This product probably wasn't meant for me as I don't dye my hair but I love it. I'm a natural reddish blondish dishwater color...but using this has made me a light strawberry blonde without the hassle of dying my hair. I twice wash it, first half Tressa and half L'oreal volume filler, rinse, then all Tressa, leaving it on nice and foamy while I do the rest of my shower. It lathers nice, does clean my hair and leaves it soft and rinses easily. If the shampoo doesn't fly all over, I don't think it will stain anything and my scalp/skin isn't stained either. The best part along with the added red....my hair literally shimmers. My co-workers have randomly touched my hair because it looks so shiny and shimmery without being oily and weighed down. Love this!

I love the Tressa Watercolors - have been using for about 6 years. It lathers nicely, doesn't stain the bathtub (once you apply to hair and lather up - and it helps to add a little extra shower water once you apply it - helps to evenly distribute this shampoo.I leave it on for about 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly, mostly with cool water, then apply a conditioner. My hair is auburn/coppery and I buy the molten bronze and a copper color - (don't recall the name) and sometimes mix the two.It extends the color of your hair. Doesn't necessarily deposit any "rich" or "intense" color, but definitely livens up the color as you need, so you don't have to do root touch-ups so often.You can use it every night or 2 to 3 times per week (or once a week but it won't maintain the color long that way). And the bottle lasts quite a long time when using 2 to 3 times/week, which I usually do as I get closer to needing a root touch-up.It's so easy to work with and it keeps my hair kind of soft and silky which surprised me. (and no, none of the coppery or bronze colors have been so obvious that they've changed my hair color. They just make it slightly more rich in color (by that I don't mean "dark").LOVE IT!!

This shampoo is perfect for enhancing golden toned blond hair. My hair is heavily highlighted and as inevitably happens the color begins to dull after a month or so. The gold slowly recedes to the background and my color just doesn't look as vibrant as it does immediately following my highlights. My colorist doesn't use a toner (thank goodness because toners are a pita) and I'm hesitant to try one because the results are so unpredictable. I've had toners before but they've never come out quite right and they fade like crazy with every shampoo. So I see little point in trying to find one. The best thing I can do for my color is to use Tressa Watercolors shampoo in Golden Mist. It's a sulfate free formula that works like a charm. Toning shampoos aren't intended to cleanse the hair so I always use a sulfate free regular shampoo before I lather up with Golden Mist, which I leave on from 5-10 minutes. It leaves my hair feeling great, not dry at all, and it imparts a beautiful golden tone that's quite pretty. It does last through a regular shampoo or two, which is unusual for a toning shampoo ime. Usually, I have to use one every time but not with Tressa. You can always leave it on for a shorter or longer periods of time but I've found that 5-10 minutes is plenty of time. It doesn't make hair brassy or orange, just subtly golden, which really looks beautiful. My hair is soft and supple and not dry at all and I just follow the shampoo with my regular conditioner. Using this shampoo is an easy way to refresh the color without resorting to troublesome toners. Granted, the effects are only temporary but the experiences I've had with toners have been somewhat dismal so I'd rather purchase several bottles of Tressa than fool with unpredictable toners. I've thought about trying Redken Shades EQ in a golden shade, 9GI, but have chickened out because I get such good results with Tressa Golden Mist. Yes, it's expensive but if you want your golden blond hair to look it's best all the time, it's definitely worth the price. I've tried other golden shampoos but none have worked as well as Tressa. If you don't want to splurge, you can try Blond Brilliance Lathering Toner in the golden tone (at Sally's) but it really doesn't work nearly as well as Tressa. Just 5-10 minutes is all I need to keep my golden blond hair looking its best. I definitely recommend this product for all hair types. It's pretty awesome and great for maintaining golden blond hair.

My wonderful hairdresser gave me a bottle of this colour depositing shampoo when he did my bayalage a couple of months ago. I had the bayalage done originally last year and I let it grow out and I wanted it re-done for the spring/summer and it's now about a level lighter than before. The Molten Bronze looks red/orange when I squeeze it from the bottle and the end result for me is that my bayalage looks brighter without looking 'tacky'. Initially I used it just once a week after I had gotten the bayalage but now I'm using about 2-3 times a week as the colour has faded over time. I leave it in my hair for a few minutes before rinsing and I condition well as I find these shampoos can dry my hair a bit. I'm not sure what the full retail price is as my hairdresser usually sells me a bottle for $10 but it's worth the full price to preserve hair colour.

This is another gem from my hairdresser who gives me great prices on salon products. I do like the names of Tressa's color maintenance shampoos and Wet Brick is appropriately named. It's suited for deep brunette hair and is ideal for warm brown hues with terra cotta reds. I had balayage done last year and this shampoo has helped refresh the balayage during that time. (my hairdresser doesn't want to bleach my hair more than once a year) A friend at work asked if I had gotten my hair done after I started using this shampoo so yes, it really does deposit colour and Aveda's Madder Root shampoo is no match. My hairdresser is a big advocate of sulfate free shampoos for colour treated hair (plus my scalp is very sensitive and SLS irritates it) and Tressa is sulfate free. The shampoo is very watery and it can splatter everywhere if you're not careful. I'll apply it to the ends of my hair and then put up my hair in a claw clip for about three minutes before rinsing. I wash my hair about three times a week and I'll use this shampoo about twice a week. If you colour your hair regularly, I highly recommend getting this colour maintenance shampoo.
