L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil, R159.95


What they say: A unique oil formula that transforms dry hair into silk.
The award winning ELVIVE Extraordinary oil is the perfect companion for ultimate hair care, style and protection. Inspired by the extraordinary power of 6 rare flower oils, it provides incredible nourishment for all hair types and won’t weight your hair down.

What I say: Firstly I love the shape of the bottle! The oil smells amazing too!

As far as the formula goes, like with other oils I’ve tried, it isn’t Moroccanoil. It’s a very close second to it (much better than the Dove and TRESemme ones), but still doesn’t penetrate quite as well as Moroccanoil.

But, having said that, it definitely does make my hair feel softer and silkier, especially when I use it as a pre wash treatment. (Leave it on dry hair for 15 minutes before washing.) And because it’s so much cheaper than Moroccanoil, you can use more of it, more often.

It controls frizz, adds shine, protects from sun, salt and chlorine damage.

I would highly recommend it to anybody wanting to add shine, nourish and moisturise her hair. Which, let’s face it, is everyone.
