Paul Mitchell Ultimate Colour Repair Collection


Anyone with coloured hair will know how much of a pain it can be to stay on top of your colour and maintain a fresh-looking dye. I have been a bit of a hair dye addict for years now and the older I get, the more aware I am of the damage the chemical dyes actually do to your hair.

I find myself leaning towards products specially formulated for hair that has been dyed, so when I saw the Paul Mitchell Ultimate Colour Repair it was safe to say I was pretty intrigued by it all. One of the things that caught my eye was the fact that the products boasted 'quinoa' as on of it's key ingredients - something I'd never known was good for hair!



I got three of the products in the range; the Shampoo, the Conditioner and the Triple Rescue serum. To be honest, I have only used the shampoo and conditioner thoroughly enough to review as I still have a load of other serum type products that I'm working my way through so I'll be focusing on those for this blog post! The idea of the range is to restore lustre to the hair and reverse damage done through colouring. It does this with main ingredient quinoa, which apparently is amino acid rich and creates a protective shield around the hair. Sounds good so far!

The shampoo is quite thick and almost sticky in texture. I found it quite hard to run it through my hair which was annoying but I guess more of an inconvenience than a problem with the product. It doesn't really have a strong scent either, which I prefer as I have a sensitive scalp! Talk of sensitivity, the Ultimate Colour Repair Shampoo didn't irritate my scalp at all so it's quite gentle on your head. It does a good job of cleaning the hair without stripping your dyed hair colour off. I didn't see amazing differences, but I did notice that my colour didn't fade nearly as much as it does with my regular shampoo.

The conditioner is a thin, creamy consistency which took me by surprise. I guess it's more of a natural texture than the synthetic conditioners I'm used to? Anyway, it smelt really nice and did a nice job of giving my hair some everyday moisture. For my damaged and thick hair, I could have done with a little bit more conditioning, however, it wasn't a bad product, just not quite right for my hair.

I'm not sure whether this product did that much in terms of 'repairing' my hair. My hair is pretty damaged and in bad condition, so I can't expect miracles but after using the Ultimate Colour Repair collection I can't say my hair feels much better. Having said that, there was noticeable difference in the longevity of my hair colour. I usually have to dye my hair every 4 weeks (bad I know!), but with this I managed a whole 6 weeks! My colour faded much more gradually than usual so I was impressed by that. I don't think I'd buy this product again right now but if I got my hair in better condition, and was still colouring, I'd definitely give the Paul Mitchell Ultimate Colour Repair Collection another shot!
