Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Eva NYC Satin Dream Leave-In Cream detangles, smoothes, and moisturizes, using the power of Keravis and argan oil.

    This stuff smells sooooooo good. It's a pretty solid leave-in conditioner that makes my hair soft, but the real draw is the amazing scent. I usually put just a dollop in damp hair and then let it air dry.

    Promising review: "Smells great, feels like silk but doesn't feel oily, and it is lightweight. It didn't make my hair feel weighed down or heavy. Very impressed that it performed so well! I put it on after towel drying my hair then blow dried as usual. This is easy to apply. My hair felt so lightweight and this added shine for sure!" —Rollingbeauty37

    Get it from Ulta for $8.99.

    2. Coco & Eve Like a Virgin Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque nourishes dry hair, improves texture, tames frizz, and adds shine. Plus it smells like coconut and fig, so you might get hungry after using it.,

    After just one use I could feel an immediate difference when I used this masque! It smells great and leaves my hair feeling much healthier.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.90 or Asos for $49.99

    3. IGX Mistress has instant results — just apply to damp hair and feel your hair immediately become more manageable and silky.

    This stuff is extremely legit! It smells great and I can feel a difference the second I put it in my hair. It's lightweight and makes my hair a lot more manageable.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product. I have literally spent years and hundreds of dollars trying various products that either weigh my hair down or don't do what they say they will. I tried this on a whim and love it! This will be a staple for me. It smells delicious, moisturizes, and smoothes even in the most humid days. My hair stays light and soft. FYI, my hair is fine and course, wavy and dry. Highly recommend!" —antied77

    Get it from Sephora or Urban Outfitters for $29.

    4. A silk pillowcase makes sleeping feel extra luxurious, plus it doesn't pull or tangle your hair like a traditional pillow case.

    I have one and can confirm these babies are great! The case has silk on both sides and has a zipper so your pillow stays secure inside. Since using this, my bedhead has been way less alarming. I usually dry clean this or hand-wash, but reviewers say it can be machine-washed with no problem.

    Promising review: "WOW!!!! These pillows are just amazing — so soft and luxurious. I bought two just to make sure this is good quality silk and now I'm going to order three more. I washed them on silk cycle when I got them and they are so worth the money." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in 30 colors and three sizes).

    5. HSI Professional Argan Oil Heat Protector keeps your hair safe (or safer, at least) from harmlful heat tools and adds an extra glossiness that you're gonna love.

    I always use this before reaching for the blow dryer or straightener. It has a pretty strong scent, so I open a window before spraying it or step into a larger room. This definitely helps fight heat damage and leaves my hair a little softer and shinier.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    6. Sephora's hair sleeping masks are kind of like shower caps that treat your hair while you're asleep and give you the best dreams of all: healthier, softer hair.

    Promising review: "The hair cap is really good quality. The acai mask left my color-treated hair looking terrific; it's bright and beautiful. I would definitely buy again. My hair is also incredibly soft and less frizzy after use. My scalp was super dry before I used it and I can tell it has helped with that issue as well. So happy with product!" —Trisana86

    Get it from Sephora for $5 (available in four scents).

    7. A microfiber towel doesn't have those little thread loops like regular towels, so you can prevent unnecessary damage and stop frizz before it even starts.

    Those tiny loops in traditional towels will pull on your hair and cause breakage. Microfiber towels will never betray you like that, AND they dry hair faster.

    Promising review: "WOW is all I have to say about this hair towel. I have extremely long and thick hair and have always had to use a regular bath towel to wrap my hair, which caused our bath towels to get soaking wet and smell gross after a while. No hair towels have ever been able to hold/dry all of my hair...until THIS ONE. It's the biggest hair towel I've been able to find and I'm able to wrap all of my hair, saving my bath towels from the wrath of my hair. It's awesome. My ONLY minor complaint is that it gets dingy after a while, especially after you wash it a few times if you're using it everyday, like me. But for the extremely low price, I don't mind having to buy a new one every few months or so. LOVE this product!!!" —Kasey T

    Get it from Amazon for $13.77+ (available in two colors).

    8. Herstyler Hair Repair Serum harnesses the power of argan oil, vitamin E, and aloe to tame your frizz and give your hair a nice, healthy shine.,

    Promising review: "I found this product through a BuzzFeed article for those with frizzy hair and THIS PRODUCT DID NOT DISAPPOINT, PEOPLE! I put this serum through the wringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium length hair." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    9. Neutrogena clarifying shampoo scrubs your hair of any product build-up, keeping it lightweight and silky soft.

    This shampoo is a must for everyone! Use it once a week to "reset" your scalp and get rid of the residue that's weighing down your hair. My hair has felt a lot healthier and softer since using this. Just remember not to use it too often because it does dry out your hair a little bit.

    Promising review: "After moving to Colorado Springs I noticed that my hair felt dry as straw and look dull. The hard water build up on my tresses was causing me great stress! So, I ordered this clarifying shampoo. I love the way the shampoo smells and the way it leaves my hair feeling softer and cleaner. After one use my hair literally looked shinier and less dull." —Mentally in Paris

    Get it from Amazon for $4.83.

