excuse me, could u please tell me if Pantene is a trustable brand?

I love the Shielo Color Protect - both shampoo and conditioner - but it's usually way too expensive in the salon. Love that I can get a great price on it AND have free shipping ordering at their website online. Best shampoo I have used to preserve my color job. I highly recommend it if you spent alot of money coloring your hair, and now want to keep that color as long as possible!

I am always looking for new hair products to try because I put my hair through a lot with the blow dryer and highlights and I want it to stay looking healthy. I used to ALWAYS use Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner because it did work great, until my fab hairstylist told me about Shielo Color Protect Conditioner. Shielo's Color Protect Conditioner which is not only a great conditioner for my hair, but really works at preserving my hair color. I add highlights to my hair a couple times a year just to keep a fresh look and make my hair look alive, but I hate when the color starts to fade. My hairstylist always loved Shielo, so when I tried this product I was pleasantly surprised at how great it worked and is now my go to conditioner. I used this conditioner after getting highlights and it really seemed to seal in my color and keep it looking vibrant longer. The conditioner seems to wake up my color when I use it and make it shine. I love that the lather is rich and creamy, but it doesn't make my hair feel heavy or greasy and rinses out easily. It adds a lot of softness and healthiness to my hair and smells great. This is a great conditioner to soften your hair and make your color shine.
