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.

I used this in conjunction with the shampoo and conditioner, but when you color your hair, it usually doesn't fade after a single wash. that was all that the sample was for. So I couldn't really tell if it worked.

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

New concept for me!

I had never heard of a pre-wash primer before! It makes sense, though! I always wondered how to keep shampoo from stripping my color, and now I know! But this worked nicely, and I liked the smell a lot.

Great for freshly colored hair - helps to protect the brassy effect of color treatments. Quick use before you shower, and smells great!

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.

This is a neat idea, but I do not think that I would actually end up using the product if I purchased it.

I didnt feel like this primer did much. The shampoo and conditioner that go along with this made my hair feel really dry.

It works!

I felt that it worked for the few shampoos I had the sample for after I dyed my hair recently. Good product!

My hair felt greasy & flat for two washes post application. I was concerned that I applied the product incorrectly, but after seeing other reviews am glad to see it wasn't just me. Plus side? It smells pretty good.

I don't like how greasy it makes my hair feel. Even after showering, my hair still feels unclean.
