L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum Review

L’oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum Review

L'Oreal, famous for its hair colour, also has this L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum. This hair serum has become my favourite hair serum now and I use it everyday for hair styling and detangling my hair. It also adds a bounce to my hair. So, lets see how this serum from L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 worked for me...

Product Information- Daily aggression from sun, water & pollution makes your hair dry, rough and unmanageable. The hair tangles and breaks. L'Oreal Advanced research has created the new Total Repair 5 Nourishing Oil Serum. Its caring formula works at 2 levels: When applied, it instantly attaches itself to damaged areas, repairs and unifies the hair's surface, creating a protective shield against further damage and split ends. Nourishes and smoothens your hair from root to tip; hair feels silky, looks healthy and is easy to style.

My Take On L’oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum-

This serum comes in an outer cardboard box, where the L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum bottle has been kept safely. The bottle is very simple, not overtly fancy and the color of this hair potion reminds me of Livon Hair Potion, which I have used in the past. Unlike Livon, the oily feeling does not stay on and on and on. This kind of gets absorbed and adds a lovely shine to the hair without feeling sticky or oily at all. It smells kind of strong, shampoo like and the fragrance stays on for quite sometime but fades away slowly. It spreads very easily onto my hair and absorbs quickly leaving my hair bouncy, shiny and detangled! ^_^ I then love my detangled hair :D

Final Verdict- I highly recommend this to those who want instant shine and bounce to their hair and also to those who want to smoothly glide their fingers through their hair. This serum is one of the best hair serums I have ever used and would continue to repurchase it :D :D Seriously, this is a winner- affordable, simple and effective! However, the effects are temporary and it does not repair the hair.
