Nick Chavez® Beverly Hills Color-Saver Sulfate-Free Shampoo

Traditional shampoos rely on sulfates to create a thick lather, but the flip side is that they can be incredibly harsh and drying especially on color-treated hair that needs the moisture most. This ultra-gentle shampoo is formulated without sulfates to ensure that it removes buildup without stripping color. After all, highlights can cost a pretty penny—we want to make them last!

Does not perform as described

I got a sample of this in my box a few months ago. I would not recommend this product to anyone with dry hair. My hair is dyed but it is also naturally curly. After using gentle products meant for curly hair for several weeks, this was very drying, it smells a bit like chemicals - furniture polish? and the color on my hair looks no better (and no worse, honestly) than it did before. I color my hair red and it looked like a lot of it bled out during the rinse. Also, this stuff lathered like CRAZY on me - I thought it was no lather? It may work fine on those of you who lighten your hair. I have a feeling this would also work well as a clarifying shampoo if you're into that kind of thing, or if you use a lot of product.

I followed up with the recommended conditioner, which seemed really thin and slippery. After I towel-dryed my hair, I applied some leave-in conditioner to get it hydrated again. Honestly, I haven't felt this turns off by a shampoo since being forced to use White Rain at my mom's house when I forgot my own.

Love this shampoo!

I have long hair that gets tortured almost daily with a hair dryer and a straightener but this shampoo totally transforms it to soft, beautiful, silky hair. My new favorite.

Not a fan

I didn't like that I couldn't get a lather, I suppose it's due to the lack of sulfates? The smell was okay, but my hair just felt dull and unclean after using.

Too heavy

This shampoo did not work for me. It left my hair feeling really thick and heavy like it needed to be rewashed. Not for me.

Sulfate Free

I liked this shampoo, and I am all about anything that saves my color... however, I love a good lather! This will be perfect to travel with, as it's a perfect size for that!

pleasant aroma. medium lather - didn't feel like it was all wasted down the drain. Hair retained recent color treatment longer. sulfate free's hard to find. Thanks Birchbox!

Gentle Color Care Shampoo

Lovely smell, nice lather and gentle on color treated hair. The little sample size was ample and lasted a pretty good amount of time. I would buy this again.

worked fine

I thought this shampoo was fine. I liked getting the travel-size so I could trying something new. The sulfate-free was nice but I am always unsure if I have used enough without the lather. I didn't really notice much of a difference than my regular shampoo. I'd use it again if it was a gift, but I probably wouldn't purchase it on my own.
