ARE YOU BACK-TO-SCHOOL READY?!
With all of the rush to get ready for back-to-school, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement! One of the things that I love to do right before the semester starts, is going to the salon for a new cut, style, and color. Of course by the time that I've visited the salon, I don't have all that much left to actually spare when it comes to hair care products :/ I admit that I might spend a little more than I should when I go, but I've managed to find an awesome stylist who does a fantastic job every time I visit and I'd rather get a good cut that will last!
This also means that I've become a bit more creative in regards to the hair care products that I purchase as I can't devote as much purchasing power to them, BUT that doesn't mean that I have to be out of luck ;) For starters, I cut back on buying all of the salon products unless they are available for a really good deal or if I do purchase in hair products during my visit, I choose to go for the salon's own brand; it turns out they are a LOT cheaper and have comparable products to the higher-priced items and still provide excellent quality.
If you don't want to go that route, then there are other options as well! There were times when I was completely against non-salon offered hair care products, yet I've come to realize that might just be a little narrow-minded :0 Although few and sometimes far between, there are brands in existence- that even though they don't have super high price-points, their products are still made with high-quality ingredients and great things to offer! A perfect example of this when looking at hair care, is the brand got2b. Check out below why I think they're a great affordable hair care option- just in time for back-to-school :)
A LITTLE got2b BACKGROUD:
There's a reason why I LOVE this brand quite a bit- the minds behind this brand come from Schwarzkopf [now owned by the Henkel Group] If you haven't heard of Schwarzkopf, they are considered to be one of the largest and significant players int he world of hair care. They launched got2b in 2001 in the US and then in Europe and Asia in 2006-2007 and it's been highly successful for it's affordability and ingenuity as well!
TOP 3 got2b RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS:
MIND BLOWING FAST DRY HAIRSPRAY
This is HANDS DOWN one of the best hairsprays that I've used that cost me under $10 and I was truly surprised with the very first usage, that even with the hot Texas summer humidity- this product lasted all day! I love the can that the product comes in too and it works fabulously at keeping a good and steady misting spray that covers you hair well- sans the stiffness and stickiness :)
You can build this hair spray too so it really allows to control what type of level of hold that you want and I rarely find that type of quality in a hair spray that's so affordable. I'd recommend this product from got2b to any age and most hair types. If you're looking for a great back-to-school style like a fun blow-out, beautiful volume, or to improve limp or thinning hair- this would be a perfect choice.
MIND BLOWING QUICK SHAPE MOUSSE
When it comes to Mousse, I am not always much of a fan of the product in general- most of the products I've tried out were just terrible and didn't do at all what they claimed. Many mousses that I have given a chance on, turned out to be sticky or caused my hair to be "crunchy" and brittle :/ quick shape Mousse from got2b didn't have that annoying factor to it at all and that made it an instant LOVE for me!
As for the scent- it's great and one of the big pluses about this mousse too and it's something that really leaves your hair smelling and looking like it feels :) For quick pick-me-ups or re-stylings, this is a great product that won't break your budget AND it works better than most of the expensive brands I've given a try! Also, if you're getting ready for the first day of school and wanting a nice up-do or fab blow-out, then this is the product for you.
MIND BLOWING XPRESS DRY STYLING SPRAY
Want to effectively protect hair and not spend a ton of cash in order to do it? got2b's xpress dry Styling Spray will do the trick with not much effort! I'm fairly picky when it comes to styling sprays and have definitely tried the gamut of brands and approaches, but this product from got2b takes the cake at just around $7! It has a decent scent and does its job of providing good styling tool/heat protection and giving pretty shine :)
I really liked the fact that this one didn't leave any residue and icky feeling behind on my hands or hair too. I'd recommend this one to most hair types and all ages as a great product for overall heat styling protection or if you want that perfect blow-out style for this back-to-season!
