Frugal Snob: John Frieda’s New Color Specific Haircare

I have color-treated hair, but I also have very dry hair which makes it critical that the shampoo/conditioners I use target both (a good color care product should be made with dry hair in mind). Aside from Serge Normant’s Meta Blonde line I’ve never seen products that were made specifically for the color of your […]

Nine Naturals Citrus + Mint Shampoo & Conditioner: Pregnancy-Approved

When I got pregnant, I didn’t color my hair for a year. Even after the baby was born I was breastfeeding, so I didn’t want to use any chemicals that could affect her. I also found a special shampoo and conditioner set that was sulfate-free. Having been formulated for pregnant women, Nine Naturals has no […]

Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment: Treat Yourself

This is one of the best Frugal Snob buys because even at a low cost, there’s no compromising. I’ve used treatment oils at every price point, and I can honestly say that Agadir takes the #1 spot. I bought it at the drugstore on a particularly bad hair day (my frizzy ends, as you can […]

Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Dry Shampoo: Hair Dryer

Sometimes your hair needs a quick fix. I always want to like dry shampoo, but a lot of them just don’t work at all – or they make a hair emergency even worse. Philip B’s Russian amber shampoo is about the best I’ve come across! It doesn’t leave flakes, but it’ll give your hair some […]

For the second year in a row now I stopped by a pop-up LovelySkin hosted in Manhattan to showcase some of their best products. It was a great opportunity to not only learn about new beauty buys, but to speak with the people behind them to get a better feel for them and who they’re […]

Serge Normant’s Meta Blonde Reviving Shampoo and Conditioner

About a year ago I tried Serge Normant Meta Morphosis ($60), and while a ton of people have raved about this product, I didn’t care for it. It’s meant for people with dry hair, but unfortunately I felt like it was sucking all of the hydration out of mine (and I gave it a number […]

nuNaat Brazilian Keratin: This Keratin’s A Keeper

After two months, my (very expensive) Keratin treatment is looking almost non-existent. I loved it so much when I first got it, but now my hair is the same as it ever was, so don’t believe the hype! But that sleekness is addictive. Fortunately, a few bottles of the right hair products will give you […]

Black 15in1 Miracle Hair Shampoo and Conditioner: Black Magic

Despite my (expensive) keratin treatment back in early June, six weeks of traveling through Asia, in and out of humidity and dehydrating air conditioning, has taken a toll on my hair. Happily, I came home last week to find this waiting for me. With packaging that looks like some sort of new-age witch potion, the […]
