when it comes to hair products, do you go for salon quality or do you think the goods from your local store works just as well. I, personally, like to mix it up.

I have never bought a product from a salon. (Me = cheap, lol). Herbal Essences, Sunsilk, and Garnier Fructis have always worked for me!

And sometimes I do olive oil treatments on my hair, and that comes from the grocery store as well :-P

I only buy stuff from the grocery store or drugstore. I usually use VO5 shampoo and conditioner, which is 99 cents at my drugstore. Sometimes I’ll use a special treatment on my hair, but that either comes from the drugstore as well, or else I mix up a mask using ingredients from the grocery store.

So yeah, no salon products for me. I haven’t even had a professional haircut in over 3 years!

“I haven’t even had a professional haircut in over 3 years!”

Me either. I’m the only person who’s cut my hair since Sept. 2008…it will have been 2 years next month.

I tend to buy Tresemme, Pantene, Garnier Fructise, etc.

Bits and pieces from drugstores, salons, department stores and health food shops. Tools from Sally’s. As I have a sensitive scalp and contradictory hair (spans a few “types” – coloured, fine strands but a huuuge number of them, so my hair is thick but not coarse, can get oily quickly and silicones build up on it easily), I cast my net quite widely to find stuff that works for me.

Salon stuff has basically the same ingredients as grocery store stuff, it’s just more expensive. I use Burts Bees shampoo/conditioner that I buy at Target. It is sulfate free (check pretty much any shampoo – it will contain sodium laureth sulfate or a variant of it. They also use sulfates in dishsoap) and much more gentle on my hair than anything, drugstore or salon, I’ve tried before.

I’ve tried almost every product out there, and I find that salon products work better for me.

I buy my shampoos from drug stores and I see no problem with that. I think the well know brands such as Pantene and Tressme work well. I’m not sure if I would consider a generic unknown brand. Salon shampoos aren’t ruled out for me considering I haven’t found the perfect shampoo that makes my hair incredibly luxurious. If it happened to be a salon brand I would just search for it on Amazon.com or go to Costco or something like that. I see no point in paying more for the EXACT same thing if you don’t have to. I got a coupon in 17 magazine for 50% off Catwalk by tgi hair products, I think I will try it to see what it does But if it doesn’t work I will go back to Dove damage restoring shampoo and Aveeno moisturizing conditioner even though it is not the perfect combo for me yet. For anyone who has found the perfect shampoos for them consider your self extremely lucky.

Salon (or professional) only – and sulfate and paraben free only. As a hairdresser we’ve been taught that some not professional brands has high content of silicone which makes your hair feel great after using, but makes chemical treatments like perms, straightening or coloring really difficult or totally unsuccessful. I’ve not experience this myself but my trainers have.

I always believe that supermarket brands are normally made for a price war. Thus lower quantities of good ingredients more quantities of bad (like foaming agents, preservatives …etc) and cheaper ingredients to drive manufacturing costs down = competitive prices.

I always get the drugstore brand hair products (Garnier, Herbal Essences, etc.) cause I’m cheap. If I wasn’t totally broke all the time I might get some salon products though. :P At TJ Maxx I sometimes get conditioner or styling products that are more high-end (Chi, Bedhead, etc.) for like, less than half the price, but a lot of times all of the hair products are half gone cause people open them up. >:( And I often get the shampoo bars from Lush though, I love them!
