Cheaper Substitutes

Ditch the Harsh Products


Go clean-n-clear, poo-free. Stop using those harsh chemicals on your hair. Sure, the marketing folks at those cosmetics companies want you to believe you can be as beautiful as their perfect models. But we all know we are just normal people on a budget. Read our information pages about some of those chemicals listed in the ingredients on the bottles at the store.

Natural Ingredients from your Pantry


Raid your kitchen pantry for natural ingredients that have vitamins, anti-oxidants and proteins. If they aren't already in the house, go to the produce section at the grocery store. Other cheap natural items can be found at your local pharmacy. Beware that the generic ingredients will be lower-shelf, partly hidden by the expensive brands that pay big bucks for premium shelf space in-your-face.
