Dollar Tree and I have a special connection. Most recently outside of organizational and stationery items I have been using some Dollar Tree hair products, and for the price I’ve been overly pleased. My obsession for Dollar Tree expanded into the hair category as a result of my daughter constantly taking the brushes and products I use on her hair and using them on her dolls.
Ever tried to use a brush with matted doll hair in it? Or go to use your gel and it is sticky because the top was left off. Something had to give so I decided to give some of the Dollar Tree items a try. I still use brand name shampoo, conditioner, and leave in for washing.
In no particular order, these are my absolute favorite Dollar Tree hair products and essentials:
I. Combs + Brushes
We can’t keep enough of these around. I even found one that has a tiny little razor blade that you can use to cut the little black rubber bands that hold ponytails.
II. Argan Oil Gel
The smell of the Softee brand of Argan Oil Gel is amazing. Not too mention it will lay, slay and get some edges all the way together with no flaking and it contains no alcohol.
III. Hair Accessories
Dollar Tree is the absolute best place for hair accessories. The lifespan of a headband, or hair bow around here is about a week. Spending $1 on cute ones just seems logical. There are times whenthe higher end brands like Goody and Scuncii find their way into the Dollar Tree. When you see them, buy ALL of them, or at least one of each. I find these to be incredible deals and worth the splurge.
Dollar Tree keeps good storage options, I use the little sliding drawers to hold mini rubber bands. I had a bad experience with those and beads. We now keep those in a sealed container for my sanity.

V. Shower Caps
Shower caps in my house come at a premium. You would think with just my daughter and I utilizing them that we wouldn’t have a problem. The reality is we lose shower caps, a lot.
VI. Bobby Pins
I can never find them when I need them. NEVER. With 72 GOOD bobby pins in a pack for $1, I keep a stash of them on hand.
VII. Hair Clips
When detangling, styling and braiding hair it is essential to keep the unused hair out of the way. The clips at Dollar Tree aren’t as sturdy as ones you may get from Sally’s but they get the job done. They normally come 4-5 in a pack for $1. Can’t beat that.

Never thought to go in to the Dollar Tree for those items, but now I will!
My baby loses hairbows, before we walk out the door and being natural, I always need bobby pins.

The hair bows are so worth it when they are young!

We get all our bobby pins, and storage trays there too! Why spend a ton more money somewhere else?

Yes!! Those little items add up when you get them from regular stores

The Dollar Tree is my BFF when it comes to all of these! We also stock up on hair ties and elastic headbands from there too. I love my Target, but I can’t buy $3-5 for something I know I can get for a $1 elsewhere.

Exactly! I just wait until they make it to DT and buy a bunch

I love the dollar tree!! Lol. I have a mild obsession. It’s really about around Christmas. But my go to hair products are flexirods and headbands. Still working on the Bobby pins I got a few months ago.
