Instead of: Biolage by Matrix Hydratherapie Hydrating Shampoo, $17.19
Try: GVP Hydrating Shampoo, $6.59
Biolage is well known for their awesome hair products. And their Hydratherapie Hydrating Shampoo doesn't disappoint. This shampoo is made with botanicals, which is a fancy way of saying that it’s derived from plants. I first discovered this shampoo when my hairstylist used it on me at the salon. I was so impressed by how shiny and soft my hair was—I even had a random stranger come up and compliment me! My hair is never frizzy or static-prone after I use this shampoo even though I flat iron my hair daily. Like most salon shampoos, Biolage by Matrix Hydratherapie Hydrating Shampoo is on the pricey side.
I found that GVP Hydrating Shampoo does the exact same job for under $7! Not only does GVP's version contain virtually the same identical ingredients, it leaves my hair smooth and moisturized just like Biolage's version. The shampoo does have a slightly different texture than Biolage by Matrix Hydratherapie Hydrating Shampoo, but it leaves my hair feeling and looking exactly the same. If you're a fan of Biolage (and saving money), GVP's version is a definite must-try.
