Daily grooming and hair styling tools with intense heat can damage hair. L’Oréal Paris’s Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm is reportedly formulated to improve the condition of damaged hair.
The balm acts as a rinse-out hair mask that is claimed, after just one use, to impart visible results for healthier, smoother, revived hair even after a year's worth of damage.
This treatment targets five signs of damage–split ends, weakness, roughness, dullness and dehydration. Its key ingredients include candelilla wax, glycerin and arginine to help moisturize and strengthen the hair.
The thick, yellow-colored formula has a light floral scent. According to consumer reviews in Allure, “after 5 minutes with it on, dry, fried and frizzy hair looks impressively shinier, stronger and smoother. It's the perfect fix for anyone with overprocessed, overstyled hair."
For optimal results, after shampooing, users apply the balm to wet hair and massage through to ends, leaving it for 3-5 min before rinsing. For continuously visible repair, it is recommended to use every day.
