Great for Short Non-Colored Treated Hair

  • Dec 1, 2008

Pros: Great for shorter hair.

Cons: Not good for long or abused hair.

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this product for normal hair that is shoulder length or shorter and not color treated.

I had tried Pert Plus a few times when I was in my twenties but found that it did not meet the conditioning needs of my hair.  My hair was color treated (red) and reached down nearly to my waste.  My hair is very straight and a little on the fine side.  After washing with Pert Plus 2 in 1 my hair was not soft nor did it have a lot of shine to it.  In general, my hair has always been prone to tangles and the conditioning efforts of Pert Plus 2 in 1 went to waste. Although I chose not to use Pert Plus, my husband swore by it and would not use any other shampoo.

About a year ago, I did decide to cut my hair just above my shoulders as I now had a baby who loved to grabbed handfuls of hair.  I also had stopped color treating my hair.  As my time was now limited due to having a baby in the house, I would use my husband's shampoo because it was quicker to wash and condition my hair.  The first time I used it I was surprised at how well it worked on my hair.  As my hair is shorter it is less prone to tangles and drying out and Pert Plus 2 in 1 Medium Conditioning is now perfect for me. 
Pert Plus 2 in 1 comes in three levels of conditioning:  fine or oily, normal, and dry hair.  My husband needs only the formula for normal hair and I have found that this works great for me too.  I don't recall which formula I used the first time I tried this shampoo although it is likely I would have chose the dry hair formula due to the abuse I was inflicting on my hair.  If I grow my hair out again or begin color treating it again, I would probably switch to another brand.  Pert Plus 2 in 1 advertises that is is pH balanced and works great even on color treated or permed hair although my experience tells me that a different shampoo works better in this case.

I use about a silver dollar sized amount of shampoo and am always able to get a nice lather going.  It washes easily out of my hair and does not leave any residue behind.  My hair always feels soft and has a nice healthy shine to it.  I have not had any problems with split ends since I began using Pert Plus 2 in 1 Happy Medium.  I am easily able to run a comb through my hair after washing.  A nice fresh scent is left behind from the green colored shampoo.  The scent is appropriate for men or women.
To properly use Pert Plus 2 in 1, you must massage the shampoo onto wet hair and bring to a lather.  Once it has been rubbed throughout the hair and on the scalp, it is rinsed with water.  If desired, the process can be repeated.  This shampoo can be used on a daily basis.

This shampoo is available in a 13.5 ounce bottle or a 25.4 ounce bottle.  We prefer to use the larger bottle which runs us around $5.
