I received this in a gift bag from someone. I color my hair often so I was excited to try it out. The pro, and it is a big one, is that it definitely protects your color. I have washed my hair 5 times with it now and have had minimal fading. But there are a few cons... the shampoo doesn't lather up well, and it is pretty difficult to rinse out OR it just feels like it hasn't completely rinsed out so you end up rinsing and rinsing for a few minutes. Another con is that the bottles are pretty slim/small for the price you pay for both the shampoo & conditioner. The conditioner is great, though. It smells nice, has a mild honey and floral scent.
