    1. This deep conditioning coconut mask transforms dry, damaged hair, leaving it looking healthier and more hydrated.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    It contains argan oil to help add shine and moisture to over-processed hair that needs some TLC. Just put it on after shampooing, leave it for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse it out and style as normal. Reviewers say it's left their hair soft and shiny, and is great value for money (some say it's as good as Coco and Eve's cult-status mask, which is almost triple the price!). You also get a free detangling brush so you can evenly distribute the product through your hair.

    Price: £11.99

    2. Sometimes an excess of product buildup can sit on your scalp, making your hair look and feel lacklustre even after washing it. This shampoo massager brush gets your hair truly, thoroughly clean thanks to its silicone bristles that are firm enough to lift away buildup and flexible enough to be comfortable to use.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This brush can help to reduce the appearance of flakes, as well as excess product such as hairspray and dry shampoo that may have built up over time. Gently move the brush in circular motions over your scalp after applying shampoo, then rinse it out and enjoy the feeling of a refreshed, cleaner scalp! Because massaging with this improves blood flow to the scalp, it can also contribute to hair growth.

    Price: £4.99

    3. Bouncy, fresh-from-the-salon blowdries are notoriously tricky to do at home, but this heated Babyliss Big Hair rotating styler makes makes it surprisingly easy.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Use this on slightly damp or nearly-dry hair (depending on the length and thickness of your hair) to get a perfectly blow-dried look! Select from one of the two heat settings, choose the direction that you want the brush to rotate, and then lift it through your hair as you would with a barrel brush. Customers love how easy it is to use, plus there's a cool setting so that you can "set" your style once you're done.

    Price: £38.59

    4. Tame pesky flyaway hairs with these finishing sticks that'll help you achieve a perfectly sleek look.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Ever tried to get a perfectly smooth topknot but had to deal with a halo of broken hairs chilling on the top of your head? These sticks will sort them out, and are long-lasting so your style can stay in place all day! The formula is transparent which means you'll be able to use these regardless of your hair colour, and alongside the flyaway taming sticks you'll get a bun maker and 18 U-shaped hair grips.

    Price: £8.99

    5. This pillowcase has one side made of pure mulberry silk, which helps to retain your hair's natural moisture. No more waking up to frizz that wasn't there the night before!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Silk pillowcases help to reduce the friction between your hair and pillowcase that can occur while you sleep, resulting in sleeker hair than you'd get with a regular pillowcase. Customers also say it helps to stop their hair getting tangled overnight! The other side of the case is made of 100% cotton, and it's available in six different colours.

    Price: £13.59

    6. The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density works to improve the health of your hair so that it looks and feels fuller and thicker.

    Lookfantastic

    This treatment is really low maintenance to use as you simply leave it in once applied rather than washing or rinsing it out. Just apply a few drops once a day before bed and massage it onto your (clean and dry) scalp.

    Price: £15.80

    7. This Flex Dry Wet Brush has all the detangling benefits of the original cult-status brush AND can be used with a hairdryer thanks to its vented design and heat-resistant bristles.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This glides through tangles in wet hair without the yanking and pulling that can lead to breakage. Its vented design means more moisture can leave the hair which speeds up the whole drying process, while the thin-yet-sturdy bristles make detangling a breeze.

    Price: £8.96

    8. This statement headband will go with pretty much everything (and covers up greasy roots too).

    ASOS

    9. Like the look of a high ponytail but really don't like the headaches they can cause and the dent they leave in your hair? These invisibobbles can help with that.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The telephone-cord shaped design of these means that it applies uneven pressure around the ponytail, which helps to avoid those annoying kinks. The smooth surface makes them really easy to remove from your hair too – perfect if you've ever experienced the discomfort and yanking that can happen when using a regular one.

    Price: £4.99 for three

    10. This Toni and Guy deep barrel waver creates effortless, natural-looking tousled waves.

    Price / Via amazon.co.uk

    It basically works like a crimper (but with much bigger, looser waves), so you just have to move it down your hair before shaking your hair out once it's finished for a more "undone" look. It works for a variety of hair types because of it's variable temperature settings, and has Ceramic Tourmaline plates that lock in shine, smoothing your hair so that it's beachy but not frizzy.

    Price: £29.89

    11. Or if you want to add some ~movement~ to your hair without any heat, put these foam rollers on before bed and wake up to a head of curls!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    These are made of a flexible foam sponge that feels so gentle on your hair you'll probably forget they're even there. With your hair about 80% dry, roll it from the ends of your hair upwards and then secure it by tying the ends of the roller together. Just take them out when you wake up and enjoy the fact these lil' rollers have done all the work for you!

    Price: £13.99

    12. This vegan-friendly curl defining cream tames frizz and softens curls to make them more manageable.

    This cream is full of natural ingredients like mango butter and sea kelp, leaving a fresh scent and providing tons of moisture and hydration to your curls! It smooths down flyaways so that your curls or waves are perfectly defined, and its special formula means your hair will stay soft even in humidity.

    Price: £6.99

    13. This straightening brush makes getting smoother, straighter hair a breeze thanks to its negative ion technology.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This cleverly-designed brush has anti-scald technology that blocks the heat reaching the tip of the bristle, so you won't have to worry about accidentally hurting your scalp while using it. It'll also automatically shut off after 30 minutes, and there's a silicone heatproof pouch you can use to protect your surfaces from the heat too.

    Price: £30.69

    Urban Outfitters

    This leave-in product really gives you a lot for your money – it protects from heat, detangles, smooths, reduces the appearance of split ends, and more. Its mango and coconut fragrance also smells pretty great too!

    Price: £13

    17. A lot of dry shampoos absorb some excess oil, but don't really make your hair feel clean. This one by Living Proof is different, as it makes your hair look, feel, and smell clean while also leaving hardly any residue.

    Feelunique

    It absorbs sweat, oil, and odour from your hair to make it look great even when you're on day three of not washing it. It also has a time-released fragrance, so you'll be able to enjoy fresh-smelling hair throughout the day and not just when you spray it. There's none of that itchy feeling that can happen with many other dry shampoos either!
