    Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Care Shampoo:

    I have seen some negative comments about this product from people. It seems there are people who do not have Keratin-treated hair that buy this shampoo with the expectation that it will "straighten" their hair. That's not what this is. This is for people who have Keratin-treated hair, which needs a shampoo that is sodium-chloride-free (in addition to paraben- and sulfate-free). For Keratin-treated hair, it is the bomb.

      I bought this product after my third keratin express treatment (together with the shampoo) and it really helped prolong it by a few weeks! So far, this has been my go to shampoo and conditioner and I've tried a bunch of other combos over the year.

            Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Care Shampoo:

            Let me start by saying that I love this shampoo. I had a Brazilian blowout (several treatments) and my stylist recommended a specific shampoo. Unfortunately, I ran out of that and needed a shampoo quick. So, I went to Ulta and asked for them to recommend a sulfate free shampoo. My stylist said that is the most important thing to avoid (sulfate) after a Brazilian blowout. The stylist at Ulta recommended this shampoo. I actually like it better than the one my stylist recommended. What I have to say next is that I'm confused about the ingredients labeled here on the website. The ingredients are not the same as those that are listed on the actual bottle that I have. The ingredients listed here with this product would indicate that there is sulfate. However, this shampoo DOES NOT have sulfate. So, I'm confused. If you take a look on the website you will see a larger bottle of this same shampoo. If you click on that and go to 'ingredients' you will see the same ingredients as what is in this shampoo. Bottom line, the ingredients listed here for this are incorrect so look at the larger version of this shampoo (the one with the pump) and you will see the same ingredients as what is in this shampoo.

            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.

                This is the daily shampoo my stylist suggested. It gently cleans, and makes my hair shiny, and full of body all day long, even in the heat and humidity. My hair is thin, fine, and straight.

                    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.

                      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.
