As you may be able to tell from some of my pictures, I am a bleach blonde – awful I know! I am naturally blonde, but it’s more of a dirty blonde, and over the years, I have dyed it different colours but I always come back to being blonde and I prefer it to be quite light!
Anyway, to the point! Because I use bleach on my hair (or rather my hair dresser does) my hair is pretty damaged, and after seeing what happed to Kelly’s hair I realised that I should really take care of it.
I really want to try some of the Kerastase hair products as I’ve read so many reviews that say how amazing the products are. However, a few weeks back, whilst perusing the shampoo isle in my local superdrug, I spotted L’oreal’s damage care repairing shampoo.
(Sorry about the rubbish picture-I'm not having much luck at the moment with lighting)
I have found recently, that after washing my hair, and then brushing it-I get a lot of hair breakage and find that my fluffy black dressing gown is covered in my hair – not good obviously! So I was in the market for something that would help repair my hair and limit any breakage. So I read the bottle and was suckered in to purchasing with very little expectations of a drugstore shampoo. I thought to see real results, I would need to go and spend a fortune, but I have been pleasantly surprised with it!
This is what the L’oreal website says about the range:
Elvive Damage Care Shampoo targets damaged areas to fill in gaps and seal damaged hair fibres. Hair feels stronger and more resilient. Helps repair damaged hair, enriched with a replica of one of hair's natural ceramides. For up to 95% less breakage from brushing**, use with elvive damage care conditioner
I have been using the shampoo for the last month now and have very little breakage – I can’t say that I’ve had none because that would be telling porky’s but my hair does feel a lot stronger, healthier and I have very little breakage when brushing. All in all I think this is a very good product and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cheaper alternative.
I won’t lie, I get paid tomorrow and my plan is to buy a few of the Kerastase products. But, what I thought I could do, is use that for a few weeks and then do a comparison and see whether it’s worth spending the extra money or not!
