I have done countless number of smoothing therapies on my hair basically amount every 5 months and I was devoted to a certain Brazilian keratin smoothing treatment and noticed that my results were average and it was "ok". One day I decided to make a change and try Keratin Complex instead. From that day, I was so amazed about the difference a brand can do for your hair. It added shine, got rid of the frizziness for longer, gave me healthier hair, and keep it straighter for longer. It has really been amazing and transformed the way I looked. After that, I got rid of all my shampoos and decided to go full KERATIN COMPLEX WITH EVERYTHING. I have the their hair straightener, shampoos, conditioners, everything. It's almost like each element was made to work with the other because I'm getting better looks and better results each time I add another piece of equipment that was made by Keratin Complex. These products work like less nothing else you have had before so stop wasting your money. I wouldn't be writing this entire essay telling you otherwise. I will always be buying your products and thanks Ulta for supplying them to me.
This shampoo is advertised as "free of sulfates" but it's not true. I checked the ingredients and it includes Sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, this is a "sulfate" and/or an "anionic surfactant". Anionic surfactants are harsh and extremely drying. DO NOT USE! For the sake of your hair's health don't buy this.

I was recommended this from an Ulta employee. It made my hair break off and my hair suffered quite a bit of damage. I have always used professional products on my hair and never box colored it.

I have dark color foiled in and around my natural white hair. Love the look. This shampoo is kind to the color and gentle on my natural white hair. My hair is soft and shiny. Love it!

This shampoo was recommended by my hairdresser for my colored hair. As other reviewers have said, the fragrance is not pleasing to me, but once I wash it out, the smell is gone - and it otherwise works well.

So I don't get keratin treatments which isn't helpful if that the review your looking for and never have ....I have thick course black hair this is the only thing that keeps nasty dandruff away and leave my hair feeling healthy I will continue to use this as long as it continues to work and the smell I don't mind
Stephanie from Los angeles, CA
Love that my hair feels clean and bouncy but my color is protected and vibrant. I even seem to get an extra day between washes which is great considering how soft and healthy my hair feels- not weighed down?

I have been getting keratin treatments for years. I have tried other shampoos and nothing out there is as good as this one. My hair is also color treated. This shampoo is gentle on the color. The Keratin products are the best on the market.

I have fine hair, and this is the only product that controls my fly away frizzing thin hair
Azul from Washington, DC
I use this product because my hair dresser insists on it after a Keratin treatment. I use it to appease him and it does in fact help prolong the Keratin. However, I cannot stand the way it smells! It does not leave my hair smelling nice. I wish they would change the scent altogether.
Joanna from Macomb MI
I use these products religiously and my color and keratin straightening treatment last way longer than I would have imagined.
TJ from Texas
I could not blow dry my hair without getting the brush caught.
After a 1 day it gets nasty. I think its just moisture overload.
Bevy from Pa
Great for taming frizzies.

I received the keratin treatment in the salon and was recommended this product to extend the service. I've only used it twice and cannot get past the smell... it's soooo unpleasant, I cannot stand it. Once the hair is dry the scent goes away. It smell of hot garbage or sewage. And on top of that I have welts and scabs on my head because I must be allergic.
Kay from Greer Sc
my hair seems more brittle and dry--even after a keratin treatment with this new formulation (?) and packaging. Notice shampoo really foamy and hard to rinse out. I thought sulfate-free shampoos aren't supposed to suds up so much. After shampoo, couldn't get a comb through my hair if I didn't use the conditioner.
Marilynn from LaPlata, MD
I purchased this very expensive shampoo, then realized it said nothing about being paraben free or sulfate free. I assumed since it was so expensive and it's a keratin product, it would be paraben and sulfate free. When I got it home and read that it in fact contains methylparaben, I took it back.

have been using it for over an year now. Liked sky blue packaging better. One of the best shampoos, better than even some highly expensive professional care brands.

I have dry hair that is halfway between wavy and curly, but in the Texas humidity most often ends up just frizzy and frustrating, even when I blow it out and use my straightening iron. I've been using Redken Frizz Dismiss because the salon I go to uses Redken--but honestly I've tried every smoothing and anti-frizz product out there with disappointing results.
So I picked up travel sized versions of this shampoo and the matching conditioner on a whim, and OMG this is finally my holy grail hair care duo! I use a bit of Frizz Ease Smoothing Creme with it too, so I'm not sure how much to attribute my results to that product, but my hair is now smooth, shiny, soft, and not weighed down. I don't find the scent to be objectionable as others have noted. I'm just so thrilled that this works and hopefully I won't spend so much time fighting my hair in the mornings.

Product does its job! Smooth effect!
ultalover from Ft.Myers, FL
have been a fan of Redken for a while also tried other brands like Kendra. however, my hairstylist recommended the heat protector and I decided to buy the shampoo and conditioner. they were on sale (jumbos) because they are a bit expensive. I love it. Me personally I like the smell and how my color hair feels after using it. I am going to stick to it for a while.
Awni from Los Altos
I had heard great things about this line and decided to try it for myself, doesn't lather at all, and honestly hair feels the same after a wash/condition. Going back to olaplex. One positive thing I can say is that it left my hair soft, but again it didn't feel clean, so what's the point -_-
Momof4 from WA
The shampoo and conditioner work great. I just got a keratin treatment and they were recommended by my stylist. The only problem is the smell. Seriously. It stinks. Why couldn't they put a little fragrance in it? I don't even know how to describe it...chemical? Broccoli? Just not good. I bought the huge bottle, so I'm in it for a good long time. We'll see if I can make it through the bottle.
JoanieO@BeachBum from Newport, RI
I use this shampoo every other day, except in the summer, as I live in New England, only a 7 minute drive to a beach and swim in the ocean, so shampooed hair is necessary daily, during the hot months. I receive compliments on my hair from young women, how shiny and great my hair is, and I'm 69 years old! Great shampoo for the price--easy to use via a pump, and has a fresh-smell. Only downside is that if you haven't washed your hair in 2-3 days, you may need to rewash your hair in the shower twice, to get the shampoo to suds..don't know if that's because my hair is thick, though. However, this is an all-around nice shampoo for the money from Ulta, while earning bonus points too.

I have color/keratin treated hair that is very thick & coarse. I can't live without my Keratin treatments but it doesn't come cheap. I try and extend it as long as possible. I am going on month four of my treatment & I can tell you other than new growth which I can manage, my hair is shiny, smooth & bouncy. I love the shampoo and the conditioner.
