The One Thing Fashion’s Elite Don’t Spend $$$ On? Their Shampoo

They may swear by $500 Rick Owens T-shirts and $325 rag & bone sneakers, but, according to, there is one area that fashion's elite secretly scrimp: their hair. More specifically, their shampoo. Thinking that it's all Kérastase this and Shu Uemura that? Think again. Many of your favorite street-style stars' lathers of choice are more Ricky's than SpaceNK.
Take Taylor Tomasi Hill, who apparently cares for her flaming locks with sulfate-free Joico shampoo, and jewelry-to-the-stars designer Pamela Love, who relies on Herbal Essences to tame her parched locks. Style stars: They're just like us!
We can't say we're surprised by the news. Drugstore shampoos have certainly come a long way, and we've been impressed with how gentle and nourishing the newer formulas can be. What's your take, readers? Do you like to save money on shampoo, or do you prefer to pamper your strands with more pricey suds? (Vogue)
Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo, $2.99, available at Target.
