Even though our sacred blowouts and keratin treatments are v important to us, theyre expensive AF. Since Im neither rich nor famous, I have to pay for like, rent and shitty wifi so unfortunately, I cant make an appointment every time I get split ends. Thats why I pay more than Im willing to admit on my shampoo and conditioner. But you shouldnt spend hundreds at the salon only to destroy your hair with the shampoo and conditioner you use at home (duh). Some brands we love are actually way harsh and ruin your hair rather than help it, so here are sets you should toss in the trash and sets to use instead.
Beware Of The Plastics:
1. Pantene Pro-V
Pantene was under fire (figuratively and in a way, literally) last year when one hairdresser in Maryland claimed his clients hair started smoking when he began his usual ombr process. Uh, WTF. He says it was because the client used Pantenes Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner for over a year. After an amount of research I havent done since college, several Pantene Pro-V shampoo and conditioners contain unhealthy ingredients such as sulfates and long-ass words that end in -cone. Silicones are what make you feel easy, breezy, beautiful with shiny hair, BUT over time they act as plastic coats that cause build up, making your hair look greasy and lifeless. Sulfates cleanse your strands, but too much rips off your hairs natural oils and dry the fuck out of it. Cue why we need sooo many keratin treatments.
Not only are all of them not 100% sulfate-free, but some of them also contain salt and silicones. We all know that salt can give us great natural waves, but realistically, how does our hair feel after being in the ocean? Like a fucking haystack. With the combination of the big three no-nos, long-term use of OGX products can leave your hair feeling unmanageable, brittle, and frail. If youve used this after a keratin treatment, you most likely wasted like, $300. Sorry to break it to ya.
My once go-to shampoo and conditioner has been placed on my shit list. It has been for sometime, honestly. During my visit to the salon for my first ever highlights, my hair dresser scared the shit out of me by telling me my hair took the dye too quickly. When I told her I used TRESemm, she basically said if I want to have hair, period, stop using it. Some of their harsh ingredients (sulfates and salt) take a toll on your poor strands, making it hard to receive coloring and volume after a period of time.
Sooo, before you say, But Ive been using this shit for months and my hair is perfect, the thing is, you wont see these long-term effects right away. Hence, fucking long-term. Since most of these ingredients are basically in all shampoos, theyre not terrible to use once in awhile or, simply in moderation. But everyones hair is different and reacts differently. So if youre wondering why your keratin treatment isnt lasting as long as it should or youre finding its getting harder to style your hair, Im just saying you should probs check to see if these life-ruiners are in your shampoo. If they are, ditch em for these guys.
