Pureology Review  

I used to have silky soft, poker straight, long
blond hair as a child. My Grandparents were as
frugal as they come and the only thing I ever used on
my hair was whatever shampoo was the cheapest at
Farmer Jack that Month. It didn't really matter for it
did the trick and the only thing I ever had to worry about
was tangles for with kids and long hair they are bound to
happen. Somewhere in my life I went wrong. My soft, shiny,
smooth beautiful hair turned to dry, coarse, brittle, fly
away hair that if there is the least bit of humidity in the
air looks like Einstein and I share the same stylist. The
worst part of this whole deal is I think I did it to myself.
I was an 80's child and Died my hair every other week, permed
whenever I was bored, and on a daily basis I Blew dry, curled,
used moose, gel and enough Aqua Net to put my own personal
hole in the Ozone layer. The straw I call hair is what I am
left with!

I really didn't think anything would ever be able
to fix the damage I have done to my hair. I had even gave
up daily blow drying and seldom curl any more. In fact
I treat my hair as if it were Gold now for I feel so bad that I
did so much damage when I was younger. I know that the
hair I had then is long gone and it shouldn't matter but the
point is no matter what science says since I did all that to
my hair 25 years ago it has not been the same. Since
then I have only colored my hair and the only products I use are
items that are supposed to repair damage but I have yet
to have any luck. A week or so ago I got the chance to review
the Pureology line of hair products and as always anything to
do with hair I jumped on for I would give my left arm to have the
hair back I had as a child.

From the web site I learned:





The package I received contained 2 shampoos, the Hydrate
and the Super smooth and also the Super Smooth conditioner and
last of all the Hydrate Hair mask. On day one I decided to try the
Super Smooth products. I felt since the shampoo and conditioner
where from the same branch of the Pureology line I should keep
them together for the best results. The first thing I noticed was the
consistency is different. It looked and felt different. In appearance
it looked much thicker but to feel it you really couldn't tell a difference
only that the texture was different, not necessarily thicker. I don't
think it sudded up as much as the last few shampoos I have used
did but I could feel it seeping into my hair and directly onto my
scalp and that was new for my hair is so thick I really have to
scrub to get too my scalp and with this I didn't. I also had to rinse
longer to get it out for it clung to my hair. I don't mean it left
a residue for it didn't but more like it belonged on my hair
and didn't want to leave. Next came the conditioner and it
too felt thicker and this one even looked much creamier. My
hair drank it in and I know you have heard that phrase before
for I have but I never knew what it meant to now. I swear if I
measured how much I applied and say it was 1/4 cup I put on
my hair I can promise you what I rinsed out was only half of that
and there was no product left in my hair for it was absorbed.
I did the full Monty with this stuff and dried my hair to see
if this was as good as it was supposed to be and could tame
my hair when heat was involved and it did. It really did! I was
shocked for I was left with smooth, manageable hair that felt
soft and not dry or greasy like it feels when I use frizz serum to
take care of the dryness. It may not have been as perfect as
my childhood dream hair but it was such a drastic change that
I felt given enough time I might come close to what I had oh,
so long ago! I was more then impressed!

The next day I used the Hydrate and the hair
masque. I can't say I could tell the difference from this Shampoo
to the next but then again it is the same line and the differences
from this shampoo to the other are probably very subtle. If you
lined these up to other shampoos though I would know the difference
in a heartbeat. Now the Masque was very different and very thick
and so thick in fact they give you a pick to help sort through your
hair. I had some problems making sure it went through my hair
due to how long and thick it was but I did manage to get it through
and was thankful for the pick. This needed to be left on for up
to five minutes and I left it on the full five and I also noticed this
was harder to remove from my hair and if I did not rinse well
enough it would leave a residue. I had to be very careful to make
sure I got it all out. I also blew dried my hair with these two
and I will say the extra effort to apply and remove the masque was
worth it when you feel and see the results. My hair is silky and
feels healthy and is not only smooth but you can almost feel the
moisture in your hair. It also left my hair feeling thick and
fresh like it feels right after a hair cut. I really loved how
my hair felt and looked but this would be a ritual I would only
use on special events for it was a lot of effort and a busy
Mom just doesn't have the time to do this on a daily basis.

My final thoughts on the Pureoligy line are it is pricey but
worth the price and delivers on its promises. A green haircare
line that is Natural makes it an even better buy but as a
normal person who does not have a lot of cash to throw around
I would buy this and keep it for special occasions. Not necessarily
a coveted night out with your Love but maybe date night, even if
it is spend at home with a rented movie and some popcorn. I
would not want to pay the price to buy this more then once a
month but I would also not want to live with out it. As most hair
products go with my hair I tend to use 3 times as much as the
normal person and a bottle of shampoo averages about 6 uses
for me so this would be something I would use once a week or so
even less often with the Masque. I would be more then willing
to give up a weekly cup of Starbucks to fit this into my
Budget for it truly is that good!
Five ***** for me!


What next?

    Pureology has a huge variety of products aimed at fixing all kinds of hair problems while protecting any color treatments done to your hair. They are kind of expensive, but sound like really good products.

    Pureology sounds like a great product! I would love to try out the Concentrated shampoo and conditioner. Just so it will last longer.

    I recieved a free sample of Pureology awhile back and really loved it. Unfortnately, the way my family goes thru shampoo & conditioner, I can only afford Suave. Perhaps I should buy some of the good stuff and hide it. That's an idea.

    I couldn't believe it when I read this blog post...your hair sounds EXACTLY like mine!! As a child (and into my teens), my hair was also very smooth and poker straight. However, in the last few years, not only is my hair now much dryer -- it is also very coarse and I am constantly fighting with the frizzies.

    After trying numerous brands and countless products, I have started to lose hope in finding something that would actually tame and revitalize my hair. Your review on the Pureology product line has really brought a glimmer of hope back for me!
