  • No they are not!

    There are different kinds for different needs. Some use cheap, poor ingredients. Others use high quality.

  • I am constantly looking for the Holy Grail of shampoo. Alterna makes a few decent ones but I have yet to find one that is really amazing.

  • I use shampoo's that are PARABEN free because paraben's are cancerous and very bad for you. I usually go for organic Alba or others but I am still searching for that perfect match!

  • I try and shop for the most inexpensive shampoo and conditioner but they have to be for color treated hair. So far my hair is in good shape and hasnt fallen out!

  • NO!!!!! Everytime I use cheap stuff, I have to use twice as much and the inexpensive conditioner never works!

  • I pretty much grew up in a salon, and I have tried most brands out there. I used to use Matrix until I moved to the desert and it made my hair look like crap. I ended up trying Bath and Body Works' signature moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, and I like it better than every single thing I've tried. It makes my hair really soft and shiny and smells awesome. I've used it for years now, and it doesn't leave a buildup. The stuff is perfect for my hair.

  • No the cheap stuff actually drys my hair out.

  • IMO shampoo is shampoo. None work very well for very long on my hair and I've tried super expensive salon brands and bargain basement ones from the dollar store.
