Palacinka Reader Question: Best Shampoos for Thick Wavy Hair

Several times a month we will feature beauty questions from our Palacinka Beauty Blog readers. This week, one of our readers has a question about the best shampoos for wavy, thick corase hair, with some damage due to flat ironing (sound familiar?).

Read on for our answers!

Dear Palacinka Beauty,

I´m from Guatemala and I need your help.

My hair is wavy, thick, coarse, and it´s very damaged since I use flat irons. My budget is not too high so i´m looking for the best shampoo and conditioner i can afford.

I´m wondering which of the drugstore brands could be the best... here I find: Loreal Elvive, Tresemme, Herbal Essences, Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Dove, for example... Would you give me your advice, on which of these would be the best for me... take care and thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Answer: The first step we encourage you to take is to decrease the frequency of your flat ironing, so your hair can begin to become healthier.

One of our favorite drugstore brands for dry or damaged hair is the L'Oreal Vive Pro line.

We've reviewed a L'Oreal Vive Pro version specifically for damaged hair. Since then we've had a tester with a similar hair texture to yours use their L'Oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Shampoo, For Medium To Long, Curly and Wavy Hair with great results!

This version softens hair, conditions hair without weighing it down, gives incredible shine and doesn't cause a lot of build up. Our tester always used the L'Oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Conditioner, For Medium To Long, That's Curly and Wavy Hair after shampooing, and several times a week would just air dry hair to keep the heat damage to a minimum. This is an excellent formula for the price, and it's very concentrated which also means these very large bottles will last a fairly long time!
