Moral of the story: don't use Greek yogurt on your hair in an attempt to do a moisturizing yogurt hair mask.
Now for that review.
L'Oreal has so many commercials for their haircare. I noticed they've done away with their EverSleek commercials in the States, which featured Jennifer Lopez. They have been focusing on the Total Repair 5 line instead.
Everything features black and yellow-gold packaging. Simple! The bottles aren't huge like say, a TreSemme bottle, and the Damage Erase balm comes in a nicely sized tub with a good sized mouth. You can easily dip your hand in to scoop out some product.
The shampoo was very creamy and pleasant! The whole line has an actually nice scent. It's a soft scent, bit overwhelming; you'll smell it when you come out of the shower. The shampoo lathered up nicely and felt so good on my hair. The conditioner I loved too, super creamy. It said to leave it in for 3 minutes or so, which is what I did. LOVE! My hair felt so wonderfully soft when it rinsed out.

Would I recommend it for repairing damage? I think that depends on the damage of your hair! For instance, mine was feeling dry. This will most definitely rehydrate your hair if you use the whole line (or just the balm. I really like it)! The best means to care for damaged hair are trimming split ends, not using heat all the time, and a slew of other things I can't think of off the top of my head right now.
You can find the Total Repair 5 line at your grocery store, drugstore and wherever you buy L'Oreal haircare. Ulta carries the line, with the shampoo and conditioner going for $4.99 each, the balm and the Multi-Restorative Dry Oil for $6.99. Ulta also has travel-sizes of the shampoo and conditioner for $1.29! If you want to try them before going for the full-size, go for it at Ulta ~
