    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.

                I only need to wash my hair a few times a week. This product is great at reviving my hair and making it stronger. I color my hair on a monthly basis and my hair gets straightened daily. That being said I need a shampoo and conditioner that helps replenish my hair. This shampoo does the trick.

                    I was recommended this shampoo and conditioner set by my hair dresser. Before I started using this shampoo my hair was very dry and damaged due to excessive chemical processes . This shampoo has transformed my hair into silky beautiful healthy hair . It is so worth the price ! I have tried so many different professional shampoos and this is by far the best I haveever used. I'm buying this in liter size !!! Thank you pureology !

                      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.

                        A:

                        Frizz can be due to lack of moisture, relative humidity (moisture in the air), damage to the cuticle, and/or the natural texture of the hair. Strength Cure Shampoo is a concentrated fortifying shampoo, and if your hair has a tendency to frizz then moisture is key. Also a leave-in product before styling will help treat and manage your hair for a preferred result. We actually suggest using the Hydrate Condition (Item #: 2161860) (only on the mid-lengths and ends for your specific hair type) to obtain the moisture needed to alleviate frizz. Or another option is to use Colour Fanatic (Item #: 2264503) 21 benefit multi-tasking hair beautifier. This leave-in spray will not weigh down your hair and is designed to prime, protect, and perfect the hair.

                        Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo is designed to fortify and remove dulling residues with maximized respect for scarred, sensitized cuticle. To remove buildup, use Pureology Purify Shampoo (Item #: 2241025) which contains triple chelators of witch hazel, baking soda and tea tree oil to remove impurities caused by chlorine, hard water minerals and styling products. Purify offers gentle yet effective cleansing and extraordinary colour protection without stripping and buildup.
