L'Oreal eversleek my hair is still dry and frizzy?

I tried the sulfate silicone free shampoo And conditioner L'Oreal eversleek and was disappointed that my hair was so dry and frizzy from it! I have also recently tried that was recommended is trader joes refresh shampoo ( not sure if it's sulfate free) along with tresemme naturals conditioner which seemed to be better and the la looks sport gel. I also co washed with just the tresemme conditioner. I always get color done to cover grays but about 2 months ago I got highlites and I am wondering if this is making hair even drier ( although if was dry before).
If I use the la looks gel and I only co wash with the tresemme naturals cond, how often do I need to use shampoo ? Thanks everyone
THis line did nothing for my dry, thirsty, porous curls. I tried it once several years ago and hated it. If you color, chances are you need something much more moisturizing. I can't sing the praises enough of Sally's GVP conditioning balm. It's about the thickest, most moisturizing, and most economical condish on the ground. It sells for about $6 and is a knock off of the Biolage CB that I think is over $20 now. Walgreens also has a knock off-I think it's called BioInfusion.

You also probably need to do some moisturizing deep treatments (DTs). Again, to start w/ I'd use the GVPCB and then add your own ingredients, such as olive oil, coconut oil, aloe, honey etc. These are relatively cheap and available to all on the ground, and therefore a good place to start.

As for shampooing, that's really a personal preference and will depend on your hair's properties, how oily your scalp gets, and your water quality. Some here only co-wash, some low poo once a month to clarify and some low-poo 1-2x/week. I low poo usually 1x/week and then use a clarifying poo like KC come clean 1x/month b/c I have hard water and get really bad mineral build up on my hair. If I had diff. water, I'd probably be full CG b/c my scalp almost never gets oily and I have med-course, super porous, dry hair.

Thank u for the tips. My scalp never gets oily I only wash my hair when it gets too frizzy to deal with. How do u know if u have hard wAter? I have well water?
The too frizzy to deal w/ means your hair is craving moisture! If you go several days b/w "washing" and each day your hair is getting frizzier and frizzier, it means that it's losing moisture. So basically, what you're doing is washing it in order to re-condition. You sound like you're a good candidate for straight CG (meaning only conditioner washes). You need to get the moisture level up in your hair and DTs will def. help w/ that. You want your hair to retain that moisture so that day 2 and 3 will often look better, not worse, than day one. (although not everyone gets multi-day hair for a variety of reasons).

Also, when conditioning in general, give your hair the amnt. of conditioner that it needs, not what's on the bottle. My hair takes palm fulls of conditioner-think about conditioning until you get a wet seaweed feel to your hair, and try then only rinsing a small amnt. to distribute the condish-not wash it all the way out.

You might never need to shampoo. If your hair isn't greasy and you're not experiencing product build up from gels, etc. then why do it?

As for hard water. When I moved to where I live now 5 years ago I was strictly co-washing, hadn't used a shampoo in about a year. My hair started to dry out, turn to straw, and then fall out. I couldn't figure out what was going on. I went swimming and then used a sulfate shampoo afterwards (I know now that I needn't have done that-but in this case it was good that I did) my hair felt 100% better after the shampoo. The minerals in the hard water had built up and coated my hair. I've now learned that I can use a low poo to remove this build up before it starts w/o damaging my hair w/ a sulfate. HTH!

I use the citrus refresh shampoo from Trader Joe's and love it. Its very light but cleanses well without stripping. Its definitely more clarifying than other shampoos I've tried but I do love it. It is sulfate free
I agree with everyone about a more moisturizing conditioner. If you wanted to try another Trader Joe's product, their Moisturizing conditioner is fantastic. Its not the Refresh line- white bottle with a blue top. Its very creamy, moves through the hair well, and creates great slip if you want to leave some in. And super cheap!
I was just about to look up some review when I found this thread, funny how that works.

It sounds like we purchased this shampoo and conditioner at about the same time, and I've been having similar problems, except for the moisture part. I looove that my hair is lighter and more moisturized without that gunky feeling, but It seems almost too light. Do you guys know of any tips on products or methods that can help weigh down or tame the flyaway frizziness?
