Hi,

I have naturally curly, long hair and the older I get, the harder it is to keep it looking healthy and shiny. It looks very dry and frizzy and I really don't want that.

Any suggestions would be so appreciated! I've been using the different Aveda products but it still isn't working....

i've found that my curly (and colored) hair doesn't really like sulfate based shampoos.
my hair doesn't like to be shampooed more than 2 days a week.

i've been using sally's moroccan oil line, 'the one and only'. i've tried the shampoo,
conditioner, curl up cream, and the spray shine.

so far, so good.

i haven't tried the no poo method or wen / hair one.

try reading naturally curly dot com. it's a wealth of information.

I second the recommendation to steer clear of sulfate based shampoos. Like the pp, I shampoo twice a week. On the off days I still shower but use conditioner only. I did the no poo thing for almost a year and it worked well but ultimately went back to shampoo/conditioner. I like the Avalon Organics brand. If I need a little extra moisture or "product" I use a tiny amount of jojoba oil.

Default What is the best shampoo and conditioner for dry hair? (colored, product)

I’d recommend the shampoo of Pro Naturals

I shampoo less frequently, that has really helped my hair.

I haven't found shampoo to make much of a difference in my hair. Conditioner seems to be far more important. The only conditioners that help are leave in conditioners. I use V05 Salon Series Simply Stunning Leave in Conditioner. Then I let my hair air-dry. So far, this is the only conditioner that has made a difference in my hair. It's the only one that doesn't leave my hair greasy or weigh it down.

My sister-in-law's hair looked a bit brittle/damaged before and she started using the Macadamia s & c and since then, her hair looked great.

I bought the set myself and I found it too oily. I don't have dry hair, so I guess it became excessive for me.

I think it's a good product.

I also don't wash my hair every day. I do it every other day and if I can get away with it, I wash it on the third day.

I thought that sulfates had pretty much been taken out of shampoo. I know major brands advertise this.

I had to try different brands before settling on the Giovanni line which I buy at Whole Foods. The conditioner I use works very well. My stylist recommended putting conditioner on just the ends, and that is now what I do.

Another thing I did is to set my blow dryer on cool for when I blow dry. That has helped more than anything.
