Default What is the most expensive thing you buy for your hair?

For me it is BRHG. Which isn't too bad. It used to be KCCC, but with just OK results I refuse to buy it at the price.

ETA:
I should say buy or bought for your hair.

You can answer both. KCCC still fits for both.

The most expebsive thing I bought was KCCC.
Still have not had a good hair day with it but for $30.00 I will keep trying. Love the Recoil, CJCCCC, JC N&S and BRHG and they wern't cheap either. But the best was the CK can't go a day without it!!
FRIZZ FREE with it!!

I guess I'd say getting my color done.

But, product wise, it's KCCC. But, as it works for me, and lasts a long time, I don't see it as expensive in the long run.

Deva conditioner and gel were my most expensive so far.

Conditioner. Specifically, the TIGI Oatmeal and Honey. I did just buy the Moisture Maniac, which I'm dying to try as a leave in/styler. It isn't really cheap either. I also have the Jane Carter N&S. It's lasted well over a year already, so I guess it's not that expensive since it lasts forever. I guess vitamins would be the second most expensive.

Probably my hair color. It's $90 every seven weeks.

Ojon restorative treatment. Around $30 a tub, but it lasts a long long time, probably 10 months to a year.

KCCC, but usage wise it's not the most expensive thing and probably doesn't come close to what I spend the per year on conditioners.

my haircuts are $45 but I only get it cut every six months or so...after that, my flat iron, everything after that is super cheap and barely counts in my opinion.

I thought this was so funny! Because that's exactly where I am with the KCCC. I know I should have bought a sample from kathymack, but with the universal raves on the product, even from other dry climate curlies, I thought I'd take the plunge. Even with dews in the 50's some days lately, I'm still not feeling the KCCC love.

For a single item it would have to be Mop Top Deep conditioner.

I agree. KCCC and KBB LL hair mask each last me about 6 months.

If I had to add it up I would have to say its Knot Today is the most expensive thing I put in my hair @ $118 a year.

I would have to say Herbal essences hello hydration condish. Not that expensive but since it runs out like THAT then I'm scared to work out the cost per year!!! Only 300mL for this super thick craziness I don't think so!

I'd say everything I buy for my hair is too expensive
CJ AFG was about 20 and my 2 conditioners that I use (AO ones) both come to about 20.
In US dollars, 20 is 36.86, eeeek!!!!!

Wow why is it so expensive? For both it was 20 (~$36)? Those that include shipping? With shipping (regular ground) off of AO's website it is about $27.

They are 20 bought from the shop!! So with shipping, I can't even IMAGINE. Everything is expensive in the UK anyway. It's annoying!

Definitely KCCC. I don't mind because it works for me and I have to use very little so it will last. What really causes my wallet to cry is my rampant PJism. I love to try new things. I'm trying very hard not to buy any more CJ (I have a bottle of Curl Fuel I have yet to really try).

KCCC is the most expensive and I agree --it works the best with either BB's FSGellee or my own but i still keep trying new products named here -- thank the Lord for Kathy Mack and her samples or I would be a lot poorer buying things that just don't work in large sizes.
