    My hair is pretty fried from heat and highlights, so I usually use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. My stylist suggested I try this because it would be better for my hair and I love it!!! It's extremely moisturizing! It's my new favorite!

              Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

              I really don't get what the buzz is about. I bought this after a stylist recommended it to me for my extremely heat-damaged hair, which is prone to breakage and split ends. I've been using the Strength Cure shampoo and conditioner for a couple of months now and haven't noticed a difference in the health of my hair. However, I have noticed that while I used to be able to go a couple of days between washes, my hair now gets very greasy very fast, and there is always a TON of product buildup. I'm disappointed, especially since it's so expensive.

              This is the Cadillacs of shampoo. Its great, non-greasy, and strengthens hair that breaks easily. The one and only default is the price.

                • Q:

                  I get highlights and also permanent single-process on my dark hair to cover grays. I have fine hair, that can get oily around the scalp, but the ends can get dry at times. I have been using the Strength conditioner, with the Pure Volume Shampoo. Would the Strength Shampoo be a better match?

                    A:

                    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!

                  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?
