Which is better? We are told that salon brands are better for your hair, which is why they are so expensive.I have used both drugstore and salon brand shampoos and conditioners and...
I have noticed a VERY slight difference. Salon brands seem to make my hair feel smoother and softer...though drugstore brands do basically the same thing. I will go back and forth between salon and drugstore and be happy either way. So for me, it really just comes down to how much I am willing to spend. I will say that Paul Mitchells Lavender Mint shampoo and conditioner is my favorite. I love the smell and the smell stays in my hair.
One thing I will caution you against...DO NOT buy salon brand shampoos and conditioners from drugstores. I had a friend who worked at a salon and she also worked at Rite Aid, She bought a bottle of Paul Mitchell at Rite Aid and compared it to the same bottle at the salon. The color, smell and consistency was off between the two bottles. I always buy salon brand products from a salon, or somewhere that is an authorized seller such as Sephora or Ulta.
