The duo has been formulated to slow the fading process of coloured hair, whilst providing shine which can be lacking when hair is in need of colour maintenance.
The scent is the same for both shampoo and conditioner, and this could be a problem for some because it is rather strong. I actually adore it, I would love this fragrance in a moisturiser, body mist or even perfume.
I found that not only did the shampoo lather easily, it also washed out with ease. Even with a coconut oil treatment in my hair, I needed only to wash once, no need to repeat the process.
Now in my initial review, I didn't think that I required a toning shampoo, but after a few uses, I did find that my blonde hair was becoming brassy. Not a huge problem, as I've found that even with the most expensive shampoos I need to use a toner.
The conditioner has great slip, making application a breeze. Coating my dry, damaged hair is easy, without the need for an excessive amount.
Would I repurchase? Yes! The shampoo is a perfect start in my haircare routine. Cleansing my hair, without feeling like it has been stripped, not something you want, especially for highlighted hair. My personal experience with the conditioner gave me manageable, soft, shiny hair. The range I had been using, I will continue to do so, but their products I can only access online. Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime shampoo and conditioner are easily found in the supermarket, and are a lot cheaper. When I forget, I can conveniently repurchase from this range.
