Product Rant: Garnier Ultra Mild Shampoo
The latest horror story is a shampoo I actually thought might be decent: it contains nut oils which I thought might be nice and soothing on my dry ends. The scent is a nice peach smell, but this shampoo is awful! At first I liked the oils that seemed to be helping out my dry ends, but after a couple weeks of use I have the most disgusting oil build-up on my scalp! Yesterday I washed my hair and once it air dried, I realized my roots were still completely greasy and my ends were drier and frizzier than ever. My hair feels oily, dull and lifeless, and dry and brittle on the ends. It doesn't even feel clean. Even worse, the peach perfume caused my scalp to get itchy and brought on dandruff. NASTY!
Is there any somewhat decent drugstore shampoo and conditioner without a harsh chemical perfume and that doesn't cause horrible build up? I've tried L'Oreal, Pantene, Timotei, Garnier - they all suck! I should just invest the necessary 40 Swiss Franks for my beloved professional Wella shampoo and conditioner. Everytime I revert back to drugstore shampoo to save some money, I regret it big time. *sigh*
