October is spooky for many reasons, with Halloween being the most obvious. Less apparent is the stress that comes with it that can wreak havoc on both your hair and your scalp. You’re likely knee-deep into the school year, planning for Halloween festivities, and adjusting to the newly cooled-down weather. Luckily, the start of this month kicks off a wave of damn good hair products to get you through.
On this list, you’ll find a heat-protecting spray that will fend off the damage you do to your hair as you test out Halloween beauty looks, an emollient conditioner that will restore the moisture that the drier weather has zapped from your hair and scalp, and a dry shampoo for days you just don’t have time to wash your hair.
Check out our editors’ picks for the best new hair products launching this October, ahead.
