I've been using the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil for the last few weeks. Actually bought it before I went on holiday when I noticed it was on offer in Boots - think it was £6.99 rather than £9.99 (for a large 100ml bottle) - so couldn't resist. It comes in two options, one for 'all hair types' and one for 'coloured hair'. I went for the coloured hair option as I'd had my hair highlighted.
Some information directly from the L'Oreal Paris Website -
"Inspired by the extraordinary power of 6 precious flower oils, the laboratories at L’Oréal have created a perfectly balanced oil with a texture so absorbing that it instantly penetrates and adjusts to the specific needs of each hair type to provide perfect care."
A good couple of drops (or just one pump to be exact) is the amount needed for my hair, being super-fine and all that. Apparently the trick to applying hair oil is to rub well into your hands until it resembles a sheen and then apply. I just distribute it mainly through the usual mid-lengths and ends and blow (or rough) dry - then use the tiniest amount afterwards to smooth down. I've also used it a few times as a pre-treatment for colour, as suggested on the bottle, it washed out fine and didn't leave any residue. It doesn't have a much of a smell - just very slightly sweet if anything.
I have to say this stuff is bloomin' marvellous - considering it's an oil it doesn't weigh my hair down and leaves it smooth and de-frizzed. It just seems to make my hair easier to manage and I don't have to straighten as much - just my fringe and the ends (yesterday I didn't use them at all - result!). The old barnet was desperately in need of a cut (thanks goodness I've had that done now!) and this helped it from looking too straggly and frazzled on the ends. I've always struggled with the balance between volume and condition, I still need to apply my plumping powder (which I also love) if I want bigger hair but as far as the conditioning side of things is concerned this is a real winner and my highlights don't seem to have faded or gone brassy. Have also used a small amount when drying my little girl's huge amount of fine hair and it's worked a treat helping to keep it frizz free! You know that something works for you when you find yourself constantly reaching for it. I will definitely re-purchase. Overall opinion - great product, great value for money.
