I used to use the Frizz Ease conditioner with Jojoba oil and loved it, but of course like everything else I like it got pulled off the market. I bought their new SmoothStart repair conditioner but not loving it. My store-brand shampoo also went off the market at the same time (what are the odds?) so I switched to Paul Mitchell Strength. Now my hair just looks super frizzy all the time. I have very long, slightly wavy hair that’s naturally oily but somewhat damaged from blow drying, higlights etc. I’m looking for something that leaves it silky and smooth. Do you ladies have hair products you swear by?

I really like Organix coconut milk shampoo and conditionor. (I also have wavy, high-lighted hair.)

I LOVE Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner. It smells SOOO good! I have fine, highlighted hair, but a girl I work with has VERY thick naturally curly hair that tends to frizz if she uses the wrong products, and she fell in love with it as well. They have an oil treatment that she uses along with the shampoo and conditioner, and she said her hair has never been so soft. It’s a little spendy, but it seems like most good hair products are. I’m never faithful to deodorant or shampoo, and I have been hooked on Moroccan Oil for two years now.

My stylist suggested to me (sounds like we have a similar hair) Pureology. She used it on my hair and I loved it.

I have similar hair, and I LOVE Redken’s All Soft.

I really love Tresemme (so does my fiance, haha, he said “tell her it works for boys and girls!”). I used to use Pantene and Herbal Essences, went back and forth, but it dried my hair out so I asked my stylist for a recommendation in that same price range. She told me Tresemme is worth more than twice what you pay for it.
It does look like you’re looking in a slightly higher price range though, so Tresemme may or may not be the quality you’re looking for. 🙂

@Birdie Love: I’ve used that too and really liked it. My sister and mom still use it.

I use Healthy Sexy Hair shampoo and Joico Silk Result conditioner. I also use a deep conditioner once a week (Biolage Matrix deep conditioning balm). They are all pricey but are so worth it. I used to use cheaper brands and my hair would never grow. I have very dry, highlighted, overprocessed hair, that is also wavy. I needed a miracle and I tried these and my hair is finally past my shoulders. I also try not to shampoo everyday but I do have oily hair so it’s difficult not too.

Redken Real Control shampoo and conditioner with or without the masque weekly treatment. Works wonders! Makes your hair feel so soft and smooth

I’ve been using Loreal’s EverPure shampoo, no sulfates. My hair is naturally curly, sometimes oily, and pretty long. It makes my hair really soft and shiny. What I don’t like about it is the size of the bottles, it doesn’t last me as long as a giant bottle does, cause of the long hair…but it’s worth it. I ran out a few weeks ago and had to use some that was around the house, and it made my hair so frizzy!

I loooooove Chi Shampoo and Conditioner (same brand as the hair straightener). My stylist switched from Aveda to Chi and I love it. Smells so good! And a lot of times I buy it at Marshalls for 8 bucks a bottle instead of the salon at 14 a bottle.

If you can stomach the price, Kerastase is, hands down, the best brand on the market. Paul Mitchell, Redken, Joico, and Pureology are all good, mid-priced choices, though.
My guess is the problem with your current shampoo/conditioner isn’t the brand but the line. ‘Strength’ typically equals ‘protein,’ and protein is very drying unless immediately followed by a deep moisturizing conditioner. If you want to give Paul Mitchell another chance, I recommend their Color Care line — even if your hair isn’t colored. It’s gentle, non-stripping, and provides a lot of moisture without weighing your hair down. Their Smoothing line could be a good choice for you, too.

What do you consider oily? How often do you need to shampoo your hair?
I would probably get a shampoo for normal/color treated hair and shampoo twice just at the scalp. Then put the conditioner in starting at your ends and avoiding your scalp area.
As for brands I’ve heard great things about Kerastase but it is expensive. Joico is a good brand for conditioners and Bumble and Bumble had a coco hair mask that is good for dry ends. Just don’t put it anywhere near your scalp.

I second @Miss BBQ! Redken All soft leaves my hair SUPER soft, smooth and manageable! Geez, I sound like a hair commercial 😉 But I really do love it!
