31 Amazing Hair Products That Really And Truly Work
A pack of practically unbreakable hair ties that were specially designed for hair that is long, and thick. These ties will stay in place throughout, won’t become slack, and won’t damage your hair.
Promising review: “First hair band I can wear all day without a headache. The hairstylist and colorist are amazed every time because of how thick my hair is, so this is a true blessing. Living where it can get to 120 degrees in the summer, I needed something to put my hair up with. It does not leave a mark. It does not pull my hair out. I can do twice or three times around depending if I want a loose pony or super tight. I was a little taken aback by the price, but would gladly pay it again because I like to have extra holders at home, at work, and in my car. If only they made them for blonde hair.” —Lyn D.

A highly coveted Wet Brush that has mostly 5-star reviews. This will gently untangle even the most tangled of hair…and you won’t have a splitting headache after!
Promising review: “Oh praise all the spiritual beings because I have finally found a hairbrush that seems to work on my child’s unruly hair without her screaming that I’m ripping her scalp off every time I go to brush her hair. I don’t know what happens to this child while she sleeps, but every morning it’s as if she’s been headbanging in the middle of a tornado and I have to brush through that mess. Even with detangler it was a challenge before, but now it goes much more smoothly. Could not be more pleased with it. I use this on my own hair too and if there are any knots, I don’t even feel when they are brushed out. Seriously, love it.” —Lissa K.

Promising review: “Love love love! I have tried so many products on my hair and this is the first one that I can say I am 100% happy with. My hair is extremely dry since I dyed it blonde. Nothing has help repair it until now!” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “I use this every time I blow dry my hair. Even with my thick hair I can have it completely dry in less than five minutes. Leaves the hair feeling smooth and soft. I even find that I don’t need to restyle my hair the next day even after sleeping on it.” —blackrose
A volume-boosting clarifying shampoo that you can use once in a while to get rid of all the gunk and product residue that is left behind after styling.
Promising review: “I bought this because of the low price but it is AMAZING! It smells heavenly, it clarifies my scalp thoroughly and definitely gets rid of build up. I use it once every two weeks. You HAVE to follow up with a very moisturizing deep conditioner, let it sit for a while then comb through your hair. It’s a new staple for me.” —Nicky C.

A pack of hair elastics with rubber inlay to give them that extra strong grip, and prevent them from sliding off throughout the day. These will stay all day!
Promising review: “I have long, straight hair that is very fine, and my hair slips out of EVERYTHING. I recently ran a 5K and a few hours later taught a Zumba fitness class — I didn’t have to readjust this hair tie even ONE TIME. Completely serious. These are, in a word, amazing.” —Sophie Austen
A Living Proof de-frizzing spray that will keep hair soft between washes, reduces more than 90% of frizzing, and it even provides protection from harmful UV rays.
It’s made with a five oil blend that mimics your hair’s natural oil, meaning your locks will feel soft and healthy rather than greasy. And it works on curly hair too! 🙌
Promising review: “First, you should know that my hair is naturally wavy and very frizzy. Secondly, I live in the tropics; here in south Florida we INVENTED frizz! I normally have a salon keratin treatment every couple of months to keep my hair smooth and shiny, but I’m badly overdue right now and my hair’s been a mess. Well…dang! This product is nothing short of amazing! Yes, after being outside in the humidity for a period of time, those frizzies do start popping up again (let’s be realistic!)… HOWEVER, all I need do is run the brush through my hair again to re-activate the product and it’s smooth sailing once again; re-applying is not necessary! I am LIVING PROOF that this is a revolutionary product. Ha Ha. I’ve since put off my salon keratin treatment again while I try more products from this game-changing line.” —JillinWPB
A John Frieda hot-air brush that manages to be a cross between a round brush and a hairdryer. Your hair routine will be cut down drastically, with the same results!
Just air dry your hair most of the way to achieve quicker results!
Promising review: “When I tried to style my at home with a regular blow dryer and round brush, I couldn’t do it like the my hairstylist did it; it came out flat and straight. This product is truly everything! It is lightweight, which makes it very easy to hold, the heat temperature is perfect, the bristles are soft — hair slides through, does not pull on the hair, no breakage at all. The feature that I LOVE is that it has a cool setting to let curls cool down before releasing them (no need to use hot rollers). This hot air brush is so great that I had to purchase one for my mom as soon as I was done using it. CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS HAIR TOOL.” —LoveMyYorkie

A canister of fan-favorite Basiste dry shampoo that will get rid of oily and dirty roots, and give your hair that lush texture and silky feel that you’ve always craved.
Promising review: “I spent my whole life having to wash my hair EVERY day. I wouldn’t leave the house without shampooing. Even if my hair was just washed the night before, it is so thin and fine that I would wake up with it flat and plastered against my head. With this product, I can finally leave the house without shampooing and often feel like my hair looks better and fuller then if I washed and styled it. I’ve tried a few other brands and didn’t get the same results. Definitely worth it for me.” —D. Foley

It’s made with Hawaiian-sourced black lava sea salt, coconut oil, and amino acids to add just the right amount of texture while protecting your hair from the elements.

