We live in Arizona where the sun is very damaging as is the pool water. I also have dry, medium length curly hair that is color treated. I use all of the Malibu C Shampoos and Conditioners (Color Wellness, Swimmers Wellness and Hard Water Wellness) and love the scent, fresh and clean. Leaves my hair soft, not weighed down. I seem to use less conditioner than I used to have to, as well.
