Beauty Protector

Birchbox Breakdown

You fell head-over-heels in love with Beauty Protector’s Protect & Detangle styling spray when we sampled it in our June box. Thanks to your rave reviews, Beauty Protector went ahead and developed this Protect & Shampoo for an exclusive early launch with Birchbox. It’s powered by pearl powder, which is rich in conchiolin, an ingredient that acts like the hair protein keratin. This fortifying ingredient teams up with other nutrients that guard against and heal the effects of heat styling (think frizz and destroyed ends). The result is glossy, bouncy strands that, yes, also smell amazing.

How it Works

In addition to honey pearl powder, Protect & Shampoo is packed with rich vitamins and a gentle mix of sulfate-free cleaning agents. This powerhouse lineup cleanses and nourishes your strands.

How to Use

Apply a quarter-sized amount to wet hair, concentrating on the scalp. Rinse thoroughly.

Amazing!

Just like the description says glossy, bouncy strands...hair felt and looked beautiful! Was sad when I used the last of the bottle. Will definitely be looking into purchasing this item and the conditioner.

This stuff smells great and leaves your hair soft and silky. The thing I love about it is that it doesn't contain any chemicals so your hair get's clean in a eco way.

Feels and Smells Great

I was able to get a few uses out of the sample size Beauty Protector Shampoo and must say I like it. The scent is attractive and it made my hair feel soft. I received several complements on the shininess of my hair. Will probably purchase.

Wanted to love this, but fell short
Sampled

I should start by saying that when I opened my box and saw this, I was thrilled after trying their detangling spray. I WANTED to love this, but I just can't convince myself that it's worth using again. The only redeeming quality is the amazing scent, really sweet and nice at first and then clean and subtle after use. I was dismayed by the fact that it barely lathers at all, probably because they don't use some of the gross chemicals that other shampoos use, but I just couldn't get past it. Made me feel like I had to use the entire bottle to get clean. My hair felt matted and weighed down after use.

A wonderful product for highly colored and processed hair
SampledPurchased

When I received the Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo in my monthly box, I loved the way it smelled. I have pink and purple hair and this is one shampoo that does not strip the color from my hair nor does it make my hair feel like straw. I knew I had to acquire a bigger bottle before my small one could run out!

Incredible scent and makes my hair look great

I was delighted to get this shampoo and conditioner combo in my Birchbox. I used them both on a trip *convenient travel size in the box* and they made my hair look shiny and clean.

Alright

Smells nice, works well. This was a perfect travel size to bring with me on trips but the more I used it the more it dried out my scalp...

It was ok

Fragrance was a bit too much for me and didn't lather enough but my hair was clean. I only had enough to try twice so I can't really say if it made a true difference on my hair.

Smells great like their protect and shine product but doesn't lather well. Felt like it didn't clean my hair. Was very strange...

Not blown away.

Kind of irritated my scalp. The Keim's shampoo I received in a previous box was much better. I didn't like the texture or the smell all that much.
