Ah, Target. The place where dreams come true. The place where I buy half my wardrobe (don’t judge me). The place where you go in with the intention of spending $100 and end up maxing out your credit card. It’s a magical place. Anyone who is able to visit their local Target without coming out with a ton of stuff they don’t need is a sociopath who should not be trusted. That said, I assume we don’t all have unlimited budgets. If you’re going to spend money you don’t have on stuff you probably don’t need, you need to make sure it’s at least good quality first. We already talked about the best makeup and skin care Target has to offer, so now we’re focusing on the best hair and body products at Target.
Best Hot Tools
Honestly, it’s basically impossible to find a collection of salon-grade hot tools of NuMe’s quality for less than $150 anywhere, and the fact that you can pick up their Jetsetter collection at your local Tar-jay is a godsend. The collection includes a flat iron, hair wand, and blowdryer, all of which are travel size but efficient enough for everyday use. The smooth tourmaline surfaces mean that you won’t experience serious breakage like you do with other hot tools.
Best Body Wash
Besides having a cheeky name and cute little bottle, Plant Apothecary’s Get Happy Bodywash contains peppermint to give skin a cooling sensation and is 100% natural (but actually, it’s made with all organic oils). You’ll be happy with how clean you feel AND your skin will be happy with the fact that you’re not lathering harsh chemicals all over it.
Sometimes, even when you have a million options, you need to go with ol’ faithful and that’s the case with Jergens’ Ultra Healing lotion. Sure, Target has a million other options for daily moisturizers, but none of them leave skin quite as moisturized as Jergens. The lotion absorbs quickly so you can apply it and run out the door without feeling slimy, and it’s packed with Vitamins C and E to lock in moisture for up to 48 hours so you won’t look ashy when you decide to throw on a sundress last minute.
Biosilk’s Volumizing Therapy gives major hold without the hard, sticky texture that you get from other hairsprays at the same price point. The best part? The bottle is only 10 bucks for 12 oz., which means it will last you the entire summer while you try to tame your humidity-induced frizz.
Best Shampoo & Conditioner
It seems like everywhere we look, celebrity MUAs and hair stylists are inking deals for new product lines; however, Kristin Ess’ namesake collection is on a different level. The stylist behind Jenna Dewan’s and Lucy Hale’s manes now has products available at Target, and it def tops our list of best beauty products at Target. The shampoo is high lathering, sulfate-free and made for just about any hair type and texture. It features a “zip-up technology” which targets the weak strands and seals up cuticles, so you can finally stop dealing with split ends.
Best Dry Shampoo
In case you didn’t know, dry shampoo is ruining your hair. But, if you’re like us and fuck up your shower schedule on the reg because you’re a tired betch and therefore MUST use dry shampoo, Dove’s Refresh and Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo is the way to go. It’s great for soaking up the excess oils in your hair without overdoing it and leaving your hair and scalp feeling dry and stringy.
