WALMART fans are rushing to buy an $8 dupe of a $28 hair essential.

Despite the price difference, the Walmart option contains almost exactly the same ingredients.

TikTok user Abby, who goes by @abbythebadassmom, recently shared her dupe find at Walmart.

The savvy shopper was previously a fan of Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray, a hair styling spray for color-treated, frizzy hair.

This premium product “magically transforms texture” and has “amazing humidity-proofing powers” according to the label. It retails at $28.

But Abby found a great, cheaper alternative at Walmart, Hair Proud, Glass Hair, Heat Activated Smoothing Shine Spray, which sells for $8.94.

She even demonstrated one clear advantage of the Hair Proud product when it comes to application.

“If you have ever used Color Wow Dream Coat, you know how hard it is to spray the product out of here,” said the TikToker.

“This one – such a better mist to get onto your hair!”

Although the dupe is nearly $20 cheaper, the bottle is slightly smaller.

Color Wow is sold in a 6.7oz bottle, whereas Hair Proud measures up at just five ounces.

But the bargain dupe is still cheaper at $1.79 per ounce versus $3.69.

“I’ve even analyzed the ingredient label, and they are almost identical!” said Abby.

We compared the ingredients list and discovered that both share many main ingredients and both include natural plant or flower extracts.

Hair Proud uses hydrating hyaluronic acid and is 100 percent vegan.

Abby’s fans on TikTok agreed that the product is a “true dupe.”

“Yesss, I got it on a whim at Walmart and it works so well,” wrote one.

Another shared: “That’s my one complaint about Wow, the sprayer. I ordered this dupe. Thanks for the recommendation.”


Hair Wow isn’t the only beauty deal fans have been going wild over lately. 

Makeup shoppers have been flocking to Target and Ulta Beauty to find a $7 concealer from Revolution Beauty.

Vloggers described IRL Filter Finish as “botox in a bottle” and a great money-saving option compared to pricier brands.

It claims to give 16 hours of full coverage with a soft matte finish, and there are 30 shades to choose from.

What makes this concealer so special is that it is enriched with VTOX, a vegan alternative to botox.

Another popular destination for getting glammed up on a budget is Dollar Tree.

We recently shared one shopper’s finds at the discount store including Wet n Wild makeup brushes with pink tips, and an ELF blush and highlighter duo – both for $1.25 each.

Plus, a deal on a three-ounce bottle of Coach New York Eau de Parfum for Women is available at Walmart – priced down from $112.00 to just $46.49.
