Dreamlover Seamless Thick Cotton Hair Elastic
Starting off with a universal hair accessory we can never get enough of (or even find, sometimes) these Dreamlover hair ties have a perfect 5-star review. One reviewer said, “I was looking for a product like this that didn’t damage my hair and at the same time able to keep my ponytail high.” Others praised the product for its thickness and ability to hold thick, curly hair also. At under $10 for 50 pieces, you’ll be stocked for the year, which is great considering we usually lose hair ties to the abyss at least once or twice a week. Seriously, where do lost ones end up?
JINRI 1875W Professional Salon Grade Hair Dryer
Another 5-star product, this blow dryer brings the heat in more ways than one. The negative ion feature which is known to help smooth hair and prevent damage on the scalp caught our eyes first. Secondly, the fact that the JINRI comes with a detachable concentrator and diffuser also makes it a steal for the price. Reviewers praised the hair dryer’s 3 temperature options, meaning less heat damage when not needed. They also highlighted its ergonomic design and light-weight feel, always a plus for those of us who blow dry a lot – it really can feel like a work out some days.
HSI Professional Argan Oil Heat Protector
To go perfectly with your professional-grade hair dryer, you’ll need a professional-grade heat protectant product – and we found just the one. Argan Oil contains hair nutrient ingredients like vitamin E, ferulic acid, and fatty acids, as well as antioxidants, which help prevent hair cell breakage. Using Argan oil in a convenient spray formula no less, will not only protect your hair from heat damage, but also nourish, moisturize, and also reduce the chances of dry, brittle, and frizzy hair. This heat protectant spray can be used on both natural hair and human hair extensions which we obviously love and it offers versatility for women who wear extensions daily. Another plus of this product is that it can also be used as a leave-in hair treatment, with Argan oil as its base, this will help lock in moisture.
Organic Castor Oil
True to its name, the only listed ingredient is castor oil. Certified organic, cold pressed, so no additives to truly help your hair grow naturally. One loyal reviewer of the product said, “Awesome for skin, lashes and brows. I’ve been using it nightly for 6 years, consistently, and the results speak for themselves. I’ll always use castor oil.” This kit comes with an eyelash and eyebrow applicator for easy usage and if you look at some of the photos people have uploaded into the reviews, the before and after results are quite impressive. Apply a few drops to your hands or fingertips and massage into your scalp evenly to help stimulate hair growth. This can be applied daily – but remember a little goes a long way.
Chloven Hair Scrunchies
Who needs 45 different color scrunchies? At least 1,600 people according to the reviews. While we like the versality in the colors, remember sharing is caring – why not split this purchase with your girls and you can all get in on the scrunchie style. This product is praised for its ability to hold the hair well and not slip. With the velvet texture it is perfect for fall and winter. If you need some ponytail style inspo for your 45 new scrunchies, check out these ponytails for any occasion and put your new purchase to work.
Hair & Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush
Frequent scalp massage not only stimulates hair growth, but also helps to relieve flaky and itchy scalp. The massage exfoliates, getting rid of dead or dry skin for a healthier scalp. This massager shampoo brush helps you clean your hair and work your product in while also delivering on scalp health. Plus, a massager tool will save your nails and make hair wash day a little more relaxing. It’s best to apply your shampoo to your hair and scalp as usual then use the brush to rub the product in, use circular motions and apply pressure to suit your comfort.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
For the days between your hair wash routine, there is always dry shampoo. This amika dry shampoo does not contain talc or aluminum and is instead made of rice starch and 'super-fruit' Sea Buckthorn Berry. While it’s on the pricier side as far as dry shampoos go, fans of the product say it works especially well on thin hair and doesn’t negatively impact color or keratin-treated hair. Plus, the packaging pops in color, who doesn’t like a little fun on their vanity? Keep in mind that while dry shampoo can be a savior it doesn’t replace hair washing. While spacing out your wash routine is essential for hair health, overloading on product like dry shampoo can also have its complications. Like with everything else, use in moderation.
Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray
For women with color-treated hair, you know the damage humidity can cause and how prone you may be to frizz. This product protects your hair and your color when applied to dry hair after shampooing. The spray is heat-activated and is said to be humidity-proof, lasting up to 72 hours or up to 2 to 3 shampoos, a big time and hair-saver for color lovers. Whether you have color-treated hair or not, it’s important to prevent product build-up by thoroughly washing and rinsing on your hair wash days. Another little tip for those who love to experiment with color or try something new like ombre and balayage, hair extensions are a great way to experiment without the chemical damage.
Mizani 25 Miracle Milk Leave-In Conditioner
Any product with the word “miracle” in it can leave anyone skeptic. But this product is loved by Amazon shoppers and professional hairstylists alike. A perfect formula for textured, curly or wavy hair, this product really can be used by anyone as a leave-in treatment, heat protectant, and style prep product. The coconut milk offers moisturizing benefits and reviewers like how it helps tame frizz and strengthens hair. With the cooler weather, moisture is especially important in helping to prevent dry, itchy scalp as well as static. Using a leave-in conditioner a little more often in the cooler months can help stave off these winter hair woes.
DuraComfort Essentials Super Absorbent Anti-Frizz Microfiber Hair Towel
If you’re looking to use your blow dryer less and want to reduce heat damage, microfibre towels help absorb moisture and dry hair faster – without the heat. Microfibre is less damaging than regular, terry cloth towels – but whichever type you use remember not to rub your wet locks between your towel. This causes breakage and shedding, and really does not speed up the hair drying process. The towel is 41” X 19” and can be easily wrapped up like a turban, perfect for when you’re getting ready in the morning or winding down after long day. This hair towel also comes with its own carrying bag so it’s easily packable for the gym or on vacation.
