L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a hair care combo I’m using at the moment – L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner. These products promise to reinforce and to revitalise weak and damaged hair.

L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Shampoo is a creamy white shampoo. It’s gentle, and I’m satisfied that it cleanses my hair properly. It has a pleasant fragrance (a typical L’Oréal fragrance), and I have no complaints really. I think this is a good shampoo.

L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Conditioner detangles my hair reasonably well. In terms of detangling, I’ve had better conditioners but I think this one’s still nice. I’m not sure if it “reinforces” my hair, but I’m happy to report that it doesn’t flatten my hair.

All in all, I think L’Oréal did a good job with these products. They’re serving me well. If you’re interested, L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml each for about £4.99 each. I bought these for half price (special offer, Tesco).

Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the two hair care combos that I’m using at the moment – Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner. These products promise to nourish and protect coloured hair. Are they any good?

I think Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo is really good. It’s a creamy white shampoo. It’s clarifying, but it doesn’t feel harsh at all. The fragrance is very random, but all in all, this is a really good shampoo!

I’m equally happy with Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Conditioner because it detangles my hair with ease. I’ve also noticed that it seems to give my hair a little extra volume which is always welcome! The fragrance is not very special, but I don’t mind this at all.

On the back of the bottles, it also says that these products are vegan and that they were not tested on animals. Good stuff! I would recommend these 2 hair products! Hair Repair Colour Shield Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 300ml each for £1 each (Poundland).

Nutrafix Argan Oil Hair Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Nutrafix Hair Mask With Argan Oil, pro-vitamin B5 and silk protein. This product promises to give hair a natural boost and to leave it hydrated, soft and silky.

The instructions state that this hair mask is meant to be used on towel-dry hair (after washing). You’re supposed to leave the hair mask on for 5 minutes, and you should ideally cover your hair with a warm towel. Then rinse (and condition if you want) and follow with your normal hair routine.

I’ve given this hair mask a try, and I think it’s awful! It turned my hair into a completely unflexible and unmanageable mess, and I had to double-condition (!) my hair to get it back to normal. What a waste of time. And what a waste of water! Oh, and I’ve also lost plenty of hair when I tried to get this rubbish out of my hair. Yikes!

I’ve binned the product after 1 use – but I should have binned it without even opening it! I’ve previously tried another hair mask from this brand, and the result was pretty much the same. Well, I can safely say that I won’t be trying any other poducts from this brand.

However, if you’re interested in this terrible product (maybe you want to prank someone…), Nutrafix Hair Mask With Argan Oil is available as 150ml for £1 (Poundland).

Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve got a hair care post for you today, and it’s about Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo & Conditioner. These products contain keratin serum as well as protein, and they promise to increase the strength and resistance of powerless and exhausted hair.

Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo is simply lovely! The shampoo feels amazing on my head and hair, and it has a cute fragrance which I’d describe as a mix of cotton candy and hairspray. It sounds strange, but the fragrance is… cute! And I really love using this shampoo!

Gliss Magnificent Strength Conditioner is just as great. It smells nice too, and I’m happy with how well it detangles my hair. I’ve also noticed that this conditioner makes my hair feel almost weightless, and that it adds plenty of volume to my hair! Fantastic stuff!

I’m very impressed with these 2 Gliss products. I started to use them right after I’d finished L’Oréal’s disappointing Dream Lengths shampoo and conditioner combo. After 2 days (= 2 uses) of Gliss, my hair looked and felt so much better already! Whilst L’Oréal’s aforementioned products were the worst hair products I used all year, Gliss’ shampoo and conditioner are simply outstanding!

Gliss Magnificent Strength Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 250ml and 200ml, respectively, for £1 each (Poundland, B&M Bargains).

L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products I’m using at the moment – L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner. These products contain keratin, vitamins and castor oil, and they’re aimed at people with long hair (Duh!). The shampoo promises to reinforce fragile hair, and the conditioner claims to detangle hair with less breakage.

L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo is not great. Whilst I think that the shampoo feels cleansing, it also seems to leave a film behind – I think it might be from the castor oil, but I don’t really know. I’ve noticed that the shampoo tangles up my hair. This isn’t great. And there’s the fragrance – I don’t like the strong and dense fragrance (which reminds me of the questionable hairsprays my mum used in the 80s). All in all, I find the shampoo disappointing.

L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner isn’t great either. I don’t like its fragrance, and I don’t think it detangles my hair well. The conditioner has a weird texture, and I need to use quite a bit of product to be able to detangle my hair. And this weighs my hair down! I’m not impressed.

I just looked back at all the hair products I used and finished this year, and this combo is my least favourite! So… I won’t repurchase these 2 products, and I have no interest in trying anything else from L’Oréal’s Dream Lengths collection.

However, if you’re interested, L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner are available as 400ml for £4.99 each. I paid £2.25 each (special offer).

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve got a hair care review for you today. I’ve given Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo & Conditioner a try, and here’s what I think. 🙂

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo feels super gentle, so I think it would be best suited to people with dry or damaged hair. The fragrance is gorgeous. It’s warm and cuddly which is very nice!

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Conditioner is good but not great. It smells nice, and it detangles my hair well. I also think it makes my hair feel soft, so I shouldn’t complain. However, this conditioner seems to flatten my hair. I think this one would be most suited to people with unruly hair.

All in all, I like these 2 products, but I’m only using them twice a week (that’s because of the unwanted flattening effect). The other 5 days I’m using something else. But I will happily continue to use these products, and I might buy them again.

Anovia Replenishing Argan & Marula Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 500ml each for 99p each (Home Bargains).

Kallos Cosmetics Multivitamin Energising Hair Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Kallos Cosmetics Multivitamin Energising Hair Mask with ginseng and avocado oil. This hair mask promises new energy and nourishment for dull hair. Using the hair mask is easy – simply use this hair mask like a regular conditioner, but leave it on for 5 minutes before you rinse it out of your hair.

I’ve been using this hair mask once to twice weekly since the beginning of July, and I think it’s great! It makes my hair feel soft without weighing it down, and it makes my hair look great. I’m glad I bought this hair mask because I’m enjoying it very much!

Kallos Cosmetics Multivitamin Energising Hair Mask is available as a huge 1kg tub. I paid £7.99 (TK Maxx).
