L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo Review
Amongst all hair issues, 5 have featured frequently and prominently in almost all discussions on hair issues. They are hair fall, dryness, roughness, dullness and split ends. L’Oreal Paris’ tagline has been “5 problems = 1 Solution”. To check the validity of its claims, I tried out this L’Oreal Shampoo and here goes my experience with the same. Read below my L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo Review and find out how true it is to its claims 🙂

What Total Repair 5 Shampoo from L’Oreal Paris claims
Fights 5 types of hair problems namely- hair fall, dryness, roughness, dullness and split ends.
L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Shampoo Packaging
The only hair issues I have are dryness, roughness and split ends but these issues haven’t been combatted by any shampoo and conditioner so far, hence, I knew it’ll be a litmus test for this shampoo. Coming to the packaging of L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo,
it comes in a sturdy plastic tube with an equally sturdy flip-top cap. It is definitely spillage-free, easy to carry and hygienic. Thus, travel-friendly which is why, I consider it up to the mark in terms of packaging 🙂
L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Shampoo Appearance
The aroma is pleasant but I cannot relate it some fruit or natural ingredient which is why, I call it ‘artificial”. Please do not expect it to last for 3-4 days or longer. At the best, it will last for an entire day.
My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo
I typically oil my hair the night before I have to shampoo my hair, so in keeping my long-tradition of overnight oiling, I did the same and washed my hair with L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Shampoo. One wash was sufficient to get rid off the oil and it left my hair soft as well as cleansed.
However, that effect is transient. After 2-3 days, that glossy and softened look went away. So, while it is true to its claim, it is still, somewhat disappointing for me because I detest washing my hair frequently. Shampooing often strips your hair off its natural oils which leads to frizz and coarseness.
Coming to L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Shampoo’s claim of eliminating split ends, I cannot believe that people fall for it. Naturally, this claim of the shampoo is false and let alone this shampoo, no shampoo can eliminate your split ends.
Finally, coming to the remaining two claims which are regarding hair fall as well as dullness, I again don’t feel that any product single-handedly can work on reducing/eliminating hair fall and this shampoo was not able to stop hair fall completely.
Finally, coming to those who can use this L’Oreal shampoo, I feel every hair type can use this shampoo since it removes all the dust and oil effectively. A major drawback is that it is loaded with a number of toxic chemicals. In fact, if you read the ingredients’ list properly.
Overall, even if L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo works well on your hair, I recommend using it cautiously since it has a lot of harsh chemicals.
