The Bean on the Job Scene: Cheap Hair Products and the Unemployed

Today I had to buy shampoo from Walgreens.  The drugstore.  AAAAAHHHH.  For the past, oh, 15 years I have been obsessed with fancy schmancy hair products.  I mean, it could have been anything from Paul Mitchell (yes in high school, this was kind of fancy) to Fekkai to Pureology to Kerastase…the list goes on.  Anyway, a few months ago I finally ran out of my shampoo so I decided to buy cheap from Target.  Well, to my delight, Target now carries Bumble and Bumble!  YAY!  So yeah, back in November when I might have mentioned that I had to buy shampoo from Target (and I LOVE Target for everything else–don’t get me wrong) it actually was B&B…

Cut to today when I’m officially out of B&B Gentle again.  I really had to bite the bullet and step into Walgreens and buy…wait for it…Herbal Essences.  I mean, I didn’t even know enough to decipher the good cheap from the bad cheap!  I do know this kind smells good though.  And I think I’ll live.  Although the next time you see me my hair will probably be completely frizzy and gross, even though it never looks amazing I guess.
I don’t think I can get a job soon enough.  Next thing you know, I’ll be buying Kroger brand deodorant.  Ick.

    ok, whatever you do – no cheap Kroger deoderant! Try Dove – its the least expensive and it works pretty good. As far a cheap hair products – try Aussie products – i think they are great! Especially if you are used to fancy products. 😉 this wont shock yoru hair as much as going to Suave or something. Dove it ok too, but the conditioner is too heavy, you'll have yucky oily hair. So, I need ot read more on this blog to cath up….stephanie (Mora)

  3. I realized plain Suave Cleansing shampoo and Head and Shoulders are some of the few that really wash the oil off my hair. Such a blessing for those of us who can barely skip a day of washing our hair! I always use Suave first and then Biolage, Kerastase, Nioxin, or whatever expensive stuff I have. I don’t even know why I still bother buying them since my hair looks just about the same with all of them. It’s all about the products I use afterwards.
