Top five totally affordable hair helpers
Feeling a little skint since the silly season? Me too. But unfortunately my hair doesn’t really seem to care about my current financial crisis. It’s sun-damaged, it’s split, it’s constantly tangled – it’s basically crying out for an intensive session at the salon. Which is something I definitely can’t afford right now.
And since I figured I’m probably not the only one in this predicament, I went on the hunt for some affordable hair products to help restore the moisture, shine and vitality to my currently lifeless locks. After surveying the girls in the bh office and some of our most trusted members, I came up with this – the top five totally affordable hair helpers, as recommended by you!
AFFORDABLE HAIR HELPER #1: Schwarzkopf Extra Care Instant Volume Powder
“I absolutely love this product…It's affordable, easy to use and makes my hair look instantly thicker and full of body.” – bh’s Bree
“My hair is dead-straight and flat against my skull. It doesn't move very much, and after a shower and once it is air-dried it flops heavily around my face. Then I came across this little beauty, which gave me hope!...I never thought that it could make my tresses come alive. I just place a bit on my hand and rub my palms together, then flip my hair over and rub it in to my scalp (must use on dry hair). Straight away my roots instantly have styling hold, where I have control of tossing it around to create a natural wind-swept look.” – von-nation
AFFORDABLE HAIR HELPER #2: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner
“My all-time favourite cheap hair prod would have to be Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner. If the coconut smell isn’t enough to have you completely obsessed, then the way your hair seems to magically behave post-use will have it score a permanent place on your shopping list. My hair has never been more manageable, felt healthier and smelled more scrumptious than when I use this dynamic duo.” – bh’s Liv
AFFORDABLE HAIR HELPER #3: L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil
“I am just IN LOVE and can positively say that after using this product I don’t have BAD HAIR DAYS and I have stopped tying my hair in a bun to hide my dry, frizzy hair. I have been showing off my lovely scented healthy, nourished, shiny hair fro the past week and I am LOVING it. ”¨These product really gets a five star from me and would definitely recommend it for everyone as it suits all hair types and it will be my must have product.” – MoonlightSak
“My hair and I have forever been at battle to somehow tame my frizzy, dry and damaged hair! My hair has been through a lot over the years of being victim to trends of dying, styling, sculpting & shaping, not to mention burning, straightening & curling to no end! So needless to say it has taken its toll… Instead of the oil turning your hair into an instant oil slick, it instantly soaks into each hair strand and I swear straight away you can notice the difference in touch & sight!
This golden gem makes me so happy! Nothing has ever come close to completely fixing my hair & I am so grateful for this product!” - Candyfairy
AFFORDABLE HAIR HELPER #4: Cedel Dry Shampoo
“It helps freshen up my hair on those days I don't have the time or energy to wash it. I also use it to give my roots that extra hit of volume when I curl my hair.” – bh’s Carli
AFFORDABLE HAIR HELPER #5: Dove Damage Therapy Heat Defence Treatment Mask
“I use this and it makes my hair so shiny and silky - you can really feel a difference! It also has heat protection built in, which is an added bonus when your hair is already a bit damaged from over-styling like mine is!” – bh’s Nat
“I LOVE this product! I had been using Redken's Intense Renewal Mask and decided to try this product when I had found it on the beautyheaven site & thought I'd give it a crack and haven't turned back. I find it just as good as redken & love the soft silky feel it gives my hair. I usually have issues with a lot of hair products and my skin breaks out as a reaction to the silicon and chemicals in the product - but not with this beauty! It leaves my hair looking & feeling totally repaired. I have normal hair with a little wave and in using this product, when I straighten my hair it holds the 'straight' a lot longer and leaves it looking sleek & fab - if your wallet is a little sore from salon products - give it a go!” – linseygirl88
