Every curly has a favorite conditioner. She may even have a favorite cheapie conditioner that is bigger than a glass of water! Is that important? Of course as we use tons of conditioner on these parched curls. Yes, cheaper and bigger bottles of conditioner are available, and most of them are full of fatty alcohols that provide slip. Price and size is not always an indicator of quality. Sure we love the plush products but most of us are on a budget and need our money to stretch. Struggling college students, mothers, the unemployed…we all have a sob story on why we need to be frugal and honestly it just makes sense. Why spend more if you truly do not need to. I love a sale but I treasure a bargain, so I’ve scoured the internet and the stores to rack up a stellar list of ten great conditioners under $10 and over 10 oz.!
