The Best Hair Products We Tried This Month, Hands Down
If you're admittedly obsessed with your hair, you've stumbled upon the right place. As beauty editors, it's our downright obligation to share with you the latest and greatest in haircare products. Like the rest of the world, we're on a mission to achieve the healthiest hair possible. Our eyes are always peeled for products that will deliver on what they say they're going to do (especially on the days we really need it). To avoid bad hair days at all costs, we test and talk about hair pretty much all the time.
With winter officially here, we have to take the power back from wind and rain and let our hair flourish in it. Even if you're not into hashtags, who doesn't want to be #HairGoals? Ahead are the best hair products we tried in June that have our hair looking and feeling like goals.
"I'm always a little wary of curl-specific products since my 2b waves are very finicky (I am always subject to tighter curls underneath, with a layer of undefined, frizz-prone S-waves on top). But I had high hopes for Sachajuan's new curl range since I'm such a fan of the brand's other offerings (and sleek packaging to boot). Sure enough, I'm hooked: The rinse-out curl treatment, in particular, leaves my waves super silky and soft, and it actually makes my hair look somewhat uniform for a change!" — Victoria Hoff, managing editor, The/Thirty
"I'm always looking for a few very specific things when it comes to hair products. First, will it weight my hair down? I have super-fine strands, and I'm constantly plagued by really great, nourishing products that also make my hair fall flat. Then, will it keep my curly hair properly moisturised? Yes, I know, this is kind of a catch-22 when it comes to formulation. How can something be both light and hydrating? Well, Playa figured it out, folks. The practically weightless natural blend of coconut, apricot, and sunflower restores moisture to my dry curls without sacrificing any of the lift. It deeply penetrates, strengthens damaged strands, and offers a summery scent with notes of coconut, sandalwood, and orange blossom." — Hallie Gould, senior editor
"Because of my thin, dry curls, my hair is super prone to breakage. I've already outfitted my entire bed with Slip's silk products (the eye mask and pillowcase, to start) and now moved on to its new silk scrunchies. The high-grade silk allows your hair to slip easily in and out of the scrunchie, never causing ridges, pulling, breaking, or snapping. It's a blessing, to say the least." — Hallie
"Diptyque's new hair scent not only makes me smell ever so subtly like a romantic European summer night (that's thanks to its combination of citrusy, nautical, woodsy notes), but it's also made with camellia seed oil and less alcohol, so your hair stays nourished. If you're into hair scents (and even if you're not), you need this." — Amanda
"This hair serum is everything I've ever wished for in a daily styling product. It smoothes, detangles, softens, and even imparts a hint of shine. Plus, it's not too heavy for my fine hair and leaves almost zero residue behind. I'm obsessed. I comb it through my ends almost every day before heading out the door to make my hair feel more manageable (without the use of damaging hot tools!). The result is basically my hair but better." — Kaitlyn
"I can't even begin to describe how heavenly my scalp felt when I lathered on this pimento-infused shampoo. Pimento is known to stimulate hair growth and feels soothing to the scalp. I've been loving how revitalised my hair feels and looks after spoiling it with this stuff. If you're dealing with breakage from overusing hot tools (raises hand), I highly recommend you incorporate some of this brand's pimento-based products."
