Hair Care Reviews and Complaints
Guthy Renker products very questionable quality
I tried this and it was overrated. Not sure why my skin turned red after use.
Kept using it thinking it might change and then saw the news where people were having big problems with Wen hair care products I quit using it. People's hair falling out from Wen. I had also tried that product briefly. One order.
Another scam beauty product. Both Guthy Renker products. The big corporation is making a ton of money off the ignorant consumer and little guy. They don't care about quality products.
The bottom line is the $$$$$. They don't care if it hurts people.
So the reason for this review is that I just watched another scam product by Guthy Renker crepe erase.....I am amazed they are still in business with their terrible reputation... and they keep making tons of $$$$$$$$
Sally Beauty Supply - Do your own research, don't listen to their recommendations
Over the last couple of years I've spent hundreds of dollars on hair products at Sallys. In the course of that 2 years my hair went from being in great shape to awful shape...dry, crispy, no life, no shine, like a sticky build up that won't come off, won't curl, won't do anything except frizz and break off.
Each time I would go in and ask...what can I do about my dry hair, an employee would direct me to a product saying use this, it is great. I would buy it, try it and then my hair was worse off.
I finally figured out what my problem was and nobody in the Sally stores I've gone to have had a clue about about this. My hair is on protein overload!!!!
I looked at all the products I had purchased there and every single one except a hair oil had some form of protein. But here's the catch...they are not always called "proteins" on the label...sometimes silk amino acids, sometimes wheat protein, hydrolized keratin...lots of different names for proteins!!!
To top it off, when I realized my hair was on protein overload I went in to a Sally's (before I knew there were a ton of names for proteins) and the employee said...here, this doesn't have any proteins in it...you'll be ok. I got home, read the label and it had silk amino acids...proteins!! It would have caused MORE damage.
If I had not figured this out myself I would have had all my hair break off. 3 days now with a no protein regimen and conditioning like crazy and my hair is already coming back but it is going to take a while.
My advice...don't listen to the employees there about what is good and what is not. A few might know but most seem like they don't know what they are doing and aren't qualified to give advice on the products.
Also...read the labels and know what you are using. Even some hairsprays have protein...it seems like the new buzz word! Look up what some of the ingredients are and what they do and can do...good and bad.
For me, I am now using baby shampoo, a conditioner without protein, using a few drops of olive oil as a moisturizer, etc....minimal products. That used to work for me before and I'm going back to simple is better!
To Sallys - please train your employees better!
