My Experience with L’oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum:

I picked this up on my recent visit to health and Glow. I’ve been religiously using the L’oreal Professional range of serums since the last three years except for the time when curiosity gets the better of me and I end up trying something new, but no matter what, I always get back to the L’oreal professional one without fail.

So, when I saw this at H&G, I was like okay, another one, I’ll skip this. Half an hour in the store and I got greedy. I mean its only 125 bucks and I was saving 500 bucks on the professional one. So, there was no reason not to pick it up. Right!!! :whistle:
I find the bottle to be very odd shaped. The cap is too huge for the bottle. It fits nicely, but if you compare the proportions, the length of the cap is exactly half of the bottle length. :stars:

5

The opening in the cap is just perfect as it dispenses the serum in a controlled manner as per your requirement. Now, coming down to the serum itself. The consistency is quite runny. It has a very similar texture like that of the professional range, but a little extra oily, less than the Matrix ones though, I hope it makes sense. :P

6

Summing up my experience with this serum.

Good Points:

1. Detangles the washed hair effectively.
2. Adds a noticeable shine to the hair without being too oily.
3. Hair feels softer after its application.
5. Works equally well on dry hair also. I’ve used this two days after shampooing my hair and it managed the frizzes quite effectively.
6. Does not weigh down the hair.
7. You don’t get the “washing needed” feeling after a day or two, which usually happens with Matrix biolage serum. It just evaporates without leaving any residues or oil.
8. Reasonably priced.

Not-so-Good Points:

If you see the claims, then it should help repair the hair surface. I seriously doubt a serum would be able to do that.

Yes, that’s s it. I don’t find any other problem with this product, not at such a price at least.

My Rating:

4 out of 5.

Will I Buy it Again?

Hmmm, it’s definitely a good serum. I am really liking it a lot nowadays. So, I am definitely buying this again till the time it acts nicely with my hair.

Final Word:

Definitely worth a try ladies. It’s cheap and effective, so go for it. Even if it doesn’t work on your hair, you won’t be heartbroken.

I also bought this few days back, but the bigger bottle @ 199/-for 80 ml.
Hv used it along with Total Repair 5 Shampoo & Conditioner 2-3 times & surely love this.
Wd surely repurchase the shampoo, conditioner & serum once finish off.
Hair Mask is still not available in Bhubaneswar, so may hv to order from sm online shopping site.

but never used it on dry hair. :nababana:
