L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil shampoo comes in a golden bottle that brings out its elegance and distinguishes it from other shampoo bottles found at the supermarket. You can find all of the essential information about the shampoo, application method, and the desired results printed on the bottle. The fact that it is also translucent allows you to easily determine the remaining quantity of shampoo in it, whereas it is harder to tell with other bottles.
This shampoo gives off a pleasant, faint smell upon application and leaves your hair smelling fresh after washing it.
The Elvive Extraordinary Oil shampoo has a light-weight, liquid formula that isn’t as greasy as you would expect even if it’s mainly based on oils.
This shampoo was designed for dry and dull hair.
We tested this shampoo three times a week for a period of two months on dry hair suffering from split ends and dullness. The first two weeks of trial didn’t yield noticeable changes, so we began wondering whether it was going to bare any results. However, we noticed that the hair became less brittle when styling it and much softer shortly after the third week of trial. Consequently, we continued to use it for a longer period of time, which brought on even better results.
The hair didn’t feel coarse anymore at the end of the second month. It actually felt healthier and we received several positive compliments about that. Our hair also appeared shinier and less damaged; so when you try out this shampoo, we advise you to be patient and give it time to work its magic.
Initially, we were concerned about the use of a shampoo containing oils for it could add weight to the hair and prevent thorough cleaning. In spite of that, there wasn’t any residue left after rinsing, and we didn’t have to wash it more than usual due to heaviness.
This shampoo is available in two sizes: 400 ml for 4.3 USD in Lebanon and 700 ml for 6.3 USD. This value of price is similar to that of other shampoos such as Garnier’s Karite Shampoo with avocado oil and Shea butter which retails at 3 USD per 400 ml in Lebanon. So is Nivea’s Intense Repair shampoo which retails at 4.5 USD for the same capacity.
