I recently colored my hair brown for my friend’s wedding and this shampoo came free with the hair color box. I personally felt amazing about this offer and therefore grabbed it ASAP. Who wouldn’t like a shampoo free with hair color, I am no different. Let me know share my views on how this shampoo fared?
Loreal Paris Color Protect Shampoo Review
The shampoo comes in regular Loreal Paris signature plastic bottles with flip shut caps. The bottle is opaque red in color and looks appealing. It is spill-proof and can be a good travel companion.
The shampoo, however, has a more of runny consistency but it lathers very nicely and has a wonderfully charming fragrance which however didn’t last long. It vanished more quickly than anybody lotion would vanish into your skin.
Ingredients: Not mentioned on the cover
Directions to use:
Price and shelf life: I got it as a free sample but it costs Rs.128 for 175 ml of shampoo. It has a shelf life of 3 years.
My Experience Using The Loreal Paris Color Protect Shampoo
The shampoo has a very nice fragrance which makes your entire hair washing experience more fun. But sadly it doesn’t stay for long. The shampoo lathers quite well and removes oil in one go too. It helped in keeping my hair color intact. Its been 3 weeks and finally now my hair color has lightened. But that is the only good thing about this shampoo.
It makes my hair and scalp very dry. I literally got very itchy scalp because of it and had to incorporate acv rinse every time I wash my hair. It does not do anything to nourish colored hair nor does it help to keep frizziness at bay.
I personally feel if fading of hair color is your only concern then only go for this one otherwise you have too many options in the market.

Where To Buy Loreal Paris Color Protect Shampoo?
I got it free along with my hair color but its easily available in local stores as well as Amazon.
Yay or Nay?
Nope. I really don’t recommend this shampoo.
I mean apart from it protecting my hair color it reacted almost opposite of what it was supposed to do. Instead of nourishing my color treated hair it made it more dry and frizzy. Apart from its fragrance and color protecting ability this shampoo had no good qualities.
I would only recommend if protecting your hair color is your sole purpose of buying the shampoo then go ahead. I personally won’t be picking it up again.
