L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

Hi Everyone, a quick review for you today. Some time last year I picked up the L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil, but I have only been using it on a regular basis for the past month or so. So I figured now would be a good time to let you all know what I think.

First of all I love the packaging, its made from very thick and heavy glass making it look and feel really luxurious. And the smell is gorgeous which is probably down to the fact it is made up of 'a precious blend of 6 flower extracts'

Now for the product itself. It can be used in three different ways -
before shampooing for luxurious nourishment
before styling to protect and transform the hair 
and as a finishing touch for softness and shine

I've used the oil a few times in each way and I love them all. I mostly use it as a heat protectant or a finish and it leaves my hair beautifully soft. I think my hair has really benefited from using this regulary because even when I don't use it, my hair is much softer than it has ever been. It doesn't make my hair greasy or weigh it down at all, which I was really concerned about before picking it up. In my opinion this is a fantastic product and anyone could benefit from it. The one I have is suitable for any hair type and there is another variation for those with colour treated hair. I decided to go for the first one, even though I do have coloured hair, simply because I'm trying to grow out the colour and was hoping this may speed up the process. So far the colour has faded but I couldn't possibly say if it is down to this oil or not. At £9.99 its brilliant value for money and will last you an extremely long time, definitely worth purchasing!

One last thing. I have only ever used this hair oil. So I unfortunetly can't compare it to the more expensive options out there. I'm looking at you Moroccan Oil, I've been dying to get that for such a long time! And although I probably will try out a few more to see if I can find better, if your a first timer with hair oils like I was and don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of money I would strongly recommend getting this to try out.

As always thank you for reading,
Much Love Gemma xo.
