, coconut to nourish, goji berry to enhance color, and papaya for damage repair.

    Promising review: "The best! This is an amazing conditioner and deep treatment. I live in the desert and have very dry, damaged hair. My hair is sensitive to harsh chemicals and this product is super gentle! This product has been a lifesaver for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $3.40+ (available in six formulas and two sizes).

    25. An Aveda daily treatment for dead, bleached hair in need of some major TLC. This 98% naturally-derived blend works to combat four types of damage (environmental, chemical, physical, and heat) while reducing breakage by up to 90% in about a week.

    instagram.com / Via @aveda

    This cruelty-free formula includes quinoa protein to strengthen hair and make it longer, while macadamia conditioning oil promotes a smoother, more nourished mane free of split-ends and flyaways.

    Promising review: "Can’t say enough good things about it. Most leave-in moisturizers are heavy and make your hair either flat or oily, but this stuff is so light that you wouldn't know it was applied if your hair didn't turn so wickedly soft. It works equally well with air dried or blow dried hair; I use a dime-sized amount on my ends AFTER showering/washing hair and brushing through, then I'll wrap hair in a towel and wait for about10 minutes. This makes your hair super soft and literally fixes split-ends." —Reviewer64

    Get it from Nordstrom for $30.

    26. A Drybar blow dryer here to cut drying time by up to 20%, which is something worthy of applause. Plus, ionic technology seals in shine and prevents frizz, a nine-foot chord makes this a dream for bathrooms with limited outlets, and the dryer itself is lightweight!

    Sephora

    Promising review: "An absolute dream for someone with thick, hard to dry hair. I have thick long hair and I took a chance on this dryer because all the cheap drugstore brands had me trying to dry my hair for like, 45 minutes. This dream dryer did the job in about seven mins. I can only imagine how it works for those with shorter or fine hair. Best money I ever spent. Lightweight too. Easy to hold. Worth it!" —orlandogal17

    Get it from Sephora for $199.

    27. A sulfate- and silicone-free Living Proof shampoo and conditioner with a favorite seven-letter word: H-E-A-L-T-H-Y. This combo gently cleanses and nourishes your hair back to health, protecting it from potential UV and hard water damage. Who dyes their hair every eight weeks? You! But with this stuff, it won't look like it.

    Promising review: "I don’t know if it’s the combo of both the shampoo and the conditioner or just one of the products, but this has left my mother-in-laws hair the softest it has ever been — and she has thick, coarse, processed hair since she dyes it regularly to cover up grays. Her hair has never been this healthy and she hasn’t even finished using one bottle yet!" —Elizabeth Luviano

    Get the shampoo and conditioner from Amazon for $29 each.

    28. A shampoo brush to increase the effectiveness of your shampoo by helping clear away built-up product — the kind that would lead to dullness and lack of body. This little silicone tool also works to stimulate your scalp and improve circulation, which can lead to speedier hair growth.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'd like to say that this thing is one of the goofiest looking products I have ever bought in my entire life. That being said, it is one of my favorite products I've ever had, and I preach the wonders of this thing to anyone and everyone who will listen. Since purchasing it, I have cut down my use on shampoo AND CONDITIONER by HALF. I have long, color-treated, mildly damaged hair and I used to go through shampoo and conditioner like WATER. Now I don't feel so guilty about purchasing more expensive products because this little tool makes it go such a long way. It lathers beautifully, cleans my scalp, and distributes conditioner evenly. Also, the feeling is spine-tingling, literally like having a tiny hair stylist just washing your hair for you. The best part is, it gets my hair SO CLEAN that I don't need to wash as often either, which is the cherry on top. Seriously, do yourself a favor, treat yo' self, and get the thing. You won't regret it." —Allison Brittain

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    29. A vegan and cruelty-free Ghost shampoo capable of cutting down on grease *without* being too harsh on your mane. A mix of moringa oil, quinoa protein, and sunflower seed extract works together to repair damage and strengthen your hair...all while stopping dryness and brassiness in their tracks.

    instagram.com / Via @verbproducts

    Promising review: "This is the best shampoo I’ve ever used! I have long, fine, highlighted hair that I can’t wash my hair every day, so my shampoo has to cut through a somewhat greasy scalp and still be gentle since my hair is super fine. With this, my hair doesn’t look oily on the second day and it’s manageable until I wash it every other day. It’s by far the best shampoo I’ve ever used." —lochall

    Get it from Sephora for $16.

    30. A vegan, cruelty-free, travel-sized Handmade Heroes tinted dry shampoo specifically formulated for darker hair. This will sweep up all that grease *without* leaving a white cast on your scalp (something that often happens on brunette manes).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been trying to get away from washing my hair every other day for a while. I've tried many dry shampoos and hate the aerosol kind because don't absorb the oil and/or leave a white residue. I have tried powder dry shampoo from a well known salon and it left my hair feeling like I had some waxy buildup. THIS dry shampoo though... WOW. Easy to apply, no white residue, a little goes a long way, and I went three days without shampooing!" —A. Cherry

    Get it from Amazon for $12.90.

    31. A WetBrush designed with OmniFlex technology, which is just a fancy way of saying it conforms to your scalp to quickly and painlessly detangle your 'do. It slides through any kind of hair — whether super straight or curly — within mere minutes, saving you a ton of post-shower styling time.

    instagram.com / Via @thewetbrush, instagram.com / Via @thewetbrush

    This is even wonderful if you have thick, curly hair that has resulted in one (or several) broken brushes. It may look flimsy, but it's seriously the exact opposite of flimsy!

    Promising review: "I have fine, color-treated hair that gets easily tangled. I had been using a detangling shower comb, but still managed to pull out and break hair every day! I was skeptical about using a brush and figured, what the heck, if it doesn't work, I can return it. OMG! Great buy! It easily detangles my hair (I brush it through while I have conditioner on it) and there's almost no breakage. I won't lie, yes there's still hair on the brush, but nothing like the detangling comb. This one's a definite keeper!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in pink).

    32. A Verb restorative oil to take 👏 on 👏 frizz 👏. This lightweight blend of bamboo extract, moringa seed oil, and argan oil restores dehydrated ends with very little product, taming frizz and adding shine with each and every application.

    Alice Prendergast / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have naturally thick hair that has a tendency to tangle and be mighty frizzy after washes. This stuff has made my hair silky soft and I am actually able to run my hands through it in the morning after showering! It is really the only product I have come across that not only makes my hair nice and shiny and healthy, but I'm able to apply to damp hair and just let it naturally dry before work without making it a frizz show the rest of the day." —Julia
