Your hairdresser should be telling you to stay away from Pantene too. The pH levels I'm that are EXTREMELY high.
When I went to school for hairdressing, we had to do a project on shampoo, and Pantene is the worse for your hair, plus it leaves a film on your scalp.

About once a month, I'll condition my hair with a tiny bit of Finesse conditioner. A bottle lasts me a year or more.

My hair is thick, tends to oiliness, and is already quite "healthy".
Dryness is not an issue. Greasy residue is the enemy.
Pell makes a conditioner that is in a white bottle and it has the same clean Prell smell. Ask your store manager if it can be ordered for you.

I had hip-length hair thru high school in the 70s. I send GYHST every day. I don’t remember having a matching conditioner tho. If I didn’t use some, all that hair would have been dangerous!! But my hair was shiny and soft, never brittle.

Anyway, having a product made in the Philippines isn’t an automatic problem. I’m sure they are very nice, diligent people there, and we’d be ok using their products. The real problem is the price!!

There was mention below about the Vermont Country Store. While I enjoy looking thru the catalogs (that I did NOT ask for!!) and pondering all the things I’ve forgotten, I am just downright offended at the cost they charge for some of the stuff they have! It’s great to spend a little extra for fun things now and then, but candy? Shampoo? Lotions? Regardless of the location of the manufacturer, there is no need to price gouge folks. I love most of the stuff in the catalog, but my conscience will not allow me to spend $100 on a night gown.

Iíve been wondering about what shampoo to buy lately. The Pantene with conditioner Iím using right now makes crusty patches on my head. The time I tried Dove shampoo, my hair started falling out.

What is a safe shampoo that just cleans your hair?

You might try Garnier Whole Blends line. Oat Delicacy shampoo and conditioner is for very sensitive hair. The Honey Treasures or Maple Remedy shampoo and conditioner scents are great for this time of year.

Just to weigh in on GYHST. I remember discovering it around 1972 or so, and it DID really smell terrific.
