Packaging:

L’Oréal Paris’ Elvive Low Shampoo Total Repair 5 comes in a bulky container of 400ml and a pump top. The container is white and has some red, gold, and black on it and the pump is red.

Type:

There are 3 different types of “Low Shampoos” which serve different hair types: the “Elvive Extraordinary Oil Low Shampoo” for dry and fragile hair, the “Elvive Colour Protect Low Shampoo” for dry coloured hair and the “Elvive Low Shampoo Total Repair 5” for damaged and sensitized hair.

Tested Shampoo and Hair Type Tested On:

We tested the “Elvive Low Shampoo Total Repair 5” for damaged and sensitized hair. The shampoo was tested on normal hair.

Smell:

The shampoo smelled nice, but it does not overpower.

Texture:

The texture of the shampoo is creamy, non-foaming, and spreads in a buttery way on the hair. The product does not lather up and it feels more like a conditioner than a shampoo.

Effect:

The “Elvive Low Shampoo Total Repair 5” is a shampoo-conditioner hybrid that is sulfate-free. Sulfates are used in most beauty products to lather and clean both the hair and the skin, however, they have been found to be harsh and even aggressive on the skin and hair. The most important aspect of using “sulfate-free” products is that their cleaning efficiency has not been compromised. A component we examined closely while testing the “Elvive Low Shampoo Total Repair 5”.

Upon using the shampoo, we found it to be non-foaming just as advertised, it is also gentle on the hair because of its rich creamy-like texture.

We followed the instructions which recommend 10 to 15 pumps, but we found that the amount to use depends on hair length: If your hair is short you will need less quantity, same for fine hair. and we left the product on for a total of 3 minutes. The shampoo rinsed out easily, however, we found that it is essential to rinse multiple times so that no residue remains. If not, then the hair will appear greasy, like it is coated with some sort of oil, and clumped together. Rinsing with medium heat or even cool water is highly recommended to make sure that the product does not stick to the hair.

If done right, we found that it leaves the hair looking refreshing, clean, and with a nice smell that is distinct. The product is effective and does not compromise on care or cleanliness especially given that it is “sulfate-free.” We particularly noticed the ends of the hair feeling soft and smooth. We tried it without conditioner and found that there was no need for conditioning. If the hair being washed is fine, then we recommend you alternate between the “Elvive Low Shampoo Total Repair 5” and another shampoo of your choosing. This way, the “Low Shampoo” will work more as a treatment for hair repair than a regular every day shampoo.

Price:

“Elvive Low Shampoo Total Repair 5” is sold for $6/400ml. The price of the shampoo is comparable with similar formulas like the “Pantene Pro-V Gold Series Deep-Hydrating Co-Wash Shampoo” which sells at $10/450ml.

    حل جذري لمن لديها شعر جاف ومجعد!!!

    شكرا انوثة لاختياري ضمن شهر اذار وللحصول على منتجات لوريال ومن ضمنها هذا الشامبو الكريمي المخصص للشعر الجاف والتالف
    -للمرة الاولى استخدم مثل هذا النوع من الشامبو بحيث ياتي كريمي الملمس
    -سهل الاستخدام من حيث يمكن التحكم يالكمية التي يحتاجها شعري من خلال المضخة الموجودة اعلى العبوة
    -بسبب تركيبته الخالية من الكبريت لم اتوقع الحسول على رغوة , ولكن انا افضل دائما الرغوة خصيصا بالشامبو
    -استخدامه جدا سهل فقط قمت بضخ 15 مرة على يدي, ثم وزعت الشامبو على كامل شعري من الجذور للاطراف وتركته لمدة خمس دقائف, من بعدها قمت بغسل شعري جيدا بالماء ولكن اخذت بضع الوقت الاضافي لكي ازيله تمام من شعري بسبب تركيبته الكريمية
    -النتيجة: حصلت على شعر ناعم ورطب واقل تشابك (لدي شعر مجعد) , وقد قلل من نفشة شعري
    -اوصي به كل من لديها شعر ناشف وتالف لان يعيد الحيوية للشعر ولكن ليس للاستخدام اليومي

    The perfect cure for dry colored hair

    Submitted by Rola Halaby

    As an experienced person in ” finding the perfect conditioner for dry & damaged hair” I can give 5 stars rate for this amazing low shampoo.
    I tried it as shampoo but honestly i was not satisfied with cleanliness of my head, so i advice u to use it as a conditioner after using “elvive shampoo”, and for women who have oily head skin, avoid putting it on the racine. Just dry ur hair and enjoy the silky feeling of your hair!!
    I am using it since 15 days and i noticed a big improvement in my hair, no more dryness & no need for using sechoir or babylisse to improve the look.
    Highly recommended!!

    I have been using this shampoo for a week and I’m obsessed with the result that I will talk about …
    First the packaging is amazing and I’m in love with the pump so u can use the exact amount u need with no drama 😂
    Second this smells heavenly it smells so refreshing 😍
    The texture is more creamy like the texture of conditioner …
    First when I received it I look in the information it’s for dry hair and damaged colored hair “oh yeah this is for me” and knowing that it’s sulfate free and foam free made me so curious to see how it will work…
    So far it’s amazing I used as recommended 15 pump and leave it for 3 min then rinse very well
    I used to use half of conditioner bottle after shampoo and then I use creams after bath to comb my dry hair with this shampoo I didn’t even used my conditioner it leave the hair silky and mosturized no foam just apply then rinse well so u don’t have any resedue
    Really I didn’t give this product (7a22o) cz it’s amazing I highly recommend it it also helps my hair look more healthy with no dead ends and it’s price is pretty good to give it a try will be restocking for sure thank u ounousa u gave me chance to find my shampoo

    It smells great, the texture is creamy so i am using it as a conditionner with my basic shampoo. It suits my hair a lot especially with the monthly hair colouring and daily usage of mousse… it makes it softer .. i highly recommend!

    Non foaming properties worth trying

    Submitted by Myriam Dagher

    on

    Well I never dye my hair but my mum tried it because she always dyes her hair in red-brownish colors. She usually doesn\’t really shower a lot fearing the discoloration due to shampoos. But when I gave it to her to try it, she unexpectedly noticed that the color of the hair did not go with the water. Due to the products\’ ultra gentle cleansing formula with a its non-foaming properties that prevent the side-effects of the foams on the hair color.

    I’ve got the Elvive Colour Protect Low Shampoo” for dry coloured hair but unfortunately my hair isn’t coloured so I gave it to my mom. she saw the difference from the first time usage, her hair became more smooth. she will definitely use it for the last pump.

    Favorite shampoo ever!

    Submitted by ZEINA NASSER

    “I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first when it came to the fact that it is a non-foam shampoo, especially that ever since we were kids, we were told that we needed to keep washing our hair until the shampoo would really foam or else our hair wouldn’t be clean. But this shampoo changed my mind on the topic, it might not foam but it truly does a deep cleaning. I have wavy hair that is very hard to comb but after using this shampoo for almost 2 months now, my hair is so much softer and the ends feel super hydrated and smooth and people around me noticed this. So far I have recommended this product to my entire family and all my friends so give it a go ladies you’ll be satisfied I assure you!”
