I’m having the hardest time finding a shampoo/conditioner!
I’m looking for a product for color-treated hair that also does smoothing/glossing/frizz-control and/or moisture.
I currently am using the L’oreal Ever Pure line and while I like it, it’s stripping my color sooner than other products and I want to switch it up (I’m using the Ever Moisture/Ever Smooth – both for color treated hair).
I’m looking at Keratase Nutritive Bain Oleo Relax (not for color treated), Redkin Smooth Down (also not for color treated)… i haven’t tried either, but would really love a color-treated option!
Are there any shampoo/conditioner experts in the hive who can point me in a possible direction!

Subsrcibing! I have been looking for YEARS for a shampoo that is for color treated hair and moisturizes.
Right now I use the Redken line. I use their color treated shampoo, and the moisturizing conditioner. Ive used Kerastase products in the past, but they got to be too explensive for me.

I like Nexxus. Iv’e used Redkin, Keratase, Loreal, Biolage, etc. Nexxus is the only line that actually smooths my hair – and it’s perfectly fine on color-treated. They even have a line called “Assure” for those with highlights or color. I use the split end treatment shampoo and the humectress conditioner. And it’s not bad, price-wise.

I use a line called acure from whole foods and I love it! It is very moisturizing and smells amazing, plus doesn’t have a lot of the chemicals typical of personal care products that are really not safe. I highly recommend!

@Bostongrl25: between the Redken and Keratase – how would you rate the smell and overall product? Would you be using Keratase, if the price was the same? I’m also curious which Keratase you used – there are so many, I’m beyond confused!

Sebastian Drench is by far the best moisturizing shampoo/conditioner I have ever used. It is colour safe, leaves hair super shiny, smooth, frizz free and is nice and light weight but not staticy.
Another great option would be S Factor by Tigi. The smell is to die for, and also colour safe and very moisturizing.

Biolage. Works every time.
ETA a lot of hairdressers also recommend Joico, but I don’t like them. I usually only use their detangler.

@oracle: I found Kerastase confusing too. If you sign up for their email alerts, they occasionally have promotions where if you spend $x you get to choose 3 free samples. It was a good way to try some products out. My old hiardresser gave me some free samples a while back, and thats how I got hooked.
I used the Bain Chroma (pink bottle) for shampoo and the Bain Nutri (white/orange bottle) for the conditioner. I also have the Oleo Relax which I sometimes use in the summer when the humidity makes me hair extra frizzy. It works ok, but makes me very fine hair a bit too oily. It probably would work better on thicker hair.
I personally like the Redken line better. Both lines smell nice but for the price I didn’t think Kerastase was worth it. It was also a pain in the butt to buy because I could only find it online, and occasionally a few things at the salon. Not sure if you have an Ulta near you, but they have a great selection of Redken products. I bought a few of the small bottles to try out, and they also have great sales once in a while.

It’s pretty pricey, but I love the Pureology brand. I don’t have color treated hair, but it is chemically treated and the deep conditioner works wonders. I use the Hydrate line that is made for color treated hair

@bellaluna290: Seconding Pureology.
All Pureology products are made for color-treated hair. Hydrate is great, but Super Smooth or Precious Oil might be better for you.

I love using moroccan oil after I get out of the shower to help moisturize/smooth my hair. It doesn’t leave it greasy either which is great. I also use a “wen” type cleansing conditioner about once or twice a month, and it leaves my hair really soft!
