While we’re more than happy to pay too much money for a bowl of salad at lunch, shelling out more than $15 for a bottle of shampoo seems too extravagant. Lucky for us, there are now heaps of affordably priced drugstore shampoos that actually work for various hair types and struggles. Above, our recommendations.
