They changed the formula - it is now drying and makes my hair a knotted, tangled and dry mess. I hate the new formula and will never buy it again. I had LOVED it for years and years. The old formula with the "moisturizing conditioner" was the perfect combo for my fine and slightly oily hair. I see I'm not the only person here upset by the new formula and feeling it is too drying and tangling - maybe they'll change it back. Until then avoid this product. Pureology please change it back!!!. UPDATE 11/24/2013: I AM TOLD THEY ARE GOING BACK TO THE OLD, ORIGINAL FORMULA ANY DAY NOW AND IT WILL SOON BE ON THE SHELVES.
This new formula is horrible. It tangled my hair so terribly like no other shampoo I have used & I couldn't even get a comb through my hair and I used conditioner. I was so disappointed I emailed Pureology to let them know. I used the old formula for years and loved it. It was my favorite shampoo, I'm really hoping they bring it back , it was non-drying and gave my hair a lot of body.
While I am on a fixed income, this shampoo is this the best I have tried. My hair is old hair and colored and this shampoo gives my hair volume and also I don't have the dry brittle look of older hair that is colored. The Pureology products are pricy but worth it as they give my hair a more youthful appearance and brought back a slight wave to my hair..
NEW FORMULA REVIEW:
I was an avid Pureology user. I have fine, color treated hair with dry ends. This new formulation is so disgusting. As like the other reviews for the new formula, it too made my hair dry, straw-like and tangled. It does make you need to use more conditioner and even that doesn't help. I used to use the Volume shampoo and the hydrate light for my fine, flat, bone straight, highly sensitive to products with any moisture hair, but this new formula is highly drying. Very disappointed and now I have to find a new volume shampoo. BOOO
This must have been reformulated...and being a huge fan of the line, I am disappointed that my last experience with this product was less than satisfactory. It actually turned my hair into a tangled mess each time I used it, and I'd have to use extra conditioner to get it back to normal. Yuck.
I have used Pureology off/on over the years, but I'm not sure what happened!?!?!?!?! The bottle has changed, so I'm guessing they changed their formula? It seems the price went up and the formula went down. The shampoo/conditioner combo used to make my hair very soft/silky (I have highlights/low lights and fine hair oily roots & dry ends ) now it just makes my hair a pile of straw - it's like trying to comb through matted hay :( They also changed the smell - it used to smell fresh and clean -- now it just smells blech! I'm very disappointed in the amount of money I spent for the performance of this product. I will not purchase again.
This review is for the NEW formula only. I love the Pureology line and used to use the Volume shampoo with the Hydrate conditioner and it was the perfect combination for my fine, long highlighted/color treated tresses, which tend to get oily at the roots but dry and easily tangled from mid to ends. While the previous formula provided the perfect combination of gentle cleansing and volume, the new formula feels much more stripping. Due to my highlights and fine texture of my hair, it tangles easily in the shower and the new formula of this shampoo left my hair a tangled mess while lathering. It was more clarifying than the Redken Cleansing Cream shampoo that I alternate with my regular moisturizing sulfate free shampoo. I know this product is marketed for color-treated hair and is sulfate free, but I can't imagine it is well suited for colored hair when it feels like I'm washing my hair with Prell. The smell is also a bit musky, like sandlewood, which I don't really mind, but I can see how some would compare it to that "old man's after shave" smell. I won't be purchasing this shampoo again, and will be a bit richer for it.
This shampoo is great for colored hair. Prevents fading, however, it does not create any volume and is a bit pricey. If you are more concerned about your color not fading and price is not an issue I say go for it. If you want more volume and would rather not spend $25 on a bottle of shampoo I recommend you look for something else.
Love this shampoo! This is what my salon uses and I love the results, I bought the smaller travel size bottle due to the high cost of the product. Even the travel size was $10 at Ulta. But it takes z very small amount and the smell is amazing. Downside would be that I can't tell that it really volumizes hair but there is a difference in hair and it looks so smooth and healthy and smells great all day. I wouldn't buy the full size unless I find a special buy on it b/c of it being so expensive but I do love it.
Having used Pureology products in the past, I decided to try their volume shampoo. I have think hair but it lacks volume. On closer inspection I realized that this shampoo is meant for fine hair, which is perhaps why it didn't work for me at all. It felt like I was washing my hair with cement. It left my hair in one big knot and it certainly didn't feel clean. I could barely get a comb through it afterwards. I'm generally not very picky about shampoo but this was dreadful and I can't believe I wasted money on this product.
