    Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

    I agree with others that this shampoo does not lather well at all. I usually have to mix a small amount of another shampoo to feel like it's being effective. Used alone, I feel that it does not clean my hair well enough.

      Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

      I love the texture of my hair after rinse even before conditioning it feels smooth. It does not lather easily you have to work for it. The scent reminds me of play dough but the results are worth it.

        I have damaged thin hair and this shampoo cleans well enough so I don't get oily scalp, but yet doesn't tangle my hair or dry it out! I use it everday, also smells like a salon shampoo to me!

            Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

            I have used WEN products for years and although I do like them, I find the shampoo is almost "over conditioning". I discovered the Ulta brand and really like the product. It gives a nice balance to my hair...not over conditioned. Many of the reviews had negative concerns with a lack of lather. I have no problem with that as long as my hair is clean, not over conditioned, and has some degree of volume. This shampoo also has a pleasant fragrance and is very reasonably priced. Highly recommend !

                It does not lather and every time I used this product I had a drain full of hair. I would not recommend

                Smells great.
                Have to wash 2 or more times to have that clean feeling and suds.

                    I was on the hunt for a new shampoo/conditioner and I thought I would give this a try based on what the bottle said, the smell and I was able to get the conditioner at 50% off. I was a little scepitcal becuase the price is low, but I am willing to try any product out there. I have to say I am VERY happy. My hair is so soft and shiney and the frizz is gone. I was using top name salon brands and not getting these results. I highly recommend this shampoo and the conditioner to anyone.

                      This shampoo just doesn't lather, and I've never had this problem before even with cheaper shampoos. I have med long hair, and with the Redken shampoo I only needed 1 1/2 pumps, but 3-4 pumps with this ULTA shampoo.

                          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.
