Review: L’Oreal ELVIVE Extraordinary Oil
Beautifying oil, Multi-usage (For All Hair Types)
I was hesitant to give this oil a try but took a chance and finally got one form the drug store. Its been a couple of months since I have been using it and the results are worth talking about. The surprising fact, the oil can be used in many ways:
1. Use it as a serum:
This is the usual trick, let your hair air dry a bit after shower and apply a few drops before blow drying or using any hot tools this tames frizz and results in a voluminous blow dry.
2. Use it before the shower:
10-20 minutes before washing your hair, take a few drops of oil on your finger tips, massage into scalp lightly and bring it down to the ends. Braid your hair softly and wash after 10 minutes. This gives moisture to dry scalp moreover massaging increases blood circulation which keeps dandruff away. Oiling to be done only once a week or once in two weeks.This works out best in winter days.
3. Use it on dry hair:
Since winter is around the corner my hair become dry and coarse the second day of my hair wash. I take a few drops and apply to the lengths of my hair away from roots then comb or style, they feel fabulous and lustrous.
I was scared to put it before my blow dry but this oil absorbs fast and works fabulously. The oil can weigh down the hair if you apply more than required, for mid-length hair like mine only a drop or two does the job. It washes away easily when applied to roots so a second shampoo run will not be needed.
I definitely look forward to use the newer version of this oil in stores as soon as I am done with this!

Starting September I roll out my favourite August products and they are:
L’Oreal Elvive Extra Ordinary (hair) oil:
I wasn’t expecting much from this drugstore product but it definitely proved me wrong. This product only needs a drop or two and can be applied in damp or dry hair from the length of the hair to the ends. Sometimes I apply it to my roots before washing my hair. I have noticed my hair feel heavier if applied in damp hair hence I dry my hair 70-80% and then apply to the ends before perfecting my blow out.
The Body Shop wooden comb
This is a great comb I have been using for many years. The wood combats dandruff and also helps kill the electricity in the hair around winter time. There are several kinds kept in drugstores but beware they are polished (I actually think they are plastic given a wooden look) that won’t help you one bit.
L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hair spray
I came across the smallest and cutest bottle of hair spray and picked it out to test. It has has a micro diffuser which throws out the finest spray particles and you can still work on your hair. The next day my hair were not oily or stuck like wire which is plus for the product. During the event my hair stayed calm and smelt great.
Beauty UK nail paint
The colour Jade no.52 is such a treat for summers. I want to put it again and again before summers end and it just makes me feel fresh I will definitely be looking out for this one next summers.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O
I was lucky to get hold of this and having been loving the effects ever since I started using it a month ago. It cleans makeup and leaves skin smooth.
Definitely check out the hair products as they will be great for autumn and winter coming right around the corner and keep up to date with me on Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest .
