Over the past few years, hair care has emerged as a main beauty priority for many, and for good reason. We are constantly damaging our hair with dye and hot tools such as hair straighteners, and hair loss due to increased stress is another major issue for many right now.

Recently, many people have committed to undoing this damage by shopping for hair care, whether it's for growth, conditioning, enhancing color or any other hair-related concern. There are so many hair care products out there that it can be hard to know what products are worth it.

Thankfully, Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Director Jessica Matlin stopped by TODAY and shared 10 of her favorite products from the Harper's Bazaar Hair Awards. Read on to learn how you can get stronger and healthier hair without the hassle.
