Today was my first time to experience your Malibu C Crystal Gel Normalizer treatment before having my hair colored. I can attest that my results are superior to having had my hair colored without this treatment. My color appears more vibrant and the feel and texture of my hair is noticeably smoother and has a "spring" to it. I plan on having this Malibu treatment before every color service from now on. So glad I was introduced to this product!
