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.

This shampoo smelled great and cleaned my hair, but I didn't love it enough to leave my current shampoo. It was a great sample to have and to travel with, though!

I LOVELOVELOVE this shampoo! It smells wonderful! And my hair is so shiny! My hair is long, and it's super important to me that my shampoo smell good because I smell it all day. This stuff def passes that test! Also, I can use it forever without my scalp itching, which is super rare for me. I've ordered it twice I love it so much!

Conditioner
Purchased

I ordered the shampoo but received the conditioner instead. No biggie I purchased because the protect & detangler worked so well for my thick/dry hair. Disappointed the conditioner didn't work as effectively as the spray.

Great

Smells amazing and is great for people with terribly brittle or dry hair. It is definitely worth the money. This product was a great addition to my shower!

didn't notice anything amazing about this and my hair felt a bit dry after using this and the conditioner. It might have been something I needed more of to be able to tell.

loved the sample...
SampledPurchased

but for some reason, the full sized product was not as great. The sample left my hair clean and light and shiny with a touch of volume, so naturally, I ordered the full sized product. Unfortunately, it just was not the same. My hair was dull and heavy after using the full size for some reason. I won't be reordering this one.

Nice shampoo
Sampled

Loved the scent but was super strong. Left my hair feeling clean and soft. The shampoos scent stayed with me all day which was kinda nice, but it overpowered any other perfume I used.
