Best Uses

  • Use after Kerastraight treatment

Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Color Care Shampoo:

I was advised to buy this after I had the kerastraight treatment because it had no sodium sulfate and I do like it . Made my hair very soft but that's about it . There are a lot of sulfate free shampoos all there that are probably just as good and a lot cheaper

I got my hair treated with the keratin oil, so I decided to purchase this shampoo and conditioner to further the hair process. It smells like really bad curry. I don't think I'll be buying this again.

          My stylist has been using this shampoo for a really long time. I wanted to get the same shampoo so that when I am in between appointments and need to wash my hair I could use it. It helps keep the frizz and static of my hair to a minimal and makes my hair soft and shiny.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Color Care Shampoo:

              This shampoo is advertised as "free of sulfates" but it's not true. I checked the ingredients and it includes Sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, this is a "sulfate" and/or an "anionic surfactant". Anionic surfactants are harsh and extremely drying. DO NOT USE! For the sake of your hair's health don't buy this.

                    Comments about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin Color Care Shampoo:

                    The only thing keeping me from giving Keratin Complex a 5-star rating is the smell. It isn't bad, but it isn't good, either. It almost smells like carrots.

                    Smell aside, the product does exactly what I was expecting - it is protecting and improving the texture of my color-treated hair. I've also noticed that my hair looks just as good if I miss one day of washing as it does if if wash daily. That's new for me, and I attribute it back to Keratin Complex.
