How cheap quality products affect your hair

The constant war between cheap quality products and salon trusted products has finally led us to wonder: What truly is the difference between the two? Are salon trusted products really worth the extra money? Do they perform that much better than cheap quality products? After doing some major research, we’re laying it all out for you so you can decide for yourself.


The cheap quality shampoos and conditioners we find at A store are appealing for obvious reasons. They’re affordable, convenient, and we love all of their different scents. But what makes them so affordable may be cause for concern. Although cheap quality shampoos do contain high-grade ingredients found in salon products, they only contain small amounts of them. They typically contain chemicals, which can strip your hair of its natural oils, essentially drying it out. They’re also known for diluting their products with fillers. These tend to make your hair feel super soft, but can also leave behind a waxy build-up. Basically, your hair feels soft but isn’t actually hydrated from within.

Luckily, more and more cheap quality brands are working to solve these issues. Many are going sulfate-free or swapping out harsher ingredients for organic alternatives. In the end, there’s nothing wrong with choosing cheap quality shampoos & conditioners—shampoo is shampoo and conditioner is conditioner. The key is to choose those with more high-grade ingredients and fewer fillers and chemicals.


The reason salon trusted products tend to be on the pricier side is because they are highly concentrated with high-grade ingredients. They often consist of vitamins, oils and minerals that are truly nourishing, yet too pricey to exist in most cheap quality options. These shampoos also include less fillers than their cheap quality counterpart, preventing that waxy build-up and instead, hydrating from within. Because these premium shampoos are more concentrated, you don’t need to use as much to see results.

In the long run, most would agree that you end up spending about the same, no matter which side of the coin you choose. The major difference is that salon trusted products last longer and contain higher amounts of quality ingredients that truly and essentially are better for your hair.
