I am always iffy about buying 2 in 1 products because they never seem to be effective for my dry damaged hair. They don't moisturize my hair enough. The Clairol Herbal Essences Color Me Happy 2 in 1 Shampoo + Conditioner is actually pretty good though! I am naturally a redhead but dye my hair darker shades of red. Red hair color is known for fading quickly because the red pigment doesn't stick to hair, so I am always trying products that claim to extend my hair color. Like usual the Herbal Essence shampoo + conditioner smells GREAT. It makes your hair smell good all day. Unlike other shampoo and conditioner combo's this one actually makes my dry damaged hair fairly manageable when I am styling my hair. It's not as good as when I use a separate shampoo and conditioner but it's better than the other 2 in 1's I've tried. I did notice that my hair color lasted a little longer than usual, but not a significant amount of time. I recommend giving this product a try at least. It's low priced so if it doesn't work for you you won't be out much money.
