This is the absolute best shampoo I have EVER used on my fine, color-treated hair. It's gentle enough to prevent color-stripping but powerful enough to actually CLEAN my hair—a combination that is just about impossible to find. Never, ever has my hair been so shiny and bouncy (in the past, most shampoo/conditioners left it looking like straw). So happy my search is over! (Oh, and it smells nice and amber. Bonus!)

Couldn't wait to finish the bottle with this. I really wanted to love this product, but I found it to be just okay. Joico makes my HG shampoo (Moisture Recovery) but I was curious to try their K-Pak Color Therapy just to see if I'd like it as much. Turns out I don't.
This shampoo that lathers up nicely, albeit heavily. Really doesn't rinse out easily either. Leaves my hair a tad dry and coated-feeling. Also, my hair color actually seems to have faded since I switched over to this shampoo, which I wasn't expecting at all.
When it comes to shampoo, I feel like you don't need to spend a ton of money unless it's for a product that delivers really excellent results. I don't think this one does.
This is actually on par with most drugstore shampoos, but it costs a whole lot more. I will not buy this again.

Firstly I just want to say I have color treated thick course hair and its very thirsty! I had just gotten my hair color and my whole head felt like straw! I went to Cosmoprof and bought this WONDERFUL shampoo and condition set with the deep conditioning treatment with it and wow! Just when I was putting the shampoo in it felt half way to silk, then the conditioner was even better. Secondly my hair usually takes me up to 1 hour/half to style. It took me 15 minutes to dry and 11 minutes to style!! This HG stuff is wonderful! I will absolutely be purchasing this again!!!!!! TOTATLY RECOMMEND,

Until now, my shampoo of choice for my coloured hair was Biolage. It's what my colourist uses and that was good enough for me. And I was very happy with it (except for the lid, which was a real pain to open). Then I saw the reviews here for K-Pak Colour Therapy and knew I had to give it a try. Well, I LOVE this stuff. For starters, it distributes through my hair more easily, as it's more "liquid-y" than the Biolage, which is a clear shampoo with a thicker and slightly more gel-like texture. Colour Therapy seems to lessen the fading too. I'll continue to use Biolage since I've got a practically full litre sized bottle of it and so I'll want to finish it off (unless I fob it off on hubby, whose hair isn't coloured but he'll use any shampoo on his hair). But K-Pak Colour Therapy has already (in 3 or 4 weeks' of use) become my new favourite.

I used to use the regular K-pak shampoo and loved it, so I was hoping the color therapy version would be as good. And it is. My hair is fine, naturally wavy and frizzy, and I recently had it coloured (semi-permanent). This shampoo is very rich and creamy, it lathers beautifully and leaves my hair feeling nice. I have a tricky scalp which reacts badly to many shampoos (e.g. just about everything by Kerastase, most drugstore shampoos) it may be I have a touch of seb derm or scalp psoriasis; however this shampoo does not aggravate it at all. A little goes a long way, you don't need to use much at all. Excellent product.

This shampoo is the bomb!! Cleans my hair without drying it. Smells like plants??? Really earthy. I use this in conjunction with the color therapy conditioner. Definitely would repurchase!

This might be the best shampoo I have ever tried. EVER. And I've tried a lot of shampoos. :)

My hair is really fine and thin with waves/curls. My hair also gets oily really fast, I guess 24 hours after last shower, which means I wash my hair every day. This stuff doesn't make my hair greasy faster than usual, which is a big plus for me. It lathers really well and it's cleansing my hair 100%. My hair is dyed black and brown with highlights, and this stuff makes my hair colour glow and shine. It doesn't wash out my hair colour. Love it!

The smell is a bit strong but I got used to it (after using sweet scented shampoos for years haha) and I really like it now. The conditioner is really good aswell.. Will buy this stuff over and over again, probably forever, it's amazing. :)

I've tried almost everything on the market and I always find myself going back to Joico. I have never had such healthy hair using anything else. My hair is shoulder-length, highlighted, and naturally curly (frequent drying and straightening). I alternate the K-Pak Color Therapy shampoo & conditioner with the Moisture Recovery shampoo & conditioner. I won't ever make the mistake of buying anything else again!

This is the only shampoo and conditioner I use on my hair - it's so worth it.

I have dual-process salon colored hair - red highlights and "my brunette but better" - this shampoo keeps the color vibrant and gorgeous, and keeps my fine but thick, straight hair under control. No greasiness or issues with manageability, either.

My husband uses this, too (since it's in the same shower, lol) and he says it's great - not drying to his scalp and a little goes a long way.

Ok, so i hadn't really given salon shampoos a shot. I tried them here n there but didn't find anything too special about them. I figured that drug store shampoo and conditioner worked just as well. Well, I found a new favorite. I tried the Joico K-Pak Color Therapy shamp/cond. and loved them. My hair feels so clean and the 'feel' seems to last a couple of days. My hair feels lightweight but well conditioned. I will definitely keep buying.
