Hair is never really just hair.

Our strands, whether curly, coily, straight, wavy, or any other texture, reflect who we are, our ancestry, and where we're from. It's like a crown we never take off, so making sure it's properly taken care of is paramount.

Since every texture, length, and style brings with it unique needs, for the 2022 Best Beauty Buys, we made sure to work with experts across the haircare industry who can speak to all hair types, to gather their recommendations for hair products worth buying right now. Then, we tested each and every product we're bringing to you to ensure they all work as promised.

From there, we were able to narrow down our list to the very best of the best. From shampoos and conditioners, to styling sprays and tools, we've got everything that will give you a professional finish right at home and on your budget.

So whether you're looking for color protection, something to make your curls pop, bond repair, or just want to slather your dry strands with a nourishing treatment product, you'll be fully covered.
