L’Oréal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Crystal Sparkling Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about L’Oréal Elvive Nutri Gloss Crystal Sparkling Shampoo & Conditioner. These products claim to provide weightless moisture to make hair feel ‘velvety soft and as light as a feather’. In addition, these products promise to make hair extra shiny by smoothing the hair surface to boost light reflection. Alrighty! Now let me tell you if this hair care combo is any good.

L’Oréal Elvive Nutri Gloss Crystal Sparkling Shampoo is the prettiest shampoo ever. It’s a clear gel that shimmers and sparkles. It looks gorgeous! I think this shampoo cleanses my hair and scalp nicely. However, for some reason it causes my hair to tangle up which isn’t the best prep for a conditioner…

L’Oréal Elvive Nutri Gloss Crystal Sparkling Conditioner is an average conditioner. I think it’s not good enough to detangle the knots that the matching shampoo causes. No matter how much conditioner I use, I always end up with at least 2 messy knots, so I have to double-condition those knots, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to detangle them at all…

All in all, I think these two products are just OK. I don’t think that my hair looks shinier than usual, and I also don’t think that my hair feels smoother. Saying this, I’m happy that these two products don’t grease up my hair.

Will I buy these products again? Yes – because I want to do an experiment! L’Oréal’s Nutri Gloss Luminiser products made my hair feel super soft and silky. However, they made my hair go greasy rather quickly. So they did the opposite of what the Nutri Gloss Crystal products did. Because of this I want to find out if the Luminiser shampoo + Crystal conditioner and the Crystal shampoo + Luminiser conditioner would be better match-ups.

L’Oréal Elvive Nutri Gloss Crystal Sparkling Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml each for £4.50 each. But they’re almost always on special (half price, BOGOF, 2 for £5, etc.) somewhere. I always (!) wait for half price or BOGOF offers! 🙂
