You don't need a million dollars in the bank to get great hair. So many of our favorite hair tools--the ones we rely on to get voluminous, curly, straight, glossy, perfect hair--are waiting for us at our local drugstore, and we can definitely get on board with their affordable price tags. Maybe you're searching for the best curling wand within your budget. Or, perhaps, your current hair dryer isn't cutting the mustard (and is leaving your hair a frizzy mess). These 8 drugstore hair tools hold the key to your best hair days ever--and plenty of customers agree.

Conair Instant Heat Hot Brush

This brush heats up in 30 seconds, offers 25 heat settings, and creates sexy, big, voluminous waves and curls. Its many fans love using this instead of hot rollers and say it delivers frizz-free curls and body in just minutes.

Infiniti by Conair Pro 1875 Watt Styler

It isn't always easy to find a hair dryer that works well and doesn't cost more than $100, but this cute, lightweight green dryer is lauded for its ability to enhance shine, dry hair quickly, and travel well. It isn't the strongest dryer on the market and its cord does not retract into the handle, which was a bone of contention among some users, but you can't beat the price and it works especially well on straight hair.

Ms. Manicure Pop Up Mirror and Brush

For less than than the cost of a bottle of water, you can own a mirror and brush combo so adorable, so compact and portable, that you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Reviewers say it fits right in your purse and is perfect for after work/before cocktail touch-ups.

Karina Gradient Bobby Pins

Know those little baby fine hairs around your head? These super pretty bobby pinks, which are unique in that they come in various widths, will keep them off your face and are great for creating any hairstyle under the sun. Reviewers say they don't slip like other clips, work great on both fine and thick hair, and even blend in beautifully with grey hair.

FROMM Diane Oil Detangler Comb

This wide-tooth comb is a favorite because it is infused with vitamin E, omega 3 and minerals found in almonds and avocados--all the better to give your hair a boost of hydration. Customers say they it's gentle enough to use on wet and dry hair, some have noticed less hair loss after switching to this comb, and most agree it offers one of the most painless detangling solutions--a total keeper.

OLIVIA GARDEN Ceramic + Ion Thermal Hairbrush

This large round brush features a vented ceramic barrel to help achieve bouncy blow-outs that last days. Customers love the firm grip of the handles, its solid but soft bristles, and how it helps cut drying time in half.
