We at Mane Addicts are lucky with the number of hair care and beauty products we have access to. We’re constantly being sent products to try, and because of that, we wanted to share which ones are actually worth trying yourself, which we like to call our VIPs (Very Important Products). Each month, we share the top hair, beauty, and skin products we tried so you know what you should be stocking up on. Scroll below to discover our editors’ product picks for October!

Hannah Cassidy, Editorial Director

Manta Hair Hairbrush

$30 at Amazon.com

“Well friends, I took the plunge and got extensions. The first order of business was to swap out my go-to brush with something that could gently navigate my new keratin tips to avoid breakage or stress on my scalp. Named for its likeness to a manta ray and designed by a hair pro, this flexible brush lays in the palm of your hand (kind of like a PopSocket) and effortlessly detangles. And the scalp massage? Heavenly.”

Oribe Gold Lust Oil

$57 at Sephora.com

“Following the advice of my stylist Rachel Duhame, who recommended adding this oil into my routine, this divinely scented formula from Oribe instantly hydrates my perpetually dry extensions. It’s super lightweight, tames frizz, and leaves a healthy-looking shine. I just warm a few pumps in my hands and work through my hair twice a day, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends.”

Klur Unseasonal Kind Lipid Replenishment Oil

$90 at Klur.co

“Okay, this technically isn’t a hair product, but hear me out. As a beauty editor, I’ve tried countless oils hoping to find the unicorn that wouldn’t break me out and instead leave me with the healthy glow I’m pining after. This is my unicorn. It’s packed with lipids (which help protect your skin’s barrier) and supported by a cocktail of squalene, coQ10, and vitamins C and E. I pat it over my moisturized skin morning (before SPF, obvi) and night, and any excess gets smoothed through my strands and into my cuticles. Though it may seem like an investment up front, the bottle will last you for months.”

Authentic Beauty Concept Airy Texture Spray

$25 at Amazon.com

“I live for a good texture spray and Authentic Beauty Concept’s version does not disappoint. Vegan and silicone-free, this spray gives my hair a little boost in volume, flexible texture, and doubles as a heat protectant. None of that sticky, tacky feeling that often accompanies texturizing products. Trust me—your arsenal needs this spray.”

Contently California After All! Scalp Soothing Care Treatment

$18 at Amazon.com

“With extensions (or any tightly braided style), your scalp can feel irritated and itchy. I keep this spray on hand with me at all times to keep my scalp feeling comfortable. It balances your scalp’s pH level naturally, and the quick-drying formula contains a cooling menthol for immediate relief without any goopy mess. Plus, the nozzle attachment allows you to get up close to the spots that need it most.”

LeaLuo Aim High Volume Shampoo

$23 at MyLeaLuo.com

“My hair is flat with a capital F-L-A-T, especially at my roots. While my mid-lengths and ends have some volume, the crown of my head does not. So I was stoked with LeaLuo sent me their volumizing shampoo. After one wash, I noticed a major boost to my hair’s volume thanks to the shampoo’s vegetable proteins. The sudser even has a pearlescent sheen, which makes washing my hair all the more fun.”

Philip B Everyday Beautiful Shampoo

$48 at Dermstore.com

“In my 29 years on this earth, I have yet to try a clarifying shampoo. For some reason, they really intimidate me. But when Philip B reached out about their new Everyday Beautiful Shampoo, I felt called to give this one a try. And I’m so glad I did. I put it to the test after not washing my hair for five days—the 18 essential oils, witch hazel water, bergamot extract, and vitamin E worked their magic to bring my unwashed strands back to life. I even noticed that my hair didn’t get as greasy as it normally does in the days after washing it.”

Authentic Beauty Concept Glow Touch

$25 at Amazon.com

“Authentic Beauty Concept has quickly become one of my favorite vegan hair care brands over the last few years. Their products always leave my hair better than ever after using them. The same goes for their Glow Touch finishing spray. I’m a sucker for a product that will make my hair look put together, even if it’s in a messy bun—and this spray does just that. Designed to give your hair an extra bit of shine and softness after you’re done styling it, it elevates my go-to messy bun and bedhead styles.”

