Recessionista Beauty: Hair Products Under $10

We love hair products that provide the best shine, bounce and softness, as well as control for the styles we want. Of course, recessionistas know that spending a fortune isn’t always an option, but who wants to compromise on quality? Thankfully, many drugstore brands have fabulous products, and more pricey finds can easily be purchased in smaller sizes. The following is a list of our favorite hair products that are less than ten dollars each, and always leave us with good hair days.
