This is heavily promoted daily by a member of the hair board and then other members get convinced It’s the bees knees. Just look at the ingredients. It’s just another silicone product. I’ve yet to find anything better than Paul Mitchell’s super skinny serum.

I was hesitant to add a clarifying shampoo to my routine, since my curly hair is so dry and I was scared it'd completely strip it. On the other hand, I add a lot of hair product to my hair (oil, curl cream, mousse, hair spray..) and I suspected my hair wasn't absorbing a lot of the good stuff due to build-up. I came across this one that claimed to be a gently clarifying, and having had a decent experience with L'anza before, I decided to give it a try. I use it perhaps every two to three weeks, and I feel like it really does its job. It deep cleanses my hair, but it doesn't make it squeaky clean or a dry, tangled mess. I usually make sure to follow up with a hair mask, too, to replenish the moisture in my hair right away. I also used this a couple of days before dying my hair with semi-permanent dye to increase the longitivtiy of the colour. To be honest I'm not sure how much of a difference that did, though. It is deemed colour safe, however, and I haven't noticed it pulling out dye any worse than my regular shampoos. Keeping in mind that I do use Lush's shampoo bars normally, which some say strip colour a lot, that comparison may not be the best.The fact that it doesn't lather very much (probably since it's sulfate free) means I have to use quite a lot to clean all of my hair thick, medium length hair. Since it's not exactly cheap, that's a bit of a bummer, but I use it rarely enough that I a bottle will still last me a pretty long time. Another con is the scent - it smells pretty funky to me, but at least it doesn't linger much. + Cruelty free+ Gentle enough to clarify/deep cleanse even the driest hairs (though I would never use it daily like L'anza suggests you could)+ Sulfate and sodium chloride free+ Supposedly colour safe- Smells weird, almost like it's gone off? - Pretty pricey, especially considering I use way more than I do with other shampoos- Minor detail, but the design of the bottle makes it look very cheap. It came in a gorgeous purple cardboard box, but the bottle is an off-white colour that makes it look like a cheap, generic brand shampoo rather than something from a relatively high end saloon brand.

Like a few other reviewers on here I have fine, curly hair and Powder Up definitely is one of the key products in my hair regimen. Sprinkle it on the roots and then disperse the hair around gently with fingertips or even run a fine comb gently back and forth to get the product to disperse.I workout a lot and without this my hair would melt on top.One nice thing about it is that it's not too stiffening. It works much better than many or most root sprays I've tried and the look and feel of it is a lot more natural.The ingredients contain not only silica powder but also proteins which are good for building up hair so this product is not merely cosmetic.I'm still going to try other powders - Big Sexy makes one and I notice Redken (whose products I like a lot) also makes one. At my beauty store there were also a few different ones including powders which you pump and they spray on. Still Lanza's Powder Up is a solid product in this category.Note: You don't have to use a lot. When you sprinkle it into your hair you may not think that there's enough, but give it time to disperse and work its magic. Other commenters have said that it's not a lot of product in the container, but if you think you need that much you're using way too much.One last thing I will mention is that this product works well with Toppik.

Best silver shampoo I've tried so far:) I have brown hair with copper tones (my natural color) and a cool blonde balayage which I maintain with this shampoo.(NB. Silver shampoo is not supposed to lighten/ turn already brassy/ warm hair color cool toned. IF you want to lighten your hair or take out yellow tones it is only possible with products that contain peroxide. (John Frieda for ex. has one such shampoo) The idea is to start using silver shampoo -right away- after lightening your hair to keep the tone beautiful ;) ) As to this product, here's why it's so good.1 My cool blonde balayage is looking just as it did when I first got out of the salon 6 months ago. 2 I've tried maaany many silver/blonde shampoos over the years and this is the only one I've found that doesn't dry out my hair or scalp nor does it irritate my skin.3 Despite the deep violet tone, it doesn't leave color or other residue on my palms or scalp like some other similar products.4 Very conditioning. This leaves my hair smooth unlike some other violet toning products that have left my hair feeling like hay. 5 Makes my highlights and my natural color shiny as opposed to some violet toned shampoos that seem to make my hair a bit "matte " looking.

I purchased this shampoo based on the good reviews for it at Ulta.com. After using 3 bottles of this shampoo, my fine thinning hair was even thinner and now I have a dry, itchy scalp from using this product. Not pleased. It is too pricey for the lack of benefits.
