    Promising review: "I bought this based on a review in a BuzzFeed article. I have long, thick, curly hair and use this maybe once a week. I get a ton of compliments every time and I absolutely love the way my hair feels afterwards. So amazingly soft. I use it in the shower and usually wash my hair and then towel dry it. I put a small amount in my hair, mostly on the roots. Let it sit while I shave my legs and then rinse it out and comb through with a wide tooth comb. I allow my hair to air dry and bam, amazing hair. This will forever be part of my hair routine now." —m. damocles

    Get it from Amazon for $9.73.

    Promising review: "I have 3c hair and struggle with a lot a breakage, unmanageability, and moisture. When my mom mentioned this product to me I didn’t take her seriously because of the simple fact that we have completely different hair textures. I have always used ethnic hair products and stayed away from brands such as this one because of the alcohol. I have never in my 22 years felt my hair like this! I feel like I have a completely different head of hair. This product is so amazing and I will FOREVER be using this product in my hair regimen." —Theressa Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87.

    3. OGX's Locking + Coconut Curls Air Dry Cream is an A+ scrunch-and-go option if you're looking to create a low-lift routine. Click through just some of the 8,500+ 5-star reviews and you'll also find that users were able to cut out super-expensive products in favor of this $8 miracle worker!

    Promising review: "I found this product mentioned in an article about air-drying waves and curls. I am always looking for a great 'stay-at-home' styling product and with the excellent price point, I thought I would give it a shot. WOW! This styling cream is fantastic! My waves were soft and springy and my hair was super shiny. I am SO in love with it, that it may well replace some VERY expensive products from the salon. As an aside, it doesn’t add any volume, of course, but if you need volume, I found that it plays well with a texturizing spray." —Nilene Thompson-Finn

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    4. Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Curl Defining Creme styles thick curls and coils without any crunch so you don't walk out of your bathroom looking like an NSYNC-era Justin Timberlake.

    Eden BodyWorks is a Black woman-owned business established in 2004 that specializes in natural products to nurture, restore, and maintain hair. Reviewers with 2c–4c hair mention it working well for them!

    Promising review: "This curl defining creme is really good, and I consider it a must have. I have 4a, high density, low porosity, coarse hair. This gives my hair great definition and moisture. I think it works best as a part of the LCO method. Personally, I dampen my hair with water, apply this crème, and then follow up with a little bit of apricot or sweet almond oil. It doesn't mix well with products from other brands or other products in general other than oil, but that's not a bad thing considering you don't need anything else. Would definitely recommend this over curl-defining crèmes from other brands." —Crh

    Get it from Amazon or Eden Bodyworks for $11.99. 

    5. Kenra's Platinum Blow-Dry Spray allows you to cut your drying time in HALF and acts as a thermal protectant and frizz tamer all the while. It's now racked up over 16,800 5-star reviews as well as a following on TikTok, sooo safe to say it's universally loved.

    Promising review: "This blow-dry spray is life changing! Seriously. I cut my time in half when I use this product. I have a mixture of 4a + 4b hair textures." —Lisa Lang Blakeney 

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sizes and packs of one or two).

    Promising reviews: "I have a dry type 3a/3b hair and the past three weeks I've been using this with my heated hair spa. My hair feels more hydrated than ever. Tbh I leave the product in for about 20 minutes and use it a minimum of once per week." —Hojiwan

    "I have 4c hair, thick strands with medium density and a generally dry scalp. Before anything else I have to say that the amount of slip this treatment provides is incredible. Tangles quite literally melt away. That alone puts this mask on top shelf but ALSO the moisture, shine, and bounce of my hair after using this mask is something serious. I don't normally define my coils, but I do notice a consistently juicy bouncy look to my hair and the integrity and 'recoil' of the hair strands is pronounced. It helps make my hair pliable and resilient and hold moisture for so many days after washing. This product is in a league of its own!" —NaanaEsi

    Get it from Amazon or Sephora for $15+ (available in two sizes). 

    7. Moroccanoil's Mending Infusion Styling Hair Serum nourishes (and noticeably seals) split ends in a pinch so if you've still got a few weeks left before your next haircut, no one will be the wiser.

    Promising reviews: "Now the only real cure for split ends is to cut them off. But if you routinely use chemicals on your hair, this will be your friend. While it doesn’t replace a haircut, it aids in preventing breakage!" —myvenusintaurus

    "This product has helped my hair look healthier. The first visible improvement was how much it helped tamed my frizz and smooth it out. It also slowly helped with minimizing the appearance of my damaged ends. Def worth a try!" —BellaLilliana

    Get it from Amazon or Sephora for $30.

    8. Ceremonia's Guava Hydrating Leave-In Conditioner addresses, dryness, breakage, and general damage with a reparative guava formula that delivers shiny, smooth, and — most importantly — HEALTHY hair.

    Promising reviews: "I was a little skeptical about whether this product would work well in my thick, 4b/c hair. However, it did not disappoint. It is not too thick but is substantial enough to instantly soften and moisturize my hair. Great product!" —Misse415

    "This is a wonderful hydrating leave-in conditioner. I have thin/fine hair and was worried about this being too heavy for my hair but no, it's great! I use it as the third step after my shower. Absolutely lovely. I will always repurchase this" —BluePine

    Get it from Sephora for $24

Heck, it can even replace your straightener!

    Promising review: "I am amazed at the results of my hair after using my RevAir. I have always had the worst shrinkage and couldn't find a way to stretch out my hair when I did a twist. This is revolutionary; not only did it stretch my hair but my twist-out was popping!" —Marquet S.

    Promising review: "The BEST diffuser on the market! I have naturally wavy hair and have struggled with finding the right diffuser to keep my tresses curly while drying my hair.

    Psst! You can use this on DRY hair *and* would you just look at that price!

    Promising review: "I'm very impressed with this product! I have badly damaged hair like a bird's nest due to frequent hair coloring, Japanese perm, and hot tools for styling. I was reluctant to buy this since it was so cheap and I normally use expensive salon brands. But I decided to purchase this product based on its high reviews and I am so glad I did! It got rid of my tangles and made my hair very soft and smooth. Just because it's cheap doesn't mean it won't work as well. In this case it worked spectacularly!" —honeydew

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49+ (also available in packs of one, two, or three).
