It’s officially July, and normally, we’d be getting our red, white, and blue gear ready and preparing to cheer on our favorite sport in the Summer Olympics.

From July 14 to July 15, we held our very first Mane Games competition, pitting our favorite hair products against each other to see which will reign supreme as the best products of all time. You, the Hair.com readers, voted—and we’re breaking down which products took the top spot in each category. Did your favorites win? Keep scrolling to find out.

Round 3: Leave-In Conditioner Vs. Hair Primer


Winner: Leave-In Conditioner

Whether you have thick hair or a color-treated mane that’s prone to dryness, you’ll likely need more than a regular conditioner to hydrate your locks. That’s why we love leave-in conditioners for providing that extra dose of nourishment. Read on for our ultimate guide to leave-in conditioners.

Round 4: Dry Shampoo Spray Vs. Dry Shampoo Powder


Winner: Dry Shampoo Spray

Selecting a dry shampoo is like picking your favorite cocktail—there’s so many to choose from, and everyone has different tastes. If you like to stick to the basics, opt for a dry shampoo spray.

Round 7: Hair Oil Vs. Hair Serum


Winner: Hair Serum

Hair serums and hair oils are often confused, but the two serve very different hair beautifying purposes. While hair oils typically moisturize and soften your mane, hair serums are stylers that create shine, tame frizz, and add smoothness. Between the two, hair serums took the win. Check out our full breakdown of hair serums.

Round 8: Scalp Scrub Vs. Pre-Shampoo Treatment


Winner: Scalp Scrub

Shampoo and conditioner shouldn’t always be the first step in your shower routine. If your scalp needs a major detox, a scalp scrub is a must-have. Wondering how to exfoliate your scalp the right way? Click here for our full guide.

Round 9: Protein Mask Vs. Moisturizing Mask


Winner: Moisturizing Mask

Hair masks are a go-to when you’re treating yourself to some me-time (at-home spa day, anyone?). If your mane is lacking much-needed hydration, a moisturizing mask is the clear choice. Read on for a round-up of our best hair masks.

Round 10: Rinse Out Treatment Vs. Leave-In Treatment


Winner: Leave-In Treatment

Whether in the salon or at home, every hair type can benefit from a hair treatment from time to time—and Hair.com readers favor leave-in formulas! Click here for our guide to at-home and salon hair treatments.
