To keep your shade spot-on as long as possible, pair with Nexxus Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Conditioner.

Nexxus®

Birchbox Breakdown

We thought picking the perfect hair color would be the hard part——but whether we go blonde, brunette, red, or ombre, we’'ve found that keeping our strands the shade we selected is even tougher. Thankfully, this shampoo locks in color vibrancy to prevent our carefully chosen hue from fading, letting us go longer between touchups. It's made with oil to protect our strands (and hue), and formulated without color-dulling sulfates. What'’s more, it provides the extra attention——aka moisture and nourishment——that treated strands desperately need, thanks to white orchid extract, argan oil, and almond oil.

How to Use

This shade-safeguarding formula is infused with oil, protect strands as you wash and rinse hair, and made without any color-dulling sulfates. White orchid extract and almond oil moisturize and nourish hair, plus help prevent breakage. Coconut oil gives hair bounce and improves texture, while argan oil boosts shine.

Greasy

This made my hair greasy and heavy and I have very dry hair. I got this as a sample in my May box, I would never buy this.

Just OK

This shampoo did not work well for my hair.
It is color treated and all but left it very dry.
Not on my shopping list...

Nice but not for me
Sampled

I liked the pre-shampoo, shampoo, and conditioner but the 3 step process is a little too much for my laziness.

Smells good, cleaned hair
Sampled

I have dyed my hair for 10 plus years, and it unfortunately takes longer use than what a sample can provide to really get a sense of "vibrancy retention" but that very phrase makes me roll my eyes. So, as just a shampoo, I can say it lathered well, and smelled great. My hair felt clean after!

Good conditioner
Sampled

Made my hair soft and luscious but I only got two uses out of the very small sample so I don't know it helped with color retention.

No great shakes
Sampled

This product was fine, but didn't do anything special for my hair. Certainly not something I'd pay more for. And if it requires a primer to work...that's just one more step for me to deal with in the morning.

Disappointing
Sampled

Was super excited to see this in my box. I had just had my hair recolored. I hated the way this felt on my hair. It didn't really seem to actually clean my hair.
