How to Use
Rated 4.48 out of 5 stars
First off, you should not be daily washing your hair when it's color treated. Period. Dry shampoo should become your bff. If you're trying to wash daily with color treated hair, no shampoo is going to save that color. You should definitely wait before washing right after it's colored. Getting your hair colored is expensive and demands a change in your hair care routine. I've had the same bottle forever and my purple hair looks amazing no matter how long I wait between getting it done.
I had high hopes, but they were dashed. I used Redken Color Extend for years with great color-saving results, but felt over time that it was not getting my scalp clean. Tried this and went from golden brown to straw color in 3 weeks.

I dye them ends of my hair purple (with Arctic Fox)
This shampoo works wonders in keeping the color vibrant. I discovered though every-time I use it though my scalp flakes really badly. I thought I was forgetting to wash it all out and even bought oil to calm my scalp. When I switched back to a normal cruelty free shampoo the flaking went away.
I'd only recommend this product to people who don't have super sensitive skin, especially when it's winter time too in your area! Again. Amazing product. I just have fussy skin

This is the ONLY shampoo I've found in ten years searching for a shampoo that makes my hair feel clean . We have well water that goes through so many processes and is so "soft". I have thick, shoulder length hair and this doesn't weigh it down . I can occasionally go a day without shampooing and hair still feels fluffy.

My stylist nearly 20 years ago got me started on this line. I found that all I needed was the Color Protecting Shampoo and not conditioner. It serves as my all in one. I don't color anymore. I grown to appreciate my dirty blonde with grey coming in. My hair is fine (except for the grey), but I have a lot of it. Getting weighed down is a serious issue for me. This does not weigh me down and it gives me volume. I've tried the volumizing shampoo, but I get better results with this. I love using Redken Clean Maniac once a week for a deep cleanse because I do use styling products that tend to cause build up.

I highlight my hair and after 5 weeks the color starts growing out and the body from the coloring starts to fade too. This shampoo blends the areas where demarcations appears and gives my hair body too. I would recommend it to people who color there hair. However it is very expensive. It is much higher than other shampoos for color treated hair. I have tried several other brands this is one of the best out there.

I've used Aquage color protecting shampoo, detangler and thickening spray for about 20 years. My stylist turned me onto to it because that's the product line that he uses on his clients. Started buying the product from him, and was happy that Ulta started carrying it.
Disapointed that I can no longer purchase the large bottle of Color Protecting Shampoo. Was told it will be available in July. Not sure what happened

I have used Aquage products for color treated hair for several years. I don't have to get my hair colored nearly as often as I used to. The products for color-treated hair work!

My beautician recommended this shampoo to hold color and shine. It works. I've been using this for 4 years.

First of all, I am proud to endorse Aquage products. I shampoo my highlighted and colored hair every other day with the shampoo made for colored hair and also use the conditioner for colored hair. The Aquage shamppo and conditioner leave my hair healthy and easy to style. In addition, I use other Aquage hair products which complete my hair care.

Took me a while to adjust to the low lather but it does make my hair shine and seems to preserve my color

Since it's a solid company, and I've have years of positive experience with the product, I am happy with the end result.

Cassandra from Fort Worth, Texas
I have always used Tresemme as i've always had virgin hair. Recently i dyed my hair and I wanted to take care of it. After two uses, it left my scalp dry! I haven't had dry scalp in years!! Also, it is supposed to be "Color protecting" but it is nothing as it's supposed to be! my hair changed from an ashy blonde color to a ugly yellow color! Seriously disappointed!!! besides the fact that i paid $60 for conditioner and shampoo!
