Best known for their exemplary anti-aging skincare products, StriVectin now has an equally impressive line of haircare products to add to their repertoire. As expected, their foray into haircare resulted in products that are exceedingly effective, a joy to use, and affordable. They offer three lines: StriVectin Hair Color Treated Hair, StriVectin HAIR Max Volume and StriVectin Hair Ultimate Restore. I selected the line for color treated hair, and despite the fact that I don't always color my hair, I do periodically. Furthermore, having curly hair means that I need a gentle haircare line that won't dry out my tresses.

While I don't wash my hair daily, because it is naturally dry and curly, I could if I wanted to. This shampoo works very well for my hair because it gently removes all product build-up and leaves my hair soft and shiny.
