    Things For Anyone Who "Just Can't" With Their Hair Lately

    If your hair just hasn't been cooperating lately, perhaps what you need is a great hair mask or a quality curler to come to the rescue.

    1. A L’Oreal hair treatment that works its magic in eight seconds to give you shinier, more hydrated locks — no matter your hair type. Magic indeed!

    2. A Revlon hot air brush because it dries your hair, imparts volume and shine, and makes it look like you totally went and got a professional blowout — in MINUTES.

    3. A bottle of Fanola No Yellow shampoo to wash those brassy orange undertones down the drain! They are not welcome in your hair! The violet pigment will get rid of those unwanted hues on gray, platinum, blonde or highlighted hair.

    4. A cult-fave Elizavecca collagen hair mask that restores the purity of your hair and helps with oil control, frizziness, damaged hair, the works! It's lightweight too so no heavy ingredients involved. Now you can flip your hair all you want and show off how good it looks.

    5. A bottle of water-resistant L'Oréal root cover-up spray if you just don't have the desire to shell out $$$ at the salon every single time to get your roots redone. Spray this and welcome seamless coverage with no residue.

    6. A thickening shampoo for fine and thin hair because it'll work to give you lightweight body and volume every time — you can physically feel the thickness of your hair after using this!

    7. An anti-dandruff shampoo formulated with Ketoconazole 1% because no one likes an itchy scalp. Using this will keep your dandruff at bay, resulting in a happy head.

    8. A set of large matte hair claw clips because they're really in right now and also super efficient! They're strong enough to hold thick hair, hold thin hair easily, and even if your hair's in a messy bun, the design instantly makes your hairdo look chic.

    9. A detangling brush so you look forward to brushing your hair. This will get through the knots and tangles your regular brush can't solve. And it has over 20,000 5-star reviews on Amazon because yeah, it's that good. People swear by it for detangling fast without damaging hair. You won't have to invest in three different combs hoping one of 'em does the trick!

    10. A tapered ceramic Remington Pro curling wand that gives you the lovely curls you've always wanted (and reviewers say it's holy grail status)! If you, like me, were never able to figure out the curl clamp ones, no worries — turns out there is hope for us after all!

    11. A ~surreal~ iridescent mermaid scrunchie to elevate your daily (read: boring) ponytail or bun in a totally dreamy way. Leave it on your wrist as a pretty accessory too!

    12. Or these bow knot hair scrunchies when you want a flirty touch to your fits. When you don't know which way to go, cute's the way!

    13. A scalp detox that uses botanical oils like moringa and amaranth to cleanse, moisturize, and soothe your scalp. Basil and baobab oil nourish, promote hair growth, and protect against environmental damage. Scalp health is important too!

    14. A Briogeo conditioning hair mask because it improves the long-term health of your damaged, over-processed hair with a 97% naturally derived formula. It uses rosehip oil, algae, and B vitamins to nourish your tresses with nutrients and much-needed hydration. It's a must-have!

    16. A hair finishing stick to neaten and smooth those annoying flyaways and baby hairs in seconds so you won't have to deal with them sticking up, out, or doing their own wild thing. It applies like mascara but it's for your hair.

    17. OR an edge control gel for doing the same thing for your edges and baby hairs — no flaking, no residue, all sleek.

    18. A cute INH Hair messy bun because it literally takes your hair to new heights and is a quick way to instantly transform your look (and your IG grid). It adds so much volume, especially if you have thin hair. And if you want to take it a step further, these space buns will make everyone do a double take!

    19. These flexible foam rods so that you wake up to those same voluminous curls you get when you curl with heat. Pop these in overnight, have some fun with how funky you look, and bam!

    20. Still prefer a curling iron? This automatic ceramic curling iron is great for the styling-challenged. If a regular curling iron never works for you, this will give you to give you such dreamy curls, you won't look back.

    21. A shower brush (this is Tracee Ellis Ross' haircare line!!) to comb conditioner through your strands in the shower because your fingers ain't it. This especially helps curly- and coily-haired folks style, detangle, and gently work in the good stuff through wet hair!
