- Hairstyles, Cool Cuts, How to Style Your Hair
If you are looking for the best shampoo for your "normal hair", look no further! While shopping at the mall, I stopped into one of my favorite stores: Victoria's Secret. I love all Victoria's Secret products and I spotted some shampoo from across the room. Since I love all of the products, I figured why not try the shampoo. Little did I know, I was finding the most exquisite shampoo ever made! It is called "So Sexy Balance" Strong and Shiny Shampoo for normal hair. There's also shampoo for damaged and colored hair, but I cannot give an accurate opinion on these since I have not used them. The normal shampoo mentioned above comes in a 300 ml/ 10 fl oz. bottle. The price tag on the shampoo is $12.00, but everytime I have went in there was a special of any 3 of the So Sexy hair products for $25.00. So, this works out to be about $8.3333......, but let's round that to $8.00. There are a lot of people who would never dream of spending that much on one litte bottle of shampoo, but it's worth every penny! First, it only takes a small amount to lather up your locks. So, you don't have to buy it as often. Trust me, I have long hair, so it usually takes me A LOT of shampoo to feel clean. With Victoria's Secret So Sexy shampoo, it does not.
The fantastic smell is another perk of this amazing shampoo setting it apart from other shampoo on the market. Your hair smells fantastic all day long. I can even smell my own hair all day, which usually doesn't happen. I just went to get my hair done a few days ago and the stylist commented on the wonderful aroma coming from my hair.
Also, when you use Victoria's Secret So Sexy shampoo, your hair is soft, silky, and shiny. It feels absolutely amazing! I dye my hair so it is somewhat damaged, but you would never know after using this product! I am sure any other shampoo from Victoria's Secret is just as good, but I can't give any opinion about any product I haven't used. I am assuming, however, that the shampoo for colored and damaged hair is just as good as the shampoo for normal hair.
Here are the ingredients. Please note how many ingredients there are so you can see the difference between this shampoo and the $1.00 shampoo I will mention later.

I also decided to try the cheapest shampoo I could find. I found this shampoo at a Dollar Tree for $1.00. I can see why it was only $1.00! I was better off to not wash my hair at all! It was so terrible! To be honest, my hair felt more greasy than it did before I washed it. I decided to take a look at the ingredients. You can see why it is cheaper and less effective just by looking at the size of the ingredients list.
- Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
- Cocomidopropyl Betaine
- Cocamide DEA
- Sodium Chloride
- Hydrolyzed Collagen
- Balsam Canada
- Tetrasodium EDTA
- Citric Acid
- FD &C yellow #5
- FD &C yellow #6
I think you can see why it is so much cheaper!
I am not a hair or shampoo expert, so all of this is obviously just my opinion! I do suggest that you try it out though!
