I agree with those who remarked that the packaging is awkward and difficult to handle. I use it in the shower and dropped it with the top off several times. I have thin, older hair that is no longer colored or permed. I started using this product in June, 2017 and am finishing up my first container as I use it weekly. I have purchased a new container.

I find this product to be a wonderful addition to my hair care regimen. It gives volume back to thinning hair as well as helps to promote less breakage. I find the cost to be reasonable, especially since it has lasted me 6 months. After the first three applications, i began using less product and found it worked as well as a heavier application.

I recommend this product for older women who struggle with thinning hair and breakage.

I use thick masks/balms as my regular conditioner. This is a good one among the drugstore options. It left my hair moisturized and soft. "Damage-erasing" is a bit of marketing hype. I didn't notice any changes in my hair. It's just a decent thick conditioner.

I don't like the packaging. In the shower, the tub is extremely slippery and easily dropped. The fragrance is also overwhelming.

Overall, it's a good product, but not amazing or exceptional. I would buy again if I ran out of my conditioner and needed something from the drugstore.

My hair: Fine in texture, but I have alot of hair. Wavy, dry, somewhat frizzy, blonde (color-treated).

It's OK, nothing special. It works like a thick conditioner, I didn't notice any dramatic changes in my hair (thin, curly, color-treated, prone to breakage). Why L'Oreal decided to put this in a peanut butter jar-like tub is beyond me, this makes it incredibly inconvenient for shower use. Also, like most L'Oreal products, it's very strongly scented (this is why I don't use most of their face creams). The smell and the packaging are the main reasons why I won't buy this again.

This is a good drug store deep conditioner, and I used it religiously for quite some time. I have fine, color treated hair that always needs more moisture, and this was my go-to when I still purchased products from L'Oreal. I do not think that it actually repairs or erases any damage, but it does infuse a lot of moisture into the hair to replace whatever is lost through coloring, heat styling, etc. I really like the pudding-like consistency, as it felt like it was really coating the hair without feeling heavy and still rinsed cleanly. Even when my hair was long I could get at least 5-7 uses out of a tub, so it was fairly economical as well. I won't repurchase again due to L'Oreal's animal testing policy.

Meh, I purchased a tub from Target and had higher expectations. Got better results from my "It's a 10" regular conditioner.

L'Oreal, ever the fake out, issued this same product under it's salon line called Absolue. I have been using it for years - it's very good but now discontinued. But wait .... here it shows up as Total Repair and a fraction of the cost. It's good but who wouldn't be annoyed with them for the games they play with consumers. And this is not the only product - compare the LancΓ΄me mascaras to the L'Oreal.mascaras.

I'm usually hesitant of using hair balms since my hair gets oily pretty quickly, but this product is amazing! I use it every other day and it makes my hair so soft! I don't even have to use conditioner when I use this. It makes my hair look really good when it's dry and I got mine for $7 at Walgreen's. I've noticed that it's fixed a lot of my problems, like the dryness and such. Loreal definitely hit it out of the park with this one.

I really like this deep conditioner. I have 4a hair that is about armpit length stretched. I use this product by saturating my hair with it after shampooing. I then place a plastic bag or conditioning cap over my head, then a turbie twist-type towel, then I let it sit for 30 minutes to 2 hours. When I use this conditioner, my hair is left "juicy" and full of moisture. I don't think it actually "repairs up to 1 year of damage in one use", but I do think it reduces the look of damage. My hair feels a bit stronger and definitely feels more moisturized. I have repurchased this product and will continue to do so.

So far this is the only product in my price range that helped my dry over processed hair. My ends were literally breaking off whenever I brushed it and t felt sur gummy when wet. This stuff saved me from chopping all of my hair off. I swear by this stuff.
