My Favourite Shampoos

My hair is pretty awful, it's course, frizzy and very dry. To make matters worse, I colour it, blow dry it and straighten it, so left to it's own devices, it resembles brittle straw.

After a lot of experimenting I've finally found 2 shampoos that work amazingly well for me. The first is Redken Extreme Shampoo which contains protein to help strengthen weakened hair, I felt a major improvement after using it for just a few weeks, my hair was breaking less and felt more resilient.

The second is Kerastase Nutritive Bain Oleo-Relax Smoothing Shampoo, which is formulated for dry, course and rebellious hair. This is hands down, the best shampoo I've ever tried, I've been using it for a really long time and have repurchased it more times than I can count! I leaves hair feeling clean but also really soft and nourished, which makes styling a lot easier. I don't know how it works, it just does!  

With both of these shampoos, a little goes a long way as they foam up really well, so a bottle lasts a lot longer than most, making them worth the higher price tag. I tend to alternate them, which I find works the best for me, my hairdresser informed me that you shouldn't use protein products too much because your hair needs moisture as well as strength.

    Strangely enough I've never tried Redken, but since I'm in the middle of Operation Rapunzel to really take care of my hair, this sounds like a product I should try. You can never get too much protein :o). Xx

  2. I'll definitely have to give the Kerastase a go, it sounds great! Unfortunately the Redken didn't work out for me x

  3. Redken is definitely one to try, their All Soft range is really good too!

  4. It is, definitely give it a go!

  5. I need to get my hands on the Kerastase! Love your blog :) - xx
