I was so suprised by this stuff! I used both the shampoo and the conditioner and was so happy with the results the very first time I used it. I have extremely long and thick hair so more often than not, products don't work for my hair. Also finding shampoo and conditioner that works for myself and both of my daughters is also a struggle. One of my girls has thin hair that is easily broken and weighted down and my other girl has thick and long hair that is very prone to tangles and is very hard to detangle and manage. This worked for both of their hair as well as it did for mine. The shampoo is gentle, but cleans hair well. It doesn't weigh hair down and not much is needed to achieve great results. If you use it with the matching conditioner it will work wonders! I've never seen my hair so soft, shiny, easy to brush, and manageable. I highly reccomend both to everyone. It smells very good too! I have to go out and buy more now that I've seen what it does. As we keep using it it feels like our hair is improving and that's a definate plus. I hope they continue to make this or I will be lost. We no longer need additional products to add shine, or make our hair easier to style or make it easier to brush. It's all around a great product and I think everyone should give it a try!

I started using this product last year. It worked really well at first, but after a while I noticed that the effects weren't what they used to be. It lathered really well and cleaned my hair, but seemed to be causing more split end the more I used it. My hair is really oily at the top, but really dry at the bottom. The shampoo revived my hair some, but after using it for about four months I had to quit using it because it was making my hair worse than what it originally was.

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

I love using this shampoo after swimming. I actually feel it hydrating and restoring my hair. Chlorine can do damage, but those that see me don't know I swim because I take care to shampoo thoroughly after my workouts.

Scent
The scent is clean and refreshing. Since I use it after swimming, it is a much more pleasant smell than that of chlorine, and as mentioned earlier, no one can tell that I swim because I thoroughly clean my hair after working out.

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

I have been using the L'Oreal since I got it at a good price with coupons. My hair is colored, gray underneath, and shoulder-length. I love the soft feel that this shampoo gives to my hair. It also seems to protect my hair from the damage of daily blow-drying and flat-ironing. This shampoo has a new follower.

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

My hair tends to look and feel damaged during the hot summer months. I like to spend a lot of time at the beach and it really takes a toll on my hair. It starts too look dry and brittle. I have tried many repair treatments and they usually only work until I wash my hair again. I tried this Loreal product and was amazed at the results. My hair looked great the first time I used it, and still looked great after a few washes. It was soft and smooth looking and my hair look so much healthier. This product also has a great scent that really makes your hair smell great.

Effectiveness
I could tell from the first wash that this product really helped my hair look better. It gave my hair the moisture it was lacking. My hair had much more shine and felt amazing. This product really does work on dry and damaged hair and does not weight your hair down

Scent
The scent is great! It is not too strong, but you can smell it in your hair after you wash.

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

I have very fine hair and use a blow dryer and a curling iron on a daily basis and this shampoo works great in helping minimizing the damage. I first received this as a sample in the mail and had my doubts that it could really help but I think it works great. It smells good and lathers very well. You really only need a small amount in your hair. Now the is the shampoo I use on a daily basis and my hair is smooth and no more fizz and it helps reduce any split ends that may come. I am really amazed as to how soft it makes my hair feel without making it all limp and lifeless. I have also noticed its much shinier than it has even been. It makes styling my hair much easier and don't have to worry about burning the end with the curling iron. It will be very hard for me to ever switch to a different shampoo because I love this one so much.

Effectiveness
Works great. I am totally sold on this shampoo.

Scent
Smells great. Not too strong very nice light scent.

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

A few months ago, I got a perm and afterwards my hair was very damaged. It got very dry and frizzy. I thought maybe I had to cut the ends off. But I decided to buy better shampoo and conditioner to try to treat it before cutting my ends. I bought this product and some other treatment products. As a result, I did not have to cut my ends. This products really helps with damaged hair. It gives your hair a lot of nutrients so it can repair the damaged areas. I also used it with other treatments and I think that helped as well. I also tried to leave the shampoo on for a longer time than I do normally. This does not foam as much as regular shampoo but I think it may be because it has more oily ingredients in it. It may also feel like there is residual left after washing it out, but I think it's just the ingredients that are left to repairing your damaged hair.

Effectiveness
I think this is the most effective shampoo for damaged hair.

