Is this shampoo working for me?

Asked by Marchofthefox (787points) January 29th, 2012

Hello, recently I’ve been using Aussie shampoo and conditioner. I have thick, dry and somewhat frizzy hair. I have only been using this product for about two weeks and I have seen results. I wash my hair every other day, I don’t blow dry hair or use any heat products, and I trim my hair. But, my hair still feels a little damaged.. Is there anything I am missing?

I would recommend going to a hair stylist and asking for a thinned haircut look. What they will do is cut your hair with thinning shears and give it a layered look perhaps. But for your question to be answered I think the conditioner should have done the trick. Note that, shampoo rids the hair of its natural oils giving it volume. Conditioner somewhat lubricates the hair but the power of the shampoo makes it so that your frizziness will somewhat over power the conditioner. There’s a legend that the queen of Egypt would stroke her hair a 100 times a day and that was the standard of hair brushing/combing. Perhaps it will work for you? If you do prefer to keep long hair I would recommend going to a hair salon and asking them for the type of shampoo and conditioner you are looking for in order to tame your hair. Good luck!

The biggest difference between an $11 shampoo and a $4 shampoo is $7. So, it probably isn’t the shampoo. Maybe that’s just your natural hair.

I have just discovered that organic almond oil is wonderful for dry, scaly skin and also for frizzy dry hair.

I rub a little of the oil onto my fingertips and then over the surface of my hair. It tames the flyways and doesn’t leave my hair feeling greasy.

The label says that it can also be used for cooking since you can heat it to high temperatures. The “universal aunt,” I guess.

Three things I can suggest.
1. Trim off dead ends. You’ll be surprised how that will improve the overall look of your hair.
2. Moisturize :Use only a dab of VO5 oil and spread it on your palms and rub it into your hair startin at the ends where it is probably needed most. Do this before step 3.
3. Train your hair. Every night wrap your hair around your head laying it flat and pin it down with bobby pins and then wrap it with a satin wrap. The next night, repeat step 2 and 3 but wrap your hair in the other direction.
*Its best to do step 2 and 3 on the day you had freshly washed your hair. But make sure it is dry. You don’t want to create a moldy enviroment.
* Don’t do step 2 every night or you will have greasy flat hair.
* Once your hair has taken to being staight you won’t have to do this all the time. With just a little vo5 put on during the day, you will be good. However, in the summer be sure not to get a lot of sun in your hair if you have vo5. The oil will cook your hair and make it brittle and frizzy. Change your day lotion in your hair to simple sunblock. It will work through your hair and protect it from sun and wind damage. If you want. It also helps during the winter days when it is very dry and cold and windy.
I got the last tip from a hair dresser and it works. I no longer have frizzy hair in the summer.
