Compared to how obsessed we are with finding the perfect skincare routine or building that must-have capsule closet, many of us can be pretty lax about our locks. Maybe it’s a little dry at the ends, maybe it's not as shiny as Selena Gomez’s, but haircare is expensive and, besides, the messy look is in. But what if we told you that upping your hair game was as simple as a trip to your local drugstore – AKA the treasure trove of hidden beauty gems – where you’ll find everything you need at bargain prices? For results just as impressive as higher-end brands, you just need to know the right products to choose.
 
Let’s start with the basics: washing and conditioning. If the summer humidity is weighing your roots down, try a pre-shampoo treatment that absorbs oils and other impurities at the scalp, such as L’Oréal’s Extraordinary Clay Mask. Follow up with Herbal Essences Bio: Renew Volume Arabica Coffee Fruit Shampoo & Conditioner for extra bounce and volume. 
 
If your hair lacks moisture, there are many daily conditioners that will hydrate your strands without leaving product build-up from brands like Pantene Pro-V. For a real boost of life, try a leave-in formula like Garnier Fructis’ Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream – it’s made with argan oil for long-lasting smoothing and frizz-taming properties. If you’ve colored your hair, wash it with L'Oréal's EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner so that your dye job doesn’t fade. And for some extra TLC out of the shower, try applying a small amount of OGX’s Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum to your ends, designed to add shine and softness to dry, coarse or chemically-treated hair.
 
Now for the fun part: styling! For heatless options, Shea Moisture’s Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie is perfect for adding shine, moisture and definition to thick and curly hair, whereas Garnier Fructis’ Style Smooth Air Dry Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream insures that wavy or straight hair air-dries silky smooth. However, if you regularly use straighteners or curling irons as a part of your routine, start by spraying on TRESemmé’s Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray, whose lightweight formula will smooth and protect your locks. After styling, mist TIGI’s Bed Head Hard Head Hairspray over your fresh ‘do – this non-sticky formula will give your hair a long-lasting yet natural hold. And your new secret for keeping your blowout intact over a few days (or when you’re running late and don’t have time to shower)? Batiste’s Original Clean & Classic Dry Shampoo. Professional quality at a bargain price – the drugstore wins again.
