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!
