If you’re on a budget but want to treat your hair well, it might feel impossible. You could easily spend $60 or more on ONE bottle of shampoo at a hair salon. The good news is that you don’t have to! T

here are products available at your local drugstore as well as at places like Target and Walmart that will do the job just as well. And if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that you can get these kinds of items even cheaper than the listed price if you watch the sales and match coupons.

Note: I’ve linked to each item at the CVS website, just so you can see more about it and compare prices, but that’s not necessarily the best place to buy each item.

Looking at reviews from various sites, plus beauty bloggers and personal experiences here are the top products that are way cheaper than their big salon counterparts:
