    Do you use a clarifying shampone once a week?  it removes the excessive build up in your hair from using hair products which can add to hair frizziness (especially drug store shampoos).  I actually wouldn’t suggest any of those two products.  Your much better off going to ulta or sallys And have someone help you pick a better more moisturizing shampoo.  Also I would suggest using CHI silk infusion serum This product I find most helpful above all else.

    @Rachel631:  Ulta and Sally’s are US stores that cater to hair stylists and people who are looking to purchase more quality products than those available in grocery stores.  I’m not sure what the names of these types of stores  are in the UK, but typically they are “beauty supply” stores.  Any similar store should have the CHI silk as well.

    @Rachel631:  If you have a regular hair stylist, I would speak with her about where she would recommend you purchasing better quality products.  I’ve never thought about the UK and US having such different brands.  A brand that has recently moved from the salons to the grocery stores is Biolage.  Not sure if it is available over there, but I know it is pretty popular here.  I have the same problem you do with very frizzy hair.  Any humidity or even rubbing on a coat will cause my hair to grow to about 4-5 inches (10-12cm) out on either side of my head!  I also struggle because my hair is actually rather oily.  I really should wash once a day, but I work from home, so I try to do it only every other day.  I have tried every pH balancing scalp treatment on the market to help, but nothing has really worked so far.  Currently, I am using an overnight conditioner made from shea butter and cocoa butter.  It is designed for people with African hair types, but seems to work pretty well for me too.  I saturate my hair in it before bed and put a waterproof shower cap on my head.  I sleep like that once a week, and wash it out in the morning.  I will then straighten it with a ceramic straightening iron.  Thus far, it’s working ok for me.

    I used to always always use bargain brand shampoo and conditioner.  I got wise a couple years ago.  i switch between Nexus and Biolage for my haircare. The salon brands DO cost more, but you get more mileage out of them….so in the long run, I actually spend LESS b/c it doesn’t take as much shampoo (or conditoner) to get the same effect than the bargain brands!

     

    Suave and Pantene are notoriously bad for hair– I did use Suave in college cuz I was po’ but I would never use that crap on my hair now!!

     

    Basic rule of thumb…if you’re unsure what product to use on your hair…ask your stylist!  There’s thousands of different brands and types out there, a trained professional will lead you in the right direction!
