    I’m cheap, and I usually use Herbal Essences because I’m cheap and it smells good. 😛 And once in a while if I get dandruff I’ll use Head and Shoulders. I’ve also used Garnier Fructis. I refuse to use the super cheap VO5 or Suave because they give me dandruff! My hair is pretty healthy though because I don’t dye it and very rarely do anything with heat to it. It’s rather fine and about waist length and I’m trying to get it as long as possible for the wedding 🙂

    When I have the money I always stick with the Enjoy line, my SIL is a hair stylist so I get a discount, but even with it it’s pricey! other wise I’ll stick to a cheaper alternative to a sulfate-free shampoo. I switch out my conditioner though, I use really thick masks for my hair and haven’t found one yet that’s THE ONE lol

    I loved loreal pro vive (the yellow orange one) but cant find it anywhere ! I’ve been using dove/ suave meanwhile I decide which salon one to get or if it’d even be worth it…

    I used to switch every time I needed a new bottle.  Someone told me it was better for your hair (in high school, where of course they were an expert…).  But about a year ago I discovered the Tree Tea Tingle shampoo and conditioner at Trader Joes and I refuse to buy anything else!  I love it.

    @adoc86:  Me too.  The pink original one, to be exact.  I was thrilled when they started making it again.  After a few days of using it my boss asked what I’d done to my hair – it was curlier than usual!  I am 100% brand loyal.

    I always buy Bed Head – Dumb Blonde, and always in the giant pump bottles.  It makes my hair nice and soft and it smells delicious (like candy!).  I’ve tried a few others, but always regret it and go back to Bed Head.

    I used Profound for a couple of years, but it was pretty expensive, so I switched to less expensive brands.  I recently started using Pureology Hydrate, which I LOVE and plan to buy liters of very soon.  It’s more expensive but my hair is longer and needs some more TLC.

    For years I swore by Pantene, but the last few years they changed their formulas and varieties a bit and it didn’t do as much for me.  A number of months ago a hair dresser bee suggested on a shampoo thread going to Sally’s Beauty Supply and getting the brand Generic (which is the actual brand name) and try their knock off of Paul Mitchell for budget bees.  I gave it a try and it worked beautifully!  I got the large bottle and it ‘s lasted for close to 7 months, I’m going back for my next bottle this weekend.  It’s more expensive than regular brands, but it lasts so long you save in the long run!

    Not so much.

    I go thru phases… where something catches my attention and then I use that for awhile (months or years).  I do tho prefer brand name over store brand or salon brands.

    My current brand fave is Dove.

    Just for fun, I put together a history of the brands I can remember over the years that I have used:

    Breck – Prell – Suave – Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific – Herbal Essenses – Pert – Wheat Germ & Honey – Fruitis – Finesse – Pantene – John Frieda – and now Dove.

    I’ve used Head and Shoulders for the last 10-ish years!

    I tried the generic version once, and my dandruff went INSANE! Which is crazy, because I haven’t had a dandruff problem in years! Iguess it keeps it in control!

    I use the cheapest i can find that doesn’t test on animals. It’s generally the same one each time.

    When I stopped using kids stuff I started using Herbal Essences. I still use the exact same one now, and my hair is ridiculously healthy and soft. I only get it cut about once a year, but no one ever believes that because I barely get any split ends. I also don’t blow dry/curl/straighten it often though, I have a lot of it and it just takes too long.

    I am fiercely loyal to whatever brand is cheapest at the time. Usually Suave.

    Zero brand loyalty here. I like Pantene but not its price plus it’s fun to mix it up. When a friend of mine worked at The Body Shop, I used to be able to get their ginger and tea tree shampoos with massive discounts and loved those. Now, I usually just buy whatever’s on sale as long as its moisturizing.
