You fell head-over-heels in love with Beauty Protector’s Protect & Detangle styling spray when we first sampled it. Thanks to your rave reviews, Beauty Protector went ahead and developed this Protect & Shampoo for an exclusive launch with Birchbox. The sulfate-free formula is powered by pearl powder, which is rich in conchiolin, an ingredient that acts like the hair protein keratin. This fortifying ingredient teams up with other nutrients that guard against and heal the effects of heat styling (think frizz and destroyed ends). The result is glossy, bouncy strands that, yes, also smell amazing.
Its always hard to give a review just on shampoo since I always use conditioner following it... but I think this products smell is lovely but it was hard for me to work a even lather throughout my hair unless I added more product. I've used sulfate free shampoo before and know the difference in how it feels but usually when I add water while trying to lather it fixes the problem but in this case it did not.3
I usually use volumizing shampoo, but this shine-and-softness enhancer was great! I may have lots a little bounce, but my hair feels so wonderful! And the smell--omg SO GOOOOD!4
I received this product with the conditioner in my BB for Oct. I have used a sulfate free once a week hair deep conditioner for about 6 months, so I was familiar with the feel of a product that has no sulfates. For those who don't know, sulfates=lather and bubbles. Without it there is not of this. That leads me to my review:
First the smells a vague vanilla smell. I was actually not turned off by it but it's not my favorite.
Then there is the lather. It doesn't later. It's like putting a non-stick glue on your head if that makes sense. This stuff was so hard to get into my hair and make it feel 'clean". I used 1/2 my sample bottle on my hair just to make sure it felt like it was working. It just kind of coats an area and doesn't feel like what you are used to. It actually made my hair extra tangled and needed the conditioner right away. My hair felt like it had chlorine from the pool dried in it after I used. I hated that. I will review the conditioner also, and that was excellent. My hair is just as it is every day with my Redken I use, so the product obviously worked. It just was not easy to use and that is a turn off. If you don't already use a high end product maybe give it a try, but I am indifferent. As I said my hair was just normal after using so no added shine or sleekness afterwords as I expected maybe there would be. Not use if it's effective...
I was not a fan of this shampoo. It was hard to lather in my hair and I felt like it didn't get my hair as clean as my usual shampoo does.1
I've never understood why I should pay $20+ for a shampoo but I do understand it's sulfate free. The bottle should be larger for that price. The shampoo lacked a good lather but had a great scent3
This products smells AMAZING, and it made my hair feel shiny and soft . However, my hair tends to get greasy easily and for that reason I use shampoos made for my kind of hair. I wish I could use this shampoo and not have a problem but thats not the case :(4
The shampoo is just alright. I like a good lather and this just didn't do it for me. As a pair (shampoo and conditioner) they were pretty good.3
I may ben banned from Birchbox for saying this, but I've always been a drug store shampoo girl. I've never come across from anything worth spending 4-5xs more on. This *might* be it. I was amazed but how thick the shampoo was, and how little I needed to use.4
This scent of this product is AAAHHH-Mazing!! It works great too!!! The shampoo felt a little drying, but as soon as I applied the conditioner it was perfect!!!5
Love the musky scent of this shampoo! I also like that I don't need a lot to get a good lather going. This line is such a great find, thanks to Birchbox!4
