    Comments about Sebastian Drench Shampoo:

    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.

          Love this shampoo! It lathers my thick wavy hair and smells great. It also doesn't dry it out after a wash. I've been using this product for years and I definitely take advantage of the large bottle sales at Ulta since it can be pricey.

                        I purchased the Sebastian Drench shampoo and conditioner liter bottles, which I previously purchased from my salon. My order just arrived and the shampoo smells different. I went online to the Sebastian professional site to compare ingredients, they are different. Is it possible I received a counterfeit product?? Also, the ingredients listed in the Ulta site are different than what's on the bottle and what's listed on the professional site...please advise.

                          Ulta is an authorized seller of our product. If you purchased the product for a non professional website you may have received a counterfeit product. If you purchased it from Ulta, it is in fact Sebastian's product. Ulta's ingredent list should be accurate.

                          The Coty policy is we do not perform, nor do we ever commission any third parties on our behalf to perform, testing of our products or ingredients on animals, except where required by law.

                          All our products are safe and have been developed, manufactured and packaged in compliance with the laws, regulations and guidelines that are applicable in each country in which they are sold. Our safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients is based on the use of recognized alternatives to animal testing, the use of existing safety data and, increasingly, the sharing of such data with other industries.

                          It is common knowledge that China requires mandatory animal tests on all cosmetic products imported into the country. We continue to be involved in the dialogue with the Chinese authorities, including through our active membership of the China Association of Fragrance Flavor and Cosmetic Industries (CAFFCI), to replace animal tests with alternatives. As a result, China has recently started to investigate ways to replace animal testing and has sought the assistance of European scientists.

                          We have been actively involved in the research and development of alternatives to animal testing for many years. We were a party to SEURAT-1, the single largest Private-Public Partnership initiative which aimed to develop alternatives to animal testing of cosmetic products. With a total contribution of €50 million, funded in equal by the European Commission and the cosmetics industry, it managed to produce some alternative methods to animal testing and set the ground for further development of which we are also part.

                          The common goal of all these efforts is to completely replace animal testing through validated alternative methods which ensure our products are safe for consumer use.
