haircare of a songbird on a budget!

if you missed my post on hair products that are worth the splurge, check it out here.

i completely understand, however, that often shelling out thirty bucks on a single hair product is not always reasonable. so i wanted to share with you some alternatives that won't break the bank. 

favorite hair products on a budget.
one. john frieda frizz ease glossing mist. i love to spritz this on after i finish styling for subtle shine. it doesn't leave a greasy feel and tames those pesky flyaways!

two.  organix moroccan oil intense moisturizing treatment. this is a mask you apply in the shower and leave on for 5 minutes then rinse. it makes my hair feel really soft and lasts forever.

three. loreal ever pure moisture shampoo and conditioner. this is my 'pseudo' pureology hydrate. it has a great rosemary mint scent and has the same basic effect as my beloved purple pureology bottes. it's sulfate free and great for color treated hair to lock in moisture.

four. organix moroccan oil. i use this every day on wet hair before blowdrying. it adds shine and locks in moisture. my hair tends to get dry from blowdrying/curling/straightening so it's a must have! 

five. john frieda frizz ease dream curls. i use this more in the summer time when i want to let my naturally curly hair take over. (the humidity is hard to fight). it's not a gel like most curl products. it's really light so you don't get the 'crunch' effect but is really effective at enhancing the curl.  

does anyone have a favorite 'drugstore' styling product for short hair to give it that piece-y, textured look? i haven't found one i love yet. i would LOVE suggestions! 



  1. moroccan oil is something I have to try! Thanks for the budget finds!

    1. yes! it's so worth it. and you only use about a dime size amount (depending on the length of your hair) so it lasts FOREVER! <3


thanks for commenting. i love hearing from YOU!
