Between dying my hair red earlier this year (here), and exposing it to intense sunlight a couple of weeks ago (here), it is, unsurprisingly, pretty dry. Whilst I’m grateful it’s not quite become a hot mess of frizz and split ends, yet, it definitely felt like time to start being a little kinder to my locks, and that’s why L’Oreal’s new(ish) ‘Extraordinary Oil’ caught my eye on a recent shopping trip.
I have to admit, I was a little wary, when I first picked this one up; a lot of hair oils and serums have tended to leave my locks feeling a little greasy, in the past, but my hair was crying out for moisture, so I gave it a go, and I am so pleased I did! I use this both on just-washed hair, and every other evening, on the ends of my hair, before bed, and have had none of that nasty product-y residue that I always associated with these products. Instead, my hair is softer, smoother, and much healthier-looking, and I’ve even had compliments on how good this stuff smells. I honestly can’t think of a downside to the product, and even the price point is budget-friendly.
Would I recommend it? Yes, a thousand times. I can only really vouch for its success on dry/damaged and coloured hair, but it does claim to tame frizz, too, and it definitely smells incredible. I can’t remember the last time my hair looked this healthy, and the results are pretty immediate, too.
I’d recommend applying it on wet hair, first, and then running a small amount through any dry patches every couple of days, before bed, for the best results.
L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil retails for £9.99, and can be purchased from Boots stores nationwide, or their website.
