Splurge or Steal?

overnight repair formula Splurge or Steal?

I feel so fortunate that I get to talk to beauty editors all the time. We talk about different ways to use products and different and exciting new things to try. I like to come up with ideas on how to spend your hard-earned money on what is going to be the best for you and your hair.

I want to go over a few products that I think you should either Splurge or Steal. I believe there are certain things that you should splurge on and others you could purchase cheaper. Here are my top picks for both, and if I had to choose one or the other, what my final call would be.

It’s fun as a hairdresser to play with different products. DailyMakeover.com is a brilliant way to get reviews on products before you try them out.

Tip: If you need to clarify your hair, instead of buying a clarifying shampoo, you can just mix a little vinegar in your favorite shampoo. The vinegar will remover
the toxins right out.

Remember to splurge on yourself, you are worth it!

And don’t forget: Beauty Is Individual.


As a celebrity hairstylist, I often receive samples of new products directly from beauty brands to test out. Any product I mention in this blog is one that I’ve tested out myself, in accordance with Daily Makeover’s Editorial Ethics Pledge.
