I believe I have found the best shampoo + conditioner in the higher end of these products - I can honestly say at least for me it compares to Pureology shampoos and conditioners and is far less the cost of Pureology. I have probably tried every higher end shampoo and conditioner out there and my newest discovery is Drench shampoo + conditioner by Sebastian. I have used both several times now and every time my hair turns out soft & manageable. When I get my hair colored and highlighted it becomes very dry and difficult to manage afterwards. These products bring back the softness, my hair looks healthy and is easy to style again. The cost is actually very fair when compared to many other higher end products. I also use Sebastian hair spray which is the best of the best. Sebastian has a great line of products.
I really wanted to love this shampoo. I first tried it when I stayed at a friends place and didn't bring shampoo with me. She told me to just use the drench shampoo in her shower. I did and I loved it from the start. It smelled amazing, felt fancy and made my hair feel great. I went to work that day and received multiple complements on how great my hair looked. I think I may have just blowdried it but didn't style it in any other way. So I jumped on the next sale and bought two huge bottles of the shampoo and conditioner. However after several uses, ever other day I wash my hair. I was sorely disappointed. My hair started to thin and break and fall out. I know other issues can lead to hair loss and breakage like stress and diet but it started shortly after I began using this shampoo. I spoke with several professionals and they said that sometimes all of the protein in these type of shampoos can add too much protein to your hair which can cause it to break readily. So use at your own risk, it can damage your hair in the long run.

I have fine medium length blonde highlighted hair. I have recently started to only wash my hair twice a week. I was using Opalex and didn't find it worth the hype. Unfortunately the search for Shampoo/Conditioner will continue. I do not like shampoo that turns my hair into a knot when I use it and that's exactly what this one did.

My mom keeps this at our beach house and it is the only shampoo I have found that can get my hair out of tangles after a day in salty hair after having a messy-salty ocean water-top knot up for hours. Before even using conditioner my hair is smooth and tangle free. I have honestly never used anything quite like it. 10/10 recommend

I love the smell of it. I'll continue to use the conditioner and see how it goes. You should see how dry and flakey my scalp is after 3 uses. I only shampoo my hair every 2-4 days. I am so sad that it's had such a terrible effect on my hair. I wanted to love it so bad!!

I discovered Sebastian years ago and no matter what shampoo I end up with I always return to my true love. Take it from me, there is no better shampoo and conditioner out there for fine, color treated hair. This line adds moisture to your hair and will leave it soft and shiny. A little bit goes a long way and is well worth the price.

My hair is medium thick and coarse, with type 3B curls, so I needed some moisture for my dry hair. I tried another expensive brand before this one, and my hair was left feeling dry in need of conditioner. I decided to return that one and bought this after reading all the good reviews. My hair felt great right after using the shampoo with some slip and super clean. I only needed to wash it once to get the deep clean feeling, and my hair felt very moisturized.

This is a very good shampoo for dry, curly hair and my first Sebastian purchase ever. I'm likely to repurchase the brand, most likely the Color Ignite as I'm about to color again.

My friend told me to get this and I love it and the conditioner! Smells nice and clean and softens my very dry, tangly hair! If you have dry and/or color treated damaged hair you'll love this! Definitely recommend!

I bought this shampoo and conditioner based on reviews and a lot of research. I didn't have high hopes because I've spent years and thousands of dollars on hair products and treatments without much success. My hair continued to be dry, frizzy, and embarrassing.
I've been using this shampoo for a week and my hair looks amazing. It is soft, manageable, and straightens with ease. It used to take at least half an hour to straighten my hair and it was still frizzy. I just straightened it in 10 minutes.

Best shampoo I have tried by far...and I have tried many!!

This conditioner, along with the corresponding shampoo, feels great on my hair. Bonus is that the smell is AMAZING
JenniC from Niagara Falls, NY
This shampoo is AWESOME! I had been using a Klorane shampoo and while it worked well it didn't do what this shampoo does. I noticed distinct difference in the texture of my hair while I was shampooing. I then used the matching conditioner and WOW! my hair is soft and bouncy, shiny and my waves are not frizzy for once and are defined. I just used it for the 2nd time today, and my hair looks even better.

