Eliza's Inexpensive Conditioner for Winter Hair

Nobody likes the word "moist," but sometimes it's the ticket to awesome hair.

I don't know about you, but going home to my parents' house for the holidays is something of a walk down memory lane, if memory lane were the beauty aisle of CVS. My drawer in the bathroom remains filled with relics of ill-informed beauty purchases past. Tangerine eye shadow palettes. Loose pink glitter. And lip glosses — so many lip glosses. 

After arriving back for Thanksgiving this year, I hopped into the shower to discover a few massive pump bottles of Aussie shampoo and conditioner that hadn't been there before. I guess my sister had stocked up while she was home over the summer, which is good because I had forgotten to bring my own products. It was also a rediscovery of sorts, because I used Aussie's deep conditioner in college. And guess what: IT REMAINS AWESOME. (This is the audience's moment to be like, "No shit, Eliza.")

My sister wisely chose the "Moist" variety of shampoo and conditioner. Although "moist" is widely known to be the Most Uncomfy Word Ever, it did seriously good things to my hair, making it look fuller and healthier. This is particularly helpful during the winter months when excessive indoor heat and outdoor wind can make your hair a little frazzled. For near-Constance Jablonski levels of hair perfection, I would recommend you wash, air dry so as not to strip your hair of any moisture, then go in with some hairspray to mess it up. 

This stuff works. And best of all, it is so very cheap.
