      Comments about Paul Mitchell Color Care Color Protect Shampoo:

      This made my hair look greasy at the roots, felt like syrup was in it, hair was super snappy and I could make a wig with all the hair that came out in the wash and while combing & styling. I still can't believe it happened from a Paul Mitchell product but I'm returning it and the moisture line I bought because I'm too scared to try it.

      Comments about Paul Mitchell Color Care Color Protect Shampoo:

      This is a great shampoo IF you use it correctly. If you use too much, it will leave your hair feeling unclean and weighed down. You only need a quarter size amount, worked into your roots and hair. It won't lather and be sudsy like drugstore shampoo. It feels like you're not doing enough, but trust me it is getting your hair clean! This shampoo doesn't fade my color and leaves my hair light and easy to manage. Same thing with the conditioner, only a small amount to the ends only. Do it right and this shampoo is great for color treated hair!

            Im not sure what happened with this shampoo, I've bought it in the past and loved it. I recently couldn't wait to buy it again when they had the jumbo shampoo sale. But now it leaves my hair VERY greasy and hard to manage. I kept giving it multiple chances but after using my husbands drug store brand shampoo and seeing how much better my hair felt after wards I knew it was the shampoo and not just in my head! Very disappointed and glad to see I'm not the only one who gets greasy hair afterwards. I only wish I could get my money back!!

                  Awful, awful product. My hair is so stiff and greasy feeling. My hair has never been frizzy before, but as soon as I used this product it frizzed right up and tangled in knots. I have a photo attached to this review it shows how stiff my hair looks. No other products are in my hair.

                    I've been professionally coloring for 30 years. This is by far the best shampoo I've found for color treated hair. And I've tried shampoos at TWICE the price. It cleans thoroughly yet gently and give nice body. Some color shampoos are so weak they leave an itchy film. Not so Paul Mitchell. Love it
