I had been searching for a new shampoo after moving to a VERY dry climate. I color my hair regularly and have a hard time finding color safe shampoos that don't weigh my very fine hair down.
I initially went for the volumize pureology but the sales associate said she also has fine hair and prefers the hydrate. I tried it and within two washes noticed a huge improvement in my hair. It's softer, fuller, shinier, and you really do only need a tiny amount.
I understand that it doesn't have the typical girly smell of shampoo but I like the tea tree type smell it has. I tried finding a cheaper shampoo but went back to it because it's my holy grail of shampoo.

I always get compliments on my hair but lately it's been very blah. I was using the Kirkland shampoo and condition. Someone recommended pureology. No. No. No. This stuff smells very manly. Not a pleasant girly shampoo scent. The conditioner made my scalp tingle. I can't imagine having the tingling every. Not painful or anything I just don't like that. I paid $60 at ulta. These are going back. All it did for my hair is make it feel roughand straw like.

I am trying to find a replacement for the old formulation of Redken All Soft shampoo and conditioner, which Redken changed last year (the new formula of that is terrible).
I have tried many product lines already, but the Pureology Hydrate range was one that had been recommended to me by several stylists which I had not yet purchased. They said that it was the best that they had used, and that even though I do not have color-treated hair, that I would love Pureology.
Given all the good consumer reviews of this brand, I was really hoping that it would work for me. I went to a salon in my town and paid $55 for a shampoo/conditioner set of the Pureology Hydrate line.
Unfortunately, it was awful on my hair. As bad as a $2 cheapo brand. I was so surprised.
My chin-length dark blonde hair is "virgin" hair (not color treated, not chemically treated, not even been subjected to a hairdryer or heated styling tools in the last 2 years!)
The Pureology made it:
-darker in color
-brittle and straw-like
-dry on the strands, rough-feeling
-oily at the scalp
-the scent was really overpowering and unpleasant to me, and it stayed in my hair all day and all night (I could smell it when I was sleeping)
-gently curl under at the bottom on its own volition -- looking like I'd used a curling iron (a strange effect!) even though I had air-dried it. This happened on all 3 days that I tried these products out.
My hair felt as if the Pureology Hydrate line had quite a bit of "cones" and proteins in it. My hair does not do well with either one. (However, the labels, which I read before purchasing this at the salon, didn't look too bad as far as I could understand the chemical names, so I don't know.)
If anyone knows of a good shampoo/conditioner product line that matches the effects of the OLD Redken All Soft line (before it was reformulated at the beginning of 2012), please send me a message via this site.

i will start out by saying i paid $100 to buy the bigger bottles of this shampoo and conditer and i think that is a lot of money... but i feel its worth it. i love this shampoo, it cleans really well and really hydrates my overprocessed hair. i use the conditioner and then an oil after the shower and let it air dry and i can literally just go like that (i do tend to curl or straighten it anyway though because i dont like how my hair dries wavy) the only thing i dont really care for is the smell, but i can live with it.

I think this a brilliant product if you know what you're buying. I use Aveda Damage Remedy, which is a protein enriched 3 step shampoo, treatment and conditioner a couple of times a week, and I brought Pureology as an "in between" shampoo. As quoted on the bottle, you only need a small amount, as it lathers up very well and the content is very concentrated. When you wash it out, your hair feels quite dry in the shower, and can easily tangle, which really surprised me. I used the moisture treatment for 5 minutes following the shampoo, which rinses out well but still left my hair feeling a bit knotted, particularly on the underneath layers. I let my hair dry naturally and straightened it the following morning, and can only say it is one of the best shampoos I've used. It really cleanses your entire head, and would be great for anyone who treats their hair and may have a build up of product, or who has naturally oily here. After using this product I can go days without washing it - it washes it like no other shampoo but does not leave it feeling dried out or lifeless.

