Manhattan magazine has some listed a special conditioner as one of the new trends for 2011. We all know a good conditioner is the foundation to growing and maintaining healthy hair, so you can understand my excitement.
The Conditioner is by Philip B® and is called RUSSIAN AMBER IMPERIAL CONDITIONING CREME
On their website it states, the “healing L-Amino Acids with a Romanov-inspired blend of pure plant botanicals at clinical strength. All this, plus a tantalizing touch of Amber Oil” makes it so different from other conditioners.
There are great reviews on it. Before you get too excited, I took a look at the price. A 6oz size is $150. Yes, you read correctly that was not a typo. To give you a better idea of what 6oz size is, it is equal to 3/4 cup. Yikes!
While I believe conditioners are vitally important, this makes me stop and think about conditioners (and products) in a totally different way.
- Why am I outraged of the price of a conditioner, but I can pay the same price for a sew-in or great weave?
- How much are we really willing to pay for hair care and more specifically products?
- While this price seems steep, I know of plenty of people who spend almost this amount at the beauty shop or salon each month.
