          I purchased this product when it was on sale during Ultas annual hair care sale, and I am so glad I gave it a try! My hair is over processed from being colored/bleached and flat iron and with just one use of this lotion, my hair felt like new! It literally felt like a different persons hair, I couldn't stop touching it! I can't say enough about this stuff, I was truly amazed by the results, and a little goes a long way. Although this product is on the expensive side, I will definitely be re-purchasing!

                Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Repair:

                I had a horrible encounter with a stylist 3 months ago who put me under the dryer with bleach on my hair. My hair was literally breaking off in her hands as I watched her try to comb it. I've lost over a foot of hair as a result of this and have tried countless products, conditioning treatments, etc since then. This stuff is amazing. My ends were rough and fuzzy, and stood out more since I had to get a layered cut. After this product my hair feels softer than before bleachgate. I was hesitant to try this line, but after using the LP restore mask with good results I got this product on sale during an Ulta event. I'm glad I did. It's pricey, but worth it if your hair is compromised.

                        I love this stuff, have only been using for a week along with another product in this brand and they are amazing. They make my hair feel thicker/fuller, help with frizz and fly away, holds the style well which is hard with natural curly hair. I don't care much for the smell but it is not overwhelming and the benefits outweigh the scent. Highly recommend!

                                Fresh Cut is meant for all hair types and specifically targeted to sealing ends. Restore Instant Repair is recommended for dry/damaged hair. It provides richer conditioning that targets damage sites from root to tip and helps prevent future breakage.

                              Will this work for black afro type hair? I blow dry and flat iron once a week.
