Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dry colored hair I'm 57 and my colored (not bleached) hair is feeling its age, i.e., drying out. This shampoo and conditioner combo leaves my hair soft, silky and hydrated. It's expensive, but I gotta have it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from left my hair dry After using Kiehl's superior skin care products, and being happy with the Smoothing Oil Infused Conditioner, I thought I'd give the Sunflower Color Preserving shampoo a try (I hoped it would work as it is less expensive than my usual Kerastase Bain Fluidealiste). I wasn't thrilled about it with the first use - even using it in the shower, my hair somehow felt rough against my fingers. I wasn't nuts about the smell of it either but decided to give it a real chance to see if it would be a good product for my hair. Over the next few weeks, my hair began to dry out, even though I hadn't switched any other part of my routine. I went to have my hair done this past weekend and the stylist commented that my hair seemed dry. Even my bangs feel a bit like straw, and I have them cut religiously every three weeks. I would sadly not recommend this product; this shampoo will be my first Kiehl's return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Lather This product made my hair feel soft. However, I have to use too much of it to create any kind of suds or lather on my thick, shoulder length hair. The fragrance is really nice. I probably won't be repurchasing due to the lather issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Shampoo Ever! This is probably one of the best shampoo I have ever used. Let me first say that it smells so good that you want to eat it. It's delicious. Smells like summer time apricots. Second, this makes my hair basically feel like it came back to life. It's hard to explain, but I can't stop wanting to touch my hair and I've got so many compliments that it's insane. I wish there was a liter size of this product - seriously!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Product I have been to heck and back trying to find a shampoo that works with my fickle, fickle hair. For the last four years I have been dyeing my hair red. I've tried everything from drugstore "color safe" products to higher end products like Bumble and Bumble and Living Proof. If it didn't make my ends like straw, it would make my scalp breakout into horrible dandruff, or make my color fade at a wallet damaging rate. I had finally settled on Bumble and Bumble, which worked, but the price and the effectiveness did not sit well with me. Fast forward to present day, I tried this shampoo on a whim. Mostly because it sounded like it smelled amazing (another problem I had with B&B). I'm so glad I did. Not only is it cheaper than B&B, it smells amazing (like Apricots), leaves my hair soft and shiny, and prolongs my red hair. Win, win, win! I have found my holy grail hair product! For reference I have dry, damaged, dyed red hair that is fine and prone to dandruff due to dry scalp issues. I wash my hair two to three times a week in cold water. I use Kiehl's Magic Elixir one to two times a week to combat the dry scalp I get from not washing my hair as often and the Kiehl's Sunflower Color Preserving Masque a couple times a week for my dry ends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight! I loved this product the first time I used it because my curly hair was softer, light, bouncy and very shiny. I have highlights and I don't have to worry about using this shampoo 3 times a week.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No suds I gave this product multiple try's but just never felt like it got my hair clean. I much prefer the amino acid products.
Date published: 2015-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results I've been using the Amino Acid shampoo for the past year and love that with the only qualification is that in the winter I need to use the conditioner as well or else my hair is a bit dry. The Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo leaves my somewhat dry hair with a great texture without using a conditioner. Now that we're into the summer months, I think I'll alternate between the two shampoos depending on the weather - I'll go with the Amino Acid shampoo on hot humid days and the Sunflower on all others. One caveat - the Sunflower Shampoo does not produce much in the way of suds - I need to use 50% more than I do of the Amino Acid one to get similar sudsing. I imagine I'll be going through it a bit quicker as a result but both last a long time - don't just look at the upfront cost - when you figure out the daily cost it's really insignificant to have nice hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome! This shampoo and pairing conditioner have worked wonders for me. Both hair and scalp feel great! I have fine straight highlighted long hair and every time I wash it with this shampoo and conditioner it feels even better! its Awesome and smells even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Sunflower Effect! I walked into my local mall with dead looking, dry and flat hair. I took a chance on Kiehl's Sunflower Shampoo and Conditioner, as I was desperate for my hair to regain it's body and shine. I saw remarkable results the very next day: my hair was shiny, soft, smooth and looked like healthy hair should. I highly recommend this product to anyone with colour treated hair, well worth the price. Smells lovely, lathers enough to get the job done and a little goes a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my hair after first use I used this product along with the sunfower conditioner. It has made a noticeable difference to my hair after one use. I have fine, highlighted hair and have a hard time balancing drynes/itchy scalp s and oiliness. This product improved the look and texture of my hair immediately and enhanced my highlights. It also smells great (apricot)! I almost never leave product reviews--but I was very impressed and my scalp feels much better after just one use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Shampoo for Color Treated Hair This shampoo washes out easily and smells really fresh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product! BUT... This shampoo smells amazing and cleans the hair very well. I usually dont like to condition the top of my scalp, but after i use this shampoo i have to. my hair feels a little rough after i rinse and hard to brush. Looks great when I blowdry it though

