Hi Carolyn – I’ve often bought shampoo/cond before that I loved initially and with a few weeks switched for one reason or another – mostly because they dry my hair (especially at the back). Anyway, I am so very pleased with yours – my hair has regained strength that it had lost and is shiny – even in humid weather – and WITHOUT HAIR SPRAY. The only adjustment I made is that now I seem to need less of the conditioner! So thank you for your persistence in working for the perfect product. I couldn’t be happier.
