Drugstore Hair Care Part 1

In continuation of my previous posts (here and here) about my favorite drugstore products, here are some fantastic shampoos and conditioners you can pick up at your local Walgreens!  I have either tried or currently use all of these products.  Stay tuned for great drugstore styling products in Part 2!

Shampoos

John Frieda Sheer Blonde & Go Blonder Shampoos $6.49

All the John Frieda products I have tried are salon-quality.  I notice that my highlights are brighter, blonder and shinier when I use either of these shampoos.  I’m currently using the Go Blonder.

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Fortifying Shampoo $4.99

I use this once a week for deep cleansing.  It rids hair and scalp of product buildup without overdrying.  It also smells like fresh green apples and the scent lingers on my hair.  It’s 92% biodegradable, has no silicones and contains sugar cane, lemon peel extract, green tea and acerola fruit extract…whatever that is!

Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo $6.99

This super hydrating shampoo is full of coconut oil, egg whites and coconut milk.  It smells like a tropical vacation and leaves my hair really soft and fragrant.  Organix bottles are eco-friendly and manufactured from materials containing recycled post-consumer resin, which is an added bonus to this delicious shampoo.

Neutrogrena Triple Moisture Cream Lather Shampoo $5.99

This gentle shampoo is full of olive, meadowfoam seed and sweet almond extracts that deeply hydrate hair.  It also smells really great.

Daily & Deep Conditioners

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner $6.79

This conditioner has all the same effective ingredients as the matching shampoo I mentioned above, and leaves hair detangled and super soft.

L’oreal Evercreme Deep Nourishing Masque $8.99

I absolutely love this deep conditioner.  I just ran out and need more ASAP!  It’s full of Omega-3 and 6 and it leaves my hair so soft and managable.  I use this once a week.  It’s also 100% vegan and smells heavenly.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner $3.99

I haven’t used this product in years but I remember really liking it.  It won an Allure Best of Beauty 2011 Cheap Thrills award.  It’s full of Australian sea kelp, aloe and jojoba oil and is a  fantastic detangler.  Plus you can’t beat the price!
