You are ready to get your lather, rinse, repeat on, but that 40 dollar bottle of shampoo is not in your budget. You want fabulous hair, but you would also like to eat this week. Fortunately, there are great drugstore brands of shampoos and conditioners that are just as good as that salon brand. You can have gorgeous hair and seconds on dinner.
Get Your Daily Lather
Allure gave this shampoo and conditioner its 2010 Best Of Beauty Award. Garnier Fructis Daily Care Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner strengthens your hair. Sulfates and B vitamins come together to provide clean shine. The conditioner uses plant technology to provide nourishment to your hair. This is good for normal hair that needs everyday cleansing. This duo also won InSTyle's Award for best shampoo.
You Can Relax Naturally
Pantene Pro-V has developed a line specifically for women of color, and Essence Magazine is feeling it. This line is designed to meet the moisture needs of African American hair. Whether hair is chemically straightened or natural, one thing rings true, African American hair is more porous and dry than most hair. Pantene Relaxed and Natural uses Pro Vitamins to nourish and protect hair.
Keep That Color Correct
You are looking to keep your color treated hair looking like you just left the salon. InStyle Magazine recommends L'Oreal Color Vive Pro Color Vive High Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner. Yes, it is a mouthful, but it is a mouthful of goodness. UV filters help protect your color from fading. Pro vitamins and anti-oxidants keep your hair conditioned and strong.
You Want It Nice And Smooth
Frizz and static are wreaking havoc on your hair. You can get it smooth with Shape Magazine's Best of 2010 Shampoo and Conditioner, John Frieda's Frizz Ease Smooth Start Shampoo and Conditioner. They like it because it conditions and smooths split ends with essential oils. This shampoo and conditioner works well on chemically straightened hair.
