I tried Matrix Biolage second and liked it. I purchased the 1 liter size conditioner, and then received the 1 liter shampoo for 88 cents at the salon at JCPenneys! (JCP salons have the best sales on hair products!) Having no silicone in the shampoo worked better for me, and the sulfate is a mild one. As it turns out some SULFATES are not so bad after all. The milder ones used by salon brands are good at removing buildup and after all, I have used them for years before and always had very healthy hair. It is just since I've started coloring that my hair has become more fragile and more dry.

I posted a recent picture in the tag post a couple of days ago, so you all know what my hair looks like right now, and.....all of this fun happens at a very bad price! Damaged hair!
I am looking for a nice gentle shampoo for hair that has been colored/highlighted. I have read terrible things about some of the ingredients in our daily shampoos (as is written in blue below). Right now I am using the Organix line and while it might be okay for normal hair, I am not satisfied because I don't feel that it is at all moisturizing. I need major conditioning after using the shampoo just to be able to comb my hair out afterwards.
***Do you have any good recommendations? What are your favorite shampoos (and conditioners)???
Has anyone tried the ALTERNA White Truffle shampoo that Jennifer Aniston loves???
Here is a guide to how gentle your shampoo is according to the surfactant used:
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate - very, very, harsh
Ammonium Laureth Sulfate- very harsh but better than the above
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate- better than the above, but still a little harsh
Sodium Laureth Sulfate-gentle, great pick!
TEA lauryl Sulfate-good pick
TEA Laureth Sulfate-good pick

Then we rode over to the new recreation center and as we walked into the workout room a fire alarm started blaring.
So, we rode down another street with only a few occupied homes and as we were riding by we recognized the wife of a doctor we work with getting out of her car. No, they don't live here (or so we thought). Turns out she left him for her hairdresser and they are living together in our neighborhood. Yikes, ....uncomfortable. We started pedaling faster to get home just as the fire engine blared down the street towards the recreation center!
Who says our neighborhood is boring???

So, maybe I'll use this one instead (a rating of 5 is only a moderate hazard!)
