My HG shampoo for sure. I don't know why I haven't written about it before. I've been using this consistently for almost 2 years. Recently I was feeling experimental and tried some other shampoos, but NOTHING else works as well as this. I just purchased a new bottle, and I noticed the formula is different than the last time I bought one (they last a long time). It works EVEN BETTER than before. They took out the cones, and it seems even more gentle now. My color definitely lasts longer. I love the mild fresh scent, and it pairs beautifully with a new Tresemme conditioner I purchased, "Renewal Hair and Scalp". My hair is improving with every wash. That just never happens. My thick coarse hair is soft and tangle-free. Joy!
Fantastic shampoo! I noticed someone had commented that it had sodium lauryl sulfate and it actually isn't, it has sodium laureth sulfate which is fine also ammonium lauryl sulfates are fine too. That is why I bought this shampoo and it also doesn't have Methylchloroisothiazolinone & Methylisothiazolinone, which I have found all 3 in Aussie and Herbal Essences products. This shampoo left my hair, soft, shiny and manageable.
Yes. Yes to this. It was a great surprise that this product was actually good, it turned out being great. It has the richest lather in a shampoo that I've felt in awhile. It makes my hair silky soft without weighing it down. I use the conditioner too and it makes my hair look and feel so healthy! I bought it when I redid my dark hair, I really thought it was going to suck so I was very pleasantly surprised when this turn out to be HG for me! The conditioner is also great. I use a wide tooth comb to detangle my hair after I apply this in the shower, then rinse and I don't touch my hair during he drying process. It brings out all my waves and spirals (around the nape of my neck). When I straighten my hair it looks soft and shiny. I'm very happy to have found this combo! So far it hasn't seemed to strip my hair, I'll come back with updates if I remember with those very relevant details. Only complaint... wish it came with a Charlie Hunnam and/or a pump.
Being a fake redhead, I'm always looking for a new HG shampoo to prolong the life of my lovely colour that doesn't cost an absolute fortune. Tresemme's Colour Revitalising shampoo is sold just about everywhere and only costs a few pounds for a medium-size bottle so I really wanted this to work for me. I used this with the matching conditioner.
After 3 weeks of use I'd had enough: I only wash my hair 1-2 times a week and always try to use a good deep conditioner in my routine to maintain my already healthy hair, but this still dried my hair out horribly and made it feel like straw. Despite rarely washing my hair and having it coloured only a couple of weeks ago, it did absolutely nothing to retain my lovely colour - it looks like it was coloured months ago, not weeks! At the risk of further stripping my colour, I had to stop using it altogether.
As much as I wanted this to work for me it did absolutely nothing - I'd much rather pay the extra for my favourite Redken colour shampoo than have my (expensive!) coloured hair fade so fast!
I bought a 2-pack of the shampoo & conditioner large pump bottles at Sam's Club for less than $10. I have been coloring my hair at home for years. My hair is very coarse, thick, and tends to be dry. I only wash my hair 2-3 times per week, but I also heat style, so I need something hydrating that will hold my color. Overall I am very happy with these products. The shampoo & conditioner are both rich, don't strip my color, don't leave my hair dry, and smell nice & fruity. If you have oily hair, these may be too rich for you, but for my dry hair they work great. I have been using them for several months and have already purchased backups. For the price, you can't beat these.
This product is definitely intended for people who have colored their hair and it is EXTREMELY DRY and DAMAGED. Or I can see this product working for women who have very coarse hair texture. Otherwise this is not the shampoo for you. My hair is damaged somewhat from the multiple colorings of trying to fix a bad salon experience but apparently not damaged enough for this shampoo.
I wash my hair everyday because I work out everyday, and I still felt this shampoo left my hair a bit greasy. This shampoo definitely is moisturizing, but too much so.
I really want to stop using it but I'm broke so I'll use at least half then toss it.
Absolutely love this stuff, already on my second bottle.
I have been colouring my hair consistently for many years now, and because of heat damage + colour, I have the classic 'very oily roots but dry ends' problem.
I don't know if I believe the myth about your hair 'getting used' to products, but so far this product has worked consistently well on my hair. I find that it's great for every day use, not too stripping but definitely enough to clean out product build up and oil.
It's also fairly inexpensive which is nice, and the bottle is 900ml so it lasts forever, even between me and my sister using it.
Only complaint is that it's colour protecting abilities aren't outstanding. I'm not saying it does nothing, but it could be better. But still, for the price, packaging, availability and performance, you can't really get much better!
This is hands down the worst shampoo I've ever used. Instead of helping to make my color last, it made the color fade to the point that a week after coloring, I already needed to recolor. And that was with permanent dye. When I used this after coloring with demi and semi permanent dyes, it just about striped the color. This shampoo is also extremely drying, but it also seemed to make my scalp oily. It was strange and unpleasant. This reminds me a lot of those cheap shampoo/conditioner combos you get at lower-end hotels, except worse. Do not recommend this at all.
I really like Tresemme. It's the brand I can rely on for a basic shampoo and basic moisturizing conditioner. But that's why I don't stick with the brand.. Because it's just "average" to me. I do think this set does an okay job at preserving my hair color. Overall, this is good.. But there's nothing special about it. I always keep a Tresemme shampoo and conditioner on hand though, for when I just want a basic cleansing and conditioning for my hair. :)
I like the smell of the shampoo, but that's about the only positive aspect. I find this shampoo/conditioner combo makes my hair stringy and oily. I also found that it didn't help preserve my colour and it made my hair brassy.
