Favorite Shampoo and Conditioner?

I’ll admit…I receive loads and loads of hair products weekly, but I have YET to find a shampoo and conditioner that I adore. What gives, people? Honestly, the closest I’ve gotten to sudsy infatuation is Infusium’s Moisturologie line. (5 bucks a pop at Target. SCORE!)

Does this problem stem from the fact that I have “normal” hair? Most of the products I see/receive for review are so specialized (colored, dry, damaged, volume-enhancing, etc…) What about us girls with the no-drama tresses?

Tell me, dear readers. What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner, inexpensive or pricey? Let’s all share with one another, regardless of hair type. Kumbaya.

    I have used Bumble&Bumble Gentle and Super Rich for years now and I’ve had no reason to want to change. It works great on my normal, straight locks. I’ve had a few friends recommend Infusium so in the name of keeping on a tight budget I may have to try it.

    Kerestase Chroma Reflect!

    Redken All Soft Shampoo & Conditioner – I am not blessed with normal hair, so this helps tame the frizziness of natural wavy hair and keeps my scalp happy.

    L’Oreal EverPure moisturizing shampoo & conditioner. I do not have “normal” hair. I have enough hair for two people and it’s color-treated. I like that this is sulfate-free and doesn’t fade my colour, but it smells a little hippy-dippy for me.
    Kerastase Oleo-Relax is the best ever, but I just can’t justify the expense.

    My favorite combo is Bumble and bumble Seaweed Shampoo with Bumble and bumble Alojoba Conditioner. My hair is pretty “normal” – medium thickness, not dry or oily, etc. – and this combo leaves is soft but not greasy.

    I too have normal hair – my all time reasonably priced choice is Redken’s Clear Moisture. Been using for a decade, still love it. For a splurge, I love Kerastase’s Bain Satin 1 and Lait Vital – worth it if you can swing the heavy price tag.

    Pureology Volume line. It’s the only conditioner that does not make my hair look dirty half way through the day.

    I hate to say I got sucked into a “TV product”. Wen has helped me so much. I always had “good hair” according to my mother, but let me just say last week, the desk clerk at the hotel where I was went on for FIVE MINUTES about my hair. So yeah, it must be working. And I am one of those people that swears I must shampoo everyday. I guess not, after all.

    I love the L’Oreal Ever Pure/Ever Strong line. I love my expensive shampoo (Keune or Alfaparf) but I don’t love the pricetag. The L’Oreal line is a good substitute, and easy on the pocketbook.

    Kerastase Bain Satin “for normal to dry hair” is, hands down, the best shampoo I’ve ever used. I use the Lait Vital conditioner with it, and the combo gives me movie star hair. Seriously. Unfortunately, due to the price and the fact that I went back to school, I can only splurge on it once in a while…

    When I have money to spend, I love the Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner from Kiehl’s. It smells incredible and makes my hair smooth and soft.

    When I am poor, I like Herbal Essences Hello Hydration shampoo and conditioner. It also smells amazing and makes my hair nice, for way less cash than Kiehl’s.

    I love Brocato Splassh shampoo – sulfate-free, and just enough moisture that I can get by without conditioning if I don’t have time. If I do condition, I use Brocato Saturation leave-in conditioner.

    Love #1: Pureology Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner.

    I have dry hair, made drier by highlighting. This shampoo broke the “dry scalp today, oily scalp tomorrow” cycle. I can easily wash every other day now – I feel like my scalp is more consistent (neither dry, nor oil-slick oily)

    #2. Kiehl’s Amino Acid shampoo followed by Kiehl’s Hair Conditioner and Grooming Aid #133. I tried it because it’s what my gym stocks in their showers and I. Love. It. (Enough that I might replace Pureology with this stuff) Same results as Pureology (not too drying, can go multiple days without, no second-day greasy hair).
