    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    One of my coworkers purchased this four-pack and was kind enough to share with the rest of us! I love how easy this headband makes it to make a fashion statement without taking up too much time in the morning β€” and I was able to wear it all day without getting a headache!

    Promising review: "I live in headbands as a stay-at-home mom with two small kiddos. They make your messy bun actually look like you're decent-looking and like you got yourself together πŸ˜‚ definitely a great pack for cheap. They are made very well, great quality!" β€”Misty Flota

    2. Revlon's One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush that'll remove any unnecessary stress from your morning routine.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    So many of my friends have bought this brush and it was all my mom requested for Mother's Day last year. It's becoming a must-have for anyone who loves a blowout but doesn't have the patience to go get one or lacks the skills to get it done nicely themselves β€” seriously it has over 149K 5-star reviews on Amazon! I, OBVIOUSLY, had to get one for myself and have been using it on days I want to quickly dry my hair. It really is fantastic.

    Promising review: "For background: I do not have hairstyling experience, neither have I blown dried my hair, and my hair looks like I went to the hair salon. Like many people I read the comments before buying, however after trying it, the comments honestly don’t give this product enough justice. I have curly hair and I’ve seen professional mess up when blow-drying my hair, but with this product I was shocked! I wish I took a before picture but I added one with my curly hair for comparison." β€”Elizabet

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99+ (available in four colors).

    3. Arvazallia 's hydrating argan oil hair mask to refresh your dry or damaged hair and give yourself an excuse to spend your Friday night at home.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My hair is very thin and curly. The ends are damaged from heat and color, causing my hair to look even more unruly. I do oil treatments once a week and only wash my hair two to three times a week but NOTHING has made my hair feel like this product does. There is an immediate difference as soon as this product touches my hair. It leaves my hair feeling so silky, even after I rinse it out and dry my hair." β€”Maegan W.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 or Subscribe & Save for $12.30.

    4. Rifle Paper Co.'s bow scrunchie, a must-have for anyone who wants to add some florals into the mix this spring without buying an entirely new wardrobe.

    Get it from Rifle Paper Co. for $12 (available in six styles).

    5. Ouai's wave spray from Jen Atkin you can quickly spritz all over your hair post-shower for an easy-to-achieve, frizz-free beachy look.

    Sephora

    I have naturally wavy (but frizzy) hair and after trying many products this is where I've happily landed. Ouai is the first brand I recommend to my fellow wavy-haired ladies. It's light, doesn't leave your locks feeling crunchy, doesn't have an overpowering smell, and keeps hair looking fresh. My only complaint is it doesn't come in a massive-sized bottle! Ouai also recently came out with a curl cream that I'm a huge fan of β€” it's lightweight and also does the trick (though the wave spray is still my favorite).

    Get it from Sephora for $26.

    6. Hair scarves that'll transform your messy bun or last-minute ponytail into a work of hair art.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these hair scarves. they are all so cute and the perfect size. They each come tied around a scrunchie, but the scrunchie is detachable from the scarf, so its almost like you get four hair scarves as well as four adorable scrunchies!! Just when I thought this purchase couldn't get any better, I noticed that it all also came with two cute hair ties!!! Thanks so much for these incredible products, I LOVE!!!" β€”leslie m loper

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. Fanola's purple toning shampoo you can count on to actually do its job and remove any unwanted brassiness from your light hair in only one to three minutes!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" β€”Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $10.24+ (available in three sizes).

    8. And John Frieda's Brilliant Brunette shampoo, because blondes shouldn't be only ones having all the fun! Sorry to Rod Stewart and his "Blondes Have More Fun" song, but brunettes' hair needs some color-loving, too.

    amazon.com

    I recently received samples of this shampoo and conditioner and, honestly, wasn't sure if it was only for people who had dyed their hair dark. In fact, it is not! It's for brunettes of all kinds β€” natural and all!

    Promising review: "I purchased this John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shampoo and my hair looks golden brown instead of brown with a lot of gray underneath. I didn't want the mess of coloring my own hair nor did I think I could do as good a job as my hairdresser, so I was so pleased that Frieda's Shampoo did the job. I definitely recommend this shampoo along with the Brilliant Brunette Conditioner." β€”Dan Cremeans

    10. Big Sexy Hair's volumizing texture powder to help you add a little ~umph~ to your locks when, despite all your best efforts, they're looking a bit flat.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've always had thick hair and a lot of volume, but since I moved to Miami my hair keeps going down, thanks to the weather and humidity. I decided to try this product, and really, this is amazing. The bottle is small, but you only need a little bit to add volume to your hair, I even put too much (and still it was so small that I thought it wouldn’t be enough) that I had to wash my hair to take it off because my hair was TOO thick and too voluminous !! I’m amazed." β€”Camille De Armas

    Get it from Amazon for $15.48 or Subscribe & Save for $14.71.

    11. Fibs and Fables' twisted hair clips, inspired by Gaia (the Mother Goddess of Greek mythology) who literally brought all of Earth's features to life. Name a better hair accessory for spring, I dare you.

    Fibs and Fables

    Fibs and Fables is a Black woman-owned small business based in Washington, DC.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product! I have dark hair and all other dry shampoos leave me looking like a grandma. This one actually controls my super-greasy hair. I usually have a lot of trouble with the bangs, but this one works perfectly." β€”Hannah

    Get it from Amazon for $15.45.

