      The strength cure product line is the only thing that I've found since moving from Las Vegas to Seattle that gets rid of the flaky, dry, itchy scalp that I got after moving here. It provides a balance of of moisture and also thickens as well.

            Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

            I had to move back to my hometown because of a serious illness I came down with and my old shampoo and conditioner are not carried around here so I had to find another line that would help keep my highlights looking good and help with dry hair as well and also with the strength. I chose Pureology because I had tried Redken, Paul Mitchell, Matrix, etc., and they had not worked (for my hair at least). With Pureology, I found a winner. It does a great job holding my color in so I don't have to get it highlighted as much, and doesn't leave it looking dry and frizzy, which is a problem I have with a lot of shampoos and conditioners. I definitely recommend it. It costs a little more, but I think it's worth it for the hair benefits.

            wonderful product,here is the correct info on arginine!!

            By nicole

            from San dimas, CA

            Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

            so I got this shampoo and I really love it! I have been doing a lot of different things to my hair including a lot of bleaching for a couple of years now and I have had a lot of breakage and split ends and very dry, damaged hair. I have read a lot of the reviews and I thought I would give this a try and it really helped my hair a lot and made it so soft and healthy and just brought my hair back to life and it did not do anything bad to my color and I have pastel lavender silver hair with some pastel blue. But I mostly wanna say something about one of the reviews I read that just totally bashed this product but mostly they tried to provide info on one of the ingredients that's in this shampoo, and I have no problem with someone writing a bad review if the product didn't work for them, but I hate when someone writes that bad review and provides wrong info on the product. Don't write wrong information just cause it didn't work out for u and u don't like it, do proper research. Here is the correct information on one of the ingredients that's in this shampoo which is arginine. Arginine is a type of amino acid, and as we know, amino acids are the "building blocks" of proteins. ... One of the biggest benefits of arginine is its ability to improve blood flow and circulation. And here is info from another site. Arginine is a chemical building block called "an amino acid." It is obtained from the diet and is necessary for the body to make proteins. Here is info from one more site. Arginine, or L-arginine, is one of 20 amino acids that you get from proteins in your diet. It's typically considered a semi-essential amino acid. That means you can usually get enough of it from diet alone. So there u have it this ingredient is NOT bad for u and it's NOT some bad chemical made.

                Recommended by a hairstylist friend I was reluctant to spend so much, but she told me to use a pea sized amount on my shoulder length hair and it has changed my hair. Last weekend I was at a spa and used their shampoo all weekend and my hair returned to its former frizzy, unruly, dry state. As soon as I returned home and used my pureology products, it was fine.

                  • 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!
