When it comes to hair care I have learned that you never know what you’re going to get for the price. In some instances I have invested in brands that are supposed to be “the best out there” and to my dismay they hardly get the job done. In other instances I have invested in brands that cost as much as a cup of coffee, and I ended up pleasantly surprised. And vice versa, of course. So when it comes down to it-I’m not a hair care brand snob, or unusually particular. In fact, I like to keep a good mix of products as long as they are getting the job done. Because that is the goal in optimum haircare: find what works for YOU, YOUR budget, and YOUR hair.
In order to help you achieve this end goal, let’s try to answer the age old question.. Save OR splurge?
