Hair Products: When To Splurge

From a hairstylists POV: when to save money on your hair products.

Read on to learn more.

As a licensed professional, I was taught in hair school to tell all clients to use professional products ONLY. For obvious reasons, I do recommend all guests to use professional products only; the quality of professional brands is *chefs kiss*.

If you’re using the best professional products for your current hair situation (and using them properly) you’re most likely having amazing results.

But sometimes it’s hard to find the best hair products.

This is another perk of investing is professional hair products! You can have your stylist customize hair products specifically for your hair.

Your hairstylist / colorist can customize a regimen for you just like a dermatologist would for your skin. Following this regimen shows amazing results over time. Not following the regimen, and settling for low quality products will also show results over time.. not good ones.

Hair tends to become dry, very dull, more frizzy than normal, and...

artificial hair color (balayage / vivids) fade a lot quicker when not using any hair products. Or color fading will happen when using low quality products.

All in all, we don’t tell you these things for no reason. But we also understand the products can feel like an investment.

This is where customizing the best products for you comes into play. You can determine which products your specific hair type / situation needs.

And once you have an idea of the products you’ll need, you can narrow down where to splurge and where to save.

Save Your Money

  • Dry shampoo

  • Hairspray

  • Texture spray

  • Pomades / Waxes / Pastes

Essentially, things used after styling don’t penetrate into the hair or leave you with unhealthy hair

Which leads us into splurging to get healthy hair or to maintain healthy hair.

Invest Your Money

  • Shampoo

  • Conditioner

  • Deep Conditioners / Hair Masks

  • Leave In Conditioners

  • Oils

  • Lotions / Cremes

These products make your hair healthy and keep it healthy. Your hair can’t afford cheap quality ingredients when it comes to these products.

Typically non professional brands water down their formulas so you think you’re getting more for less. But really, when it comes to professional brands, a higher concentrated product only requires a small amount for the best results.

There's a lot of products on the market, so it can be hard to figure out what to splurge or save on.

I've created some organized lists on my Amazon Store Front. Click here to browse through some of my favorite products that I use behind the chair everyday at the salon.

All of this info brought to you to conclude with, if your hair is doing well with whatever you’re using (professional, not professional, organic, natural) keep doin what you’re doing. This advice applies to those that feel they need it.

Wishing you happy hair days.
