A few years ago, when Aishwarya came on TV with her beautiful mane saying “5 problems, 1 solution,” I was also among the scores of women who headed to the store to buy the complete package of shampoo, conditioner and hair mask. Total Repair 5 was the first change after years of using Dove and I was one satisfied customer. I did move on to different brands, but when I saw a new product from the same variant, I wanted to try it and here is the review on Loreal Elvive Total Repair 5 Instant Miracle 1 Minute Mask.
The formula, enriched with Keratin structure recovering AA and Ceramide, melts after the application of the hair fiber and penetrates immediately deep into the hair for a thorough recovery. Immediately after use, you feel the metamorphosis: the hair is restored, the surface is smooth and feels incredibly smooth.
How To Use:
After washing on damp hair. Distribute evenly from roots to ends. Immediate result: no need for soaking, rinse lightning speed. On contact with eyes, rinse immediately

My Experience with L’Oreal Elvive Total Repair 5 Instant Miracle 1 Minute Mask:
I have seen a great difference in my hair since the time I have been using hair masks and I absolutely love it. I picked this 1-minute mask in place of a conditioner which just got over. The mask comes in a tube and the color is similar to the other products from the same range. The plastic flip cap is tight and shuts itself without any spillage and thus the product is travel friendly. The mask is semi thick, creamy and light pink in color and the consistency is a little thicker than a regular conditioner and it smells similar to the Total Repair 5 variants.
The product is designed for dry and damaged hair. I have damaged ends and if not taken care, the ends look like hay, so I felt this product is the best to repair them. The product can be applied on roots and hair. I apply the product to the ends first and then massage the scalp with the amount remaining in my hand. I have oily scalp so I prefer not to get build up using the conditioners. You can just wash off the product immediately. While rinsing, I noticed my hair was just falling in the place and unfolding itself without any tangles. After towel drying, my hair had no tangles at all!
My hair felt very smooth and feathery soft. It doesn’t weigh down the hair and there is no residue but it doesn’t keep the natural hair texture. I found my hair was a little bit straight, like it was smoothened out! The mask also made my hair frizz free! My hair looked very healthy and shiny and the shine lasted for 2 days. My hair also was strong and had less hair on my comb when I combed through! So overall, the product lives up to the claim and it
takes only 1 minute for smooth, healthy and easily manageable hair.
