I was using the Urban Antidotes #1 Re-Energize shampoo and conditioner, but it wasn't moisturizing enough. I switched to the #2 Recovery system and my hair feels fantastic! After a year and a half of experimenting on my hair at cosmetology school my hair was not super damaged, but very dry. The #1 system is more for every day use for someone with already healthy hair. The only downside about this shampoo is that it definitely gave me backne. There's no way that it's just coincidental that I've never had body acne in my life, and the week that I switch to #2 I have giant, painful pimples on my back. I now use #2 once a week, and turn my body away from the shower stream when I rinse my hair.
