Who doesn't want to take hair advice from celebrities? They have all this insider info and professionals working with them, so they probably know a lot more than we do, but sometimes the products they recommend aren't always in our budgets. So you know what's even better? When celebrities swear by a drugstore hair product. Relatable celebrities (and cheap hair care) FTW!
I'm always that girl who hears someone with amazing hair uses a product and I'm instantly Googling and ready to add it to my shopping cart — until I see a $50+ price tag. That's not going to fly with my low-maintenance, low-cost hair routine, but it turns out plenty of celebrities are just as low-maintenance as we are, and don't always drop major dough for beauty products. When you're spending less, though, you definitely have to be more discriminating, because not all of those products are going to have ah-mazing results, but that's where the celebrities come in. I mean, if they use it on their Hollywood-worthy locks, then it's probably worth trying. Besides, it's always better to experiment with a new product when it doesn't cost a lot of money, right?
If you want Hollywood-approved hair without a high price tag, shop these seven drugstore hair products celebrities swear by.
Going for that "wet look" hair? Try this product that Alexa Chung uses to get her undone, cool-girl 'do.
If you're looking for a cheap hair mask, Eva Mendes has a suggestion. "I put this in my hair and cover it with a shower cap while I do stuff around the house. Once I rinse it out, my hair is super soft," Mendes said.
Celebrities put their hair through a lot, so Reese Witherspoon knows the importance of taking supplements to help maintain her hair's health. "When I'm working on a movie, they blow-dry and curl my hair quite a bit. I take these supplements to keep it health," Witherspoon said.

Gwyneth Palthrow's secret to perfectly undone hair? Dry shampoo. “This stuff’s great when your hair needs a little spiffing up, especially when it’s starting to get a bit greasy. If you want to maintain a blow dry or don’t have time to do a full wash and blow out, this really does the trick. It gets right to the roots and brings back volume and makes your hair less oily," she said.
No one gives hair envy quite like Blake Lively, and she lathers up with L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo for voluminous and healthy hair.
