Directions for use:-
- For best results, use on towel dried, damp hair:
- Take a few drops of the serum onto the palms of your hand. The amount of serum depends on the length of your hair.
- Rub hands together and distribute evenly along the lengths of your hair, paying particular attention to the ends.
- Can also be used on completely dry hair prior to combing for intense shine and smoothing. Do not rinse. Leave in.
Damaged hair can lack the natural cement which keeps the hair strong and resilient. To ensure cohesion and strength, the L’Oreal Laboratories have created Ceramide-Cement technology to replicate the hair’s natural cement, targeting the 5 problems.
My opinion on the product:-
I have dry hair which becomes frizzy after shampoo. I was searching for a nice budget hair serum that can be effective to control my hair fizziness. I got this for a nearby store and this was my first hair serum.
The bottle is opaque white in color with red flip open and screw open cap. It is travel friendly and my 40ml bottle is not bulky at all. The opening is small and perfect enough to dispense required amount of the product. The bottle is a little fragile though, the cap broke after it fell down accidently.
I took required amount of the serum out and rubbed it between my palms and applied from my mid hair length till the ends. The fragrance of the serum is mild and amazing and stays for a while and then fades. The product is a little runny and transparent in color. When I applied in on my hair my fingertips became so smooth and soft. I have applied this on dry hair and wet hair both and can now say that it did a very good job in detangling my hair and imparts a nice and healthy shine to my hair both the times without making it look greasy.
My hair is extremely dry therefore it was not able to control the fizziness much, but to some extent. I am happy to use it as my hair detangler especially after a hair wash. I have also used this which straitening my hair and have got nice results. It tames my hair to some extent and keeps my hair soft and shiny. The best part is that it has shelf life of 36 monts.
What I Liked:-
- Easily available
- Makes my hare shiny
- Nice and mild fragrance
- Detangles my hair
- Gives good results when used with hair iron
- Easy to apply
- 3 years shelf life
What I didn’t Liked:-
Was not able to tame my hair fully.
Will I repurchase and recommend:-
It is an average product considering my hair type and I am still looking for a hair serum that can control my frizzy hair. If you are looking for a budget hair serum then you can try this out.