A scalp brush to give yourself that amazing salon scalp massage in the comfort of your home
Not only does it feel great, but it also helps maintain the health of your scalp.
Promising review: “I love this massager. My scalp has never been so clean or felt so good. I used this for the first time a few days ago and my scalp still feels good and is flake-free. I’d definitely recommend this. Feels just as good as going to the salon.” —T. Lee-Quigley

- A five-in-one curling iron and wand set with changeable ends to make those curls you’ve always super easy to achieve
It has nine temperature settings so you can ensure you get curls that last without heat damaging your hair.
Promising review: “This product has been so great! My hair is fine and straight and has held a weak curl with other curling irons and wands. The first time I used this my hair didn’t have any product on it, and it still made absolutely stunning curls that lasted for two or three days! I have always had to use tons of product to get any curl, but with this, the curls are soft and bouncy, full of volume for days. I’ve used it on my daughter’s hair, which is to her waist, and it did not disappoint! We’ve never been able to get much curl in her hair before. We’ve used the lower settings (about 270 degrees), and it works great. I wish I had bought this years before! Worth every penny; it has replaced every other curling iron we owned and it all stores in a compact little bag.” —Mic

A boar-bristle teasing brush that will make even hair brushing an enjoyable experience, and give you amazing volume.
Promising review: “If I could, I would give this little brush 10 STARS!!! I typically used a teasing comb which did not really give me very big volume for my fine hair. I used this little brush and wow! It focuses on each hair strand, creating mega volume and big hair! I love big hair! Oh yeah, and any teased area can easily be combed through if needed.” —GrungeGirl314

- An Aquis microfiber cloth that dries your hair quickly without frizzing it out, as a normal towel would
Say hello to your new post-shower hair wrap.

An Invisibobble spiral hair tie that users swear that would keep your hair from getting creased and mussed in sleep.
If you find that it gets stretched out after repeated use, just submerge it in warm-to-hot water!
Promising review: “I have super long, thick hair that is more on the straight-wavy side of the hair spectrum. I would go through probably 10 regular hair elastics before finding these, but I’ve been using them for about a month now and I haven’t broken (or lost) one yet. They have never once pulled my hair out, they don’t leave an indentation ring in your ponytail, and I NEVER have to readjust my pony all day. They are truly the answer to all of my hair-related prayers!! The best part is that they shrink back to original size after about three days.” —Leannaagahi

A cleansing conditioner that is both a conditioner and shampoo, and will remove gunk and dirt from your hair, and leave it moisturized.

If you’re not a mayo fan, don’t worry — this one actually smells like vanilla and macadamia nuts.
Promising review: “I have dead hair from bleaching it so much, and I was a bit skeptical if this would work. But oh my god it makes my hair softer than a corgi’s bottom. And it smells really good too. Will definitely restock when I run out!” —Hanyoinlove

- An HSI ionic straightener that is super cheap, but works as well as the high-end types and has thousands of five-star reviews
It glides over your hair, smoothing and straightening while adding shine, thanks to sensors that regular the temperature so you’re not doing any damage.
Promising review: “I’m actually really impressed with this product, especially for the price. I have really thick, curly hair that’s hard to manage, and I live in Florida, so the humidity and heat has my hair curly again within a couple hours of straightening it. I ordered this straightener because the reviews were so good and I’m glad I did it. The product came exactly when it was supposed to and I immediately tried it out. My hair is pin straight and it’s been that way for about 10 hours. Even with the heat and humidity, the thermal spray it came with is keeping the frizz and curls away and it still looks awesome. I would definitely buy this straightener again.” —Saramae49

A powder and brush combo that will hide your ingrown roots, and give your hair an appearance of fullness, and lasts until your next wash
Promising review: “I didn’t think something that looked like eyeshadow would do much. But it works beautifully! I can wear my hair back and feel confident that my hair looks naturally dark through and through. The best part (besides that it really works)? It stays on! I have been to the pool and come home with my hair still covered. I can only wash my hair about every other day. The roots are covered from the time I initially out on the product until I wash it out with ease with regular shampoo in the shower. Love this stuff!” —Dkl1992

