      Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

      I absolutely love this stuff! Yes it doesn't lather well, but most shampoos with no sulfates do not lather well. I had been using a salon keratin shampoo (also sulfate and paraben free) that my stylist reccomended and it was nothing in comparison to Ulta's smooth and protect shampoo. I always stock up because it is seriously some of the best shampoo I have ever used. I wash my hair every other day and this does not dry it out, it leaves it silky smooth and it smells amazing!

      Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

      I have curly hair with a really oily scalp, and this still works for me, but YOU HAVE TO LET IT SIT FOR A BIT so it has time to work! Yes it doesn't lather much (which you should expect from sulfate free shampoos) and because of that you tend to use a little more than you normally would. It does however clean my hair without over-drying it, which really gives my curls life, and especially with the keratin decreases their frizz! It also smells amazing- vaguely coconut/vanilla with a hint of floral (similar to the loreal sulfate free moisture line with the blue bottles but less chemical).I kept getting whiffs of it through the day too. I would honestly buy it just for the smell, but it works great too.

      I used to dislike sulfate-free shampoos because they don't lather and I felt that they didn't get my oily hair clean enough to not look greasy halfway through the day, but you'll find if you just massage it in and give it a minute or two before rinsing (instead of lather and immediate rinse) you'll get the gentle but actually clean effect you were hoping for!

                      if using expensive "WEN" shampoo has taught me anything, its that you absolutely do NOT need ridiculous amounts of lather to clean well! It lathers the right amount. It isn't hard to rinse out, cleans well, left my hair feeling better than the expensive products.

                        Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

                        Not worth it. My friend recommended it to me but it did nothing for my oily thick hair. It has a nice smell and makes my hair soft but doesn't lather up well the first time which means I have to use more product to get it to work. Its not a product for oily and thick hair at all. My friend has thin hair so I a assuming its better for thin hair.

                                ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo is sulfate-free and sodium chloride-free, so it is safe to use on keratin-treated, chemically-treated, and color-treated hair.
