A few weeks ago I did a post on shampoos, but really, they're just the precursor to the crucial step: conditioning. But their elevated importance does not mean an elevated price. Here are three conditioners that produce top results, but conserve cash to spend on a top stylist.
For everyone: Mario Badescu's Hair Rinsing Conditioner ($8) is a gentle conditioner that leaves hair soft, shiny, and tangle-free. It has a light (and, I think, lovely) scent, too.
For moisture: Chemistry Salon Labs Daily Moisture Conditioner ($10)–the counterpart to one of the top budget-friendly shampoos–gets high marks, too. If you've got dry or flyaway hair and need an infusion of moisture, this is your shampoo. Same cute, spill-resistant bottle, too.
For volume: With no additional styling products, John Frieda's Luxurious Volume Full Splendor Conditioner ($6) gave me super-sexy, “Gee I hope I run into my ex-boyfriend on the street today” hair. 'Nuff said.
