Anyone can grab a brand name hair care product off the shelf, after all, your hair doesn’t know the difference, right? Wrong, your hair health relates directly to what you use on it. Shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, gel – they all contribute to the frizz and split ends you swear at in the mirror each day. The good stuff costs too much and still you can’t be sure it is the right product for you. As with most things, it is the little-known brand that has the most to offer. Consider five of the best hair care products that fly under the radar.
1. J.R. Liggett’s Old-Fashioned Shampoo
It is a little different than what you are used to from a shampoo. The J.R. Liggett’s brand is actually a bar, but one that has all the natural ingredients hair needs to shine like essential oils. The bar shampoo is made without harsh chemicals and comes in a variety of formulas like tea tree and hemp oil for sensitive scalps or virgin coconut and argan oil for an anti-microbial treatment.
