L'Anza Healing Color Care Color-Preserving Conditioner is my favorite conditioner at the moment. My hair is fine, but naturally somewhat curly, which means that a bit of dryness comes with the package... And it's colored, obviously.
This conditioner for colored hair beats the moisturizing conditioner (L'Anza Healing Moisture Kukui Nut Conditioner) from the same hair care line. This one feels more moisturizing and conditioning, and it does a better job at detangling also. It makes my hair look and feel healthier and it gives a good shine. The smell is really nice too, and the scent does linger in your hair for sometime, which I really like. I usually wash my hair in the evening and with most conditioners the nice smell is gone by the morning. Not with this one.
You also don't need to leave this in for a long time. A minute or so will do just fine. Or even less.
When it comes to protecting the color, it does an ok job, but it's not a miracle product. And that is what you'd actually need - a miracle - to make my color stay very intense for very long. Because my hair is quite porous and exposed to uv light everyday (my jobs includes having to be outside), the color always fades somewhat, no matter what products I use. And I've tried many. But I'd say this conditioner is more effective at keeping the color than a "regular" conditioner.