I bought this as all the on-line stockists in the UK were out of Pureology Essential Repair and as this still has protein in it, I thought it would be ok to use til I could get Essential Repair again. I love ER as it is salt-free as well as sulfate free and I find that other sulfate free shampoos with salt in strip my colour quite badly (I have bright copper red coloured hair). I checked the pureology website and read MUA reviews and saw that Hydrate is also salt/sodium chloride free so thought I was on to a winner. However, the first time I used it, loads of colour came out in the shower water & after blowdrying my usually bright locks looked a dull orangey brown - this never happens with the ER! So I put my glasses on and checked the ingredients - lo and behold SODIUM CHLORIDE aka SALT was quite high up in the ingredients! Have now managed to get some more ER and my hair is back to brilliant again! So shame on Pureology for describing this as salt free when it isn't plus, if you've been using this after a Brazilian blow dry, I'm sorry to say that you have been majorly misled :( I'll be sticking with Essential Repair in future!

I was told by many stylists over and over again that this is what I needed to for my hair. I don't mind spending more money on quality products but for me I've never had good luck with any salon brands of shampoo so I was hesitant. I finally bit the bullet after reading tons and tons of great reviews of this stuff.
First of all it's super expensive. Everyone seemed to justify it by saying you didn't need to use as much as normal shampoo. I don't know but for me I didn't find that to be the case. I used less that's for sure, but that's only because I knew how expensive the stuff was. I definitely could've used more.
Second problem for me is the smell. It's not offensive but it's not good either. I enjoy a really clean smell or a girly floral smell but this wasn't either. Not a deal breaker but not great.
Lastly and most importantly this stuff just did nothing for me. Okay it did make my hair softer than generic drugstore shampoo but that's it. I got that same softness from a loreal shampoo that costs WAY less. What I wanted was to see less frizz and to see my hair dry hair not look so bad. This did not help at all on either of those areas like my stylists said it would.
I also found that using this shampoo and it's matching conditioner tended to leave my hair too greasy. I only used conditioner on the ends so I'm not sure what was causing this. My hair needs moisture big time but it's like whatever was in this stuff just sort of sat on my head and made it look greasy.
All in all this was a huge and very expensive letdown. I'm going back to loreal for now while I keep searching for something better.

My hair was in a very sorry state- I had just been threw a very stressful life situation and I highlight my hair, which is course, dry, frizzy, and crazy to begin- this lead to major breakage and my hair falling out in chunks! Pureology, and particularly, this shampoo has restored my hair, love it, it's expensive, but you get what you pay for, I was paying for the medium price products that didn't work for me at all

I absolutely love this shampoo. My stylist recommended it when I told her my hair felt dry and I needed something that would help make my hair feel soft and healthy. This shampoo did it. I love it, it doesn't weigh my hair down at all and you need very little product. I only use a dime size and it is more than enough. It is a bit pricey, but worth it. I have noticed a huge difference in my hair, will definitely buy it again!

Not sure about the "Zero Sulfate" claim. This does lather up very well, which leads me to wonder. The ingredient list does not say natural to me. All that aside, it is a great hydrating shampoo that does not leave hair feeling stripped like many other others I've tried. I was using Matrix Biolage for years until they changed (more like ruined) the formula. So I'm glad to have found a great replacement that is also kinder to my sensitive scalp.

Awesome shampoo! Ive been using it for over a year and only STARTING my second bottle! I only need the size of a dime to wash my shoulder lenth fine hair. It moisturizes great without weighing it down. The price is a little high but the bottle will lasts MONTHS!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Green
Tried a sample size I found at Ulta. I typically use Matrix Biolage Mousture Therapy (don't know the exact name but they're moisturizing) shampoo & conditioner which work very well for me. This brand is a mystery to me as so many LOVE their products & I have now tried the Volumize shamppo & conditioner & the Hydrate shampoo & conditioner & I absolutely HATED them all. Horrible smell & didn't work on my hair.

I'm on the fence with this shampoo. Like L'Oreal Elvive, it has a creamy texture and no distinctive fragrance. And like Redken Colour Extend, it does an excellent job at cleansing my hair. However, for my violet-red hair, it's probably a bit too efficient. For a brand that promotes "serious colour care", I was very disappointed with the amount of colour washout. Granted red washes out particularly fast, so maybe I'm just expecting too much from this brand. Maybe I'll try their new Reviving Red range when I can get my hands on it next.

