If I could give this 0 stars I would. I am a professional stylist, so I come across a lot of different brands and formulas. This has to be be absolute worst shampoo I have ever used on myself and clients. When I used this on a few of my clients I noticed their hair didn't feel clean and was limp. So I have it a shot myself. My hair is a level 5 demi permanent color which I flat iron frequently. I have never used a shampoo which made my hair look more damaged, greasy, weighed down, and lifeless. I couldn't wait until the next day to wash it again with my hg biolage volumebloom. I would never recommend.

Unlike other MUAers, I didn't find this product to be that terrible. It's an average color safe shampoo. It doesn't strip my hair and lathers up nicely. The scent smells a little like household cleaning products, but isn't overwhelmingly bad. I would repurchase, but I'm also open to other shampoos for color treated hair. It does contain sulfates (hence the lather), but natural ingredients and extracts are also in it.

This left a residue after a few uses on my baby fine hair.

This is ok. I love several Paul Mitchell products that I've repurchased for many, many years, but this one was simply ok.
This just doesn't give me the fresh clean my other favorite PM shampoos do.

Unfortunately this product was a big miss for me. I've always used drug store shampoo and decided to treat myself to a higher end product. This product doesn't lather up but even worse doesn't fully wash out of your hair. I tried a few different times, using less product, just using shampoo and no conditioner. Nothing changed the result. Def do not waste your money on this.

The packaging looks very clean and I love the push cap.

This leaves my hair feeling very light and clean. It lathers and washes really gently and it keeps my hair colour.

It is not the most moisturizing shampoo, but it doesn't leave my hair feeling extremely dry.

The smell is also not very perfumey. Clean and simple scent.

Uggh. Horrible. My hair became sticky, strawlike, waxen and tangly all at the same time. I have thick, wavy, color-treated, shoulder-length hair that usually behaves decently, but this stuff made it SUCH a pain. And yes, I know how to rinse all the shampoo and conditioner out (I used both products separately and together and they both had this effect, so it's got to be the product formulation). Every time I brushed my hair, a weird white residue showed up on the boar bristles. It was disgusting.

I got the set with the conditioner and shampoo from Paul Mitchell (if I'd bought it at an unauthorized retailer, I would not be surprised it sucked so much, but I got it straight from the salon). Paul Mitchell does amazing hair color, but their hair color maintenance products have been disappointing.

I really really wanted to like it because they're cruelty-free, but no dice.

If you have it, return it for Wen by Chaz Dean or Gd from Burt's Bees: both have excellent shampoos for color-treated hair and they don't conduct or endorse animal testing. And a quick fix to undo all the product buildup: vinegar rinse!

Both the shampoo and conditioner are so poor, I will be returning them. I've never had a shampoo/conditioner I disliked this much. The shampoo doesn't lather. It's very difficult to spread throughout my hair, whether I use a little or a lot. It also doesn't seem to rinse out very well. The conditioner distributes acceptably, but is incredibly hard to rinse off. It takes forever and even then I feel it's still on my hair somewhat. When my hair is dry, it's not smooth at all. I can tell the product is still on there. I can't even run my fingers through it without them getting stuck. Horrible purchase. I wish I had read reviews prior to spending my money. I trusted the name and that was a mistake.

Good cleanser, gentle for color-treated hair. Doesn't add a lot of moisture which I like because I always follow with a deep conditioning hair treatment. It's ok for the price.
