    What is the best shampoo and conditioner?

    I have been watching the tv lately with all the different products out there which one is the best for price and reliability. I have been told patenne but not sure?

    I too have tried it and found it not to be any good, it depends on your hair type and what you want to achieve, I personally love Stylius Caviar Shampoo as I have very dry hair wavy and that works wonderfully for me, if I want straight hair I use the Stylius Straightening Shampoo and Mask as I won't need to do much straightening with my straighteners

    About a year ago, I started getting tired of the standard grocery store shampoos and conditioners, so I decided to switch.  Now, I use Avalon Organics (lemon) shampoo and conditioner.  I order it online, and it costs about $6 per bottle, but I love the smell, it doesn't leave behind any residue, and it doesn't cause the skin problems that some of the major store brands do.  Good luck!

    Believe it or not I use Suave...it is quite cheap.  My hairdresser would have a fit if he knew.  I think I read somewhere, ?magazine? ?newspaper? that most shampoos are not all that different.  It is probably not true.  I've tried the expensive shampoos but they don't seem to do much.  My husband and I have used Fructis, and we like it.  But we always seem to come back to Suave.  Not crazy over Pantene, Prell or VO5.  Hope this helps!  Like you said, there are SO MANY brands out there.  Blessings, Sparklea smile
    PS: I use Fructis Leave-In Conditioner.  Only need a tiny bit after I shampoo.

    It really depends on the texture of your hair. My hair is thick and kind of a medium-coarse, so it tends to dry out very easily. On the other hand, my mom's is very thin and fine, so she doesn't have issues with dryness but more with it getting weighed down. I was told by a hairstylist and read in magazines and whatnot that pantene is the worst because it contains panthenol (like many other common brands of shampoo) which coats the hair to make it shiny, but doesn't actually treat the problem. I think it also makes it difficult for the natural oils to penetrate your hair, resulting in poor hair condition in the long run.

    I try to use more natural hair products, and occasionally I'll use Dove. My favorite is Organix Moroccan Argan Oil - it makes my hair really soft and shiny.

    Kiss My Face Whenever shampoo and conditioner is raved about by people that like natural products, but for me it seems to dry out my hair. They say that when you go more natural it takes about a week or so for your hair to look nice because your hair is so used to chemicals. I think that may be the issue and I didn't make it beyond a week!

    My hairstylist friend recommended Tigi Bedhead but I've had yet to try it because it's pretty pricey.

    You should try Nexxus or Matrix. They leave my hair feeling soft. When it comes to hair, you get what you pay for.

    I've always had extremely dry hair.  Within the past year I started using Herbal Essence's Hello Hydration 2 in 1.  I follow that up with a generic conditioner.  It works wonders on my scalp.  Honestly though, the best will all depend on what your hair needs.
