    I have been told by a lot of stylists that treseme damages hair and is bad for hair..

    I think that's kind of a generalization. I'm sure there are people who use the Tresemme line who do not have damaged hair.  If you want to try some of their products and you check out the ingredients and they suit you, I think you should go ahead and try them.
    --I'm located in Western PA.   --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.   --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.   --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    Also, it looks like the Tresemme Botanique Nourish and Replenish Conditioner is CG-Friendly. In addition, 3/5 of the gels are also CG-Friendly, and the other two are as well if you are ok with Cyclohexasiloxane. There might be other products that are as well - I didn't check them all. Seriously, I can't figure out what that hair dresser is talking about.

    Stylists want you to buy their own products.  They make a commission off everything they sell, so they talk trash about drug store products.

    huh? I've never heard of such a thing. Tresemme products have been great to my hair, and I've tried pretty much everything.

    THANK YOU guys for being honest!   I know stylists/hairdressers are NOT all the same but most of them WANT you to buy...
