Influenster Reviewers’ Choice Awards: The Hair Care Champs

The hair care winners of 2020

From dry shampoo to deep conditioner and everything in between, we’re here with a rundown of all of the hair care products that were resonating with you, the Influenster community in 2020. Whether people were rocking an at home cut and color, growing their hair out all the way, stepping up their deep conditioning game, or trying out the latest TikTok hair trend, these are some of the products you were reaching for, in your own words:

Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo

"This is such an amazing shampoo that helps to balance and clean your scalp with healing oils. It’s paraben and sulfate free which makes it a great shampoo both natural and color treated hair. Once my stylist used this shampoo on my hair at the salon I was hooked. I have blonde highlighted hair now so I do now use the Oribe Bright Blonde shampoo but I still purchase this shampoo as well because my husband loves it and uses it." - Lauren J. 

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Hair And Scalp Treatment

"I have been having scalp issues through the summer. I wear my hair up in a bun on top of my head and have been going between the pool and going on runs outside. I have developed itchy bumps in the ends of my hair follicles. This product was one of the most highly recommended products on Ulta to treat the itchy ness. The product runs about $18 so it is a little more pricey. However after just one use this solved the itchy bumps problem. It has a cooking effect that is like rubbing icy hot on your scalp. It feels amazing and calms the scalp. It also has a great peppermint scent that I feel helps relax me. The product was a great buy and even makes my hair super soft. I will continue to buy in the future." - Annelise D. 

Bumble and bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil Heat

"Best heat protectant on the market in my opinion. Never leaves my hair greasy and a little goes a long way so it'll last awhile. It has a somewhat watery consistency but I use 3 or 4 pumps on my hands and run it through my hair. I then brush it through and style normally with my heat tools. This will leave your hair sleek and frizz free, which is so important to me since I live in Florida and the humidity is very high. As we all know ladies, humidity is not our friend and can ruin an hours worth of work on your hair. That is what makes this product so wonderful and useful. I can give the middle finger to Florida heat with this product because it protects my hair from it all, all day long and into the next. Long lasting, smells great, and really makes the difference with heat styling. If you're on the fence, take my word (and countless other 5 star reviews) and order it! You will not regret it and can thank me later. 😉 " -Debra L. 

Moroccanoil - Smoothing Conditioner

"Great product, return buyer as hair was super damaged from bleaching from black to ash blonde and hair was very burnt and brittle. After only 2 weeks using this, my hair has started a very dramatic repair and the shine has been restored." - Sujata S. 

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

"Best dry shampoo I’ve ever tried ! Not only does it smell amazing, the scent lasts for quite a few days, but it also does it’s job at keeping the oils at bay and gives a nice volume at the roots. It doesn’t leave a white streak in the hair like most dry shampoos do but the rare times it does, I wet my fingers a tiny bit, run it through my hair and blow dry it. I like to wash my hair once a week, it won’t get that oily until the 4-5th day and I will always reach for this when my hair starts to get oily. Will always keep this stocked up!" - Ashley L.

Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo

"I love any Pantene shampoo and conditioner. It always makes my hair feel soft and it also makes my hair easier to comb through which is nice because my hair is so thick. Pantene also makes their shampoos smell so good and the scent really stays on my hair for a while after taking a shower." - Lauren K.
