Budget {{Hair}} Beauty Faves

You guys I have to admit, I have a lot of beauty products. I like to try new things, which is why I have an ipsy subscription, but I also love finding good deals. One of the best places I find for deals on beauty products is Walgreens. They accept coupons, have BOGO deals, AND you get Walgreens Rewards points. These points add up, my friend. If you don't believe, go look at the hairdryer below and read how I bought it. Nope, this isn't an ad, sponsor, anything like that. I'm just a cheapo, deal finder.

L'oreal Paris Advanced Lock It Fine Control Hairspray : There are a couple of different options with this line, but my fave is the Fine Control spray. It has the perfect amount of grip and leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth, not crispy. Cost: $3.99

Conair Infiniti Pro Blow Dryer: You can find a variety of these blow dryers, all at a good price point. I love this one (the As Seen on TV one) because it has ion technology, which promotes less frizz, is ergonomically designed (i.e. not stick straight and unwieldy), and is quieter than other models I've owned (which Mr. Morning Cranky Pants appreciates). Average Cost: $29.99 (I got mine for free using my Walgreens rewards card!)

Conair Teasing/Backcomb Brush: This brush has mixed boar bristles, which distribute natural hair oils, and creates fullness without undue damage. Although, let's be honest, damage is going to happen when you backcomb/tease/rat your hair. It has a pointed tail end, which makes parting and separating hair easy. Cost: $3.99
Garnier Fructis Beach Chic Sea Salt Spray : For a budget buy this is totally worth it, but I do have to say it does leave my ends slightly crispy. I try to use it on days 3/4 of no washing, so that it absorbs some of the oil in my hair and gives body, so that I can braid or put my hair up and it still has texture. Cost: $3.49

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo: This is my all time favorite hair product. I use it every single day. I use it after blow drying my hair, then throughout the day for added body and fullness. It does leave a slight white residue, but that goes away quickly just by running my fingers through my hair or using my boar bristle brush. Cost: $4.00

What are your budget beauty favorites for your hair? 


  1. I just bought beach chic and I love it! It gives me waves that I can't get otherwise!

  2. I suck at hair. I do have that dry shampoo and use it on the days I don't wash my hair, which is really only Sundays. I have two looks: straight or pony tail. Haha. Classy, huh?

  3. I love pretty much everything from Not Your Mothers.

  4. i use zero hair products. the only thing i use in my hair are goody elastics LOL

  5. Awesome list ALL within budget! I love that these are actually reasonable enough that I can probably try them all. Great share Tracie!

  6. I just started using Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo and the Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. It has changed my hair routine dramatically! Plus they smell good. Since chopping all my hair off I just wet my hair down in the morning to get the lumps out, spray some of the dry shampoo into my roots while and then spray the sea salt spray in and use my hands to piece out my hair. Easy peasy!


I'm excited you're here. Leave me a message so that we can be excited together!
