How To Change Your Hair Color With Shampoo

Updated on October 20, 2008

Hey, a product that works!


Normally, I am not a sucker for products. I don't listen to commercials, and I don't believe what the advertisers tell me. On a general basis, I only buy non-necessary items if I have been thinking of them for at least a week (and since I got laid off, not at all).

I don't know what it was about Pantene Pro-V's Daily Color Enhancing Shampoo that caught me. Why did I listen to that particular marketing campaign? I am just their exact target audience, or was it much simpler, like how the shampoo in the bottle is kinda sparkly?

Whatever it was, I bought it. You can see from my profile pic that my hair is pretty darn dark. It's not black, not like (gorgeous) Asian hair, but it's about as dark brown as you can get. And there's not a lot I can do to it, short of bleaching it. I dyed it myself once, out of the box (ugh, that was an ordeal) but no one noticed. That was a few years ago. Then last year, I got it professionally died, but again, no one could tell. It's just too dark for any color change to actually show up.

So when I saw, or heard, or whatever exactly happened, about the color enhancing shampoo, I thought I would give it a shot. Most of these types of shampoos only work if you're trying to keep dyed hair its dyed color, but this one is for anyone. And it works! I couldn't believe it, but within just a couple of weeks, I could tell the difference. My hair was lighter, with highlights standing out more. There are now more golden tints than normal. I don't know if other people really notice, but I do, and I have to wash my hair anyway, and it's not that much more expensive than other shampoos, so why not? I like it. It works. What else do you need out of a product?

Ha! See that highlight!

      I love the Shielo Color Protect - both shampoo and conditioner - but it's usually way too expensive in the salon. Love that I can get a great price on it AND have free shipping ordering at their website online. Best shampoo I have used to preserve my color job.

      I highly recommend it if you spent a lot of money coloring your hair, and now want to keep that color as long as possible!
