    I use this product every day when I get in the shower, my friends mom had bought it before and her bottle said "3-5 minutes, or for more dry brittle hair leave in for 10" mine only says "3-5" but it works wonders!! My hair is very dry and very brittle, including curly/wavy! But when I use this product IT WORKS WONDERS!! I will continue to buy this product again and again!!!

        I was skeptic at first because I usually use only salon products such as matrix, redken, etc. I used this after lightening prelightened hair, it made the hair feel so soft & like it had never been colored before. Will be repurchasing !!

        Nice conditioner, but nothing special

        By LoneOrchid

        from Asheville, NC

        Comments about L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm:

        My hair felt softer after using this than with the average drugstore conditioner, but it fell short of erasing any damage. I have long, fine, uncolored hair that has some signs of drying and damage at the ends and around the crown (frizzy flyaways), but this didn't help any of that. I've gone through almost the entire jar and have used it as a treatment a few times (applied to dry hair and left on for 20-30 min). The best it does is act like a slightly better conditioner. No lasting effects, must be used every wash for the same unimpressive results. But you get what you pay for, so no big loss.

          This is my second time buying this product and it has worked well for me! especially following the instructions, leaving it in for about 5-6 mins. My hair is definitely softer after a regular wash and then leaving in this balm. As someone who has processed their hair a lot within the last year, it's definitely a product that's helped my hair stay a bit more healthy than it was before!

          Didn't really do anything one way or another

          By RWolfi

          from Oklahoma

          Comments about L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm:

          I've used L'Oreal hair dye 23 years now. I've always liked the way the color came out so it was great. Then as I've aged I noticed that my hair began to become brittle and get tangled a lot. The hair salon said that my hair was "overworked" so I bought this L'Oreal Hair Restorer (as I've been using the #5 Repair shampoo, conditioner, and spritz since they came out). Honestly they haven't helped my hair at all. I guess I'm just glad it hasn't made it worse but it was really sucky to pay all this and still not have any positive results. It feels nice when I get out of the shower but as soon as it dries it's the same old brittleness and tangles like a rats nest in a matter of minutes.

          Such a great deep conditioner

          By fergacookie

          from Westland, MI

          Comments about L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm:

          I absolutely love this product. I have mostly fine straight hair that's slightly wavy in a few places, but lots of little fly-aways. This makes that much more manageable and helps those pesky little suckers lay down. It leave the hair super soft. I'm allergic to everything, but I can handle the fragrance in this just fine.

          Love this product discovered it in a pharmacy out in Cancun when traveling, purchased it and fell in love. However I had to leave it behind due to TSA regulations. So happy to have found it in the states works great!! Really leaves hair feeling soft, gets rid of dry ends. It is a little bit of a heavy product but that doesn't bother me. And it smells great !

          Comments about L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm:

          I used this in conjunction with opalex. I have used opalex with other repairing conditioners but i really liked it with this. It really left my hair soft amd shiny and healthier looking. I have bleached hair so this obviously will not be wnough to tame frizz i will also need a leave in balm to help woth that but with this alone it really does make a difference and is better than other drugstore conditioners. I think i liked this just as mich if not more than my ion repair conditioner. It smells nice which is a plus. Also does not leave that gooey filmy feeling that some thick conditioners leave. Its lightweight. I uploaded a photo, mind you my hair has been bleached twice and toned many times so i would ao its pretty healthy for all the processing i have done to it my whole life.

            I'm wondering if I can use this product on permed hair? My hair unfortunately has no body whatsoever unless I have it permed so I don't want to lose the perm too soon but I'd like a little extra conditioning as it seems a little dry and dull.

              Hello! Yes, you can use this product on permed hair! To be extra safe you can also ask your stylist that permed your hair just in case she used other products on your hair during the process. It will be able to help you get rid of your dry and dull ends as well. We hope this information is helpful!

              A:

              The Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm is a great deep conditioning and repair balm. Use this product in place of your regular conditioner. Depending on how much TLC the hair needs, use this product as needed. In the beginning the hair may need the extra care provided with this balm almost after every shampoo. With regular use, as the condition of the hair improves, this product is most typically used once a week or once every other week

              All of our shampoos, conditioners and treatments can be safely used on color treated hair. In fact, the Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm is very similar to the after color conditioner included with our hair color kits.

              The Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm can be used following every shampoo if your needs the extra TLC. Don't be surprised though, to find that as the weeks go by, you need to use the Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm less frequently.
