Yes To Cucumbers Color Protection Shampoo & Conditioner.

You probably spend a fortune, not to mention a lot of time, on your hair color. You need to protect it from fading, of course.  The best way to do that is with a sulfate-free shampoo. There is a new sulfate-free duo from Yes To made just for this. Meet Yes to Cucumbers Color Protection Shampoo & Conditioner.

This effective duo is formulated with Sunflower, which nourish and strengthens hair follicles, and Aloe to moisturize the damage that's been done by coloring. Hair feels thick when using and looks more healthy and shiny. Most importantly, I've been using these for two weeks since coloring my hair and it looks just as good as it did when I walked out of the salon. It smells super fresh too.

Shop for the Yes To Cucumbers Color Protection Shampoo and Conditioner at as well as CVS, Walgreens, Target and Walmart.

Ojon's Tunu Elastik Hair Smoothing Cleanser & Conditioner.

Whether it is those darn fly-aways you get in the winter or out of control frizzies you get in the summer, this duo from Ojon will help get your tresses back in order. Smoothed out and shiny too. Meet Ojon'sTunu Elastic Hair Smoothing Cleanser & Conditioner .

You see, this hair care system is enhanced with wildcrafted Tunu and Swa extracts, to gently smooth straight, naturally curly or permed hair without chemical action.

Besides smelling so wonderful, I cannot express how well these smooth out my hair. I suffer from frizzies in both the winter and summer, which of course are worse in the summer, but right now I am reaping the benefits even in the dry heat. I cannot wait to test it in the summer as well.

So, how does this non-chemical system work? Well, Tunu is a wildcrafted natural latex that is skillfully extracted from the bark of the Tunu rubber tree in the Mosquitia rainforest. It has been known in the rainforest by women for its unique ability to provide a strong, flexible, cohesive moisture barrier, especially when used in the hair. Along with Crambe Seed Oil, and Swa oil extract to help add a soft flexible bounce to unruly hair this amino acid rich and Omega fatty acids join together to help naturally deliver “the hair back into hair.” Finally, all of these ingredients are blended with wildcrafted Ojon oil which helps to hydrate, strengthen and restore dry, damaged or processed hair. The end result? Like I said, the smoothest and shiniest of hair.

Like all of the Ojon products, Tunu Elastik Hair Smoothing Cleanser and Conditioner are formulated without sulfates, silicone or artificial color.

The cleanser sells for $28 while the conditioner is $26 at and

Lovin' on L'Oreal Vive Pro.

I am finicky when it comes to hair care. Sure, I find some great products now and then, and while I certainly love the more expensive salon and higher end brands, my budget does not always allow for this splurge. I am constantly searching for great shampoos and conditioners at the drugstore, and I am happy to report I have found a line I am totally lovin' on. This is Vive Pro from L'Oreal.

In a selection of products made for specific hair needs, there is surely one for you.

Hydra Gloss - Hair is deeply conditioned with essential nutrients and shines with a high gloss finish. Hydra Gloss with Omega-Moisture Complex containing Omega 3 & 6, Royal Jelly and Olive Oil, adds advanced moisturizers and essential nutrients to condition hair.

Nutri Gloss - Helps curls shine brilliantly as strands are conditioned and smoothened to reflect light from root to tip. Nutri Gloss with a New Pearl Protein Complex infuses curls with a mirror shine and a soft cashmere touch:

Color Vive - This new and improved formulation of Color VIVE uses breakthrough anti-oxidant technology and 2 UV filters to seal in the vibrancy of your color-treated hair longer and protect it from fading.  The specially designed formula deeply moisturizes every strand and gently cleanses without stripping, fading or dulling color.  Keeps color truer, longer.

Glossy Volume - Fine, limp hair is injected with airy volume, body and glossy shine without weighing down hair. Glossy Volume with Weightless Plumping Complex adds airy volume and glossy shine.

I am pretty addicted to both the Nutri Gloss and Color Vive. I am not only using both the shampoo and conditioner, but my hair has been enjoying the Conditioning Treatment. I love to leave this on overnight, at least once a week, for the ultimate benefit. Love!
