And what's your hair like please?

I'm looking for inspiration. I've been using Johnson's baby for years (I used to struggle to find something that didn't set my eczema off. It's been gone for years, but I liked how my hair looked with those, so just kept using them). Anyway, they've stopped making the pink conditioner, and I really don't like the replacement. So I thought I was probably too old to use baby shampoo I'd try something completely different.

Also, I'm nosy and like to know what other people use, and this is an excellent excuse for it grin

My only treat in life is Aussie Miracle, its always on offer and I love it!

I've got mid length blonde/brown hair with layers and a full fringe, I think its in good condition probably because I get it cut every 6 weeks.....

I used to use Redken All Soft, but found that the Schwarzkopf Gliss Total Repair is just as good - and smells better.

Frederic fekkai gloss one quite dear but amazing and can sometimes be found in tk maxx

I've fine, midlength, highlighted hair that was very out of condition (crunchy).

I've been using Philip Kingsley moisture balancing shampoo and klorane conditioner with mango butter. When I've a bit more time Ive been using Ojon rare blend conditioner and leaving it on for 20mins. Once a week I've been using Philip Kingsley elastersizer overnight.

My hair feels totally different, can't recommend the above enough!

Aussie range. Mid- long dry/ greying. It's fab and makes my hair really soft and shiny.

DesperateHousewife21 Tue 20-Aug-13 07:50:26

I've just bought Moroccan Argan oil shampoo and cond. I havent used it yet but am looking forward to it!

My hair is really fine and refuses to do anything, I started using Aveda Invati shampoo and conditioner about a year ago and love it. My hair looks better and feels 'thicker' for longer. It's expensive (about £20 each a bottle but that lasts about 6-8 weeks) and I use it every day but wouldn't switch!

Madamecastafiore Tue 20-Aug-13 07:54:25

Head and shoulders shampoo and also their conditioner because they make my hair super shiny and smell like apples.

Theironfistofarkus Tue 20-Aug-13 08:12:12

Another Aussie here. Really like it

Fairylea Tue 20-Aug-13 08:13:14

Aldi fruit shampoo. 75p!

I love it, and actually buy it by choice and not necessity.

BinksToEnlightenment Tue 20-Aug-13 08:47:27

Either Aveda Scalp Benefits or the volumising one in the light green bottle. I rarely use conditioner.

I have a lot of hair, but all very fine and lank. I have to wash it every day because of exercising, but ordinarily those shampoo choices allow me two or three days good hair.

All of the following are sitting round my bath and I use a combination of any of them: Aussie Mega, Aussie take the heat leave in spray, Take the heat 3 min miracle, Aussie Miracle Moist, Aveda Black Malva shampoo and conditioner.

My hair is fine and wavy (almost curly but not quite hmm) with a full fringe but there's lots of it, so it doesn't look thin, but can look flat if not styled properly. Occasionally I blowdry it straight but usually let it dry naturally and twist sections so I get curls.

I envy anyone who has the luscious hair that can get away with cheap shampoo. I hate spending £20 plus on a bottle ( not a stealth boast - a purse draining reality unfortes). I have long, fine white(age) blonde hair and it cannot tolerate cheap shampoo. Just bought Aussie volumising on a 3 for 10 in Boots and my hair looks horrendous - gave it to my sister and her hair looks brilliant and full of bounce... bitch.

goodasitgets Tue 20-Aug-13 13:16:37

Mine is curly and very, very dry. Never goes greasy
I alternate body shop ginger shampoo and l'oreal ever riche
Conditioner is l'oreal ever riche as its so thick, but I probably get through a tube every 2/3 weeks

TheHandbagOfGlory Tue 20-Aug-13 13:22:33

I have flat, straight hair which needs washed daily as its greasy, I use Tigi Epic Volume

That price on my link is great! I usually pay about £25 for a shampoo and conditioner set which will last me usually 7-8 months using daily so it actually works out cheaper than supermarket shampoo and its fab.

Smells of strawberry and actually gives my fine hair volume and its nowhere near as greasy. It's my holy grail shampoo and conditioner.

Yonihadtoask Tue 20-Aug-13 13:26:35

I use Naked shampoos and conditioners.

Currently on the Anti-Dandruff variety.


My hair is almost shoulder length and extremely thick.

TooExtraImmatureCheddar Tue 20-Aug-13 13:29:12

Aussie Aussome Volume. My hair is fine, light brown and bra-strap length. It does get greasy if it isn't washed every day.

Boosiehs Tue 20-Aug-13 13:31:27

I have fine, thin hair. It's coloured too. I use Aveda colour corrector. I've also used damage remedy and volumising. It's all bloody brilliant, but hella expensive. Last lot I bought in the US as its about half the price.

MissDD1971 Tue 20-Aug-13 13:38:06

Highlighted fine shoulder length hair.

I go from using Charles Worthington (for damaged hair) to other stuff. I tend to use the slightly more expensive ranges in Boots as opposed to Herbal Essences etc. Having said that when I did use HE etc it was quite good so maybe I should use it more. LOVE the L'Occitane coloured hair range but too expensive for everyday.

I did like a L'Oreal (monoi flower?) range which I got in France but you can't get it in UK.

what DOES work and I should do it more often is the deep conditioners - Everpure by L'Oreal do a good range.

Used to use All Soft by Redken too but went off it.

Leave-in conditioners - one in a pink bottle by Tigi are my hairs saviour and spray wax (Redken again) for styling. I converted my fashionista friend to spray wax. ;-)

The green herbal essence one. Love it and it smells great too.
