Top row, from left to right:

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment ($6 at drugstores): One of the most versatile drugstore hair treatments we've ever seen, Garnier's Sleek Oil Treatment is a lightweight hair oil, formulated with good-for-you Moroccan Argan Oil, that can be used in the shower (mix a few drops in with your conditioner), on wet hair (pre-styling), or even on dry hair (to tame frizz). The lightweight product helps soften your locks, reduces frizz, and moisturize.

Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo ($5 at drugstores): One of Dove's most exciting hair launches this year, the Nourishing Oil Care shampoo does wonders to control frizz and smooth hair roughness. It's infused with nutritious almond and mineral oils that help nourish your locks—and customers are raving about the results!

Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Light Moisture Curl Set ($54 at Carol's Daughter): Carol's Daughter's Hair Milk has been a must-have for lots of curly-haired girls since its launch a few years ago—and this year, the company's reformulated the classic! Want defined curls that are frizz-free? Try this regimen. We can't get enough of the whole set—three full-size 8+ oz. products.

L'Oreal EverStyle Smooth & Shine Creme ($7 at Ulta): This alcohol-free and paraben-free smoothing cream is like a godsend for dry, flyaway hair. All you need is a dime-sized amount for 48-hour frizz control. The formula conditions and seals your hair follicles for a sleek-ifying effect.

Bottom row, from left to right:

Umberto Beverly Hills Volume Boosting Foam ($9 at Target): Have you tried the Umberto Beverly Hills line at Target? We're kind of obsessed with it. If you have thin, fine, or flat hair and want to kick up your volume, check out Umberto's new Volume Boosting Foam—a lightweight mousse-y treatment that contains balm mint and extracts of lemongrass for a thickening and body-boosting effect. Plus, it adds shine!

Black 15in1 Twice a Week Shampoo and Conditioner (from $7.50 at Black 15in1): When we first started hearing about Black 15in1 products a couple of years ago—and how celebrity stylists and A-list beauty editors were obsessed with the line—we knew we had to try the company's signature miracle treatment. And despite the just-this-side-of-ordinary packaging (and, um, name), we found it amazing. This year, Black 15in1 launched its twice-weekly shampoos and conditioners—and we're totally hooked! The formulas are infused with hair-repairing goodies such as Panthenol B5, amino acids, sunflower seed extract, and argan oil—for shininess, moisturizing, UV protection, and nourishing.

Salon Grafix Conditioning Cleanser ($8 at drugstores): If you're dying to try this year's new conditioning cleansers but don't feel like shelling out $30 a bottle, we heartily recommend springing $8 for Salon Grafix's formula—a creamy, gentle conditioning cleanser that won't strip your hair of its natural oils. It doesn't lather, is pH balanced to promote scalp health, and will leave you hair clean, shiny, and conditioned—all in one step.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray (from $19.50 at Oribe): This spray-on product falls somewhere in between a dry shampoo, a texturizer, a volumizer, and a hairspray. The super-fine mist lifts and holds just-so, and Oribe's patented polymers absorb any excess oil—so your hairstyle can last for days. If you, like us, want the hold of hairspray without the glue-y mess, try this texturizing spray.
