shampoo and condition

Every so often I get in a shampoo/conditioner rut and start looking for a new one.  With so many options out there it can be so overwhelming!  Clients often ask which kind they should use.  As a cardinal rule I like to tell them that if their hair is colored (whose isn't?)  they should probably be using a color safe S & C.  Also.  It's not a bad idea to have a couple different ones in the shower and rotate them!  Oh!  And keeping a good deep conditioner in there to use about once a week isn't a bad idea either.  

With that,  I've compiled a list of my FAVORITE Shampoos and Conditioners.  A little something for everyone.

Bumble and Bumble have a new product called "Color Minded"  which is now favorite.  
Bb says:  Our latest line features a sulfate free cleanser (which we love) and moisture rich conditioner and multitasking stylers with UV filters and heat protection.  Brilliant!! AND it smells good too.

Matrix Amplify
An oldie but a goody.   Such a classic pair and they won't break the bank!

 Bumble and Bumble
The best of the bunch.  It a little bit kills me that they are from two different 'lines.'  But the Creme de Coco is my favorite shampoo while Super Rich is easily my favorite conditioner.  Warning: super rich is not for those whose hair is easily weighed down.  Thin, fine hair steer clear.

 Goldwell Color Glow
A great pair for colored hair.  Restores the PH balance after being colored.  Love the smell, and how easily it works into the hair.

S Factor Smoothing

My ALL time favorite smelling shampoo and conditioner.  Did someone just put open a package of sweet tarts?  What's that you say, it's your hair?  AMAZING.  

Moroccan Oil 
Great option for girls with unruly hair.  If you're looking to take a ride on the smooth train, this one has your ticket.  CHOO CHOO!

-Ok, so now that I've shared all my shampoo&conditioner secrets with you, return the favor!!  What's your favorite?

Macademia Oil. Hands down the best ever. Comparable to Moroccan Oil but I feel smells a lot better and doesn't weigh my hair down as much. Seriously this stuff is amazing!!! I get mine at Ulta but I have seen it at Target.

I love Matrix and Biolage deep conditioning but I switch between those and Suave Professionals. The Keratin colored treated hair S&C is AMAZING!! And for the price, you can't beat it. :) I also love Pantene Anti-breakage. I know these are all probably so bad for my hair but I like em.
