I've gone though colouring recently and my hair lost its softness and shine Crying or Very sad . I am looking for a good shampoo and conditioner to restore it to the former glory - so far I tried a few organic brands, that didn't work so well. I would love to get some suggestions, thanks in advance

tetyanak:

I also recently tried switching to organic shampoo & conditioner with poor results. (giovanni brand) Prior to trying organics which has left my hair really dried out and lacking shine big time I was using Redken All Soft Shampoo & Conditioner (Actually have been using Redken products for over 12 years) and really love it. My hair was shiny, had body and was well moisturized. If I cannot find a reasonably priced Organic line that works I will go back to using Redken. For deep conditioning (which I did once or twice a month) I would use Redken Climatress mixed with Ojon Restorative Treatment. I would rub this all through my hair and then clip my hair up in Alligator Clips and let it stay on for 5-6 hours, then shampoo & condition as usual. My hair was always super soft and shiner for days after this treatment. I highly recommend it. I will be using this exact treatment this weekend to repair the damage from using Giovanni Tea Tree Shampoo.

I too have highlights and they always dry out my hair. I use the Ojon treatment about once a month. I really like it and it seems to restore my hair. Now everyday when I wash my hair (I work out everyday, that's why I wash my hair so frequently) I use Brocato Cloud Nine Miracle Hair Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. I love that stuff!!! My hair had never looked better. I get it at Ulta. It doesn't weight done my hair as I am a natural blonde wtih fine hair. That's my recommendation. Good Luck!

For daily conditioning, I use Sudzz FX and a DIY leave-in serum/gel with seamollient [recipe on DIY forum]

For weekly deep conditioning, I use organic, unrefined coconut oil and comb it through dry hair [it takes a lot]. I wrap my hair in a turban, leave it in overnight and shampoo with conditioner the next day.

I tried Ojon and liked it, but it's so expensive and I had to use so much of it to coat my hair, hence the switch to plain coconut oil.

Terax Crema!

This is consistantly ranked (several years in a row) as Best Conditioner in In Style magazine's annual "best of" issue.

It may be used as a daily conditioner AND deep-conditioning treatment. Great stuff!

If you live in Canada, some salons offer Toronto-based brand Uans. Uans' Crema is identical to that of Terax, but costs a little bit less. (harder to find though)

Last month I purchased Elvive's Pearl Protein shampoo and conditioner and its brilliant. No need to leave conditioner on for long just comb through and rinse. You should try it it has some light reflecting and it smells and makes hair so calm and glossy

Athena 123 - I am curious about your use of the unrefined coconut oil as a hair mask. Have you used other oils on your hair? How does this compare?

This is the kind of treatment you'll pay around $20-30 in salon, but if you can buy it and do it at home, you'll save a lot of money. I got them either on ebay or at a salon where I go to.

I've tried Terax Crema and it was great, but impossible to get a hold of where I live. Lately, I've been using oil (either olive oil or coconut oil) as a pre-wash treatment and it's worked really well. Plus it's MUCH cheaper than Terax Crema.

Today, I went to one of my favourite beauty store in Toronto and I asked the owner if I could use my Kerastase hair mask three times a week instead of one and he said "no".!

He said that in the ingredient, it has plastic and if you use it too much, your hair will look plastic. I didn't really understand him but he tried to explain it to me again. He said that that it is a great product for your hair and gives excellent results. But it is not made to be used often.

ive been obsessed with shiseido tsubaki shampoo and conditioner since it came out last year, it got a huuuuuge advertisement push on tv and in magazines that i just couldnt resist Sad
tsubaki is camellia, this line contains camellia oil, and i found that the shampoo and conditioner really restored life to my hair since i'd been dyeing the hell out of it AND spending a lot of time at the beach. now that my hair's grown out and is much healthier and i've cut off all the dyed part, i just use the shampoo which is still nice and leaves my hair soft and shiny Smile

Hi sister, sorry for the delay but I haven't revisited this thread for awhile... Because naturally curly hair tends to run dry, I treat it as if it were chemically damaged [which it's not! Very Happy ]

I use camellia and jojoba oil in my hair every day after rinsing out conditioner and leave it in. Camellia oil leaves my hair nice and shiny, and the jojoba oil promotes better penetration of the camellia. As long as I don't use too much It doesn't leave my hair looking greasy.

On occasion, I'll use avocado oil in my hair as well but for deep conditioning, I've found raw coconut oil to be the most effective.

HTH,

athena

LOREAL Natures Therapy Mega Moisture Nurturing Creme for Very Dry, Chemically Processed Hair and LOREAL Ineral Hair Fixer with Restructuring Molecules & Amino Acids Hair Repair Kit Repairs Weak, Broken Damaged, Color Treated, Bleached, Relaxed, Permed & Thin Hair both work wonders on hair. I especially love how cheap they both are. The hair fixer has seriously saved my hair from splitends, I havent had a hair cut in almost 7 months and I swear I dont have any splitends. You can get them both at Sallys beauty supply as well.

Yogi, I buy bulk oils from Oils by Nature. http://www.oilsbynature.com/online.asp

I started with Silkia camellia oil, but once I started using it in my hair, I could no longer afford $15 for 2 oz. of camellia oil and started looking for larger quantities. The camellia oil from Oils by Nature seems to be just as effective, although it's slightly lighter in color than the Silkia.

HTH,

athena

Hi Racecargirl,Is Brocato a new line? I just tried the volume one and really liked it. I usually use Pureology and it maintained my highlights great. No brassyness. The problem is it breaks out my skin. Do you still like the line? Thanks!

I am loving John Master's products. The Honey and Hybiscus Hair Reconstructor is a fabulous deep conditioner. I have also use John Masters Organics Dry Hair Nourishment & Defrizzer. The smell of these products are gorgeous. Best of all, they don't leave my hair weighed down but shiny and full.

I never thought I would give up my Body Deli shampoo and conditioner until I found John Masters.

I am also fond of WEN Chaz Dean Conditioning Shampoos.

Another rave here for the Brocato Cloud 9 Shampoo!!! But I use Regis Olive Oil conditioner as my daily conditioner and the Olive Oil Masque as my deep conditioner. These are excellent and have no cones and are very very reasonably priced. Check out the reviews on makeupalley. I also like Giovanni 50/50 Conditioner. No cones in this one either.