Scent
The scent is not very strong or overpowering. It give a nice long-lasting scent that you will like!

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

I have very dry hair from all the coloring. I have had gray hair since I was in my 30's and have been coloring my hair for many years. My hair is very dry, especially right after I color it. I received a free sample of this shampoo in the mail and used it right after coloring my hair. It really helped to rehydrate by hair and kept it from getting any worse.
I used the shampoo and conditioner and it really did a great job to keep my hair from getting any worse.

Effectiveness
I used this shampoo and conditioner after coloring my hair and it did a great job rehydrating my hair. My hair was soft and manageable after using this shampoo and not dry and brittle like it usually is right after being colored. I don't like having to color my hair, but it is good to know that there is a shampoo that will help to keep it from getting excessively dry after coloring.

Scent
This shampoo has a nice clean scent. It isn't too girly or flowery so it would be good for anyone to use.

Good for my damaged hair.

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

This has been very gentle on my heat-damaged locks, especially my ends. My hair develops split ends and breakage very easily and this seems to slow down the process. The formula is very creamy. When I pour it into my hand, it feels more like a conditioner instead of shampoo. It still gets my hair clean though, even when it gets extremely oily after days of not washing. It doesn't dry out the ends of my hair. It actually seems to smooth them a bit. A little goes a long way. A quarter size is enough for short to medium hair, but I use about double that for my very long hair. It gets very bubbly. It smells very nice, kind of like a perfume scent. It smells more like a salon shampoo, which is nice because it's no where near the price of those. It hasn't helped my dandruff at all, so I can't use this all the time. It didn't strip my hair dye color more than normal when it was dyed dark red. It's almost equivalent to using a color-safe shampoo.

Excellent Shampoo

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

Was somewhat unsure about it when this first came out, but after trying it, I love it. My hair had gotten pretty damaged, breaking and lots of split ends. I used the Loreal Restoring Shampoo and noticed a considerable difference in my hair with in the first week. My hair was much smoother, did not have the fly away hair, the frizz. Was much more manageable. My hair was shinny after two uses. After using it for a week, it just felt so much healthier and stronger. I would highly recommend this shampoo for anyone that has any type of damaged hair. Use it for a week and you will see a difference. The second or third use you will actually see a difference. The price is not over the top either, and there is always coupons in the Sunday paper for it, so it can be even more affordable.

Effectiveness
Very effective, works very well. It says restoring and that is what it does. Makes your hair stronger, shinny, smooth.

Scent
Love the scent. Has a very nice clean scent.

L'oreal hits a home run

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

This shampoo is absolutely amazing. I have very long, thick, dark hair that is a pain to keep looking healthy and non frizzy. This shampoo does just that and so much more. The texture is not too heavy so it does not weigh my hair down or make it feel oily in any way. It leaves my hair shiny, silky, smooth and very soft without any strays. I round brush and dry my hair daily and this shampoo is also great at protecting against heat damage, split ends and breakage. It is also safe on all hair types including dyed hair, and it does not fade out the color.

Effectiveness
This shampoo does everything it is advertised to do. It helps to restore my hair back to a healthy shine, provides protection against damage, split ends and breakage and it leaves hair feeling so soft. There is nothing else I have found on the shelves that compares to this product and I have tried many different brands over the years.

Scent
The shampoo smells amazing and leaves a long lasting scent in my hair as well. My kids are always commenting on how great my hair smells.

Comments about L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo:

I really admire this shampoo, it does so many things to restore hair back into being healthy. I have so many split ends, my hair is really dry and dull. Once I started using the Loreal advanced haircare total repair 5 restoring shampoo my hair started to feel a lot stronger instead of being brittle. My hair got back its strength and it was really shiny. My color looked a lot vibrant and my hair felt a lot smoother in texture. My hair didn't feel so dry it felt moisturized and soft. The texture of this shampoo was extremely thick but it lathered up easily and was the perfect amount for my hair. My hair was a lot easier to manage and it had less frizz. I was very pleased with the smell of this shampoo it had a really nice fragrant smell. It deep cleaned my hair from root to tip. I would recommend this to anybody with coarse or dry hair it will restore it back into looking and feeling healthy. This bottle is pretty big so it lasts me a long time which is great because it helps save me money.
