How Much is Too Much?

When I first started caring for my hair, my favorite product was Deva Care One Condition. I could wax poetic about how amazing this conditioner is, from the sweet orange smell to the luxurious hydration my hair received but the price for my broke behind was pushing twenty dollars. For one amazing conditioner. Picture me, a junior in college whose main source of income was from a part-time paid internship that was supposed to also cover rent and other expenses; I thought I was fancy indulging myself on this bottle that I tried to make streeeetch! I only bought the conditioner twice and it's still very much missed. But even now with some disposable income I'm not sure I could ever make this purchase again, unless it was some sort of deal or was on sale. It appears that my cap for hair products is no more than $12 for a single item these days, and even that I consider a splurge. I wanted to buy some Jessicurl products recently but I'll admit I just couldn't make the purchase because $14-$15 per product seemed like a stretch. I've mentioned before that I've found cheaper alternatives but I do miss my brands.

What's the most you'd spend on a single hair product YAIS readers? How much is too much?

  1. I don't like to go over $20, my ideal would be like $15 and under. I've found most of my favorite products, from shea moisture and oyin, fit into this category, so that's good.

  2. @ LaNeshe, Oyin is really good I'm actually thinking about restocking on their "Juices"

  3. I spend well for henna... I can't find locally, so I order on-line. I usually spend $20 for a few boxes. I do it because I feel that it is worth it. It beats buying a cheap box of hair dye.

  4. I don't spend more than $20 including shipping.
