Red dye is hard to keep in the hair, and I don't know if this product really helped. My color washed out almost as quickly as usual. I didn't notice a difference with the color, but the conditioner left my hair really soft. And both the shampoo and conditioner smelled nice. It's a great value. Usually stuff that leaves my hair soft costs over $10 per bottle.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I decided to try this brand instead of what I normally buy because of the Buy2-Get2 sale. The shampoo really cleans well and smells great! I have bright red streaks mixed in among my natural dark brown hair. This was supposed to make my red not fade as fast. It failed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
