I don’t know when it was decided that adults had everything figured out. I mean, I still don’t know what to fill in for my W-2. Similarly, I never have a clue on what to buy for my hair, unless I’m at a salon and a stylist is giving me the exact link for a product. But, by some miracle, I spotted a hair care guide in the last place I’d think to look: Amazon. As a shopping editor, I’m online looking for deals and customer-loved items 24/7, so I pay a little bit more attention to commerce hubs than most normal people would. Because of this, I spotted an easy-to-miss section on the retailer’s beauty page.
As you scroll down past the callouts for Indie Beauty products and the section filled with customer-loved items, you see a rainbow advertisement for hair type guides. I thought, “This is too good to be true,” as I clicked on the “relaxed” section. But low and behold, what I found was seriously impressive. The page has everything from leave-in conditioners to repairing serums, all specific to that one hair type. Plus, the majority of items have higher than a 4.5-star customer rating, so you know that real people back the products up.
There are four total hair sections to shop from: relaxed, wavy, coily, and curly. Each of these has hundreds of beloved beauty items to try out, and the majority are less than $10. This is the type of guide that can help you transform dry and damaged hair to the lush locks you have envied for so long when you spot it on tv or in line at the grocery store.
Below, shop out some of the best-rated hair products specific for your hair type.
