The Truth: I know what you`re thinking, `Why are you using a shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair and you don`t have color in your hair?` I use these products for the simple fact that it`s geared towards chemically treated hair, and since my hair is relaxed it`s perfect as relaxed hair tends to be dry, fragile and damaged.

This shampoo (sulfate free) has been in rotation with Creme of Nature Detangling shampoo since late April '09. Every time I use it, it makes my hair slightly stiff and strong but quickly softens up afterward, making my hair feel very moist & balanced. I also notice an increase in thickness whenever I use the shampoo. I prefer to use the conditioner as a deep conditioner with heat for 25-30mins. I notice minimal breakage when I use these products together. My hair stays hydrated all day long. Since these products have a low pH, my cuticles lay flat allowing my hair to feel silky smooth & shiny.

The only downside to the conditioner is that, I need to mix it with oil (EVOO) in order to get the detangling abilities needed for my hair. Also, these products normally go for $30-40 (expensive) at Trade Secrets, sometimes you can get it on sale for half price. It`s a hit and miss. Overall, I like them both! I love the fact that they both contain several botanical extracts, they`re pH balanced & vegan. These products do exactly what they say they are supposed to do. They are staples!

Price: $20 CAD each, 33.8 fl.oz

  1. HI, I came across the damage meter test designed to know what kind of treatment or conditioning your hair needs. This test is devised by a hair expert. The shampoo variants recommended in the test result would only help you to improve your hair if it is dull, dry or have Split ends.

  3. Stylista - The Abba Shampoo isn't loaded with chemicals, it's actually full of extracts and hydrolyzed proteins that will strengthen the hair. You should try Creme of Nature Shampoo's, the originals if you can still find them.
