So I bought this and the conditioner when it was a package deal for $24 for both of them, plus it was recommended by the lady who bleached my hair. She said that I wouldn't have to worry about my color fading and that it was good for people who suffer from a LOT of dandruff and/or dry scalp. So believing her, I bought it.
It smells pretty good, but it's not real strong. But the shampoo itself didn't really feel like anything special and neither did the conditioner. However, I noticed that my color seemed to fade faster when I used this! Before, I used the Vidal Sassoon Colorfinity shampoo and conditioner and I LOVED them, plus they kept my color in tack for a pretty good 4-5 weeks. But I will say that Biolage shampoo and conditioner did indeed keep me from having dandruff, but overall, I'm not impressed and will never buy this again.
Ugh. That's all I have to say. I spent close to $20 for a bottle of this shampoo the last time I had my hair colored, thinking it would be worth it to invest in a better shampoo. I found that my hair faded faster, and most concerning, I noticed a ton of hair in the shower when I was done. I even asked my dermatologist about it and starting taking biotin, then read some reviews online and saw others who lost hair using this shampoo. Back to my old Garnier and all is well.
This shampoo was ok...it lathered up & rinsed well,smelled nice too but that was about it.
This IMO didn't really do anything for my hair color (used with the matching conditioner) other than cleansed it.
I wouldn't repurchase.
This is Biolage's new color shampoo. It claim to have the anti-fade properties of the Orchid. I have not used it enough to comment on whether it does make your color last longer. However, it makes me hair look super shiny and pretty. I use it with the matching conditioner because I do not find it to be moisturizing enough alone. This is also paraben free!
