L’Oréal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Masque

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product that I’ve been using once a week since early May – L’Oréal’s Fibrology Thickening Masque. This product promises to expand hair from within, thus increasing the diameter of every single hair. L’Oréal also says that the thickening effect is long-lasting and buildable. This sounds fantastic! But does it work? If you read on, I’ll let you know.

This mask is easy to use. It’s supposed to be used instead of a regular conditioner – you just need to leave it on for 2 to 3 minutes before rinsing it out.

I’ve used this mask several times, but I’m not impressed because this mask feels like ‘product’ in my hair even after it’s rinsed out. I also don’t see or feel any immediate thickening effect. The only thing I can feel right away is that, as soon as my hair is blow-dried, it feels crunchy.

But whilst there’s no immediate thickening effect, there is, without doubt, a delayed thickening effect which seems to kick in after about 18 to 24 hours. Unfortunately I can’t appreciate the delayed thickening effect because I wash my hair every day, so I won’t benefit from products which (claim to) start working after 24 hours.

I will continue to use this hair mask because I can hardly give it away now, and I don’t want to be wasteful, so I won’t throw it away. Maybe I should treat my husband to a thickening hair mask every now and then! 😀 L’Oréal’s Fibrology Thickening Masque is available as 300ml for £5.09. I paid £2.49 (better than half price offer).

  1. Expanding hair from within? That sounds like a bunch of crock… 😛
    I’m using a L’Oreal mask right now which I’m liking – it’s their Total Repair Mask which helps to keep my ends looking healthy and doesn’t weigh it down.

  2. I used to wash my hair every day. I stopped about 3 years ago and started using dry shampoo on the days between washes. Now my hair is “trained” to go up to 3 days between washes. As a result, my hair has grown out a lot faster and is a little bit healthier. My over processed ends are another story but I use a mask from Redken once a week and it helps a bit.

  3. I never quite understood that: why would the results come in after a day? I tried a conditioner ages from the fibrology series, and there were only the same effects that you described here…
