Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Color Shampoo
I don’t understand what’s wrong with weather this year! I mean yes you can feel the chills in the evening and early mornings, but afternoons are not what Novembers are supposed to be. Few months back a friend of mine got me a nice olive trench coat from London and I don’t think I’ll get a chance to wear it this season, 🙁 but I’m being positive… May be on New Year. 🙂
Coming on to the review, I don’t color my hair frequently, just some streaks here and there, that’s it. Since I always get my hair color done from L’Oreal Salons, the post color protection I have used has always been their Vitamino Color Range. But this time since my hair color was nothing special just 4 streaks on the crown portion for some texture, I decided not to invest in the expensive L’Oreal shampoo, instead use the economical one which my mom uses for her global hair color. So let’s find out how did this one fare for me.
Price: INR 550 for 400 ml.
Packaging: All Schwarzkopf shampoo bottles have same shape except for their color. This one comes in a big 400 ml bright red colored plastic bottle with flip top cap. Since it’s a family sized bottle, it is definitely not travel friendly!
My Experience with Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Color Shampoo:
When it comes to shampoos, I have two basic demands which need to be fulfilled. One, it should clean my oily scalp without leaving any residue and secondly, it should add a bounce to my limp hair. And to my surprise, this one stands good in both the departments.
Color protect shampoos are usually quite moisturizing and this one is no exception. It does hydrates your chemically treated mane but in a good way. May be this is working, since it is winters now, but I doubt it’ll work on oily scalp during summers.
The shampoo lathers quite well (thanks to the big chemical list) and cleans my oily scalp in just one wash. The texture of the shampoo is quite creamy for my liking, but it keeps away oil from my scalp for 2 days. And that’s pretty okay for me. It smells wonderful, very fresh and stays on for a day or two unless I’m sweating out in the gym.
Talking about the protection part, my mom finds this equally good as the L’Oreal one in terms of retaining the color and providing hydration. Because she has used both of them for quite a long time now. However, since I don’t have a large part of color treated hair, I wont comment how much time it’ll retain my color, but yes it been a month I’ve been using it and my crown area is still shiny and vibrant.
Pros of Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Color Shampoo:
- It retains the hair color for an appropriate amount of time.
- Provides much needed hydration for the chemically treated hair without weighing them down.
- Provides shine and vibrancy to the hair color.
- Cleans the scalp well without leaving residue instead of being quite creamy and hydrating.
- Wonderful fragrance which lingers on for long.
Cons of Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Color Shampoo:
- The long list of chemicals.
- Not available easily, not even online.
- Wont work for oily scalp during summers.
- Big and bulky bottle.
Do I Recommend Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Color Shampoo?
If you’re looking out for an economical shampoo for your color treated hair, then surely do try it. Normal and dry hairs can use it all year along, but oily scalp will have to skip it during summers. Availability might be an issue but my father gets us Schwarzkopf products from some wholesale market in Nepal. 🙂 I think you can find these in stores which sell imported stuff.
Will I Re-purchase Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Color Shampoo Again?
I’m using this Color Protect shampoo twice a week for my sparingly colored hair. Rest of the days I stick to my staple Organix. I’ll use this one for this season, but not in summers.
