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.

This shampoo smelled very nice, but it didn't lather well, which I really didn't like. My hair looked fine afterwards, but I didn't think it was anything special.

Great shampoo
Sampled

I already use the leave-in conditioner from this line so I was ecstatic to see a shampoo and conditioner in my Birchbox this month. It smells great and gets my hair squeaky clean. Love it!

Just Okay

I liked the product, but I didn't think it was worth the money. I didn't see a difference compared to my normal shampoo.

Works great the first day
Sampled

I have 2c/3a type curly hair, which frizzes easily and can get very dry. My hair also can very easily get limp and flat at the roots, which makes for a very unappealing look and hard-to-style hair. For the first day that I used this shampoo and conditioner, I was beyond thrilled. My hair was soft, smooth, shiny and my curls were nicely defined. My hair felt very clean, and looked like it had been professionally styled. However, after the second day of using this line, my hair was limp, prone to fly-aways, greasy soft and my curls had almost no definition. I was really disappointed! I would like to have a full-size bottle of the shampoo and conditioner to use sparingly--a few times a month, or on special occasions, because it seems that it just overloaded my hair after using it multiple showers in a row. However, the price of $20 per bottle is way too expensive for that to be practical. The shampoo also did not lather very well at all in my hair, and I noticed I had to use a lot of it to get it evenly distributed throughout my hair. The smell was delicious, though!

Strange Feel but Awesome!

When I used this for the first time, I thought it was really weird. There was no lather, and it was hard to pull it all the way through my hair (it's thick & long). However, when I brushed my hair out I realized my scalp was super clean! No residue, no buildup. Plus it smells amazing.

Garden Variety Shampoo

I have thin hair that is on the oilier side of the spectrum, and from other reviews I've read this shampoo seems to work a lot better for normal to dry hair. That being said, I wasn't thrilled with this product. I didn't notice much of a change after shampooing with it, and though the scent was nice, it didn't last once my hair dried.

Amazing shampoo

I am simply in love with this new shampoo that I discovered thanks to birch box. It is wonderful, leaves my hair super silky and smooth. I adore the smell -- it stays on for hours, mild but sweet.

Obsessed! A dream for thick, wavy hair
Purchased

This shampoo is the most amazing product ever. I have long, thick, wavy hair and it's nearly impossible to find a shampoo that allows my waves to develop without leaving my hair a frizzy mess. I can let my hair air-dry and not worry about it at all. I would not recommend this product for those with thin hair, as it is extremely moisturizing.

Awesome Clean

I am very pleased with this shampoo! Smells great and cleaned my hair without it feeling stripped or coated. Awesome shampoo & conditioner both :)

Great shampoo

Although I wasn't a big fan of their detangler which left my hair feeling slightly greasy, the shampoo made my hair feel amazing. It is definitely worth a try and I love that it's sulfate free. The soft vanilla-y scent is definitely an added bonus! I'm definitely going to buy in the regular size!
