    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Rhyme & Reason conditioner that'll leave your locks feeling silky smooth, like you've just stepped out of a luxurious salon. This stuff also works *wonders* for detangling.

    The Rhyme & Reason conditioner

    Promising review: "I’m not one to go out of my way to write a review, but WOW! For reference I have fine, thick, long hair. I have been struggling for years to find a conditioner that doesn’t completely weigh down my hair, but still keeps my hair smoothed out and soft. And wow does this do that, plus I noticed my scalp doesn’t get oily as fast with this. Side note: I love the 100% recycled plastic bottle, and if you are wondering why it’s designed to be this shape, it’s to fit more product per truckload. A cylinder has lots of unused space between them when being shipped. Love to see it!!" —Lauren

    Price: $8.99

    2. A summertime-scented shaving foam with a rich, soothing lather to keep your legs, underarms, and anywhere else you're running that razor over moisturized and protected. No more bumps, burns, nicks, or cuts, please.

This stuff is loose enough to give you great coverage and comes in tons of fun colors and styles, to boot.
