It's always a bit tough when you have oily but color treated hair. You want clean but not stripping and you don't want super moisture either. I am lucky to have strong hair and the highlights may dry it a bit, but for me thats good.
Whenever someone sees my hair and then recommends shampoo it's always replenishing something or other with tons of oils. I can't use them, highlights or not. I do like shampoos that promote color rentention too, though. When I use a good one that takes care of hair and color, it's a big difference.
So I was happy to see this new Biolage Scalptherapie Cooling Mint Shampoo and conditioner for normal to oily hair , that really cleans the hair and is color safe.
After using it I was amazed. My hair felt so light and had more lift than it had in ages. As much as I was liking the scalp treating and color retaining shampoos I was using, I had no idea how much they were weighing my hair down.
The shampoo is also cooling just like it says with a good dose of peppermint. In the summer that will be welcome.
Scalptherapie is awesome, thats all I can say. It gets the hair and scalp clean, doesn't strip, and leaves it clean for days. You can get longer between washes and if you need a touch up there is separate product Oil Control Treatment to help mop up. My hair tends to get oily before my scalp( weird, I know) so that didn't work as well for me as others. I know that Kristen from Beauty Addict had great luck with this, per her post a bit back.
