In this video I’m pitting drugstore vs salon hair products and showing you some dupes to save money! Don’t get me wrong, I love high end and salon hairstyling products as much as anyone, but I know we all have budgets and sometimes less expensive items are better. Lets talk about some drugstore products that are seriously worth the hype!
When you break down the best and worst parts of the average beauty routine, hair care can be one of the most tedious and expensive aspects.
From washing to styling, and every other step in between, hair-care routines are nothing if not complicated. And when you take into account that different hair types require varying levels of care and amounts of product, the task might as well be rocket science.
Thankfully, caring for your locks doesn’t have to be difficult or costly.
Below, we rounded up some of the best drugstore products you can get for your hair type, based on online customer reviews.
First, here’s how to figure out your hair type.
In the 1990s, Oprah Winfrey’s hairstylist, Andre Walker, created a simple hair classification system that is still widely used in the industry today. Modeled after Walker’s system, sites like Naturally Curly and CURLS now feature useful categorization tools that can help you figure out your hair type and how best to care for your hair.
These classification systems break hair types down into four numerical categories, each of which has three subcategories, labeled with letters “a” through “c.” The number represents a texture family while the letter represents how loose or tight your curls are within that family.
It’s important to note, however, that your hair may not fit perfectly into one category or subcategory. Your hair may also be a combination of several hair types. Both are totally normal, according to Naturally Curly.
