I was BEYOND shocked at some of the reviews on here compared to my experience.
I originally wanted something to replace the Redken Color Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner (or whichever one is in the pink bottle). I looked this up since ULTA was having their jumbo sale at the time and was hesitant to try this one because of the reviews. For whatever reason though, I decided to go with this. I took a chance and let me tell you I don't regret this purchase one bit.
I have seen a MAJOR difference in my hair. Specifically in terms of breakage and how shinny it is. I have very dark, pitch black colored hair. I get so many compliments on how healthy and shiny it looks since I've started using it. For reference, it had been a year since I got my hair cut and my coworker always asked if I had gotten one whenever my hair was worn down. That is how healthy this shampoo has made my ends.
As far as the color protection goes I couldn't be happier, my hair hasn't faded in the slightest and it's been about six months. I will mention I only wash once a week which may stall the fading process but regardless I am beyond happy. I always felt as if Redken stripped the color from my hair.
I don't get any greasy hair issues. My hair isn't weighted down. I get quite the opposite and find my hair has good volume once dried! Perhaps my hair type is just meant for this formula. I suppose it's just a bummer to me that people didn't have the same awesome experience that this product gave me :(
10/10 this is hands down my new fave shampoo and conditioner duo.
I rarely write reviews. With that being said I wanted to come here and write my opinion on this product that I was not 100% happy with . To begin with my hair is not oily what so ever I have shoulder length hair my hair is thick , if your wondering my hair type. With this shampoo and conditioner I had to wash my hair every other day I would wash it every day if I could with this shampoo and conditioner if I had the time because this shampoo and conditioner made my hair so oily not only did it make it oily but it made my hair feel as if I had put a lot of chemicals and just didn't feel clean left so much residue. I did love the smell of it and for the price I knew I had to use it all up , wasn't about to throw my money away. I did try this shampoo and conditioner for 3 and a half months , with haircolor treatment. As for it protecting my hair color within the 4th ,5th wash my hair color had faded . With other shampoos and conditioners I was able to even go 3 days with out washing my hair and my hair barley being oily by the 3rd day. I will not be buying this product again.

With this i've been able to go 7 days between washes! A hair dresser destroyed my hair, & this has helped bring it back to life!

Used it recently after I colored my hair and literally made my color bleed out... DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE COLOR PLSSSS!!! Waste of money and use 😣
CMF from Pacific Northwest
Disappointed, this made my hair super greasy after just one wash - it didn't feel clean at all and felt gross and disgusting. I wouldn't recommend for regular use, there are other brands with far superior color protect shampoo like Paul Mitchell.

I wash my hair every other day. I have used a lot of products for color-treated hair, and Joico is the best by far.
Kristie from Tightwad Missouri
I am 40ish yrs & have finally found a shampoo that i can use everyday that doesnt dry hair out. Furthermore i dont even have to use conditioner.. I do have this conditioner but don't use it ALL the time

Perfect shampoo for colored hair.
Dawnie from VA - Virginia
I was surprised after using this shampoo and following it with the conditioner my hair did not feel soft and manageable as it usually does.
Caitlyn from Florence , KY
This shampoo is so terrible. It washed out all my burgundy hair dye and I had to go back to the salon to get more color put back in!
It also made my scalp super greasy! Right after blow drying my hair I ran my hands through my hair and my scalp felt sooo dirty, greasy, and just downright gross.

Ive been using this shampoo and conditioner for a year now and it's made my hair so healthy and feel like its helped it grow so fast. I ran out about 2 weeks ago and started using a random off brand shampoo in the mean time, and now I'm realizing how good the Joico shampoo really is. So repurchasing and will make sure i don't run out again. I have thin oily hair and this helps my hair feel clean and healthy, definitely helps my oiliness.
KelWall from Arizona
At first I loved this shampoo. I only used a small amount, but felt like my hair looked great, and color lasted longer. After a few uses It was harder and harder to get all the shampoo out. Although it felt like it was out when I was blow drying there was a spot in the back/top of my head that never seemed to dry completely, and by the end of the day looked like I hadn't washed my hair in days. I don't wash my hair everyday, but started too because of this. I finally resorted to using my husbands shampoo, and my wash lasted a few days. Love Joico shampoo just not this one.
Oliv from Texas
I wish I would've seen these reviews before purchasing! Switched from the "dry damaged shampoo" from Joico to this bottle (sulfate free is what sold me) and let me just say I had to take 2 SHOWERS and my hair still came out disgustingly oily/thick/waxy!!! My hair appeared wet and felt sooooooo nasty. I cannot believe this product is on the shelves!
Kel from R. Oregon
I won't use any other shampoo or conditioner other than Joico.
Mikayla from Dallas, TX
Leaves my hair feeling absolutely disgusting after every use and looks like I haven't washed my hair in days. Dries out my ends but leaves my roots clumpy and excessively oily. Not good for colored or bleached hair! My hair is now brassy and dull after just having it done a month ago.
Lissy from ND
Made my hair feel dry & never really clean..
Kay from Utah
This product makes my hair feel SO GROSS. Feels like it never truly washes out of your hair! Shocked at how bad this truly is.
MJ from NC
Did amazing things for the red color but left an oily residue on my hair. Weighed down my hair and made it look very greasy even on the same day of washing. Left so much gunk in my hair brush that I couldn't get out and had to buy a new brush because of it. I don't know how to explain it but it was awful. Don't know if anyone else has had a similar experience or if it could've been an allergic reaction of some sort but just not a fan.
Darla from New Mexico
I'm so glad I'm not the only one to experience the dirty hair feeling because it made my hair feel disgusting!
Fiona from Springfield
My daughter loves sulfate free Joico shampoo and conditioner. Its purpose is to keep color last longer and prevent hair damage. She was satisfied with the purchase that I bought for her.
Ash M. from Mchenry, il
I bought this in hopes of taking better care of my bleached hair. It left my hair so oily and dull. I felt like I had to wash it everyday and still wasn't feeling "clean" with that.
Kenzie from Indiana
I wanted to love this but it just doesn't clean my hair. My hair feels super greasy and just gross when I use this.
Val from Orange county
This shampoo is horrible. It made my hair super dry and shriveled. As if I had burned it with a hot tool. I've never had issues with dry hair. Do not recommend
Amanda from Goodyear
I have WHITE blonde hair and I've been using this product for a couple years now. It works AMAZING at keeping the yellow brassy colors out of my hair a leaving a nice white finish to it.
I've read comments about how greasy it leaves other people's hair, I have not had that problem with the shampoo but I did have that problem with the conditioner.
LALAinLA from Los Angeles, CA
This is the best shampoo out there if you process your hair. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for natural hair. If you're dry, prone to tangles, frizzy, not frizzy, bleached, highlighted, super long, whatever this is the shampoo you need if you like smooth, shiny hair. This plus the conditioner is the only stuff that I've used that allows me to get a brush through my hair without a leave in. This is the stuff you need if you don't wash your hair daily. This is not the right shampoo for daily users. This is for us girls that live on dry shampoo. You know who you are. Wash every few days with this and use a clarifying every now and then because this stuff could get heavy and build up over time. But trust me it's great.
Nicole from NY
Sulfate free and it is amazing what this has done for my hair. It gets my hair thoroughly clean and doesn't leave it with a film. It helps to maintain color, lessened my frizz, and smells so great. Also, I was so shocked that my hair held curls after using this. I couldn't be happier with this product
Chrissy from Michigan
I already purchased another jumbo!
