Hair loss and irritated scalp.

      Comments about L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

      When I first started to use total repair it seemed to make my hair more manageable. But overtime my scalp started to get irritated and I started to lose more hair than I normally do. I thought it was just due to hormonal changes with age. Stopped using it to see if it would help my scalp. And when I used a different product my scalp felt better right away. Decided to to see if others complained of hair loss. Now after doing the research and reading experiences of others I am convinced my hair has thinned greatly because of this product. Glad I figured it out. Hope it will stop falling out and grow back now.

      Comments about L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

      I use this on my little sister's 4C hair. SUPER KINKY CURLY and honestly, it's not that bad. My little sister is 9 and she sweats and gets her hair dirty ontop of the product buildup that occurs, so the shampoo is very great at cleaning any residue and ect. It smells great and it leaves the hair shiney. The only complaint I have is that it leaves her hair very dry, but that's obviously something that can be fixed with the conditioner.

      I used just the shampoo, one time, and while I was in the shower rinsing the shampoo out, clumps of my hair came off! This has never happened to me before! I will never use any L'Oréal products again. Looks like they need another class action lawsuit.

        Comments about L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

        I have fine, dark blonde hair. I don't color it, so it isn't super damaged, but my hair gets tangled if I even look at it the wrong way so I like to keep it as moisturized and healthy as possible. I thought I'd save a few bucks and try this shampoo and conditioning system out because the reviews are pretty high for a drugstore brand. It left my hair feeling ok right out of the shower. A little weighed down, but nothing crazy. Then 8 hours later... it felt as if I'd slathered my hair in coconut oil and beeswax and then ran a 10k. I know it wasn't the conditioner, because I only applied it to the ends of my hair. The roots of my hair were disgusting. My hair is not overly oily, so it was certainly the coating from the shampoo. This might work for someone who has outrageously dry, thick, dark hair. But I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who doesn't have generous wiggle room in the department of dirty-looking.feeling hair.

            I love this shampoo! My mom introduced me to it because she has been using it & it does so well with just colored hair & hair that has the hair dryer, straightener & curling iron used on it! My hair feels so good after using this shampoo & it smells amazing! I love it! I've tried several different kinds & so far this has been my favorite as far as taking care of my hair when it comes to protecting it from heat & protecting my color!

                I bought this product in hopes of adding volume to my wavy hair. After the second usage I noticed my hair very dry and tangled. I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and I have been using this for atleast a month. I regret even using it for this long. I have never experienced such awful hair texture. This product has definitely damaged my hair as opposed to doing what it advertised. I had to contact Loreal customer service and express my discontent and they said they will send a refund check in the mail. I would definitely not be repurchasing this product.

                    For the last 6 months, I've been using this shampoo and conditioner. The smell is amazing, but I noticed my hair started falling out a lot more. And then noticed it gradually started falling out in clumps every time I showered. Now my hair has thinned SO much from all the fall outs, and I'm so devastated!!! I've always had long and thick hair, now my hair is so thin. My pony tails are basically half the size they used to be. Never using this shampoo/conditioner again :(

                    • Q:

                      Does this hair line contain parabens?

                        A:

                        Hi, Teri! All of our ingredients are listed on the product itself or on this page, just click the "Ingredients" tab.
                        Parabens are highly effective in preventing the growth of fungi, bacteria and yeast that could contaminate and degrade products.
                        As part of our commitment to deliver high-quality, effective products, certain parabens are used in some of our formulations to ensure the safety of our consumers. Extensive research spanning decades has confirmed the parabens in our portfolio are safe at the concentrations we use. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates the personal care industry, upholds these findings.
                        While we take great care in evaluating each ingredient we use and are confident in our products' safety, we know there is public conversation encouraging consumers to avoid certain ingredients, as is the case with some parabens. Based on growing demand for products that do not include parabens, we substituted them for other preservatives in some of our products.
                        As we have for the past 100 years, we will continue to take a rigorous approach to product quality and safety, while monitoring consumer insights and preferences. If you would like to learn more about parabens and how they protect your safety, we encourage you to visit www.cos
