Clairol Professional Care & Styling Collection Review & Giveaway!

Clairol recently introduced a new hair care line, and I've got a review and giveaway for you! One lucky winner will receive all 9 full-size Care and Styling products, valued at $100 from this line, which includes a nice range for a variety of hair types.

Clairol Professional has debuted their Care and Styling Collection featuring PRO4PLEX: Pro Technology, Pro Grade, Pro Results, and Pro Heritage, to provide color safe professional products at an affordable price. Clairol Pro’s launch is comprised of three Care collections: Repair, Smooth and Curl, and two Styling products: Volume Mousse and Shaping Gel. Clairol Pro’s customized Radialux™ technology targets areas where extra care is needed for luminous shine from roots to ends.

There are three categories of hair types that the products target:

REPAIR: Ideal for dry, damaged hair. Helps smooth to repair and condition dry, damaged hair and replenishes moisture to leave hair strong and conditioned with incredible shine. Includes shampoo, rinse-out conditioner, and leave-in conditioner.

SMOOTH: Ideal for frizzy hair. Fights frizz and sleeks hair even after one application and leaves it shiny and smooth. Includes shampoo and leave-in balm.

CURL: Ideal for naturally curly hair. Gives curls amazing shine and definition. Includes shampoo and leave-in conditioner.

In addition to the shampoos and conditioning products, there are also two styling products available:

VOLUME MOUSSE: Provides extra strong hold, giving fullness and body for all day volume.

SHAPING GEL: Holds, defines and accentuates any style, while washing out easily.

The chart below gives you a better idea of the products and their uses:

I've been rotating usage of the entire line, and have been very happy with the results. The Repair line (pictured below) works best for my hair, which for reference, is very fine and highlighted. I blow dry it daily and flat iron it, so it needs moisture without weighing it down. This set of products gives me more shine and fullness than I'd been getting using the Wella Brilliance line. It definitely looks healthier, and that makes me very happy! Leave-in conditioners are often too heavy for my hair type, but this one works very well and doesn't weigh my hair down at all. All of the Clairol products are color safe.

You can find these products in a number of beauty supply stores, and there is a store locator on Clairol Professional's web site. Sally Beauty happens to have them on sale through the end of September, both online and in-store according to an eMail I received from them last week. Each product is priced at $10.49, and they're on sale buy one/get one free, so that's a fantastic savings. The code for Sally Beauty if you're ordering online is 444271.


Torsten Witte, Hair Stylist: Torsten’s work spans celebrity hair styling, editorial shoots, concert stages, movie sets and advertising campaigns. He has earned a long list of A-list clientele and his work frequently appears in top-tier publications.

Kiyah Wright, Colorist: Kiyah works with artists in the film, TV and music industry such as Ciara, Jennifer Hudson and Gabrielle Union. Kiyah’s work can be seen in top fashion magazines and is frequently featured on-camera on hit television shows. When not on-set, Kiyah works with a loyal client base at the Warren-Tricomi Salon in Los Angeles.

  8. I didn't know they had these hair products, I will see if my Sally's has them, I really want to try! And I hope I win! :)
    My biggest hair issue is getting volume. My hair is naturally straight and doesn't hold heat styling very well. It gets heavy and loses a lot of volume at the scalp. I've been using root lifting sprays but I'm always open to trying new remedies for flat hair :)

  11. My biggest concern is enhancing curl while controlling frizz



  12. I don't like how my hair naturally lightens. I want to keep my naturally dark hair as dark as possible.

  13. I have really thick hair and when I am washing it a ton just comes out in my hand it is bad, is there a way that not so much comes out. I am not losing any hair because its so thick but it does become troublesome when its everywhere.

  14. Thanks for sharing the information about the product.Would like to use them sometime !!!

  15. I have wavy/frizzy hair that I highlight, straighten with a blow dryer and then flat iron. My biggest concern is getting the right products to moisturize but also get rid of frizz. Moisturizing conditioners don't get rid of frizz and frizz products leave my hair dirty and limp. Volumizing products are great but leave my hair dry. What do I use?

  16. How to get and keep volume! My hair is fine and goes flat and limp within 15 minutes of styling and it drives me nuts. Ive tried so many products and methods but nothing really works very well.


  17. My biggest hair concern is I have very dry, split ends and an oily scalp.
