The Downside of Drugstore Hair Products
Drugstore hair products are cheap for a reason.
We all want to have beautiful hair, and one of the best things you can do for your hair is to invest in high quality products. Most people settle for hair products in the drugstore or grocery store because they are so much cheaper than professional products. Although you may save money, your hair will be the one paying the price. Here are a few reasons to ditch the drugstore hair products and start using professional products, like L’anza, Olaplex and American Crew:
Believe it or not, saving money isn’t really a good reason to purchase drugstore hair products. While, yes, drugstore products are much cheaper, they also won’t last as long. Many manufacturers that sell their products in drugstores water them down significantly, which means that you have to use a lot more to achieve the same results.
In addition to watering down their products, many manufacturers also stuff their drugstore hair products with fillers. These fillers will make your hair super soft at first, but they will also leave behind a waxy buildup over time. This is great for the manufacturer, because it means that you’ll have to wash your hair more often and buy more of their product.
#3. pH Balance
The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of drugstore hair products have pH levels that are just too high to keep your hair healthy. When pH levels are high in your shampoo and other hair products, it will leave your hair shafts open and exposed to the harmful elements around you.
