What do you use to wash your hair?

I changed from shower gel to soap after the recentish thread about it - it's fab btw! And now I'm thinking that there must be something better to wash my hair with than the crap shampoo i currently use.

I considered trying the soap but there are opposing views online so i dont want to make my hair worse.

I've recently changed to a cheap shampoo and my hair is awful. Looks like I've dipped it in chip pan grease on day 2.

My hair is fine and flyaway and i have bad pompholyx eczema on my hands that is exacerbated with chemicals.

Looking for inspiration from you guys to make a change!

Plain water one day, cheap shampoo the next.

I used solid shampoo from lush whilst in Kenya and it was great. Usually though I use bed head shampoo.

I use Faith in Nature. Anything with dimethicone makes my hair look greasy.

I too was inspired!
I’ve changed to a conditioning shampoo bar (Amazon) - I’ve got shortish hair. I used a apple cider vinegar rinse this morning, but my hair isn’t happy at all.
To be fair, I am 6 months in from growing out a short pixie crop, so this may be part of the growing process.
I’ve had comments on how shiny it is, so I think I will continue for a few more weeks.

What is the thread about soap?
I use tresseme. It's huge bottles and I buy it when it's on offer.

Aveda colour conserve

I usually alternate between tresemmé (lasts ages!) and hello hydration herbal essences.

I’m a soap convert from the other thread too and was thinking the same thing. I’m having to wash my hair everyday now and wondered if I was missing something like the soap revelation.

Soap instead of shower gel thread

I use t gel for greasy hair. I feel it is the best for me.

Frith1975 Mon 16-Oct-17 20:47:38

I also buy the massive tres emme bottles.

Sulphate free.

ItsLeviosah Mon 16-Oct-17 20:53:23

Any of the branded ones you can buy in boots for around £8 a bottle.
(Ie Toni & Guy, Charles worthington)

I have thick long straight hair and using these keeps the colour and I only need to wash it once every 3/4 days.
If I use a cheap one from a supermarket I have to wash every 2 days

Also sulphate free shampoo for me too - Vichy Ultra Soothing.

The shampoo in the red bottle from LIDL:-

Identical to the L'Oreal one.

Aveda Smooth

I too am a soap user (although DP and I were doing it before that thread wink).

My hair is thick, dark and wavy - it’s quite nice, but it does get greasy quickly and needs a daily wash (can push to 48 hrs if desperate). I also have a really sensitive scalp - it seems to particularly hate fragrance and essential oils. It will itch and burn at the slightest provocation.

The best thing I have found by far is Sebamed shampoo. I get it for about £3 in Savers and it lasts ages. I use it with Simple conditioner. No reactions, no build up, and it gives me shiny hair (also seems to encourage the wave).

Silicone free conditioner. Part of the curly girl method.

MiriAmmerman Mon 16-Oct-17 21:05:18

This is the one (although, as I said, it’s cheaper in Savers):

Lidl cien tee tree shampoo and conditioner. My hair has never been in better condition.

Fiona1984 Mon 16-Oct-17 21:10:26

Lush solid shampoo. I don't use conditioner, just run a bit of R&B hair butter (from Lush again) through it while it's damp.
I have waist length highlighted blonde hair and it's not in bad condition considering. I try and wash it once a week if I can get away with it. The less I wash it the longer it seems to last. I don't blow dry it either.
