Living Proof Restore Shampoo and Conditioner

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4.5 stars 

COST: $28 ($12 for 2-ounce travel size) 

THE SKINNY: I've bought a lot of shampoos and tried enough brands that I should be embarrassed. Living Proof is the best that I have seen in quite some time.

The Living Proof Restore shampoo and condition duo have made my hair look healthier and shinier than it has in ages. After use, you get the clean and fresh look that comes with using a stripping combo, but Living Proof works without stripping hair and does not contain sulfates -- detergents that can dry hair and take the luster away from color treatments.

The shampoo lathered nicely -- a must -- and both products rinsed clean. The smell was fresh but did not stick to my hair.

But the biggest bonus was the re-found healthiness my hair had. Even with color treatments, my hair was soft, shiny and looked great. My color seemed to hold better and there was no dryness (even in the winter) or flyaways.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: You can buy Living Proof online, plus they offer free shipping and samples with every order.
