Most Helpful Positive Review Not for me
PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW IN ITS ENTIRETY:
Ok, first thing's first: Makes my hair soft, shiny, tangle-free, healthier, and kept my red color from fading. It did everything it says it does...and some. IT MADE MY HAIR FALL OUT! I have oily, fine, LONG hair. Prior to using this I had normal hair loss (100-150 strands a day). When I started using this product, I noticed an excessive amount of hair loss during shampooing, conditioning, AND brushing. It was non-stop. More hair in the drain, on the floor, in my brushes, etc. It made my fine hair thin out even more! Even my beautician noticed! I thought it had to do with it "repairing" my hair, but my hair was not that damaged to begin with. I figured it would stop after a few weeks, but NOPE! Here I am - 7 months later - with the problem persisting. I finished my first bottle of shampoo and decided to go back to my old shampoo, L'Anza, before buying another bottle of the Strength Cure. After one use of my old shampoo - VOILA! No excessive hair in my shower drain! My hair loss was no more. No stray strands on my clothes and hardly any on my brush. That is how I KNOW this line increased my hair loss. I didn't stop using it sooner because, like I said previously, it did everything it said it would. It made my hair so healthy, shiny, soft, manageable and it kept my hair color in tact. If I didn't experience such excessive hair loss/thinning, I would have found my holy grail. I only knocked off one star because of my experience with it. Maybe it's a rare occurrence, but I felt the need to share my experience.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not happy at all!!!!
After using Pureology Essential Repair shampoo, condition and split end correcting treatment for years, to have it replaced with Strength Cure was like a slap in the face! My stylist always called the split end correcting treatment "medicine for the hair" and she was right. Strength Cure didn't leave my hair feeling anywhere as nice as Essential Repair did. I could use just the shampoo and conditioner and my hair felt great, soft and manageable. I have color treated, fly away hair, it doesn't like to behave and gets worse when it is humid (only got part of the curly gene that my cousins enjoy). Strength Cure seemed more chemical based compared to Essential Repair, didn't smell all the great . I have gotten shampoo suds in the eye before but when it happened with the Strength Cure it was more painful than any other shampoo I have ever used. Pureology took a great product and replaced it with a poor one. When I told my stylist that I didn't like the Strength Cure and it was time to find something new, she said a number of her other clients had also said the same thing.

Before buying this, I did ALL the research & read all the reviews. I never really trusted reviews to begin with. I always felt like there are paid people posting positive comments just so that people can buy. Well, I made sure to come back with my review to assure that's not the case!
I box dyed my hair BLACK for years & finally decided to go blonde. You can imagine the damage my hair was in after spending hours sitting in the chair bleaching and stripping the black out of my hair. Not only did I have to bleach it twice in less than 2 weeks just to get it lighter, but I hated the brass, orangey color it left, so I box dyed it a light brown once I got home (yes, I know I know..WHY!) my hair was beyond, beyond damaged even after getting it cut super short. I have tried different shampoos and conditioners to revive my hair, but I was not satisfied with any. I searched high & low for a shampoo & conditioner that was made by the Gods and I would NOT accept anything less! Lol I'm sooo happy that I randomly came across this shampoo and conditioner! After reading the reviews, I decided to give it a try. Why not right? I've already tried everything else. Let me tell youuuu. After the first use, my hair felt AMAZING. Usually my hair feels dry and brittle after I shower but this stuff left my hair feeling so soft and silky. I allowed it to air dry and put nothing else in my hair just to see how effective this shampoo and conditioner really was. I'm a satisfied customer and will ONLY be using this moving forward. The price is well worth it.
Buy! Buy! Buy!
Amazing New Smell
smith from Georgia
I LOVE this shampoo. It has improved the health of my head immensely. I REALLY REALLY love the new scent. The old scent was huge turn off and almost deal breaker for me, but I find the new scent to be so fresh amazing. I hope you never change it! This shampoo has done wonders for my hair and I actually look forward to showering just so I can use it.
I would buy this product again.
Kelly from Riverside CA
I use the shampoo daily with the conditioner and then a leave-in conditioner before drying. I use the pureology deep conditioning mask once a week.
stop changing ratings from GA
please stop making this horrible shampoo.
makes my hair so soft and healthy!
vanessa from Michigan
I was using a shampoo and conditioner previously that had the dmdm hydantoin ingredient in it, and it made my hair fall out and super tangled. Now after using this shampoo and conditioner for over a month, my hair feels fuller, and is noticeably softer and silkier. I rotate this with the Pureology purple shampoo, and also a clarifying shampoo. I think this shampoo smells so good and lathers really well which i like, but I can also see why people think it takes long to rinse out but I haven't had any issues. I also have color treated hair and my color still looks good! I'll have to keep using it to see if I notice anything that these other reviews are claiming, but so far so good!
Jessica from Michigan
Love love love this product. It smells amazing even after I blow dry. Have had more good hair days then bad.
Kristy J from Florida
Love the smell of this shampoo and the fact that it only takes a very small amount to lather my hair. My hair has more shine and actually feels better!