    10. Olaplex Perfector Repairing Treatment claims to work on a molecular level inside the hair so it's basically rebuilding your follicles from the ground up.,

    Promising review: "MAGIC!!!! I swear this stuff is made from unicorns. I was doubtful, given that I have tried the gamut of hair conditioning treatments (yes, yes, I know this is NOT a conditioner, but a bonder) and all I have to say is WOWZA! After some really harsh processing (got my hair from dark dark brown to very, very blonde so I could add funky colors), my hair more closely resembled hay than it did actual hair and as the weeks went on, the breakage started getting worse. I tried this at my last feeble attempt to salvage my locks after a friend recommended it and I am BLOWN AWAY by the results! It really does work. I won't lie and tell you my hair is back to its normal state, but it has SIGNIFICANTLY improved. It is smoother, softer, and even has some of the weight back!" —

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    11. Garnier Fructis 1 Minute Hair Mask is an affordable hair mask option that makes your hair silky soft faster than you get their commercial song stuck in your head.

    Here is the Transplants song for you, because I know you want to listen to it now.

    Promising review: "It was packaged well and smells amazing. I am mixed with 3C hair and was looking for something to help bring the moisture back. It is important to me that my hair products avoid drying alcohols, silicones, and parabens. This treatment fits the bill! I applied after finger detangling in the shower and plopped my hair into a shower cap for a few hours. It looks and smells great! I will be repurchasing soon." —Rudi H.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.97.

    12. Tangle Teezer may look like a regular brush, but it's actually a LIFE-CHANGING brush that can work through even the toughest knots, tears-free.,

    Hey look — it has over 1,000 positive reviews on Amazon!

    Promising review: "I thought I had to cut my hair. It was terribly matted (I went camping and forgot to bring any brushes and put it in a bun hoping that would help — it didn't). When I got home I saw that my Amazon order had arrived and decided to test it out. Wow! No breakage or pain at all and it only took 20 minutes! This knot was the worst that I have ever seen it was pretty close to a huge dreadlock, my regular brushes take two hours to fix something not nearly as bad as this! New favorite!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.14+ (available in four colors).

    13. Moroccanoil is a classic for a reason — the treatment instantly makes hair feel silkier and smoother.

    Promising review: "My fiancé now buries his nose into my hair and breathes in the smell of my Moroccanoil. He won't stop complimenting me on how amazing it smells! It makes my thick hair shiny and soft, and helps with fly aways! Absolutely recommend." —JessicaGuelker

    Get it from Sephora for $44.

    14. ArtNaturals argan oil hair mask uses jojoba oil, aloe vera, and keratin to repair dry and damaged hair.,

    It also claims to stimulate, soothe, and heal the scalp and hair follicles with green tea, sage, and ivy extracts — neat! Read more about this awesome hair mask.

    Promising review: "I don't know what this stuff is made out of, unicorn spit? Mermaid mucus? Whatever it is, it is magic. I had it and used it periodically and forgot about it. Then discovered it again and was reminded, again, how really awesome this unicorn spit is. It turned my dry, wiry hair into silken locks. My daughter has super curly hair. I have straight hair. I don't know what to do with it. I didn't know that curly hair needs unicorn spit. I put some in her super poofy, dry, curly, wispy hair, and viola! Magic! Her mane was tamed with a much softer feel and nicer curls. This is how I found it worked best: Wet hair, comb through the unicorn spit, tie it up or put in a cap, continue about your day (hopefully at home), let it sit for 30 minutes to one hour, and wash it out as normal. Instagram hair model time! Get this unicorn spit before unicorns go extinct." —Purple Lotus

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    15. Apple cider vinegar hair rinse cleanses your hair and scalp, leaving your locks as shiny as a red apple.

    This shampoo has argan oil, lavender extract, and aloe. It is supposed to condition, calm, and protect the hair against harsh elements like pollution and the sun.

    Promising review: "I have thick, fine hair with a frizzy texture (if I air dry I get beachy waves) that is color treated. I like using this product in place of shampoo and I also like to use this product as a 'second cleanse' if my hair is feeling really grimy. I color treat my hair and go several days between washes and this rinse helps to get rid of any extra build up but also conditions a little more beyond a clarifying shampoo. I really like how soft my hair is after I use this and I find it does help with frizz but it's not going to make my hair magically straight, which I wasn't expecting it to do anyways. Great product that does what it says." —finchburg

    Get it from Sephora or Ulta for $35.

    16. InStyler Glossie Ceramic Styling Brush brushes your hair and straightens it at the SAME time. Oh, and it's really good at both!

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Read why one BuzzFeeder loves this straightening brush (#2).

    Promising review: "This brush really does the job and is a better alternative to flat irons (for me personally). It took me just 20 minutes to straighten my hair instead of one hour with a traditional straightener. I love the result!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99.

    17. Briogeo Superfoods Hair Pack features juice-inspired shampoo and conditioner that help enrich and hydrate tired locks. Consider this the hangover cure to your dry hair.

    The shampoo has matcha and apple in it to cleanse and nourish your hair. The conditioner has kale and apple to moisturize and bring back vibrancy.

