    Used to change it all the time! I found Alterna and I won’t use anything else now. No more wasted time comparing shampoos for me.

    Mine does that, it’s like it gets used to the shampoo and stops liking it. I switch from Aussie to Biolage whenever I run out which is about two or three months.

    When they stop producing it.  It’s happened a few times.

    Shampoo…I use a few of the same brands and maybe alternate different types.

    Never. The shampoo/conditioner that’s right for your hair will never need changing.

    I will say that I don’t change it on a regular basis. I have switched before because what I normally use and love is $55/set (Pureology), so I switched to Redken (same company) because it’s much cheaper. Unfortunately, I switched types after I ran out of All Soft, and I bought liters. I don’t really love the liters (Real Control), but I’m stuck with them until they’re gone (and then I can go back to Pureology because Future Mother-In-Law gave me some, yay).

    I will stop after a while. I voted other becuase it is usually when I notice a difference I don’t like or we have something else on hand. I was using Garnier, and that was great, but my hair wasn’t getting clean. We are now on to Head and Shoulders, and that stuff is awesome. I’ve been through Suave and Pantene before though too as well as some salon brands.

    My hair is currently doing the same thing now.  I would love to hear what Shampooo people swear by.

    I have two brands I alternate between whenever I get tired of the one I’m using (and it runs out).  But I only ever buy those two brands.

    Never – once I found that my scalp/hair absolutely adores Head & Shoulders 2-in-1, I refuse to mess with a good thing.  Got suckered into buying a bottle of Aveda (becaues it smells MAGICAL), and it took months for me to get my scalp back to normal.  Not a fun time.

    I have like 6 bottles going at one time usually, lol. I love trying new stuff. I think right now I have  L’Oreal sulfate free, Joico, Aveno, Aveda and Clear, plus a bunch of different conditioners too.

    The only shampoo that I absolutely HATED was one of the Herbal Essences cheapy ones. My hair would literally still be greasy after shampooing!

    I always use Garnier Fructis but I switch lines within that brand. Right now I’m using the one for color treated hair because I just got highlights and added some red to my hair. Then over the summer I’ll go back to Sleek and Shine and during the winter I use Fall Fight.

    @mrshunnybunches:  Stay away from anything sold in a drug store. Those are full of crap–chalk and silicone that make your hair look nice, but coat it in junk that just does damage.

    I HIGHLY recommend Pureology anything. Their Hydrate line is great (I know it says it’s for dry hair, but it’s pretty much a catch-all), though they have a number of lines for specific concerns (red hair, blonde hair, aging hair, severely distressed hair, etc.).
