Best DIY Beauty Supplies

It’s our 20th annual Beauty Supply Awards! We tested hundreds of brand-new products (tough job, we know!) to find the following gems that have the science to really make a difference. Want more winning beauty products? Here are our top skincare picks for your body, top skincare picks for your for face, best nail products, and best makeup.

Everything in this year’s annual Beauty Awards was vetted by our team of three beauty editors. We’ll try any hair product once to see if it lives up to its claims, and the list below includes our absolute favorite products from the past year. The TRESemmé hairspray? It releases a superfine formula that leaves strands touchably soft and never crunchy. And don’t get us started on the Living Proof defrizzer; each of us could (and would) write a love song about how it tamed even the fuzziest of hair days when humidity was through the roof. Basically, if we were being sent to a desert island, these would be the must-have haircare products we’d smuggle with us.


Clairol Nice’n Easy Color Care

Color and condition at home with less of a risk of irritation thanks to the use of the brand’s new proprietary allergy-friendly formula.

Love Beauty and Planet Radical Refresher Uplifting Dry Shampoo

Infused with citrus peel, this dry shampoo sops up oil and leaves hair smelling fresh.

Color Wow Dream Coat for Curly Hair

This spray (use it on wet hair) coats individual strands, creating a shield that keeps curls bouncy no matter the weather.


Truth be told, you don’t need to break the bank for a healthy, shiny mane. While we’re all for the occasional so-worth-it splurge, there are actually a ton of drugstore hair products chock-full of ingredients that benefit your locks just as much as (if not more than) pricier salon versions. Don’t believe us? Many of the affordable beauty buys below have major cult followings on Amazon, with thousands of glowing reviews. We’ve rounded up an arsenal of hero products to fix all your hair woes—from breakage to frizz to dryness—stat.
