    Great for my thinner ginger hair

    By JJRose

    from Carson City, Nevada

    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Conditioner:

    After using this Pureology Strength Cure line for about six months now, I can say it definitely works. Very satisfied with the results I've seen and felt. My hair is fine, I'm in my late 30's, and I also alternate this line with a clarifying line every few days. Never have I enjoyed results from a strengthener as much as I have with these. Also, this line has a nice soft smell, like fresh babypowder.

    Terrible Smell and Itchy Scalp? Pass

    By Meena

    from Altamonte Springs, FL

    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Conditioner:

    I made the terrible mistake of buying the large size of this strength cure formula having only previously trued trial sizes of other Purology formulas. First and foremost, for reasons unbeknownst to me, this product leaves my scalp itchy (so basically I have a nearly full bottle I won't use again). I have honestly used dozens of conditioners – from cheap to high-end salon brands – and not one has ever made my scalp itch. Second strike against this for me is the smell – like old baby powder and even older roses. And the smell DOES NOT FADE. Usually I love for the scent of shampoo or conditioner to linger; but this smells like an old thrift store and I cannot stand it. And besides an itchy scalp and awful scent, this just is not a great conditioner. Does my hair feel any stronger or softer or more resilient than when I use any other conditioner? No. In fact it feels more dry and fragile than it does after almost any other conditioner I typically use on my both-thick-and-fine, very naturally curly, color-treated hair. Personally, this is mot worth the money. Time to find a friend with permanently stuffed sinuses to donate some expensive conditioner to!

          I purchased trial bottles of this product looking for a new color safe, strengthening shampoo to help with damage. I'm just really happy I tried out the trial size- this stuff was awful on my hair. It seemed to detangle fine, but gave my hair a straw like texture and started breaking off very easily -even from my roots. I'm not mad, I'm disappointed.

            This conditioner (and the shampoo) have totally changed my hair. I've been using Pureology Hydrate Sheer and I liked it, but I found that my ends were dry and I was experiencing a fair amount of breakage. Not anymore! I switched to Strength Cure, and I'll never go back. The smell took a little getting used to, but I've grown to like it. My hair is very soft and smooth, and I don't notice nearly as many hairs in the shower drain as I used to.

                  How often would you suggest using this conditioner or would it be okay for daily use? I know that some strengthening products are best to use only once a week because it can cause the hair to become brittle if used too often.

                • Q:

                  I get confused because you have so many products. I am 54 with color treated hair- it would be solid grey if I didn't color. It's fine but I have a lot of it and it's become extremely dry and frizzy this year. It's created a lot of damage.
                  I'm using the hydrate line but feel like there might be a better line for me. What do you recommend?

                  Love the way this makes my hair feel after it is washed, but the next day my ends are so dry and frizzy. Been using for over 7 months now. Should I try something else? should I still use the strength cure shampoo and maybe a different conditioner. I color my hair with blonde high lights every 6 months. it's just really dry about inch down to my ends.

                    Pureology Strength Cure Conditioner is great for strengthening damaged, distressed hair. For added moisture, consider using Pureology Hydrate Superfood Treatment 1-2 times per week. It is an intensely nourishing mask that softens, moisturizes and makes the hair more manageable.
