    I have one, and it feels really good on the scalp. Also, it's making me use less shampoo!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $3.85.

    2. Toppik hair building fibres can hide your bald spots and transform thinning hair into full, realistic hair. It’s made of coloured keratin protein, so it gives a naturally thick look to the hair. These fibres are water-, wind-, and perspiration-resistant.

    Toppik recommends you dry and style your hair as usual, shake or spray Toppik into thinning areas, and then gently pat the hair to disperse fibres.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $29.01 (available in three sizes, and nine colours).

    3. This bestselling organic cold-pressed castor oil is a hit among people wanting to thicken the hair on their scalp, beard, brows, and eyelashes. It comes with two spoolies, and two liner brushes for precise application to the brows and lash line.

    Amazon / Via

    Cold-pressed oils are usually higher quality because none of the nutrients in the oil are lost to heat in the process of extracting it. Castor oil has long been hailed for a long time as a wonderful conditioner and hair growth enhancer. I personally lost a huge chunk of my lashes recently due to a stye; I credit cold-pressed castor oil for helping them grow back within two weeks.

    4. Neutrogena's T/Gel therapeutic shampoo will relieve the peskiest scalp problems, like seborrheic dermatitis, scalp psoriasis, flaky dandruff, itching, and inflammation.

    5. A cult favourite for people with blonde, silver, and platinum hair is the B UNIQ Purple Hair Mask. It reduces brassiness and leaves your hair conditioned with toning properties.

    Amazon / Via

    It is enriched with moisturizing oils, and vitamin B5 to rejuvenate even the driest of hair, and it's sulphate-, silicone, SLS-, and paraben-free. The purple toner in it works to cancel out the yellow-orange brassiness left from a bad bleach job or sun exposure.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $29.95. You can also get the Purple Shampoo for $29.95.

    6. A heat protectant spray is a must if you heat-style your hair often (yes, blowdrying also counts as heat-styling)! TRESemmé's Thermal Creations styles, softens, and protects your hair all at once. Its spray nozzle is very efficient for evenly distributing the product on your locks to ensure full protection.

    Amazon / Via

    This spray can resist heat up to 230 degrees Celsius, which is as hot as an oven when you're baking chicken!

    8. Styling products can leave residue in your hair, and this crazy-affordable anti-residue shampoo by Neutrogena is life-changing to resolve that issue. If you have buildup on your scalp from styling products, or if your hair gets greasy within a day of washing (like mine does), using this once a week will help extend the time between shampoos.

    Amazon / Via

    I was worried about this shampoo stripping my hair of any moisture, but its mild formula has been incredibly gentle on my hair. Shampooing your hair too often can cause your scalp to produce more oils to compensate for frequent dryness, so this is a great way to program your hair back into behaving itself!

    Bonus: they're also wonderful for your skin. Buyers love the comfort satin pillowcases provide, and the ease of not having to spend too much time detangling in the morning. Some say their hair was saved thanks to these!
