Most Helpful Positive Review Great Smelling, but need to use with conditoner
I was lucky enough to get to try this, while i have dyed hair is it kinda a redish brown color and after washing it the red just didnt seem very bright any more and figured that this would be a great product to try and see if it would help brightening it up. Now this is a two product system first you use the shampoo to kinda clean up your hair so that the conditioner can add color. Im going to talk about the shampoo and the pros and cons.
Starting off this shampoo has a really nice fruity pomegranate scent, just really fresh with a light sweetness that i really enjoyed and it was thick enough to lather throughly in your hair where it didnt just drip every where but think enough where it lathered up quickly and made it easy to rinse and while the shampoo doesnt add color my hair felt clean but not dried out and my hair smelled really good.
For cons the only cons i had was i wasnt sure if the shampoo was really necessary to use for the conditioner to add or enhance the red in my hair and pretty sure that it was just the conditioner that added the color, though really for the scent alone it was worth it. Also I didnt really see any recognizable ingredients in this which for me isnt too big of a deal but if your looking for something in a more natural shampoo this probably isnt a good pick, but for me this isnt really a huge deal.
Overall a very decent shampoo and would buy it for that but really dont think alone it does much for the color but works well with the conditioner and would be willing to buy again both together.
Most Helpful Critical Review Red-ish
I've successfully used John Frieda Brilliant Brunette color boosting products in the past and noticed a difference, so I was interested in trying this because red is one of the hardest colors to keep vibrant. I have brown hair that I frequently dye in red hues and tried this both recently after I had colored my hair, as well as when it had grown out for some time. First off, just cleaning-wise, the shampoo does its job. It's a bit thick coming out of the tube, but I don't find that I need to use more of it than other shampoos. I used it in conjunction with the Radiant Red conditioner and found that although my red wasn't the bright red I would have associated with the word "radiant," it did keep it at a soft strawberry brown hue. Overall, I wouldn't say that the effect is very noticeable, but it does seem like a good daily shampoo for people who want to keep some red hues in their hair.

My hair is red and this is the only shampoo I use
Not great and smells weird
Lauren from Hawaii
This product was just ok. I used the entire bottle along with the conditioner over a few weeks, but I really didn't see much of a difference in the level of color fading. It also made my hair harder to comb through after showering. The smell is also not great. Overall, I just wasn't impressed with this product. I will be switching back to my previous shampoo.
Works like a charm

The perfect bump of red
Lauriemichelle from Ponchatoula, LA
I have naturally light strawberry blonde hair and I have found that as I've gotten older, the red has faded (which is a thing for redheads, we fade before we gray) and this is perfect for keeping my hair from looking washed out and dull in color.
Love this product!

I've been dying my hair red for years and nothing comes close to helping keep its bright colour then this shampoo. It smells amazing too.
Resplendent Red Highlights
Sunstar72 from Hollywood, FL
I really love this product!! My hair when I was younger was Coppery Red and as I grew older my color began to get darker. I missed the shine and vibrancy of my childhood hair-color so I gave John Freida's Radiant Red Shampoo a try; and was quite pleased with the highlights in my hair after only a few washes!! I'll have to see if the Radiant Red Conditioner is in stock to see if there will be more impovements.
Best shampoo ever

Locks in coloor
Jensis81 from Middle TN
I bought John Frieda-Red Boosting Shampoo a couple years ago......the last time I died my hair red. I usually do it once or twice a year. When I used John Frieda-Red Boosting Shampoo it did pretty good. Less color falling out after I washed it. And way less on my pillow from sleeping. Next time I decide to dye my hair red I will be buy more of this John Frieda shampoo!
aphrodite from New York, NY
The name of this shampoo is perfect. More red? Yes. Redder? YES! Boost that redness? YASSS!! I look wonderful. Not brassy. Just a more vibrant version of my burgundy-colored hair.
