I bought this shampoo and conditioner, but for blond hair, when I had colored it blond.
Firstly, I had a problem swallowing the price for a Pantene product. But I bit the bullet anyways, and took it home.
I noticed right after the first wash and condition that this product does absolutely NOTHING for blond hair. Keep in mind, I bought the products for BLOND hair, not red. The more I used it, the more it washed my color out. Seriously disappointed in this product.
All I can say is, if you're trying to preserve your blond hair color, this is NOT the product for you. It may work on red hair, but it did NOT work for me. Mine is still sitting here, months after I went and colored my hair brown, and going back next week. I don't have the receipt, but I don't care. I'm not getting stuck with yet another dud product.
I bought this shampoo/conditioner when I first dyed my hair red. I was skeptical that any colour enhancing shampoo would actually work on such a distinct red but this product really worked. It was a bright red colour coming out of the container and it lathered up really nicely. I didn't have to use a lot because of how well it lathered. I first noticed when I got out of the shower and started to brush my hair out was that the smell was so good. It made my hair smooth and very shiney. For months after going with the red and then dying it to a dark brown I continued to use this shampoo. After using the shampoo with my dark brown hair it starting to tint my hair red in the sunlight. It looked gorgeous and really does help preserve the red in your hair.
As we all know, artificially red hair is nearly impossible to maintain. It fades after the first wash, the sun makes it bland, using a flat-iron strips away the colour - if somebody or something so much as touches red hair it fades. And yet I still keep going back to the salon time and time again to adorn my head with red locks. (Shh - If anyone asks, it's natural)
I was lucky enough to receive this product from Chick Advisor and used it right away. What I should have done is taken pictures before and after but alas, I forgot. When I first used the shampoo I was slightly perplexed - only because the shampoo is actually red, and I mean blood red (don't worry though - it doesn't stain and once you start lathering it turns white). It had a great smell, lathered nicely and rinsed out as promised.
The conditioner comes out a light pinkish colour and also has a great smell - I'm obsessed with the smell of shampoo/conditioner but who isn't? It made my hair very manageable when combing it through my wet hair - I get a lot of tangles since my hair is curly so it's always nice when I find a conditioner that actually works with me instead of against.
At first, I definitely noticed a difference in my hair color. Even when it was still wet. It was nothing dramatic, which I don't think anybody would want or expect from a shampoo/conditioner. The change was subtle and merely enhanced the existing red that was in my hair. I definitely recommend this to anybody that has real or artificially red hair.
Another tip for those chemically enduced red heads out there - try showering with your water slightly cooler than normal and try not to rub the hair too much when you're towel drying.
