Are you a Drugstore or Salon Shampoo user? I have always been a drugstore user and I actually use a pretty cheap drugstore brand. I am a big believer in Salon products to get the look you want when styling, but have just never found a Salon shampoo that made that big of a difference for me to make the price okay.
I have always loved Suave’s Professional’s line and the Humectant Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner is my fave. It smells amazing and my hair feels well moisturized after use and it runs about $3. You can find it on Amazon, Target, Walmart, etc. Frequently, Target has the shampoo and conditioner packaged together for about $5.
I heavily color process my hair and if I am not careful, it could turn into straw. Well, I don’t know that for a fact, but I do know that hotel shampoo causes it to look like a lion’s mane, so same thing!
I recently had a hard time finding my beloved Humectant in stock, which made me switch to a Salon Shampoo as a temporary fill in. I was curious as to what it would do differently to my hair. I tried Sexy Hair Blonde Bombshell Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ll be honest, I picked it cause it was on sale 2 for something at Ulta. I didn’t put a lot of research into which one I was going to try.
Overall, I like it. I’m not sure I like it $7 more than my Suave though. Here’s my take on it. The shampoo smells a little odd, not bad, not good, just odd. It doesn’t suds very much, which is by design, but since I typically waaaay overuse shampoo and like a ton of suds, it’s hard for me to adjust.
Just a warning, this shampoo is Violet to keep your blonde hair from becoming brassy, if you’ve never used a colored shampoo, that can be shocking.
The conditioner is a little bit hard to get out of the bottle and it goes on kind of dry. I’m not explaining that well, but other conditioners tend to make your hair feel silky while you are in the shower, this one doesn’t. It almost feels rough on my hair. Smell is pretty nondescript.
That being said, I do think my hair is easier to style with this Salon shampoo and conditioner combo. It seems to be easier to curl too. Overall, I think my hair looks better after using it.
Would I buy it again? That’s a tough one for me, I can’t see myself spending that much, especially due to all the other Salon products I currently buy. If money is no object, yes, but I would probably try a few other brands.
Do you use Salon shampoos and conditioners? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
