Every time I forget my shampoo and conditioner when I travel, I dread using the hotel's selection. It doesn't matter how nice or fancy the hotel is; usually, they just end up making my hair look and feel blah. The point? Having the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair matters (in the relative scheme of the world). And luckily, finding the right products for your hair type doesn't always mean dropping major dough on a fancy shampoo (though, if that's your jam, you do you).