Susan112 from undisclosed
I have been using the Strength Cure Shampoo for quite a while . Its great for color treated and dry hair . Very little is all you need to use at each washing. The matching conditioner is also wonderful for your hair. I wash my hair everyday and thee products are great.
Broken Hair from Georgia
ZERO STARS. Never again will I use this terrible product. The shampoo made my hair so dry that it broke off so much that I had to get a haircut to try to save my now weakened hair.
Best. Shampoo. Ever.
Chelsjo from Grand Rapids, Michigan
I've been searching for a shampoo that's good for my hair and this did not disappoint. It's definitely worth the money - my new go to!
Hair Is Damaged Now from FL
terrible. For the price, I was expecting amazing results. It destroyed my hair. I have had hair breaking off in clumps after using this shampoo.
LeAnn from Washington
I like this product! Makes my hair feel good and smells amazing!
Not a good product at all!
Cdenton from Nh
I used this once and my scalp was burning and my hair is falling out in abundance. That's crazy after one use I highly do not recommend.
Fitmomma from Alexandria Virginia
I bought the sample shampoo/conditioner due to not wanting to commit because of how pricey the shampoo is. I bought the regular size. Am impressed at wash #2 how soft my hair, and it seems like it is back to normal. The hairdresser damaged my hair and I was in distraught. Am thankful for this product and the sales person who suggested it.
Changes ruined my go to shampoo and conditioner
Metalmom from Michigan
The recent changes to this product have completely turned me off. This was my go to shampoo and conditioner.
Why mess with something that was perfect?
The smell is horrible and it does not wash out well.
Jess from Illinois
This shampoo has helped my hair dramatically. I have had horrible hair for a few years and once I started using this and the conditioner my hair has been stronger, shinier, less breakage, and the overall feel is healthy and that is all I can ask for from a product that is going to cost more a little more. Just remember a little goes a long way.
Different smell ruined product
Shower to bun from Corvallis, Oregon
I bought this duo for the last two years and love it so much! I believe the smell changed and I just about died when I smelled it. I really hoped it was a bad bottle so I went and bought another one to see and it still smells terrible. Cheap smelling. I need the other one back! Please please bring the old one back. I had to buy a different brand.... which I am so sad about. But if they ever bring the good smelling one back I will start buying it again.
WORST SHAMPOO FOR COLORED HAIR
Money Wasted from Florida
I AM GIVING THIS SHAMPOO NEGATIVE STARS. This is THE worst shampoo for colored hair. Before I had to change shampoos because of that DMDM hydantoin debacle, I used Nexxus Color Therapy and my hair was silky, a vibrant dark pink, strong, all around amazing. I used this ONE TIME and it stripped EVERY THING out of my hair. My beautiful color is gone. It is now a horrible dull reddish brown. It took me a long time to get my hair healthy after bleaching it for 7 years. This shampoo completely destroyed my efforts. My hair is so dry that it is constantly breaking. I had no problems with breakage UNTIL I used this shampoo. I will be returning it.
Doesn't wash out well
Monig0778 from Lakeland, fl
I tried for a week, and every time I blow try my hair it feels like the product it still in there. I heard good things about this product and seen they changed the formula. I follow the directions on how much and asked how much to use to see if I was using the product wrong! Diidnt workout for me.
Strength cure shampoo
Robbie from Wisconsin
I love this shampoo. It gives my hair shine, softness with volume.
Worst Shampoo I've EVER had.
Melba T. from Florida
This by far is the WORST shampoo I have EVER used. It completely stripped my hair of everything! I had to change shampoos because the one I used to use had dmdm hydantoin in it. so I thought surely this one with such good reviews would be worth the price. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! I had a beautiful midnight rose pink color for a couple months with no problems and after 1 wash of this horrible shampoo, it stripped it bare to an ugly reddish brown. I have to recolor it. which I wouldn't do for a couple more months. My hair is so dry from this shampoo that it is breaking left and right. I am super upset, I have worked very hard to get nice hair after having clumps of it fall out due to chemo, and this shampoo completely destroyed it.
Should be named THE STRIPPER
Melanie from Florida
If this could have NEGATIVE stars......
I was really excited to try this shampoo because of all the good reviews and it looked promising. It literally STRIPPED my hair of everything. My hair is so dry it's like straw now....and that's after 1 wash. It's gonna take a lot of work to get back to the softness my hair had. It also dulled my midnight rose pink hair color to a horrible weird red color, so now I have to fix that. I am glad I decided to try the travel size instead of wasting my money on the full size.
Sadhairday from Wyoming
Why did you change it?! It was perfect the way it was. I'm so disappointed. The new version smells like cheap perfume and it makes my hair feel greasy. Please go back to the original formula!
Fav Shampoo & Conditioner!!
Love to Shop from South Mississippi
I love this shampoo and conditioner. Not to heavy for a rebuilding shampoo. Doesn't way the hair down. Leaves very smooth and soft and smells great!!
My favourite shampoo - ruined
LWatson from England
Iv been using Pureology for nearly 10 years and always loved it - why on earth have you changed it?? It smells far far to strongly, it's doesn't wash out as well. I'm so incredibly annoyed - I'm now going to have to look for a new shampoo brand.
