    I wanted to love this shampoo because it smells great but unfortunately it made my hair feel like straw. I bleached my hair many years ago and this shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel the same and I have virgin hair again. I feel like this shampoo and conditioner is for those with straight hair.

                        I am looking for a shampoo that will not dry out fine thin hair but also one that is not so overly moisturizing that it makes it flat and lifeless. Would this be a good option? If not do you have a recommendation?

                        does this work for an oily scalp? I've had problems in the past with oil control shampoos, they either dry my hair out or make it feel awful. i have thin hair, with an oily scalp and dry ends.

                          A:

                          You can absolutely mix and match Living Proof products with silicone products, if you don't already have existing concerns with silicones. But if you find you're switching your hair care products frequently because of product build up or they "just stop working" we recommend you stick with Living Proof products exclusively to start a silicone free routine.
