A whipped leave-in conditioner formulated with coconut water to smooth the outer cuticle of your hair for shine, shine, and more shine — and no frizz.
A gentle edge brush with a comb on one side and a boar bristle brush on the other to shape and smooth your edges for a gorgeous finish.
A L’Oreal blowout priming spray that’ll cut down your drying time while protecting your hair from heat damage (because your arms don’t need a whole workout when you’re trying to get ready), all while achieving salon-quality softness.
A canister of Batiste dry shampoo so your third day hair (or fifth day hair) can look as good as when it’s freshly washed and styled. *Plus* it adds a boost of volume.

A curl-activating cream with shea butter and coconut oil to smooth and define your natural curl pattern so your hair won’t be frizzy (and you won’t feel frazzled).
A vented paddle brush to make giving yourself a blowout with a hair dryer and a brush less intimidating (the vents let the hot air through, drying your hair as you comb through it — magic!).
A semi-permanent L’Oréal hair color that’ll convince people you shelled out the big bucks for pastel hair at the salon — but without the expense or commitment.
L’Oreal’s Magic Root Coverup spray to easily *and* flawlessly hide that inch of grown-in roots — with no gross residue or stickiness. And it lasts until your next shampoo!
A curl butter to soften, hydrate, and strengthen hair, while saying “bye-bye” to dry frizz. Just apply and style as you desire, and the blend of mango & shea butters will put in the effort.
A borderline-magical Invisibobble spiral hair tie for anyone sick and tired of waking up with a big ole dent in their hair. Creases be gone!

An overnight sleeping mask that’ll help you wake up to the best hair day ever. Just pop on the mask (it comes in a handy cap to keep everything neat), hit the hay, and wake up to totally hydrated and restored hair.
A set of foam curling rods so an amazing head of twists and curls is only one sleep away. Wrap your hair around the outside, twist the flexible rod into a loop, c-, or s-shape and then… go to bed!
A pack of incredibly durable hair elastics specially designed for thick hair. We’re talking no tugging, no slipping, and no stretching out. 🙌

A travel size of Wonder Curl’s Get Set Jelly with aloe leaf juice and pro-vitamin B5 to define curls and coils and protect them from humidity, so they stay fresh and defined all day (and for days after).
And this one is under *$12*, but it’s too good a deal not to include: A rose gold one-inch Conair curling iron with 30 heat settings (up to 400°), a ~turbo heat~ setting (which raises the temperature 27° for hard-to-set areas), and a ceramic barrel for reduced frizz.
