If I were asked to handpick one single product from the entire L’Oreal Elseve line, I’d pick the L’Oreal Elseve Smooth Intense Serum in a heartbeat.
I truly believe that it is the best, and really, the best hair serum I’ve ever tried.
If Kerastase Oleo Relax Masque is my Holy Grail intensive conditioner, then the L’Oreal Elseve Smooth Intense Serum is my Holy Grail hair serum that is just perfect for my frizzy hair.
I remember one time when my hair was newly cut, and it was flying away in all directions ( horrible, horrible time of adjustment, let me tell you ), I had to use the hair iron to make sure my hair was in good shape before I left the house. One really busy evening, whilst I was late for a dinner date and my hair wasn’t dry yet, I applied some L’Oreal Smooth Intense Serum on my damp hair, concentrating on the tips, steering away from the roots ( as they make make my hair limp ), as I rushed off.
Lo and behold, as I arrived just in time for dinner, my friends were complimenting me on my new ‘do, saying that it wasn’t as stick straight as before, and they loved how my hair was still bouncy but not frizzy. ( For the record, my hair’s layered right now, teehee ). I was pleasantly surprised because I didn’t expect the serum to work that way – it made the tips of my hair manageable, and made my hair look neat and well-maintained.
As for the comparison with the luxurious Kerastase Oleo Relax Serum, I would recommend this over the former, for the reason that it only costs a little bit above 300 bucks( about 7 usd ), and it isn’t as heavy on the hair as the Kerastase Oleo Relax Serum. The L’Oreal Elseve Smooth Intense Serum is just about the right “not so heavy, not too light” serum for my thick, coarse-stranded hair that it makes it really, really manageable.
I love this stuff. Seriously.