I always keep coming back to this shampoo and conditioner altogether. I do admit I did stray this shampoo to try other new shampoo and conditioners that came out, but nothing compared to this best shampoo and conditioner! My hair isn't shiny and always dull, but this shampoo and conditioner always made my hair shiny, bouncy and healthy! I am pureology fan for life!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
The best shampoo I can find, the conditioner is amazing as well. The two combined allow my hair to feel soft and moisturized. I live in a dry climate and have used this ever since i moved here 5 years ago. Before I was using biolage by matrix and that was awesome too, just wasnt enough hydration for the dryer climate. YES it is expensive to use biolage, but worth every penny. And Ive noticed less breakage. If you want to cheap out, there are knock offs at sallys but they dont work quite as well. I feel like the pureology is the best on the market and ive tried alot of products that dont even compare.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
Ok HANDS DOWN the best shampoo ever, this and pureology nanoworks but this wins because it's like half the price. It makes my highlighted/bleached hair soft and detangled and conditioned even before I use the conditioner!!! Of course I still use conditioner which the pureology hydrate conditioner is also THE BOMB. But yeah, this shampoo is amaaaaazziiinngg and I love the smell. And my hair is clean but so soft after it dries. I have wavy dry frizzy hair so it's not easy. It's expensive but totally worth the price. Buy it!

Ridiculously expensive but you can save by getting the half gallon on ebay or amazon. It makes your hair tv ad worthy:)) and since I have a sinus allergy the smell is non irritating plus the conditioner smells really good.

I purchased this shampoo along with the conditioner that came with it because my best friend swears by it. She's been using this for years and is the only brand she puts in her hair. It's ridiculously expensive. Especially for the amount you get. I have to wash my hair every single day (unless I'm staying home) because it becomes a grease pit if I don't. I know that's bad but my point is that this shampoo costs a stupid amount of money for a small amount of product. The smell reminded me of a citronella candle. I didn't have to use a whole lot to get my hair clean, but I sometimes had to wash twice. The fact that it didn't lather doesn't bother me much because I have used sulfate free shampoo before. It didn't make my hair look any better, it didn't feel any better, it didn't really impress me at all. After using this for a month, I started to get scalp bumps and pimples along my hairline. After I stopped using this, any other shampoo I used didn't seem like it worked right. Sounds crazy, but it's like since using pureology my hair had rebelled and doesn't want to do what I want it to. I have fine hair but a lot of it, it's naturally straight and had moderate damage due to coloring. I will never
Buy this shampoo again. I had better luck with Suave.

My favorite shampoo of all time. makes my hair soft, shiny, and no frizz, and easy to manage. It feels sooo good while I put it on my scalp and hair. My scalp feels tingly and I can run my fingers gently through my hair. SMELLS AMAZING. My stylist recommended this to me and I am glad I bought it. I give it a 4 because of the price. Although, the price is worth it.

I am going to list some important things about this product that may make or break the way it works for you. I have natural medium brown hair. I went blonde, and I did not like it....so I went back to my natural color except 2 shades darker. So now I'm a dark brunette. AFTER i got my hair colored to a dark brunette to get rid of the blonde at a PROFESSIONAL SALON that specializes in hair color, the stylist who did my hair recommended this to me. I asked her what a good shampoo and conditioner would be for my over-processed, color-treated hair. THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:
The shampoo and conditioner are VERY concentrated, so you literally only need a quarter sized amount! I am not kidding, my hair is long (past my shoulders) and I ONLY NEEDED A QUARTER SIZE AMOUNT OF SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER> I think a lot of the bad reviews come from people using WAY TOO MuCH of this stuff!! either that, or it is not for their hair type because this stuff is great. you know the Pureology symbol? Like the circular color symbol??? My stylist told me you only need that amount of shampoo (the size of the pureology symbol on the shampoo/conditioner bottle) so yeah, about a quarter size amount.
WHILE WASHING MY HAIR:
"Wow, this smells soooo good!! OMG, easy to run through my hair! Wow, my scalp feels soooo REFRESHED AND TINGLY!"
FOR THE CONDITIONER: same thoughts except even easier to run through my hair
After the shower: My hair is shiny, soft, EASY TO BRUSH !!!!
Oh, I gave it a 4 out of 5 because of the price! SOO EXPENSIVE
