Straight away you notice the sweet summer time scent and how lightweight the product is.

I’ve tried plenty of expensive products but this works the best and the formula is so creamy it leaves my hair so soft.

It is laying nicely considering I haven't cut or trimmed my hair in over a year so I have funky layer from my chin to my collar bone.

    Target

    Promising review: "Best dry shampoo I’ve ever used - and I’ve used a lot. It does not leave a white residue and keeps the hair feeling soft. Some dry shampoos make the hair feel like it had a ton of buildup from the product but this one doesn’t. It’s the only dry shampoo I’ll use!!! Only con is that the bottle doesn’t last very long." —Spaceylacey

    Price: $6.99

    Target

    Promising review: "As a coily girl it’s hard to find products that work with my hair. That means Im always searching because “the one” may not work if my hair is having a moment. I used this spray after washing my hair and clipping my ends. First off, it smells amazing! It has a bit of slip to it, which made combing for my wash and go a breeze. When my hair dried it felt hydrated. I intentionally did not do my normal routine of adding oils to my hair to find out how this spray left my hair. It was not sticky or oily, but you could tell my hair had some type of moisture providing product, which I loved. I will be keeping this spray in my arsenal from now on." —Shay227

    Price: $5.99

    20. An avocado hair milk so you can step into the world of long-lasting moisture. This Black woman-owned pick contains avocado and lavender that gives straight, coily, curly and wavy hair TLC every single time. Say hello to hydration👋!

    Promising review: "I love this hair milk! It has a bit of a softer consistency than the SheaMoisture hair lotion, and so is much easier to spread throughout my 3a/3b hair.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I want to preface this by saying that if Curls hadn't had a giveaway event at Union Square, NYC I probably wouldn't have been so excited about this whole line as it did seem expensive. I've had this product now for over a month. I have a combination of 3B, 3C and 4A hair. My hair seems to be tighter at the back of my head and loser at the front. I purchased this paste because (1) I've never utilized a control paste in my life and (2) I wanted control over my edges. I feel like if my edges are under control, I can extend myself towards four- or five-day hair. This product provides control, shine, and moisture. The hold around the edges does begin to soften in less than three hours which is perfect for me because I'm not seeking an unnatural sleeked look at my edges, I just want my hair to regain its moisture and regain some control. Sometimes i add just a little bit to the top of my hair for all the flyaways and it surely does help to control it. A little goes a long way and this 4-oz container has lasted me a while thus far (more than 1.5 months) considering I've primarily used it for my edges." —Crystal

    Price: $8.99

    22. A purple conditioner for the ones ready to say adios to brassy strands. One of its leading ingredients is purple pigment, which helps to refresh orange and yellow tones in just ONE use to revive your hair color.

    Target

    Promising review: "I use this one to two times a week and leave in for a few minutes following up after using ELVIVE Purple Shampoo. My hair feels clean and soft after using. I'm amazed at how well this tones and neutralizes my blonde hair. It gets rid of unwanted orangey and brassy tones and leaves me with cool ashy blonde hair. It looks like I just got my hair done at the salon every time I use this conditioner." —Kristina3

    Price: $5.49

    23. A scalp treatment, by the iconic actress Taraji P. Henson, meant for textured hair types that desire a deep and rebalancing clean.

    Promising review: "My scalp felt so refreshed and my hair was squeaky clean. I love the way the applicator applies the product directly to my scalp. My scalp was clean but not dry.

    Promising review: "Whoa...this oil was a game changer for me. I do not typically like oils because I was not seeing any significant changes, but this oil gave me a little over half an inch growth on the perimeter of my hair and about 1.5 inches of growth in the middle of my hair which surprisingly was where I was itching a lot. I am shook LOL. I Stan Camille Rose products but this right here is Golden. It’s expensive yes, but worth it because of the variety of oils within and the amount within the bottle a drop is enough to moisturize and induce growth. I almost forgot to mention my edges...honeyyyy! The hair is coming in wild fats like Chewbacca! Baby hairs is popping." —Mimi

    Promising review: "This stuff smells so amazing, like a tropical island getaway. Also, for the price, it performs so well! I try to use as little hair products as possible, and along with shampoo and conditioner, this is the only product my hair needs. Not only is it a heat protectant, but it also provides other benefits for my 2c-3a hair that leans on the dryer side. It’s of medium thickness. I’ve also noticed less shedding/breakage because of this product and will continue to purchase." —nsj97

    Promising review: "Most dry shampoos I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot), make me look like I have dandruff, or they make my hair feel crunchy. This, is a gem. I have fine and oil prone hair, so not washing every day is hard if I want my hair to look healthy and clean. It’s not hard with this dry shampoo, and the price is reasonable too." —aaafamily
