It’s so not about shampoo or conditioner… quite frankly, anything done in the shower stays in the shower. It’s all about how you handle things once you’re dry and your hair is still wet.
I drench my hair in Infusium Leave-In Treatment, then spread on handfuls of Ouidad Tres FX Gel OR L’Oreal’s Anti-Frizz gel… then I air dry or diffuse. That’s it. It’s all about product… and lots of it. I like the above products because they’re alcohol-free (so they don’t dry out your hair), and they don’t get crunchy or flake. Your curls become soft, defined ringlets with bounce.
As far as selecting a shampoo conditioner combo, I never understood why perfume companies didn’t get into the hair care business. I’ve spent hours squatting like a Thai person in a rice field searching for a fragrant shampoo that does it for me. Since the product is what goes into really shaping my hair, I rely on the shampoo for the fragrance. If only Creed would learn from moi.
Now, the hair down there is awholenother story: one restricted to conversations about conditioner. It’s all about conditioner and Tend Skin. I’m a big believer that bush is back; I don’t care what Playboy says.
