What is it?
A range of hair products containing Arganine – an essential amino acid vital to the hair fibre.
L’oreal says: ” You put your hair through daily torture and sometimes it can lack essential nourishment. Weakened, your hair has a tendency to break and fall out. Introducing new Elvive Triple Resist range enriched in ARGININE + PROTEIN. The formula provides a triple action: reinforced, nourished from root to tip and stronger. ”
The range has a shampoo, conditioner, 60 second treatment masque and a ‘reinforcing treatment’ in the form of a root spray.
I ran out of the shampoo and conditioner I was using and decided I would just buy the whole set of products from this range … I figure this was justifiable as to get the maximum benefits, like most brands say, you should probably use the whole set of products in conjunctions with each other… also J-Lo looking super hot in the ads was perhaps also a contributing factor …
Just as a side note, I am not particularly into super expensive shampoo and conditioners, I would prefer to spend more money on hair treatments and oils and tend to buy shampoo and conditioners that are readily available in Boots or Superdrug.
I’ve been using these lovelies for about 3 weeks now and I’m loving them!
The whole range smells yummy but it’s not overpowering. The shampoo lathers up nicely and feels like it gives my hair a really good clean without making it dry or weighing it down.
The conditioner left my hair ridiculously smooth, shiny and manageable, again, without weighing down my hair.
The 60 second treatment leaves my hair even shinier and lovely and smooth. It also made my ends look dramatically better and i love the fact that it’s such a quick treatment. For an extra treat I have wrapped my hair in clingfilm and left it on for half an hour a couple of times, also with great results.
The reinforcing treatment was a weird concept to me at first, you can use it on wet or dry hair and spritz it into your roots. You then massage it into your scalp and can use it up to 2 times a day. I have been using it on towel – dried hair and noticed that my hair has been feeling healthier, although I can’t say I’ve noticed anything else.
I did read a few reviews on this range prior to purchase and a couple of people said that there was an issue of these products leaving residue, making their hair look dirty and one person who had used the root spray said it had made their scalp sore.
I have had none of these issues but would suggest making sure you wash out the conditioner and masque properly and go easy on the treatment spray!
Worth the Money?
I really like this range and will be repurchasing it. If you have fragile hair then this will be great for you and when the prices are so reasonable and the products readily available on the highstreet or supermarkets I don’t think you can really go wrong. They come if quite big sizes too so they are definitely gonna last fairly long time.
The shampoo and conditioner are £3.99 each, the masque is £4.99 and the reinforcing treament (root spray) is also around the £5 mark – I couldn’t find a definitive price for you! It is generally much cheaper to shop around a bit as different shops have different prices on these items.
These products can be purchased from Boots, Superdrug, larger chain supermarkets and the L’oreal Paris website:
