I go through a staggering amount of shampoo and conditioner in a month. I can't stand a day that goes by when I don't have shiny clean hair, even using dry shampoo for a full day makes me feel extra manky and I can't wait to throw myself under water in the evening. I tend to stick to the same brands like Aussie and Garnier, but I occasionally branch out when I'm feeling wild. The last trip to Boots was a little like that.
There was an offer on, as there always seems to be and I got happily sucked in by it. I've always wanted to try L'oreal shampoo but when other things are on offer for less, I tend to stay clear. Not this time though and I picked up the (purple of course) shiny Hair Expertise Pure Colour radiance enhancing system dazzling colour and volume shampoo and conditioner for flat, coloured hair. Why in the name of god products have to have names the length of today and tomorrow, I will never know. But thats the only time I'll be tying that out for this review! There are several other shampoos conditioners and treatments in this range, depending on your hair type or how soft, shiny, ect you'd like your hair. I'm always impressed by the overwhelming choice there is, just for your hair. But considering my hair is three different shades and very dyed, I went with the coloured option.
I wasn't expecting amazing results with these, as they were a little fancier and more expensive. A lot of the time, cheaper can be better. I have also noticed Fleur DeForce go on about them, so I wasn't sure if I subconsciously bought them because of that. I'll admit that I wasn't a massive fan of the scent, I'm a lover of floral and sweet smells, but these have rosemary and mint oil in them. It took some getting used to, but I've come to like it as the product is too good to not use just because of the smell. Both of them have no sulphates in them, which means they wont strip the colour from hair. I kept note of how my hair colour stayed after every wash and I never noticed any colour wash out during showers. Already a massive plus, as I had only recently used a lovely shampoo that managed to strip almost all of the purple out of my hair with just one use. I wasn't a happy bunny.
Apart from them not touching my colour, one was by far better then the other. The shampoo was nice and did the job, but it didn't wow me. I'd get it again purely as I know it wont take my colour out. But the conditioner was the one that really stood out for me. It made my hair incredible soft and gave it a noticeable shine after use. I really loved using it and I'll be buying them both again, especailly for the conditioner. And the shiny purple packaging doesn't hurt either! I'd love to try out the other products from L'oreals Hair Expertise range, just to see what its like! These are currently €7.88 each, but there is a 3 for two offer on them at the moment in Boots.
Have you tried any of the L'oreal Hair Expertise Range?
