This shampoo is wonderful for mature hair as it's gentle without ever drying or stripping hair particularly since it's designed for mature hair. It contributes to shine and manageabilty. The shampoo is thicker in substance so a little goes a long way. I also recommend the shampoo be used with the Masque Substantif, also designed for mature hair. When used together you will have marvelously conditioned and better shine in the hair. Even without the use of styling products or blow drying, my hair has a beautiful shine since using these two products designed to be used together.
My hair is not only color treated, it's crazy wavy and "mature" which adds a whole new spectrum of problems. Bain Substantif was recommended to me and I have to admit, I was skeptical at first. Using it for just a few days made ALL the difference in the world on the texture and appearance of my hair. It's a miracle in a bottle.
