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

    Promising review: "I tend to use bleach on 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

    6. Arvazallia Hydrating Argan Oil Mask with premium argan oil to help strengthen, detangle, and revive dull hair while improving elasticity with a beautiful shine.


    Promising review: "Simply put, this is the best conditioner I have ever used. My hair was getting really dry for the first time in my life, and I think I made it worse by obsessing over it. I tried a bunch of different shampoos and conditioners, and I eventually found this product. I left it on my hair for 45 minutes (the instructions say 5–7 minutes, but I waited longer). When I washed this conditioner out, my hair was so silky smooth and it felt wonderful." —Ladyx

    7. Surface Hair Health Bassu Hydrating Oil Shine — it can be applied to wet or dry hair for maximum restoration of hair follicles.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.84.

    8. Scotch Porter Beard Conditioner for revitalizing dry and unruly beard hair with Vitamin B-5 to help fortify and make your beard shine.

    Promising review: "After spending hundreds of dollars on other products, finally there's something that makes my dry, brittle, and curly beard softer and more manageable. Not to mention, the scent is great and the wife loves it. For what you get, the price ain't that bad either. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    9. It's a 10 Miracle Hair Mask Hair And Scalp Treatment to use as a daily conditioner that'll help improve your hair's vibrancy while nourishing and restoring elasticity.


    Promising review: "Amazing! I have a skin condition that makes my hair VERY brittle and VERY dry. My hair has even been compared to wire! This product just flat out works! I have soft hair for the first time in my life I have people asking me what I did to my hair and if I could recommend the stylist! No stylist, just this great product! I've received many compliments! This is awesome!" —Fizzy pop

    Get it from Amazon for $39.01.

    10. Elizavecca Collagen Coating Protein Treatment is a rich repairing treatment mask that can boost collagen in heat- or sun-damaged dry hair for a healthy, glossy finish.

    Promising review: "Just do it. Click the button and put it in your cart. This absolutely revolutionized my hair. From dull and dry to SHINY, I wouldn't have ever thought it was possible. This severely reduces the appearance of my split ends (I know they're still there hiding). This is a staple for life." — Sydney

    Get it from Amazon for $8.34.

    11. Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance™ Shampoo that'll help reduce breakage of hair types and re-link broken bonds while eliminating flyaways.


    This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates!

    Promising review: "My hair is baby fine, color-treated, oily at the roots, and dry on the ends. It’s been a struggle to find a shampoo that cleanses my hair effectively without stripping the ends. I can honestly say that I’ve found the holy grail of shampoos! It’s sulfate-free but still gives a luxurious lather and is super concentrated so I only need a dime size amount to cut through all the oil on my roots and scalp. Since using the Olaplex system, my hair is so much healthier, fuller and full of LIFE! I recommend this to everyone!" —pickles4herc

    Get it from Sephora for $28.

    12. V76 by Vaughn Hydrating Men's Shampoo to help quench thirsty, thick, and overworked hair without leaving a greasy residue.

    Instagram: @v76

    Promising review: "Outstanding product...for me at least. Everyone has their own preference. But I have very dry and curly hair and live in a dry climate. This really adds moisture or a sense of control to the hair and it just looks and feels clean. You don't need to use much. Well worth it for me." —GM

    Get it from Amazon for $19.

    13. DEVACURL Leave-In Decadence™ Ultra Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner that'll moisturize natural curly hair without weighing down your curls.

    Promising review: "My hair is very curly and long. Lately it has been feeling drier than usual, but finding products that define curls without feeling too greasy or weighing my hair down has been a challenge. I have only had this for a couple of weeks, but so far, this product has met that challenge and then some! My hair feels super soft and my curls are very well defined and bouncy. I have received multiple compliments on my hair too. This stuff is amazing!" —Sandyg

    Get it from Ulta for $26.

    14. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum with a lightweight formula to smooth and condition the finest to thickest hair with added shine. This serum can be applied on dry or wet hair!


    Promising review: "Since I've been dyeing my hair, my hair has become over-processed! My friend turned me on to this product and now I no longer have dry frizzy hair. Plus it doesn't leave my hair oily." —rebelgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $29.

