My hair is thin, smooth and straight in its natural state but it is currently recovering from a year-long perm and is brittle and frizz prone.

Best shampoo and conditioner = TRESemme Smooth and Silky range; reduced my hairfall in surprisingly short amount of time and my hair (although still damaged and frizzy) has started recovering from its deathbed.

Worst shampoo and conditioner = L’Oreal Total Repair 5; smells intense enough to cause fainting fits within a 20 mile radius and makes your hair look like Bellatrix Lestrange’s mop.
