“Not to spoil this post, but I liked most of these products
so f*#! the wallet, am I right?”
Let’s jump right into this empties post. Because obviously, if you’ve read my intro above, you already know a lot of these were hits for me. This means we are coming a long way as far as products that actually work. Or, I am incredibly weak and give into the packaging and scents of them. Jk jk I’ve listed the five products below that I have finished and some refreshing opinions and feedback on them. I hope you enjoy and maybe find some new products that tickle your fancy.
- Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde conditioner – retails for $19.00
This stuff is freaking amazing. I love it. It’s as far as I’ll go into “high end” hair care. Seeing as it is almost $20 does seem steep when you compare it to Pantene or TRESemme, but I cannot get away from this now that I have given it a shot. My hairdresser recommended this and the shampoo to me, and I have since repurchased both.I personally like that it feels a little more luxe on my color-treated hair, but without an incredibly high price tag. And gurl, it’ll last you! I purchased my first bottle of conditioner last June and I’m just now writing about it running out… granted, I like to incorporate conditioning masks/treatments so I am not using this constantly but, like, still. This bitty will last you awhile.
Would I repurchase? Again and again.
- Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde shampoo – retails for $18.00
I have all of the same feelings for this shampoo as I do for the conditioner. Love the set, love them together. It’s a win/win for me. The shampoo surprisingly lasted the same amount of time as the conditioner, so I vouch that this is well worth your hard-earned DOLLAS HONEY.
Would I repurchase? Yes ma’am.
- Marc Anthony Deep Repair Aloe Vera Jasmine conditioning treatment – a single treatment retails for $2.99
Okay so this conditioning treatment is nothing to call home about. I feel very much so that it lays on top of my hair and doesn’t truly nourish it. Could be my hair type, but it is not soaking up this product, leaving me with hair that does not feel conditioned. Which, is kind of the opposite effect I’d like to be left with after using a conditioning treatment. If you’re looking to spend $2.99 for a WORTHY conditioning treatment, check out the Matrix Total Results Multi-tasking Hair Mask for $5.00 (you can get two uses out of this). It is so damn good and will give you the instant results you are looking for: fresh, healthy, undamaged hair.
Would I repurchase? I think it’s pretty obvious lmao – NAH.
- Beauty Pin-ups Fearless Hair Rescue treatment – 16 oz retails for $25.99 or 6 oz retails for $19.99
This one pains me. BECAUSE I AM OBSESSED, and because it’s not all that affordable. I squeezed every last ounce out of this baby – and it was just a sample I received in Ipsy. An incredible one, at that. I freaking loved this stuff. Completely opposite of the Marc Anthony hair treatment, this completely absorbed into my hair and left me with the instant results I was in search of. Honestly tho, if you’re in love with this product and don’t want to spend $26 on a hair treatment, look at the difference in price for an extra 10 oz. of this stuff – completely worth it.
Will I repurchase? That’s a hard question, but truly, I think I might. At the very least, it’s going on a birthday wish list. I’m a firm believer that you gotta invest in what works for you.
- Batiste dry shampoo in Blush scent – 13.46 oz. size (large) retails for $7.99-$9.99 at Marshalls/TJ Maxx depending on when you go
Hands down the best bargain when buying this dry shampoo (even tho it is already considered “drugstore price”) is TJ Maxx or Marshall’s. Idk whether they get certain scents in bulk but I can pretty much count on stocking up anytime I go to the Marshall’s in center city, Philadelphia, and I feel like that’s saying something considering there are a shit ton of people buying them out of house and home.But this product, tho, is the cat’s pajamas. I will continue to buy this over and over again. It does SUCH an incredible job at masking the oils produced in your hair after going a few days without washing it. The blush scent isn’t particularly my favorite, but it fades enough to where I don’t notice it throughout the day. This product gives such a refresh to my hair/look and allows me to wash my hair fewer and further in between, allowing it to be as healthy as possible without the constant stripping of its natural oils when I wash it.
Will I repurchase? Already have!
Soooo 4/5 repurchases?! That’s a pretty successful empties review if I do say so myself. However, not so successful on the wallet. Gotta get back to earning those Ulta points so I can cash in on some of these as a T R E A T. Anyways, thanks for hanging out and reading up on these hair products! What are your thoughts? Have you tried them as well? Let me know in the comments below.
