I tried Aveda Color Conserve Conditioner along with the Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo, and like the latter I had a terrible time with it. I have dyed red hair which is well known for having the color bleed out when you wash it, and some shampoos and conditioners cause more color 'bleed' out than others. Having the name 'color conserve' I thought it would help preserve my color and have it make my hair color last a longer time. This was sadly not the case. If your hair is not a bottle red, like say a platinum blonde, or it is bleached than you might have better luck with this conditioner than I did. It did however work as a good conditioner. It made my hair feel luxuriously soft and luscious. But for the price I could get a conditioner nearly as soft, and one that does not strip my hair of it's color. I would only recommend this protect to people who have dyed hair that is not known for bleeding otherwise just save your money.
