I love the way Aishwarya comes swirling in that freaking gorgeous red dress and lets her hair flutter across the TV screen like unwinding a spool of silk. Its true-whatever this lady says-seems to be true- hehe. Well, this time she got me into buying the L’Oreal Total Repair Five Repairing conditioner-for my hair that doesn’t actually need “repair” –but the regular shampoos hardly do anything to the hair other than cleaning the scalp. For that extra shine-one has to resort to either a conditioner or an after wash serum. Personally I like conditioners more than serums-since the later STAYS on the hair-and I have an eerie feeling that it is attracting dust!!! The apply-and-wash-off type conditioner is what I prefer mostly.
What the product Claims:
It combats 5 signs of damage: Hair fall, Dryness, Roughness, Dullness, Split ends
Damaged Hair can lack the natural cement which keeps the hair strong & resilient.
To ensure cohesion & strength, the l'Oreal laboratories have created ceramide cement technology to replace the hair's natural cement, targetting the 5 problems.
>Repairs: the hair fibres, the hair structure is re-enforced and hair regains strength like new>Transforms: the hair surface to a regular & smooth conditioner
Well-I have tried various brands in conditioner previously-Himalaya, Ultra Doux, Garnier Fructis, L'Oreal Paris Nutri Gloss Mirror Shine and many years ago- a conditioner named Flex from Revlon. I find the Loreal total repair five conditioner to be an average quality one among them. On the first use-I might have poured some extra bit of it-the reason I am explaining later-and my hair remained limp for two days. Also I found-the most optimum amount of this conditioner- makes the hair soft and manageable-but it weighs it down too-I need to comb it several times to make it get the volume. The good thing is-it makes the brush easy to pull through. As for strengthening-honestly-I could find no significant difference. I think all this conditioner does is- make my hair smooth and silky-but it left me wanting for the airy softness that Aishwarya so proudly flaunts. Also the smooth effect goes away after another single wash.
1) Makes hair smooth and manageable
2) Prevents tangles and makes hair easy to comb through
3) Price is reasonable
4) Nice fragrance
Down Side :
1) Weighs hair down-and makes it totally limp if overused
2) Effect doesn’t last long
3) The top-down packaging is responsible for letting the extra amount out-the flip cap at the bottom always lets out more than what is required for my average length hair . And its quite a menace to get the extra amount inside as well. See the Picture below
