      I love Pureology strength cure line. I've bleached my hair for years and had damage and it even stopped growing around the sides of my face. Since I've used Pureology strength cure shampoo and conditioner my hair is healthier and growing again!

        Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

        It's only been about a week..and...
        I have incredibly processed hair. Very dry. Very damaged (after years of bleaching and hot tools). I made the decision to start focusing on my hair health. I had tried so many moisturizing products. Anything to tame the pile of dried out hay on top of my head. My stylist made the recommendation to use a strengthening product in place of a moisturizing product. I heard great reviews about this brand. I was worried that if I didn't treat the dryness, that there would be no improvement. So happy to say that I was wrong. This product does everything it promises, and then some! Not only does my hair feel healthy again; it is soft and doesn't seem to be lacking in moisture. Two thumbs up and five stars! Very happy about using this product.... I haven't had a product work like this in a long time.

          Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

          This shampoo was recommended to me by an Ulta stylist when I went to the store looking for a good shampoo for my color treated, very dry and damaged hair. I do not have a city water supply, I live in the county and we have well water which I know can have iron and mineral deposits in it to make my hair harder to moisturize. She recommended that I use this shampoo and the Pureology Hydrate Conditioner and the combination makes my hair feel great. It feels so moisturized, soft, shiny, full and clean. It didn't weight my fine hair down either. Just what I was looking for. After using this combination and then blow drying my hair it still makes my hair soft even if I don't style it with a brush. Just a note: the Hydrate Conditioner has mint in it and it will make your scalp feel tingly so don't be alarmed when that happens. Otherwise I am so glad to have finally found something that works.

                          We do not believe that there should be any issue with using our products; however, since our products have not been tested in conjunction with Brazilian Keratin Relaxers, we cannot provide you with usage information.

                          We suggest you contact your stylist who did the treatment and follow their advice.

                      • Q:

                        Does Strength Cure contain any protein? I am having a difficult time finding the right moisture/protein balance for my hair. I used to use Hydrate and Hydrate Light because I have a lot of fine hair and the regular Hydrate conditioner was too heavy for me. Now that Hydrate Light no longer exists, my stylist recommended Strength Cure.

                          We encourage you to use shampoo and conditioner from the same line. For example, use the Hydrate Shampoo and Hydrate Conditioner. The Shampoo and Conditioner work together to provide maximum benefits.

                          If your stylist believes that you would benefit from using two lines, then you should use Hydrate Shampoo and Hydrate Conditioner one day, then use Strength Cure Shampoo and Strength Cure Conditioner the next time you wash. This will provide optimum results.

                          If oily scalp is a problem, you might benefit from using Pureology Purify Shampoo once or twice a week. This gentle, color safe shampoo provides a thorough cleanse to remove excess oil. You can continue to use your favorite Pureology shampoo on the other days. You might even alternate the Strength Cure with the Pure Volume depending on the needs of your hair each day!
