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).

L’Oréal Elvital Color-Vive Deep Conditioner

L'Oreal Colour Intense ConditionerHi there! Today’s post is about the L’Oréal Elvital Color Vive Deep Conditioner I found at Family Bargains a while ago.

I love trying products from other countries. But I always check which country a product is from. This deep conditioner is from Denmark. As Denmark adheres to the same regulations for health and beauty products as the other EU countries, I was happy to try this product.

So, how’s the product? I think this is an amazing deep conditioner. It detangles my hair easily without weighing it down. And it makes my hair feel incredibly soft and silky. Love it!

Here’s the best thing: This deep conditioner is meant to be left on for 1 minute only before it has to be rinsed out. I leave it on for 3 to 4 minutes while I brush my teeth. But it’s good you don’t have to leave it on for half an hour or so.

I would definitely recommend L’Oréal’s Elvital Color Vive Deep Conditioner – not just because I paid 99p only – but because it’s a great product!
