Rated 5 out of 5 by Beachy from Impressive This shampoo, along with the conditioner for color treated hair, leaves my hair in really good shape: soft, not dried out and manageable. It has never stripped the color as it it quite gentle. My hair colorist was impressed with the condition and color last of my hair. He was a bit surprised when I told him it was an inexpensive drug store product and not a salon product. So kudos and props to Garnier!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CarlyMarie from Took the color right out of my hair! I've been coloring my hair for years and I've used tons of different shampoos, color safe and not. I figured id try this one out and I am beyond disappointed. Actually, pretty angry. When I rinsed the product from my hair, I could see all the color just rinse down the drain. I would have had better results using a shampoo that ISNT 'color safe'. Now, I need to spend even more money on getting my hair re-dyed. First wash after getting it dyed, and there is barley any color left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pugmom from Perfect This is my first time trying this shampoo after coloring my hair a month ago. I am amazed at how well it locks in the color and shine, my hair looks just as good as it did the first day I colored it. It does exactly what it says it will do! My new favorite shampoo! Been telling all my friends about it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CAB1989 from Never again I will never buy this shampoo or conditioner for when I dye my hair again, I spent a little extra on hair dye than I normally do and I loved the shade of red it was it turned out great..... Until I used this shampoo my RED hair was no longer red how I wanted it, it first turned pinkish and is now very dull. Such a waste of money. I now have to redye my hair and will be buying a different shampoo and conditioner for after.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Amburli from Violet to lavender I spent $100 to achieve dark purple hair. After using this product once, I noticed my shower turned purple. I dry my hair and noticed it is now a very light pinkish lavender. I'm very upset and wasted my money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cass26 from No thanks Sodium Laureth Sulfate Is the second top ingredient which can strip color molecules from the hair cuticle. Same with the alcohol in it. My hairs dried out, and the color washed most of the way out in the first two weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tnguyenn from WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR, IT HAS It says exactly what it does. You definitely won't regret choosing this product to take care of your color treated hair. I definitely loved the results. After using this product and the Garnier conditioner, my hair came out so soft, not to mention way more vibrant than before. I definitely recommend you try this product out and the conditioner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LifeBeFly from Doesn't leave product build up! I know color treated shampoos and conditioners get a bad reputation for leaving product build up. But this one doesn't! I have very thick, long, naturally wavy hair and usually I have to add in some leave-in conditioner and other things after I get out of the shower to make my hair soft and frizz free. First time I used this, I didn't have to do anything. My hair was so soft, shiny, still a little frizzy but I felt no product build up at all. And even a bunch of washes later, still the same feeling. It works great on keeping my red dyed hair vibrant, and my color usually lasts about a month to a month and a half before I have to touch up. So glad I picked this up, totally recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyB from terrific for my colored hair Love this product - it really helps hold my color, so I don't have to re-color as often -- this is the only shampoo (and conditioner) I use on my hair now. And it smells great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Morgan024 from Good at maintaining color. The shampoo leaves a lot of build up and makes my ends very dry, but my color does look spectacular. I use Garnier Ultracolor R3 religiously to get my hair red, and the shampoo keeps the red super bright. Plus, it smells awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Xina from kind to my hair It does not rip up my hair or splits it. The color will stay in longer and brighter. It will leave your hair smelling nice with your bright color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zeggers from Works Great! I started dying my hair red a few years ago, and immediately realized that red dye is the quickest to fade. So I switched to the Color Shield products and the red takes much longer to fade. And it smells great and keeps my hair healthy and shiny :) I only use this now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WinterNatt from purrfect! This product is amazing. After trying to find a great shampoo that doesn't wash out black dye, is hard. But this actually worked. Paired with the conditioner, it not only works great but it smells amazing! It left my hair very silky and smooth, which is rare, and I am in love with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jessica3 from Question I have color treated hair, blond base with blond highlights and I currently use Garnier's shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair. But, I also use a curling iron to curl my hair, and I think since I first started coloring and curling my hair, I have lost a lot...mostly when I am brushing it or after I curl it, not so much in the shower or anything. I want to start using fall fight to save all the hair I have left now, but I am not sure how it will affect my blond colored hair. Can I use this product for my color treated hair that I am going to style with a straight iron often, about every other day? ... or am I better off sticking with color shield? Also what products are good for me to use to treat my hair, like hair masks, or protective serums for my styling?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lindsey1110 from Excellent..if you like bald s pots Started using this shampoo & the conditioner about a month and a half ago. About two weeks after I started, (no change in diet, and I'm in my early 20s,) my hair started falling out in CLUMPS every time I took a shower. I continued to use the shampoo because I didn't put two-and-two together. Finally I realized that the only change in my life was the shampoo. Finally I switched brands and a week or so later, no more clumps of hair in the drain! Within a month of using this I had a couple of visible balding spots. I will never purchase this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllysontheStudent from My hair is still a nice purple. I love this shampoo/conditioner. It makes my hair feel amazing afterward. It comes out so soft. Which was great for fixing my hair when I bleached it to dye it purple. The purple also stays in a lot better with this set.

Rated 1 out of 5 by musicmom from I'm disappointed. I used this shampoo for several years and loved it. The last formula change was disastrous! It began to make my hair feel coated and unclean. I had to move on. Currently using Pantene.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kaland21 from Not a Keeper It's been a while since I've tried a shampoo for color treated hair, so I'd thought I'd give it a go....and wasn't impressed. It flat out made my hair feel weird. It slightly dried it out, yet made it feel clumpy, like it was coated w/ product and making the strands stick together. I actually use it now for a makeup brush shampoo, since it does a decent job of getting dirt off. Would not buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tehri from did not work for me The shampoo had a wonderful scent but that's all it had going for it. My hair felt dry and unmanageable after using the shampoo and conditioner. The cheap brands work better. For color treated hair I reccommend Infusium 23 shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner as well as styling products. Biolage hair serum works great too.
