As much as beauty is an innovation-driven industry, it can often seem like the skin-care category is where most of the action is. Hair care, not so much.

Fall is upon us, and with it comes a crop of new, weird (in a good way!) hair products that are poised to shake up your hair routine. If you've officially vowed to only buy products that you don't already have 12 versions of sitting in your bathroom cabinet, we're here with good news: These new formulas are unlike any you've tried before. Think pre-shampoo scrubs and balms, dry shampoo blotting sheets and conditioning waters you never knew you needed (but definitely do). Ahead, you'll find the 13 most innovative hair products to shop this season — and there's something for every hair type (and budget).
