L’Oréal’s “Elvive Extraordinary Oil Replacement” is packaged in a heavy-duty squeeze-tube that has a flip-open cap. The squeeze-tube has a shiny gold copper color with the brand name and product description written in black on it.
The product is designed for dry hair.
The “Elvive Extraordinary Oil Replacement” has a creamy texture.
This product has a strong fruity smell.
This product can be used either before washing the hair, during hair wash, and even after when the hair is dry. Since the “Elvive Extraordinary Oil Replacement” works as a nourishing hair treatment for dry hair it is recommended to be used as part of the normal hair wash routine.
After using the product for 10 days, we found that it nourished and revitalized dry and destressed hair deeply. The results started showing after the second use when the hair became shinier because of the hydrating effect of the “Elvive Extraordinary Oil Replacement.” The cream also helped with hair styling because it smoothed the hair and made it easier to tame. While using the product in the different application methods recommended (before, during, or after hair wash), we found that the best results came from using a dollop of the cream during hair washing because it allowed for the most hydrating effect. The drawback was that when the product was used after hair wash it made the hair feel heavy and oily.
The “Elvive Extraordinary Oil Replacement” retails in Lebanon at $4.6/300 mL which is a good price. Other hair treatments (creams, and masks) that promise similar effects like Garnier’s Whole Blends products retail at $6.99/300 mL on the official website.
