Hey guys! This review is a long time coming because I had actually received these in the mail back in October, after I had gotten out of the hospital. I know, that's a long time, but I was trying to recover from being in the hospital, and I have so many different shampoos and conditioners in my stash that it took me a while to be able to try these! Anyways, Proganix sent me a very nice package of their Anti-Fade Shampoo and Conditioner, along with a few other products and hair goodies.
According to Proganix, they're shampoo and conditioner are said to be:
A color protecting blend with antioxidant rich cherry blossom extract,
and UV filters, perfected in the salon, it helps reds to stay vibrant,
blondes to shimmer, and brunettes to stay brilliant, giving you hair
that you'll always love.
I ended up coloring my hair around the first week of November, and it ended up being this really pretty deep burgundy/purple shade. I figured that this duo would be a great test to see if it lived up to the claims.
I first noticed the nice cherry blossom scent. I typically am not a huge fan of cherry blossom, but the scent in both the shampoo and conditioner are light enough to not bother me. For the shampoo claiming to be sulfate-free, it lathers nicely. I feel like it cleans my hair well without drying it out. The conditioner is amazing for my fine, tangly hair! It spreads out evenly and once rinsed out, it makes my hair feel so soft and tangle free without feeling greasy.
I do feel like the Anti-Fade Shampoo and Conditioner helped to keep the color my hair was looking nice. To an extent, of course. Now that it's almost February, my hair is faded, but you can still tell that it's color treated. I think these are nice, but at a price tag of around $10 each depending on where you buy them, I'd say skip them. I'm honestly not terribly picky about the color in my hair fading though.
What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair?
