Friday Favorites: Shampoo

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Friday Favorites this week! I really like hearing all these great product suggestions, especially when several people recommend the same ones! I'm definitely on the lookout for some of these shampoos!

Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner - These shampoos come highly recommended from two people! Here is what they had to say:
this is the best shampoo and conditioner i have ever used. they are for color treated hair -but i think anyone could use them. expensive - but awesome. and you use very little each time you shampoo. tip from my hairstylist: you only shampoo at the roots and let it rinse through and only condition your ends. i use the volumizing shampoo (pink bottle) and the hydrating conditioner (purple bottle). the line is usually sold at salons - but sometimes target will carry it.

I have been using this stuff for years! It is awesome! You used to only be able to get it at Salons or off the Internet but I'm pretty sure you can now get it at Bed Bath and Beyond. They have many different kinds but my favorite is the pink bottle which is the volume system. Great stuff! It tingles when you wash your hair!

Moroccan Miracle Oil Hair Treatment -- not shampoo but fits in the hair category ... sounds like a god product for anyone who wants to minimize their time blow drying.

It is a dry oil you put in your hair before blow drying. It will decrease your drying time by 50%. It works! I won't dry my hair without it. My salon started carrying it last year. One bottle is $40, but it will last a long time since you only use a few drops at once. It will not make your hair greasy, just silky and smooth!

Aveda Shampure Shampoo

Smells fantastic and really leaves your hair feeling extra clean and fresh!

Organix Pomegranate Green Tea Shampoo/Conditioner

I've blogged about this before -- it is fantastic though. It is a mid weight shampoo (if that makes any sense) so it tends to be my choice when I know I'm going to have a long day at work and minimal time to get ready for an evening event. It smells fantastic and the scent lingers in your hair most of the day but not in an obnoxious way. I found it at Target and its really pretty reasonable -- a step up from grocery store shampoo and a step below salon shampoo.
I should have taken the time to find a better picture

And a special thanks to Ellie for sending in her choices too! Here is what she had to say .... amazing considering she is only 3 months old!

Hello Aunt Katie! I read your blog...
My favorite shampoo is head-to-toe baby wash (the yellow one). My mom found this link for you http://www.johnsonsbaby.com/product.do?id=1&productID=1&filterID=0
This stuff is awesome! Between you and me, I don't really know about any other kind of shampoo. In my 11 weeks of life this is all I have used, but I can tell you it makes my skin feel so soft and it smells great! My mom thinks the best part is she can wash my whole body with this stuff, no need for a separate body wash. My favorite part is it doesn't even sting if it gets in your eyes. How awesome is that???? It is made for babies but I'm pretty sure everyone can benefit from this stuff. Give it a try!

Jonhnson & Johnson baby wash makes my hair soooo spiky and cute!

Someone made a special request for a topic next week, but I honestly can't remember what that was. Sorry! If you remind me again I promise we'll cover it the next time. But for now, send me your recommendations for LIP GLOSS (katherineburkett@gmail.com)

My sis-in-law loves Pureology. I still want to try the Organix one. If you found it at Target it must be affordable and these days that's exactly what I need.
