Questions & Answers for Living Proof Full Shampoo

Question
Will this fade color treated hair (specifically dark brown)?
I have a very rich dark brown color and I'm always trying to avoid fading. I know most volume shampoos strip to some degree, but some are worse than others. Anyone know if this is an offender?

The product labeling indicates it is sulfate free and safe for hair that has color, however every person is different. Maybe small sample that you can test on a portion of your hair to see if any color is removed would be the best way to go.

I am a brunette who enhances her hair with color and have found that Living Proof does not strip the color and states it is safe for color treated hair (as its sulfate free). If you are super concerned about lightening, might I recommend a shower head filter? You can get one at a major hardware store (the big ones) and it installs pretty easily. I live in a city with very chlorinated water and this has helped keep my color bright.

I have to color my hair as my roots are becoming gray, and the rest of my hair (red) has been "fading" as I've gone through "the change". I have found all the LIving Proof products to be very gentle with my hair, and it doesn't appear to strip or "oxidize" my red hair. I imagine that a rich brown color would be pretty much the same. The major offender, is the SUN! I like to cover my hair with a hat or baseball cap when I'm at the beach or somewhere the sun is intense.

I think the trick is to get a product that specifically won't fade your color. I don't think this shampoo keeps the color any more than any other shampoo for color treated hair. If you really want something to keep your color, I would recommend pureology.

Yes, the shampoo is sulfate -free which I guess is the main culprit in stripping hair color. I have tried many shampoos and many of them strip color within a week of use! This does not. My hair color lasts a little closer to the recommended touch-up time of 4 - 6 weeks.

I can't say for sure, but I would recommend purchasing the travel sizes and try alternating you use of your dandruff shampoo with this product. My scalp is very easily irritated, but the Living Proof products have not caused me any scalp irritation whatsoever. My scalp is oily and gets little itchy spots, but both issues have gone away since I've started using it.

I just posted my comments on the shampoo and the rest of the Full line. I wouldn't recommend using it if you already have dry scalp. I have used it for a week (with no prior issues with dry scalp), and now I have huge flakes and a dry, itchy scalp. If you decide to use it, I would use it a few times a week and go from there.

If you have fine DRY hair don't buy this. I would try another shampoo for fine hair. WEN Lavender cleansing or COLURE for chemically treated hair. I have a lot of fine hair. never really looks dull or flat, but this shampoo dried my hair out.

You might have dry scalp. The skin on your head is like your face. If your not using a quality healing conditioner because you have limp hair and your afraid to weigh it down-you need to treat it. I would try using this shampoo and conditioner-with a scalp treatment. This does not way your hair down and it's full of quality.

I don't believe it will help with dandruff, but you could try interspersing. I felt the product made my fine hair flyaway, but not flat at least. I bought the conditioner too. Did not feel it did enough to help with tangles.

For hair loss what you should focus on is making what you've got as thick as possible and this shampoo along with the entire line of full products will really help make your hair look healthy and full. The product that I would especially recommend if you had to just choose one is the living proof root lifting spray. If you spray that around the areas where you are losing hair it will take the existing thin hair strands and really double or triple the thickness of each strand compensating for the hair you've lost. Blow dry your hair and style as usual with added back combing and you should be good to go! As far as slowing down hair loss, something you should take is zinc, around 2 a day, it will really help especially if one of the causes to your hair loss is stress.
