With the merciless way that I have treated my hair for the past few weeks, I think it deserved a break. Yesterday as I was strolling at the mall, I almost jumped in glee when I saw pots of L’Oreal Elseve Smooth Intense Hair Masque. God, I’ve been dying to try it, but my best friend just keeps on forgetting to give me the pot that she bought for me! Haha! I couldn’t wait any longer, so I grabbed the pot, and hit checkout ( woops, in the real world, went to the counter, and paid for it ).
Lately, I have understood what it meant by “tangled” hair. My hair seems fine, but everytime I would run through my hair, it would get stuck, or something. Blame it on the shampoo that I’ve been using – I think it was too harsh, but heck, I had to use it. Now, I have to say byebye to it and say hello to my new Elseve shampoo ( that would be reviewed in another entry ) and Hair Masque. My Kerastase Oleo Relax Hair Masque pot is already empty, and I got intrigued by the statements of others that Elseve is as good as Kerastase. Being an absolute Kerastase fanatic ( to the point that I requested that brand for my OJT ), I decided to use this hair masque , and roadtest away!
After my hair bath courtesy of Elseve shampoo for Anti-Breakage, I applied the Smooth Intense Hair Masque. I rinsed away after leaving it on my hair for a minute, and used my fingers to detangle whatever there is to detangle as I shower it off.
Well, I just combed my hair using a wide tooth comb, and just let it dry. As the day progressed, I was checking my hair, and it felt really soft. And I mean super duper soft!
And to add, when I checked myself in the mirror, my hair got all its shine back. Talk about magic in one use! I couldn’t believe it myself. Shine in one use? It’s true, it’s true! and, no tangles for the day. Absolutely none. Even my sis commented that my hair looked extra nice today. No frizzies, manageable hair, everything perfect.
The damage inflicted was minimal – a pot of Elseve Smooth Intense Hair Masque costs only around 350 php ( around $8? ). Super affordable, and the pot is filled to the brim.
I am officially stocking up on this hair masque! As for the question if it can be compared to Kerastase Oleo Relax Hair Masque - Kerastase Oleo Hair Masque actually gives an INSTANT detangling effect, and super sleek ( it’s miraculous ), and Elseve is well, about 70% of Kerastase‘s in terms of performance. Considering it’s only 1/4 of its price, I can actually
live with this to use for everyday! The shine is a bonus that will make me use this over and over again!
I am officially hooked with L’Oreal Elseve! Next , I want to try the Smooth Intense Serum! Stay tuned!
