What is the best shampoo & conditioner?

I am working out 6 days a week and my hair is starting to take a toll from all the shampooing. I use to be able to use conditioner to restore it but now it is barely doing anything for me. I have tried Tresemme, Mane & Tail, and Suave. There are some pricey shampoos and conditioners out there but would hate to buy one and not get any results. Any advice would be appreciated!

All that stuff you've been using is crap. I've tried every kind of stuff out there, including brands that cost 10-30 bucks a bottle. Kirastese, Aveda, Nioxin, you name it. I always go back to Pantene Pro-V. ALWAYS. It is the only thing that makes my hair feels, thick, smooth, healthy, and bouncy. I've learned through experience.

I use the basic Whole Foods 365 shampoo which smells great (peppermint). I feel like I am not putting a lot of chemicals in my head.

Thank you! Pantene Pro-V it is!

Eww, pantene coats your hair in wax!!! That's why it feels soft, and "repaired". All it actually is doing is coating your damaged hair w/ a waxy buildup that will take a lot more shampooing w/ a clarifying shampoo to remove. And that is only going to dry out your hair further!

Alright no Pantene Pro-v, keep the advice coming! What can I use? I have heard of folks using mayo and olive oil, would that help?

I was gonna say what 9:48 said about Pantene. I only use that stuff before special occasions because the silicone coating does LOOK nice.

I find Dove to be very moisturizing. My hair's never felt softer.

I think it's a very personal choice, a hairdresser recommended one but it felt depends on what you want from it. Some people love Aussie but others say it's grainy. I think if you use the same one all the time your hair gets used to it and you become a bit immune to it, I do love sunsilk though.

is it possible not to wash your hair after every work out? my hairdresser says that the oils are good for my hair and that I should not wash it after every workout - it works ok for me becuase i have dry hair and I can hold out a few days and it still looks ok -

i use Bed Head- Dumb Blonde shampoo and conditioner. it's great! it's for color treated hair, so it's gentle but it cleans well, and conditions without a waxy buildup. my hair is in great condition considering i put it through a lot of stress. i highlight, flat iron it every day, workout a lot and it's still healthy... good luck!

7:57- i wish i could do that! i have an oily scalp, when i wash my hair in the evening after a workout by morning just from sleeping it's greasy already. such a bummer!

I like Paul Mitchells tea tree shampoo and conditioner. Actually it is the generic brand of Paul Mitchells.
I have tried one other tea tree conditioner when I ran out and it was awful so I would suggest that specific brand.
I have used it for close to 9 years now and it is the only one that never makes my head itch.
