I just went to my hairstylist and got a really cute above shoulder haircut with layers. I knew I needed it because I noticed my hair getting dry and I couldn't run my fingers through without getting caught in knots. So my hairstylist said that my hair was very dry. She said, "Whatever you're using or doing...just stop. What shampoo do you use." I shyly admitted, "Herbal Essence sometimes since I ran out of Paul Mitchell.. (cough, cough)"
She said, "Yeah, that stuff's bad. Don't believe the ads. Use only salon products." So ofcourse I walked out of the salon with a $15 shampoo and $15 conditioner by Enjoy. I had never heard of that brand but the sylists swore it was good and moisturizing. So I wondered, were they just trying to sell me products or is it really true that drugstore products are damaging. I understand Herbal Essence may be somewhat harsh but is it really BAD,BAD, BAD for hair? I haven't washed my hair since Sunday now because I'm hoping I just need to get some of my natural hair oil to make it healthier and get less exposure to blowdryers/ flat irons.
I just want healthy hair that doesn't crack off from dryness. Is salon shampoo really the key?
