So today, I am going to review a smoothing night serum by L’Oreal Professionnel. I have dry and frizzy hair, so I thought maybe this product will help my hair situation. Its an overnight, non-sticky serum for making your hair smooth and waking up to soft hair, at least that’s what I expected from this product.
Smoothing night serum for unmanageable hair . A non-greasy gel cream that nourishes and conditions the hair fibre overnight for easier styling in the morning. Polymer AR : envelops the hair to help protect against humidity. Oil in cell : a combination of incell and nourishing oils ( olive + argan ) to soften , condition and enhance the texture of the hair fibre.
Directions For Use:
Spread 1 or 2 hazelnut sized amounts of product in the hand. Apply section by section to dry or damp hair in the evening. Do not rinse. Style as usual in the morning.
Aqua + glycerine +amodimethicone + hydroxypropyl + starch phosphate + cetearyl alcohol + trideceth – 5 + polyquaternium – 37 + prypelene + glycol dicaprate + trideceth 10 + olive fruit oil (finally something natural ! ) + argan oil + cocamidoprpylbetaine + ppg-1 trideceth – 6+chlorohexidne + digluconate + quaternium 87 + benzyl salicylate + butylhenylmythylpropional+glyceryllaurate+butylphenylmethylpropional + glyceryllauret + hexyl cinnamal + sodium hydroxide + citric acid + fragrance.
This hair smoothing serum comes in a shiny purple tube with a silver cap. The lid on the cap opens up and one has to squeeze the tube gently to get the product out, easy to use. The instructions and details are given on the back of the tube.
Texture, Colour, and Fragrance:
The texture of the product is like gel mixed with cream, its not very creamy, more on the gel side, dries quickly. The colour of the product is translucent white. It has the typical smell which all the L’Oreal products have. I feel it has a chemical fragrance which I have noticed in every L’Oreal hair product, I don’t like it much and I wish it would make my hair smell nicer.
INR 525 for 125 ml.
My Take on L’Oreal Professionnel Expert Smoothing Night Serum:
I have frizzy and dry hair and I wanted some serum to smoothen my roots and tips for easier styling, so I went ahead and purchased this product as it claims to do so. To be honest, I expected much more from this product than it delivered. It won’t really do any miracles on your hair overnight, I feel its just a normal de-tangling serum, at least that’s what it does to my hair. I like the packaging and its easier to apply and store , I do not like the smell, its too chemically scented ( I don’t know if that makes sense but most of the L’Oreal hair products have that typical scent). I usually take a little bit on my finger tips and apply it to my hair, mostly on the hair tips as they tend to get more dry.
I used it as an overnight serum, but it didn’t seem to make much difference, so now I use it as a de-tangler whenever I want to remove knots and when I feel my hair is getting rough. It does make your hair softer when you use it, like for the initial 1 – 2 hours, you would feel that your hair is less tangled than usual. If you don’t like waking up with too many knots (I doubt anyone likes that :p), then you can go for this product and apply a little bit before hitting the bed, but don’t expect it to treat or nourish your hair. A good serum for softening your hair if your hair gets too unmanageable, it’s a little bit expensive because I feel Livon does the same thing to your hair at a much cheaper price, its non-sticky which is a good part, won’t leave your hair oily, can be applied on damp as well as dry hair, I usually apply it on dry hair.
Pros of L’Oreal Professionnel Expert Smoothing Night Serum:
- Easy to apply.
- Good packaging.
- Softens hair to a certain extent.
Cons of L’Oreal Professionnel Expert Smoothing Night Serum:
- Does not really treat hair like it claims to.
- I personally don’t like the smell.
- The softening effect does not last.
- Expensive because it does not deliver that much.
