My thoughts: As I told you in my last wash, I noticed that my hair had been shedding and that I had some breakage. I tried a few other deep conditioners to combat the issues, but nothing seemed to be helping. I sent away for a sample of the the Loreal Total Repair 5 shampoo, conditioner, and damage erasing balm. I really liked all three products, but felt that the damage erasing balm was more beneficial to me than the conditioner. I'm not really one to purchase products without checking out reviews on the product website, blogs, and YouTube.
The product claims to fight the signs of damage: split ends, weak, rough, dull and dehydration in the hair, as well as, repair up to one year of damage in one use. I don't know if the claim about one year of damage is totally true, but it does help. I personally know that my hair was looking and feeling very dull on the ends and they were rough. There was a noticeable difference in my hair after the first use.
Honestly: I must say after the first use my ends felt so much better and I had about 4 strands of shed hair. I've used the product twice and when I combed it through my hair there was so much slip and no tangles. My hair actually feels so much stronger, healthier, and full of body. I don't notice or feel rough, dull, and dry ends. It left my hair with a nice smell, not overpowering. I'm going to continue to use this product as I grow my hair back out from BSL to MBL. So, if you are suffering from the 5 signs of damage I would say the Loreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm is definitely worth a shot. If you're not sure you want to purchase it without trying first, check out the website to see if you can receive a sample first. My hair is silky smooth after each use and it's a keeper!!!!
Until next time, much love!!!
