    1. A fresh grapefruit and oatmeal-scented Verb hair mask for repairing damaged hair that needs a little extra TLC — without weighing it down.

    2. A hair-finishing stick to take care of those annoying flyaways and baby hairs that just aren't cooperating so even those quick ponytails and buns can look like a sleek hairstyle that took some effort.

    3. A super absorbent, anti-frizz hair towel that'll cut your hair-drying time in half while avoiding any extra heat damage.

    5. 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.

    6. A curl-restoring treatment formulated with quinoa protein, mongongo oil, and mango butter to restore moisture-protein balance to textured hair, resulting in more defined and elastic curls.

    7. A can of Batiste dry shampoo that'll instantly refresh your hair between washes. It can soak up dirt and grease, making your hair look bouncier and more voluminous.

    8. A purple shampoo to tone down the yellow hues in blonde hair so you can maintain the color you want until you're able to reunite with your colorist.

    9. Elizavecca's collagen protein treatment for damaged, over-processed locks. It can be used on all hair textures to help restore it back to a healthier state.

    10. A detangling brush that'll glide through hair and remove knots without making you cry in the process.

    11. A pure silk pillowcase, because it'll be a game-changer for improving breakage, tangles, and frizz. Plus, it'll look gorgeous on your bed.

    12. Or a silk hair wrap that is actually pretty cute and will preserve your #HairGoals all night. The satin lining should help your hair retain moisture, without feeling uncomfortable during the night.

    13. A biotin and collagen shampoo to help hair look thicker, fuller, and feel stronger. It's also sulfate-free and cruelty-free.

    14. An effective anti-dandruff shampoo you'll love if you constantly stress over dandruff, itchiness, and flaking.

    15. A Moroccanoil leave-in conditioner that uses argan oil, vitamin E, and antistatic agents to help your curly or wavy hair stay soft, defined, hydrated, and frizz-free.

    16. A scalp massager so you can give your head a little extra TLC. This handy tool will not only feel super relaxing, but it'll help with blood flow and assist in removing any product residue that may be hiding in there. AND you can use it whether your hair is wet or dry.

    17. A bottle of Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3, perfect for people with bleached or damaged hair. It works to strengthen your locks from within and reduce breakage. Just apply a generous amount throughout your hair, leave it on for 10+ minutes, rinse, and wash as you normally would.

    18. A deep waver that'll help you achieve gorgeous beach waves without having to use a bunch of different tools and products. This device uses a custom mold that doesn't leave creases and it has an adjustable temperature from 120-390 degrees Fahrenheit.

    19. A Neutrogena clarifying shampoo for cleansing your scalp of product build-up and residue. After getting all the gunk out of your hair, it'll be much easier to style and manage.

    20. A sea salt spray you can spritz in your hair to give it a natural, tousled look — and it has a nice summery scent of sand jasmine.

    21. A bottle of Celeb Luxury Colorwash guaranteed to keep any fun dye job looking fresh and vibrant like you just got it done (even if it's been weeks).

    22. A pack of soft twist rollers so you can create lively curls with minimal effort. Just twist 'em into damp or moisturized hair and leave them in for a few hours (or overnight) and your hair will have some beautiful new texture — minus the heat damage.

    23. DevaCurl's SuperCream styler to hydrate your curls and control the frizz, using coconut oil as a key ingredient. It's also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

    24. A budget-friendly Revlon turbo hair dryer with a diffuser attachment and 3X ceramic coating for less damage, so you can have your hair looking luscious and voluminous after the shower.

    25. An orange vanilla conditioning detangler spray made with vegan, plant-based ingredients to make after shower brushing a whole lot less painful and time consuming.

    26. A SheaMoisture deep conditioner with moringa and avocado designed to help thoroughly moisturize natural curls and minimize breakage.

    27. And a serum that uses a combination of oils (argan, maize, procaxi, and camellia) to help your hair shine, fight frizz, and feel soft. You can add some in before, during, or after blow-drying.
