TIGI Moisture Maniac: A Calculated Risk

TIGI Moisture ManiacTIGI Moisture Maniac

A couple years ago, I started to have issues with my favorite shampoo and conditioner, TIGI Moisture Maniac. At the same time, it was being discontinued in favor of TIGI’s Urban AntiDotes line, so I discontinued use. Since then, I haven’t found a shampoo and conditioner I truly liked, including its supposed replacement. I didn’t hate all the ones I’ve tried since, but I haven’t been excited enough to repurchase any of them.

Imagine my surprise when I saw a giant display of the shampoo & conditioner duos it during a trip to Costco a little over a month ago?

…I bought two of the duos.

My scalp was happy, my hair was shiny and manageable without buildup. I think I can manage the fragility from the protein.

So here’s my hypothesis:

If I do not use TIGI Moisture Maniac exclusively, and keep a protein-free shampoo and conditioner in my rotation as part of a routine, then my hair will not mutiny (read: become brittle, fragile, and unpleasant).

I don’t like having to keep multiple varieties on hand, but if I temper the exposure and am not constantly exposing my hair to the protein-rich shampoo, I bet my hair will be happier, longer. This is a bit of a calculated risk, but I’m willing to take it on. I’ll report my results with this method in about three months (sooner if I ‘prove’ it sooner).

When it comes to your beauty routines and products, do you take risks or prefer to play it safe?
