    1. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum can smooth and control that annoying frizz.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this stuff! I always have really frizzy hair and it is super thick so it always takes forever to dry, but with the super skinny serum, it takes less than half the time to dry and tames frizz instantly. A little goes a long way, so even with my long, thick hair this bottle easily lasts me six months!" —elycia clemans

    Price: $21

    2. Redken All Soft Heavy Cream is a super treatment perfect for dry and brittle thick hair.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this hair product! If you have extremely coarse, dry, thick hair, I highly recommend this product. Used in conjunction with the Redken All Soft Shampoo, this product is amazing. It rinses out well without leaving any greasy residue behind on your hair. Your hair will feel softer and smoother with the first use! I have neck to shoulder length hair and only have to use a drop about the size of a quarter, maybe a tad more. Massage it in, let it sit in your hair without rinsing for 1–2 minutes, and then rinse." —Janise Johnson

    Price: $13.60

    3. Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray will cut down the drying time of thick hair — because we know it can take a while!

    Promising review: "I have naturally curly hair that is very thick and whenever I want to blow-dry it or straighten it this product has become a staple in my routine. It smells heavenly and cuts the drying time and makes my hair so smooth and shiny. You also don't need a whole lot, so the big bottle has lasted me months and I use it once a week!" —Jeni

    Price: $8.22+ (available in six sizes)

    4. Mielle Organics Babassu Oil And Mint Deep Conditioner with protein strengthens, softens, and enriches your thick natural hair.

    Promising review: "My hair is 4c natural and shoulder length. I had been using SheaMoisture for about two years and guess my hair needed a change in products. This deep conditioner is wonderful! My hair comes out flexible, strong, and shiny. Plus I love the smell! I part my hair in sections for washing and conditioning. After applying this I like to use a shower comb to work the product through and easily detangle in the shower (I maybe use about 6–8 tablespoons worth of product each use). Then I use a plastic cap and one of those heated conditioning caps for 20 minutes before rinsing out." —OSC

    Price: $12.81

    5. Ineffable Care Boar Bristle Hairbrush — it's curved with nylon bristles that'll help detangle thicker hair and massage the scalp.

    Promising review: "I have long, super thick, and curly red hair. It comes down to the middle of my lower back. I can honestly say that I have never had a brush that was this gentle on my hair, but yet very effective at removing the tangles and knots. Even when my hair is soaking wet from the shower, it glides right through my hair. I have broken paddle brushes in the past because of the weight of my hair and resistance. These brushes have just the slightest give, so they meet that 'resistance' head on. I'm seriously considering buying another set, just so I can have multiples. Bottom line, would I recommend these brushes? YES!!" —Kindle Customer

    Price: $17.97

    6. Herbal Essences Biorenew Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner blends antioxidants, aloe, and sea kelp to help rejuvenate damaged hair.

    This product is free of parabens, gluten, and colorants.

    Promising review: "I tend to use bleach in my hair and it damages it, to be expected. But this product actually made the bleached hair feel like real hair again. The hair feels rejuvenated and well moisturized. I’ve been using this product for about a month or so now and have noticed a major difference in the texture of my hair and the new hair is feeling even softer than I imagined. It really does make a difference and I think this will be the only shampoo and conditioner that I will use from now on." —Josue Canales

    Price: $11.04+ (available in seven styles)

    7. Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Style Milk – a leave-in moisturizer that'll make your curls shiny, bouncy, and frizz-free. / Via

    Promising review: "I can't begin to tell about how great this product is!!! I have super curly, thick hair and this stuff holds my curls without being hard and crunchy. A little goes a long way. I use about a quarter right after I shower. This stuff holds and does leave a residue or a crunchy feeling. Plus, it has a light floral scent. I would recommend to anyone with thick curly hair." —Petra Warnick

    Price: $5.59 (available in three sizes)

    8. Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream can help eliminate frizz and leaves hair with a refreshing shine.

    9. TIGI Bed Head After Party Smoothing Cream makes your hair smooth and silky before you style it.

    Promising review: "This is top shelf stuff!! I love Tigi products for my dry, curly, thick hair. This really tames the poof and makes it silky and easier to control and shape. Curls rock is great as well!." —Keith Urban Fantastic

    12. BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Flatiron straightens thick hair in minutes and provides a long-lasting, luxurious shine. / Via

    Promising review: "I have really thick Asian hair and it's always a struggle trying to find the most durable and reliable tools for styling. I have used CHI straighteners for the last 10 years and was nervous about switching brands. But I'm really impressed by this straighter! Not only do I have extremely thick hair but I have a lot of it and I can straighten my hair in 10 minutes with this straightener! It leaves my hair feeling really silky too. I also love how thin it is. I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to use it to curl my hair, but it does an amazing job of creating waves too. I've been using this for a month now and I totally recommend!!" —June C

    Price: $119.99+ (available in three sizes)

    Promising review: "Highly moisturizing, yet very effective at cleansing the hair and scalp! I literally can't put into words how much this shampoo has helped to re-hydrate my hair! I hope Sojourn never changes the formula. If you're looking for an ultra-hydrating shampoo, don't hesitate — just try it! I use this weekly and it's never given me build-up. It just cleans and moisturizing the strands" —doubleM

    Price: $8.99+ (available in three sizes)

    14. Smooth Viking Men's Hair Clay holds your hair in place with an all-day matte finish. / Via

    Promising review: "Some of the best hair product I have ever used. I have thick curly/wavy hair and I hate using pomade or anything shiny in my hair. It just doesn't fit my style. This clay helps shape my hair and keep it in place. That whole 'bedhead look but you know it's on purpose' look. I will continue to get this overtime I need some clay. It smells great too!" —adam bullet

    Price: $13.97

    15. Maui Moisture Curl Quench is made with papaya butter and plumeria extract to detangle and tame thick unruly hair.

    This product is sulfate-free!

