Choose The Right Hair Product For You Pay The Price
Choosing the right hair product for your particular hair style and
texture can be confusing, especially with all of the hair care product
advertisements we are bombarded with on a daily basis. With each
commercial, each glossy ad, and each retail display case, companies do
their best to convince us that their hair product has just what it
takes to take our Medusa locks and turn them into tresses fit for the
runway. But can they really do all that they promise? And how do you
know which ones are worth investing in and which ones belong in the
Granted, hair products can do wonders when it comes to making your
do look the best that it can. But you need to choose the right products
or you else you may find yourself rinsing your money right down the
drain with your latest expensive hair care product.
Must have hair products
Depending on your hair type, there are several hair products that are essential for everyone.
First, you need a good shampoo that is tailored to your specific
hair type. While you don't have to spend a lot of money here, make sure
to choose a hair product that contains no waxy substances. Waxy
substances are used in many of the over-counter hair care products on
the market today. If you are unsure which ones contain wax, stick with
a professional shampoo. Truly professional shampoos can be found in
Next, you will need a professional conditioning hair product. If you
need to cut costs by purchasing an over-the-counter hair care product,
do it with the shampoo, not with your conditioner. Yes, you may spend a
few extra dollars, but your hair will thank you for it. Make sure that
your conditioner is tailored to your specific hair type. For example:
If you have chemically damaged hair, choose a hair product that repairs
and strengthens damaged hair.
Lastly, you will need various styling hair products. The ones you
choose will depend largely on your style. A good rule of thumb to
follow is this: use mousse for light, carefree and blow-dried styles;
gel for curly and wet-looking styles; and pomade for textured, funky
and spiked styles. A hair spray with the desired hold should be used to
finish off each style.
Expensive verses inexpensive hair care products
I'm a firm believer in that you get what you pay for, but that line
seems to get blurred when dealing with professional hair products. Most
people believe that when they buy hair products from salons that they
are going to end up paying a great deal of money for something that
they can pick up in the corner drug store for half the price. But this
is not the case.
The main differences between professional and non-professional hair
care products are in the quality of the products, not the pricing. I
have seen high-quality professional hair products sell for as little as
$5 a bottle, the same price that you would pay for many
non-professional products. So, you can get a great deal on professional
products. The bottom line is that no matter what the price,
professional is better.
Now, are high-priced professional hair products better than the
inexpensive ones? The answer is surprisingly no. While some
professional lines may have individual products that are perfect for
your hair and well worth the high price tag, most professional hair
care product lines, even the inexpensive ones, have everything that you
would ever need to make your hair gorgeous.
So, stop looking at the price tag and glamorous ads and start
looking at the back of the bottle to find out what hair products are
perfect for you. And if in doubt, ask your stylist.
