In September, I got my hair colored to a darker blonde and bought a new color protecting shampoo (Paul Mitchell’s Color Protect Daily Shampoo). Ever since, my hair has been incredibly dry and brittle ..and pretty unruly.
I thought this was because of the coloring, so I decided to do a couple hair repair treatments. They didn’t help ..my hair continued to be very straw like. It was frustrating.
I ran out of the Paul Mitchell shampoo and bought a new one earlier this week (Infusium 23 Color Defender), and TA DA! My hair is so much smoother and softer. It looks so much healthier. I read some reviews on the Paul Mitchell Color Protect shampoo, and many people complained of the same issues when using it.
I guess I need to do more homework in this area. I never thought a brand like Paul Mitchell could produce a shampoo as damaging as the one I was using. But then again, everyone’s hair is different and maybe it works great for other people. I’m just glad I figured it out!
PS – I will say the Paul Mitchell shampoo did do a good job of protecting my color from fading!
