Dollar Store Finds
The other day I went to check out the dollar store because I've been noticing lately that sometimes they have brand name items you could find at Shoppers or Walmart, but of course they are only $1 or $2. Even with my discount at work, it's still more expensive than that.
So here's a few things I picked up at the dollar store.
1. John Frieda Weather Works Shampoo and Conditioner - it's funny because I was just recently thinking how I wanted to try this stuff. My hair is super frizzy in winter-time and this is supposed to combat that. I've used it twice so far, but it doesn't seem to be any different than other shampoos I have used. Maybe I am just not a good hair person, because I really don't notice much of a difference with each shampoo that I use, it seems all the same to me, my hair is always frizzy in this type of weather, and it always gets greasy looking pretty fast.
2. Random generic body wash in Vanilla Pear scent. I recently got an Avon body wash and can't stand the smell of it. This one definately smells better, and its only $1 and it's about twice the size.
3. Charles Worthington Wave Enhancing Spray - to spray on your hair when it's when to help accentuate your natural waves. Tried this yesterday, and I think it's too soon to tell. Need to try a few more times before I make a verdict.
4. Piggy containers...um, so these were definitely in the baby section, but they were just too cute, I had to buy them.
It's worth checking out your local dollar stores to see what they have! I know most of the stuff is probably crap, but these are brands that you would normally find in a drug store for like $6-7 dollars each. Even if they were to go on sale, they would rarely, if ever be as low as $2.
