L’Oreal New Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo

Divya Ravishankar

Hey my dear IMBBians,

In the year 2012 L’Oreal launched its Advanced Haircare New Smooth Intense Range. In that it had Frizz Taming Serum, Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo, Smooth Intense Polishing Conditioner and Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Crème. From that last time I reviewed L’Oreal New Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum. Today I will be reviewing the other product from the range that is Shampoo and remaining will do it later. So let’s check if the shampoo worked for me or not.


Price: $4.99 for 12.6FL.OZ- 375mL

Product Description:

Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo instantly helps soften and tame rough textures, leaving hair polished, smooth and frizz-controlled over time.


My Hair speaks about L’Oreal New Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo:

Back in India I was used to Matrix Shampoo but when I shifted to US I did not find it. Instead one fine day I felt some other shampoo was used on me. Then I realized it was L’Oreal’s new shampoo. It was good and refreshing. It has gel like texture and gives a good massage to my roots. After few minutes lather starts to form and it was a good clean.

After rinsing I felt the transformation. It was silky and the fragrance was too good. I love the smell this shampoo gives out. Neither too powerful nor dull. It has the right combination to be admired. This shampoo is said to have Oleo Keratin that softens and smoothens each stand and Arginine-K Complex that penetrates hair fiber from root for healthier hair. Yes I did feel the softness and silkiness in me and it was healthy too so this works.


The product claims for 72 hours frizz control but I actually remain frizz free for 1 to one and a half days. I think that’s pretty good as I am little messy. But this one keeps the balance and makes the combing experience better.

Finally comes the packaging. The outer packaging is good but inside they have given a big hole which usually gives out more shampoo than needed. So we have to handle with hair. Take care that you apply the needed quantity on me.

So as you can see my hair liked the shampoo I am using now. So this is a good product from their new range.

Pros of L’Oreal New Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo:

• Smoothens the hair as claimed
• Makes hair shine and silky
• Remains Frizz free for more than one day
• Fragrance is great and bearable
• They have designed the outer packaging of bottle in an attractive way.


Cons of L’Oreal New Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo:

• The mouth of the opener is wide so it may give out more shampoo. They have to take care of this next time.
• Not available in India now

My Rating:

5/5. The plus overtook the cons so I did not mind those things and hence the 5.

Final Verdict:

Those who want smooth silky and frizz free hair I recommend L’Oreal New Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo. It definitely gives a new defining to the hair. Polishes and work wonders on your hair. I am not going to leave this now.
