L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

If my recent haul is anything to go by, you'll know I've gone a little L'Oreal mad ...

If my recent haul is anything to go by, you'll know I've gone a little L'Oreal mad lately. I don't know how they do it, but the vast majority of products I've tried from this drugstore brand I've loved. Heck, I've even gone back for more - something that rarely happens with my medley of drugstore products. I was running out of my previous hair oil, an all natural number that was also from L'Oreal and faired well for almost a year, and so as a thick and wavy haired girl whose prone to a little frizz now and again more hair oil was needed. After one of my usual trips to Boots after a long day at Uni I eyed up the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil and decided to give it a go.

Heads up, my thoughts on this are rather one sided. Why? Because it really is that good, so much so that it's gone straight into the 'Gemma Loves' category here on the blog, a supreme category for the best of the best product-wise. Containing 6 flower extracts as well as my beloved coconut oil (I even clean my makeup brushes with the stuff), the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil has been proving it's worth and here's how I've been using it:
  • If I intend to rock my wavy locks by leaving my hair au natural then I run two pumps through wet hair and a further pump through dry hair to keep the frizz at bay. 
  • For days when I want to make a bit more effort I'll use something with a little more hold (a mousse or blow-dry cream perhaps) on my hair before blow drying and styling with curlers or straighteners and then go in with a drop of hair oil to finish it off. 
  • I've even gone as far to pop a little bit into a tiny container to carry around with me and it's been fab post miserable rainy weather to add a bit of weightless va-va-voom (or life if you prefer) back into my hair. 
The results? In short it delivers the 3 S's - soft, smooth and shiny. In rambley form, let's just say that it gives me everything I could ever want from a hair oil and my hair hasn't felt (or looked!) this good in a long long time. L'Oreal, you've done it again!

The L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil is priced at £8.49 for 100ml which may sound rather expensive for a drugstore hair oil, especially when you can get a higher end hair oil for a few pounds more, but trust me on this one, this frizz reducing, shine enhancing, super softening hair oil is totally worth it. You can buy the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil from Boots or online here.

  1. I love this oil, I managed to get it on sale for £3 and wish I'd have stocked up on more now! I really like that it's in a glass bottle too when most cheaper oils come in plastic x

  2. I was sent this months ago and had held off using it until recently and since then I can't get enough of it, fantastic product and I love the smell!


  3. This sounds great, I'm always on the lookout for products to keep my hair under control and looking healthy! I have Tresemme Liquid Gold at the moment but you can never have too many haircare products to try xx

  4. I normally struggle with hair oils because my hair is so fine, but I tried this at my friend's house a few weeks ago and really liked it, it nourished my hair without weighing it down.

  5. It sounds like a great dupe to the Kerastase Oléo Relax and I need to try it. I love the Kerastase one but this is alot cheaper and if it works I might start using the L'oreal one instead.


  6. i haven't tried this yet!
