Hair care repurchases: Rahua and 3 More Inches
Rahua shampoo and conditioner is expensive, but excellent. I use the original formula (there is now one to give added volume for fine hair, too) and it works well on my medium textured, wavy hair to gently clean and moisturise without making my scalp itchy, gives my hair great shine and controls its tendency to puffiness. I have a post with more of a description and the ingredients lists here: Rahua Hair Care. They also smell lovely - a spicy woody scent from the Palo Santo oil.
I wasn't hugely impressed by 3 More Inches when I first bought it and reviewed it; my final review of it is here: 3 More Inches final review. I'm still not impressed by the shampoo and conditioner and wouldn't repurchase those but I do like the Pre-Wash Treatment, enough to repurchase after I finished my first one. I use this primarily to re-do the lilac streak in my hair (I dilute Fudge Paintbox Purple Haze in the 3 More Inches to give a lighter lilac colour) - it works better than any other conditioner I've used for this because of the light texture and the fact it adds more protein (keratin) than oil to the hair (protein is one of the things that bleaching strips out). It seems to help the colour grab more evenly and last better than a richer conditioner texture does.
