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 conditoner 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).

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since May, so let me tell you what I bought since then. 🙂
1 T-Zone Rose Gold Peel Off Mask – I don’t know how much this was, but I picked it up at B&M Bargains. So it’s fair to assume it was dirt cheap!
2 Thierry Mugler Alien Flora Futura – this was on sale, £25 only!
3 Derma V10 konjac sponges – these were 99p each, and I bought 3.
4 Primark PS… Face Masks – I bought a number of Primark face masks. I think I bought about 20. Most of them were 80p.
5 L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner – these are the big 400ml bottles, and they were £2.25 each.
6 Bling Pop Firming & Brightening Face Mask with Peach – pack of 10 for £5.99.
7 Nature Love Charcoal Face Mask – pack of 5 for £4.99.
8 Retinol-X Anti Aging Sheet Mask – pack of 5 for £4.99.
9 Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask – pack of 5 for £4.99.
10 Derma V10 Mango Body Butter – this was 99p for a regular 220ml tub.
11 Manhattan Nail Polishes – blue and red. 99p each.
12 Astor Heidi Klum Lipstick – brownish nude colour, £1.75.
12 Daily Defense Pomegranate Shampoo & Conditioner – these are 473ml bottles, and they were £1.25 each!
And I bought 2 more duvet cover sets from Asda. The one on the left was £14, the one on the right was £7 (half price offer, but it’s back to £14 now for the king size).
I’m really pleased with what I bought. I know I picked up a lot of face masks, but everything else is quite reasonable! What have you bought recently? Have you tried any of the products I bought? Would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂
