Promising review: “I like the look of decorative pins but avoid them due to fear of breakage. These were designed specifically for curly hair, so there are no worries. They glide smoothly onto hair and can be removed without causing damage. They’re also really cute.” —Antoinette
Promising review: “I try every new product under the sun to help tame my unruly hair. With OUAI I could immediately feel my hair becoming smooth as I used it because of the richness of the product. After just one use, my dry, kinky, wavy hair became shiny, healthy, and fully of body — even the nastiest grays that pop up relaxed. My hair actually feels so soft too. And, the bonus is the lovely fragrance of fresh flowers that feels like I’m walking through a garden. I love, love, love OUAI. I’d be extremely surprised if you didn’t too.” —Sclancy
Promising review: “My hair goes all the way down to my bum and this fits great with room to spare. Not only is it great quality, but it’s also very cute and stylish! I love it and if this one ever wears out I’ll buy another. The bow was a little in my vision but it’s easy to move and it stayed out of the way. Well worth the price tag!” —Jen P.
Promising review: “My hair grows somewhat fast so I find myself coloring my roots at minimum every two weeks, which I think is bad for my hair. This product has been a lifesaver in allowing me to extend out that time frame some. I wish I had found it sooner!” —Mmandkcs
Promising review: “These headbands are great! They’re not too snug and they fit perfectly. I originally bought them for ‘lazy days’ when I don’t feel like doing my hair, but have now found that I really enjoy wearing them to the gym. They are cute, but also work well to keep my hair (and sweat) off my forehead when I’m working out. They also hold up really well in the wash!” —Linette Illastron-Vinluan
It’s made of boar bristles that’ll create tension and shine (for teasing) while the nylon bristles easily move through your hair. This brush also has a pointed handle for parting.
Promising review: “Where has this been all my life and how did I not know about teasing brushes? I have never been able to get a good tease using a rat tail comb so thought I would try this brush after reading about teasing brushes in a vintage hairstyle book. WOW. I have fairly fine hair and I am amazed at how well this works to give me volume. It’s just the right width for my bangs too. The brush is well made, no loose bristles. I get it really sticky using pomade and it washes up nicely. Great price, costs a few dollars more at my local beauty shop. I really like this brush and recommend it.” —Judi W
Promising review: “I have very long wavy hair. It tends to get frizzy, but if I use this brush while it’s still wet it’s less frizzy when it dries. I use this to brush in deep conditioner in the shower, and I even have an extra one that I use on my dog that’s very sensitive. The flexible bristles pull hair less so if you have a sensitive scalp, this may be your best everyday brush option.” —Malethyst
OK so basically, you take a section of hair underneath the top layer and crimp the part closest to your scalp. That way, the top layers sit a little higher than normal with the crimping underneath!
Promising review: “My hair is EXTREMELY straight and I can not believe the volume it’s given me. Love love love! You can put it on different settings of heat, which I love. This literally is a count to one and you’re done product.” —Angela
The barrel is also tapered so you can make a variety of curl sizes without having to switch tools or do anything complicated.
Promising review: “I’m one of those people that just sucks at curling my hair. I tried numerous times to curl my hair with a curling iron, but I can never get it right. I love this wand! I literally feel like a pro curling my hair and it took less than 10 minutes! It used to take forever with those darn curling irons. Never again! Seriously tho, this is a must have for all.” —MissEm
Promising review: “I rarely ever leave reviews, but THIS is amazing!! I have naturally frizzy hair that is also wavy and curly. I have a lot of breakage around the crown, and this stuff sleeks it back but doesn’t make it look greasy or crunchy! I suggest taking the mascara wand and wiping off the excess on the tube before applying so you don’t apply too much. When I apply too much, all I have to do is let it dry and then scratch my fingernails from front to back to break it up, and it still creates a sleek look without any crunchiness. I love this stuff so much, I need to get another for my car on those days that my mom hair is looking terrible.” —Adriana
The kit comes with a bottle of the color itself, a brush to apply it, and a bunch of gloves so your hands don’t get stained!
Promising review: “I absolutely loved this product. I like to change my hair up when I go to concerts and events, but don’t think I could sport pink hair every day of my life. I have a medium-toned blonde hair color and it worked perfectly. My roots are naturally darker than the rest of my hair, so I applied the dye all over. It gave me a very beautiful natural ombre look, where the top of my hair was just a tint of pink and as you went down it was more vibrant. It washed out over a week and the color still looked so cute the entire time it was fading. I’ve already bought this product again to use. The instructions are very easy to follow, and the color matching on the side of the box is very true to how it came out in my hair!” —S

Promising review: “This was the best nine dollars I’ve spent in a long time! The color is a perfect match to my hair. The hair is very long; I cut at least 12 inches off. It stays in place very well.” —SBonert
Promising review: “I left the largest rollers, the purple and gray ones, in for two hours to see how the curls would turn out. The results were great! The rollers are the perfect size and gave me the same look as my expensive digital perm. I’ve been getting digital perms for the last year to the tune of $200 every three to four months, so these rollers, at $12 a pack, are a steal.” —HoyaBlue
“It has two heat settings (plus a cool setting to set your style) AND ***ionic power*** to reduce frizz and add massive shine. And it has ceramic coating to reduce heat damage to your hair. I friggin’ love this brush. All you need to do is section your hair out, depending on how thick it is, and roll it under your hair like you would a regular round brush — but because it releases hot air, there’s NO NEED FOR A HAIR DRYER! Truly easy. And you get better results than with a flat iron, because you’re lifting and brushing out the hair rather than just pressing it flat.”—Maitland Quitmeyer
Promising review: “Stop searching and buy this! I purchased this purple shampoo on a whim after seeing it on a BuzzFeed article. THIS SHAMPOO, let me tell you, has pulled any and every unwanted orange color from my hair. The shampoo is PURPLE, almost black. It reeks to high heaven, but so do most toners and glazes a salon would put on, so it’s really not an issue to me. I use it once a week and leave it on for about five minutes while I shave in the shower, and it does its job. Within two weeks, it pulled all the orange brassiness from my hair, and it has left me with a wintery icy blonde that I never thought my hair could be. I love it so much and don’t know what state of pumpkin I would be without this shampoo.” —Lenna K.
Safety features include auto-off and auto temperature lock, which automatically shuts off the brush if not used for 60 minutes. Temperatures range from150°C (300°F) to 230°C (450°F) for any hair type.
Promising review: “Yaaaaaa’ll! Buy this thing. Seriously, add it to your cart right now and check out. RIGHT NOW! I have never liked straightening my hair. It took way too long (upwards of two hours) the flat iron would get caught in my hair, I’d burn my scalp trying to get too close, it just was a hassle. I’m so glad I tried this because what used to be a 2+ hour ordeal took only 45 minutes — and most of that was taking my hair down and detangling it from washing it! The actual straightening process was maybe 20 mins.” —Margaret
Simply place a sectioned off part of your hair behind the thickest prong, and it’ll automatically wrap around the iron. The rest of the hard work is done for you!
Promising review: “I love this curler beyond words. I am Asian with super-straight hair that can never keep curls. Seriously, after curling my hair with a curling iron AND using hair spray, my hair is basically straight again in two hours. This is the ONLY curling iron that I’ve used that actually works and is super easy to use. I actually tried using it without spraying my hair and the curls stayed intact until the next day.” —NYC Dog Mom
Pro tip: Detangle hair starting at the ends and work your way up so you get through it faster!
Promising review: “I’m always skeptical of products that claim to ‘glide through,’ but this brush actually works! I have very thick, kinky-coily hair, and this brush passes through my hair easily, both wet and dry. I’d recommend this product to anyone looking for a good detangling brush, and yes, I’m leaving my Denman brush for this one.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I had very LOW expectations for this. I accidentally cut my bangs too short the other night because my puppy distracted me mid-cut. I thought it would be funny to buy this and wear it one day. I got it for laughs mostly, not really expecting it to look normal. AND OMG I AM SHOCKED! First of all, it’s the exact same shade as my hair color. It was super easy to put on. The hair feels soft and realistic. I am so beyond amazed. So far, no one has been able to tell that the bangs are fake! I love them!” —JRod
Promising review: “I have long but very fine hair and I’ve always wished I could have a big voluminous bun. My first try I had it done in 15 seconds, so it’s great when you don’t have time to shower and you can just throw your hair up. The best part is that it somehow looks amazing even when you don’t do as good of a job rolling it in, like intended messy bun. I intend to use this a lot; it’s so easy and looks so pretty, highly recommend.” —Jamie
Promising review: “The bristles are a soft but sturdy silicone so there’s enough pressure to exfoliate and massage the scalp, but not so stiff that it would break hair shafts. Using this is a great way to get my scalp cleaner without damaging my nails. And it feels great too! A+ product, highly recommend!” —HeatherBree23
