Loreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum Review
With the start of monsoon season there is a great respite from roasting heat but at the same time rise in humidity level is making hair unmanageable. After every wash my hair used to look more dull and rough. In spite of oiling and conditioning, its heath continued to deteriorate. Tired of not seeing any improvement in hair health, I preferred to go out with unwashed oily hair to shampooed rough hair. Honestly, I do not like to use heat or chemical treatments to style my hair. Recently, when I was on the verge of giving up to heat treatments (to reduce fizziness) an SA recommended to use ’Loreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum’. I did not give a second thought to try it out as that would have been my last alternative to save the hair from unwanted heating tools.
What the product says:
– Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum is a daily leave-in treatment that nourishes and smoothens your hair from root to tip.
– When applied it instantly attaches itself to damaged areas, repairs and unifies the hair‘s surface, creating a protective shield against further damage and split ends.
My Take on ‘Loreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum’
Loreal hair serum comes in a small flip open bottle, which can be easily carried over in a handbag or makeup kit without any fear of dripping. Every time I am travelling I carry it in my cosmetic kit, and it does not spill at all. The serum has oily texture with mild fragrance that does not overpower my shampoo’s fruity fragrance.
After shampooing, when my hair gets semi dry I divide it into two halves. Put coin size quantity on my palm, rub them together and apply on one half of my hair along the length of hair (sparing roots and scalp).Then I repeat the same procedure with another half while softly massaging hair till my palms are entirely or partially dry. After 2-3 minutes, when I detangle my hair the detangling job feels way easier in comparison to when there is no serum.
Coming to efficacy, when serum laden hair gets dry it looks less frizzy. It becomes softer and smoother. Though this is an oil serum yet it does not make hair look oily or weighed down. Rather hair looks freshly shampooed in a manageable manner. After every use, it imparts a subtle shine to hair that makes it look healthier. Now, I am not afraid of shampooing my hair and keeping them loose , and I do not even have to make my hair pass through those heating rods .
How to apply ‘Loreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum’
For best results, use on towel dried, damp hair. In both the below scenarios, do not rinse. Just leave in.
– Take a few drops of the serum onto the palms of your hand. The amount of serum depends on the length of your hair. Rub hands together and distribute evenly along the lengths of your hair, paying particular attention to the ends.
– Can also be used on completely dry hair prior to combing for intense shine & smoothing.
