    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Like many of the people who have posted reviews, I've tried every curl cream in the book. High end to low end, I've tried them all. I can't remember how I stumbled across this product but it was the reviews that made me want to give it a try. Thank goodness I did and that's why I'm writing this review. This product is amazing. I have waist length wavy/curly red hair and I only have to use two pumps of the product to coat all my hair. My curls are wonderfully moisturized and shaped with absolutely ZERO greasy or crunchy feel. A little goes a long way. Highly recommend this!" —AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.90.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had very LOW expectations for this. I accidentally cut my bangs too short the other night because my puppy distracted me mid cut. I thought it would be funny to buy this and wear it one day. I got it for laughs mostly, not really expecting it to look normal. AND OMG I AM SHOCKED! First of all, it's the exact same shade as my hair color. It was super easy to put on. The hair feels soft and realistic. I am so beyond amazed. So far, no one has been able to tell that the bangs are fake! I love them!" —Jrod

I have been struggling with hair loss since I started undergrad, and I have found each year my hair is getting thinner and thinner and my hairline is receding on the corners. I saw this and read the good reviews. Now I see why the reviews are so amazing. It's been 16 days as of today and the results are insane." —christine rosenberg

I apply it straight out of the shower while scrunching a bit, then I plop it with a microfiber towel on top of my head for like 20 min. I then let it air dry the rest of the way without really touching it and then I get really nice curls/waves without any frizz! Super easy and no diffuser or hair dryer needed for naturally curly or wavy hair." —Katie

Seriously, after curling my hair with a curling iron AND using hair spray, my hair is basically straight again in two hours. This is the ONLY curling iron that I've used that actually works and is super easy to use. I actually tried using it without spraying my hair and the curls stayed intact until the next day." —Carolyn

I literally feel like a pro curling my hair and it took less than 10 minutes! It used to take forever with those darn curling irons. Never again! Seriously tho, this is a must have for all." —em_b_sd

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the first hair color I've ever used back in 1995, Atlantic Blue on my unbleached natural medium brown hair and it took amazingly. Since then, I've tried everything I come across hoping for something that lasts longer, but this is the best I've found. It typically lasts 4-6 weeks on my hair. This is a vegetable dye and will not harm your hair if left on too long. Actually, it's very conditioning and makes my hair soft and shiny after use. Always wash and rinse in cold water and use a mild shampoo made for colored hair!" —Kelrosner

    Get it from Amazon fro $7.99 (available in 21 colors).

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely amazing. I was one step away from going to the dermatologist. I had severe dandruff that was so bad I could shake my head and it would come off. With just a few uses per week, I got rid of all of my flakes. My scalp also stopped burning from dryness. My hair has never been healthier." —Moo Moo

    Get it from Amazon starting at $14.10.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Stop searching and buy this! I purchased this purple shampoo on a whim after seeing it on a BuzzFeed article. THIS SHAMPOO, let me tell you, has pulled any and every unwanted orange color from my hair. The shampoo is PURPLE, almost black. It reeks to high heaven, but so do most toners and glazes a salon would put on, so it's really not an issue to me. I use it once a week and leave it on for about five minutes while I shave in shower, and it does its job. Within two weeks it pulled all the orange brassiness from my hair and has left me with a wintery icy blonde that I never thought my hair could be. I love it so much and don't know what state of pumpkin I would be without this shampoo." —Lenna K.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in eight sizes).

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm always skeptical of products that claim to 'glide through' hair, but this brush actually works! I have very thick, kinky, coily hair and this brush passes through my hair easily when it's wet or when it's dry. I'd recommend this product to anyone looking for a good detangling brush." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.77 (available in two colors).

    14. A bottle of It's a 10 blowdry volumizer with tough, all-day hold so the time you spent perfecting your favorite hairstyle won't be lost throughout the day.

    Promising review: "Wow I love this product! Even my husband noticed and said, 'Your hair has more body!' It keeps my style and adds body and volume. I spray it in my hair when damp, blow dry, and then put it in a bun overnight. It comes out curly and holds the curl all day! My hair is completely straight without it." —Denise

    Get it from Amazon for $13.92 (available in ten sizes).

    15. A beautiful L–part lace front wig because it's a super quick, easy, and affordable way to change up your look in minutes.

    Brittaney Trent / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Let me to start off saying I have been wearing wigs for at least 13 years. I do not wear weaves or extensions, and I have very thick hair and lots of edges! This is my favorite wig of all time! This wig is very natural-looking it does have that Brazilian texture and wave, plus good body and flow. It fits edge to edge and gave me a little room to put out a little edges which was a plus! I don't want to take it off! It's a win–win. You get a beautiful lace-front for 20 something dollars!" —Grace

    Get it from Amazon for $30.09 (available in 12 colors).

    16. A biotin shampoo formulated with nutrient-rich botanicals like B5 zinc and coconut oil to nourish your hair and stimulate your scalp, removing any buildup that may be blocking your pores and helping your hair strands get strong. Believe me, this stuff is really gonna ~grow~ on you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I saw this on a BuzzFeed post and figured it was worth a shot and it is. For several years now, I have had thinning near the front of my hairline and a balding spot forming over my left temple/forehead region. No new growth in years. I have used this shampoo for one week and I have little stubble there now and I swear it feels like new growth! It's crazy. I had been hopeful but this is really fast. I even made my husband feel that balding spot to make sure I wasn't imagining it and he confirmed it. I have changed nothing else in my routine, only adding this shampoo. In addition, I have had dermatitis on my scalp for years, which I'm pretty sure contributed to the hair loss. I haven't had itching or flaking since I started using this." —Amber Copeland

    Get it from Amazon for $18.40 (available in four sizes).

