Is Drugstore Shampoo Better?

by Brianna Thompson

When it comes to hair care, there are a plethora of options available, from drugstore brands to high-end salon graded products. But which one is better for your hair? Well, the truth is that every type of hair is different and has different needs, so it's difficult to give a one-size-fits-all answer. However, there are a few things to consider when choosing between drugstore and high-end salon graded products.

Product Dependency

Firstly, there is the potential for product dependency. Hair can rely on one specific shampoo or conditioner to feel good, when in reality, there may be an underlying hair issue that needs to be addressed. This can be a problem if you're using a cheap shampoo that isn't addressing the root cause of your hair problems. In this case, it's worth investing in a higher-end product that can actually address the root cause of your hair problems.

Quality Over Quantity

That being said, quality over quantity matters, and sometimes a cheaper shampoo can be the best option. However, it's important to pay attention to the ingredients in the shampoo or conditioner you're using. Even high-end products don't always use quality ingredients, but they put a higher price tag on their products simply because they can. So, it's crucial to read the labels and research the ingredients before making a purchase.

Consider Your Hair Type

When it comes to choosing the right product, it's essential to consider your specific hair needs. For instance, if you have fine hair, you may benefit from using a volumizing shampoo or conditioner. If you have curly hair, you may want to use a product that defines your curls and reduces frizz. Ultimately, it's about finding the right product for your hair type and needs, regardless of whether it's a drugstore brand or a high-end salon graded product. Also remember hair care takes trial and error, and you may have to try a product a couple of times before you know if it works for you.