    15. DryBar Velvet Hammer Hydrating Control Cream with Pracaxi oil, soy proteins, and cetyl esters — it'll prevent frizz, retain moisture, and provide a cushiony touch.


    This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates!

    Promising review: "After Morrocon oil didn't hydrate my frizzy hair I gave this a shot. It hydrates my hair like no other product before did and leaves me with either beautiful natural curls or when I style it with soft and shiny hair which doesn't frizz. My holy grail." —Gkrai

    Get it from Sephora for $29.

    16. Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask is made of olive, meadowfoam, and sweet almond extracts for deeply penetrating the center of each hair strand for overall rehabilitation of dehydrated hair.


    Promising review: "My hair is long and was looking dried out, with the ends starting to look ratty. My scalp was also itchy from the dry winter weather. I rubbed this into my scalp, then applied it to the rest of my hair, paying careful attention to the ends. I combed it through, then put a shower cap on, and let it soak in for about 15 minutes. My scalp feels so much better and isn't itchy anymore. My hair now looks shiny and healthy and the ends look so much better. My hair is not weighed down or looking flat, limp, or oily. This conditioner works just as well as the expensive salon deep conditioning treatments, at a fraction of the price." —Ravenhair

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    17. Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Food that'll cleanse your scalp to promote healthy hair growth while helping mend breakage of dry and brittle hair.


    Promising review: "Only have been using it a few days but I will say I already see a difference in the look and feel of my hair. With that being said even if it does not grow my hair I can still continue to use because it is one of the best moisturizers I've been able to find for my hair. My hair is already way softer and easier to manage after only a few days of use. Would recommend this especially for dry hair." —Tionna

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50.

    18. SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Split End Balm is great for natural and curly hair to help seal and repair split ends for a frizz-free, smooth appearance.

    Promising review: "I'm loving this hair balm! Ever since I used it on the ends of my hair it has improved! I haven't trimmed my ends since March! My ends look very healthy and moisturizing! I always put some on the ends of my braids when I do my braid out and when I unravel them, my ends look very shiny! I put it on my ends every other day just for a refresh! I thought I wasn't going to like it at first because it does look like wax, but once I rubbed it onto my fingers, it's like butter! This is my second jar of it!" —Nicole

    Get it from Ulta for $9.99.

    19. Dove Advanced Hair Series Intense Restoration Mask is great for coarse hair that needs some reviving. It'll help give your natural curls definition while quenching dryness.


    Promising review: "Great product! I have very coarse, very dry, colored hair and this product makes my hair smooth and manageable." —Myorders

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    20. Cantu Coconut Curling Cream to moisturize and strengthen each curl strand without weighing down your hair.

    Promising review: "This product changed my life. Before I found out about Cantu, I had heat-damaged, dry, lifeless hair, AND I was spending $15–20 on ineffective products — hoping something would help me like my hair. Then I found this online and decided to give it a try. I’m so happy I did because it gave me so much confidence in my 3c/4a curls! Love this! Will buy it forever! I went from a stylist telling me my hair felt like straw to now my stylist telling me it feels super soft and moisturized!" —EJ

    Get it from Amazon for $5.84.

    21. Garnier Whole Blends Avocado Oil & Shea Butter Nourishing Mask — it'll become your go-to rinse out treatment that'll help bring your hair back to life with supple bounce and shine.


    This product is formulated without parabens or aluminum.

    Promising review: "What an amazing product for Asian hair like mine. I have long locks that I rarely cut or treat at the hair salon. My hair is dry and dull after some time of not trimming it and frequent washing. The mask helped restore the dry and dull looks. I'm impressed with the smell and the effect on my hair after application. Amazing results!" —Josephine Pucci

    Get it from Target for $5.49.

    22. Redken All Soft Heavy Cream to apply after shampooing on towel-dried hair to help repair even the driest, most damaged, and over-bleached hair.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this hair product! If you have extremely coarse, dry, and thick hair, I highly recommend this product. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $12.56.

    23. LuxeOrganix Deep Conditioning Hair Mask to nourish all hair types and dry scalps from the inside out.
