Tailor-Made Treatments

This in-salon treatment boasts a customizable "dose" that can be tailored to your specific hair needs. A stylist assesses your hair type and from there, chooses one of four treatments bases, combining it with one of four intensifying boosts. The theory is that someone with color-treated hair might also be dealing with dryness, or someone suffering from thin hair might also want to increase shine — the mix-and-match approach lets the stylist tackle a multitude of concerns. After our treatment cocktail of strength and shine, we definitely noticed our hair looked bouncier, softer, and shinier, and was loads more manageable. Not too shabby for $25!

Miracle Grow

We had our doubts when we saw this so-called miracle hair-growth pill, but after hearing myriad endorsements from celebrity stylists and top models alike, we had to give it a shot. It features a marine-based complex made up of multiple types of deep sea fish, including cod, shark(!), and English whiting. It thankfully doesn't taste too fishy and, after 3 months of using it, we swear our hair has been growing faster and looking thicker. We've definitely been getting a ton of compliments on our locks lately!

The Gray Hair "Cure"

A pill that gets rid of gray hair? Sounds too good to be true, right? Apparently not, as a company called Rise-N-Shine is now marketing a supplement they claim will not only prevent future gray hairs, but will eliminate the ones you already have. The pills contain catalase, an enzyme that's naturally found in our bodies. Catalase breaks down the body's natural production of hydrogen peroxide, which bleaches our hair from the inside out. As we get older, catalase production levels go down, causing hydrogen peroxide levels to spike, which results in silver strands. We feel like this is one of those products you have to keep taking in order for it to be effective — a pain in the butt for sure, but if you're desperate to get rid of gray, then this could be your cure.

Botox For Hair

There's definite buzz around this new system, which has been dubbed "Botox for hair," thanks to its thickening properties. The at-home mask and in-salon treatment both feature Intra-Cylane, a molecule that identifies and attaches itself to areas of damaged keratin, then goes to work plugging and sealing these gaps. The end result is full, soft, velvety hair that lasts up to 10 washes.

Hair-Loss Antidote

Follicularly-challenged people of the world, rejoice! The FDA recently approved this odd-looking gadget to treat hair loss. It uses laser energy to stimulate your scalp and promote hair growth. After 12 weeks of use, you'll purportedly see thicker, stronger hair. Science-fiction? Maybe, but we've heard of people doing weirder things in an effort to combat thinning hair. Hair in a can anyone?
