    Leaves hair weighed down and greasy feeling

      Comments about Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo:

      (Note: not sure if the shampoo or conditioner was the culprit, so I'm leaving this review for both.) I have thick, wavy, frizzy, all-around "crazy" hair that I blow dry and flat iron. I tried this line hoping for an easier, smoother blowout. It definitely made a positive difference there. Unfortunately it left my hair heavy and greasy even after a thorough rinse - almost like I hadn't washed it at all. Returned both products to the store and went back to Pureology's hydrate sheer line that I was originally using.

                  I have been a long time user of Putology products and stock up when there is a discount. The Super Smooth ( in the curved mauve bottle) was my go to shampoo for years and now it seems they change the formula along with the bottle. This product is horrible, makes your hair stringy and appear dirty by the end of the day. So disappointed because now I have several bottles of the Super smooth shampoo and conditioner and now
                  Have to go looks for a new sulfate free shampoo. Would not recommend.

                          This stuff is awful. It left my hair so dry, it felt like straw. Returning it, i couldn't find my receipt, it was after 60 days, ULTA dumps your transactions after 60 days, so i received ,43 cents for a barely used bottle of shampoo. $4.50 for the conditioner. They give you not just the lowest sale price, the lowest sale price, then when someone used their points on top of that.

                          • Q:

                            My hair has never been color-treated, so my hair is virgin. However, I do suffer from very dry hair, part of which is from the use of heat tools. I quit using heat tools about a year ago, and I still continue to find myself with the same issue. What would be the best line of shampoo and conditioner through pureology to repair brittle, frizzy, broken, damaged hair that is very fine and thin?

Would Smooth perfection be the best choice to help maintain the color longer, counteract the effects of using an iron several times of week and tame the frizz?

                            Why have you changed your products? I have been using purology body shampoo for at least 10 years, worked great. The green bottle replacement is horrible! Nothing like the pink bottle! Very annoying. I will probably have to go to another product line. Nothing here works for me anymore. You have lost a loyal customer who has spent a lot on your products!

                            Are any pureology products good for non-color treated hair? I'm a natural redhead and have lots of issues with frizz and flyaways.

                              Pureology products can be used on all hair types; colored and non colored treated hair. The Smooth Perfection products will smooth and reduce frizz.

                            Does the Pureology line burn the eyes? I am used to Aveda Shampure, which does not burn your eyes.

                              Smooth Perfection Shampoo is a great shampoo to help tame frizz prone hair. Avoiding eye contact is highly recommended.
