How many of you color your hair? How many of you spend your Summer's poolside? This combo might sound pretty fab, but let me tell you, it does a number on your locks! I don't care how trained your stylist is or what not-so-harsh chemicals you dump in your pool, your hair will start to feel the elements after awhile.
In this post I'm here as a total brand whore to tell
you that you DO NOT have to shell out serious cash at your salon to get your hair feeling silky smooth again! Deep conditioners are probably one of the few things in life that I will admit, sometimes the cheapest product on the shelf will leave your hair looking 10 times more fab than that ridiculously overpriced bottle sitting at your favorite salon! So next time you're running low on conditioning goods, save your cash for that new lipstick you have been eyeing and try one of these budget friendly conditioning products instead!
Nexxus Masque Caviar Complex
Kinda on the pricey side for a drug store deep conditioner, but it's my all-time favorite!!!! If you ever see it on sale, totally stock up because your hair will be feeling like silk after your very first use!
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle
I don't think there is a blonde out there that hasn't gone through a 3 Minute Miracle phase! I was first introduced to this product when I was modeling & have been a fan ever since! Leave this stuff on your head long enough & it's comparable to the Nexxus. If you're a Walmart shopper you can usually find this stuff on sale ALL THE TIME!!! Worth picking up and trying no matter what color hair you have. I promise the frizz will disappear.
Pantene 3 Minute Miracle
I'm guessing since Aussie's 3 minute was a total success, Pantene had to make a copy cat! Because that's exactly what this is. The conditioner works exactly like the Aussie. Leaves your locks silky smooth if kept on long enough. Pantene is known for their buy one get one deals, so that's about the only time I choose Pantene over Aussie since it is just a copy cat after all.
Generic Conditioning Balm
I will start out by saying omg the name SUCKS!!! But if you can get past the bottle being exactly that, generic, the product that is inside is pretty fab. My go to shampoo & conditioner when I was in high school was Biolage so being able to score a copy cat for under $8 at Sally's Beauty is just killer.
I saved the shocker for last!!! This isn't exactly drug store since you buy it at the Dollar Tree, but since it's only $1 it deserves a shoutout! You read that correctly, a deep conditioner from the Dollar Tree actually works. And not only does it work, it now earns the #2 spot on my favorites list. I just discovered this stuff back in June when a friend saw my Nexxus sponsored post & was like girl, go to Dollar Tree, they have a copy cat! I hesitated on the purchase at first, but eventually did make it and bam. Love at first use. If you were to go in my shower right now, you would see a tub of Salon Selectives right next to my Nexxus! I alternate every other use since the Nexxus is pretty pricey. So next time you're at Dollar Tree, just bite your tongue and buy it. You won't regret it & your hair will be feeling softer than ever!
