Five Great Hair Conditioners on a Budget

1. Pantene Pro-V Highlighting Expressions Daily Color Enhancing Conditioner

Pantene Conditioner

It’s one of the least expensive conditioners for color out there. Most color safe conditioners only protect your hair, but this one actually enhances your color as well. Plus, it’s the brand I use every day because it’s so inexpensive and works really well.

Where to Get It: $5.99 at local drugstores

2. Giovanni Root 66 Max Volume Conditioner

Giovanni Conditioner

Why It’s Awesome: This is brand that not many have heard of but it’s great because it has a lot of organic ingredients that won’t dry out or ruin your hair. It’s sulfate free and is also very light so your hair doesn’t feel weighed down with products after you’re finished drying it.

Where to Get It: $8.49 at local drugstore

3. Dove Heat Defense Therapy Conditioner

Dove Heat Defense Conditioner

Why It’s Awesome: How many times do you flat iron or blow dry your hair without protecting it first? This shampoo is great because it works as a 2-in-1 cleaning your hair but also adding in a heat protectant. It saves a step and saves you money from buying a separate spray to apply to your hair before curling or straightening it.

Where to Get It: $4.75 at local drugstores

4. Herbal Essences Hello Hydration 2-in-1 Moisturizing

Herbal Essences Shampoo

Why It’s Awesome: One of our favorite brands here at TBF, this particular shampoo is great for dry or damaged hair in desperate need of some hydration.

Where to Get It: $7.49 at local drugstores

5. Burt’s Bees Hair Repair Deep Conditioner

Burts Bees Hair Repair

Why It’s Awesome: This product uses natural ingredients to treat dry and broken hair. Apply it after your shower while your hair is still wet and leave it in for the full effect.

Where to Get It: $5.70 on and other retail stores.
