Yuko are a Japanese brand, created in 1996 by Yuko Yamashita and I understand the brand's speciality is Straightening. Yuko worked together with Phiten, a Japanese sports, health and beauty company to create a range of products. I'm not sure how long the range has been available in the UK, but I'm surprised not to have heard of them before now as the products are so great.
I've been using the Phitenbella Shampoo and Phitenbella Treatment which are the products designed for dry/chemically treated hair and they contain both collagen and keratin. I note both products contain silicones. I must stress as always that I don't mind one jot about silicones, and I think my hair really needs them, most of my adventures with silicone-less shampoos have resulted in fly away, frizzy and eventually dry hair. I only mention silicones for those who prefer to avoid them. Personally, I actively look for them in my hair products ;)
I've been using these regularly, and these alone, for several weeks and my (which is quite processed) is soft, shiny and silky smooth. I don't feel any product build up and an essential thing for me, it rinses away with ease so I don't ever feel I have product in my hair.
Highly recommended. You can purchase from http://yuko-london.com/ where the Treatment and shampoo both retail at £12.50.
