Hair - Fine, frizzy, prone to damage (can't heat style more than 2x weekly or bleach more than 2x year), hates protein (both hair and scalp), greasy ends, dry roots. Needs to be washed daily.
Best shampoo - Philip Kingsley No Scent No Colour Best Conditioner - Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme
I'm sensitive to SLS but despite that this shampoo gives me great results and protects my scalp. It must be low SLS. I used to use SLS-free shampoos and liked the Pureology Hydrate range, especially, but I think they change the formulation as the results weren't as good.
Last week I bought the tressemme [un]done shampoo and conditioner and my hair has never felt so soft! Will definitely repurchase the conditioner but want to find a sulphate free shampoo instead. But if you are not worried about sulphates then I would recommend. My scalp is normal, my hair is incredibly thick, very long, wavy and very dry
Thick long hair. Weighs a ton and takes forever to dry. In fairly good condition however some split ends from the straightening and blow drying.
I tend to wash every other day but can get away with longer if I curl it.
I struggle with any product in my hair, find it weighs it down even more so I use Vosene frequent shampoo and the most basic conditioner I can find. Usually asda's value brand. It seems very light to me and doesnt clog my hair up. My hair always looks very shiny and I do recieve compliments on it.(my hair is my only good feature) I always put it down to the vosene.
I've used vosene for years and stock up on it as it's not that common. If I'm forced to use different shampoo I immediately notice a difference in my hair. It goes so full and limp.
I use redken colour extend. No sulfates so good for my fine, dry coloured hair. The conditioner is moisturising enough to sort the lengths out but not make the top greasy or weigh it down. Have used it for over a year now and have never had any loyalty before!
The ridiculously-named Molton Brown Plum-Kadu Glossing Shampoo. I discovered it in a posh hotel, and liked it enough that I immediately went and bought a whole bottle (costing £18 FFS) of my own. Not the conditiouner, though, that's not as good - prefer L'Oreal Extraordinary Oils leave-in creme for that.
Fine, shoulder length highlighted hair. Some greys coming through. Sensitive scalp. HG is Joico Color Endure shampoo and conditioner. Maintains colour, gives body, hair feels good. I buy litre bottles from eBay - much cheaper, last AGES. Wash my hair every two or three days as advised by my hairdresser.
I have a very itchy sensitive scalp which even prescription shampoo did not sort out. The Philip Kingsley itchy flaky range is wonderful, I buy that shampoo now it's expensive but worth it not to have an itchy head all day.
As for conditioner, I like the body shop banana conditioner, an oldie but a goodie!
Long wavy hair, tendency towards greasy roots, itchy scalp and dry ends if I'm using the wrong stuff.
All of this almost entirely resolves with L'Oréal Extraordinary Clay shampoo and Extraordinary Oil conditioner. I always, always go back to them. Bought some Garnier stuff as it was on offer and I noticed my head got itchy.
