      Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

      I did not experience the drying effect that others have described when using this shampoo (and conditioner). It made my hair feel great and in only a few uses it had completely transformed my brassy highlights.Did everything I hoped it would!

        Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

        I have gray hair that I color religiously. Unfortunately, it leaves my hair looking very brassy. I have tried everything to make my hair less brassy with no results. This shampoo does the trick. I use it 1 or 2 times a week. The trick is leaving it on your hair for several minutes before rinsing out. It does make your hair feel REALLY dry after you rinse it. I use a really good conditioner after washing and let it sit on my hair 3 to 5 minutes and wala - great non brassy hair!!

            Shampoo the areas that you like to see changed, and use any other conditionerror afterwards. You will need a good conditioner, I felt my hair was extra tangled

                Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

                Don't buy it. I have been trying to figure out why the texture in my hair has changed and I went back and read the reviews in more depth because a friend actually recommended this to me. My hair was once curly and had great texture. Now it is completely flat, stripped, and is breaking. I do use heat on my hair to style, but in all my life I have not had damaged hair like this.

                  Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

                  After reading reviews about this shampoo being very drying to hair, I decided to mix some of this with my normal shampoo. It still dried my hair out some but I normally have oily hair so it's not a huge con for me. Mixing it with my normal shampoo also helped with the fact that it doesn't lather very well. I do think this product helped with my brassy orange tones though after only one use! I would highly recommend using a deep conditioner after using this product.

                  Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

                  I bought a box of golden blonde highlights for my hair and my dirty blonde hair turned orange. A hairdresser suggested this shampoo. It lathered great, but didn't diminish any of the orange and left my hair coarse and unmanageable. I'm not impressed.
