If you have come to this site on a web search for beauty or weightloss products -- please do not call us to ask about those products. We do not sell them!
We recently have been receiving many phone calls and emails from people who read posts about a particular product on these discussion boards, and then call us because they think we may somehow sell or be involved with that product.
We only sell Lamas Beauty shampoos and skincare products. For a listing of products we sell, please visit our homepage.
Please do not call us about other products that people may talk about on these discussion boards. Our Customer Service department will not be able to discuss any products with you other than Lamas Beauty products. While people here may discuss or express opinions about other beauty or weightloss products, we have no information or connection with any products but our own, so please do not call us about those other products.

As a professional, I can and will only recommend professional products.
The cheaper drug store stuff is not the same. The ingredients may sometimes appear to be the same, but it is the quality of those ingredients that make the difference.
Sodium Lauyrl Sulfate is a controversial surfectant (sudsing agent).
It is inexpensive and so it is commonly used in shampoos. Many people have reactions to that and it can irritate scalp conditions, making them worse.
I tell my clients that I will only guarantee the results of their services if they use the products I recommend. I will usually have a few that I can recommend to them that range in price. However, even the least expensive of the products is a product that I feel confident that they may use and be pleased with the results.
I had a client last night who NEVER bought products from me, then after I colored her hair, I gave her a new haircut. It was a short shag. Well, this almost 60 year old woman looked at least 10 years younger and loved her hair. She could never produce the results I gave her, with the drug store stuff. She bought shampoo, conditioner, volume&body lotion, texturizing cream, and hair spray. Her total was about $90. Of course I showed her exactly how to use each product. We discussed the benefits of the products, the smell, everything. I had her put the texturizing paste in herself, and showed her how to tweak the style giving it a professional finish.
Now, nobody at the drug store will help you that way. Clients are paying for the quality of the product plus the guidance I give them. Also, if a product does not work for them at home, they can bring it back to me, so there is no risk.
If your stylist is not doing all of this for you...especially one who gets your TR money... you need a new stylist!!!
Many people have a ton of stuff under their bathroom sink that they bought and no longer use, or that they don't like how it smells or works, or the feel. Many times on this board I read questions from people who ask how to use the products they did buy. I send my clients home with a note, my direct phone #, and they can always feel free to call and have me walk them through the styling.
This is a service business and it is all about serving and helping the client.
Now that I went off on that tangent, perhaps others will have recommendations for you.
I know that it is always better for any service I do to a client, to have their hair in it's best possible condition.
