    1. A hair finishing stick to take care of those annoying flyaways and baby hairs that just aren't cooperating. It's made of natural plant ingredients that have an immediate effect on your 'do.

    Amazon / Via

    I have a ton of flyaways and baby hairs around my crown and at the base of my neck, and this stick has been great for making my ponytails and buns look a lot neater and more refined. — Kat Angus

    3. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer hot air brush to assist you in getting the perfect blowout in *half* the time.

    Amazon / Via

    I have very thick and wavy hair, and I don't have anywhere near the coordination it takes to style my hair using both a hair dryer and a round brush at the same time. This Revlon gadget is AMAZING, giving me the closest thing to a salon-worthy blowout as I've ever experienced. My hair looks and feels amazing, and my hair is dry and styled in way less time than before. — Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $64.96 (available in two colours).

    4. A set of satin pillowcases, because they're a game changer for improving breakage, tangles, and frizz while you sleep.

    Amazon / Via

    I also have these pillowcases (spoiler alert: I personally use several products on this list), and I've noticed my hair is much less frizzy when I wake up, with far less breakage. — Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.99 (available in four sizes and 15 colours).

    5. A giant pack of velvet hair scrunchies, because they're not just a trendy VSCO girl thing, they're actually really comfortable and cute for when you need to throw your hair up in a messy bun or pony.

    Amazon / Via

    I have thick curly hair and I wear one almost every day! I don't have to worry about them snapping or hurting my head. — Kayla Boyd

    Get a 20-pack from Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    6. A hair repair serum for transforming dry, damaged hair into soft and shiny locks. The mix of aloe and argan oils should help de-frizz your mane and improve split ends.

    Amazon / Via

    I use one or two pumps of this stuff after towel-drying my hair a bit, let it sit and absorb for about ten minutes, and then when I style my hair, it's super soft and frizz free. It's been one of my best hair product purchases. — Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $16.49.

    7. A satin-lined sleep cap that is actually pretty cute and will preserve your #HairGoals all night. The satin lining should help your hair retain moisture and the lightweight jersey outer will feel comfortable at all times.

    9. A super absorbent, anti-frizz microfibre hair towel to cut your hair drying time in half, without adding extra heat damage.

    Amazon / Via

    Ever since I started using a microfibre hair towel, I hardly ever use a blow dryer anymore. I'd rather not add heat to my curly hair unless totally necessary, so I'll wash my hair at night, wrap it in a microfibre towel and let it dry on its own. It helps my curls feel much healthier — and it keeps my hair out of the way while I'm doing my skincare routine. — Kayla Boyd

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $29.68.
