I’m a fan of pretty much all things Pureology. I know their stuff seems to be ridiculously expensive, but I really think you get what you pay for in terms of quality and longevity. That’s why, when Pureology came out with their Colour Fanatic Treatment that boasts of 21 benefits for the hair, I immediately went to buy the first bottle I could find.
At first I was kind of confused about what exactly this product is supposed to do, but after doing a bit of research and thoroughly reading the back of the bottle, I managed to figure out all supposed 21 benefits of this product. From what I understand, they’re grouped into three categories – prime, protect, and perfect:
- Hair Color Protection
- Leave In Conditioner
- Hair Detangler Spray
- Blow Dry Spray for Quick Drying
- Moisturizer for Dry Hair
- Low Porosity Hair Care
- Weightless Conditioner
- Hair Cutting Lotion
- Split End Treatment & Prevention
- Hair Breakage Treatment from Daily Brushing & Combing
- Hair Fiber Product
- Repair and Protect Heat Damaged Hair
- Shields Hair Against Environmental Damage
- Hair Smoothing Treatment
- Silky Hair Treatment
- Seals Hair Cuticle
- Hair Moisturizer Spray for Reduced Dryness
- Anti Frizz Hair Spray
- Reduces Hair Static
- Hair Refresher Spray for Restyling
- Hair Shine Treatment
Basically, those are all just 21 fancy ways of saying the same few things, but that doesn’t even bother me because this stuff is awesome! I’ve used it both as a leave-in on damp hair and as a refresher on dry hair, and the results are phenomenal each time. No matter when I apply it, my hair is left with a healthy, glowing shine that isn’t at all the result of greasiness from being weighed down, and the smell is intoxicating in the best way imaginable. If it were a fragrance on its own, I would snatch it up in a heartbeat.
As far as priming goes, this does work wonders in reducing drying time and eliminates tangles effortlessly. The protection aspect is equally impressive, and I can really tell a difference between when I use this before heat styling as opposed to when I don’t. Perfect is also an aptly named category for this product, because it really does make your hair look perfect. Only 2 or 3 spritzes over the entirety of my hair and I’m left with shiny, rejuvenated, silky smooth hair that just begs to be touched (seriously, I’ve had people I’ve never met before ask me what I use on my hair and ask to touch it on days when I use this).
This stuff usually retails for like $24 for a full size and $9 for a travel size, but I’ve found it on Amazon for less than $13 and I would gladly pay triple the price if I were forced to, that’s how much I love this product. I just repurchased after 4 months of using the full size every day, and I’m expecting to get another 4 or 5 months out of the one I just bought as well. It’s a serious bang for your buck, and seriously worth the money.
I’ve also noticed that there seems to be an accompanying dry shampoo and conditioner from the Colour Fanatic/Fresh Approach series, and I can’t wait to get my hands on those as well.
Way to go Pureology, five out of five stars!
