The 10 Holy-Grail Products We Count On For Good Hair Days

From oils to shampoos to moisturizing masks.

Written by NYLON Editors

Finding just the right hair care routine for you is like perfecting a delicate soufflé recipe. It takes time, patience, and practice. But just like when you combine any set of ingredients, there can be uncertainty in the ultimate results. Between in-shower treatments, stylers, and tools, it can be hard to strike the balance between doing too much and too little. Where the former can cause heat damage, over-washing, or limp hair heavy with products, the latter can leave your hair brittle and dry, frizz-prone, or create scalp irritation. It can be a lot of trial and error before you land on a routine that consistently delivers you the hair of your dreams and good vibes that come with it. After all, hair has always been about more than vanity — it’s inherently connected to identity and individuality, as well as confidence and mood. As Phoebe Waller-Bridge says in Fleabag, “Hair. Is. Everything.”

Below, are the products that our NYLON editors and writers use to giving us good hair days all year long. From game-changing stylers and essential shampoos to the most efficient tools, there’s something on our list that will fit all hair type and needs.
