    I have dry, wavy color treated hair.
    Cleans beautifully and gently. I'm using it with the conditioner and gotten many compliments since I've started using them.
    Expensive, but a bargain during the liter sale!

      I use this product daily and I am so blown away by how much my hair has improved. I had extremely dry dull hair and I'm so glad I purchased this set. It's worth the price for sure and if you can get it when it's on sale at ulta I definitely would recommend picking this up. I have stocked up to make sure I donget run out. I have noticed my hair is way more manageable and I am losing less hair. My hair is also super shiny and super soft I love it

        I frequently dye my hair red, so my hair was very dry and frizzy. I am always on the hunt for the "perfect shampoo and conditioner" but I had come to terms with the fact that it probably didn't exist. I saw the reviews on this shampoo and gave it a try and it did not disappoint. My new favorite.

            I rarely ever review a product but the moment I tried this shampoo and conditioner I KNEW I had to let everyone know how amazing it was! After the first use I saw drastic changes in my hair! It was no longer dried out and it was so much easier to comb out my hair afterwards! It was my first time trying out this line and now that I have I won't go back to any other! Seriously just what my hair needed! If you're thinking of trying them out I totally would recommend it!

                            Both products address moisture issues, however, Sebastian Penetrate contains protein which will take care of weak tresses by strengthening the hair shaft with protein and moisture. If your hair is extremely thirsty and not lacking any strength issues, I would use Sebastian Drench, this product addresses thirsty hair with only moisturizing emollients.

                        • Q:

                          I have very long , dry, color treated hair and a dry scalp. My hair is about 85% gray and that has changed the texture somewhat and I also have thyroid disease that causes dry hair and scalp and also causes my hair to shed very badly when I wash & condition it! I try to keep it nourished and healthy by brushing it often and using argon oil on the ends and it helps so much. Which of the two shampoo/conditioner systems would you recommend for me? The "Drench" or the "Penetrait"? Any help would be so appreciated!

                            We suggest the Drench Shampoo, which is a shampoo that is specifically targeted to treat thirsty hair. Penetraitt is specifically formulated with protein and moisture, which is better for those with limp hair. The protein causes the hair to swell which can cause a bit too much for those who have overly thirsty hair.

                            Sebastian states that this shampoo is color-safe; however, if you have concerns, it's always a great idea to review the full ingredients list within the description with your stylist or colorist.

                            "We do not intentionally add Gluten to our cosmetic products.

                            "Cosmetic products can feature a variety of ingredients extracted from grains. As Gluten too is a grain derived ingredient, it cannot be excluded that trace amounts of Gluten may come along with common raw material supplies.

                            "It is generally believed that Gluten needs to be ingested to produce sensitivity and therefore use of hair and skin products is not likely to trigger a reaction. However, the degree of sensitivity varies from person to person; we highly recommend that you consult with your physician before using any products.

                            "We also refer you to online websites such as celiac.com or celiac.org for further information. One of the questions asked on the website celiac.com is 'Can products which contain gluten but only touch the skin affect celiacs?' and the response is 'Very few celiacs are likely to have any reaction to topical gluten contact. In order for a gut reaction to occur, it is likely that direct contact with the gut lumen is required. Many people with celiac disease have everyday contact with gluten (for instance, bakers with CD who have contact everyday with wheat flour), and do not have any reaction to it. However, there are, on rare occasion, people who have had an anaphylactoid response to gluten, and these people should avoid gluten in all forms. Also, topical gluten breathed into the upper airways may cause symptoms of allergic rhinitis in rare instances. If there is a simple alternative to a shampoo, cosmetic, etc., you may want to use the non gluten containing product.'"
