Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo

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 i’s 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.

Worked as well as my normal shampoo, but it took almost the whole sample bottle to get a good enough lather for my thick hair. I wouldn't recommend it, even for people with very thin hair.

Fabulous scent!

I love the way this product smells! It made my hair feel super soft too without feeling weighed down. Love it!

Not for me
Sampled

I found to be very indifferent about this product. I highly enjoyed the scent. It completely took over into the sample box. However, I have naturally curly hair and when I tried it, I felt that it did not add anything to the texture of my hair as compared with other products. I am sure it went over well with other hair types, but not for mine.

Like, but not love
Sampled

I think this is definitely a good hair product. However, for the price, I think they are way better options out there. I like that it's sulfate-free, but it didn't get enough lather for me to feel like my hair was clean. I know some people will love the vanilla scent, but I wasn't crazy about the smell. Overall, it is a decent product, it gives you nice shine, but I not enough to make me change from the shampoo I currently use.

I can't get past the scent!
Sampled

And it's not a terrible scent at all -- somewhere between baby powder and cotton candy. It's totally a personal preference thing, and one of my best friends LOVES the scent and the brand's other products like it.

The other thing is that my hair is super-fine. I can only use sulfate-free shampoos, but they never seem to leave my hair with body, save for two other brands I know. So that's why I'm sticking to my other brands.

Love it!!
Sampled

I received this shampoo as a sample in my very first Birch box and was super excited to see a Gluten Free, non-chemical, shampoo. I have been searching all over for a shampoo just like this and there it was! Then, after smelling the scent... I was almost sold. It is an awesome, light scent that awakens the spirit and makes me look forward to starting the day. I was completely sold after its use. My hair has never been so clean, so shiny, and smelling amazing. Love this!

Smells great
Sampled

The shampoo smells great, but other than that, I would not choose this product over drugstore shampoo. It was difficult to get the amount of lather I like, so I had to use a lot of product at once (probably more than necessary).

My new favorite

This stuff is great, it lathered better than anything else I've tried and left my hair soft and shiny. The smell is also to die for :)

Smelly

I love what this does for my hair, but hate the scent. It's a very perfumey vanilla scent. Sort of like warm brown sugar from bath and body works.
