Sabuj, Thanks for stopping by! Is your hair fine or coarse? Have you ever tried washing less? That may seem counterproductive, but here's my experience. I cut down washing to two days a week and my hair (which is very fine) seems less prone to greasiness. ~Catherine

Herbal Essences changed the formula on the Long Term Relationship shampoo from raspberry to pomegrante and it doesn't have the same effect on hair anymore....I have used long term relationship for several years as I have waist long hair but after seeing the change and the effect on my hair, I will be looking for a new shampoo

The first time I ever experienced Shielo Hair Products (I tried the Smoothing Shampoo first) - it was when my hairstylist used it to wash my hair a few months ago. The first thing I noticed was it's distinct smell which was very pleasing. I left my appointment and went to a party later that night, not thinking again about the product the stylist used. I actually was able to go about three days without washing my hair after that appointment because my hair was clean but not oily. Imagine my surprise when multiple times at the party, people asked me what product I used on my hair because it felt so soft and smelled so good!
