IdecidedtotryboththeshampooandconditionerseparatesoIcanseethedifferencethetwomake. The shampoo I used with a regular sauve conditioner, green apple. It left my hair managable. I did use oil on my ends after the shower. The next day my hair was greasy. Which I knew it was from the shampoo because that conditioner and oil is what I usually use with my sulfate free shampoo which I don’t have super greasy hair next day after wash.
The next hair wash I used my regular shampoo and the Aveeno conditions combo with my hair oil. My hair was not greasy the next day. My hair felt soft once dried after using the conditioner. The scent is okay for the conditioner but I prefer something more fruity and long lasting.
In the end I determind that whatever is in the shampoo is making my hair greasy, which is super surprising since it’s a sulfate shampoo.
Pros for shampoo:
- Makes my hair managable
Cons for shampoo:
- Contains sulfates
- Makes hair greasy the next day
Pros for conditioner:
- Conditions my hair
- Makes my damaged hair manageable at the ends
- Smells nice
Cons for conditioner:
- Honestly this is a nice conditioner but very run of the mill and generic.
Verdict: I’m not a fan of the shampoo due to it containing sulfates and making my hair greasy so pass on the shampoo. I do like the conditioner because it does moisturizes my hair. The conditioner for me is meh. Sells for about $7each at your local drugstores, walmart and targets.
