you can use a colour shampoo if you want but any normal shampoo would be fine. any brand names i know are australian so that wouldnt help you much unless you have the equinade range of products over there. if you do there is a range of colour shampoos available through them

I used the Rio Vista Sorrel Chestnut on Vega over the summer. When I used it, it made her darker, but it disappeared quickly since she was out 24/7 and didn't have a sheet on.

Dunno if this is helpful as I'm in New Zealand, but my friend tends to use on her livery/dark chestnuts Glo Bay shampoo... basically it depends on what shade you wanted to use if you were to use a coloured shampoo... if you wanted to make them really dark, I guess you could use a bay coloured shampoo, otherwise a normal chestnut one will work! :)
