We're always a bit jealous of Lauren Conrad's shiny strands. It turns out that the secret behind her luscious locks is available at your local drugstore!

Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad's long blond strands always look shiny and amazing. She's admitted that some of that volume comes from extensions, but we've heard that the fashion mogul also swears by a hair mask that us mere mortals can nab at the corner drugstore.

Conrad, 27, uses Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Treatment ($8) at least once a week. This hydrating formula uses argan oil to strengthen, increase elasticity and add serious shine. After curling, she adds Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Dry Styling Oil ($8) to smooth any frizz and stray hairs. This moisture-restoring oil is said to repair damage caused by heat and styling tools while increasing strength and fighting frizz.

Other hair masks we love

Fekkai — PRX Reparatives Fortifying Mask ($49): Hair guru Frederic Fekkai developed a once-per-week hair mask that uses keratin and other hair proteins to improve texture, heal split ends and prevent future damage.

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Moisture Masque ($26): Pure organic bamboo extract and smoothing organic kendi oil work together to eliminate frizz and strengthen the hair shaft. Bonus! It's safe for colored hair, too.

Bosley Healthy Hair Strengthening Masque ($29): Most of the hair masks on the market are best suited for thicker hair, leaving fine-haired girls with limp, lifeless strands. Not anymore: Bosley uses biotin and vegetable proteins to strengthen fine hair, while chamomile and jojoba extracts add luster.

Why LC loves a good bargain

We'll admit we were a little surprised to hear that LC uses such an inexpensive hair trick. After all, she has plenty of paper in the bank to pay for the expensive stuff. Turns out she loves a good deal, too.

"My mom was a great bargain hunter, which I love because it kind of taught me how to dress high and low. I love wearing designer pieces with something I found at Target," she told StyleCaster in a 2012 interview.
