    Good hair days, faster snow shoveling, and air fried treats are coming our way.

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

    Hey there! Did you know that eBay has a Certified Refurbished section? That means you can score brands like Dyson, Bose, KitchenAid, and more for discounted prices *without* worrying about quality because they've been professionally inspected, cleaned, and refurbished by the manufacturer or a manufacturer-approved vendor to meet strict specifications. Meaning: they're still like-new. 

    1. A Dyson hair straightener that uses flexing plate technology to shape and gather hair. This method calls for less heat damage, flyaways, and unwanted frizz. Plus, you can charge it for 30 minutes of cordless straightening.

    Promising review: “Just let my hair dry naturally and it was a frizzy, curly mess…straightening it was a breeze with the Dyson!” —blackwatch7

    2. An air fryer to bake, fry, grill and roast your favorite foods with the click of a button. Its rapid air technology creates a juicy, delicious flavor without the tons of oil required by traditional fryers.
