Review of Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo

Reader Review of the Day: Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo

Reader Nycbeauty9349 has been one reviewing machine! Her latest post focuses on color-enhancing shampoo, a great product to use to freshen up both natural and color-treated locks. What did she have to say about Clairol's Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo ($8.80)? Find out below:

This is my favorite toning shampoo. Every hair color — dyed, highlighted, or natural — fades and gets brassy from time-to-time. This is the only at-home product I've ever used (gloss, color-focused shampoo, etc.) that I've seen an actual result with. I usually lather up twice and let the second round sit for a few minutes while I tend to my other shower-related duties. When I dry my hair afterwards, it looks like I've gotten it freshly touched up at the salon. It's been my life saver as both a redhead and a blonde.

Do you have something you need to get off your chest? It's Product Review therapy time. Tell us what you do and don't like about beauty items you've tried, from hairspray to tweezers to blow-dryers, and perhaps you'll be featured on this daily post.

I'm assuming since this is the Clairol Professional line, I need to get this from a beauty supply store?

There is another brand of purple shampoo (an English brand) I found at my grocery store and it is MUCH less drying than Shimmerlights. A purple shampoo is a must for blondes!

Oh wait...I just saw that you used it when you were a redhead, and I dye my hair red sometimes. I'll have to keep this in mind!

I'm not a blonde, so I've never tried this, but I've heard that it's a fabulous shampoo.

i LOVE this stuff, it is really good for toning down brassiness in my blonde hair. a small WARNING for other blondes thinking of using it....i would recommend not using it more than 3 or 4 days in a row. then you need to stop and use a regular shampoo for a day or so. too many repeated uses all in a row and my blonde hair will almost verge on ash gray, lol.

This sounds nice and I'll keep it in mind if I ever need it. I only have a few highlights right now of blond so I'm good.

I just bought this in the Blonde/Silver color. I'm blonde and my hair sometimes gets brassy. I'm hopeful it will make a difference!
