Weighing price, convenience and effectiveness, I lean towards organic personal care products. When it makes sense, I switch from drugstore brands to products with cleaner, organic ingredients. It's difficult to go totally orgainic, but we can be mindful to reduce the amount of chemicals we use in our beauty products.
Most shampoos will clean your hair just fine, but the commericial hair conditioners still work better than any organic conditioner I have tried. Plus, the mass produced name brands of shampoos and conditions are less expensive than many organic brands. If you wash your hair every day, it's worth considering how much money to wash down the drain. Will it be pennies, or dollars? Sometimes it's worth the extra cost, sometimes it is not.

I always return to the drugstore brands of hair conditioners. Recently I tried Ganier Whole Blends Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter Extracts. Forumulated with South Pacific coconut oil and African cocoa butter extracts, the shampoo and condition tames and smooths hair. It has a clean, coconut scent and leaves a shine. Thankfully, both shampoo and conditioner are paraben-free and gentle for daily use.
While it is always wise to check ingredients, drugstores are responding to customer demands for better, safer ingredients. For the price, effectiveness and hair sans frizz, I recommend this new Garnier forumula. Try it, you'll like it!
