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.

Disappointed

I expected more from a brand like Nexxus. Left my hair feeling dry and brittle.

Nexxus color primer

This was a really good product for someone who colors their hair. It made it feel really good and my color looked good and seemed to last a little longer.

This sample made my hair kind of feeling stringy. I possibly could have used to much and not rinsed it all out. I use another brand, so I won't be purchasing

Works great!

This primer really helps me hold my color longer! I am a little amazed at the difference it makes when I use it. The only downside is that I feel like I use more shampoo because it takes a bit more to get my hair to feel clean after using the primer. Still, I'm sold!

super sticky
Sampled

I didn't like this product. It was super sticky and made my hair feel super oily. It was very watery so I was surprised by just how sticky and goopy it was.

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.

I used this wrong but I still like it
Sampled

I did not use this product as directed. It is supposed to be some sort of "primer" for shampoo. I used it after shampooing on damp hair and combed it through. I felt like after blow drying my color was really vibrant. I used in conjunction with the shampoo and conditioner so I am not sure which product if any one was specifically responsible, but I loved the results.

Great product but not for me

I loved the concept of this product but since my hair is already oily to begin with it did more harm than good
