Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Shampoo Review & Swatch-
If you guys know me over the years, I love changing up my hair & skin care a lot. I mean, a lot 😀 What is a blogger’s life all about then without trying? Nah, I have commitment issues towards beauty products 😛 But, but, there are a few things I would repurchase (and in this case, I already have) without batting an eyelid. Take for example, today’s Pureology shampoo ^_^ I already have a backup without finishing up this bottle. If that is not commitment, I dont know what is 😀
What Pureology Says-
Gently cleanse dry or coloured hair (without stripping strands) with this sulphate-free, concentrated moisturising shampoo. Infusing thirsty locks with essential hydration, it revitalises hair and enhances colour radiance with conditioning jojoba and green tea, while also strengthening with multi-weight proteins of soy, oat and wheat. Like all of Pureology’s luscious formulas, this shampoo is 100% vegan and scented with a signature aromatherapy blend (containing ylang ylang and bergamot) to soothe scalp and senses.
Some shampoos can strip hair of delicate oils and colour – but Pureology’s Hydrate Shampoo does the opposite, infusing thirsty strands with intense hydration while gently cleansing. Completely sulphate-free, this concentrated, moisturising shampoo is perfect for use on dry and coloured hair, cleansing with a rich lather that refreshes without stripping. Advanced hydrating micro-emulsion technology revitalises dryness and enhances colour radiance, while jojoba, sage and green tea condition. Multi-weight proteins of soy, oat and wheat help to strengthen, rebuild and repair damaged locks and Pureology’s exclusive AntiFade Complex protects colour vibrancy. 100% vegan, the formula is naturally luscious, soothing both scalp and senses with a signature aromatherapy blend of ylang ylang, bergamot and patchouli. A fail-safe favourite that you won’t want to wash your hair without.

My take on the Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Shampoo-
The shampoo comes in a sturdy lilac plastic bottle with a purple flip-top cap which is leak-proof since I have traveled with it & never had any issues. Packaging is both easy to use & carry 🙂
The shampoo is pearly lilac with a medium thick texture & I need just a tiny blob for it to lather up on my greasy, oiled hair ( though it doesn’t contain sulphates). However, it does clean my hair & scalp completely of all dirt & oil & my hair never feels dry at ll though I always follow it up with its matching conditioner.
After my hair dried, my hair looked soft & bouncy & not at all dry so yay! I did notice some extra volume in my otherwise very fine & flat hair as well 😀 My frizz was very much under much control too. The shampoo ensured my hair remained voluminous till the next wash & caused no extra hair fall or build up on my sensitive scalp.
Pureology caters mainly to the maintenance of colored hair & here too, they do no wrong & I feel my red colored hair is lasting longer & staying vibrant yet hydrated.
The fragrance of the shampoo is a very subtle yet luxurious spa-like one of essential oils but it is mild enough & fades within minutes.
Pros of the Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Shampoo:
1> Sturdy, user & travel friendly bottle packaging.
2> Cleans oily hair & scalp very well.
3> Does increase hair volume noticeably.
4> Contains no sulphates or harmful chemicals.
5> Did not irritate my scalp or cause extra hair fall.
6> Lovely essential oil fragrance which calms & relaxes.
7> Kept my colored hair hydrated & vibrant <3
Cons of the Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Shampoo:
Unavailability in India :'( *what am I going to do!!??*
Swatch of the Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Shampoo-
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Shampoo?
Pureology Hydrate Colour Care Shampoo has been one of my greatest hair finds ever- so much so that I already have a backup & plan to purchase the litre sizes when I go back to India! It is a lovely, sulphate free shampoo which keeps my colored hair soft, hydrated & vibrant while keeping my sensitive scalp soothed. A sure-shit winner for me & highly recommended!
