Since the dawn of modern time, women have been willing to put anything in their long locks to create strong, silky soft, shiny hair. Eggs? Check. Yogurt? Check. Honey? Double check. All those weird and random things that we’ve been told to try, believe me, we’ve tried them all. Now, it’s 2021, and there’s no reason we shouldn’t be able to find a few hair products that are sure to leave your mane looking and feeling incredibly silky soft and glisteningly shiny. Here’s 8 hair products for you to try!
Olaplex is this fantastic brand of hair products that are known to be a little pricey, but totally worth it. Many celebrities swear by this brand, including the likes of Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner themselves. Recently, Olaplex extended their line of products by adding No. 0, an intensive bond building treatment, that is meant to give hair a bit of a moisture and repair boost in-between salon visits. It was designed just last year, as part of the brand’s new direction towards at-home care, which was kickstarted after the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
You can order all parts of the Olaplex collection from Sephora! This particular treatment, No. 0, retails for $28.00.
2. Coco and Eve
Coco and Eve has been dominating the hair game since their “Like A Virgin” hair masque found viral success on social media, especially Instagram. Photos of so many people, with all different hair types, starting popping up, showing the before and after using the hair masque. Every single one of them had noticeable, and I mean really noticeable differences. Hair appeared incredibly soft and silky in the after photos as opposed to the before photos. The before photos showed flyaways and split ends and untamed hair, and almost none of that was seen after they used “Like A Virgin.”
You can order Coco and Eve’s “Like A Virgin” directly from their website for $39.90!
Monat is yet another celebrity-approved brand of hair products that are known for their ability to extensively rejuvenate very dry, damaged, and frizzy hair, and encourage fuller, stronger growth. Monat relies on four key ingredients: Rejuveniqe, Procataline, Capixyl, and Crodasorb. If all of these sound made up, it’s because they are. Monat has perfected their very own blends of natural oils and ingredients to make up their four key ingredients, which they named accordingly based on what they contain. Monat really went the extra mile in their scientific research and developed a product that is made with natural blends that are not only great for your hair, but for the environment too.
You can order the Replenish Masque directly from Monat for the retail price of $50.
4. Bondi Boost
Bondi Boost is a hair product line that has various focuses. Whether you’re looking for hair growth, anti dandruff, dry & damaged repair, blonde care, or curl care, Bondi Boost has a line of products to help you achieve your hair goals. The most popular line is the hair growth line, because many have found it to speed up the grueling process of hair growth, as well as promote stronger, healthier hair directly from the root, reducing the amount of split ends and breakage. Bondi Boost products are made in Australia, completely of natural ingredients and none of the harmful stuff you usually see on common hair product labels.
You can order the Growth Miracle Mask from Bondi Boost’s website for $27.99, or check out their bundles to get more and save more all at the same time!
For those of you who want something simple and easy to add to your routine, you might think about trying IGK’s Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm. To use, simply apply to wet or dry hair, work through with your fingers, and voila! You’ve added a lightweight, smooth and sweet-smelling leave-in conditioner to your precious locks. The product is geared towards individuals with all hair types, from thin and straight to thick and curly, Mistress should be able to give your stressed locks a definite chill pill.
You can order a 5 oz. bottle for $29.00 from Ulta Beauty!
Verb hair care is a brand of hair products that is actually quite similar to Bondi Boost, in that they specialize in various different hair goals. They boast their products as being gluten free, paraben free, vegan, and having no harmful sulfates, and they do not test on animals. Thus, with all of this in mind, you can feel confident about the products you are using. Their most popular product is called the “Ghost Oil” because of the way it simply seeps deep into your hair without a trace. Almost 700 reviewers give the Ghost Oil 4.9 out of 5 stars, and if that doesn’t convince you to try it, I don’t know what will!
You can order the Ghost Oil directly from Verb for $18.00!
7. Maple Holistics
Maple Holistics is another one of the brands on this list that is devoted to being environmentally friendly. In doing so, they created a groundbreaking conditioner that is made with 18 amino acids found in silk, giving it the name Silk18. This is something different from the other products you’d find on the shelf which often contain your average keratin and biotin proteins and nothing more. Many people who have curly hair also benefit from using Silk18, as it helps to remove flyaways and frizz to keep curls looking volumized yet healthy.
This is one of the most affordable hair products on the list, and can be found on the Maple Holistics website for just $16.75 for a 16 oz. bottle.
8. Bomba Curls
Bomba Curls was created by Afro-Dominicana Lulu Corder, who was determined to formulate a product that would not only treat curly hair, but protect it as well. While their products are geared towards curly locks, any hair type would benefit from their Dominican Forbidden Hair Oil. This forbidden blend is the first of its kind, and includes coffee seed oil, castor oil, black cumin seed oil, and rosemary extract. The ingredient list is literally only six items long, so if you are desperately trying to find the purest hair products, Bomba Curls is the place for you!
You can order Bombas’ products right from their website! The Dominican Forbidden Hair Oil retails for $22!
