Color Wow Pop and Lock Crystallite Shellac Review: Fab Product to Revive Dull Midlife Hair

Review by Ceri Wheeldon

One of the problems with post menopausal hair is the tendency for it to get drier and lose its shine. I  have tried lots of shampoos and conditioners with ‘anti-ageing’ properties – and to be honest to date I haven’t found one that appears to make a significant difference.

One product that does have a noticeable effect, however, is Color Wow’s Pop & Lock Crystalite Shellac.  Applied mid-length to the ends of the hair when wet, it seals the cuticle to trap colour and moisture. It also help to avoid prevent coloured hair from fading, and creates a fabulous shine when  the hair is dried.  It is light and not at all greasy.

I hadn’t realised quite what a difference it made until a friend’s 16 year old daughter commented on my hair – she asked what I had done to it for it to look so glossy,  in such good condition and blonder. Praise indeed!  The only difference was that I had used Color Wow Pop & Lock. I also find that my hair holds it style for longer  when I use it – I notice the difference on the occasions when I’m in a rush and forget.

According to Color Wow’s description of the product, 75% of the ingredients help to repair the hair, the other 25% forms a crystal clear protective seal – hence the shine.

Definitely one to add to midlife favourites!

Color Wow Pop and Lock costs £14


A friend of mine is a great fan of the Color Wow Root Cover which I previously reviewed
