Product Review-Loreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm

Price: $6.99

Purchased At: Walmart

Product Description/Claim: Specially formulated for damaged, over processed and chemically treated hair. This intense luxurious reconstructing balm helps fight the 5 signs of damage: Split ends, weak, rough, dull, and dehydrated.

Instructions on use:  After using Total Repair 5 Shampoo, apply to wet hair and massage through to ends. Leave in for 3-5 minutes. Rinse. To view the ingredients check out the website. (All product information retrieved from the jar and http://www.lorealparisusa.com)

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!!!

  6. For some reason Robin, I am unable to comment on your posts through Bloglovin. Anyway, the next time I go to Walmart, I am going to look for this to see what the ingredients are, cuz the link you provided takes me to the home page and after a few clicks, I gave up. I just didn't feel like hunting around the site for the product. LOL! Seems like it is protein-based though.

  11. Yes, that's how it has been for quite sometime. I have to actually visit your post from my blog list. Anyway, thanks for posting the ingredient list. I see Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol in there. I am not inclined to use hair products that has this ingredient in it, the cetyls and cetearyls are good, but for me, not the Isopropyl. But again, products work differently for everyone. Your hair is as unique as you are. This worked for you, and I am glad that you found something to take care of your problem before it got any worse. Yay! :)

  16. Hi Divachyk~ah that's too bad. It's interesting how unique our hair is and the differences in products that work and don't. I've been checking out your info on banding and I'm going to give it a try next wash ;-)

  18. Butterscotchchick~LOL...yeah I was definitely wondering what this had to do with a deep conditioner. I haven't had any spammers for a while, but I guess they have returned ;-)

  19. Hahahaha! Yes indeed, they are always on the lurk! The thing is - they don't even have the presence of mind and decency to say something that is relevant to the post, and then insert their buffoonery, and play it off smoove! LOL
