Vidal Sassoon's Pro Series VS Color Shampoo & Conditioner Product Review

Hey All!

As far as hair goes, I haven't been up to much. Been rocking a slightly altered Wash n' Go Puff. I'll let you all know what I mean but slightly altered in a later post.  What I am here to tell you guys about now is Vidal Sasson's Pro Series VS Color Shampoo & Conditioner.

He is the father of Asymmetrical cuts. Has salons everywhere, has a documentary, the man is legend. Anyway, back to the review.

The VS Color Shampoo comes in a red bottle. The shampoo itself is a pearl white, and has a slightly thick consistency, think V05 or Suave, but just an smidget thicker. It has a perfumey scent. It lathers up wonderfully, but it is a Sulfate poo, so that is what it is suppose to do. After not washing my hair for more than a week, one wash left my strands feeling clean. I shampooed one more time just for good measure. Though my hair was still wet I did like how my hair felt clean, but not completely stripped. Also a whole bunch of my color wasn't washing down the drain, which is awesome, because that was something I was experiencing with V05 Moisture Milks.

Now you guys should know I'm not a shampoo girl, I'll wash my hair with just about anything, but this shampoo, seemed to like my hair, and my hair liked it back. It's filled with stuff I can't name, and though I'm new to color shampoo's, I'm sure is normal. The first ingredient is water, so that's pretty cool.  5/5 for the poo, that is for us colored girls! (That sounds horrible, but you guys know what I mean lol)

Just for those of you who are wondering, here's the ingredient list.

VS Color Shampoo 
 Water/EAU, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Glycol Disterate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Citrate, Cocamide Mea, Sodium Xylenefum, Dimethicone, Citric Acid, Polyquaternium-6, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.

Now on to the conditioner. It comes in a white bottle. It has the same coloring and consistency of the shampoo because of that you have to be generous when using. The scent is reminiscent of an inflatable plastic pool. Lol. It smells horrible!At least in my own opinion. If you can get past the plastic smell, the conditioner is amazing! It works just as well if not better than my beloved Suave Professionals Almond & Shea. It leaves my curls bouncy and moisturized, the only thing missing is a lovely scent, but the results are worth it.

I believe I got them on sale, but I think it is individually sold for $3.84 USD, at least at Rite Aid. Which is a more than reasonable price. I rate the conditioner 4/5 just because of the scent, or lack thereof.

The ingredients list goes as

VS Color Conditioner
Water/EAU, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearmidopropyl, Dimethylamine, Glutamic Acid, Nopropyl, Dimethicone Benozyl Alcohol, EDTA, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride Methylchloroisothiazolineone, Methylisothiazolione.

Overall, these products are great and work well with each other, or separately and are very easy on the products. I would like to explore other color protecting shampoo's and conditioners, but this one seems like it will be a staple.
