    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

    I have been using this product for over a year. After having my hair colored/highlighted regularly for 20 years, this product has helped to bring back the healthy, strong hair I had in my younger years. I use the complete Strength Cure product line and it really does what it is designed to do. I had very minimal loss and virtually no breakage after using the product line for a month or so.

    When a Nickel goes a long way..,

    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

    This shampoo was recommended by my new hair stylist. At first I was hesitant (the cost is a bit alarming) but I literally use a nickel sized amount for first wash, then with my second wash, the same amount creates a beautiful lather! I LOVE this shampoo, very clean feeling, not drying!! Trying to grow my hair out again, recommended for the I link extensions in my hair, my hair actually feels good after I wash it! Definatly buying again!

    Excellent

    By Yo momma

    from Florida

    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

    I really like the shampoo and conditioner. It's really good for relax hair. It leaves your hair soft but strong at same time. It's a little pricey but a little goes a long way and you don't have to buy that often. So ladies quit using that suave and VO5. I'll definitely look into buying into the hair mask of this line. Now I seen some people on the reviews say that it leaves their hair dry. you must rotate with the hydration shampoo and conditioner every other week so you have a balance between protein and moisture. that's the key to grow your hair out make sure you have a balance between those two. Otherswise it will be off and see some kind of breakage. It happen to me so I know

      Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

      My hair loves this shampoo & conditioner. I purchased a shower filter for hard water & chlorine removal. This makes a big difference with my hair & skin (health too). I only have to use a small amount of shampoo & conditioner on my long hair. I do not put the conditioner on my roots. About once a month I use a splash of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar & 8 oz of water to remove any excess buildup of product.

      Overall good

      By Amanda

      from North Aurora

      Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

      I started using this to help restore my dried out bleached hair. It works really well, leaves my hair less frizzy and it feels so much softer. The only thing I don't like is that it has zero lather and it doesn't fully clean my hair when I skip a few day of washing. My hair still feels greasy and heavy in spots. I switch between this and joico k-pac and that does a much better job fully cleaning, I will only be using this during shorter periods of not washing my hair

                  A:

                  Thank you for your inquiry concerning gluten in Pureology products. Most ingredients derived from grain sources are highly refined and retain no traces of gluten proteins. For less refined ingredients from natural sources, Pureology has established strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic protein. Since individuals exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to these proteins, if you have any questions or concerns you should discuss with your medical care provider.

                  Although Strength Cure Shampoo will help to fortify weakened hair against breakage (regardless of whether natural or color-treated), it is not indicated to treat any scalp condition. Strength Cure Shampoo is sulfate-free and paraben-free.

                1 answer

                • Staff Expert

                  A:

                  Frizz can be due to lack of moisture, relative humidity (moisture in the air), damage to the cuticle, and/or the natural texture of the hair. Strength Cure Shampoo is a concentrated fortifying shampoo, and if your hair has a tendency to frizz then moisture is key. Also a leave-in product before styling will help treat and manage your hair for a preferred result. We actually suggest using the Hydrate Condition (Item #: 2161860) (only on the mid-lengths and ends for your specific hair type) to obtain the moisture needed to alleviate frizz. Or another option is to use Colour Fanatic (Item #: 2264503) 21 benefit multi-tasking hair beautifier. This leave-in spray will not weigh down your hair and is designed to prime, protect, and perfect the hair.
