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.

Loved this shampoo

I have color treated, thick and wavy hair. I decided to use this and the conditioner - along with the sample size bottle of detangler from a later Birchbox - on an extended stay away from home. I love the scent and how my hair felt after it was clean. Will probably get a full size and keep the small ones for travel.

Shampoo

I thought that this shampoo definitely cleaned my hair well. I think it is a shampoo that I couldn't use on a daily basis because it seemed like it was a little heavy for my hair type and created some build up.

This is one of the best shampoos I have tried. It left my thin hair feeling full and bouncy without adding too much weight to them. Loved it!