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great sulfate free shampoo! After going through MANY organic and other sulfate free shampoos, I've finally reached the one I will keep! The Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo smells great and makes my highlighted hair look fantastic. I have somewhat greasy hair (I can go two days between shampoos but have to use dry shampoo on the second day) and it didn't weigh my hair down at all. I'm not sure about the reviews that stated the shampoo didn't suds for them - I used a normal amount of shampoo and it suds great and thouroughly cleaned my hair. A fantastic buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I absolutely love this product. My hair is in much better shape since I started using this product. I would recommend this product to anyone who colors their hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Shampoo for color treated hair I use both the shampoo and conditioner and just love it. I have tried others, but found this really does wonders for my fine hair. I also like the mild scent, it's fresh and clean. Rinses really well and eliminates that static in the Winter months. A little goes a long way. Have been using it religiously for two years now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious smell! I love this shampoo and it is the only one I have used for the last couple years. Great for colored hair, leaves me soft and clean, and smells delicious! My only complaint is that it doesn't suds up very well, so if my hair is particularly dirty I have to use a lot to get it clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything i was looking for!!! i recently colored my hair and i scoured the internet trying to find a shampoo for color treated hair. i spent so much money on the process, so i wanted something that was going keep my tresses the honey blond that i set out for. the reviews online were mixed, but after reading the ingredients list, i felt it was worth a try. i brought the travel size so the investment was small i'm very happy with this product! one review i read was that the shampoo didn't suds. i didn't have that problem at all. i am a black women with curly kinky hair that is very moisturized before shampooing. as soon as i applied this shampoo it lathered up, in luke warm water mind you. It cleaned my hair very well. my color looked great as well. if you have any doubts, trust my review because i need a very moisturizing shampoo to keep not only my color supple, but the overall health of my hair in tact. thank you keihl's for this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff! I have dry, color-treated hair that easily becomes brittle, and quickly gets greasy after 2 days of not washing it. I tried this stuff, and I LOVE it! It lathers nicely (unlike some complaints I've seen), my hair feels super clean, nourished, and healthy - even 3 days after washing it! I pair it with the conditioner, and I've been very happy with it. I started with the smallest bottle just to try it out, and I went out and bought the biggest bottle with no regrets! I'm very happy with my Kiehl's experience so far. They just might have a new loyal customer! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to love this.... ...but I had to return both the shampoo and conditioner. I have color-treated hair and typically wash every other day. With the Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo I found myself needing to shampoo every day to get rid of that icky greasy hair feel. Some reviewers also mentioned the lack of lather and needing to use more product than they thought - I also had that same problem. I am a huge fan of many of the Kiehl's products so naturally I thought the shampoo would be terrific but alas, it wasn't to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shampoo! Ohhh! I love this shampoo! It works well especially when you use it with the conditioner. The first time that I used it one of my friends told me that my hair is so shiny that he wanted to touch it with his hands... Just to make sure it's real, I guess! Hahaha! Plus, the scent is soooooo good that my husband can't stop smelling it... I love Khiel's and one you start using their products, you won't stop!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me. My mother and I went into the Kiehl's store very excited to try their shampoo. She wanted a shampoo for moisture while I wanted one more for color. After buying the biggest bottle of this shampoo, it ended up being a waste. It does not clean the hair AT ALL. I would have to use a handful of shampoo just to do the top half of my long hair. Also, it leaves your hands smelling awful. The only positive thing about this shampoo for me was the way it smells in the bottle and the matching conditioner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's not to like? I just started using this shampoo & it is awesome! The fragrance is so fresh & light, it makes me look forward to washing my hair! As with most sulfate-free shampoos, this does not lather excessively. The first time I used it, I used quite a bit on my mid-length hair looking for it to lather up (never happened). The next time, I used a quarter-sized amount & it cleansed just as well, so a little goes a long way! I have fine, color-treated hair & this is seriously amazing at preserving the color and keeping my hair shiny, healthy & manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY FAVORITE! I color my hair every 4 - 6 weeks. This shampoo helps preserve my color and makes my hair so soft. It smells great and a little goes a long way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunny and bright at 5430 feet In order to keep my color bright and sunny in the dry climate of Colorado, I depend on Kiehl's Sunflower line to protect and moisturize my hair. It's the only product that really gives my hair that healthy look even after color treatments. Thanks to this product, I only need to actually see my stylist three times a year! Think of all that savings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightful Shampoo This is great shampoo! The scent is lovely and refreshing, and the formula does preserve color very well, and adds a beautiful shine and look of overall health! But a word of warning: a little bit goes a long way! So don't use a ton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Color Treated Hair It's a great line. Love the scent. It works well, while not making my blond hair brassy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lather... I had to make sure I ordered the right product after reading reviews stating this shampoo does not lather. Did I receive a fluke bottle...my shampoo lathers plenty. I absolutely love the scent.
