Haircare Products – Read the Labels!

There is a little trick the makers of haircare products like to play on consumers like you and me.  In fact, it’s something product manufacturers in many industries do, and they count on the majority of us never knowing it.  What is it?  It’s selling what are essentially identical haircare supplies under different labels so they can charge more for the well-known brands.

Avoiding the Haircare Product ‘Scam’

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to avoid being taken in by this unscrupulous haircare product game.  All it takes is a little bit of your time the next time you’re in your favorite haircare salon or shopping center buying shampoo, conditioner, and all the rest.  Grab a couple of the cheap products – the ones you may never have even given a second glance.  Then pull down a bottle of your favorite expensive brand.  Read the labels on all of them.  Do you notice a lot of the same ingredients in the generic, ‘store brand’ haircare products?

Keep in mind that the order of the ingredient list not only tells you what is in your haircare supplies, but also the relative amounts.  In other words, the ingredients appearing early in the list are in that product in a higher percentage than those listed near the end.

Now look for ‘water’ in list on all the haircare product lists.  Don’t be surprised if you find that there is a lot of good ol’ H2O in that expensive haircare item.  You’ll find it in the cheaper products too, of course, but sometimes to a lesser degree, believe it or not!

So what does it all mean for you when shopping for these haircare supplies?  It might mean nothing, assuming you make a good living and don’t mind spending more for basically the same products.  Or, it might make you mad!  Either way, give the less expensive products a try (Suave is a good example).  You may be surprised at how similar the results are.
