I recently had my hair highlighted and lowlighted, so I thought I would try out some color friendly products. Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo and Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner turned out to be quite nice products.
The shampoo has a very light lather and is moisturizing, so I didn't run into issues with tangling. With lavender and peppermint, it also smells quite nice. If you like a big thick lather though, this one doesn't give that.
The conditioner smells even better than the shampoo. The Aveda conditioner is medium body and does a pretty good job of detangling and leaving the hair soft and manageable. It also rinses clean quite well. I have no complaints on this one. I liked it quite a bit.
I haven't used these enough to give definitive results on how well they help preserve color,but my initial one week use of them has been good. Often, if I use a harsher shampoo, I will notice some fading of the color right away. So far I have noticed none with the Aveda products.
The Aveda color conserve products won an Allure Magazine reader's choice award. They are also priced fairly well for their quality. So I definitely recommend them as good value products.
