Dove shampoo for color treated hair, Dove Intensive Repair daily conditioning treatment, and It’s a 10 are the only products I use in my hair. My hair is really soft and shiny and I get compliments on it all the time so it must be working! 🙂

I use Pantene, but what really makes a difference is Organix Argan Oil. I want to try Josie Maran’s but it isn’t carried where I live and I have forbidden myself to shop online (it’s far too dangerous for my shopaholic tendencies). I had really dry, brittle ends before I started using it, but now my hair is like silk 🙂

I alternate Bb Color Support shampoo and conditioner with Bb Mending shampoo and conditioner, and then I put Organix penetrating Moroccan argan oil on my hair (about an inch down from my roots) and spray my roots with Bb Tonic. Comb wet. If you want the softest hair in the world, hit it with a oil+tonic combo. Now, anyone have any texturizing tips? I could sleep on my hair wet and it would be the most pin-straight super-bob in the world.

My go to products are:

Joico Moisture Recovery Balm
Motions Shampoo
Kinky Curly Knot Today
Olive Oil
Coconut Oil
Argan Oil

Its also about having a routine – I always deep condition and use a light oil to protect my hair from the elements

Shampoo: a good combing before a shower and lots of water in the shower.
Conditioner: A/G Re:Coil on the mid-lengths and ends at least once on the weekends, but I can stretch it out quite a bit. I might end up using it just once a month eventually.

And that’s it. My roots are a bit oily still, but that’s because I’ve only been on this for about a month, and it can take up to 2 to see a complete change in sebum quality at the roots. I probably also need to use a better brush every now and then to properly distribute sebum to my ends and remove the excess. A good combing with just my fingers removes a crapload, although I haven’t noticed as much lately unless I spend a long time massaging/combing.

My favorite haircare combination is the Nexxus Emergencee Strengthening Polymeric Reconstructor and the Bumble and Bumble Creme de Coco Masque. Honest to God, this combination after a few uses, which spans a few months since I only use protein treatments every other month, has seriously given me male model hair. You know the guys you see on the American Crew website and catalogues, etc… not that I’m saying I think I’m anywhere near that good looking… haha. But my hair is. :] I’ve never thought that people with short hair could benefit from protein treatments, but boy was I wrong. Fantastic duo!

I use aveda dry remedy treatment mask on daily basis and damage remedy treatment if I feel like I need sth richer. I love anything and everything aveda basically but those two hair treatments work the best for me.

Agree on the Aveda — except for the prices.

To get the full awesome out of Dry Remedy, you have to use the shampoo. It’s sulfate-free, and when you massage it well on your scalp and let it rinse through the rest of your hair, it gets your head clean and makes the regular Dry Rememdy conditioner sufficient enough for moisturizing. And they also just recently brought back the travel sizes. Great way to try it out.

Then I wrap my hair in a Turbie, use a wide tooth comb, apply Biosilk Silk Therapy from the ends up while still damp, and my hair air-dries frizz-free into its natural wavy self.

no matter what i use (shampoo/conditioner fluxuates based on brokeness) i always put on moroccan oil after i shower. i have thick, dark, curly hair that i straighten a lot and it works great. also when i’m broke i used l’oreal kids shampoo and conditioner, but when i have money i’ll typically use a higher end brand like fekkai.

I use John frieda’s ‘go blonder’ shampoo and conditioner which really pulls out my natural highlights and then I put my John frieda “straight fixation” heat protectant and straightening creme. I cannot live without these three things because they make my hair so soft and long lasting!

I change my shampoos all the time, as this seems to be the best for my hair, I always rotate between L’oreal professionnel, pantene proV and a silicon free syoss shampoo. the same applys for conditioner it’s either prantene proV restorative ( best conditioner EVER, not even kerastase products can keep up with it) or L’oreal professionnel vitamino color conditioner. After the shower I use biosilk serum on my ends. and eonce a week I put raw shea butter in my ends and let it sit for the night, this makes an incredible nourishing hairmask. that’s it

I’m not too fussed on shampoos but do use salon products, mainly so I can get the litre sized bottles (I got through a lot of shampoo). Since discovering Moroccan Oil, I rarely bother with conditioner any more but I use Moroccan Oil religiously, as well as their styling cream and shimmer spray. When I do use conditioner, it’s AG Ultramoist conditioner or their Fast Food leave in conditioner.

I use L’oreal EverPure shampoo and conditioner. It has a nice green, clean scent and it’s one of the few shampoos that doesn’t weigh my hair down. My hair is long and super pin straight and easily goes from looking glossy and straight to looking greasy, even though it’s not. This shampoo is great, even though it’s not expensive–I can walk out of the house without putting anything else on my hair if I want to.

I always switch up my shampoo and conditioner, I get bored easily and I like to try new things.
One thing I’m never without is CHI Silk Infusion. It makes your hair so smooth and easy to manage. I also love Its a 10 Miracle leave-in Treatment. I also love the Suave Dry Shampoo and Kenra Platinum Detangler.
For hairspray its got to be Shaper +!

Honestly? Whatever’s on sale :O My mum works at Shopper’s Drug Mart, so she gets an awesome discount and picks out the best stuff every year for my Christmas stocking 🙂 Just got a super-short haircut, need to do some serious styling product research.

I rotate shampoos to try out new ones, right now I’m using a semi-organic brand called Live Clean with argan oil. For anti-frizz, I usually do a hot-oil treatment before my shower.

I have really long, fine hair but lots of it! It never holds any curl or style, so I’m generally very unfussy about my hair. I use a ton of Tigi Bed Head products – so many I could never list them all – for achieving certain looks. Sebastian Shaper & Victoria’s Secret Hold Please hairsprays are my go-to for sleek looks that aren’t crunchy. I use Herbal Essences shampoos & conditioners, and a Kerastase leave-in (the name is escaping me, it’s in a seafoam green squeezy tube) that I blow dry into damp hair which is my HG!! Kerastase oil is also fantastic for smoothing flyaways, but only a bit as too much is Grease City! I use a really old but HG cermanic iron from Hot Tools, and an ion dryer by Revlon I believe. Finally, Batiste is my go-to dry shampoo!

Do you use anything to texturize/volumize it? I’ve been using Surf Spray but it doesn’t do a lot.

I use different L’Oreal Everpure/ EverStrong, kind of rotating through them based on whatever sounds good when I’m shopping for shampoo & conditioner.
And I HAVE TO have Frederic Fekkai glossing cream. A tiny amount smooths and adds moisture without weighting my hair down or leaving residue.
