Nexxus® Color Assure™ Pre-Wash Primer

After we color our hair, we worry about washing our new hue into oblivion. To avoid that brassy, faded, too-long-since-the-salon look, we can now prep our strands before we shampoo with this lightweight pre-wash primer. The oil-based formula seals the hair shaft, so water can’'t penetrate into strands and fade color. A few pumps of the sulfate-free treatment will leave you protected—while nourishing strands to prevent breakage.

Meh.......

I like to swap out my shampoo/conditioner every so often. This was my first time using a primer before shampooing. I like the nexus brand. I couldn't tell if this did anything to protect or extend the life of my highlights. I this may be a product that I need to use more often to get the benefit from.

not very good

the primer was ok. very oily but ok. the shampoo smells great but did not get sudsy and make my hair feel dry and stiff. conditioner smells great but it did not feel like it conditioned my hair and my hair was more tangly than ever, even cheap conditioners worked better

As others have stated, made my hair greasy. I have fine oily hair as it is and this was not a good match for me.

Made my hair feel greasy. I don't wash my hair everyday so it's not for me

Don't get it

I didn't get it. Made my hair oily and greasy then I washed it out. Didn't notice a difference in my hair afterwards good or bad.

A trick to make you think the shampoo works great?
Sampled

All this did was make my shampoo work harder. Putting something on your hair directly before washing it...you guessed it, just disappears. Smells good though!

What's the point?
Sampled

I gave the Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer a try, but didn't notice anything as a result of using it. Does shampoo really need a primer? Nexxus may have taken things too far with this one.

Warning: this product does not work well at all for thick, course hair and I find it completely unnecessary to put this on before shampooing.

Didn't really care for this. Feel like it made my hair like straw.

Made my hair dry
Sampled

This is a strange product. I was on board with the idea and excited to try it, as I dye my hair fairly regularly. It made my hair feel greasy AND like straw, simultaneously. How is that even possible? I don't know, but that's what it did. it also made my shower floor very slippery, too, so be careful out there!
