I had been using professional shampoo/conditioner for over a year (L’Anza). I’m in Canada and was buying in the US and since our dollar is not the greatest, I went back to store bought (L’oreal). I styled it today and I am finding a lot of frizz in the crown. It could be the hair spray I used.
Wondering if many use professional shampoos? I know there is a lot of marketing and they may not necessary be better.
Looking for a good quality, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for colour treated hair.
Thank you for any info 🙂

I use Kirkland moisturizing shampoo and conditioner from Costco. It is SLS-free, so safe for colored hairs. Online rumors say that it is actually Pureology. I’ve used both, thy seem the same.

Aveda makes a good color shampoo. I use Redken sometimes, and they have both a color line and a line called So Soft, which is what I use for a deep conditioner. I have pretty frizzy curly hair, and this leaves my hair nice, soft, and shiny.

I second Redken all-soft and their color care line – even the color magnetics is good. Pureology is another good one. I use the Light Conditioner, so it isn’t so heavy on my ends. Both brands are safe on color treated hair.

I use Suave and White Rain. 😉 Once a week I use Nexxus humectress, fine flat hair gets frizzy in winter.

Kerastase chroma riche. The conditioning mask. Nothing beats it 🙌🏽

I’ve been coloring my hair a long time and I get really dry, frizzy hair if I don’t use a proper salon-qualty shampoo. I wash every second day, I condition when I wash, and I alternate products.
What color is your hair? Different brands do well with different colors and treatments.
Some quality brands are Biolage, Bumble and Bumble, L’Occitaine, and Aveda (but not the Aveda blonding shampoo– it can stain). They are expensive brands but well worth it.

weightwatchers152: I have been very happy with Shu Uemuru shampoo and conditioner, just be careful not to get the shampoo in your eyes. Something in the shampoo irritated the heck out of my eye when I got some in there….

I don’t know if there’s a difference, really, but I do know that my friend, who is a professional and therefore has access to the professional stores and websites, always stocks up on shampoo when Chatters has sales because it’s a way better deal!

weightwatchers152: My hair is definitely calmer and I get less scalp build-up when I use professional products. I use RedKen and a Paul Mitchell Tea Tree one, and I alternate products as a PP mentioned. Once a week or every other week I use It’s a 10 hair mask.
Chatters’ sales are actually pretty decent when they’re on. I was in a Regis salon the other day that had a really good “buy X get X free” deal, but I don’t quite remember the details.
ETA: I used to really like the Regis Olive Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, but I don’t actually know much about the ingredients – I do remember it was less expensive than the other professional shampoos/conditioners I was buying at the time. I’ve also heard a lot of people complain about it drying their hair too much.

Thank you these are some great suggestions!
My hair is a very deep brown/almost black.
I have very oily hair that by the second day, screams for a wash.
I am also looking for a way to stretch out my washes, a non-aerosol (easier to use in my opinion) dry shampoo.
Drying my hair with a round brush takes me 30+ minutes.
There must be something I do not know to make things easier, lol.
My hair dresser says my hormones probably have a lot to do with my hair situation… 🙂

I use either Biolage or Redken for color-treated hair. My hair isn’t colored, but it is chemically-treated and has responded very well to these products. Worth every penny!

I use Redken products too, and swear by them. I have dry, frizzy hair and use the clear moisture shampoo. My hair needs very little styling after a wash and a blow dry as a result of the shampoo. I briefly tried Living Proof and wouldn’t recommend.

mandabride00: I would LOVE to use kerastase anything but can’t bring myself to pay for it (especially since I’m a licensed cosmetologist so I get discounted prices on everything but kerastace!!!)
weightwatchers152: I use pureology but I get it much cheaper since I’m licensed. I’m not sure I would use it if I had to pay full retail. but, I only wash my hair 1-2 x a week so a liter bottle lasts me a very long time. To stretch out your washes, I’ve learned it takes a lot of patience. your hair produces so much oil because we constantly strip it out by washing it. You have to give your hair a chance to get used to not washing. It took me about 5 years to get to this point of washing so infrequently. Start with every other day for a while then cut back. It may take months to be able to go another day. normally day 1 & 2 are hair down days for me (as long as it’s curled, if it’s straight, forget it) day 3 may be a half up day. Day 4 and past are all hair up days. And I mean, sock bun with a headband, slicked back with tons of hairspray to make it look less oily.
