My hair is dry, breaks easy and WILL NOT GROW!!! I live in a dry environment and I do dye my hair once every 2-3 months. I use pantene but it doesnt seem to help and I do blow dry. Anything you may know of that will help?

I LOVE Redken's Extreme shampoo and conditioner. It works great on dyed hair and if your hair is breaking, get the Anti-snap leave in treatment by Redken as well. Put loads on it on after dying your hair and wash it really good in the morning.

That Redken is a great product. I have heard for many years that Pantene is the worst shampoo/cond. you can buy. It is NOT good for your hair. Also, you should not use the same products for a very long period of time, as it will dry your hair out and leave a film. You should switch brands every 4-6 months.

I don't know if its Pantene that's the bad product, or shampoo/conditoner
2 in 1's. Shampoo is supposed to cleanse your hair and Conditoner is supposed to restore it back after the cleansing. I don't think the 2 in 1 products really do the job. One side is going to work more than the other (ie: its going to over clean and under condition.. or vice versa)
I am a shampoo snob though, I am not going to lie.

If you don't like Redken.. try TIGI oatmeal shampoo and conditioner. Its good as well. Paul Mitchell's Tee Tree shampoo works good if you have really dry scalp and dandruff.

My hair is very fine & breaks easily. I use Biolage Hydrating Shampoo and Rejuvenating Balm. You have to go to a salon that carries Matrix products for this, but it works really well.

Hi Everyone, I am a hair stylist and a great produce for highlighted or colored hair is Pureology Antifade. The whole line is about the best out there but you can only get it and other professional products at a Beauty Supply store. You should put a dime size amount of a protective cream after shampooing to prevent breakage and fading. I don't know where you live, but ebay stores have tons of products for sale if your local beauty supply doesn't have a good selection, like a Sally's, yuck! Another good line is Halo by Graham Webb. You have to spend the money to get good products. Good luck.

I know I'm just a guy...but...my hair looks healthy if I don't wash it for a week. Seems to me all that constant washing just messes it up and blow drying dries it out. What about giving your hair a break every few weeks and let the natural oils build up to repair it with your own natural conditioners?
