Who makes the best?!! I have tried many, both inexpensive and way too much $, and am still looking for the best shampoo & conditioner as well as styling products. I was not impressed with Paul Mitchell, Aussie, John Freida or Fructisse (sp?) to name a few I have tried. Help!

I have had wonderful results with a natural product called Burd Dew. It's cheap, and it adds just the right amount of body.

What are you trying to achieve? Do you need volume? Do you need something to tame curls? Do you need a super hold spray? I like Kenra styling products. I don't normally buy salon shampoo or conditioner because my daughter doesn't know what "you only need a dab" means.

You might get different recommendations depending on your hair type. Short, long, thick, thin, straight, curly, frizzy? Tres Semme is pretty good.

Thanks everyone (but Moldy - I guess now we know why your locks are Moldy).

I have the worst kind of hair!! It is thin and since it has started to gray it tends to be frizzy and fly-away. I abuse it as well - heat styling and color. So I guess I need something that will add a bit of body while at the same time conditions and protects. Thanks again!

You can't beat Matrix, but it's expensive. Once in a while, you can get shampoo and conditioner for 2/$25 (liter bottles) at salons, including Walmart salon.

I don't think I have tried Matrix. I will keep an eye out for the sale. Thank you.

I think two of the best products out there are "It's a 10" and Aquage. Both VERY expensive products but they are the best by far! jmo

I have been very happy with Aquage products too, and I have fine, limp hair. They are only available at independent beauty salons. They are competitively priced with other salon products and well worth the money.

I have really curly hair and there is 2 products I know will always work for my hair.. Suave Curly Hair and Infusium Curl ... and I cannot find either of them anywhere.. Pantene curl stuff works for a while.. but eventually it wieghs my hair down.. Im currently trying Aussie Cleanse and Mend.. seems to be working well.. not only for my curly hair but also for the one daughter with super thick wavy hair and the other daughter with fine blond hair..

I'm a licensed stylist and think Suave is great and a whole lot cheaper than salon products. I used to always buy Matrix Sleek Look for taming my curls in the humidity. The Suave Professionals version is just as good. Look for the orange bottles at Dollar General or Walmart.
Aussie products are great too. They used to be only sold professionally also.

We carry both lines at Shear Changes. I'm not one who pushes certain products on people but after going to an Aquage hair show I was really impressed with their products but I do think they are over priced. "Its a 10" is a must! I have fine thin hair and it doesn't weigh the hair down. We can't keep it on our shelves its that good!

Thanks CE. I'll save up for some! Has anyone tried "Bed Head"? I just got a sample of the shampoo & intense conditioner.

And thank you stylist. I had heard that about Suave before, but it's nice to hear it verified by a professional. I used to use Aussie because it smells so good! But it didn't do the trick after the grey started coming in. I may have to try the cleanse & mend as Vaypor suggested.

There are just too many products out there to choose from!

I prefer the Sexy products, They have a shampoo and conditioner for every type of hair and less expensive than Aquage. The frizz eliminator is the best product on the market.

I would have to say I am impressed with the Suave Professionals line .. They have shampoo for brunettes, frizz reducing shampoo, shine enhancing shampoo, etc ..$2 a bottle, I think its well worth it!

One other thing that no other stylist have mentioned is the importance of keeping your hair trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks. When you hair begins to grow out, it loses it shapes and the ends can begin to become damaged and split. Frequent trims are a must for keeping your hair healthy and looking it's best!!!! "It's a 10" is wonderful, I use it and love it. Aquage is also very good. I also really like Kenra, they have a wonderful line of products. I haven't used the Suave Professional line so I can't comment on it. I have heard good things about Bed Head but haven't tried that line yet either.
