    I'd try looking at "color preserving" shampoos and conditioners, MadHatter! I think they're named that way for a reason.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    Oh yes, I've used a variety of color preserving shampoos and conditioners. None of them though have had the effect of this new salon shampoo/acidic treatment that I've used. I'm not even using conditioner with these, they're so effective. The shampoo is specifically marketed as being acidic (the shampoo is Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate, if y'all are curious, and the treatment is L'Oreal Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water - which you can find at any store), and there are a couple of drugstore shampoos that are allegedly in the desirable range on the pH scale, but I want to confirm on the litmus paper before I purchase anything else. Hell, I want to test the Redken too to make sure it really is acidic, like they say

    Because they learn this false information from cosmetic marketers and teachers in cosmetology school

    I've been using "salon quality" for a while, and it's been fine, but I don't feel like the shampoo is any better than the Walmart stuff I used to use. However, I do really like the conditioner. It's thicker instead of watery, and it seems to make my hair softer. But maybe that's the fact that I leave it in for a while, and the Walmart stuff might have the same effect if I let it work for a while. I'm planning on trying some different shampoos with my current one runs out because it's okay, but it doesn't seem to do anything for the slight flaking/build-up/I-don't-know-what I've got going on in the past couple years.

    I've never noticed that hardressers condemn supermarket/store shampoos, maybe because we can find their shampoos in supermarket sometimes (I live in France). So I find it really contradictory ! Especially as their shampoos are often full of silicones, sulfates and paraben, like a lot of non organic supermarket shampoos. No need to condamn them if the ingredients are similar haha
