What Shampoo Do You Use?

It’s been just over a year since I left my job and thus left the wonderful perk of free and discounted cosmetic products.

Unfortunately $24 shampoos aren’t in my price range anymore.  Over the last year I’ve ventured out to the health food stores to check out what I could find that was more student friendly.

I have an oily scalp (not necessarily the same thing as oily hair by the way) and purifying types of shampoos have always worked  best for me.

I was a former slave to the Fekkai Apple Cider shampoo.

The absolute best shampoo I’ve found is:

Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Invigorating Shampoo

Since I’ve been so happy with this brand I decided to pick up some shampoo and conditioner for Brad yesterday.  He’s having problems with a dry and flakey scalp so I went to the Giovanni Wellness System.

I checked out quite a few products but I wasn’t happy with many of the ingredient lists.  If you’re buying a shampoo and conditioner for “soothing” you want the soothing ingredients to be high on the list of ingredients.  Both the wellness products list aloe as their second ingredient.  So again Giovanni was the winner.  I’ll let you know how they end up working for him.

Oh and they’re certified organic.

What shampoo do you use?  How do you choose the right shampoo for you?

  1. I’ve used Giovanni products in the past and have been very happy. Love that they are cruelty free. I have since go shampoo-less. It’s taken some time but my scalp/hair have adjusted just fine. =)

    I have had 2 clients LOSE their hair with that crap/ please stop using it and start taking advantages of connections with people in the industry. please and thank you. *ahem* me.

  3. I’m currently using a cheap shampoo from the local drugstore, but I’m not really happy with it. My hair is rather dry and frizzy, but it does get greasy after about two days. In the past, Dove and Pantene have worked quite well for me, so I guess I’ll switch back to one of those eventually, even if they are a bit more expensive.

  4. Right now I’m using the Redken one for color treated hair, because my hairdresser told me I had to. Ok, well no she didn’t. She told me if I wanted the red to stay longer I should get proper shampoo for colored hair, and Redken was on sale for like 60% off. You can’t argue with that kind of deal.
    Anyhow, I try not to think about the ingredients because I have such a hard time finding shampoo that doesn’t build up and make my hair gross. Plus, this stuff makes my hair so soft, and lasts FOREVER.

  5. I know you’re a lady who love the products but here’s a SUPER cheap and potentially miraculous hair cleansing solution.

    I just use baking soda. Doesn’t strip the oils but cleans the scalp and hair nicely. I dissolve a tablespoon or two in some water, work it through my combed hair and scalp before my shower and then rinse after I’m all done washing and shaving and whatnot. Been doing it for years.

    Definately let me know what Brad thinks of it. And the cost. I have a dry scalp too but I also have really thick hair so I have to use a lot of it. Med school steals all my money so I’ve been looking for a cheap solution!

  7. I love love love Giovanni hair products! I really struggle trying to find a natural alternative to drug store and salon products that actually works so Giovanni is perfect. The products are high quality, effective and rate low on EWG’s Skin Deep website.
