      Comments about Paul Mitchell Color Care Color Protect Shampoo:

      Used this product once and it left my hair dry and felt like straw. It also felt like there was still product in my hair after rinsing it out really well. Only pro is it didn't fade my purple hair too much.

        Comments about Paul Mitchell Color Care Color Protect Shampoo:

        Left my hair feeling very dry. I have very fine hair (a lot of it) and I literally had to squeeze out soap from the bottle 3 separate times to lather through my hair. Using copious amounts. I wouldn't buy this or recommend it to family or friends. Only positive: smells ok.

            Comments about Paul Mitchell Color Care Color Protect Shampoo:

            This shampoo is horrible. I have to wash my hair at least twice to make it look clean at all, and after my hair is dry it feels thick and full of product even when it's perfectly clean. My hair is basically like straw after using this shampoo for a month. Threw it in the garbage and bought a replacement because I couldn't even deal with finishing the bottle. I will never purchase this again.

                It made my hair like straw! It absolutely dries your hair out terribly. I did not even finish the bottle before buying a new brand! Do not waste your money.

                  I bought the shampoo and conditioner and have been using for a month.I wash my hair every three days and I am pleased with the way my hair feels after using it. I have thick,unruly, coarse hair. After a month it is more manageable and easier to style.

                          I was looking for a color safe shampoo for my fine, limp hair that would give it a little volume. It's a nice shampoo that smells good and lathers nicely, but add volume it does not. I still have limp hair.
