A totally easy and off topic to discuss.. Shampoo... thought we could all use a break with something light :rollinglaugh: to chat about... Anyone have any faves or hates? Of course as a girl always like to discuss hair topics or new products but guys not excluding you either.. all are free to discuss.. My most recent fave was a purchase at Walgreens.. Loreal Shampoo and Conditioner it's in a pink bottle advertising mirror shine.. let me tell you that stuff in great so far.. used it today, great shine, made hair easier to straighten and even straightened well just by using the blow dryer so didn't have to spend as much time using the straightener.. plus didn't weigh hair down.. I highly recommend it.. Thanks, and I think this will be a fun topic, and feel free to expand to more than just shampoo that was just an idea... :mrt: I just thought this smiley was cute, plus it has hair..lol.

Shampoo is an abomination before God. It was invented by Richard Hudnut when his soap factory sales were plummetting. Jesus never used shampoo.

I use the same soap that I use to wash my body, wash the dishes, and clean the toilet. It works!

(But then, my hair is falling out and my dishes are fading and I have BO and the toilet is always a bit dodgy.)

I'm fond of Herbal Essences Color Me Happy when my hair is dark and the Bed Head Dumb Blonde when my hair is light. (I'm like a chameleon!)

I also have this need to swap out my shampoos. Like I can't use the same one for too long. So right now I'm using this Tres Semme stuff that smells awesome. But I'll be back to my Herbal Essences soon.

I swear by Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner - it smells gorgeous :Luv:. When I need a change, Tresemme is OK, but I always go back Herbal Essences.

I will check those out, I love to change around shampoos too..I think it works to do that, not sure if any truth to it but works for me..current faves are the Loreal I spoke of, any type of straightening shampoo, and John Frieda Volumizing Shampoo.. or I have a Rusk product I think they discontinued it smells awesome like a clean, ocean scent.

Richard Hudnut was an arsewipe, just like Helena Rubenstein and Max Factor. But I swear to God none of them were members of the illuminati. Nowadays, Opus Dei wouldn't pee on any of their graves.

Silas, agree with you on Hudnut I just read on him.. very interesting.

Apart from the stage makeup which is still marketted under the Max Factor brand, the company exists only as a parent company for many toiletry and cosmetic brands. Such as Estee Lauder. But you can trace most of them back to Helena Rubenstein, of Melbourne, Australia, who claimed to have discovered the remedy for oily skin. (It was powdered chalk)
At one time, Rubenstein, Factor, Arden, Hudnut and many others had their global manufacturing headquarters in Melbourne, because of the cheap resources. Which are basically dirt and sheep's fat.

Trust me to turn an easy thread into a controversial one.

I use TRESemme, and...so does my PP so we smelled identical at visit. :) Makes our hair soft and shiny too. Actually he has access to great aftershave and shower gels, so he smells like a cross between a new born baby and a make up counter girl.

I know, he doesn't get fruit but he can buy great toiletries at the store. smh.

I'm using their mirror shine shampoo and conditioner toooo! *high five!* Hahaha. But my fave shampoo is by Herbal Essence, it's orange in colour and supposedly gives volume for fine, limp hair; I liked it cause it was cheap and made my limpy Asian hair looked voluminous like you Caucasians :)

Maybe its just YOUR hair. Plus good hair is largely genetic, and not determined by race.

I don't like to use shampoo with sulfates in them, which is often the 2nd or 3rd ingredient, because it is a super drying kind of agent. There is a line of products by a company called "Giovanni" that has lovely things, cheap, no sulfates.
I don't like to spend tons of money on shampoo but I do like nice ones. I keep coming back to Giovanni even after I go out to play and think I'm going to find someone better. We have a thing going.

Thanks for the info Silas... didn't know that about Max Factor, hadn't really thought of it...chances are I probably don't want to know what is in makeup even though I love makeup... aww I don't think we've gotten too controversial yet so don't worry :o afterall all we are only talking shampoo and beauty products..

yes this can be true that genetics play a part in hair texture, thickness, curliness.. I have heard Asian friends complain of their own hair problems so I can see where Eltaria was going with the comment...just glad to hear good news on volumizing products..and extra great if a cheap product works well..

I have used the panteen colored treated line before and a conditioner of theirs i liked too.. didn't weigh hair down.. i love trying all products, will give most a try.. or go to Walgreens, if you don't like it you can easily return it trust me have done that many times especially nail polish..lol.. No need to thank me thought would be a fun topic and something light to discuss and I always love hearing about new products nothing beats first hand testimonials..lol..Oh hairspray too I bought a can of Finesse, strong hold other than that not sure without in front of me it's a blue can under $2 at Walgreens, used it a few days I like it.. no scent, re-stylable no buildup or stickiness so I am happy with that but the cashier there suggested John Frieda so I will try that next time she said she loves it and its under 5 so that is good..I guess prices could be a little different for other Walgreens, but imagine they are still reasonable...must agree with you Silas does seem to have knowledge on a vast array of topics..

