Your hair is your crowning glory, and some people almost take that literally by investing in luxury shampoos and conditioners. The most expensive types of shampoo and conditioners are often split into two types: medicated shampoos and luxury brands. Treatment cremes to one-of-a-kind ingredients (like actual meteorite dust) make these expensive shampoos and conditioners cost more than $50 for a 2-oz. tube. All prices are as of the date of this publication.
The most expensive type of non-medicated shampoos are those made with truffle oil. One example is the Alterna Ten shampoo with Arabian Frankincense, champagne grape seed oil and truffle oil, costing $60 for an 8.5-oz. bottle. Another truffle shampoo in the market is the Fuente, which costs $200 for a 3-lb. container. A bottle of Fuente contains only organic ingredients plus some genuine meteorite and pure diamond dust. Fuente claims to react well to different hair types with the same formulation.
Medicated shampoos are often more expensive than the regular types since they are made of specific types of ingredients designed to treat particular hair issues. Philip Kingsley’s Flaky Itchy Shampoo costs $79 per 100-ml bottle and treats dandruff and dry scalp. Kevis’ testosterone-treatment shampoo to fight male pattern baldness costs $219 per bottle, due to the bioengineered molecules in the formula, costing $60,000 per kilo. Frederic Fekkai’s Protein RX Reparative Shampoo costs $55 for a 400-ml bottle and offers intensive treatment for chemically-damaged hair.
Philip B’s luxury hair conditioner, named Russian Amber Imperial Conditioning Creme, costs $52 for a 2-oz. tube or $120 for a 6-oz. tube. This conditioner has 11 amino acids, amber oil and chamomile to help bring back the lushness of the hair follicles. Another expensive conditioner is the Lazartique Tea Oil Delicate Conditioner, retailing for $70 per 150-ml bottle. Lazartique also offers Bancoulier Oil Rich Conditioner, costing $70 for every 150-ml tube.
Luxury Haircare Sets
Several luxury haircare sets are available on the market, which often includes a shampoo, conditioner and post-shampoo leave-on creams. One example is the Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment KIT, costing $330 for a set of cleansing shampoo, post treatment shampoo, post treatment conditioner and a tube of QOD Gold treatment. Pureology’s Nanoworks Shampoo and Conditioner set costs $167.99 for a set of shampoo and conditioner in 8-oz. bottles. Its larger counterparts (33.8 oz. per bottle) cost $224 per set.
