High End vs Drugstore Conditioners : Two that I Love

There are so many conditioners on the market at the moment I really never know which ones to try. As someone who has super thick hair, striking a balance between getting sleek nice hair and it turning in to a greasy mess. 


One of my all time favourite conditioners is the L'occitane Repairing Conditioner for Dry and Damaged hair. I love how natural L'occitane products are. 

'Made with five essential oils (ylang-ylang, sweet orange, lavender,geranium, angelica) and plant-derived amino acids, which help repair the hair fiber. Its smooth texture, enriched with sweet almond oil and vitamin B5, helps to smooth, soften and protect hair fibres.'

I have found that this really nourishes my hair and prevents it from tangling (something I have a really bad issue with). Another good thing about this product is despite having a price tag of £19, the bottle seemed to last me forever. Sometimes I think that investing in higher end products and spending a little bit more on them means that you use less and they last longer, rather than buying a £1 conditioner that lasts a couple of weeks. 

However, although I've just advocated a high end conditioner above, sometimes you don't have the cash to splash on something as expensive and need a cheap alternative. 
I don't normally use anything from Herbal Essences because in the past I felt that they left a slimy residue on my hair, but when I was moving house I needed to grab some affordable essentials that would 'tide me over' until I could afford to invest. I picked up the 'Honey I'm Strong' on sale in Superdrug for £1 and didn't really have any expectations of it, but I was proven wrong. I really love the smell of this product, it's not overpowering but still gives a bit of a scent. This conditioner does exactly what it says on the bottle, my hair felt soft and nourished AND best of all it didn't have that sticky residue that I had found before. 

I would absolutely buy both of these products again and recommend you to try them. BUT, I think that sometimes it doesn't matter whether you purchase a £1 conditioner or something that is more expensive, if it works for your hair then that is all you need.
