          I haven't used it long enough to comment on long term improvements that I'm hoping this product will deliver such as eliminating breakage, split ends etc.. however after my first use my hair is already more manageable, looks healthy, soft and smooth feeling, great smell. I'm combining this with the conditioner, Sebastian potion 9 stilling cream and Sebastian trilliance hair thermal protector.

              Wow!!!!! I am thrilled with this product! I have been using Redken for about 2 years and thought I loved their hair products, but no! There is really just NO comparison. This shampoo is just amazing. I purchased both the Penetraitt shampoo and conditioner and have seen definite improvement and I've only been using it a brief time. My hair is SO much softer!!!! I have colored my hair professionally, but it's mostly grown out so I'm trying to get my hair back to it's old healthy shine and this is helping me immensely! I'm so happy, I will not switch from this product!!!!

                          I began with Sebastian hair sprays then mousse and not to mention Potion 9 which are fabulous products. After a while I decided to try the shampoo and conditioners only to decide to stay with them forever. Shampoo and conditioner gave my hair life again and it also smells great. Mom's hair was like hay due to all the dye and treatment she gets and this was the best recommendation I gave her. She also loved it.

                          • 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 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.'"
