|L'Oreal EverStyle Alcohol-free Smooth|
& Shine Hair Creme
A few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to take better care of my hair. Extra shine was the first thing that I wanted to achieve. So, I started to look for a product that would make my hair more shiny.
The two products that I wanted to try were both by L'Oreal: one was called L'Oreal Paris Colorist Secrets Shine Gloss Hair Treatment, another L'Oreal EverStyle Smooth and Shine Hair Creme.
The second product, the one you can see in the picture on your right, is meant to be less extreme, so I started with the smooth & shine creme. I bought it on E-bay for approximately £15 including delivery. It smells lovely once on my hair. Also, it reduces combing forces and it does add a bit of shine. The amount of shine it adds depends on what shampoo I was using for washing my hair. Some shampoos make my hair extremely matte, then L'Oreal Smooth & Shine Creme won't make a massive difference, but if using the right type of shampoo, it can make your hair look and feel much better and shinier. The same applies to smell - most of the time my hair smelled absolutely lovely after I used this creme, but occasionally if I was messing about with different hair products, this creme didn't make my hair smell fantastic. It didn't make it smell bad either. So, the overall effect of the Smooth & Shine Creme is dependent on the effectiveness of other hair products.
L'Oreal Smooth and Shine contains silicones, so if you are against silicones in your hair care products, you may want to give this creme a miss. Otherwise, it's a great product and I will definitely be buying it again.
I use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of product build-up once every two weeks or sometimes more frequently and I am not against silicones. They give me extra shine, which other products don't seem to give.
The label states that the product is:
- Helps eliminate frizz for long-lasting smoothness without build-up. However, EverStyle creme contains dimethicone which is water insoluble silicone that does build-up in hair, therefore, I doubt in the accurateness of that information.
- Transforms dry brittle hair to satin smooth with glossy shine.
- Conditions and seals the hair strand and helps protect against damage from heat tools
- Resists humidity.
It is quite expensive, but it lasts a while. I would recommend this product to others and I will buy it again once I run out of it.
