Most Helpful Positive Review Keeps my purple hair purple!!!
When I first got my hair colored, I bought a shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair. (I believe it was specifically for purple) it dried my hair out and the purple stayed in for about 3 weeks. After getting it redone i went to Ulta and purchased this and the conditioner. IT IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!! It is July 1st right now, my hair hasn't been done in3 months and it still is vibrant. It smells good, leaves my hair smooth (I don't even use a defrizzer anymore) and even my hair stylist immediately felt the difference. I absolutely love it!!!! It is also lightweight, I have no problem scrunching it if I want to!
Most Helpful Critical Review I am shocked at how much of my color washed out!
I was excited to use this shampoo. I recently colored my hair over a week ago and had been using L'Oréal color safe shampoo in the red bottle from the drugstore since I know it doesn't fade my color. Thinking Redken is a trusted salon quality brand, I ordered it on sale. I was in complete shock when I noticed the suds in my hair were dark brown and all the water and suds in the bottom of the shower were dark brown with all the color that rinsed out of my hair! I colored my hair over a week ago so all of the extra color would have been rinsed out already. This shampoo stripped my color out and now I have to go color my hair again. I am so disappointed in this product. I will be returning it to Ulta.

I was skeptical about this shampoo and conditioner because of all the mixed reviews, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway. I bought both the shampoo and conditioner and so far I am loving it!! They smell great, leave my hair soft, shiny and silky, and have kept my color vibrant.
Won't purchase again

Disappointed, leaves hair limp even while rinsing well with cool water. Plan to return and exchange.

I consistently buy and have been happy with other Redken products, but this shampoo doesn't lather well. Smell is ok. Not impressed.
Elizabeth from Virginia
This is the best shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair.
Best Color Protecting Shampoo

this is the only shampoo I use for my color treated red hair. My red never runs out.
I will be using this for as long as I have colored hair
Jessica from Michigan
First, I love the smell of this. It relaxes me and there's a subtle ness that stays in my hair that makes it smell like I just came from the salon. It has done wonders for keeping my hair colored (red, which washes out the fastest) as long as I wash and rinse with cool water. For those reviews saying it leaves their hair greasy — sulfates are what makes a shampoo lather and get really bubbly. Some people can't tell when it's full rinsed if there isn't a lather, and if you get out of the shower with a greasy feel, it just means the product wasn't washed out all the way.
Excellent and no buildup in scalp any longer!
Blondie91011 from Columbus, OH
I have fine hair but a lot of it and other shampoos (expensive ones) caused so much buildup in my hair and I had hair fallout into the drain which was so scary. I received a sample with my Ulta order and I love it so much! I haven't had any fallout and it lathers very well considering it's sulfate free. I no longer have buildup which is a big plus! I'm going to buy the large one after I write this!
My favorite shampoo
Erin from Keller, texas
I've gotten my hair dyed by different people within several years and each one recommends this shampoo and conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling soft and smells good after using it. It rinses out very easily I have never felt any excess product in my hair after.

So I rarely do reviews on products but I was truly impressed by this shampoo. I was recommended this shampoo along with the conditioner by a hair colorist when I mentioned my hair had been damaged and dry from a bleach job. I've always had healthy - shiny hair so I was not use to it being that dry. After adding this to my haircare routine, I could totally tell a difference. My hair looks healthier with more shine and less dry! Really soft as well. I'm so glad I bought it and definitely recommend for those with bleached or colored hair that's on the dry/damaged side. I'll admit It was a little pricey for someone who was use to drugstore shampoos but honestly it's worth it. You gotta invest in your hair if you want it to be healthy! (I only wash my hair around 2-3 times a week)
Leaves hair greasy and dull.
Gumby from California
Doesn't lather well. Hard to rinse out. Next day my hair is greasy and looks like it needs a good washing.
Color fades less when using both the shampoo & Conditi
Lrh70 from Sacramento
I find my color fades less when using Color Magnetics shampoo & conditioner versus other brands I've tried.
Very Happy with this Shampoo!
Jess from Tualatin
I wash my hair every 3 days or so and this shampoo leaves my hair soft and shiny. I love the scent too. It also protects the color.
Definitely an improvement
Nawabi4life from Seattle
I use this every time I need to wash my hair. I can tell the difference as it truly does what it states in regards to helping maintain color
My new shampoo!!
Chayo from IL
Love this product. Leaves my hair soft, manageable and shiny.
Mizzy from Texas
Gave me bumps rash in my scalp should not be on the shelf !!!!
Maritzza from California
I switched from OGX to this shampoo and conditioner set and within a couple of weeks of using it, I realized that my hair looked so dull and damaged. I continued to use it anyway, however, after a month I just had to stop using it. I went back to my OGX shampoo and within two weeks my hair was back to looking shiny and soft. I also didn't find that extended my color at all.
I would use this shampoo forever thanks!!

Get it on sale a lot thanks!!
Its ok but something changed
Lais from Green Bay Wi
I used to love this for color care but they have changed something. It doesnt lather well and leaves my hair feeling greasy. I work as a cna so I want clean hair and this does not do it for me. I will stick to the extreme shampoo for now.
Might buy again
Denise from Bethpage, NY
Smells nice. Color seems to last longer. Does not contain sulfates.

love this shamppp
Was disappointed but now LOVE
Jaymi from Florida
When I first tried this shampoo, I was a bit disappointed for the same reason as a lot of the other reviews. My hair was still so oily after washing. It saves my color like no other so I was so sad that I didn't love it all around.
I then considered the whole "lather, rinse, repeat" thing that you always hear.
I first wash with just a little bit to get the initial build up off, since I do stretch my wash days as far as possible.
Then after rinsing that, I do the actual wash.
This fixed the issue 100% for me and I'm in love.
Saving my color, but makes my scalp oily
Vicki from Selah, WA USA
I have been using these products (shampoo and conditioner) for 2 weeks. My color looks good, buy my scalp is oily. I will go back to the Matrix products when done with these.
Oh.. HECK YES!!
Jess from Ca
I bought the shampoo and conditioner with a lot of hesitance because of some of reviews I read.. However, I bought them just to try because of my color treated hair.
This shampoo and conditioner is 10 stars to me!! It made my hair so soft, so silky! It didn't make my hair oily and tangled.. I got compliments on my hair literally the first day I used it! There's no going back for me! You MUST try!!
