Generally, I’m not a big fan of drugstore shampoo and conditioners unless they are from a salon brand because I don’t find that long term they work as effectively on your hair as salon shampoos and conditioners. I don’t mean to be a snob about this it is just my personal experience. I have long blond hair that I often highlight and/or lowlight a lighter or different colored blond (my own color is golden blond) a few times a year so I like a shampoo that will protect the color I’ve paid so much to put into my hair. I also have trouble, especially in Winter, of having hair that can get dried out so any shampoo and conditioner I use has to be moisturizing. I love Bedhead shampoo and conditioner either the Dumb blond line or the Damage Control line and they have been my go-to shampoo and conditioner for years.
Last time I was at Shopper’s Drug Mart I decided to try Nexxus Color Assure Shampoo and Conditioner. I had heard excellent things about the products but was a little concerned that at $15,99 for the conditioner and $11.99 for the shampoo, that they would not last as long as my 750 ml of Bedhead shampoo and conditioner which lasts about 3 months for a similar price. I was pleasantly surprised that both the shampoo and conditioner lasted 2 months despite being in smaller containers then the Bedhead duos.
It was also great shampoo and conditioner that left my hair feeling soft and silky after every use and I wash my hair almost everyday if I can. The shampoo left my hair feeling cleaned with no residue and the conditioner was extremely moisturizing. Also, my color, a lighter blond this summer, has been maintained well. So even though they are a drugstore brand I completely recommend Nexxus Color Assure Shampoo and Conditioner. I could not say the same for the accompanying hair products in the line that I was only able to try samples of those; however, the shampoo and conditioner are top of the line.