I think Dial( unsure??) or someone for short time made candles they were great smelled like a real light, clean scent... I love a good candle.. and would love some of the hair scents in them like the Herbal Essence Tousle Me line.. in the purple bottles I love the smell of those... light and kind of lavendery... didn't Garnier make candle and scent products for a very short time? might have been years ago though..

Chinese people generally have finer hair than Caucasians, who have thicker, coarser strands of hair so it gives the illusion of fuller hair. Ultimately it's genetics, of course, I'm just talking about the majority here!

You said Asian, I'm Asian my hair is not 'limpy'. I have Asian family and friends, and they have good hair too...unless they are bald. ASian hair, comes in many forms; curly, super straight and even really springy..so that is a vast and inaccurate assumption you are making about the hair of about ..what? 2 billion or so people.

Also all the Chinese people I have known have had the best hair, ever (obviously, according to my taste). black, long, super shiny and just flawless.

True... guess regardless of who we are we can have bad hair in our genetics...might not be true but just an observation, it seems like I have seen ppl of asian ethnicity who do not go gray as early in their years and less balding problems... many asians have very beautiful hair..I love everyone's posts here and getting so many suggestions, and drinkwater tried to pm you inbox is full, no big deal though didn't really want anything or I imagine you know what I was asking about and we'll talk later...I am often jealous of ppl with either really straight hair or really curly or wavy hair as mine is in between just enough curl and wave to be effected by humidity but not really enough of it to wear so straightening takes more time :angryfire:

LOL my point was never that Asians don't have beautiful hair!!! My point was that Asians generally have FINER strands of hair than Caucasians, and when you're going for the VOLUMINOUS look, Caucasians with their thicker strands of hair have it easier. My cousin has thick strands of hair too, and we share like a common set of DNA, and as a medical student I know better than to generalize on phenotypic traits based simply on race! And living in a Western country for the past 2 years, my Caucasian friends say they envy my straight sleek shiny hair because theirs frizz up easily. And when I say limpy, it's because I come from a humid country and by mid-day our hair gets 'limpy' because of the sweat and oil and moisture weighing it down.

Eltaria...its ok, hey I say as long as one has hair it is beautiful just think of those unfortunate to lose theirs so will take any type anyday...appreciate your comments, i def do always envy straight hair unless I use a lot of product mine will frizz in humidity or unstyle..lol..its all good, just a silly shampoo forum here for product ideas...onto other things.. do you use a heat set protectant?? I use one by Redken, I love that stuff spray on before heat styling it works great, if I only had one product or only one salon product this would be it..another question since you tend to use a lot of volumizing products are there any that you dislike? Im tried so many not sure if I can remember my dislikes...I generally blowdry, set top of hair on large rollers while I do makeup then straighten, tease and go.. not real time consuming for everyday.

To lighten topic and hair..pun.. anyone use the John Frieda color glazes?.. I use them to highlight or lowlight hair, it gives a natural tone, can easily be colored over, is less harsh on hair, and easy to use. :rainbow: just love multi-tonal color

Haha noooo I don't use voluminizing products or anything, not even gel or mousse, I somehow just refuse to put anything on my hair! I don't even blowdry my hair, or curl it, I'm awful at styling my hair!!! So I rely on my shampoo and conditioner lol to do some miracles :) Haha. I wanna learn how to curl my hair, like those gorgeous curls kind you see on celebs! And ooooo what Redken product is that?! And do you have any recommendations for hairsprays! :)

sure always have suggestions... Redken product is called heat set as far as I can think, it is a red bottle and a heat protectant so if you go to make those curls they will last.. spray on before blow drying, or for extra hold after drying before using heat tools too.. if I really want it to last or really humid out I spray again or by section when i straighten..aww anyone can get better at styling, a stylist at a salon can help give tips too and help out or check out online vids they help too.. How long is your hair currently, that will help me be able to give more advice.. hairsprays.. for a light hold Herbal Essence Tousle Me line of spray, cheap but good either Finesse Super hold, John Frieda or the Got2Be lines too.. hope this helps.

The question of whether health care is a right or a privilege is a deeply philosophical and political issue that varies by country and cultural perspectives. In many nations, access to health care is considered a fundamental right, ensuring that all citizens have the means to maintain their health through public or subsidized medical services. In others, health care is viewed more as a privilege, available to those who can afford private insurance or direct health services. Regardless of where you stand in this debate, taking proactive steps to maintain your own health is crucial. Self-care can include regular exercise, a balanced diet, adequate sleep, and managing stress, which are all essential components of a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, it's not just about internal health; external care is just as important. This includes maintaining the health of your skin, nails, and hair. Particularly for those with colored hair, choosing the right products is vital to ensure that the hair remains healthy and vibrant. Colored hair requires shampoos that can cleanse without stripping the dye, thereby prolonging color and reducing damage. For those looking for a specialized product, I recommend checking out the best Japanese shampoo for colored hair. These products are typically formulated to be gentle on the hair while helping to preserve color and improve hair health. You can find a list of these products here: Top Japanese Shampoos for Colored Hair. Using a shampoo that caters specifically to the needs of colored hair can make a significant difference in maintaining the vibrancy and health of your hair.
