From what I&#39;ve seen, your hair is pretty straight. Additionally, you can only use water soluble conditioners, which most just aren&#39;t.<br /><br />I recommend shampoos with less ingredients because they make my hair feel better, and helped ween me off shampooing so often (this saves so much money).
