Shampoo/Conditioner recs needed

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I have been using B&B Curl Cons & Cool Blonde for a while but hubby is balking at the $$$ Any other ideas out there??

I liked these especially because they were for color or curl, but their conditioning properties for me were fantastic, so that is my main priority.

I use different shampoos and conditioners I have three different kinds now...but the one I always go back to is TIGI Dumb Blonde (it isn't just for blondes...any color treated hair). It keeps my hair so soft and shiney...and I have looooonnnnggg hair.

You can get the big bottles on sale at Ulta for 2 for $25 and it lasts for ages.

My hairdresser just gave me Loreal professional intensive repair. This stuff is wonderful and smells great. My hair is so soft and manageable.

how about brilliant blonde by john frieda? i'm currenlt using brilliant brunette and i love it. smells great, leaves my hair shiny and soft throughout the day. i'm thinking brilliant blonde should have the same results

Well, when my hair was in good shape I always used Biolage Conditioning balm and hydrating shampoo. Then when I quit using chemicals I switched to Giovanni products, all work VERY well and are sulfate free. Now that it is crapola, I CAN'T use ANYTHING but Pureology Protein reconstructor and I never shampoo at all. I am going to try the aveda reconstructor next since someone recommended it to me. But I swear pureology is worth the price.

Kenics, I would be remiss if I didn't advise you to get the CurlyGirl Handbook by Lorraine Massey. It was recommened to me by Jen on AF(germany Jenn) and it saved me after the big hair fry incident of 2007. SAVED ME. Just go over and take a peek at Jenns Av. She has the most beautiful hair and if you love it curly, then that is the way to go. CHEAP and easy.

Kenics my hair is straight as a pin. But Nuetrogena triple moisture is a good everyday conditioner and shampoo.

hmmmm hair products are like my #1 priority. Maybe like cut back on lattes and use the extra cash on B&B
Seriously though, I'm not sure I could ever go back to drugstore stuff, but the best cheap stuff I've tried is the SunSilk line (with the really annoying commercials). We got a bunch of samples of it at my old job and so I tried it a few times and liked the results.
If you do have to switch to a less expensive shampoo and conditioner, definitely still splurge on after-shower products. I can wash my hair with Pantene and as long as I use my normal after-shower regimine (B&B Curl Conscious Creme + TIGI Curls Rock! + Kerastase Oleo Relax Serum) my hair usually looks as good as it does with the pricey shampoos.

Ugh, men are a pain when it comes to shampoos/beauty products. I say stick w/ the B&B if you really love it. I use Pureology and I think its def. worth the price.

I do love B&B, but the biggest issue was getting something that was conditioning for me, ecen though I still have a very oily scalp. soooo, after seeing some reviews, I ended up getting Redken Fresh Curls, and it is working out really well. If he can deal, I will switch back to B&B 1st chance, but in the meantime the F.C. is doing really well.

PUREOLOGY is fantastic, it will leave your hair feeling so unbelievably SOFT AND SILKY + HEALTHY, well basically all the essential benefits you're looking for! It's amazing for color treated hair and you only need a pea size amount so it lasts forever...it's rather expensive though...

Do you guys have Lush over there? They are an all natural fresh handmade cosmetics company?

I used their shampoo and conditioner a few years ago and I had people constantly commenting on how shiny and healthy my hair was... I was even in a real top notch salon and the haridresser asked me what I was using because my hair was so healthy and had such great natural shine.

This is what I used to use:

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics.
Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics.

Which reminds me... I really should get off my bum and get some more and start using it again.

There is Lush in the US too! In major cities mainly, but anyone can order online.

i like pureology hydrate, kerastase, and this line from my salon (they have their own private label with shampoos, conditioners, styling aids, etc.).

Sunsilk is quite nice for a less expensive line. The Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo is great to use once every week or two. it smells great and gets all the built up gunk out that normal shampoo may have left.

Buy Neutrogena Shampoo Shampoo, Anti-Residue Formula Online at drugstore.com

I agree with Kate, too. If you use great styling aids and a less expensive shampoo and conditioner, your hair will still look great. I have used Sunsilk to wash and condition then applied Kerastase Mousse Volumactive before drying and finished with a little bit of Kerastase Voile Protecteur (UV protection for colored hair.... it doubles as a shine enhancer too) after it was dry. My hair looked basically (almost) the same.

I would love to try the NanoWorks, but don't think I could ever justify spending $50 for a 10 oz bottle of shampoo. (Though I can get it from a local lady for wholesale price- i think she has the shampoo & conditioner for $60.)
Right now I use the Pureology Antifade - I get the shampoo and conditioner for $15 apiece.
