Deep ConditionerLess: Samy Beyond Repair Professional Intensive Hair Masque, $8.49
Luxe: Philip B. White Truffle Nourishing Hair Conditioning Crème, $75
Ingredients in Action
Shea butter, cetyl alcohol and amodimethicone help the budget conditioner smooth and rebuild your hair while amino acids, lavender and white truffle oil are the stars in the pricier product.
And the Winner Is …
The rich, creamy formula in the spend-y stuff will undoubtedly soften your strands, but the peppery, mineral smell could turn some people off. The cheaper formula's amino silicones are so durable, they might stay in your hair for a few washings, so you get even more conditioning bang for your buck.
