There seem to be loads of different shampoos and conditioners coming onto the market each year. Each one promises something different – some claim to mend broken hair, others stop split ends, some make your hair stronger. The shampoo industry is a big business; two years ago, a large shampoo company admitted to having spied on a rival company, in an attempt to understand the secret of perfect hair.
Have you ever wondered if shampoos and conditioners actually do what they claim to do?
