Buying Haircare @ Drugstores is like Chinatown


Biolage Exquisite Oil ***Purchase at Salons Only (eg WalMart Salons)

Coming from a frizzy, curly-haired girl, with a heavy flatiron, and bright bleached strands (reference blog name), this haircare line is a MIRACLE-WORKER. The Shampoo + Conditioner smells amazing. It hydrates and treats my dry mane. The oil is a UV & HEAT PROTECTANT & did I mention the amazing smell:) It costs a bit more than your cheap drugstore brand but it is totally worth it! A little bit goes a long way. I have been using the Shampoo, Conditioner, Oil system for 3 months and still have about 1/2 of all the bottles left… the secret is knowing it’s ok to use a dime size product and add water to lather… KEEP READING;)


If you buy any products from a drugstore or supermarket that are also carried in salons… you are not getting what you paid for outside the salon. This means – if you go to Wal-Mart to purchase Biolage products and you buy Bottle 1 from the main floor and Bottle 2 from the WalMart salon, Bottle 1 will be WATERED-DOWN and Bottle 2 will be your actual salon product with heavily concentrated ingredients – lasting you alot longer!!
So now take all the money you save and go shopping at Neiman Marcus and show off your gorgeous locks instead of chasing a Chinaman into the basement of an abandoned building for a fake. Bottom line… stick it to the man, support local business or just a legit one, and don’t become taken advantage of, buy hair product from a salon :p

  1. Love reading your work Anna! Keep posting! We all know I desperately need fashion/beauty advice… And I can’t think of a better resource than you 🙂

  2. Thank you for the info. I was unaware about two standards of products. I will always buy at the salon in the future!