    13. Hairizone's universal diffuser attachment with 211 air holes you can count on to distribute heat evenly and dry your curls or waves in a less time than usual.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Suitable for hair dryers with nozzle diameters of 1.7–2.6 inches. Reviewers with 3c and 4c hair also love this product!

    Promising review: "I've been following the curly girl method for about a month and I'm finally getting a diffuser to help speed up the drying process without damaging my curl pattern. I have 2a/2b wavy hair and this diffuser worked wonderfully for me. I assumed the diffuser would add at least a little frizz, but I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the final look came out. This diffuser fit on the end of my Parlux dryer very easily and it seems very well made. I'm very happy with it." β€”Christina

    Get it from Amazon for $21.25 (available in seven colors).

    14. Attachable hair extensions for a fabulous natural hair updo you never thought you'd be able to pull off due to your hair being so short. The sky is the limit, my friends.

    Promising review: "I can't believe all the money I spent on natural hair extensions until I got these. OMG I'm so amazed by how natural they look. They are super voluminous and soft. I bought two since my hair is really short and I like to use a huge amount of hair, but even with one you can rock lots of hairstyles. Thank you so much for this product! In the picture I'm wearing only one and you can tell how good they are." β€”JE

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this little brush! I only just learned such a thing existed and had been using a teasing comb. This does much better with creating volume at the top of my head (I have very fine hair) without tearing my hear and frizzing it. With fine hair, it's especially important to have these gentle bristles. I highly recommend this brush for anybody wishing to create volume or height in their hair. And a very good price too!" β€”M. Montour

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in five colors).

    Model with with her hair half up and a clear spiral hair tie around her wrist
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m obssesed with these! I have thick curly hair so rubber bands and the ribbon elastics always dent my hair. Even when I straighten my hair, those type of hair ties also dent my hair. With these coils, my hair is secure whether it’s straight or curly. When I remove it, my hair is easily fixed back into place. These do stretch out after you use it for a while, but it is easily fixed. If you blow dry them, the heat will cause it to shrink back to its original size and it is as good as new!" β€”Stephanie S.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $5.99.

    19. Curls' Blueberry Control Jelly for 2a–4c hair β€” it has a gentle formula that'll have your curls poppin' up like tulips on the first warm day of the season.

    Act+Acre

    Promising review: "I’ve used this oil once and it def helped. It has a light scent similar to baby oil and the applicator is easy to use. My scalp was itchy and angry pre-application and after the 20 min soak time and a shower, my scalp felt soothed. Glad this product exists." β€”Act+Acre Customer

    Get it from Act+Acre or Amazon for $42.

    22. Living Proof's Phd Dry Shampoo you'll pat yourself on the back for buying when you realize you can do your hair and keep it lookin' fab for days. Ugh, dry shampoo really should be praised as one of the wonders of the world.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best dry shampoo I've found. I have super-fine hair that tends to flatten out and look greasy if I don't wash every day. This helps me stretch it to a second day easily and sometimes a third. It doesn't leave any residue, and I feel like it effectively makes my hair at least look cleaner. It fluffs it up a bit without having that really noticeable heavy feeling or excessive fluffiness that some dry shampoos leave." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.

    dysonhair / Via instagram.com

    I actually own one of these bad boys and was blown away by how high-tech it is. It even has an airplane mode! Which brings me to my only piece of advice β€” do not accidentally pull the airplane mode tab fully out of the straightener when you try to set it up. Because I accidentally did and my husband had to use pliers to put it back in properly. Aside from that, this gadget was incredible to use hands-free. I have wavy-curly hair and had straightened in it about 10 minutes (even after having it in a bun the entire day and night prior!).

    Promising review: "I am 38-years-old and I've finally found the one! By the one I mean the ONLY hair straightener in the world that delivers salon quality results at home. For the first time in my life, I can stop going to the salon once a week to get my hair done, and actually make it look amazing by myself. Hats off to the whole Dyson team for inventing this hair tool, I'm a guaranteed lifer. This is also the first time in my life any product has impressed me so much that I took the time to do a review, I'm just so excited to finally be able to my hair at home and have it look absolutely professional. Thank you Dyson!" β€”MaggieMo82

    Get it from Ulta for $499.99.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been using this type of roller for quite some time, as I have thin hair. I am always looking for products that create at least the illusion of thicker hair. The problem I found with other brands was that they cracked or the ends popped off and I was always buying more. These are great! Durable and do EXACTLY what I wanted. I am now a big fan. I will not have to replace them as the quality is very good. I highly recommend!" β€”terra

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "Okay, I love this thing so much. My hair is down to my chest and I love to curl it, but have zero patience to do so. This is very easy to use and makes my hair look great, as well as cuts curling time in half. I've already had two friends ask me what I used to curl my hair and one ordered it for herself and I gifted one to my other friend." β€”Marianne R. Brown

I was very happy with the vibrance of the colors. Be careful when buying the shades of blue and green you want. The pictures of the colors are a bit distorted when translated to online. Not the company's fault. I have purchased several other colors for CosPlay for Twitch Streaming." β€”Sthan Dust
