    Question shampoo & Conditoner of choice?

    I'm just curious what every one's favorite shampoo and Conditoner is and why.

    I have yet to find my perfect match. so far i really liked Dove intensive damage therapy. my hair was really healthy and i notcied faster growth since it seemed to protect me from damage

    right now i'm using Herbal Essances long hair shampoo and conditoner and i'm not really liking it. good thing i'm almost done with the bottles.

    You know, I was thinking of posting a similar question. But, for pure curiousity.

    I CO 5 days a week. My favorite conditioners are Herbal Essenses None of Your Frizzness, Herbal Essenses Break's Over, Herbal Essenses Hello Hydration, John Frieda's Brilliant Brunette Amber-Maple, and Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena. I didn't like the new Long Term Relationship from Herbal Essenses, but it'll do in a pinch (so I've kept it as a back up).

    On the 6th day I shampoo. With a very small amout, diluted in water. Because of that I still have the shampoo I bought in July... A LOT of it. Herbal Essenses None of Your Frizzness and Hello Hydration. I haven't experimented with anything else because these haven't run out, it takes so dang long to get through shampoo (I don't want a mess of shampoo bottles sitting around), and these that I have work well enough for my purposes.

    So, that's my long-winded way of saying I mainly use Herbal Essenses with some other stuff thrown inbetween. As to why I use them... They work for my hair. They weigh it down just enough to decrease frizzies while not making it limp. They leave my hair soft and manageable. I wouldn't use shampoo at all if I weren't using coneful conditioners. But, I need the slip that the cones provide.

    I CWC.

    For Shampoo: Peppermint Avalon Organics, Lemon Clarifying Avalon or JASON henna highlights
    Conditioner: Most V05 or Suave products are fabulous. I love Vo5 Strawberries and Cream, Passion Fruit Smoothie, and Strawberries and Champagne. Suave: Coconut, Mountain Strawberry.

    Shampoo is generally diluted, except about once a month or so I use it full strength. The shampoo is SLS free, cleans my scalp but doesn't overdry. The conditioner is super cheap, works better than more expensive stuff and smells really really good. (I like strong smelling stuff, if you can tell. )

    I've been using Giovanni s/c for about 6 or 7 years now.

    Shampoo of choice is Smooth as Silk, conditioner is the same. I use Direct Leave In. I also put the DLI into my mister bottle with distilled water to spritz my hair when I need to revive the wave/curl pattern or to pull my hair back so it is more "slick".
    Hmm, what should this say? I'm thinking . . .

    I CO, and I've been using several different condish from Nature's Gate.
    I like to cycle my products, whether i'm CO or CWC, because my hair is always happier when I cycle.

    I use Queen Helene Mint Julep shampoo and v05 vitaburst or tea therapy conditioner. I like them both although some days the shampoo foams, some days it doesnt lol.

    Today i bought aussie moist shampoo and condish, havent used them yet though but figured i'd give em a whirl.

    I've been using Appivita Propoline With Olive Oil And Honey Shampoo and Sani Hemp Oil Conditioner just recently and the combination seems to be working

    well i love love love love love love honeysuckle conditioner from Aubrey Organics it is my favourite! And it works wonderful with the JASON henna highlights that i bought and tried about 4 times, it gives volume and it is smooth
    I have to confess...i also tried the VO5 that i was reading from a lot of LHC´s but...i really really hated it. I tried it just one time so it can be it but anyway the texture of the conditioner it was not the kind i like. I really like conditioners that are absolutly heavy but not oily. When i used cones my favourite was heavy cream All Soft from Redken so i think that is why i also love Aubrey Organics. They are all heavy and this particular one smells great!

    I'll be watching this thread! I used my old bottle of Aussie Moist Conditioner last night - and am thrilled with the silk & shine I have today. Curls/whurls are back!

    I bought a new bottle today, so hope it delivers same results...
