My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Vive Pro Glossy Style Smooth Gloss Serum:

I have dry, sometimes frizzy hair which made me decide to buy this product.  First of all, I love the packaging. The portable tiny plastic bottle with a cap on the pump is very travel friendly.  The serum itself is very lightweight, smooth and spreads evenly.  This product has a very strong, very sweet bubblegum scent which is not too overpowering once you apply it since you do not need that much product. It just leaves your hair with a subtle sweet scent, but some may not like its floral powdery perfume-y scent.

I find it works best when applied to wet hair instead of dry hair. The serum gets absorbed in the wet hair and helps detangle hair and reduce hair breakage. Once styled with the serum, it gives the hair a very nice shine and smoothness and fights frizz all day. But hair does start to look oily and greasy the next day.

It does not work well when applied on dry hair. It just coats the hair and makes it look very oily. It makes the hair flat and difficult to style.  A little goes a long way. I just need one pump to coat all of my almost waist length hair.  Be sure not to use too much as it will make your hair look oily.  Overall, an okay product for dry hair.

  1. Hey Neha, missed your reviews on IMBB. I don’t like such heavy products, they make my scalp greasy and give me a headache, thanks for reviewing this 🙂

      1. dnt know much abt loreal hair pdts know.. 😛 am only into their cosmetics not hair care pdts. Moreover, after reading average to worst rated loreal hair pdts in imbb i always kept distance fom their skin care regime except youth code know.. 😛 what spray wud u suggest devie for oily scalp but dry hair?? 🙂

  2. I don’t understand in this age when this has been proved that animal testing doesn’t prove that a product is safe for humans why Loreal still does animal testing!