This shampoo does wonders for my hair! I love how my hair feels when I leave a salon, and this shampoo does the same for me at home.

Provides a great amount of moisture for my curls

I've struggled with scalp issues for about 9 months. Went to dermatologist and he prescribed a lotion to apply 3 x a week. Did not help. Also used OTC shampoo made for dry, itchy scalp. No relief.
I bought a trial size of the Drench Moisturizing shampoo hoping for some kind of results. After the first use I could tell a big difference. I was amazed at the result I have gotten. I have since purchased the 33 ounce size. Still have not had any issues since using this shampoo. This product has worked for me. I would highly recommend.

This is my favorite Salon Shampoo product. Along with the conditioner. When I used to color my hair (silver, white, platinum), this is the product I would use to keep my hair from drying out. I no longer color my hair, but I like to keep it on hand for the days when my hair is really struggling - mostly in the winter when I dry out. It always brings the moisture back to my hair, keeping it silky smooth and hydrated. Plus it smells amazing. Highly recommend!

I have a scalp that's pretty oily and I wash my hair every other day. Some shampoos remove enough dirt and grime to leave my hair feeling and looking clean without overstripping it (which can cause it to be even oilier). But this one just isn't it. It has a nice fragrance but it doesn't cleanse my hair enough, making it look oily before the end of day 1. I'm glad I got it on a steep discount but I will definitely not repurchase this product.

Went blinde for the first time in my life and my hair stylist recommended but I waited until they were on sale so the shampoo I was using in the meantime dried my hair out baaaaad. As soon as I used this my hair felt so smooth and moisturized.

Hubs loves it. And he usually likes whatever's cheapest, until he tried this. Now he reminds me when its low, and if it runs out he's constantly asking when's my Drench coming in??
Betty from Seattle, WA
Hands down this is the best shampoo I ever used! I am picky when it comes to shampoos, and my hair does not tolerate a lot of products, since it´s fine and sensitive. I loved this shampoo from the first use. It´s so creamy, really love how it feels. It lathers well and hair looks super healthy, shiny and soft. I´ve never was so impressed by a shampoo! Will buy again and highly recommend.

I use this product in pair with the matching conditioner. I was using a clarifying shampoo and it was breaking and damaging my hair. After my trim, my hair stylist from a salon outside of ulta gave me a sample of this. I fell in love with the first use. It's exactly what I needed. I used to be scared of hydrating shampoos, because I used to have "greasy" hair. I wash my hair every 2-3 days and I have no issues with this product. My family and friends have noticed a difference in my hair. It felt better on the first use. It's so smooth and hydrating but again is not greasy looking. I use about a quarter sized amount of each on my medium length hair. This shampoo is good to bring to the ends of the hair. The conditioner, focus on the ends, and then I comb my hair from the bottom up with a wide toothed comb. When I rinse the product out, my hair is so smooth I just finger comb my hair before getting out of the shower. I don't use any out of the shower leave- in products at the moment since I think this set does everything I want it to.

This Shampoo gets my hair clean and I also use the conditioner and it leaves my dry hair so soft. Everyones hair is different and will react differently. But for me this works great. But I would never leave a bad review for something that didn't work on my hair, but may work for someone else. I might would give a 3 star if it didn't work for me. This one works for my course dry hair and it gets a 5 star.

Have used the Sebastian Penetraitt , and it was a little heavy for my fine damaged hair. So I tried the Drench. it smells great , but make's my fine highlighted hair fly away, and it turned my white highlighted hair a dark yellow. Will stick with Opalex for now, and continue my search for an everyday shampoo and conditioner.

I'm using this product to help fight humidity frizz. A small amount goes a long way, created a luscious lather, smells great and doesn't weigh my hair down.