    Promising review: "This is the best conditioner I've found. It works well and smells great. My hair had been horribly tangly and dry even with tons of hair masks and I eventually realized it was because the products I was using had silicones. Maui Moisture has been a godsend on my silicone-free recovery and now my hair behaves a lot better now." —Meg

    Price: $6.62 (available in six types)

    Instagram: @cantubeauty

It didn't change the texture or anything but my hair feels silky and manageable even when I put braids in or keep it wrapped up. I love this conditioner. Plus it smells good too!" —Violet

    Price: $5.97

    18. Betty Dain Shower Cap keeps thick hair covered and dry while taking a shower. / Via

    Promising review: "I love this shower cap so much I ordered a second one in case I can't get one in the future. I have thick hair and this keeps it completely dry whenever I use it, unlike so many others that are loose and leak. Plus it's cute — well, as cute as dorky shower caps can be." —J. Hughes

    Price: $6.95+ (available in four patterns)

    Instagram: @v76

    This product is vegan, cruelty and gluten free. It's also formulated without parabens, minerals, petroleum or sulfates.

    Promising review: "I made a gift basket of V76 items for my dad and gave him the brightening shampoo and conditioner. The brightening shampoo and conditioner literally got rid of all his brassy tones (which were getting really yellow) and his silver hair is now an AWESOME silver! And only after using a few times a week for a couple weeks. Moisturizer and super soft too. He’s hard to impress but even he couldn’t believe how much better his silver was looking. I may try it on my blonde soon!" —Amber

    Price: $19

    Instagram: @auntjackiescurlsandcoils

    Promising review: "This is the only thing that really works for my crazy curly hair. I use this at the second plopping. The first plopping is straight in the shower after washing the conditioner out. I use Shea Moisture Souffle then I plop in the microfiber. After the microfiber soaks up the excess water I then use this product, Aunt Jackie's Don't Shrink gel, then plop with a T-shirt. After more water is absorbed I take it out and let it air dry or use a diffuser. GREAT RESULTS." —firecracker

    Price: $19.10+ (available in four sizes)

    Price: $8.99

    23. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum is formulated with Moroccan argan oil for up to three days of smooth hair.

    Promising review: "The bottle is smaller than I expected but that’s sort of my fault, haha but it definitely eliminates my frizz. I am white but I have very thick hair that is in between being wavy and flat so it’s just poofy. I put one pump in my hands and evenly distribute it from roots to tips with my head upside down so that I don’t get too much on top of my head (so it doesn’t get greasy). It smells great, if you don’t know what the texture of the product is, it’s basically an oil." —faith

    Price: $4.74+ (available in three sizes)

    24. Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask — it's made with sweet almond oil to hydrate your hair and make it easier to manage.

    Promising review: "This is the best product for reducing frizz and combing out easily. I have very thick hair and it makes my hair soft, shiny, and easy to manage. My hairdresser noticed and asked how my hair is so healthy with being colored." —Barb49

    Price: $13.02 (available in two sizes)

    25. Cotton stretchy hair ties go on easy and won't tangle up your hair — no matter how thick it is!

    Promising review: "I have thick but quite straight hair. These ties are the best! They don't tangle in my hair, I can wear them around my wrist when not using them, and they aren't too tight so are very comfortable, and easily go on and off. I have had many a hair tie in my life, but have to say these work better than anything else I've used. Most of the colors are very nice too." —splashy

    Price: $6.99+ (available in three sizes)

    26. Biosilk Therapeutic Treatment calms frizzy hair with a sleek and shiny finish.

    Promising review: "This is the best product I have ever used. I have coarse, thick, wavy hair and have tried hundreds if not thousands of products. I always come back to this one. It leaves my hair soft, takes care of the frizz, and smells great. It just calms my hair (which is hair to understand unless you have thick hair). Absolute hair saver!" —jenny hayter

    Price: $15.35+ (available in three sizes)

    27. Remington Hair Dryer dries thicker hair faster with technology that'll prevent heat damage.

    Promising review: "I'm not exaggerating when I say that this product is a life changer. I have very thick hair and it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes to dry my hair. Usually, I would just give up before my hair was actually dry. I borrowed this dryer from my sister while on a trip and it fully dried my hair in less than 15 minutes! I immediately ordered my own." —VJohnson

    28. And Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Complex Color Care Shampoo gently cleans thick color-treated hair while hydrating your scalp.

    Promising review: "I really love how this shampoo is for my thick hair, but also for my sensitive scalp and skin. I didn't necessarily buy it for its use for color-treated hair, but I mainly bought it because it seemed like it was a good formula for those of us with sensitive skin, plus it had a nice, gentle and natural rose scent. Wow! This has been one of the best shampoos (and conditioners) I've found in a long time! A lot of other 'sensitive skin formula' shampoos actually burned my scalp, but this one gives me no scalp issues at all." —Me

    Price: $9.95+ (available in five scents)