Hairitage Day Two Hair Refresher

$8.94 at Walmart.com

“These past few weeks, I haven’t left my house too often, which means I’m less inclined to wash my hair. So when I do need to leave the house and don’t want to wash my strands, I reach for the Hairitage Day Two Hair Refresher. A blend of coconut oil, hibiscus flower, and camelina oil add moisture and shine to my dehydrated strands while also leaving them smelling as if they were freshly washed.”

Hairstory Hair Oil

$35 at Hairstory.com

“I’ve been trying hard to incorporate a hair oil into my hair care routine more often as I have a history of avoiding the product. My hair tends to be fairly oily and I’ve only ever used hair oils that exacerbated the issue. That is until I tried Hairstory’s Hair Oil. Its lightweight blend of eight essential oils keeps my hair frizz-free and nourished while quenching my dry ends.”

OUAI Medium Hair Mask

$38 at Sephora.com

“This is by far the most hydrating mask I’ve ever used. I recently went red so that meant a lot of bleach on my hair and this mask instantly delivers moisture without making my hair feel greasy. Not only is the texture amazing but it smells incredible, too.”

Baby Tress Edge Styler Brush

$15 at BabyTress.com

“This is my favorite detail brush to use to really slick down any flyaways when I have a super snatched look I’m trying to achieve. The bristles are extremely dense, giving you the smoothest finish. It also has a pointed rat tail-like end making it super easy to part your hair. I live in a snatched bun so this is absolutely a must-have tool for me.”

Kristin Ess Copper Gloss

$15 at Target.com

“There’s a reason why this product went so viral on TikTok. Since going red, I’ve been looking for products to maintain my vibrancy and color between salon visits. This instantly gives a boost of pigment and leaves my hair looking extremely shiny.”

OUAI Scalp and Body Scrub

$38 at Sephora.com

“This is by far the best scalp scrub I’ve ever used. I feel like most scalp scrubs leave my hair feeling like I just rolled around in sand. This scrub lathers extremely well and washes out very easily. The scent is amazing and I love that it doubles as a body scrub.”

Briogeo Scalp Revival Treatment Serum

$32 at Sephora.com

“This is the first scalp serum I’ve ever used and I absolutely love it for my deep clean wash days. I love how refreshing it feels and how easy it is to work into my scalp and hair. It’s definitely become my favorite product as it’s gotten colder and relieves any itchiness due to dry skin.”

Pattern Hydrating Hair Mist

$18 at Ulta.com

“With naturally dry curly hair, it’s vital to have a moisturizing product that you can use daily. This hydrating mist is the perfect milky consistency with a smooth lightweight finish. It smells amazing and doesn’t create product buildup. My only con is that the product often gets stuck in the spray nozzle that it comes in so it’s best to transfer it to a different bottle. Besides that, this is definitely a holy grail item for anyone with curly hair.”

Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In Detangler

$11.49 at Walgreens.com

“I love that this product can be used as a detangler and leave-in conditioner. I’ve incorporated this product into my wash day routine. After cleansing and conditioning, I use it to detangle and moisturize my hair before styling. I like that it’s very lightweight but super hydrating to my strands.”

Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream

$74 at Sephora.com

“After finishing my last retinol cream, I upgraded to Drunk Elephant’s cream. I have been using it consistently for the last two weeks. I love integrating this product with my facial oil at night. Only a pea-size is needed, so a little goes a long way. I am getting ahead of the signs of aging before they happen!”

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops

$34 at Sephora.com

“I am in love with serums so I’m constantly adding new ones to my already-cramped bathroom cabinet. These dew drops really do take the cake. I live for an effortless glowy face and this product makes that happen. The jelly consistency feels great on my skin and has a brightening effect. If you’re in love with the off-duty model dewy look, I highly recommend it.”

SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Protein-Strong Treatment

$12.49 at Ulta.com

“I’ve started to use a protein treatment once a month to keep my hair strong and split ends at bay. I’m a fan of SheaMoisture in general and now this product, too. It’s hydrating and the perfect pick-me-up for dry hair. I love how affordable this treatment mask is as well.”
