Considering what the world has been through in the past two years, any semblance of normalcy is deeply appreciated these days. In the beauty world, where discounts come and go like flashes in the pan, there’s one big sale to plan for: Black Friday, baby. The yearly event is like the Superbowl of shopping, and it means fantastic deals on all the haircare you can think of, à la a dreamscape where all the best-selling shampoos and serums reveal lower prices with each blink. The only pressure, of course, is how to make the most of your day.
With deals coming in from major destinations like Ulta, Sephora, Dermstore, Nordstrom, and Amazon, there’s no end to the markdowns today. We’ve also highlighted the best independent brand bonanzas happening, like those from Klorane, Pattern by Tracee Ellis Ross, Kérastase, and Vegamour.
If you want all the benefits of a hair thickening serum without the added step, Vegamour, BosleyMD, and Shapiro MD’s shampoos are infused with ingredients that make for longer, stronger hair. DpHue’s apple cider vinegar rinse, meanwhile, leaves locks gleaming thanks to its gentle, frizz-taming acidity. Thank well-tuned pH values for that one.
If you’re not familiar with Virtue, the line is behind Jennifer Garner’s glossy brown strands — and it rarely goes on sale, so snag this deal while you can. IGK’s deeply repairing amla conditioner is in the same boat, and according to shoppers, makes for “super shiny” hair.
Kérastase is the magic behind more celebrities’ hair than you’d ever imagine: Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Meghan Markle, and Hillary Duff are all reported fans. With that kind of reputation, it’s no wonder that the brand is also hardly ever discounted — so a 25 percent discount is a gift.
Vegamour’s Gro Hair Serum counts 1600 five-star ratings on the brand’s website, where customers extoll the rapid transformation they saw from the vitamin- and polyphenol-rich fluid. “Omfg! This stuff works,” wrote one such person. “I’m 33, and when I noticed a bald spot in the front of my head, I panicked. The results have been amazing — nothing short of a miracle. I don’t have to brush my hair to hide my bald spot anymore. I’m so happy, and if I could buy a lifetime supply right now, I would.”
If there’s a hair product more essential than dry shampoo, I’ll believe it when I see it. Klorane’s version is the gold standard for revamping oily and dirty hair without showering, thanks to its clean, understated scent and formula that really, truly gets the job done (without leaving you scattered in white flakes and residue). Score it on sale, and thank yourself on busy mornings from here on out.
