3 Shampoos to end Bad Hair Days.

A while back my hair was always very oily, frizzy, and staticy.  I would torture it with a blow dryer, and flat iron daily.  I loved my hair though, after about 30 minutes of torture it would submit nicely to being smooth, straight and flat.  Only to be oily, frizzy and full of static in a few hours.  It drove me crazy. So much that I resorted washing my hair with baking soda. Don’t do it. Seriously, it dried out my hair so much, it felt like straw and was always tangled. Then I discovered a new shampoo.

OGX Organix, was the first shampoo that I tried that made a difference in my hair.  Before I tried this my hair was very oily, but I also had dandruff really bad, it was more like that “cradle cap” that babies get.  With just one use my hair was soft, and smelled amazing, and just cleaner.  It didn’t get oily so quick like before.  After a week or two I noticed a huge difference in my scalp as well. I no longer had dandruff so bad that I would get scabs, or comb it out in chunks. (gross I know, I’m sorry)  For about a year I explored all of the different formulas this brand had to offer, this keratin one is my favorite.  I always recommend this to anyone asking about a good shampoo brand

Marc Anthony, I was in rite aid a few weeks ago and I had seen that they had this shampoo on sale buy one get one free so I took advantage of that to try this brand. I bought the one with Argon Oil first because it smells so good.  When that ran out and I was still lucky enough that they were on sale again (or still but that would’ve been a long sale) I bought the coconut one.  I like the one with argon oil best because I think the coconut one is for curly hair so it makes it a little harder to blow dry it straight. but my hair is still soft clean and clear. I would definitely recommend it.

Hask, The first thing I tried from this brand was a deep conditioning hair mask, which I love. it was great for pampering sessions with a face mask and bubble bath.  But loving the hair mask so much I decided to try the shampoo/conditioner too.  These worked great, and are particularly nice if you want to save a little money. This also left my hair smooth clean and clear.

The main thing I’ve realized is that all three of these are sulfate free which is why I think they work so great. Sulfates are detergents that strip the hair and skin of necessary oils, and can damage the cuticle of hair causing hair to look dull and damaged.  It may be 4x as expensive but 8 dollars is a small price to pay for a confidence boost.  I know I feel better, now that I am not stressing about my hair looking like I’ve not showered in a week.  Plus I love how low maintenance my hair has become.  I’ve never really had to brush my hair too many times in a day but I did after washing it then blow dry, then straighten it and hope it stays in place. With any of these I can use my fingers to comb through it, and blow dry it then done.  I may have lost my hair brush for a week to discover this.

Thanks for reading, tell me in the comments what is your favorite shampoo brand?  Have you tried any of these brands what did you think?

    I kid you not, I want to try these exact shampoos. I have dandruff too and it seems like no matter what I do, it won’t go away 🙁 I’ve already tried sulfate free shampoos, ones WITH sulfates, and my husband’s head and shoulders lol. I’ll have to give the first one a go too 🙂 Marc Anthony makes some pretty amazing yet affordable hair care products! I loved their deep conditioning hair treatment 🙂

    • You definitely should! No matter how many new brands I try I keep coming back to that one.
