Birchbox Breakdown

Talk about an all-star lineup. If you love Protect & Detangle, you'’ll go bananas for this unbeatable hair trio. Not only does it smell amazing (seriously, we’re hooked), but this exclusive kit tackles a spectrum of hair concerns to restore tresses to the peak of health. The sulfate-free Protect & Shampoo strengthens hair with pearl powder, a natural shield against heat and environmental damage, and a host of healing vitamins. Protect & Condition adds a double dose of pearl powder while nourishing and hydrating with shea butter and apple, lemon, and orange extracts. Finally, our breakout bestseller, Protect & Detangle, does exactly that: It moisturizes, defrizzes, safeguards color, boosts shine, and protects against heat and UV damage.

How to Use

Lather up with Protect & Shampoo, then follow with a generous dose of Protect & Condition. Finally, spritz the Protect & Detangle spray onto towel-dried hair. Comb through to distribute evenly and style as usual.

I never thought I would be willing to spend so much on shampoo

In fact, shampoo and conditioner had damaged my hair and scalp so much that I stopped using it. I didn't even substitute it with anything... just used water which was surprisingly not horrible. at least my scalp didn't itch constantly and my hair actually looked good from time to time. I even backslid once and that was horrible, instantly felt dry and damaged and itchy. Plus poofy and not a "my hair has body" poof but the I brushed dry curly hair poof... and my hair is straight!! but then I got this sample, actually I got them separately the detangler actually came first and I only used it once or twice just to make my hair smell good. when I got the shampoo and conditioner and they smelled so good I thought well... it doesn't actually have a lot of the stuff in regular shampoo. It smells amazing... Ha VEGAN shampoo!! Wait there is non vegan shampoo? What are people putting on their heads? Maybe my problem is with cheap shampoo? ok Ill try it. The second thing I noticed (after the scent) is the sheer thickness of the shampoo. it felt more like conditioner. (I triple checked the bottle) When I started using it even it felt more like conditioner. Then it did sud up, just not a lot after I checked the bottle for the third time. When I rinsed it out I noticed a couple other things, for one my hair felt soft. now normally after shampoo my still wet hair feels so dry its like it is sucking the moisture out of my fingers. It did not feel that way. Also my hair did not feel waxy like it does even clean, when wet, without using any shampoo. just soft and nice. I rinsed extra good because shampoo tends to trick me and make my hair feel lovely until it is rinsed, I didn't believe it gone. onto the conditioner.... interlude I have hair that currently hits about 2 inches past my shoulders.. I used 2 quarter sized portions of each product... I rubbed the conditioner into my hair and made sure to coat it well, then I rinsed it out. I didn't even let it set and wow it came out so clean and easy it was unbelievable.. the shampoo too actually. I got out, towel dried and brushed my hair and since then (yesterday morning) my hair has been so soft, and shiny and good smelling and beautiful that I am on here contemplating dropping more than I can fathom on a shampoo and conditioner set. I even used the leave in this morning just to boost the scent and correct some kinks from throwing h=my hair in a pony tail and falling asleep. I love this though.

cond spray only

This shampoo doesnt lather, and the conditioner doesnt condition as well as the spray. Bummed I bought the whole trio and wished i would have just stuck to the conditioning spray (which I already knew I loved)

Amazing product!

The shampoo is phenomenal, doesn't strip my hair, or get to foamy. The conditioner is light but leaves your hair feeling solid. I am growing my hair out from bleaching and coloring if for a year, the bleached ends feel stronger and there are way fewer frizzy, flyaway broken pieces. My hair loves this product. I will say though, that if you use the conditioner, use the detangler sparingly, both at once can get a bit heavy.

I am in love!

I cannot say enough good things about Beauty Protector or the wonders it has done for my hair. II'm definitely converted. My super thick Indian hair is now soft and manageable. The sulfate free formula doesn't fade my hair color. And the scent of the shampoo and conditioner is divine!! The only part I hate is that it doesn't lather much, but then again, most sulfate free shampoos don't.

Keep Washin' The smell is amazing.

I recently bought this with my points(gotta love FREE) and I sampled the detangler months ago. the smell is very unique and I knew I had to have it. the shampoo and conditioner work amazingly. I just started shampooing half my head and conditioning the length so I'm excited to see results already. I highly recommend this for girls with long straight hair. it makes my hair supple and beautiful that you want to run your fingers thru it all day ! love this trio.

I absolutely can not say enough about this trio!!! The smell is amazing. For the first time my curls are not a frizzy mess when they dry. It's super moisturizing without being oily.

So disappointed

I bought the trio after getting a sample of the detangler spray-which I LOVED! The shampoo does not lather. At all. Nothing. I'm not even sure it is getting my hair clean because I can barely get my fingers through my hair when I use the shampoo. I agree with other reviewers-I want to throw it away but feel too guilty because it was so expensive.

Favorite Birchbox Product!

This product is fantastic...I love the three in one. I first received the leave in conditioner and loved it so I tried the shampoo and conditioner. I have fine hair that never could grow past my shoulders, now my hair is so much longer! LOVE IT!

Love Protect and Detangle

I love the protect and Detangle more than words can say and I will not be without it. However, I wasn't impressed with the shampoo or conditioner. I thought the shampoo was too harsh and conditioner too light. My hair requires mega moisture though. The scent of all the products in this line cannot be beat though!
