I've used mainly cheapie products and they work just fine. But now I want to expieremet with more high priced stuff. The biotanical DC, and rosemary mint co look very good to me. But I reallywant to try Qhemets,Darcy, and Carols Daughter. Sure Darcy isn't really that bad price wise,but all but my shampoo bars are things I can get easily on ground.

Ditto.. at least just a few particular items that seem interesting and potentially beneficial. But the frugalista in me won't let me go overboard. I've always used budget priced products, and I don't think that will ever change for me.

I cringe when I watch Youtube videos of girls putting a whole palm full of conditioner when that conditioner probably costs over $20 a small bottle. They probably get like 4-6 uses out of it.
I went the drugstore route a few months ago. Not only have I saved a ton of money, I realized that V05 Tea Therapy conditioners work better than just about anything else - and only for $1!!! Cheaper products also mean I'm very comfortable dumping 1/4 of the bottle on my head, which means my hair gets more moisturized and detangler is easier. Every once in a while I splurge for a pricier product (Jane Carter and KCCC) but so far the cheapy products (V05 and olive oil) are my best staples.

For me it is not about the cost factor. I look for quality natural ingredients and products that perform well for my hair. Just because it is expensive that does not mean it is going to work. Plus that also holds true for cheaper products. I would say I have a mixture of both. Now that I understand what my hair loves I can mix my own butters and oils.
