    Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

    I have really thick strong hair and I have always been able to use just whatever I wanted and I have always had super high lift blonde hair. I damaged my hair so very bad with a heat product and once my hair started breaking it just wouldn't stop. This is the only thing that has saved my hair and I will never use anything else. I no longer feel that I will need to shave my head and start all over! lol

          Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

          I've tried a few different Pureology formulas. When I was blonder, I used the version for blondes and loved it. I tried the moisturizing formula, which I did not find at all moisturizing. I bought a trial size of this formula for a trip and fell in love. It smells great, moisturizes and de-tangles my dry hair. I don't know if it adds strength, but it definitely is a quality product.

              Comments about Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo:

              I got highlights and they over processed, the stylist left the bleach on a little too long. I've never had hair color, and my hair experienced a lot of split ends, got really frizzy, changed in texture entirely (was pen straight now somewhat relaxed/wavy). This was not a miracle: I still have splits I will be trimming off throughout the year. But it did make my hair a lot softer, a lot less straw-like and a lot less frizzy. I am also an ingredient fanatic: I wear mostly organic makeup items. Pureology fits into that concern.

                    This product dried out my hair, I had to use multiple deep conditioners and hydrating treatments afterward just for my hair to look normal. I didn't like the smell either, and for that price, I was expecting much more. Really disappointed with this product.

                        Strength Cure Shampoo is formulated to repair and protect damaged hair of all hair types, including oily hair. it is not intended to help control oily hair or scalp.

                        if you are looking at help control oily hair take a look at Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo. Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo extends the life of your hairstyle by absorbing oil and leaving your hair with a soft, shiny finish.

                    • Q:

                      I have been using Pureology Hydrate s&c for years. I am almost out and debating on trying strength or another unless I should just stay with what I like. A little nervous about all the reviews of the bad smell of Strength. I have blond, thick but fine color treated, dry hair (I live in the mountains). I wash almost every day and I do blow dry. Recommendations appreciated!

                        We suggest you contact your stylist who did the treatment and follow their advice.

                    • Q:

                      Does Strength Cure contain any protein? I am having a difficult time finding the right moisture/protein balance for my hair. I used to use Hydrate and Hydrate Light because I have a lot of fine hair and the regular Hydrate conditioner was too heavy for me. Now that Hydrate Light no longer exists, my stylist recommended Strength Cure.
