Hair products are just as important for me to know the ingredients as food and skin products. 

 

The reason a lot of brands sell based on silly "soothing cucumber like a luxurious spa" is so they don't have to state the true, complete list of ingredients.  They sell on an emotional feeling and exaggeration.

 

Then for some, when a product makes their hair brittle, or heavy and oily, or fall out, they want to report the company to the BBB.  When it may have been just one ingredient that they should personally stay away from.

 

If I know I don't want alcohol, dimethicone, parabans, sulfates in my shampoo. I will seek that information first.  That's all I'm saying.  

 

By the way, all that shine, shine, shine promised from this product is what had me very curious since dimethicone is a type of silicone that improves shine.  But it also inhibits moisture from entering the hair over time and clogs pores.

the models in the demos get shine and volume from the "PRO" styling products the stylist uses. cmiiw but do they actually show the blow-out and styling on air.  they must paste down the model's hair with vaseline in the before pic.   

 

ita he should list the ingredients.   HSN shows the ingredients and there are cones in his cleansing treatments.   

 

i used his products when he came to HSN and my hair never felt clean when i used his poos/conditioner.   ymmv...

@Mindy D I agree,  So far, at least HSN does list ingredients and they sell Tweak'd too, so if I'm REALLY interested I'll check there.  But, I understand and support your effort to try and get QVC to follow suit.  

 

BTW, for those talking about "clean", it has no definition except what the person making the claim defines it.  QVC has a list of what ingredients are verboten to be able to claim clean beauty.  So, even if the manufacturer has a different definition, to be able to sell their item on QVC and claim clean it has to adhere to that standard, which, btw, is pretty lenient if you compare it to Sephora's standard for clean beauty.  Basically, it's like that touted ingredient that's more than likely at the bottom of the ingredient list.  A selling point and not much else. 

 

Personally, I have nothing against chemicals.  I have certiain ingredients I TRY to avoid for my own reasons although not always successfully.  All natural doesn't necessarily translate to safe.  Hemlock is all natural.

I haven't posted in years. But I have say I 100% agree witht the OP. As someone who has servere Peanut and Tree Nut allergys with Almonds being a main culprit I don't want Almond Oil in any skin care I'm putting on my face, body, or scalp. And its in so many beauty products! I try to do my research but I'm human and sometimes I miss it until after I've purchased the product only to have to return it. So now if the company I am purchasing the products from don't list ingredients I don't buy it! It may not matter now but eventually if enough people stop purchasing and demand change companies will change it.

@CoToni  This is such a good point! I don't have any allergies and I've never even thought about peanut and tree nut allergies in regards to beauty products, thank you for sharing your experience.  Its very smart of you to look out for yourself in regards to your allergies so that you can make an informed decision when purchasing beauty products.  I hope that you continue to find great clean and allergen free brands that work for you Smiley Happy.

I'm very interested in today's TSV voulumizing shampoo and conditioner set, A621390, but I have a motto I *try to stick to. No ingredients are listed for the products. I want to take a stand to get QVC to insist that food, personal care and cosmetic sellers list their ingredients on QVC. I know QVC has stated that it's up to the companies to do this but I think Q has enough power to get companies to do this.

 

Yes, I know I can get these ingredients somehow, There's already three requests for the ingredients in the Questions about the products section and eventually someone will provide the ingredients list or I can try looking at the website to get them, but that's not the point. I wish other shoppers would take a stand in whatever way they choose to get all these products to have their ingredients listed here. 

 

*I've occasionally broken down on this when others have posted ingredients or I've found them elsewhere, but I try to stick to it. 


Ingredient list available under auto ship at top of product description.

The before and after pics crack me up. It would be more believable if they fixed the before pic with normal shampoo and set and not mashed the hair down.

 

The same with products like creams, lotions and serums on before and afters. Of course anyone with a one time use would look better after one application. Ashy dry skin, apply product and presto the legs looks like magic!

 

Come on!

 

I do use the rise and shine shampoo and conditioner but I have to say my hair looks just as good with some other cheaper products.

The other thing is we don't need gallons of  conditioner sold with the shampoo. I never use that much and the shampoo is long gone. I would much rather buy 2 shampoo's or a smaller conditioner bottle.

@SportyShorty07 I've had to learn the hard way! Allergies are funny. For some people with a tree nut allergy almonds may be fine for them but sadly it's not for me. It took me awhile to recognize the name the beauty indudsty uses its called Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, also called sweet almond oil.

 

Thank you for your kind words. I can use Argan Oil so Josie gets a lot of money lol! But I have to check her other  products ingredients as well. There are brands that may use almond oil in one product but not the other. Who new Smiley Very Happy

@ladychas Thanks. I would never even have looked at auto ship. They must have left the ingredients off of the single ship by mistake. 

Ladychas has found the ingredients listed under the Auto Ship offer. There are no ingredients listed under the one time purchase offer.

@luvmyteddy4 , and I'm the opposite.  I only shampoo once a week but use conditoner most every time I wash.
