Well, I am working on a new perfume review but it’s not ready for prime time yet. So lets do.. haircare!

I am a very lucky man. They say that mens hair comes from the mother’s side of the family and Mom’s Black Irish heritage gave me a head of hair that grows like weeds and will likely make me an old man with a full head of silver hair. Of course, you have to wash your hair. Back in the day when I was living with my colorist boyfriend (who would change my color every couple of months,) I used the terribly expensive J. F. Lazartigue line to try to mitigate the damage from going to cola black to platinum blond. Now that I don’t bother coloring my hair I have been using Kiehl’s, specifically the energizing stuff you can use on your body and an all-in-one shampoo.conditioner in the brown bottle. I like them because they seem not to strip my hair completely and they come in a gigantic bottle. They aren’t even terribly expensive.

So what are you using or what have you tried and hated? Let us know in the comments.

    I have healthy, thick enough hair, but uber-sensitive skin and develop allergies to almost everything. Insanely expensive (8oz $30!) Alterna Caviar Volumizing Shampoo gives me my best shot a a good hair day, minus the itch, and I make that bottle last for up to 6 months. Occasionally condition with Maple Holistics Silk, which has real vanilla for scent, and never irritates. Always on the lookout for hair and body products for sensitive skin.

    I like the Alterna moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, and lately I’ve tried the Kiehls amino acid stuff and like it. A great inexpensive shampoo is Maui Moisture -the first ingredient is aloe!

    My hair is thin, fine and strange. I can’t use leave in conditioners because it makes my hair all greasy. I use the CHI Thermal shampoo and conditioner. It gets my hair clean but doesn’t make it all greasy and it smells great.

    I have gone the opposite way, since I got some skeleton’s hair, I guess, and frequent washing is its enemy. I use conditioner to run through my hair (it seems to get the bulk of product out but since the bulk of product is just leave-in conditioner, who knows) and I do a quick scalp scrub while I’m in the shower. I envy you your follicles, darling. My bestie and El O both have that sort of hair and I make them nervous sometimes, with my covetous glances 😉

    You do have great hair! 🙂 My grandfather was black Irish, also. Unfortunately, my hair is fine and thin, but curly so that helps. I use Paul Mitchell products. My favorite has and always will be the awapuhi shampoo–love that scent!

    This past year I did the big change from medium brown colored hair (which I had been coloring since age 21), to natural silver. It’s still got a few months to go to get rid of the blonde ends. Blonde you say? Yeah, I bleached out the brown and did an intermediate platinum blonde step. It’s 50/50 right now. So, I’ve been trying out some of those different shampoos meant for silver hair that are dark purple, like Schwartzkopf Color Freeze and AG Sterling Silver. I can hardly wait until it’s all silver.

    I have used Aveda hair products since 1993. I have strayed a few times to try other products after reading reviews, but always go back to Aveda. The range of products have grown over the years and now offer remedies for all hair types. Aveda keeps my hair healthy and I love the aromatherapy scents.
    You were a cutie in 1988 and so fortunate to have inherited a healthy head of hair!
