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.

I always miss my red hair because this shampoo was so lovely to use. Definitely extended the life of my dye job and keep it soft and voluminous when my processed hair is usually dry and sad. Want to dye again just to use this stuff.
Silky red hair
minneserena from undisclosed
I dyed my hair red about a month ago and got this right away to preserve the color. It seems to be doing a good job of that, as well as making my hair really silky and smooth. So silky that it has been sliding out of my invisibobbles! It has a clean, soapy smell and doesn't take much to lather up my long hair. I have thick, straight hair.

This product has kept my Teen Daughters dyed hair Bright red. Red is not an easy color to keep vibrant. And thanks to this shampoo its kept is bright color.
brings out highlights

I like it. I have natural auburn tones in my dark hair and this brings it out a lot. I wish there was better availability in stores and also its pretty pricey.
Maintaining red hair
helen8690 from undisclosed
Maintains dyed red hair is extremely difficult, it always fades so quickly. I recently started using the John Freida shampoo and conditioner and I have noticed a difference in the color. It does what it says and boosts the red tones and keeps my hair redder, longer.
it's just a shampoo
bellel4bdf from undisclosed
This shampoo claims to add red and make the color pop more, but all it did was work like a normal shampoo. Nothing really special, and you pay a lot for little product.
yes and yes!

John Freida Radiant Red Shampoo
shanm4 from undisclosed
Love the way this shampoo smells, lathers and makes my hair feel. When I'm coloring my hair I usually use red shades and this John Freida Radiant Red Shampoo and Conditioner help maintain my colors vibrancy longer. It's one of the best smelling shampoo and conditioner products I have used as well and since I'm sensitive to smells, that is a plus in my opinion. I highly recommend this shampoo.

Love the help to slow the grey
micheleinok from Altus, OK
I have been using this product for years and it has been great to help slow the grey from creeping into my natural read hair. When the sun lightens my hair in the summer it glistens with the red. I have a problem though, lately I have had a reaction to the product. First it was just dry scalp, now it's turning my whole head read like I;m flushed. I was wondering if you have changed ingredients lately that I'm having a reaction to?

When I had my red hair (which I'll soon be going back to) I used this! It worked wonders and helped my color stay fresh and vibrant. I'll be buying it again real soon to keep up my red again! It lathers good! I'm very satisfied with this product!
Great shampoo for redheads
actuallyashley from undisclosed
There arent a ton of color specific products for redheads so I was thrilled when I first came across this shampoo and its matching conditioner. It really helps keep my color looking vibrant for longer in between hair coloring appointments. It smells great and does a good job cleaning my hair and scalp.
Lindsay21 from undisclosed
I have naturally red/ brunette hair with naturally red highlights and low lights. This shampoo has saved my hair. The color depositing conditioner give more depth to my hair and enhances the natural color. It doesn't strip my hair but leaves it feeling nourished and clean. I will not be using a different shampoo anytime soon.
I love buying this product
Marie from San Antonio tx
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

you just wash your hair with this like normal shampoo and your red hair looks fabulous for a lot longer. ITS GREAT!!!
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!
Meggules from Windsor, Ontario Canada
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

I love using this shampoo I've tried all the products from John Frieda and it's the only hair care I'll use. Love the hair sprays and the hair treatments. My hair hasn't ever been this perfect before. I love everything by them!!
