Not Sulfate free!

  • Lathers Well

Cons

  • Ineffective

Best Uses

  • Daily Use

Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Care Shampoo:

You would think since this shampoo is in a product line for people who get keratin straightening treatments that it would be sulfate free like their other shampoos, but its not. It's sodium chloride free but still has the sulfate, which is worse for keratin treatments then the chloride. This will make your keratin treatment come out of your hair in weeks, instead of months.

          Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Care Shampoo:

          This shampoo is by far the worst shampoo I have ever tried. The bottle size/product is definitely not worth the cost. Keratin complex has other products that I swear by but this stuff let me down so hard. I thought it would make my hair silky and shiny like other products in this line do however it actually dried my hair out like crazy and made it pretty unmanageable.

            Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Care Shampoo:

            After a keratin treatment @Ulta Salon, my hairdresser recommended this shampoo with the matching conditioner. At first I was worry because it has sulfates. But , it has been gentle enough for my keratin and color treated hair. As the label states , it thoroughly cleanses without stripping the hair keratin and moisture. Glad to say it works for me. I'm very pleased with this shampoo. My hair feels nourish.

            My hair has been straightened with Brazilian Blow Out and requires a sulfate free shampoo. This product is less expensive than what the salons sell and does offer an alternative.

                  I started using this after a keratin treatment and I'm very surprised at how well it lathers. I've used "It's A 10" before and prefer this one.
