L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil


L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil is available in a version for all hair types and also in a version for coloured hair. I do dye my hair but only very occasionally (when I literally cannot leave it any longer) and so I opted for the version for all hair types. 

I really like how this comes in a glass bottle rather than plastic. I think it just makes a product feel much more expensive and luxurious. This is quite a large 100ml bottle so for £10 I think you are definately getting your moneys worth of both quantity and packaging. 

Extraordinary Oil is a 'precious blend of 6 flower extracts with nourishing properties for sumptuous softness and luxurious shine'. There are a few different ways that you can use this - before shampooing for luxurious nourishment, before styling to protect and transform your hair or after styling as a finishing touch for sumptiuous softness and luxurious shine. I tend to rub a couple of pumps through towel dried hair before blow drying then put not even half a pump through my styled hair just for that little bit of extra softness and also to tame fly-aways!

I've found that this is a very lightweight oil which is great for fine hair like mine, it doesn't weigh it down at all but still manages to work its magic. When I use it I notice a difference in how my hair dries - I have very 'boffy' hair (for want of a better word!) but this oil helps to tame it and it dries a lot sleeker. It also makes my hair feel lovely and soft and leaves it with a noticeable shine. As I said I also use literally the tiniest amount after styling just to tame any fly-aways and I find it really works for that too without adding any greasiness or heaviness to my hair. I really like how my hair styles when I use this, it feels weightless and 'whispy' which I love. I kind of wish it had more of a scent to it, it does have a very slight sweet scent but it's hardly noticeable at all which I find disappointing.  

I have in the past used Moroccan Oil, and if I was to compare, personally I prefer this simply for the weightlessness factor. In the future I would like to try the light version of Moroccan Oil as I did love the effect it had on my hair but in hindsight it really did weigh it down quite considerably.
