Do expensive hair products = better product? Or are you buying it just for the name?

I'm definitelly trying more Phytoproducts in the future.
I also like that they have a natural scent (Lactum shampoo smells of almonds)-i can't stand artificially perfumed stuff(like Herbal Essences, sorry Charms
). hmm those work too then? i am makin a mental note

Considering the amount of colour I've had on it inthe last 6 months, herbal essences has worked miracles. I also love the Dove range of special conditioners for coloured hair - both brands may be cheap but they make my hair appear a lot nicer compared to more expensive brands I have used!

I think it totally depends on the product and your hair. Some people have hair that just looks good no matter what.

For me, I love Matrix Sleek Look, it makes my hair soft, shiny, and smooth. I will totally keep paying for it. However Matrix Curl Life hasn't done much for me, I had better luck with L'oreal Curl Vive for when I'm going natural.

Also I've used a lot of Paul Mitchell, right now I'm using the Super Skinny Shampoo/conditioner/serum. Well the serums great, but the shampoo/conditioner make my hair feel kinda dry now. I alternate my products so it's not too bad, but I def. won't repurchase.

My 2 fave drugstore brands are John Frieda Sheer Blonde and Got 2 Be, all the stuff they make works really well for me!

Also Sally's has generic versions of many products so that's worth a try!

For me it varies. I just started using Dove's mousse on my hair and I love it. But I also use Alterna (which is pricier) and it works great too.

If you have thick, shiny hair then drugstore stuff would be fine. But if you have hair problems (such as fine hair or frizzy hair) or ESPECIALLY if you color your hair & want to the color to last and not get brassy (if blonde) then salon products are probably better. Salons sell color-depositing shampoos for colored hair and higher quality conditioners to soothe & repair chemically treated hair. But just like makeup, it is a trial and error process to discover what works best for you.
