I am a hair product snob...usually.

I have to admit, I'm kind of a hair product snob.

I would never let VO5 touch my hair, or better yet, Mane 'N Tail. I cringe at the thought that some of my friends would lather their locks with a shampoo that started out for horses. Mane 'N Tail claims that the shampoo is not just for horses, I claim that the shampoo is not for humans. Sick.

Anyways, I have blonde locks, so therefore, I am high maintenance. However, the following drugstore products are endorsed by this hair snob herself:

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner
I hate to admit it, but it is better than the $36 deep conditioner that now resides under my bathroom sink. I can't stress how amazing this stuff is. I use this product 2-3 times per week. Slather it on, shave your legs, and then enjoy touchable and hydrated hair. Your boyfriend can thank me later.

Car insurance....for your hair. This is basically the leave-in conditioner of the 3 Minute Miracle. Whenever I don't use the deep conditioner, I get out of the shower and use this. Who wants Dodge Neon hair when you can have Mercedes-Benz hair? Exactly.

I forgot to mention that all these products are so cheap a homeless man could afford them. That is, if they showered. I purchased both of these products for $2.87 at my local drugstore.

If these products can make my dry, bleached hair feel like a 100$ silk scarf from Hermes, imagine what it can do for YOUR hair.

Origins VitaZing Moisturizer

Origins VitaZing is marketed as a multi-tasking moisturizer that hydrates the skin and makes the skin appear more radiant. This stuff is by far magic in a tube.

I discovered VitaZing while I was watching Youtube videos. I immediately went out to my local Origins counter to see what all the rave was about. Let's face it, if we are going to spend $35 on a moisturizer, it better do what it says it is going to. After talking to the salesperson and testing it on my skin...I HAD TO HAVE IT.

I don't even understand how it works. It comes out of the tube white, but has tiny pigment beads that blend together on your face. It works on any type of skin tone. This product works really well under mineral makeup. I usually wear it under Bare Minerals if that's the foundation I am putting on for the day. Although $35 only buys you 1.7 fluid ounces, the product itself will last for quite some time.

Apply in the morning to a freshly cleansed face and head out the door. Who doesn't want to look like they had 10 hours of sleep without even trying?
