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.

Nice but not for me
Sampled

I liked the pre-shampoo, shampoo, and conditioner but the 3 step process is a little too much for my laziness.

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.

I am not sure why you would use this, but it did smell pretty good.

Ok

I wasn't really impressed, didn't understand what the point of this was.

Not good
Sampled

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.

Results: stringy hair
Sampled

It made my hair oily and stringy; it also didn't work well at all for thick hair.

Not for thick hair
Sampled

I felt like this did not equally penetrate my thick locks. I got two uses out of my trial size and it wasn't enough for me to ever want to try it in the full size. I am a hair snob no doubt, but I just don't have anything good to say about this product line.

Nah

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

I did not find this product very good at cleaning nourishing and replenishing.
