Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo

Formulated without parabens, our sulfate-free shampoo helps to effectively protect color-treated hair by gently cleansing hair without stripping its color. Infused with nutrient-enriched conditioning oils of Sunflower-known to contain powerful levels of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids – combined with Apricot, a fortifying blend of Vitamin B3, B5, and B6, and a UV-protective filter, our color-preserving shampoo conditions and moisturizes dry hair for long-lasting color in between salon visits. Utilizing a silicone-free formula which doesn’t weigh hair down, hair maintains its vibrancy with a smoother, more natural look and feel.

Ingredients:

A-prih-kaht KUR-nuhl OY-il
Apricot Kernel Oil is extracted from apricot kernels and has a very high Vitamin E content (aiding fast absorption) and is a trygliceride composed of 75% oleic acid and 20% linoleic acid, and unsaturated fatty acids esterified with glycerin – similar to avocado oil and sesame oil. Found to be highly compatible with the skin. Apricot Kernel Oil moisturizes and softens skin while helping retain clarity and suppleness.
SUN-flah’-wur OY-il
Sunflower Oil contains beneficial amounts of Phospholipids as well as high concentrations of Ceramides. Its strengthening and protective agents help to further nurture and condition dry or damaged skin. The resilient Sunflower extract is also known to care for sun-exposed and aging skin as a result of environmental aggression.

My review:

The shampoo at first is not easily lathered on my palms, well on the hair as well, if you’re a fan of abundant foam this shampoo will not meet your expectation. The scent is amazingly wonderful and like a sweet apricot, oh yes, it does exist in the ingredients \^0^/

Unlike other shampoo I’ve used even thou there’s not much lathering (there ARE but not much) it is indeed a best friend for a color treated hair which are tend to be more fragile and easily angry due to the dryness and lack of softness. Especially if you’ve been bleaching your hair down right to it’s core. Final word: The shampoo made my hair go with the flow.

Sunflower Color Preserving Conditioner

Utilizing a silicone-free formula which doesn’t weigh hair down, our gently, yet protective conditioner helps extend color vibrancy and deeply moisturizes and detangles hair, leaving it silky-smooth and shiny



My review:

The conditioner is indeed would be more acceptable in any level for it’s softness and everything we expected in a conditioner. Smoother, softer and far less tangle. The smell also lovely and as sweet as the shampoo, pay attention on the direction to leave it on for 3 minutes before rinsing. Comb a bit it will help with even distribution and avoid the scalp at all cost. Unlike the shampoo which works well with cleaning the scalp, conditioner will blocked the ‘pores’ of the scalp.

Rinse like usual and enjoy the immediate softness.
