I have long, curly hair.  Well, it’s curly when I don’t straighten it.  😉

But my curls can sometimes be a hindrance to having a good hair day, and I don’t like that.  For the longest time, I was using Matrix Amplify shampoo & conditioner – because my stylist told me that my fine hair needed the lack of product weighing it down.

So, okay – I used it.  And then one day, while straightening my long hair, I realized that my shampoo and conditioner were working against me.  It was releasing the curls to be – curly – and I was then trying to straighten them out again.  Hmmmm.

Being the deal-finder I am, I know how to get good products (like Matrix shampoos & conditioners) and pay a fraction of the MSRP, so I waited for my favourite store to put them on sale and used my ubiquitous coupons.  I bought a litre of each Sleek.Look product and paid less than $13 for them – combined.

I love this stuff!  Even on days when I leave my hair curly, it’s not weighed down; the curls are manageable.  On days when I straighten my locks, the flat iron glides through the curls and I’m not fighting the texture of my hair to achieve the style I want.  I know it sounds silly, but I really don’t know what I’d do without this stuff.  It doesn’t build up on my hair follicles and gives me exactly what I want.  It’s a treat to use.  :)

Incidentally, a litre of shampoo & conditioner lasts me more than 6 months, so it’s economical for me to do it this way, too.  I’d go through a lot more drugstore shampoo & conditioner in the same amount of time and have less hair-successful days – and spend a lot more in the process, too.  It’s a win-win for me. 

What do you use and love? Link here with Mr. Linky for some linky-love! 😉

    It is so nice to find a hair product that works. I still have not found just one that I like. I buy so many that my cabinet is full. I am going to try the Matrix.
