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.

Nice product!

I received the shampoo and conditioner in one of my boxes and was so excited! The samples were the perfect size to throw in your suitcase. I did not notice a difference when I used it on my hair, but I didn't really care for the smell.

I love the beauty protector line! I have the shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner. The smell is great and fresh, slightly coconutty, but not overwhelming at all. Doesn't dry out my dry, curly hair or weigh it down. I can go much longer between shampoos using this product, and have recommended it to several friends.

too heavy for my hair

I have fine, highlighted hair, and I have to use volumizing shampoos and conditioners to get my hair to do anything. This product was too heavy for me, but I think people with naturally coarser hair may like it.

Love it!

This shampoo smells AMAZING. I was so sad when the bottle was empty. After using this my hair smelled so good all day and stayed very soft. I would recommend this product to everyone!

My favorite shampoo
Purchased

Pros: smells great, no residue, great for color-treated hair

Cons: I wish it came in a larger size! I feel like I have to constantly re-order.

Shine and smell!

The shampoo threw me at first because it doesn't lather that well, but I love the finished product! I think the combo of shampoo, condition and detangle is necessary.

wish it was a little more hydrating

I have color treated hair (organic color) so I am always looking to add moisture back in. I liked this shampoo/conditioner combo but did wish that it would lather better. I like more of a pureology lather hydrating shampoo rather than this.
