1. Kitsch Luxe Shower Cap to ~securely~ keep your styled tresses dry on the days when you've gotta shower, but wanna skip a wash.

I have one and it's lovely!Promising review: "Love, love, love this shower cap! The fit is amazing. I no longer have to worry about my baby hairs getting wet or adjusting my cap so that the back of my neck stays dry. The fact that it is super cute is a major plus. My husband even complimented me in it and I don’t think too many wives can say that about their shower caps!" —wolfcolaGet it from Amazon for $24+ (available in four color combos).

2. Olaplex Hair Perfector No 3 Repairing Treatment as a fix for all kinds of stress from coloring and heat styling.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I started buying this due to a recommendation from my hair colorist. I use it once a week, following the instructions on the bottle to leave it in mostly damp hair for 10 minutes, then shampoo/condition as normal. My hair has no business looking as good as it does after all the coloring and treatments I have put it through, and a big part of that is thanks to Olaplex!" —Marisa Hackett

Get it from Amazon for $28.

3. John Frieda Hot Air Brush that'll give your arms (and straightener) a break in the pursuit of a pro-level blowout.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I got tired of trying to do a professional blowout on myself using my hair dryer with a regular round bush. After searching for a hot air brush I came upon the John Frieda brand and was amazed by the reviews, so I decided to give it a try. I recommend letting your hair air dry first and foremost. If you're like me and it takes your roots forever to dry, then go ahead and use your regular hair dryer with the flat nozzle thingy to dry your scalp first and just let it air dry. I was extremely happy with how easy it is to use. I am always pleased with the results. At times I even do the Kate Middleton blowout!" —Jasmine

Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in 1- or 1.5-inch).

4. Invisibobble to hold your everyday 'dos without throwing a dent in your hair plans. (Just don't wear it to spin.)

6. Aquis Luxe Hair Towel that'll rapidly dry your hair to a damp state, which means you can spare yourself some time *and* heat damage!

Promising review: "I bought my first Aquis Microfiber Towels decades ago for a trip to the Galapagos. I actually still have my two original towels but have since added to the collection. They remain as good today as they were back then, and I don’t wrap my wet hair up in anything but! They go with me when I travel and knock on wood, I have never left one behind or had it mixed up and taken with the other hotel towels. My hair is less tangled and dries faster when I wrap it in my Aquis towel straight from the shower. The added bonus is that while it is wrapped, I can easily do makeup without stray hairs ending up in the mascara brush. Love my Aquis towels!" —Loves to TravelGet it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in eight colors).

amazon.com, amazon.com

I wash my hair twice a week, so I get a lot of buildup from styling products. This feels amaaaaazing.

Promising review: "OH MY GOODNESS!! I absolutely LOVE these shampoo brushes for detangling (I also use them for scratching my scalp if I have an itch while detangling). I have type 4 tightly coiled, kinky hair and these work PERFECTLY for detangling my hair type without ripping out my hair." —💜Kiki.L.G💜

Get it from Amazon for $0.70!

9. And a Michel Mercier Detangler — it can get your locks looking right from the start because you don't have Marsha Brady time.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Absolutely love these brushes! I have one in my bathroom, one in my purse, and one for my 2.5-year-old daughter. This brush gets out her tangles with no tears or whining! Others got stuck and brushing was a nightmare. Yes, it feels cheap. Yes, it makes a hollow, horrible sound while brushing. But it works! It doesn't break or pull your hair. I was skeptical because of the cheesy commercials, but I just love these things. My daughter and I both have long, fine hair that tangles easily." —H. Devaney

Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available for normal, fine, or thick hair).

11. Silk18 Conditioner to finally give you a super shiny look without weighing down your hair.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I've used so many different conditioners in my life from drugstore to high-end brands. I always see women with shiny hair and nothing has ever worked on my hair. I have very straight, thin hair. A lot of conditioners weigh it down. This conditioner didn't weigh my hair down and made it shiny and healthy looking! My hair usually feels so dry but I've found my go-to conditioner!!! So happy I found this!!! Would highly recommend!!" —Sara S.

Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

12. Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush — it might just make you break up with your straightener (and help you sleep in a few minutes).

Read a BuzzFeeder's review.

Promising review: "Buy it. Worth every penny. My daughter has incredibly thick, hay-like textured hair, whereas I have fine hair that also dries like hay. No matter what product we put in it and let air dry, still frizzy hay! This brush smooths the hair from root to tip in half the time it would take to straighten the whole head of hair. This is also the perfect tool for anyone who has an impatient teen who is hard to get up and get to school on time. Happy brushing!" —Foosa

Get it from Amazon, Birchbox, or Amika for $120.

13. Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo that'll help remove product buildup and start you off with a clean slate.

14. Fanola No Yellow Shampoo for toning down any unsightly yellow tones in gray, light blonde, or streaked hair.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "The best blonde toner out there. I have used Schwarzkopf toning mousse, Joico purple violet shampoo, Clairol shimmer lights, among others, and this is far and away the best of all. Not only does it remove any and all brass from my hair, it is also PH balanced and reduces porosity, unlike other color depositing toners out there. Great for damaged, frizzy hair. I have a lot of tones and contrast in my hair, so I do not leave it in very long. 20 seconds max, otherwise I'll end up with some violet streaks in my hair. If you leave this in for over a minute your hair will turn purple, if that's what you're going for." —Kkol

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

15. Beachwaver Curling Iron to do all the twirling for you to achieve "lazy girl" waves.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "You know that perfectly wavy reality TV star hair? I wanted it. Craved it. Tried everything to get it. But nothing worked. Nothing lasted. I thought that my long, thick hair was just going to be straight forever. Impervious to curls of any kind. Until I tried the Beachwaver. I fell in love, y'all. I watched in wonder as my head of lackluster locks transformed into flowing waves with just the push of a button. Literally — it's pretty much dummy-proof. Basically does all the work for you. #motorizedmagic And here's the really crazy part — these curls last. For a looooong time. I'm talking 3+ days. Even brushed out and slept on, my hair stays soft, smooth, and perfectly wavy. I'm starting to feel like this is just the natural state of my hair. Probably gonna get my own reality show soon just because of these glorious waves. I know it's pricey, but think of it as an investment in your awesomeness. You're worth it. You deserve it. And so does your soon-to-be primetime hair." —OhMargo

Get it from Amazon for $128.70.

16. Wet Brush as a cult-status buy that'll take the OUCH out of detangling.

These things are fuckin' legit, OK?!Promising review: "Oh praise all the spiritual beings because I have finally found a hairbrush that seems to work on my child's unruly hair without her screaming that I'm ripping her scalp off every time I go to brush her hair. I don't know what happens to this child while she sleeps, but every morning it's as if she's been headbanging in the middle of a tornado and I have to brush through that mess. Even with detangler it was a challenge before, but now it goes much more smoothly. Could not be more pleased with it. I use this on my own hair too and if there are any knots, I don't even feel when they are brushed out. Seriously, love it." —Lissa K.Get two from Amazon for $13.06.

19. ArtNaturals Argan Oil Hair Mask — it can deliver a serious dose of moisture, which is perfect for people who do a lot of heat styling (like me!).

amazon.com, amazon.com

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), and let it sit for 30 mins to 1 hr., 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.
