Intimidated about buying an expensive hair care product? Join the club. Taking the plunge and purchasing a salon grade hair care product is a scary choice for most individuals, especially when you peruse the ingredient label for your favorite drugstore shampoo and conditioner, which costs you only $10 and it includes the same ingredients as the salon shampoo and conditioner. But, don't be fooled, there is a difference between your drugstore shampoo and salon shampoo, despite the ingredient listing. Just like a Toyota Camry can look a Mercedes, and have all the right components to be a Mercedes, you notice the difference when you get behind that steering wheel.

If you are uncertain about what salon grade products to purchase, try Frederic Fekkai's Glossing Shampoo, if you don't mind a shampoo that contains many chemicals. Or even better, try Beauty 4 Ashes (r) GodHead Silky Smooth Shampoo if you want a salon-quality, all natural shampoo.

Frederic Fekkai
PROS: Frederic Fekkai's products are renowed for leaving the hair soft, shiny and silky, while providing it with a few hair goodies that restore damaged locks.
CONS: The products are very expensive for a very small amount and contain many toxins, sulfates, and parabens. Here is a listing of the ingredients in the Glossing Shampoo (r) : Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocobetaine, Cocamide MEA, Polyglyceryl-3 Laurate, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Decyl Glucosamide, Sodium Lauroyl Oat Amino Acids, Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters, PEG-18 Glyceryl Oleate/Cocoate, Polyquaternium-10, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides, Vitis Vinefera (Grape Seed) Extract, Glycol Stearate, Panthenol, Methoxy PEG/PPG-7/3 Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/PVP Crosspolymer, Prunus Amygdalus (Sweet Almond) Protein, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Protein, Glycene Soja (Soybean) Protein, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Polyquaterium-59, Cinnamidopropyltrimethyl Ammonium Chloride, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Extract, Fragrance (parfum), Benzopheneone-4, PEG-150, PEG-150 Distearate, Citric Acid, Trisodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Blue 1 (CI 42090), Red 33 (CI 17200).

Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead (r)
PROS: Their products are completely all natural, and contain natural soap agents, no parabens, no sulfates, and tons of hair repairing natural oils and extracts. The products have nice scents and are divided by hair type-ethnic and non-ethnic. GodHead (r) products have achieved popular acclaim for leaving dry and damaged hair softer, healthier, and stronger. They also were voted top out of current natural shampoos for producing shine, vibrance, and fullness in dull and thin hair.
CONS: The products are less expensive than Fekkai and give you much more; however, they are all natural and made fresh to order. Thus, you can only find them at select salons and spas and at Beauty 4 Ashes' website, wwwdiscoverb4acom.

As a stylist for over 15 years of both ethnic and non-ethnic hair, I would recommend you take the plunge and purchase a salon-grade product. I am not selling this to you as propaganda, I receive no credit or money for this advice. I only tell you this as a salon professional who has used both $1.00 VO5 and $5.00 Pantene on my clients' hair and $29.99 GodHead (r) and Frederic Fekkai on my customers' hair. Especially for my clients with hair coloring, chemicals, or heat styling, Beauty 4 Ashes (r) GodHead (r) products maintainsthe health, shine, fullness, and length of their hair better than cheaper shampoos. To put it simply, I have to cut their hair less due to split ends and they get to avoid the big chop and who wants to cut their hair when they didn't intend to?
