favourite shampoo and conditioner

Recommended Posts

Definetely Aussie!!

The Volume Shampoo and the moisture Shampoo are amazing, a swell as the matching conditioners!

But don't let me get started on the 3minute miracle! It smells heavenly (just like all Aussie products) and my hair was never this healthy!

I've been washing my hair with Dr. Bonner's pure castile soap for a year now and my hair is always so clean, soft, and shiny! Dr. Bonner's is SLS free, so it won't strip your hair of its natural oils and that means your hair is super healthy and won't get gross and oily the day after. I can get away with not washing for three days if I use a bit of dry shampoo on my roots on the third day. It's really the best way to switch to natural hair care. Not to mention a 32 oz bottle, which runs you $16, will last for 3-4 months; and that includes using it as face and body wash. Love, love, LOVE this stuff! 

 

Many people take issue with using Dr. Bonner's because it makes their hair texture feel "dry" and "squeaky". That's because you have to re-balance your hair's PH after washing. All you do is get organic apple cider vinegar, dilute it half way with water in a spray bottle, and spray your hair down after towel drying it. This acts as your daily "conditioner". ACV will make your hair absolutely GLOW. I also use it as an acne-preventative toner. 

 

Top all that off with a once-a-week (for me at least) coconut oil deep-conditioning hair treatment and your hair will be so healthy and fierce you won't even believe it. My beauty routine has never been easier or more effective. Haven't used shampoo since switching!

I'm one of the people who have issues with using Dr. Bronner's as a shampoo  :unsure:

I love the stuff for my body. I use it everyday as a body wash and I dump a ton in my baths :D

 

However, it makes my hair smell rancid after using it in my hair. Also my hair has never looked dirtier after using Dr. B's as a shampoo o.O 

 

Trying it with the ACV sounds interesting, though.. and I shall try!! :D 

I hope it goes well because my hair seriously needs a treat.

 

Thanks, @@pokeballssohard

 

You are teaching me so much today!!

The ACV is absolutely 100% necessary for Dr. B' s to work. Otherwise, it'll leave your hair a hot mess! I remember one time when I realized-to my great horror- that I'd used up my ACV after already washing! I managed to salvage my poor texture wrecked hair with some coconut oil, but it still spend the day pinned up into a beanie until I could restock. Make sure it's the kind with the "mother" in it. That means organic, unfiltered; it'll look kind of like it has "dust" floating in it. Bragg's is the brand I swear by. It seems expensive at first, but when you're using it 3+ months later it'll seem more reasonable, trust me. 

 

If scent is still an issue after using the ACV, go with a different fragrance or get unscented. If you still don't like washing with Dr. B' s, the ACV is still great for your hair on it's own.

 

No problem, @@estefany I'm glad to share what works for me! Everyone's hair is different, so I can't guarantee results that match mine, but I'm pretty confident in this method for beautiful, sulfate-free, locks. Hope it makes your hair glow!

My favorite is TiGi CatWalk Oatmeal and Honey shampoo and conditioner. It smells amazing and it leaves my hair soft and shiny.

I like Acure as well...I don't want to spend too much - think I usually pay around $6-7 for a huge tube.  When my hair is in need of some TLC I use coconut oil as a deep conditioning treatment - don't need much but it makes my hair soft & shiny and doesn't have any of the SLS or other nasties that make me itch!

I used to complusively hop from brand to brand but I finally found something worth sticking around for. 

I cowash with Tresemme Naturals conditioner then follow with SheaMoisture Restorative Conditioner. I've repurchased these for the past year and it's awesome!

I've been loving the Julien Farel Anti-Aging Haircare line. Their shampoos and conditioner work great for my color treated hair. Their haircare is made to target your scalp and give it more nutrition and moisture. My colorist told me that their anti-aging technology helps restore your hair to its virgin state, before all the color treatments and hot tools styling we have used! I was skeptical at first... but then I realized that with a healthier scalp, that's when your hair can grow out more stronger and healthier. After dying my hair a few months ago, my hair was feeling dried out and lacked its shine. I've been loving the JF Vitamin Restore line, which is basically like a treatment for the scalp and hair (and those with colored hair specifically). I use this once a week and massage it into my scalp and hair as a replacement of my shampoo and conditioner and my hair has been coming out more shinier and softer. Even after my next shampoo afterward, I didn't feel the need to use any conditioner as my hair was all smooth still under water. Julien Farel Haircare is currently my new fav haircare line! :wub:

I have a few favorites. 