    17. A molding wax for those stubborn hairs that need medium hold to lock them in all day. This formula has minimal shine and will give your hair some added fullness.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have very fine hair and its so hard to do anything with it because so. I ordered this based on the reviews and how it won't weigh down or make my hair look greasy. This stuff is great! After I blow dry my hair, I add a small amount (about size of a nickel) into my hand and then begin to apply it. It gives my hair a nice shine but more importantly, it gives my hair the fullness and hold that I need. Overall great stuff!" —L. Avila

    Get it from Amazon for $11.70.

    18. A hydrating hair mask with over 3,000 five-star reviews, because it deeply conditions, detangles, hydrates, and revives dull and over-processed hair.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. After frequent flat ironing, my hair began to lose its nice texture. It became very dry and totally damaged. I was searching for something that I could use to revive my hair. After two washes, my hair looks so soft and shiny. Wow — I love my hair now." —Madhu

    Get it from Amazon for $12.30.

    19. A 2-in-1 ionic hair straightener brush so you can finally enjoy getting ready in the morning without ~literally~ pulling your hair out!

    amazon.com

    Safety features include auto-off and auto temperature lock which automatically shuts off the brush if not used for 60 minutes. Temperatures range from150°C (300°F) to 230°C (450°F) for any hair type.

    Promising review: "Yaaaaaa'll! Buy this thing. Seriously, add it to your cart right now and check out. RIGHT NOW! I have never liked straightening my hair. It took way too long (upwards of two hours) the flat iron would get caught in my hair, I'd burn my scalp trying to get too close, it just was a hassle. I'm so glad I tried this because what used to be a 2+ hour ordeal took only 45 minutes — and most of that was taking my hair down and detangling it from washing it! The actual straightening process was maybe 20 mins." —Manuel

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    20. An all-natural henna powder so you can say goodbye to hair dye for good.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can't stress enough how much I LOVE henna. I use it for pretty much everything — hair, nails, and lips. This is the cheapest henna I've found that hasn't lost its quality. I've been using henna for about a year and it leaves a gorgeous, natural-looking red that no chemical dye I've used could beat." —Krista M.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    amazon.com

    It comes on a swiveling cord so you can twist it to reach every strand of hair, without getting tangled up, plus it auto shuts off so you can leave the house without worrying too much.

    Promising review: "I love the speed with which I can do my hair with this waver. Using a traditional curling iron takes me much longer and often gives my hair that overstyled, helmet-head look. This gives me loose beach waves that look just messy enough to come across as natural. I have short hair and it's great for my length. I highly recommend." —BeckyfromBama

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    22. An anti-frizz hair-repairing serum made with argan oil, vitamin E, and aloe vera to control frizz, lessen tangles, and hydrate split ends.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had an allergy in my scalp 10 months ago that made the back of my head bald. I was really desperate to try a hair growing product to bring my hair back. I read online and found out castor oil is one of the greatest products for hair growth, but there are lots of castor oil brands. I tried this product because of the good reviews, and ingredients because my scalp was really sensitive. My hair became softer than before and thicker, and one bottle of this castor oil lasted almost a year!" —AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.15.

    24. A multi-purpose coconut oil to moisturize and keep your hair long, strong, and healthy for years and years to come.

    Promising review: "I love, love, love this stuff!! I, like others with dark brown hair, have had to put up with trying to get all that white stuff out of my hair when using dry shampoo. Which just ended up leaving my hair dull looking. But this product is simply amazing! Not only does my hair have much more body, but it also blends with my color, reduces my part line, and truly fills my hair with a fantastic depth of color, fullness, and manageability. Get this — you won't be sorry!!" —KathleenBB

    This won best inexpensive dry shampoo on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $15.63 (available in three sizes and nine colors).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am growing out my natural grey/silver hair, and the lengths are bleached light blonde with a unpleasant yellow tinge. For the last year I have tried so many toners, purple shampoos, color rinses, etc. This is the only product that worked...now my hair is all the same color and I am finally free of the yellowish hue!" —Jess

    Get it on Amazon for $35 (available in 12 colors).

    28. A pack of 42 twist-flex rods for anyone trying to get curls in the easiest way possible. Just fall asleep with them in and wake up. It's that easy!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I left the largest rollers, the purple and grey ones, in for two hours to see how the curls would turn out. The results were great! The rollers are the perfect size and gave me the same look as my expensive digital perm. I've been getting digital perms for the last year to the tune of $200 every 3-4 months, so these rollers, at $12 a pack, are a steal." —Hoyablue

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in three sizes).

    29. A bottle of hair-building fibers that'll help cover balding spots while you're still trying to grow hair in.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to try this, and I'm hoping my review will help someone else who feels the same way. I have alopecia areata, which causes circles or ovals of hair to fall out all at once. You can see in the pictures that a large patch is starting to grow in, but is still extremely sparse. The hair fibers are a godsend. I use the dark brown with the spray applicator. You'd be able to see if you got up close to look, and it works better where there's some hair than areas that are completely bare, but even on bare patches its much better. I would definitely recommend this for anyone, any age, with thinning hair or bald patches." —Christine Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in four sizes and nine colors).
