Anyway, I recently decided to try Renew's shampoo, and am very impressed. I have cropped, naturally silver hair. All conventional wisdom dictates that hair of my length should not be conditioned, but I've found that the hair is bushy and dry when I use conventional shampoos, even supposedly moisturising ones, so I've been having to condition.
Enter the Renew. It doesn't contain sodium laurel sulfate, meaning it doesn't really lather, which took a bit of getting used to. But I've found that after using it, my hair is very manageable and soft. It's a very mild shampoo designed for daily use and I would imagine it would be perfect for fragile hair. Plus, it is scented with rose otto and geranium oil, meaning it smells like *actual* roses (as do all the products)not nasty chemically fake ones. Very delicious!
I googled for it in the US but only found it listed on this site of all places. However, if you spot it near you, give it a try - I'm a convert.
