If you’re guilty of letting TikTok tempt you into purchasing various hair products this year, trust us when we say you’re definitely not alone. The app that was once best known for its viral dance videos and silly challenges has somehow become the go-to destination for hair lovers when it comes to not only discovering the latest trends, but also getting incredible product recommendations. 

And, the power of TikTok is no joke. According to an internal study sponsored by TikTok, 43 percent of users have tried something after seeing it at least once on the platform. And with over 7.6 billion views and counting on the hashtag #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt, the app even has the ability to completely sell out of cult-favorite hair tools and products. 

Now that we are approaching the end of 2021, we’re taking the time to reflect over some of our favorite hair gems that went viral on the app this year. Ahead, 8 insanely popular hair products on TikTok that became famous this year and are totally worth the hype.
