I love Kerastase! The shampoo and conditioners can't be beat. For drugstore shampoo/conditioner, I like Pantene. I am in love with the volumizing spray from Phyto. Its not cheap. And neither is my favorite hairspray from Frederic Fekkai. Incidentally, Phyto and Fekkai are two brands that I've never reviewed officially on Hello Dollface.
