L'Oréal Elvive Damage Care Rinse Out Masque
Advantages: detangles my hair, smoothes it, makes it look healthier
Disadvantages: doesn't make it look healthier for more then a few days
As I regularly get highlights put in my hair, and I also blow dry and straighten my hair quite a lot too, its not a surprise that sometimes my hair can get very dry and damaged. When I normally get a shower, I just use shampoo and conditioner, but what I found is that after I had applied the shampoo, I never used a conditioner strong enough to detangle my knotty messy hair. Well I decided it was time for a change, and one of my friends had told me about hair masks that you can buy which you leave on for a few minutes and it detangles and smoothes your hair out! So the next day I popped down to my local Boots, and saw that there was a deal on the L'Oreal elvive hair products. So I bought this hair mask, and hoped that my damaged hair would start seeing improvement ASAP! I got it on a deal which was 2 for £5, so I got that and another L'Oreal elvive product, which I think was quite a good deal. There is also 330ml in the tub.
L'Oreal elvive damage care hair masque claims to 'deeply nourish hair from root to tip. Your hair is strengthened with long lasting protection.' I was excited to try this to see the results! The hair masque comes in a yellow and red tub. The red lid screws off easily, and I am glad that it is in a tub rather then a bottle, as I can quickly get the amount of conditioner out, without having to squeeze out the product, also I can see how much product I have remaining. However one disadvantage of it being in a tub, is that when you try and apply this in the shower, water gets in the tub quite easily, making the product go runny, so you have to be very careful. The conditioner is a whitish colour, and I personally think it smells lovely! I cant quite put my finger on the smell but its just a strong nice smelling smell.
So that night in the shower, I shampooed my hair as normal, and of course after I had used my shampoo, my hair was still knotty messy, and just a tangled mess. So anyway, I turned off the shower, squeezed out the moisture from my hair, and I got out, and went to the mirror so I would be able to see what I was doing properly. And what I did was I scooped out quite a fair sized amount of the conditioner, it was quite a big blob, the conditioner is quite thick and not very runny, but this is good as when you apply it on your hair it doesn't just slide off. I then rubbed it between my fingers, and started running my fingers from the top of my hair right down to the tips of my hair. I did this until my hair was completely covered in the product. Then I got my large comb, and started trying to comb through my hair. At first it was hard to get through my hair, but eventually I managed to comb through my hair from root to tip, I could feel no knots in my hair, and it felt nice and smooth, I couldn't believe I was actually combing through my hair, I had never been able to do that before when my hair was wet and it is normally just too tangled! It says on the container that you should leave this product on for 1-2 minutes, but I did leave it on for about 4, as I wanted it to work quite well. I then got back in the shower to wash off the product, it is very important that you wash off all the conditioner properly, because I have heard cases where if you leave it in and don't wash it off properly then it makes your hair hard and greasy when it dries. Well anyway when I washed off the product my hair felt so smooth and silky!
When I got out the shower I blow dried my hair gently, and when it was dry, my hair did look a lot healthier, my mum even said to me when I went downstairs that my hair looked in a better condition then normal. My hair didn't look as frizzy and dry. I was happy with the result. However I don't know if this product actually improved my hair condition for a long period of time, as when I next washed my hair, I decided not to use this and just use my normal conditioner (as I only wanted to use this around once a week) to see if my hair was still as good quality. Of course it wasn't as easy to comb through, and didn't look as healthy when I had dried it. I would say that L'Oreal Damage care hair masque, is perfect to use to detangle your hair, and make it look healthier for a few days. However it only does last a few days, so I would say if you want it to look healthier all the time, you would have to use it more then once a week. I have been using this product for months now, and it has only just about run out, so I would say it was good value for money!
Overall it detangles your hair, gives your hair a nice smell, and makes it look healthier for a few days, however it does not make it look healthier over a long period of time, you would have to use it regularly.
Thanks for reading my review :)
Summary: detangles, smoothes and impoves healthiness of hair for a few days.
