Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo - 8 oz.

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 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.

very pleased
Sampled

I'm very happy with this sample. I only use sulfate free shampoos, and was happy to get a sample that was both sulfate free and free of wheat protein. It is a thick consistency, and consequently I have to use a good amount to get it disbursed through my thick hair, but it cleanses well and smells nice. More importantly it doesn't make my oily roots go flat and greasy. The only downside is that it didn't do as good a job of moisturizing my hair as my current shampoo. However, I plan to try it with a different conditioner to see if that helps.

Not for me
Sampled

I felt this sample was very drying to my hair; almost as if I was washing chalk through my roots. It left my hair smelling great, but I didn't notice any difference between this product and my regular shampoo regarding the way my hair looked.

Hair feels very clean!
Sampled

After using this product my hair felt squeaky clean. Scent is mild and didn't irritate my sensitive scalp.

Nice smell
Sampled

Is smells awesome. As far as benefits though, I didn't find it all that great, especially for the price. I have thick, coarse hair though. So not much can help it. Maybe for a lower price I would consider it.

Indifferent

It was a nice change to use a different shampoo, though, I would not spend so much on shampoo.

Nice but not for me
Sampled

This shampoo smelled really nice but the quality of lather really threw me off. I used most of my sample up after one use because I didn't think it was being effective.

Poor Lather
Sampled

I liked the smell of the product and thats about it. It was really hard to lather and I used about 2 times the shampoo that I normally use. I wasn't super impressed. I will not be purchasing this product at all. I am more than satisfied with my current salon professional product.
