Review: L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

This is not a new prodcut but I’ll tell you about it anyway – I don’t really experiment with my hair!  I bought L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil as an alternative to Kérastase Elixir Ultime. It’s a third of the price and for my hair, it is actually better.

It’s a non-greasy gel-like blend of oils which has many uses.  I use it after using curl cream, to keep my curls soft and moisturised, and to add a little shine.  Two pumps tend to do the job on my long hair, focusing on the middle and the ends my hair. It has a luxurious smell – subtle and adult, maybe with a hint of musk. No fruit or flowers here!

It says on the bottle than you can use it before shampooing for “luxurious nourishment”, before styling for protection and as a finishing touch for “sumptuous softness and luxurious shine”.  I’ve only ever used it as a finishing touch and I have to say, I do agree with final claim!

It says it is suitable for all hair types and has a blend of 6 flower extracts.  Here are the ingredients:

It is thicker than the Elixir Ultime which is probably why it is better for my dry, curly hair.  I also think it absorbs into my hair better.  Both hair oils last for a very long time so as this one is about £10, it is amazing value for money. This now has a permanent place in my hair regime.

This was in the wrong place in the shop but I grabbed it anyway.  I’m so glad I did!
