I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this product yet! I have lost count of how many bottles I’ve brought of this stuff. I have curly sometimes frizzy hair and find when I straighten that I need a pump or two of this oil to tame any little frizzy bits and stop my hair looking dry and fluffy. Don’t use any more than that or else you will be oil slick city! Lovely product at a really reasonable price. Also like that it’s a glass bottle versus plastic.

This oil has a nice consistency to pump into your palm,easy to use just rub hands together and apply to your hair. I felt like 2 pumps is enough as it absorbs well, even though it’s says up to 4. I like the glass bottle it looks good, prefer that to plastic! I would worry about it if I was travelling as I don’t think the lid would be very secure. I’d pump some into a wee container to travel. I’ve enjoyed using this oil it’s definitely made my hair soft and shiny, but didn’t stop any fluffiness or frizz. I think it’s a medium intensity oil. I think it would last a very long time as it’s a large bottle and you don’t need to use as much as it says. I like that it’s not greasy in the hair either. Pretty good bang for your buck, I would recommend it to a friend. It smells sooo good!! Can’t stop sniffing my hair!!
Tips: Try using 2 pumps to start as it absorbs quite well into the hair, you can always add more. Works well ok wet or dry hair.
First off, this luxurious fragrant coconut oil surprised me to my core!! The Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil is a great alternative to salon branded hair care and fronts up with the big guns in the oil department. A fraction of the price in comparison to salon brands with a rrp of $20, you can't go wrong!
The treatments consistency is substantial but with a water like feel, and melts away like butter. It absorbs well and does what it says, leaving a weightless feel on the hair but with the silk and shine of a goddess. The product goes along way and seems as if it doesn't need to be reapplied throughout the day.
The packaging is gorgeous, the see-through glass gives a high end feel to an affordable product. The pump makes an easy to use feature without the spilage that you can often get with oils.
For normal to dry hair, this nutritious oil is found at most pharmacies, supermarkets and farmers stores, making it easier to get your hands on which is always a plus!!
Tips: As a freelance senior hair stylist, I not only used this product on myself but also my clientele. I found it a great blow waving tool with just 3 pumps for med-thick hair when wet for manageability and an extra pump once dried and styled for a smooth and silky finish.
I would reccomend, as with most oils, to be on the safe side and start off with less when it comes to fine hair. 1-2 pumps max when wet and approx 1/2 a pump in dry hair to style, as not to weigh the hair down. It is very concentrated and I would imagine it could go along way.
All in all, I give this product a 10/10.
It was a bit heavy if you used to much but once I did a bit less it was very good I find blowdrying with tales less time to dry and great after straightening
Tips: As above dont use to much unless your hair is thick I have used high end products and this is up there with them
L’Oréal has always been a great hair product and I was excited to try this new product. The nice glass bottle is a great shape, the pump dispenses easily and not too much product onto your hand. This new oils scent is devine And smells like a tropical island holiday, the texture is velvety smooth and light without feeling greasy, I have very fine hair and most oils I have used weighs it down significantly even with smallest drop, this oil is very lightweight but I found I could only use a very small amount, without it feeling limp. It’s lovely to use as a heat protectant before blow drying keeping it away from roots and also a teeny amount distributed evenly through hair after straightening to tame those pesky flyaways. Overall I would Definately reccomend and use this delicous oil again but for my hair only a very small amount. The size bottle would last a very long time which is a bonus too!
Tips: Rub a very small amount on your palms after straightening and lightly stoke over those flyaways.
I have been trialing this product for a week now, and have not found that it has made a huge difference on my hair. I have been applying it to my hair after washing and then blow drying it in, and have not found that my hair is any softer. Now this could just be that my hair is extremely porous and damaged through the ends and this is not hydrating enough to make a big impact. I think that if you have natural hair that is not damaged this would condition your ends, but for me personally it was not intense enough.
Tips: I think it might work better for me if I saturate the ends, leave it on for 30 mins and then shampoo my hair.
Impressions of this product before I’ve read any information about it is... It looks like an oil, the colour of the packaging is predictable, the bottle is glass and heavy which gives me the impression that its good quality. The fact that it has a white pump reminds me of skincare which I like. Let’s use this! It has a pretty smell, women will love it, I personally would prefer if it was more coconut less floral. I used the oil as per the instructions on the bottle which is pretty straight forward and easy to understand which is SO important. I left my hair to dry naturally because that is MY normal daily routine and I feel like the product did deliver what it said it would. My hair was noticeably soft, less frizz and did not feel greasy. Although this is not the sort of product I would normally reach for, I do think it could be an easy to use and satisfying product for the correct user. I think this would be ideal for someone who has naturally wavy hair that just needs a tiny bit of encouragement to stay tame or someone with a full head of normal textured virgin or coloured hair that gets blow waved or ironed regularly.
Tips: This is the kind of product you would use if you are a no fuss kind of girl and like multipurpose use from a product. Using it as a pre-shampoo treatment I would make sure its partnered up with a good quality shampoo & conditioner so that your hair does not end up feeling too heavy, you do want the treatment quality that it offers but if you are going to use it afterwards as well as a styling product then I would make sure it is completely washed out of your hair before you use it to style.
I was very excited to receive this is the mail!!! First thoughts: it smells amazing!!!! Having very dry damaged hair this product was a absolute life saver! The first time I tried it I used it as it say a pre shampoo treatment applying 2-5 pumps through my hair leaving for about 10-15 mins, shampooed our and my hair was soft and silky! I also applied 1 pump through damp hair and blow waved smooth, it left my hair so shiny and frizz free,
It is a heavy oil, so I found in my hair (lots of fine hair) 1 application was more than enough at once, It got very greasy if I put it on wet to blow wave and then finished with in on dry hair! I think with the product we need to remember LESS IS MORE
Tips: Being a heavy oil I would recommend this more to people with thicker coarser hair, however I feels it did leave my hair super soft and shiny with minimal product! So great value for money for finer hair , also would recommend to anyone with very dry damaged long hair! Especially using it as your pre shampoo treatments and smoothing frizz.
smell like a holiday and makes your hair feel absolutely lush! this would not normally be my go to product but I gave it ago and wow was I surprised my hair felt so shiny and soft, I used this after my hair was washed towel dried then I applied the product and let my hair dry naturally and it felt the best it has in ages, would definitely recommend this product to someone that doesn't have the budget for a salon professional product but wants to use a great nourishing product.
Tips: use 1 pump of oil for short hair, 2 pumps of oil for medium to long hair less of this product is more as you can make the hair appear oily if you over use. when applying to the hair make sure you focus on the ends of the hair working your way up to the mid lengths of the hair, try to avoid apply to the roots as you can make the hair appear greasy. I found this product works best in wet or styled hair as a finishing product to smooth out your finished result or just as a nice leave in nourishing product for the hair.
This product comes in a beautiful glass bottle. It has a nice pump dispenser that conveniently locks when not in use. I applied 3 pumps into the palm of my hand. And as recommended by the pack instructions I warmed the product up in my hands by rubbing my palms together. I then spread it through my hair. I found that it was really lightweight and was absorbed into my hair immediately. My hair is super coarse and dry....so super thirsty. The fragrance is so delicious. A nice subtle sweet coconut fragrance. I felt the product penetrated my hair and nourished it from the inside out. I will definitely buy this product again once it runs out.
