          I have color treated hair and was looking for a product line that would add shine and moisture. I will admit I was suckered in by the advertising, who doesn't want Jennfier Anniston's hair? This product line didn't deliver for me and for the price there are better lines out there to try. Pass on this one.

          Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

          I am borderline product obsessed and have extremely damaged hair due to a botch dye job almost a year ago which resulted in breakage so severe I chopped 8in off!!! I love products and enjoy trying new stuff but am always on the hunt for that "holy grail" I do splurge on expensive products but if it works, to me, price isn't an issue! This is my 1st review but am compelled b/c after 1 use I'm ASTONISHED!! I've used macadamia products(which i do love) redken, purology, you name it but nothing truly made me feel like it was making a huge difference none the less working any miracles until this restore line! I put my hair through ALOT from daily flat irons to monthly highlighting and this line just took years of damage away after just 1 use! I only gave it 4 stars b/c I feel like I need to use it more than once and continue seeing results to give it 5 but try this! Btw I tried perfect hair day styling treatment awhile ago and hated it so don't be bias if you've tried just 1 product and weren't impressed!

              To make a long story short. I read all the reviews believing that, "Ok maybe this shampoo might be for me?" Well i was wrong. If your like me?
              And have very sensitive skin and a scalp? Then this line is not for you.
              From the first night i used the shampoo my scalp was irritated bad. it started stinging and itching and even some of my hair was already thinning from it which for me is very, very rare to happen. Ive never had this happened before and I've tried so many shampoos in the past. But, so many add so much build up to my scalp that it is annoying so I'm wary about what i use.
              This shampoo may be good for those that are already aware of what they can & can not use. But a quick note to my sensitive scalp people like myself. READ, READ, READ INGREDIENTS! Use shampoo's that are organic in ingredients without the bad toxins that can harm your hair, but mainly your scalp.

                Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

                Yes. Wow. So effective it required an attitude adjustment

                The Restore system worked so well that it required an Attitude Adjustment on my part.

                I had forgotten how wavy, bouncy and spring my hair actually was when it was young and healthy!

                Since hitting perimenopause, getting some gray which changes the texture of the hair somewhat, coloring, highlighting and heat styling, my hair had become more and more dry, damaged, fragile, unmanageable and like straw.

                And that was using natural hair color and avoiding silicones and sulfates! I tried home remedies, natural treatments, other brands for deep conditioning, etc. but a lot of them relied on silicones or oils.

                The ones that helped the dryness and damage a little also weighed my hair down, making it flat and lifeless. I started to think that with age and abuse my hair had just become full, thin and lifeless.

                When my hair stylist suggested cutting off 4 or 5 inches and "starting over" I did more research and decided to try this.

                All I can say is WOW!!!

                After one use of the shampoo and conditioned, about 85% of my damage was gone. GONE. My hair was no longer dry lifeless or like straw. Instead it was amazingly shiny, bouncy, springy, light on my head and full of life. Even the tippity ends were healthier and in a few more uses my hair's condition was nothing short of terrific.

                It was so bouncy, springy and full of life that my old styling methods and even my cut were not quite right anymore - because my hair had changed back to its youthful healthy self. I had new hair so I had to make an adjustment. It was totally easy to straighten it out, curl it up, etc. and my stylist was amazed. She was so amazed she is thinking of bringing the line into the salon. Anyway, after seeing my hair bouncy and wavy instead of fine, full and lifeless, she styled me a little bit differently and it looks great.

                Now I have been trying some of the other products for styling and so far, they're terrific too, and I will review them separately. I will say however these products work differently from others and they don't work too well mixing with other products… when I did, they weighed it down and it started to go dull and lifeless again. For now I am sticking with this line and just enjoying all the compliments!!!

                A comment on the shampoo. Most sulfate free shampoo does not lather too well. This one lathers beautifully so if you enjoy a nice lathered shampoo you will like this.

                important Tip - If you use silicone products on your hair REMOVE them first by clarifying BEFORE you try this line. If you don't, the sulfate free Restore shampoo does not do a super job at getting rid of heavy products because it is intended to be used with Living Proof products which don't build up. So if you have build up the Restore can't get to the hair to help it, and you will end up with even drier hair because it won't be getting conditioned.

                      At first I loved this shampoo. It did everything I wanted a shampoo to do (which is difficult since I have straight, fine hair). After a few weeks of use, I noticed my hair was getting dry. Then my hair started to break off. EVERYWHERE. It was awful. The next time I went to my stylist, she immediately noticed the breakage and how dry my hair was. The only thing I could think of was that it had to be the shampoo and conditioner. I switched to a different brand the breakage stopped and my hair finally feels and looks healthy again. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
