This is my HG Shampoo...(and i can confidently say this only having used it 4x so far) My hair is fine, damaged and highlighted and before i had the blonde put in my hair my HG Shampoo was One'n'Only Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo (i prefer to use sulfate-free). Since having the foils this shampoo no longer worked well on my hair - weird but oh well. So..out of my cupboard full of the hundreds of hair products i have tried the whole of 1x and decided i did not like, came the It's a 10 Miracle Moisture Shampoo...it was expensive when i bought it, why not give it another go. *I had previously tried once on my virgin hair and was not a fan hence the "forgotten cupboard" placement* Anywho this time i was AMAZED, my hair.. my tangled, breakage-prone sorry excuse for "hair" was soft and conditioned and tangle-free and this was after just shampoo. Unheard of for me..i could have gone without conditioner..if i wasnt so addicted to conditioner...thats how goood this shampoo is! When it dries it is noticibly smoother looking and softer to the touch than usual. Im so baffled at how this stuff worked so poorly (for me) on virgin hair and so well on highlighted hair...i guess it really shows just how different hair reacts to products. LOVE LOVE LOVE will re-purchase for ever. I also love the mask but the shampoo and leave-in from this brand have transformed my hair.
For reference my hair is fine, highlighted and damaged...very very damaged (well the parts that havent yet grown out). first try of this i was not impressed (used with heat for 20min on towel dried hair and did not follow up with conditioner) and preferred joico kpak reconstructor. I tried again without towel drying my hair, using nooo heat and leaving in for 10 min followed my a moisture mask and i am muchhhhh more impressed. very detangled and manageable hair. will update after i have used more often =)

i have combimation skin and my main problem is congestion. and small 'under the skin' bumps. over the last few weeks my usually clear skin had started to go a bit crazy, i switched to this as i was using benzoyl peroxide at the time and think that tit and a harsh cleanser (neutrogena fresh foaming) was irritating my skin causing the breakouts. within 2 days my skin was 90% better! i have never had skin that looks as smooth and clear. AMAZINGG. the first few times i used this it kinda felt like it left a coating on my face which worried me..but it works great anyway. love love loveeeeeeeeeeee!!! (i also had a facial not long ago and was told i had beautiful sklin! yaya. UPDATE: Think this broke me out/clogged my skin after a few weeks of consistant use =( have now switched to Olay Sensitive Cleanser
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only - Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo

i am a product junkie, i buy new hair products weekly and often use things once and thats it, before moving onto the next thing. After using this shampoo i no longer feel the urge to buy any other shampoos and that is saying something! doesnt dry my hair out, leaves it SUPER SHINEY..i love it. FYI my hair is super damaged and dry. Also in Australia (melbourne) this product had the brand name "babyliss PRO" which is so strange, but meh. exact same as the pic above. =) UPDATE: After getting highlights this product is no longer HG..switched to Its a 10 shampoo...much better
i did not expect this to work for me, iv had such high hopes for products in the past that have had RAVE reviews, only to be dissapointed (and much poorer - yes im talking to you kerastase!!) but this seems to have LIVED UP TO ITS PROMISES. Mind you, ive only used it once, i can already see a difference, major shine and hair looks alot more moisturised. On the flip side in the shower, this did not feel that great, did not "detangle" like so many other reviewers have said. i rubbed a little in the veryy ends as a leave in - fantastic!! For reference i have fine...very damaged hair.
Fave product ever! nothing detangles like this! amazing! HG!!! use only on wet hair though. iy usually takes me about 5 minutes to detangle my hair, with this - 5 seconds flat.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner

As others have said, great slip and great detangling - especially for a no-cones product. Having said that i bought this to Co-Wash with and for that purpose it is not so great. Smells nice, lasts AGES but makes my hair greasy muchhh faster than v05 which is what i used previously. For a normal conditioner might be okay. Have also used as a leave in = average. Also, after using once a week, now, two weeks later my hair feels alot dryer at the ends than usual, since this is the only new product i have been using im going to blame it on this. Makes hair feel nice when wet though. silky etc.
Treatments -Frederic Fekkai - Protein RX Anti-Breakage Treatment Mask

I agree with the previous reviewer. The 1st time i used this stuff, the whole texture of my hair felt different after towel drying..my hair is so gross and damaged it usually cant even hold onto water after the shower...this time it did, and i almost thought i mustnt have rinsed it out properrly as it felt so smooth. Leaves hair smelling vanilla-ish all day...have only used 3x so far so cant comment really on the anti-breakge properties of this so far. i do wonder if its a very light protein treatment though..it doesnt really even feel like one. really like it - will repurchase,
This scent makes me simultaneously hungry and feel sick. Some perfumes give me a light headache, this is one of them. Smells cheap-ish after a few hours..much prefer the green apple one from this line. Would not re-purchase. Im not good at detecting scents/notes in perfumes so will leave that up to other reviewers, reminds me of a perfume you should wear in Autumn.
love this stuff! i find perfumes dont like to stay on me all day, but this one does for sure and i get lots of compliments (from both young/old male/female) when i wear this. unlike the red one from the same line..yuck, got that about 2 years ago and still have 95% of the bottle left...
I might like this smell for colder months, its a bit heavy and "mature" for my 22 yro self. I need to smell it on someone else i think to judge properly, but do not like it on myself. Im more a "fruity/light" person and this perfume is neither.

PROS: no silicones makes hair soft subtle frangrance CONS: expensive hair looks dry still/feels dry still not heavy enough for my needs
Treatments -Joico - k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor
heavenlyxox 3/24/2011 4:51:00 AM
Just re-purchased this product, the previous bottle lasted me about 6 months using about 1x a week. Makes my damaged hair so silky i prob dont even need to follow up with a deep-conditioner like with most protein treatments. I find it hard to tell whether protein makes my hair any stronger, it was bleach-fried..but managed to look quite healthy after using this stuff. cost about $27 in Oz. Look forward to using this product...would recommend!
I used this product about a year ago and liked it, make my hair feel silky while wet and shinier than normal when dry. Used again last week and had a totally different experience, my hair felt tangly and yuck. Would not use or buy this again. Joico Kpak protein treatment is 100x better. Cant comment on the strengething factor of the product, i didnt notice much of one, and was too expensive for what it was.
i would loveee this Shampoo, but i seem to lose more hair in the shower than usual when i use it, same goes for the treatment balm in the same range. such a shame!! It cleans well though and is one of the only shampoos that i have used that doesnt make my hair feel dry before conditioner. my hair also dried shinier and smoother (maybe a tiny bit flatter at the roots) than usual. I would recommend to anyone who wasnt paranoid about hair fall in the shower. my hair is damaged, so its prob just me.
