For most of us, buying hair care products on a budget is essential. This can feel really overwhelming when you are faced with hundreds upon hundreds of hair care products, and don’t know which ones will give you the look you want without destroying your hair. In most cases, there are budget hair products that you can purchase at a local store that can produce the same results as salon products…you just need to know which among the hundreds to buy. Here are some fabulous items I have found at my local stores, that have given me some great results. These are some of the best kept secrets in hair care products:
These days, purchasing shampoo and conditioner is especially confusing with all the different types that are now available. It seems that every month there’s a new type: invigorate your curls, tame your curls, straighten, plump, smooth, sleek, extra shine, protect, repair, for color treated hair etc. This can get so confusing, and most of these shampoos have a very similar make-up, but every once and a while there is a product that really helps to produce the advertised outcomes. One of the best shampoo and conditioner brands that does this is the John Frieda collection. You can find it at almost all stores, and it produces very satisfying results. It is especially good for creating a smooth, sleek look, while reducing fly aways. The John Freida anti-frizz serum comes in a small bottle, and you just have to use a small amount to get a sleek, smooth look for any hair type.
One of the absolute best kept product secrets is 2-in-1 children’s shampoo. It is completely amazing and can do wonders for your hair. Suave and L’oreal are both great brands. They’re really inexpensive and the 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner is really great for people who are in a hurry to get ready in the morning. Children’s shampoo is designed specifically to be gentle. It makes your hair softer, gives you less tangles, and creates that youthful shine. No one thinks to use children’s shampoo, but it’s a wonderful product secret.
Another tip to remember is that although people are always talking about home remedies, some work, while others can really damage your hair. One really great example of a home product is using lemon to lighten your hair. When using lemon, however, you should pulverize an entire lemon, apply it to your hair, and sit in the sun, instead of simply pouring the juice onto your hair. The oil from the peel will keep your hair moisturized so that it has less of a chance of drying out from the acidic juice.
These products are some of the best kept secrets and defiantly a good place to start if you are looking for new hair care lines to sample, but above all, it is important to remember that products react differently to different people’s hair. Try out a few different products to
see what works for you, and pay attention to the effect they have on your hair. If you notice that it is becoming brittle or has excessive drying, stop using it and try something else. Also, don’t become discouraged if a product you have used stops working the way that it
used to. With almost all products, over time, they loose their effect as hair develops a build-up of these substances. The solution for this is just to try something new, and try your old product once again when you decide you need a change.
