A good flat iron with plates made of materials that are better for your hair can be very expensive. Walking into Ulta, you’re sure to find more choices of flat irons than you know what to do with. But if you purchase one with titanium or tourmaline plates, will pay full retail price for it.
Mosey on over to one of the stores mentioned above, and you can get a flat iron with the same plates, for half the price, maybe less. They carry a range of different sizes and colors as well. And don’t misinterpret this to mean that you have to settle for a knock-off or generic brand. Not at all. They carry the good stuff. Most of the more popular brands can be found on their shelves.
TIGI Bedhead Products
TIGI Bedhead products are very good products. If you’ve ever looked into purchasing them, you know that they’re also not cheap. Their conditioner is a fan fave. Since they pulled it from their line and then began producing it again, it can be somewhat hard to find.
When you do find it, you will pay much more than you would for most other conditioners. That is unless you hit up the outlet department stores. I’ve always been able to find their moisturizing conditioner and their other products for a reduced price. If you are a fan of TIGI the brand, you should definitely look into buying the products from these retailers.
CHI Hair Styling Products
CHI is another brand that makes great products and tools that come with a matching high price point. From their super popular heat stylers to their serums and heat protectants, they are a brand found under many bathroom sinks and in many salons.
Their silk infusion serum comes in a very, very small sized bottle that holds less than 3 ounces of product. And even with that little product, it can cost upwards of $20.00, depending on where you purchase it.
The product does perform well and it holds up to the claims the company makes about what it does. Being able to find it for half that price is still not the most advantageous cost/benefit purchase you could get, but if you look at just the cost savings compared to a full priced purchase, you can see the huge difference.
Hopefully, this helps ease the strain on your purse when it comes to high-cost hair items and products.
