This shampoo is fine but it's hard to tell if it is good at preserving color with such a small sample. I did not like the smell either.
It's pretty standard shampoo and conditioner didn't do anything overly special.
I really did not care for the scent of this and it took 2 washes to get my hair clean. For some i guess that means it's mild but to me its just time consuming and tedious. Performance was just ok. I won't be purchasing.
Madison Reed Nourishing Color-Enhancing Shampoo
Leaves hair soft, shiny and healthy. Doesn’t make color fade or look drab.
I would have rated it zero
Maybe, maybe, this product will be good for people with very thick coarser hair. It might make it more manageable. My hair is fine and soft naturally , after I used this product, I felt bold! Hair felt like baby hair. I immediately rewarded it with regular shampoo and threw out the samples.