    Promising review: "I only bought this because of the cute packaging, but it was actually amazing on my hair. I followed the instructions to massage vigorously and the shampoo produced a great amount of lather. The conditioner was lightweight but still nourishing and got all my tangles out. Blow drying was a breeze and my hair is super soft and shiny, and I can’t stop touching it." —Garthok

    Get them from Sephora for $48.

    18. Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls softens, styles, and holds curls. Big, soft, bouncy curls are in your future!,

    Promising review: "So I have super big curly hair but sometimes it looks frizzy and uneven. I used Pillow Soft Curls for the first time and it's soooooo soft and my curls are twice the size — bouncy, soft, shiny, and voluminous!! AND it smells great. I def recommend!!" —Ashley Santana

    Get it from Amazon for $22.49.

    19. Verb Ghost Oil gets its name thanks to its spooky ability to totally disappear into your hair. It's so lightweight, you'll forget it's there (until you realize how soft your hair is now).,

    Promising review: "Love this oil! It smells so good and makes my hair so soft! Love the price point on Verb products, too. :)" —Mbautista50

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    20. Klorane Nourishing Conditioner smells deliciously of mango and as an added bonus, moisturizes your dry locks.

    Promising review: "Truly a miracle worker. I used this product twice along with the shampoo. I recently let my natural hair grow along with my bleached bottom half. My hair feels so soft and the frizzy split ends have disappeared." —shopsarahmac

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    21. Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie helps define curls that are soft and touchable instead of crunchy or sticky.,

    This styling cream has silk protein and neem oil. It's recommended for twist-outs, braids, and wash-and-go styles. Oh, and it has over 1,000 positive reviews on Amazon!

    Promising review: "I live by this stuff makes my curls bouncy and soft, just full of life! I use this everyday and couldn't live without it!" —Roxanne

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39.

    22. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil will give you the polished salon look from the comfort of your own bathroom.

    This handy oil nourishes, softens, silkens, tames, de-frizzes, and detangles. It also protects from heat and UV rays!

    Promising review: "This product is wonderful. Combine it with Moroccanoil treatment on dry hair before straightening and your hair will be soft and silky. My hair is very curly and has been starting to look a little damaged because of heat tool use, but this combination makes my hair look and feel great." —ShineBright26

    Get it from Amazon for $40.

    23. Silk18 Natural Conditioner has jojoba, keratin, shea butter, green tea, and other ingredients that help moisturize and nourish your dry hair.,

    I use this conditioner and love it! I expected it to smell like maple syrup, but I think it actually smells like sugar cookies.

    Promising review: "This product, honestly and truly, is a miracle product. I know, I know — you've heard it before. You've tried argan oil, conditioning treatments, overnight creams, curl cream, mousse, keratin, coconut oil, and pretty much every brand of shampoo/conditioner on the shelf. LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THIS PRODUCT. Silk18 makes my hair look less brassy, and evened out the shape of the curls and made them much bouncier. I think it's important to say that the top of my hair is EXTREMELY damaged from bleaching/straightening. The curls underneath formed thick, perfect ringlets and looked even better than my top layer. So even though I know it still looks very poofy to some, just know that this is seriously such a huge improvement for me." —Jenny

    Get it from Amazon for $9.69.

    24. Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction treats damaged hair, controls frizz, and leaves hair looking soft and polished.

    Promising review: "I love this hair cream. I didn't expect to do much to my hair. I have color treated hair that tends to be dry and frizzy. I put this product on when my hair is wet. After hair drying, my hair is very soft and shiny. Now I'm curious to try other products from this same company." —ShadowGirl12

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    25. Briogeo Rosarco Oil nourishes dry and brittle hair, and makes it vibrant and healthy once again.,

    Promising review: "I am in LOVE with this hair oil! At first I was hesitant because when I put the first pump into my hand, it isn't greasy or slimy feeling at all, I guess because there is no silicone or anything in it like most other hair oils I have used. I have long, thick curly hair so I used about three or four pumps and ran it through my hair at the nape of my neck to the ends, and my hair is SO soft! It also legitimately smells absolutely amazing. I will be using this forever!" —rlm1990

    Get it from Amazon for $25.19.

    26. Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil smoothes, adds moisture, and soothes so you can have wonderfully flowing and soft hair that rivals the Little Mermaid's.

    Life by the ocean can lead to frizzy hair, so it's a good thing this oil is made to combat frizz and keep your hair soft and smooth.

    Promising review: "Smells great, calms, and smoothes my hair without making it too heavy or gunky. A few drops deal with fly-aways and a nickel size dollop for days when I want to blow it out soft and sleek. It smells great — earthy and fresh, not like the sea as I was expecting from the title. Package is adorable." —snowzoe1

    Get it from Sephora for $34.

    27. And a bottle of biotin shampoo that will not only make your hair silky soft, but might also give you a little more of it to enjoy.,

    Promising review: "This is a very nice product, I started using this shampoo a short time ago and the results have been fantastic, my hair feels very soft and shiny and it has helped me with the hair loss. I totally recommend it. I also started using a biotin vitamins." —Alfonso Medrano

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.
