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.

    I absolutely love Loreal Advanced Shampoo. It cant compare to any other shampoo I have used. Loreal shampoo fully cleans my hair and makes it so soft to where I don't even have to use conditioner anymore as when I use this shampoo it leaves it untangled! Makes my hair feel fuller and cleaner and better!

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

      My hair had been feeling like straw for months. My hair dresser thought it was from the constant use of hair dryers and curling irons.

      I was desperate so I decided to try L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo.

      It was very affordable in the grocery store, and I have been fairly happy with it. It smells okay, not great, but it lathers up extremely well. I have noticed that my hair is MUCH softer. I find myself running my hand through my hair, and I haven't done that in years.

      It claims to add silkiness and shine to the hair, and I can say that it has done exactly that for me. I don't find that it adds any volume or help me style my hair any easier, I still have to use other styling products, but I feel like my hair is much less damaged now.

      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.

      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.
