The Price of Perfect Hair

Amanda Bar

I accidently stumbled into what might be considered a financial blunder today, but for the sake of science I'm willing to conduct my own mini-experiment now that I've spent the money.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I got my hair cut & styled over at MasterCuts.  Well, the hairdresser convinced me during my session that I should consider buying some of the salon-brand products at the store, and went on to tell me how many common brands (such as Pantene, which I was previously using) contain the same ingredients that you can find in household cleaners - thus, not very good for your hair!  Being low on shampoo, I decided to swing by and pick up a bottle or two.

$42.29 later I find myself with "It's a 10" shampoo and conditioner, a brand that I have never heard of in my life but, based upon the price, is made from the tears of Chuck Norris.  According to the hairstylist the price will even out in the end because I need to use significantly less shampoo/conditioner to get the same results (i.e. a good lather).  I suppose we shall see, because as of today I am marking off my calendar how long these pricey babies last me.  If my hair looks better than that's proof all on it's own, but if I end up buzzing through $40+ worth of shampoo and conditioner in a few weeks I really can't justify the extra expense.

Amanda,

Your hair, skin and nails are positively or negatively affected by what you intake and what you use externally to take care of each. Beauty comes from the inside out. Vitamins, nutrients,minerals and golden millet oil have been proven to positively affect the appearance of the hair, skin and nails. Hirsana golden millet oil capsules not only promote, strong thick, shiny hair but also help prevent hair loss. The capsules support natural skin functions, contributing to a healthy, radiant complexion. Hirsana also adds strength and luster to nails, fortifying, conditioning and brightening from head to toe. Try Hirsana, just take 2 capsules a day to boost the beauty of your hair, skin and nails. You'll start to feel and see the benefits soon after you start a Hirsana regimen. After three months, reduce dosage to one capsule a day. Where to find it: www.hirsanausa.com

MMB - Thanks for the advice. I'm not finding myself very happy with this over-priced shampoo/conditioner.

I just bought Biolage at JCPenny on sale. I stocked up on Black Friday but I was afraid I was going to run out so I got it 2/$22 on the big bottles. I love love LOVE the way it smells.
