    It’s Costco, so I’m assuming they’re huge. Normally I love this about Costco with things I know I like, but I really dislike being wasteful and pause at the idea of buying a wholesale-sized tub of a new shampoo.

    You might want to try some travel sizes of highly-reviewed sulfate-free shampoos, or go to Sephora and ask for free samples. They’ll put anything in a little sample jar/vial for you.

    Oribe shampoos are great and have travel sizes. Perfect Hair Day by Living Proof does too.

    I just tried a free sample of Living Proof TBD styling cream, which has heat protection, and my blow-dry (with the round brush dryer) came out great. I didn’t put it in my roots though, I used my volumizing foam first up there.

    I also used the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo and conditioner.

    Since this post was started for fine, frizzy haired folks, I want to give a BIG shout out to Verb Ghost products. I recently received a big sample of the shampoo and conditioner and I LOVE IT. It’s truly weightless, moisturizing and has made my fine, frizzy 2A-2B messy mop a curly beauty. I’m buying the full size and I might try the Ghost Oil at some point, when I’ve gone through my 3,000 other heat protectant serums and oils.
    I know I’ve sung the praises of many products on here, but these were a real game changer for my hair.

    @anonymousse, interesting…that’s me, except my hair is medium, not fine nor thick. But I’m frizzy with 2A-2B.

    Reviving this thread to ask what do you guys think about lush shampoo? I bought some thinking they were good, used them and loved them but I just found out they have sulfates. What do you think? Have you used them?

    Are there two companies called Lush? The one I’m thinking of bills itself as being all-natural, I thought. (I use Lush face masks sometimes and it’s basically bananas and oatmeal.) It may be a different company, though!

    I bought them in London but it’s the same company.
    I just checked again and their first ingredient is sodium lauryl sulfate.

    It’s been over a year with the “brush” and I just want to say I still love it!8 usually shower at night but today I had to wash my hair in the morning and it was so great to use the brush. Also I just got my hair trimmed so it brought out the layers. I did talk to my hair dresser about products and she gave me a sample. What clicked for me is that I said I have all these baby hairs (a little breakage maybe) and she said everybody does. So I realize maybe the girls whose hair I admire do take some effort and product.

    Those little hairs may be new growth, not breakage.

    So, Sebastian Dark Oil. It’s not dark, and it feels more like a serum than an oil. It repairs, cuts frizz without silicones, smells wonderful.

    I’ve had it a while and love it. I was using it just on my ends, over other products, but my hairdresser recently mentioned her daughter’s hair is like mine and that it looks best when she uses ONLY Dark Oil.

    So I tried it alone for air-drying, and lo and behold! Just that tiny bit works better than 3 products. I didn’t put it in my roots, but throughout most of my hair. Like 1.5 pumps, maaaaybe pea-size amount. It also has UV shield to protect from sun damage, which is good because I have fresh highlights.

    Cyclopentasiloxane and Dimethiconol are listed in the ingredients I see. The cyclopentasiloxane will probably be ok as it evaporates but dimethiconol is a heavier silicone and may build up. The cyclopentasiloxane also may not evaporate if it’s there to help the dimethiconol stick onto your hair.
