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 […]

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 […]

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo: Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams

Ever since Tina tried Kérastase‘s Chronologiste Essential Restorative Concentrate last year, packed with pearls immersed in seawater, we’ve seen the power of caviar. But for $145, the treatment runs you about the same as a tiny tin of high-grade caviar (not including your champagne or side of crème fraiche!). That’s why I’m currently all about […]
