Save vs Splurge ... Hair Care

This week, I wanna share some comparisons that I have found between some of our everyday beauty products. I will let you in on which brands are worth the extra pennies, and which are better on the budget!
Shampoo and conditioner ... can not live without them! Salons rave about Pureology's vegan line of hair care products. Organic ingredients, UVA/UVB sunscreens, anti-fade formulas and free of sulfates, Pureology promises to protect your hair and nourish your strands. Retail starts at around $25 for a 10-ounce bottle of shampoo or 8-ounce bottle of conditioner.

L'Oreal also has a line that is sulfate-free, 100% vegan, made with botanicals and UVA/UVB filters, and an anti-fade system. EverPure promises to protect and nourish your locks, and adding some aromatherapy to your shower with scents like Rosemary Mint. An 8.5-ounce bottle of shampoo or conditioner will run you $6.99 per bottle.

The winner ... L'Oreal EverPure! I have used both of these lines, and I adore EverPure so much more! Salons will rave about Pureology and their all-natural benefits, but compare these 2 labels, and they are pretty much the same! Plus, Pureology tends to weigh my hair down after using it for a few weeks. EverPure is lightweight and does not build up in my hair. Plus, I love the smell - rosemary mint and juniper scents are awesome in the shower steam. An added bonus ... L'Oreal often has coupons for their products, so you can snag these products for an even better deal!

I will buy salon products every single time. I used to do hair for a living and I know what's in those other shampoos!

I don't agree with the previous comment. All those 'salon' shampoo/conditioners eventually end up at my drugstore and I find no difference in the overall performance. Definitely going to give this line a try..thanks for the review!
