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.

I had lost half length hair and fullness due excess bleaching and $3 shampoo lifestyle for years.
One year later with Redken and this one, I grew 10 inches of stronger hair even with casual trimming, bleaching every other month plus my Brazilian Blowout.
I have natural thick curly but I need to blow dry after every wash.
THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL ITEM IN MY LIFE SINCE THEN. I'm getting my hair back.
Jb from Philadelphia
Did something in this product change? I used to swear by this shampoo/conditioner but lately the bottles smell like that L'Oréal kids no tears shampoo I grew up on 🤢and I'm losing so much hair each wash. Not the same—definitely switching
Wanted to love but acne galore
Ccce from Ohio
The acne i after just one use of this product was unreal. Massive cystic pimples. Not to mention it is the WORST smelling shampoo I have ever used. The perfume scent is so incredibly overpowering. It made my couch and blankets absolutely reek. I'm not sure who wants a shampoo that smells so awful and gives horrible cystic acne. I'll be returning ASAP. don't waste your money.
Saved my hair!

Since using this my hair has never felt so soft and looked so healthy! My new favorite I'm so glad I found this. Smells so amazing as well!
Abeautyjunkie from Virginia
I purchased this shampoo following a big chop to help maintain healthy, shoulder length hair. The shampoo and conditioner smell absolutely divine and I enjoy how soft and shiny my hair feels after using it.
My absolute favorite

I have been getting blonde highlights for the past 10+ years and this is the best shampoo I've ever tried that helps repair my dead ends.
Not good for my hair
Esalas from Broken Arrow, OK
I was so excited to try as it ha great reviews but it was horrible on my hair. Made my hair super dry and it was falling off in badly with every wash. I decided to use as I have bleached my hair but it was really bad. Made my hair super dry
Bridget from Michigan
I have tried every shampoo/conditioner duo ever that says it'll help over-processed and damaged hair. Recently I was using Redken products and while those are great, it made my scalp incredibly itchy and my hair became adjusted to it over time, meaning my hair was looking rough again. Switched to pureology and oh my gosh my hair has NEVER BEEN HEALTHIER! It is so shiny, so bouncy, it actually looks like it has life to it and it feels so good. It never looked like this with Redken. I will continue to use this stuff forever!
Smells nice, lathers nice, leaves a film
Kris from Maryland
Has a very nice smell and lathers up nicely. However, my hair feels dirty sometimes after use. It leaves a film on my roots.
Kara from MI
This was so highly disappointing the smell is like a cheap child's fruity flavor. For the extremely high price tag I expected a sophisticated adult smell. I'm confused on why the smell when bought in the USA is different than if bought in the UK there's is a lavender/vanilla. It does nothing special for my hair, definitely not worth the price only kept because it was on sale and was able to use points. Gave it away!
Celeste from Turlock,CA
Absolutely love this! It's expensive but worth it. A little goes a long way. It smells absolutely amazing! My hair felt amazing also. I will continue buying for sure.
A hair miracle

My journey with pureology began after I bleached my hair. I used to use Redken products and absolutely loved them (still do!) but after a few bleaching sessions my hair was not having it with me anymore. Going from black to blonde took several sessions which is no doubt damaging. Since Ive started using Pureology, Ive regained strand strength and my hair has been on its way to recovery.

Lo from Whittier, CA
I have finally found a shampoo that is good for color treated hair (no sulfates), is moisturizing, smells amazing, and leaves my hair feeling good again. It's also nice because I've been washing my hair less frequently(about every other 4 days) and I just need one wash with this shampoo and my hair is non greasy. It's pricy but definitely worth it.
Best product I have used all year
Aislinn from Fayetteville, NC
Use a pea size amount! A very little goes a long way. I can truly go multiple days with out washing my hair because I don't have any build up with this product.
Yay my hair is so soft
Han from florida
Bought this shampoo and conditioner recently when it was on sale after seeing good reviews and hearing influencers talk about it. I've used it for almost 2 weeks and after the 3rd use (exactly 1 week) my hair was noticeably softer and nicer!! Now I don't think i'll ever be able to stop using this brand. I'm very picky with shampoo bc I have a dry scalp that can sometimes get flaky with some shampoos and right now it's not a problem! My hair just looks better, what was I doing without it?

Wow! I love it!
Long hair from Alabama
I have tried many different types of high end shampoos and conditioners and I was hesitant to try it until it was on sale. I have long hair with balayage which dried out my hair. This made my hair feel and look so much better. Less frizz and felt so silky. I made my boyfriend touch my hair like three times after using this bc it felt so much better!
Ari from FL
struggled with finding a shampoo & conditioner that doesnt dry out my fine gray hair. the search is over! purple shampoo helps with brass but is not a daily. only need a very tiny amount.
I'm excited to have found this stuff
Stacey from WA
I have used this for just one week and can already notice the difference. Less breakage, easier to brush through when wet, if I dry my hair, it lays smoother (minimum frizz). I have fine and brittle over processed medium length hair, been searching for a "shhhh" product for my hair, finally found it.
Heathmarie from Winston Salem
I have thin, oily, damaged hair. It's truly a hard combo to fix. What do you do when your hair is damaged BUT it gets oily so easily and weighed down from most shampoos.... this helped that a lot. It smoothes and gently hydrates without weighing the hair down. My hair is happy. It smells so good too. I always hated how high end shampoos smelt weird while cheap drug stores smelt so good. This smells better than Pantene. Lasts when your hair is dry too which I love! Sad to think my hair will eventually become use to this and I'll have to switch it up when this bottle is done, but it definitely will not be a goodbye!!
Love this scent!
Elva from North Hollywood, CA
I've been using the "hydrate" version of this brand but I've been using "strength" this last week in combo with the conditioner and leave in spray... and I love it!!! The scent is much more pleasant and it leaves my hair nice and shiny! The only thing you won't get is the tingly feeling from the conditioner that you get from hydrate. I've now started rotating strength and hydrate as I read the tip on puerology's website so we'll see how it goes.

Love this product it has done wonders for my hair! I used matrix products before this and this so much better! Thought the price point is a little high, I dont mind paying it because of how well it worked for me!
Finally, a True Shampoo!
greengracejess from undisclosed
Finally, Im so glad Ive landed on a shampoo thats right for me after a couple years of filtering through product after product. Pureology is a winner for sure!! After washing just once with the Strength Cure shampoo, my hair already felt like it was more thoroughly cleansed. I personally love the smell of the product, and I often am irritated by fragrances and experience migraines from them. Thank goodness this isnt too harsh or strong! I love that this shampoo is sulfate-free, yet it still lathers beautifully!! My hair has come out SO much softer & shinier since using Pureology; I honestly cant stop touching it :) Strength cure for sure!!
mercedess21 from undisclosed
I have extremely long, thick, curly, and horse-like hair. It is very hard to maintain it most days if i dont just throw it in a bun, BUT this is the only thing that seems to work for me to get my knots out! The only thing i do not like is the smell. The aftermath of this product though is amazing.
This made my hair so soft!!
Tati from Delaware
I have NEVER used a shampoo that didn't make my hair feel dry after using it ! I used this shampoo and my hair felt SILKY! Money well spent. Smells amazing and feels GREAT!
