  1. ISOPLUS Conditioning Shampoo was reformulated to heavily contain sulfates and on top of that I can't find it in any drugstores, but Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo fits all the criteria and you can find it at Walgreens and Target. The Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque can also be added to your drugstore conditioners list :)

  2. What about LA Looks gels?

  3. Great review! You hair looks like silk! And Yes it has grown a lot! Thanks taking the time out to do this!

    Hair Thickening Cream