A jar of forming hair cream that will stay in place without looking greasy or feeling dry
Promising review: “Finally, some hair cream I can tolerate. I can’t tell you how many various different creams, gels, pastes, and pomades I’ve went through to find a hair product that doesn’t make me look like I either just got out of a pool or Donald Trump on a windy day. Essentially, it’s been either a choice between firm yet wet-looking gels or natural-looking pastes that have no hold. Fortunately, this cream does both incredibly well. Not only is it rather matte-looking, but it holds my hair so unyieldingly that Thor would have a hard time messing it up. Needless to say, this may be the first hair product I may actually keep using.” —Niko Jordan

A 42-pack of curling rods that you can use for all hair types wet or dry to give your hair that extra curl
Promising review: “These are so easy to use and made my hair look amazing! My hair will not hold a curl to save its life, but I put these on in the morning, worked from home all day, then took them out and had bouncy, soft waves all night. I haven’t tried sleeping in them yet but they stay in so securely, I am sure it won’t be a problem. Such a great alternate to heat styling.” —Bethany J
A silk protein and neem oil–infused mist that will revive your hair and refresh your curls when its not time for a wash yet.

25. A tourmaline adjustable waver hot tool that creates every hairstyle you can think of, from perfect finger waves to artistically mussed hair
Promising review: “Yes! Finally… a no-skill-required remedy for my curl/wave envy. I’ve tried it all… the hot roller curls don’t last and take forever, the overnight rollers keep me from resting comfortably, the wet braids looked terrible, the wet bun caused a lot of breakage and still looked dumb, the curling iron was always awkward for me and the ‘curls’ wouldn’t last. All of my trials and errors eventually led me to this product. I did half my hair on my first run in about 1.5 mins. They are set…not coming undone even with brushing. I’m so excited to finally be able to pull off this hairstyle. No regrets! These waves stood strong through an eight-hour work shift, plus the snowy highway winds from getting a flat tire on the way to work. BOOM! Miracle.” —Vanessa
A weightless volumizing powder that will instantly transform your limp hair to thick and lush.
Promising review: “This powder does INCREDIBLE things for my limp, thin, long hair. My hair stylist recommended it, and I love how it gives the top of my head body. Although it comes out super fast, I have found that sprinkling it in my hand first is the perfect way not to over-apply. I try to get three days out of my hair before I wash and I apply on the second day. On the third day, my hair is full of body from the previous day’s application and I just can’t say enough good things about this product!” —Kristen B.

- A strengthening *re-bonding* treatment that works wonders for damaged hair, especially colored hair and brings them back to life, and glossy
Promising review: “MAGIC!!!! I swear this stuff is made from unicorns. I was doubtful, given that I have tried the gamut of hair conditioning treatments (yes, yes, I know this is NOT a conditioner, but a bonder) and all I have to say is WOWZA! After some really harsh processing (got my hair from dark dark brown to very very blonde so I could add funky colors (currently pink), my hair more closely resembled hay than it did actual hair and as the weeks went on, the breakage started getting worse. I tried this at my last feeble attempt to salvage my locks after a friend recommended it and I am BLOWN AWAY by the results! It really does work. I won’t lie and tell you my hair is back to it’s normal state, but it is SIGNIFICANTLY improved. It is smoother, softer, and even has some of the weight back! This was just after one application (I left it in for an hour as the website suggested for my level of damage). I can’t wait to see if it gets better with the next application. I am definitely sold.” —shel.b.phd
A deeply moisturizing hair mask that contains argan oil and green tea, and will revive your hair. Protein-rich ingredients like oat, quinoa, and keratin will heal damaged hair.
Promising review: “This product is AMAZING! It’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever purchased on Amazon. I am mixed black and white and I’ve colored my hair a million times. My ends are ALWAYS dry, even after a haircut. I would probably have to cut all of my hair off in order for it to be healthy. After using this my hair is smoother than ever. You can’t even tell that my hair was damaged. I will purchase this product again!” —Tierra Gray

A Denman nylon bristle brush that will make detangling easier without the tears of frustration
Promising review: “I absolutely love the brush. I have been relaxer-free for two years and I often wondered about the hype of the Denman. Now, my only complaint is that I waited way too long! My 4B hair could have benefited from this brush a long time ago. I actually look forward to doing my hair, because it makes detangling a breeze. The Denman Brush is, by far, one of the only products (I literally have a entire beauty supply store in my house) that I’ve tried as a natural that lives up to its reputation. Happy brushing!!!” —BCFNP1
And a satin pillowcase that prevents hair breakage, damage, and greatly cuts down frizzing, compared to normal pillowcases of cotton.
Promising review: “I decided to purchase this pillowcase after noticing hair breakage from one too many bleach jobs. I really wasn’t expecting a miracle, but this product has tremendously reduced the breakage! I love the zipper closure. It’s a sturdy zipper and covered with satin. Prevents my pillow from slipping out. It’s easy to toss in the washer and has withstood many washes! I now swear by satin pillowcases and will be ordering more from this brand!” —Nikki D.
