Pureology Essential Repair Shampoo & Hydrate Conditioner Review

9:00 am

For the past year I have been trying out a range of different sulphate free shampoos and conditioners to find the best one. In case you are unsure of what sulphate is, it is a chemical that is added to shampoos to make them lather up when applied, making you feel like the product is cleaning your hair. According to research, this chemical can actually damage your hair and most experts recommend buying sulphate free shampoos, especially if you are trying to get your hair into a better condition. 
I decided to try out the Pureology range as I had heard it was supposed to be really good. Because I have a shampoo and conditioner from two different Pureology ranges, I will be reviewing them separately. 

Pureology Essential Repair Shampoo
The essential repair shampoo is aimed at people with coloured hair. It claims to restore strength, stop colour from fading and restore the hairs natural shine. 

When I was using this shampoo, I noticed that the formula was very thick, so I only needed to apply a small amount. Although the brand claims this shampoo is sulphate free, it did lather up quite a lot, which I was surprised at and started to question whether it actually was sulphate free...

I did feel like my hair was nice and clean after using this shampoo, and my hair was nice and shiny once it had dried. However in terms of how healthy my hair was, it didn't seem to make an improvement, which I was disappointed about as that was the whole reason I bought the shampoo. 

Pureology Hydrate Conditioner
The hydrate conditioner is again aimed at coloured hair and claims to moisturise and hydrate dry hair. It has peppermint and corn mint essential oils in it, which makes it smell lovely. They also make your head feel slightly tingly. 

When I was trying both these products out, it was before I had had my hair cut short, so at the time it was really long. Because it was so long, I liked to use a good amount of conditioner to not only moisturise my hair, but to help detangle it too. 

After using this conditioner I found that my hair did feel smoother and softer, but it wasn't great at helping to detangle my hair, like other conditioners I have used. 

Overall I don't think I would bother buying the Pureology Essential Repair Shampoo and Hydrate Conditioner again, as I wasn't really impressed with the fact that it didn't improve the condition of my hair, which was the whole reason I bought this brand of shampoo and conditioner. I'm also not 100% convinced that it is actually sulphate free as it lathered up loads. However if you would like to try it for yourself, you can buy them from Look Fantastic. The shampoo is £10.90 and the conditioner is £14.10.

Have you tried any Pureology products before?
