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! 🙂

Hi there! As I’m using different shampoos and conditioners all the time, I sometimes forget old favourites – like L’Oréal’s Elvive Colour Protect Shampoo and Conditioner. However, I’ve now bought these two products again – and I remembered why I always loved them so much.
The shampoo is great. It smells pleasant and it cleanses my hair and my scalp nicely. The conditioner is one of the best I’ve ever used – second only to Herbal Essences’ Classics conditioners. What I love about the conditioner is that it detangles my hair nicely and that it doesn’t weigh my hair down – just the way I like it. 🙂
I also noticed that these two products really help maintain the intensity of my hair colour after I’ve dyed my hair. Normally the colour bleeds quite a bit for a few washes after I’ve dyed my hair – but these two products made a huge difference! Well done, L’Oréal!
I would definitely recommend L’Oréal’s Elvive Colour Protect Shampoo and Conditioner to anyone with coloured hair. If you want to hold on to your hair colour for as long as possible, you really should try these two products!
The shampoo and the conditioner are available as 250ml for £2.99 and 400ml for £3.99. This is really good value. However, there’s usually at least one supermarket or drugstore chain that runs a half price or BOGOF promotion on the big bottles. So keep your eyes peeled for the best offer! 🙂

Hi there! I just started to use L’Oréal’s Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner again. I haven’t had these ones in ages – because whenever there’s a half price or BOGOF offer, one of the two products is always out of stock. But I was lucky the other day – so I bought a few L’Oréal shampoos and conditioners for half price.
Now let’s get to these products. The reinforcing shampoo is one of my favourites. It cleanses my scalp and my hair without irritating my skin. I love the shampoo and I’ll buy it again. The conditioner is quite good too. I remember it being thinner and easier to use. But it’s still a very decent product that conditions and detangles my hair well.
I think this shampoo and conditioner combo really helps with certain hair loss issues. It won’t sort out hair loss caused by medical conditions or hormones and the likes. But whenever I use these two products, I notice a huge difference in how much hair I’m losing – from day one. I don’t know how L’Oréal did it, but they’ve done a great job with these products.
I would definitely recommend this shampoo/conditioner combo – regardless of whether your hair needs strengthening or not. L’Oréal’s Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 250ml for £2.99 each, and 400ml for £3.99 each.
