    1. A dry shampoo with a weightless formula that'll absorb excess oil, sure. But the winner winner chicken dinner? It'll also give your hair some VOLUME.

    Just spray this formula into your roots, brush it out, and BAM! Your hair will look clean, refreshed, and full within seconds.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite dry shampoo! I've tried a handful of other brands, from inexpensive to expensive, and this one takes the cake for me. It smells lovely, it works great, and it actually adds volume. One thing my stylist taught me is that you have to work dry shampoo into your hair like you would normal shampoo β€” so work it in to get the results! That advice mixed with this product is a recipe for success! Plus, you can't beat the price!" β€”Lynn

    Price: $3.89

    2. A deep conditioning mask formulated with keravis protein and argan oil to repair and strengthen your hair. I don't like to throw the phrase "holy grail" around, but..., / Via @evahairnyc

    This mask is particularly great for fine, thin hair because it moisturizes without making your mane greasy in the process. And as someone who has thin hair prone to oiliness...that's pretty damn hard to find.

    Psst, you can also use this mask as a regular conditioner!

    Promising review: "THIS STUFF IS MY HOLY GRAIL. I was not blessed with luscious locks. I have thin, lifeless, shoulder-length, color-treated blonde hair. I use this as a normal conditioner, and it doesn't weigh my hair down at all. I just leave it in for a few minutes and wash normally, and it leaves my hair so soft and extremely manageable. Plus, the price is great for the amount of product you receive!" β€”Laura Hart

    Price: $14.24

    3. A texturizing powder with a formula that absorbs moisture and can be ~reactivated~ when your hair falls flat. Just tousle your hair midday for more volume! / Via re

    Another great thing about this product? A little goes a long way AND the bottle is small enough to store in your bag.

    Promising review: "I have very thin hair and have tried everything. This is definitely my favorite hair product on the market! It adds texture at the root and, even though it leaves a slightly greasy texture that lets you tease your hair, it doesn't make your hair look greasy. This is a must-have!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $17.57 (for a pack of two)

    4. A sea salt shampoo that increases volume by up to 40%. How the HECK is that possible, you ask? You can thank the "caffeine vitality complex." / Via @johnfriedaus

    This caffeine complex will plump up your strands to thicken fine strands of hair. ALSO! This formula is safe for color-treated hair.

    Promising review: "After finishing the whole container of this shampoo, I have to say WOW. My hair is noticeably fuller without being coarse or rough. It is soft, shiny, holds better, and seems healthy! I was paying a fortune for other products that initially worked, but would eventually weigh my hair down into coarse, stick-like cartoon hair. This shampoo does a much better job at a fraction of the price." β€”Lori

    Price: $6.79

    5. A super hold hairspray you'll want to add to your cart ASAP. It doesn't flake, doesn't make your hair look stiff, will keep your blowout in place, and won't mat down your hair.,

    Promising review: "I have fine, thin hair and this is the best hair spray I've ever used. It doesn't make my hair look rigid, but my hair still stays put. With other sprays I've used in the past, my hair would stay in place for about an hour and then suddenly, it would be flat again. But this stuff helps my style stay put for hours, keeps it's body and volume, and doesn't look like it's been sprayed! This is on the more expensive side, but it's worth every penny." β€”bookreader

    Price: $15.87

    6. A volumizing tonic made with organic aloe, wheat amino acids, and essential oils to give your mane πŸ’ͺ body πŸ’ͺ and shine. / Via @aveda

    Promising review: "Love this product! I have really fine hair, so this tonic definitely adds volume without weighing down my hair or leaving me with oily build-up. I can still go a couple days without washing my hair, whereas other volumizing products I've used make my hair feel greasy after only a day." β€”Heather

    Price: $24.98

    7. A detangling conditioner that will thicken your hair and leave it shining brighter than Rihanna's diamonds without weighing it down in the process.

    15. A curling wand that 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.,

    I personally own this curling wand and cannot say enough good things about it. So cheap, so good.
