    1. An Arctic Fox semi-permanent hair color for a treatment that works even on dark hair (!!!) and puts expensive dye jobs to SHAME. The shades are super saturated and the formula conditions *while* it treats your locks, so your hair is left super soft. Meaning you'll soon have a colorful, shiny mane.

    2. An HSI ceramic hair straightener reviewers with thick hair say only needs *half* the time of other styling tools to transform curly tresses into sleek and smooth strands. And! It tames frizz and evenly distributes heat to prevent damage.

    3. A John Frieda hot brush that'll style dry *and* wet hair and give you pro-like blowouts every darn morning without the usual time or financial commitment. Not to mention, its ~ionic technology~ leaves your mane frizz-free and impressively shiny.

    4. An eco-friendly conditioner bar so you can both reduce plastic waste and pesky frizz and dryness after just one good lather. It combines cocoa butter, coconut oil, vitamin B5, and lime oil to deeply hydrate your hair and leave it softer and smoother. So long, brittle strands. Hello, luscious locks.

    5. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo, because this'll brighten your blonde hair to fully platinum in just one to three minutes. Translation: you get to maintain platinum blonde tresses ALL THE TIME without a trip to the pricey salon.

    6. Or! A John Freida lightening spray to gradually brighten blonde hair without the need for drastic bleaching. It'll lighten your hair up to ~two shades~ thanks to a blend of citrus and chamomile — and leave your mane damage-free.

    7. A well-loved castor oil for promoting natural hair growth to inexpensively encourage a fuller mane. It's rich in vitamins and fatty acids to balance your scalp's pH levels (goodbye, itchiness), which in turn will lead to soft, healthy tresses.

    8. A Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo that'll go straight to the source of any hair damage — your scalp. It hits the reset button for dull, damaged hair — just a weekly rinse with this will remove dulling residues (hello, styling products) and revive your mane to a gorgeous ✨shiny✨ state.

    9. A three-barrel curling iron wand so achieving effortless-looking waves doesn't feel impossible (or something you have to pay for). Its clever design makes curling hair faster and beginner-friendly, meaning your wallet can keep a safe distance from the salon.

    10. An Elizavecca hair treatment, because this'll let you pack on collagen-infused ingredients to help undo heat and bleaching damage, and bring back the shine you DESERVE. Five minutes of wearing this mask, and your mane will be ready for its shampoo commercial debut. Commence slow-mo hair toss.

    11. A scalp-care brush to scrub away dandruff, dullness, and stressed-out strands by gently deep-cleaning, exfoliating, and stimulating blood flow to your scalp in order to make sure every strand of hair gets the ultimate level of restoring treatment.

    12. A hair-finishing *stick* for wishing pesky flyaways adieu in the name of impressively sleek updos — all thanks to this incredibly easy-to-use design and non-greasy, natural plant–based formula.

    13. A John Frieda color-enhancing glaze that'll deepen your tresses to salon-worthy, brunette locks *without* an expensive trip to the salon. You can do it at home, spend less than even your usual tip, AND it adds a touch of shine to your hair. Will anyone know this all happened in your bathroom? Not a chance.

    14. A hydrating co-wash so you can soothe dry and itchy scalps while simultaneously defining your curls. Its combo of olive oil and tea tree oil relieves flaking and irritation *and* deeply moisturizes dry ringlets.

    15. A set of clip-on faux bangs, because this'll help you ~cut out~ experimenting at the hairdresser. You can style them any way you'd like (fringe, thick, etc.) and best of all, you can take them off as soon as you feel like showing your forehead again.

    16. A color-depositing shampoo to make faded dye jobs look vivid and freshly done *or* easily try out an exciting new shade on already-bleached hair! Either way, you'll be able to extend your 'do's lifetime and avoid costly touch-ups.

    17. An extra-large hair diffuser for enhancing your natural curls' texture and definition with ~360 degree~ airflow to dry hair evenly, maximize volume, and cancel pesky frizz. It even features extra-long tips with drying vents to speedily dry thick, long hair from root to tip. Welcome to a new world of sleek blowouts.

    18. A bottle of Remilia keratin hair treatment that'll only need only a *drop* of its powerful blend of vitamin B5, silk proteins, and keratin to treat oily roots, hydrate parched locks, and strengthen damaged manes. You can use them as both a heat protectant and a quick-repair serum!

    19. A set of synthetic hair extensions so you can grow your mane out without having to go the lengths. In fact, they'll bring you results in just a few clips instead of having to play the waiting game. Plus, you can go back to short the minute you want to change it back up!

    20. An anti-dandruff shampoo, because this'll help you ~flake~ on dry and itchy scalps. Just use it twice a week between washes to discover sweet, sweet relief.

    21. A set of twist flex rods to style your hair into gorgeous ringlets while you catch up on your beauty sleep (and give your locks a needed break from heat tools, which can cause frizz). Consider these to be your overnight hairstylist that you absolutely do not need to tip.

    22. A fan-favorite HerStyler hair repair serum for taking matters into your own hands when it comes to treating fried, damaged tresses. Infused with vitamin E, aloe vera, and argan oil, this bb works overtime to restore shine, flatten frizz, and overall bring that tired mane back to LIFE. And all it takes a few swipes of your fingers.

    23. A L'Oréal protein recharge treatment that'll bring dull, over-processed manes back to life (all from the shower!). Its blend of almond extracts and protein elixirs strengthens your hair, promotes major shine, and protects it from further heat damage — it can even withstand bleaching!

    24. A detangling brush designed with 3a to 4c hair in mind so defining your curls is never a ~painful~ process again. It works on both wet and dry hair, and detangles super thick hair without ripping or tearing.

    25. A Remington Pro curling wand, because this'll create beach-y waves, even on stick-straight hair. It's simpler to control than traditional curlers so beginners can quickly master beach waves in a matter of minutes. Plus its ceramic plating helps to prevent heat damage *and* create a super smooth finish! No frizz allowed.

    26. A Dyson hair dryer to join the happy reviewers who say it's well worth the splurge. Basically all the perks of high-end blowouts will be right in your *fingertips* — not only is it engineered to protect your hair from damage, but to promote extra shine and a frizz-free look (even if you're going from tight curls to loose waves).

    27. A natural-looking ponytail extension for seemingly lengthening your updo overnight. They're secure, comfortable enough for all-day wear, and will probably be the one thing inspiring enough to make us go out. If Ariana Grande can do this, by golly so can we.

    28. A teasing brush that'll deliver major volume without a single heated styling tool. Its combo of boar bristles and nylon bristles help to improve styling control, plus its tapered handle has a pick end for easy parting and separating. The final look: impressively full and bouncy.
