    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

    I tend to have very dry hair due to drying and flat ironing. This is a great shampoo that helps keep my hair from becoming too dry and helps with split ends. Plus, it smells like baby powder, and I just love it!

        Wanted to like this formula, but literally couldn't get past the fragrance of it. Although, I'm sure some would like the way it smells--for my nose it was a "no-way". It had to be returned.

          only used a few times so far, but i love the results. My hair feels silkier, and my style seems to last all day.
          I also used the conditioner, results positive for smoother, thicker hair. I will buy this product again, although it is a bit pricey.

              Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

              I bought this shampoo because it was reccomended by a friend who only used Pureology line products. The Strength Cure product itself lathers well, and has a floral scent to it. It also is pink. It probably smells the best out of all the pureology shampoos. The scent doesn't last too awful long after the shower. This product does a good job of gently cleansing the hair and it claims to repair damage in the hair shaft however, I did not notice a ton of difference in my hair after a couple uses. I have noticed more shine and softness somewhat but nothing dramatic. The purelolgy line is vegan and uses great ingredients with added oil blends. Their products are worth a try but very very pricey and Im not sure they are worth all the money you have to spend.

              The shampoo works fine but I truly hate the smell of it. I guess I'm weird b/c others claim it smells great. Disappointed after paying this much for a product--I should love it.

                  I love this shampoo. It smells so good. Due to coloring and highlights my hair is very dry and tends to frizz. After using shampoo and conditioner (also highly recommend ) I notice a difference. My hair was soft and shiny. Will definetly purchase this product again.

                  • Q:

                    Most "strengthening" products have keratin in them and aren't good for daily use because too much keratin will cause breakage. Can I use this daily without this problem?

                      A:

                      Thank you for your inquiry concerning gluten in Pureology products. Most ingredients derived from grain sources are highly refined and retain no traces of gluten proteins. For less refined ingredients from natural sources, Pureology has established strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic protein. Since individuals exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to these proteins, if you have any questions or concerns you should discuss with your medical care provider.
