Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

I've been trying to find a new shampoo and conditioner to try. I have naturally very light blonde/curly/BEADED hair which is an awful curse- wouldn't wish it on an enemy. Anyway.

I wanted to try the new Jonathan Product Moisterizing Theory shampoo and conditioner, but have just read some awful reviews on it and don't want to waste the money. I was using Aveda, but because of the highly botanical nature of it, it caused some wacky things to occur.

Garnier Fructis is alright, but I don't love it.

I refuse Redken 'cause they test on animals and all... ah, the drama.

Help?

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

What is "beaded" hair?

What are you looking for in a shampoo & conditioner?? I'd try to help you, but you'll need to provide a little more info. You just say it's blonde, curly, beaded, and cursed.

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

I was wondering what beaded hair was too! I use the dove product line. The kind that give extra moisture/conditioner. My hair type is thick, naturally wavy,dry.

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

Yeah, I was using Aveda Curessence shampoo and conditioner. It is for damaged or dry hair, and after using it for a while, I would literally get out of the shower and dry my hair and my hair would be so greasy... it felt like I hadn't washed it at all. But then I had the worst dandruff ever! It didn't make sense at all, and so yeah, stopped using that. It's unfortunate, 'cause I really liked the way it smelled!


I wasn't aware of what beaded hair was either until pretty recently when I started seeing this new stylist. It's not something I understand very well right now anyway, but I understand that it is just a texture thing... very rare, I guess. The shaft of the hair actually looks like a strand of pearls, rather than shingles laying across one another. This makes hair much more prone to breakage, and makes it practically impossible to grow out. Add that to a list of blonde, curly, and dry, equals recipe for hair disaster. Whatever, I usually just throw it back.

I've been considering trying bumble & bumble products, or Matrix.

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

I would totally recommend:

Graham Webb-Daily Strength shamp. & cond.

It's pretty expensive, but totally worth it!

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

Matrix products are usually pretty good. Scruples is one that works great and smells awesome. Right now being summer, you will have to be pretty careful with experimenting too much. Between the sun and swimming it totally tears you hair up. It would be nice if you had a friend that was in cosmetology school or already a hair stylist. That way you could get products at cost. They are so darned expensive!!

Goodluck finding one! Every hair type is different. What works for one may not for another.

This is true! I think I'm gonna buy Bumble & Bumble Tonic Shampoo and Super Rich Conditioner. They don't test on animals, and have a great reputation and great reviews. Thanks for the help!

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

I wasn't aware of what "beaded" meant either, which is why I didn't respond originally... I was imagining you had beads in your hair, literally (you know how some girls get their hair braided with beads at the end...haha).

I have extremely damaged areas of my hair that are brittle and broken, and Matrix makes some of my favourite products. I would recommend giving the Biolage line a shot. Since my hair has grown out 7 inches now, I can use shampoo for "normal" hair, accompanied by a much heavier conditioner for the damaged bottom half (my hair is around 22" long, so I have a long way to go!). I use Biolage Normalizing Shampoo with the Biolage Ultra Hydrating Balm, and it's working very well for me. So if you're interested in Matrix, I'd recommend them, though you'd probably want to try the Hydrating Shampoo, not Normalizing. I'm also VERY addicted to the Biolage smell!

Problem with Matrix is that it's sooo expensive, especially if you have long hair like me and need to use a lot of the conditioner. Either way though, not many other products have worked as well to soften my hair. Good luck!

I really like bed head oatmeal and honey treatment shampoo and conditioner. It smells really good too!

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

I really thought "beaded hair" meant beads in your hair too...I was going to recommend you take the beads out...glad I asked first.

I second the recommendation on the Matrix Biolage products as well.

Have you tried the Nexxus Humectress? That tends to be a pretty heavy conditioner & weighs some people's hair down...but it might be worth a try. I loved it back in the day when I had long permed and damaged hair. It's pretty expensive, so you should try a smaller bottle if you can. I think Suave also had a knockoff of the Humectress that I've heard is VERY comparable to the original & only a couple bucks. I don't know about animal testing on these.

My suggestion... PAUL MITCHELL. I love it, and it really works wonders. Give it a try.

Re: Shampoo/Conditioner Suggestions

No problem! If you are concerned with animal testing you should go to a health food store and check out some of the products. Kiss my face has some really good products. They don't do any sort of animal testing and it is made of all natural products. You still have to be careful with some of the products though. Just because it is a health food store doesn't mean they don't do any animal testing. It also doesn't mean they use all natural products. Some stuff is in there that shouldn't be. Depending where you live it is usually pretty easy to find one.

Yes, that's a good idea but the thing I would be concerned about is the quality of the product.
