I love Nexxus products, but this is one of my favorites. It protects my hair and leaves it looking like I just left the saloon. It does exactly what its supposed to do. I highly recommend it and will continue to purchase it in the future. I'm very satisfied with this product.

I was not a fan of this shampoo if only for the smell. It was not a pleasant odor and it was very strong. Almost medicinal smelling. While blow drying my hair it’s all I smelled so i only used it a few times before discarding it.

I love this shampoo for my fine wavy hair as it helps keep it clean and fully of body and volume without being frizzy.  It is hydrating without weighing my hair down which is an important thing for me since my hair is fine. I would definitely buy it again and recommend others to use it as well.

Love this shampoo! My mom told me about it and one day when I was shopping at Walmart I seen some on sale and had to buy it. It made my hair feel so amazing and light. No build up, no breakage, dryness. I wish I could afford to get some more of it! Lol

I love all the Nexxus products, can't think of one that I don't like. The prices are always higher than I really want to pay but they are great products. they make my hair look and feel good as with a lot of high end produce. I would buy them again I just wish they were a bit more reasonably prices.

I didn’t like this shampoo much I felt like it made my hair hard and it made it tangle more and I didn’t like it for that reason plus it smells like those shampoos that they use in a hair saloon so it smells kinda like chemicals like it doesn’t have a nice smell

I like this product but I will probably not repurchase it. It smells nice and does a good job at cleaning my scalp, but I don’t particularly notice that it helps with frizz or humidity. I will most likely switch to a different line from Nexxus.

Received from influenster and i loved it! Left my hair smelling great smooth and tamed my frizz on an air drying day. Definitely recommend though the price is a little high running at $12 for each. Its worth it in my opinion

When the bottle said to "experience the rich foamy lather", I laughed. When I poured a bit of the crystal clear liquid in my hand to use in the shower, I felt the luxurious lather and sheepishly grinned. I could feel the thick and creamy lather coating my strands with love. My hair was clean, but didn't feel dry! Wheat protein and Indian Lotus seemed to effectively strengthen my hair. The scent is AMAZING just as with the rest of the collection. Sort of an herbal floral scent that I can't place, but it's not too overpowering to affect my allergies. In fact, I find that I want to use more just to smell it. Despite having combination hair (oily on top, dry on bottom), I've been apply to use without issues. My hair seems to love it and isn't greasy nor heavy which is an impressive result for my fine, wavy mane. The frizz and manageability improved even upon the first use. I do wish it was less expensive ($40 for the collection), but the results increase the value.

Is this line of hair care products OK for color treated hair?? I just went bright red and I don't want to mess up my hair.