 

Shampoo:  Proclaim Olive Glossing Shampoo, VO5 Herbal Escapes Sun Kissed Raspberry Balancing Shampoo, SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo

 

Conditioner:  Proclaim Olive Glossing Conditioner, Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong, Herbal Essences Hydra Recharge De Damage Boost, Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser, Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Cleansing CoWash, Eden Bodyworks Peppermint Tea Tree Conditioner, VO5 Herbal Escapes Sun Kissed Raspberry Balancing Conditioner

 

I know, that's a lot, lol. I like to experiment with different products. My current lineup is Hydra Recharge De Damage Boost conditioner for co-washing. I leave it in for about five minutes, then rinse it out and follow up with the Proclaim Olive Glossing Conditioner as a leave-in. Afterwards I add grapeseed oil and a frizz-fighting serum to my hair and finish up with a touch of Eco-Styler gel. If and when I do shampoo my hair, which can be anywhere from a few weeks at a time to even a month or so, I use the SheaMoisture shampoo. However, I usually just shampoo if I'm going to deep condition my hair, whereas I co-wash every day.

 

In my pic all I've got in is the VO5 Herbal Escapes Balancing Conditioner. Since I was on vacation I'd just get my hair wet, slap on the conditioner, and I'd be good to go!

I'm going to second the Pureology recommendation. It's good stuff. But I have to say that my favorite is the Alterna Caviar line. It's a little expensive, so I don't recommend trying it if you don't want to make a commitment. If you try it once, you can never go back! ;) just kidding of course, but it is amazing stuff.

Alterna Caviar is nothing short of gorgeousness-in-a-bottle. My hair was drying and had split ends. When I went to the salon, I always got the lecture about conditioning (which I had already been doing religiously) and so forth.

 

Enter Alterna. I'd been using it for a few weeks when I last went to get my hair trimmed. I made some comment about trimming off split ends, as usual, and the stylist said, "You have very little, your hair is really healthy." And my reply was something like  :D  :wub:  :rotfl: -- or close enough.

 

A close second is the Beauty Protector line. I like them almost as much, and they're a bit cheaper than the $30 per bottle for the Alterna stuff. (Though recently HauteLook had an awesome sale on the Caviar shampoo; I got six bottles for about $60.)

YESSS exactly this!!! I L-O-V-E Alterna Caviar shampoo and conditioner, it really saved my hair back when I use to bleach it. Of course, now that I no longer bleach my hair, I find that I no longer need it as much. I now love and use Alba natural shampoo and conditioner.

 

Dang, how in the world did I miss that HauteLook sale! I was paying the full price of $32 per bottle. :o

 Actually, it was 3 for $60, (yay typos) plus three of the stuff for use with hair irons, which I never use. Those'll be off to swapland. They had the hair mask for about the same price, too. I got two of those.

I actually use cheap Suave Professionals lol. I really like it, works well for my hair and smells good. My favorite is Evolvh shampoo and conditioner which smell delicious and detangle my hair so well, but I'm too cheap to buy bottles of it lol.

I like Tigi Bed Head (red one) and Rich Pure Luxury. Tigi smells so good , but Rich makes my hair so soft! My hair is naturally so thick and they doesn't feel soft at all!

I love Amika and Macadamia hair products! They are all about natural oils, which is my number one thing when choosing a hair product. :)

I have ridiculously thick and curly hair. I've used and LOVED Mane & Tail. The smell isn't the best, but you should probably use a few drops of essential oil. It did wonders to my hair!

Do you have a all time favourite shampoo and conditioner?

 

I actually don't have one yet.

Shameful I know.

Personally, I hadn't one and the best shampoo or conditioner. but, I recently have found that different oils can help to protect the hair and to keep it health. so, now I'm trying to find something which will be suitable by this criteria, I mean the shampoo based on the natural ingridients with oil. I received a discount and I'm going to find something in the Internet stores. I will appriciate any advice regarding the store or shampoo (conditioner). thanks in advance :)
