I tend to avoid silicone in my hair care when possible but sometimes my hair just craves it. It craves the moisture it provides and it craves the weight as silicone seems to weight my hair down and prevents frizz. I avoid it because it does caught major buildup and sometimes breakage. I also do like how much lighter and cleaner my hair feels without it.
But like I said sometimes my hair craves it and some of my picks in this post do contain silicone! That being said, when I am in the mood for silicone the drugstore hair care world has plenty of ’em!
Here are 7 drugstore hair care products I’m digging lately.
First off, I’m not an Aussie lover! I dunno why but their products just perform great for me but I am loving these three products at the moment.
1. Aussie Miracle Curls Leave-In Conditioner $4.99
This lightweight leave-in conditioner reminds me of my beloved Carol’s Daughter 4-in-1 Combing Cremes at a way cheaper scale. It’s a really nice treat to detangle my hair and add nice hydration. The formula is a bit runnier than Carol’s Daughter and the moisture factor is a little lighter but all in all, it’s a nice cheap way to add a bit of moisture to my hair.
2. Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner $3.43
Mist this guy in and it’ll make combing through your hair a lot more easier while giving hair shine.
3. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Curls Deep Conditioner
My hair is typically like straw after I’ve been in the pool and that’s when I head for the deep conditioner. I’ve been using this guy for a bit now! It has a generic, plastic-y coconut fragrance I actually like, don’t judge 😉 and it’s very rich, thick, and creamy but still rinses out easily. It leaves my hair super soft as well which is the main reason I like it!
Next up on my list is Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner ($12.99) lately. It was created for textured hair but it does a great job with my drier, frizzier hair none the less. The fragrance is sweet and slightly tart which I love and it absorbs in a snap while leaving my hair feeling very moist! It also doesn’t cause excess build up which is a plus!
Of course, Shea Moisture has to make the cut here! Lately, I’m all about their rather awesome silicone-free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment ($8.99)! You can spray it directly into your hand and smooth it into your hair or you can go ahead and mist it right on! Beware though the mist shoots out heavy! It detangles, adds moisture, and refines curls quite nicely.
Oh my god you have no idea how saddening it is I can’t use Shea Moisture Detox & Refresh Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner ($9.98) daily. I LOVEEEEEEEEEE this stuff but my hair hates it haha. I use this every two weeks to rinse out any build up or gunk my hair has accumulated. It’s a fantastic purifying duo! It makes my hair super, squeaky clean plus it smells like a stick of mint gum! And it gives my scalp a cool, tingling feel when I use it. But sadly, it makes my hair like straw! I typically use it as a purifying treatment only as I can’t afford to use it in a daily routine! If you have an oily scalp or hair this might help ease those issues!
