First, I want to tell you how excited I am to have found your blog and forum. It is the perfect combination of smarts and vanity - which suits me just fine!
Next, I have been reading up on the different surfactants and have a little more understanding of sulfate-free shampoos and the hype around.
Now, I have my eye on OI Shampoo and Conditioner. They literally cost an arm and a leg, can you tell me what is justifying its high cost please (perhaps except for it being a sustainable brand)? I noticed the shampoo has a good mild surfactant. But unsure why is the conditioner so expensive too!
