Why have I only now discovered L'oreal hair products?!
I'm a kerastase masquintense user (for about the last ten years) and although it does work to make my thick frizzy hair softer and more manageable, I still found I had to follow it with kerastase serum and a careful blowdry/straighten to make my hair actually look nice (I have bad frizziness around my temples in particular which is a nightmare to manage). Have tried a whole load of other things including argan oil (= greasy mess or no impact depending on how much/little I used) but this was probably the best solution until I stumbled upon these two on sale about a month or two ago:
Is the second one silicone free? I've just finished using the shampoo and conditioner (I also found it hard to find them) and wasn't all that impressed. I am more strict about avoiding silicones than sulphates.
I've tried lots of silicone/sulphate free ranges and the best I've found so far is the Dr Organic Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner from Holland and Barratt.
Silicones coat the hair and build up on it, you then need harsh shampoos to strip out the build-up, the harsh shampoos also strip out the natural moisture so you end up having to use more silicone based stuff to smooth it again, they give the illusion of good condition.
