    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

    I bought this product after my stylist reccommended it to me since I am growing out my hair. I was skeptical at first because my hair is already healthy as is and thick as can be. I bought it regardless and regret it.

    I wash my hair every other day at most and my scalp is super dry and itchy. My scalp has never been this way EVER. I have also noticed I have been losing more hair then usual in the shower.

    For the price you pay for this product, its really harsh. I bought this brand beause I thought it was more health conscious and vegan but in the end there are more chemicals harming then good in this brand.

    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

    Ok., not sure what's going on here but I have used this product in the samples and I had to wash my hair within 2 hours of using. Almost felt like my head was burning. When reading the ingredients Arginine keeps coming up. I also tried one of the Matrix repair with this ingredient and it did the same thing....burning sensation.
    When reasearching this new ingredient, which ulta is not even listing on there site this is what comes up.
    A 2006 study showed that arginine was not helpful -- and may have been harmful -- for treating heart attacks in combination with standard treatment.
    In clinical trials, arginine has been used safely with minor side effects for up to three months. Possible side effects include abdominal pain and bloating, diarrhea, and gout. It may also cause a worsening of breathing in people with asthma.

    Arginine may interact with certain medications that lower blood pressure. It may also interact with certain heart medications and drugs such as Viagra that treat erectile dysfunction.

    So, tell me Redken/Loreal why is this in your shampoo and conditioner
    ???????

                  Thank you for a wonderful product line. I use the strengthening shampoo, conditioner, and strengthen cure. It is very dry up here in the winter. I also like to do "Beach hair" which dries out my hair. I use this for a coupl of days to bring the life back to it.
