Shampoos and Conditions Intended for Curly Hair.

I see a lot of these around and was wondering they do anything dramatic. I use regular shampoo and condition - ie, not ones specifically formulated for curls. Do they really do a lot?
don't let your lovin' go to waste
all it takes is just one taste.

    Shampoo and conditioners geared towards curly hair can surely help with frizz control and definition. Also there is certainly nothing wrong with trying them if you have curly hair, but there are also a lot of other good shampoos and conditioners that aren't specifically geared towards curly hair that work equally as well.

    If you're talking about drugstore lines, I honestly think they are not much different than the non-curly products from the same manufacturer. They just call them curly and give them different packaging.

    So, call me cynical!

    Suzen is cynical. :wink:

    And so am I. From reading labels, the drugstore ones do seem to have the same ingredients as the regular stuff. Also, a lot of products geared toward curlies seem to have silicones, as if every curly's hair needs that. I usually stay away from stuff labeled for curlies and go for moisturizing instead.

    Just my $0.02.
