L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner Review

L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner

When I think of leave in conditioner (and trust me I think of it a lot, my life is just so exciting), I think of light weight, liquid sprays. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. As someone with long and thick hair I often feel that leave in conditioners could do with being a little more intense and dare I say it nourishing. If you don't mind applying product to your hair with hands then the new L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner should go top of your shopping list.

As mentioned above unlike most leave in conditioners the L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner is a cream that you apply to the hair much like you would a traditional hair conditioner. The only difference is you don't rinse it out. For that reason alone, I do suggest approaching this product with a less is more mantra as this is a fairly deep conditioner, it would be easy to over do it and weigh down the hair. I tend to apply a coin sized dollop (a little goes a long way) into the palms of my hands, rub together and then apply to sections of my hair - repeating if necessary. If you have finer hair or perhaps are using the L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner for de-tangling purposes, opposed to extra nourishment I see no real reason to why you couldn't mix a little of the product with water and create your own conditioning spray?

What sets L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner aside from other products of its type is the fact that it contains smoothing hair oil, a blend of 6 flower oils no less. The name of the product somewhat gives it away, yes this conditioner does contain the original L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil but without the greasy texture. I have very dry hair thanks to years of bleaching and general abuse and find my hair absorbs the oil far better within the conditioning cream than it does a solo hair oil - bizarre I know.

Despite claims of the contrary L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner is a fairly thick and heavy conditioner, don't get me wrong hair that is parched will lap it up. As a matter of a fact I truly think it to be one of the best leave in conditioners I have tried but would not recommend for normal nor fine hair types. If you have thick, dry or curly hair you need to give this a whirl, I would deem this to be a great after sun treatment too as really does deeply condition. I have also found that since using the  L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner my hair has appeared to look more smoother and dare I say shine; not to mention it makes de-tangling a breeze - the comb just glides through my prone to knotting locks.

This could be the leave in conditioner to end all leave in conditioners - I've fallen thick and fast, if this suits your hair needs then promise me you'll try L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil in Cream Leave in Conditioner at least once!

  8. I love the idea of a leave-in conditioner but they always seem to weigh my hair down and I end up looking like Wednesday from the Adams Family or something lol. It seems like a great option. I may pick it up anyway and use it on days when my hair is up or I'm having a "home day".

  9. This timing is miraculous!!! Just this morning I was stood in front of my mirror saying to myself "yeah, you should probably look into getting a leave-in if you want to keep growing your hair out."! Yes, I talk to myself and yes, I need this in my life :)
