This summer, one of my best friends was this hair oil : L'Oreal Parisl Elvive Extraordinary Oil -- the summer version!
Sun and salt usually make my hair extremely dry -- and this summer I was trying out the L'Oreal Paris Casting Sunkiss Tropical, which is basically bleach in a spray bottle. And my hair really appreciated me using this!
And yes, I know it's almost winter now. But I wanted to keep using this to see if I should add this step to my "hair routine", or if this product is something that I only need during the summer.
First of all: packaging -- I really like the gold-ish transparent bottle. And I think the blue-sky pump just gives it super summer-y feel. I really like it. Oh and yes, it's actually nice that iit comes with a pump -- makes application so much easier and mess free!
This oil is different for other oils I've tried. I don't know if it is a "dry" oil, but for sure feels like it. The texture is slightly different from what I was expecting -- it's really liquid-y, but when you rub it on your hands it feels dry. It doesn't make my hair greasy or sticky, just smoother and looking more nourished. It is absorbed almost immediately. It doesn't even make my hands feel greasy after applying it!
During the summer, I would apply it on the beach -- after letting my hair dry for a while. Now, I'm basically doing the same thing. I use about two/three pumps and I apply it only on the ends of my dry hair -- because that's here I need it the most. It smells really good, but the smell is not overpowering. I can still smell my shampoo after using this.
I really think this helps protecting my hair. I feel like it actually works well against the heat. My hair feels really nice after applying this, and I feel like this is really nourishing my ends.
Totally worth trying out.
