You don’t have to spend a bundle to get beautiful hair. Check out our picks for must-have hair care products that you can find at your local drugstore.
For a daily shampoo, you can’t go wrong with a tried and true product like Pantene Pro-V ($7). The vitamin-infused formula delivers clean, shiny hair every day.
For those days between washes, freshen up your hair with a dry shampoo like Dove STYLE+care Invigorating Dry Shampoo ($5). In a pinch, baby powder does the job too.
If you are looking for a conditioner that is light enough to use every day and won’t weigh your hair down, Tresemmé Silk Protein Healthy Volume Conditioner ($5) is the answer.
For dry, damaged hair, you can’t beat Infusium 23 Leave In Treatment ($7). Its light, protein- and vitamin-rich formula restores and restructures your hair.
For big, voluminous hairstyles, we love Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel ($9). It delivers amazing volume and natural hold.
Get the frizzies under control and protect your hair from heated styling tools with John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum ($8) in the thermal protection formula.
For flexible hold and natural movement, we recommend this line of Dove hairspray ($5). Formulated with weightless moisturizers, your hair looks soft and natural, never stiff and sticky. For maximum hold for those impossible hairstyles, stick with an old favorite — Aqua Net ($3).
Yes, you can get beautiful highlights from a box. Revlon Frost & Glow ($9) delivers amazing body, color and shine, and you control how light you want to go.
For power and performance, check out the Conair Ion Shine Ceramic 1875W Cord-Keeper Hair Dryer ($17). The blow dryer calms static and leaves your hair shiny and frizz-free.
