    1. An argan oil hair mask that'll make your hair smooth by repairing it with 100% organic jojoba oil, aloe vera and keratin.

    Plus, it works on a wide variety of hair types.

    Promising review: "Thank you argan oil for saving my hair!!! I live in AZ and the heat mixed with our hard water killed my hair. Literally I could run my fingers through it and pull chunks out. I've used this three times in the last week and it's like I have brand new hair. I will forever buy this stuff!" β€”amber

    Get it from Amazon for $12

    2. A John Frida frizz serum for anyone with enough static in their hair to charge their phone.

    Promising review: "I'm not sure what I'd do without my Frizz Ease. It smooths out my unruly hair leaving it manageable, but not heavy, sticky, or weighed down. My hair actually looks good when I use this product." β€”Dana G

    Get it from Amazon for $8.18 (available in three styles).

    3. 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.

    Promising review: "For about five years I have been experiencing hair loss. I have tried all the brand name shampoos to help control the hair loss, but none of these shampoos helped much at all. Then I discovered this! It doesn't work overnight, but it works! And I am still on my first bottle. I have short hair and wash it twice a week. My friends can't believe how much fuller my hair is! It is truly amazing! I would highly recommend this shampoo for thinning hair!" β€”The D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in four sizes).

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

    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. The fibers will come off on your fingers or get under your nails if you scratch your head, and it comes off if it gets wet. Getting caught in light rain hasn't been a problem as long as you don't get soaked. I would definitely recommend this For anyone, any age, with thinning hair or bald patches." β€”Christine Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $23.39 (available in four sizes and nine colors).

    5. A Bed Head waver with adjustable tourmaline ceramic plates so you can get a variety of styles (from tighter almost-curls to beachy mermaid hair to loose, tousled locks) β€” all using one tool.

    It comes on a swiveling cord so you can twist it to reach every strand of hair, without getting tangled up, *and* auto shuts off so you can leave the house for the day without panicking.

    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." β€”BeckyfromBama

    Get it from Amazon for $35.92.

    6. A volumizing hairspray so you don't have to spend $40 on a blowout for your night out on the town.


    Promising review: "No other spray is this good. I have been using it for about 30 years, since it came out. I introduced it to my hair dresser who owns her own shop and she loves it as well. It's like no other. It gives lift and it's very workable with less product. I personally love it because you can comb through it if you don't like the way it looks and start over. It holds very well β€” all day in most cases. Now that I am older and have thinning hair, it's as necessary as taking your medicine. I can't live without it." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in six sizes and two styles).

    7. A detangling brush to work through hair that's acting knotty.

    Made for those times when you're literally about to tear your hair out.

    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." β€”Amazon Customer

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

    8. An all-natural henna powder that'll have you saying buh-bye to hair dye.

    Seriously, you're telling me this girl didn't just come from a salon?!?

    Promising review: "I can't stress enough how much I LOVE henna. I use it for pretty much everything β€” 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." β€”Krista M.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    9. A nourishing coconut hair masque that'll make you feel like a whole new person!


    Promising review: "So in love with this product! I used it for the first time the day of a wedding I was attending and my hair felt, looked, and smelled amazing! I received so many compliments and I cannot stop touching my hair. I've already recommended it to many of my friends, and will continue to do so!" β€”Hailie

    Get it from Amazon for $49.90.

    10. A flat iron with heat settings that range from 170Β°F to 450Β°F so you can style your hair no matter the type!

    Promising review: "I’m a licensed cosmetologist and I love this flat iron. I’ve used flat irons that were over 100 dollars, and this one works better than most high end ones. I do a lot of natural hair blowouts/silk presses and this works wonders! β€”Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $37.06 (available in three colors).

    11. A hydrating mask over 3,000 people give five star reviews to, because just look at how well it works!

    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 β€” I love my hair now." β€”Madhu

    Get it from Amazon for $12.30.

    12. A professional 5-star cordless clipper for anyone out there trying to have their hair fresh daily without having to spend money every time their hair grows half an inch. SMH.

    Promising review: "The fact that it's cordless is amazing but it goes beyond that. The battery is very powerful and it lasts around two hours on one single charge. The great thing is you can them corded if it dies on you (which only happens if you never charge them between cuts) and it charges while in use. Also another upgrade is the fade staggered tooth blade which is perfect for blending. The fact that these blades can be zero gapped is incredible especially for getting that first line out from bald fades etc. without having to wear out your trimmers." β€”AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    13. A pack of three dry shampoos sure to keep your hair grease-free no matter how often you decide to hit your snooze button and skip that pesky morning shower.

