I don't mind paying for products that work. If the more expensive one works then that is what I want, but I have bought some expensive conditioners that didn't. The tricky part is finding the right products for my three girls. They all have different hair types. One is 3b, fine textured, the oldest is 3c and 4a medium texture, and the one I was just asking about is 4c coarse. So I have three different heads of hair and three different regimens.
