The next on the list is the Joico K Pak Color Therapy Shampoo. This is a good shampoo for taking care of color-treated hair. It is enriched with Keratin Peptide, which helps in rejuvenating hair color.

The Joico shampoo has a banana taffy scent while the Biolage shampoo has a floral scent with hints of rosemary.


Generally, when you’re buying shampoos, you aren’t paying a lot of money. At most, you’ll pay fifty dollars for an expensive shampoo.

When looking at different shampoos from Joico, they’re not quite expensive compared to other brands like Heads and Shoulders.

Ultimately, you can only decide how much you’re willing to pay so it’s important to look through the different items on offer until you have one that suits you.

In comparing both Matrix and Joico, I’ll say you pay a premium for Matrix. Most of their hair care shampoos and treatment line are quite expensive, compared to Joico. If you’re put off by this, your best choice is Joico.

But, you can still look at some of the different brands since you might get what you want from Matrix and not Joico.
