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.  After about 30 minutes of torture my hair would submit nicely to being smooth, and straight.  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 shampoo

OGX Organix,

This was the first shampoo I tried that made a difference in my hair.  Before 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.  The itchy flaky patches were just about cleared up. For about a year I explored all of the different formulas this brand had to offer, the keratin one is my favorite.

Mark Anthony shampoo

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.


The first thing I tried from this brand was a deep conditioning hair mask, which I love. It’s great for pampering sessions with a face mask and bubble bath.  Since I  loved 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.

What makes these shampoos so great

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.  Plus I love how low maintenance my hair has become.  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?
