The name Pureology is effectively that; no parabens, no sulphates, no additional unnecessary ingredients which unnecessarily cause more damage. I find most of the Pureology range which I’ve tried to be incredibly awesome and effective!!
So, I found this gem whilst looking for sulphate free shampoo post Brazilian blow-wave, as my hairdresser recommended it; still very grateful to her.
This shampoo specifically works well at maintaining the smoothing effect needed. It enhances color treated hair beautifully as it was specifically developed for color treated hair. It lathers well despite being sulphate free. Very little shampoo is actually needed, so a bottle goes a long way. Really worked well at eliminating frizz without weighing my hair down; combined with the Brazilian blow-wave, it had a straightening effect on my fine hair. Unfortunately, was quite expensive and not a budget buy but worth every cent.
I use cost per month on products and since it lasted me 4 months, my cost per month was R72.50 per month, equating to slightly more than non-professional cosmetic shampoos found in normal retail chains. It also prolonged my Brazilian blow-wave.
Usage tip: Shampoo should be use to clean the head, roots and scalp, not necessarily your hair, as you don’t want to strip the hair of its natural oils. You only need a coin sized amount lathered from the root of your hair and then work through any lather to the rest of your hair. Using this way, a bottle lasts a long way.
A real spoil is to use accompanying products in the range. I’ve used the conditioner which I will review. I can only imagine the effect with the rest of the range.
I’ve recently accepted that my hair is in fact fine and wavy contrary to straight, and have decided to wear it as such; so really looking forward to trying the Pure Volume Range by Pureology!
I really wish that salons close to me actually used Pureology, as this is a great brand!
