L’oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum Review
L’oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothening and Nourishing Oil Serum product was launched a couple of months ago. You must have seen the other version from loreal which comes in a golden yellow bottle. L’oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum Review had an promotional offer going on and I was out of my usual serum so I thought of giving this one a try.

Feel about Product
Well if you go through the ingredients list you will find a lot of chemicals and they aren’t hiding it. I usually use serums after wash on my hair as my hair tends to be frizzy.This one comes in a flip open cap. The bottle is small and the cap is disproportionate when compared to the size of the bottle. Nevertheless the dispenser is good and it pours product in required amounts. The bottle is travel friendly and you can easily carry in a purse.The color of the product is transparent and it doesn’t have any smell. I usually apply it on my hair when they are damp. It makes my hair smooth and makes them tangle free. I usually comb after applying it and I dnot see any hairfall occurring.
Coming to the claims regarding split ends I don’t see it decreasing it in any way. Also it did not make my hair strong and did not repair cuticles. I adds a subtle shine to my hair which I totally like. It works well on damp hair as instructed rather than dry hair.
You need to apply the product in small amounts. If you apply to much your hair will become heavy and limpy the next day. And you might need to take a head wash. Overall for that price I think it’s a very good product and you should try it once.
