The Pro Guide to Drugstore Buys

DRUGSTORE-HAIR-PRODUCTS

When you’re ballin on a budget, great hair def doesn’t come as easy at it seems. Below, 11 pros weigh in on their favorite drugstore buys.


 Pantene-Airspray

PANTENE AIRSPRAY

Pantene Airspray is my favorite drug store product. It’s the first alcohol-free aerosol hairspray so it doesn’t leave hair sticky or stiff, and is so flexible that it not only sets the look, but allows women to easily play with their hair.

 Tresseme-Heat-Tamer

TRESEMME THERMAL CREATIONS HEAT TAMER

I don’t always rely on the most expensive products. One of my all time favorite drug store finds is TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer. I always suggest using a heat protectant whenever using styling tools such as a blowdryer, curling iron, or flat iron. This product helps protect hair from heat, enhances hairs flexibility, and also aids in taming frizz which is a huge PLUS for me as I love finishing up any haircut with a lasting style for a client.

 Batiste-Dry-Shampoo

BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO

Batiste dry shampoo!  Absorbs oils without leaving the hair looking too chalky and gives good volume! ??

Elnett Hairspray

L’OREAL ELNETT HAIRSPRAY

I love Loreal Ellentte hairspray most every hairdresser I know uses this on the set, best part is  you can get it at most  drugstores and supermarkets it has a great hold and is easy to brush out leaving your hair in place.

Cervando Maldonado, Goddard and Bragg Salon @cervandohair

I love the L’oreal Elnett hairspray in the gold packaging. It’s a strong workable hairspray and the packaging adds a touch of sparkle to any hair kit!

Pssst-Hair-Powder  

PSSSST HAIR POWDER

Psssst Hair Powder is the one that saves me every time! It’s available pretty much anywhere. I use it for 2nd/3rd/4th day hair to restore freshness and create lived-in texture. It helps me work up a base for a sexy top knot or a perky ponytail too! I spray at the roots, holding the can 8 inches away from scalp. While spraying I use the softer part of my finger tip to rub into the scalp. Secondly, I take a paddle brush (like a Mason Pearson or Altesse) and brush through from root to end. If you want to keep the wave – just spray at roots and rub in without brushing through. Voila!”

 Castor-Oil

CASTOR OIL

Always castor oil. It’s great to use to finish a style- adds shine and tames fly aways. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly. You can also load it on the hair for the wet look.

MG217-Shampoo

MG217 SHAMPOO

MG217- shampoo for psoriasis and eczema!!!! It’s the only one that works and is bought at the drug store!

Loreal-Paris-Root-Cover-Up 

L’OREAL PARIS ROOT COVER UP

I have two picks. My first is the new L’Oreal Paris Root Cover Up. It comes in 6 colors and is amazing for concealing greys in-between salon visits! It really works. Covers the greys completely and don’t feel sticky once dry. A lot of my clients have started using it and its a real life saver in a pinch!

 Scunci-No-Pull-Hair-TIe

HAIR ACCESSORIES

No pull hair ties and colored Bobbi pins are the best!

Tim Duenas, 901 Salon @timduenashair

  OGX-Coconut-Oil

 COCONUT OIL

Coconut oil from any market. It’s good for the brain, body, skin and hair. Nourishes the outside cuticle layer of the hair leaving it hydrated and silky.
