I'm on my second set of the shampoo and conditioner in this formulation, and I love it! In fact, I love all the scented green-bottle Suave S&C combos, but even though I think the rosemary and mint smells the best, this one definitely works the best for me. Leaves my hair silky, shiny, very manageable, and full of volume, but it's also easier to straighten and holds a curl longer. I don't know that it's doing a whole lot to preserve my hair color between colorings, but I also don't notice my color fading. Suave is so unpredictable as far as performance goes, but this one is a win for me.