    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 β€” you won't be sorry!!" β€”KathleenBB

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $15.98 (available in three sizes and nine colors).

    14. A blow dryer attachment that'll bring the salon to your very own living room.

    Promising review: "If you're like me and always wait until the last minute to style your hair, this will be your best friend. I've had issues in the past with completely ruining wet sets, twist out styles, etc. because after one full night of uncomfortable sleep my hair still doesn't fully DRY. I'm too cheap and don't have the space for a pro hooded dryer. I had almost given up on styling my own hair until I found this! No more frustration! β€”Lea Olive

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.

    15. A color deposit shampoo so strong you're gonna forget your stylist's name before you need to go back to get a touch-up., Amazon

    Promising review: "This shampoo is awesome. I used this wet and it gave my hair a slight pink tint. The next time I applied it to dry hair in pieces to see if it would be more vivid and it definitely turned those pieces a lot pinker. It lasts a few washes, just make sure you also use conditioner because this can feel drying. My hair is dark blonde with highlights and it shows better on the highlights. You can still see it on the dark blonde too, it's just not as vibrant. I'm sold on this stuff and will be getting more of it!" β€”Jess

    Get it on Amazon for $35 (available in 10 colors)

    16. A set of hair extensions that'll fool everyone you know β€” including yourself!

    The single most miraculous part? They're under $10.

    Promising review: "This was the best nine dollars I've spent in a long time! The color is a perfect match to my hair. The hair is very long β€” I cut at least 12 inches off. It stays in place very well. This is a fun addition to my going out look." β€”SBonert

    Get them from Amazon for $9.49 (available in four sizes and 24 colors).

    17. An ingenious John Frieda hot air brush designed to be 50% brush, 50% blowdryer, and will get your hair 100% awesome.

    It's got two heat settings and also claims to reduce frizz and boost shine!

    Promising review: "Let's face it. It's near impossible to get a salon blowout look at home. Your arms get tired, and trying to manage a brush and blowdryer is a feat in and of itself. This brush is not just good, it's great! I love this brush! I actually like the way my hair turns out with this styler better than what I get at the salon β€” seriously. I love my hairdresser and she does a great job, but I have actually gotten more compliments on my hair when I do it myself with this tool. I'll probably get two more to give to my daughters as well, that's how much I love it. This is great and you can't beat the price!!" β€”debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two sizes).

    Get it from Amazon for $11.30 (available in three sizes).

    19. A styling treatment that'll strengthen, protect and add shine all at once.

    Promising review: "I have very fine frizzy hair, and this stuff worked a small miracle on my hair. After using a very small amount, my hair looks healthy and nourished. From frizzy to fab! I love this stuff. It's a new part of my routine for sure!" β€”Alohacat

    Get it from Amazon for $10.46 (available in three sizes).

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

    It's great for your skin, too!

    Promising review: "I've been using this for about two years. I don't know how I ever lived without it! I use it as a hair mask once a week and my hair's never been healthier!!!!! I also use it as a moisturizer and for shaving my legs. I highly recommend it! It's a great product at a great price." β€”Lindsay Thorn

    Get it from Amazon for $14.83.

    21. An anti hair-loss shampoo made with argan oil that'll bring those straggling strands back to life.

    Promising review: "Omg. Guys this stuff actually works I'm dead serious. I never read reviews but I figured I should and show you guys pictures because I'm so happy with the results. I have been struggling with hair loss since I started undergrad, I'm 23 right now currently in graduate school 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 been16 days as of today and the results are insane." β€”christine rosenberg

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. And a brush that'll give your pet a Mia-Thermopolis-level makeover.

    The brush is self-cleaning and exactly the beauty treatment your best friend deserves.

    Promising review: "I have a small cockapoo, so her hair is pretty high maintenance. What intrigued me about this brush is how it's basically self-cleaning, with a button that pushes the hair out, because cleaning brushes out in the past hasn't exactly been pleasant. So far I'm extremely pleased with how it works β€” clean up was so easy and effortless! I've read some of the other reviews about it hurting a fur baby's skin, but keep in mind that grooming brushes like these are for dogs with long hair! So if your dog has short hair, this is NOT the right brush for you. It's for fluffing up fluffy dogs and detangling high maintenance coats." β€”Jamie

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.
