    2. This Kérastase overnight serum that works while you sleep, so you can wake up with soft, smooth hair. The unique formula absorbs over eight hours, giving "beauty sleep" a new meaning.

    Get it from Kérastase for $65, or from Sephora Canada for $65.

    3. A silk pillowcase that'll keep your tresses from knotting up overnight. Silk doesn't absorb as much moisture as other materials so your hair (and skin!) will retain their hydration throughout the night — plus, it just feels super luxurious to sleep on.

    "For YEARS, I have been chasing the soft, shiny look of my just-salon-styled hair, and just couldn't find the right products — either they left my hair looking and feeling greasy, or they caused build-up on my scalp, or they just plain didn't work at all. But the Herstyler hair repair serum worked wonders the very first time I used it."—Kat Angus

    10. This microfibre towel that will dry your hair twice as fast as a regular towel, while reducing breakage of your more brittle strands because it doesn't tug and pull.

    "Since I ordered mine a little over a month ago, I've used it every night and every other time I shower, and am IN LOVE. It keeps my pillow from getting wet and my hair from dripping. I don't wake up with still-damp hair. And I'm so happy with the way my hair finishes drying while I'm freaking sleeping that I've been just running a brush through it in the morning and calling it good, all because it's *mostly* dry when I go to bed. It's not perfect, but I think it's pretty good for a heat-free and lazy routine."—Natalie Brown

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $20.99. Available in seven colours.

    11. These shampoo and conditioner bars if you're looking for a more eco-friendly and no shampoo way to get silky hair.
