    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 !

        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.

                  Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

                  I bought this product hoping to find a new favorite for my color-treated hair. It smells wonderful, but I feel I need to use way more product than I should in order to feel I lather all the oil out of my hair. I'd also like to add that I try not to wash my hair daily and I with my previous I could go three days without washing and my hair still looked decent. With this shampoo, I can maybe wash every other day before my hair starts to look and feel greasy.

                  Was suing Pureology and wanted to give this a try because it is sulfate and paraban free, works well, and I expected only little lather, but this gives virtually no lather at all. Over all a good product.

                      Comments about ULTA Smooth and Protect Shampoo:

                      To be honest, I was hesitant about buying this product because I wasn't sure how well it would work since I spent only around $10 for both a huge bottle of shampoo AND conditioner! However, these products make my hair softer and shinier than salon brand, expensive shampoos/conditioners such as Pureology (though they're great too)! I will definitely buy again! I didn't like the scent of this shampoo all that much at first, but have gotten used to it. It reminds me of the beach and sunscreen a bit.
                      Bottomline: You MUST try this shampoo and condtioner pair out! You get so much product, and for the price..? What do you have to lose? :-)

                          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.
