Welcome to the garbage dump of my thoughts. haystephhay@gmail.com

I’m going to tell you something it took me entirely too long to figure out:

Expensive shampoos are a waste.

Obviously my opinion, but having bought plenty of them, those are my findings.
My hair looks the same, dare I say better, using the blue Herbal Essences from Costco (!) than it does when pampered with Bumble & Bumble. 
I think it varies more with styling products - from what I hear, Morrocanoil is worth the money, and from what I know, Sebastian Potion 9 is worth the money. At least they stay on your hair instead of getting washed down the drain??
Unless you have expensive color or hair so dry it snaps off…the drugstore is your friend. Pantene is amazing. 
This is not to say I’m loyal to any brand, or that I’ll stop trying things for the fun of it, but there is no shame in $4.99 shampoo. None. 
((not my bathroom, but it easily could have been once upon a time))

  3. indieless said: I definitely agree abt the morrocan oil. I use the conditioner and it is ridiculously expensive but really works. But it’s probably the only investment product I’ve used that I really really love. (Maybe living proof too)
  4. jodilyn said: I use the $2 Suave salon brands and it’s the only thing that doesn’t make my hair disgusting. Totes agree.
  5. kindredsmile said: I’m a drugstore girl all the way. Herbal Essences hasn’t let me down yet. Most of the other hair ingredients I use can be found in my kitchen - eggs, bananas, olive oil, etc.
  6. imnotthatkindofgirl said: I can do some of the drug store brands because some are too oily and weigh my hair down. My all time favorite is Neutrogena Clean Shampoo and Conditioner (in the pink bottles)
  7. profashional said: Pantene til the wheels fall off. I will use Lush’s Big shampoo once a week because it really gets rid of all the product build up, and I do like Nexxus Therappe conditioner, but that’s about it.
  8. ilikeyourwigjanice said: Suave vibrant shine. I’ll never leave you.
  9. seejadeblog said: Bumble and Bumble does nothing for my hair. Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky is where it’s at!
  10. anniehinton said: Pantene and herbal essences are the best shampoo/conditioner combo I’ve ever used. My hair smells fantastic and looks good. I could never spend a ton on hair products.
  11. sweetvirginiabreeze said: agree totally. i’ve used herbal essences FOREVER (just can’t get enough of the smell) but also love pantene and the suave salon-esque line. products tend to be worth the money but shampoo? no way
  12. ebats said: head and shoulders for this girl. it’s no joke…far superior to b&b and kerastase ish
