L’Oreal Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo
With the advent of the rainy season, my wavy hair started getting all frizzy and uncontrollable, and I was on the look-out for some product which could make my hair look a little less like the bird’s nest it usually was. While browsing the supermarket, I came across the L’Oreal Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo, and it looked like the answer to my troubles. It was meant to be used on unmanageable dry hair, which was exactly what I had.

The product contains:
Sodium Laureth Sulfate.
Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate Glycol Distearate.
Argania Spinosa Oil.
Hexylene Glycol and some more ingredients, but the lettering was too minute for me to continue reading and typing it in here. In fact, the ingredient list is quite intimidating.
Argan Oil and Silk Protein are supposedly the ground-breaking elements of this shampoo, which will make your hair like silk.

What I Thought about L’Oreal Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo:
The shampoo is a light golden colour with a very delicious scent. It comes in a 200 ml bottle (I couldn’t find a smaller bottle on the supermarket shelves).

Smoothing action: It does nothing like it claims and this was the prime purpose for which I had purchased this shampoo. I generally wash and shampoo my hair in the evenings, so that all the dirt could also be removed. After shampooing with the L’Oreal Smooth Intense shampoo, I also used a conditioner (which is food for another review). Once my hair had dried that evening, it looked a little bit more manageable than usual. However, the very next morning, my hair felt rougher than before I had used the shampoo.
Cleansing action: As a matter of fact, the product does not even cleanse my hair properly. After shampooing my hair, it felt like all the dust and dirt was still stuck to my hair.

Pros of L’Oreal Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo
It has a lovely scent, not too overpowering. Sorry, but I can’t think of a single other good thing to say about this product.

Cons of L’Oreal Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo
- Product does nothing like it claims – no smoothening of hair is visible.
- Product does not even properly cleanse the hair.
I bought a 200 ml bottle for Rs 130. Pretty expensive considering the other shampoos in the market. It has a shelf life of 36 months from the date of manufacture.

I am trying my best to finish off the bottle, so that I can buy a nice new one, but it doesn’t seem to be getting over no matter how much I use it up 🙁
Would I Buy It Again?
I would rate this shampoo a 1.5 out of 5.
