There have been many reviews of Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, but I wanted to test it for myself to find out if it is worth the money. Most reviews so far that I have read have been glowing with positivity. One would think this would be enough to convince me to spend a pretty penny on them, but with a lack of negative reviews, I was skeptical if they were honest.
As everyone knows, finding a great shampoo and conditioner for any type of hair can be exceptionally difficult. I wanted to find one that I can rely on wash after wash to continually do what it claims to do. I no longer wanted the hassle of using one type of shampoo and conditioner for a few washes and it stops working the way it did in the beginning. Then, shopping again for a different shampoo and conditioner that hopefully works just as well with my hair.
If you are like me, you spent plenty of your hard-earned money on your hair color. You want the color to last as long as possible, not fade away quickly due to low-quality shampoo and conditioner. Making trips to the salon sooner than we should for another treatment is not something anyone want to do. So, with reviewing these I took color fading into consideration as well. (We all want to save time as well as money, don’t we?) Using the right products can help make that happen.
I searched around many stores on the internet to find the best deal, considering Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner can be somewhat costly. I didn’t want to dump a ton of money on something I never used, and I was not positive it would stand up to my high expectations. After finding a fair deal for two 8.5 oz. on Amazon, I made the purchase.
How It’s Described
Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner is described as having the ability to cleanse the hair gently without color stripping (which is great for all of us with pricey coloring treatments). Hair is hydrated well while the color is retendered, leaving hair nourished, vibrant, and healthy.
What’s in it?
One of the best features of this product is the ZeroSulfate formula. This allows hair to be rinsed thoroughly and effectively, removing all dirt, soap suds, and filth. There are many essential oils in this shampoo and conditioner. Some of these include corn, sugar extracts, and coconut oil. Also, with green tea added to this mixture, it helps to leave hair moisturized, hydrated and feeling thick. The ingredients also include Aloe Vera, Sandalwood, rose extract, and sunflower seed extract. Anise, Bergamot, Patchouli, and Ylang Ylang give it an aromatherapy blend. Most of the ingredients are all natural.
The formulation of this wonderful product includes Antifade Complex; allowing the prolonged color to your hair by preserving the color treatment effects.
Are There Benefits?
Being a ZeroSulfate shampoo and conditioner, Pureology Hydrate has many benefits. These products give your hair more shine than ones containing sulfate.
Another benefit you will notice almost immediately, there is less hair loss while washing compared to most other shampoos on the market.
One benefit I love due to my frizzy hair, there is considerably less or no frizz at all when I used these. If you have hair with frizz, you understand how important this is to us.
Of course, as I mentioned before, color last longer and this is due to no sulfates. Men and women who have their hair colored professionally or DYI will come to appreciate this benefit most of all.
Sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner provide your hair with more strength. Natural oils keep your hair fortified and healthy.
When hair is color-treated, it tends to become dry and lifeless. However, with the use of Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, color-treated hair can maintain the correct amount of moisture. This ensures hair remains bouncy, fuller, and radiant giving it the manageability you need.
Thanks to being all natural with no chemicals, people with delicate scalps will adore the fact that there is no irritation. This makes for a comfortable and thorough wash.
Only a small amount is needed to receive an efficient amount of lather with each wash. Small bottles of shampoo and conditioner can last a month or more, unlike ones purchased in a salon.
Any Bad Things?
There are only a few cons I found with these products. For people with thicker hair, you might have a heavy feeling. Try an extra rinse to help resolve this issue if you experience this.
If too much of the product is used, your hair may feel greasy. Only a small amount is needed of both the shampoo and conditioner. If you still have this issue when using a smaller amount, try an extra rinse as well.
These products are used in the same way as other shampoos and conditioners available on the market. Begin by thoroughly wetting your hair with water. Next, add a small amount of shampoo to the palm of your hand and work into hair. Bring hair to a full thick lather. Now, completely work the shampoo throughout your hair as well as your scalp. You want to keep the product in your hair for five minutes prior to rinsing thoroughly.
This shampoo is safe to use daily. For best results, do not use alternative conditioners.
Overall, What I Feel About it
I found the purple color of this shampoo to be fun and the fragrance to be exhilarating. The fragrance wasn’t too much and made my hair smell extremely incredible. I must admit; I was surprised that the fragrance lasted all day. After use, my hair felt smooth but not with a greasy feel.
After using this shampoo and conditioner for a few washes, my hair had more body and shine. The frizz my hair usually had seemed to disappear. I loved the soft touch of it and would find myself with my fingers going through my hair several times a day just for the smooth feel. Unlike other shampoos where my color would fade quickly (even ones I purchased in a salon), Pureology didn’t touch my color as fast.
After several weeks of use, I found Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner to be a very high-quality, effective hair care premium products. I think they are well worth the money and I would recommend them to everyone, especially ones with their hair colored to ensure long lasting color effects. I will definitely keep these products on my repeat buying list.
