Today I’m going to review one of the most heavily advertised conditioners on Indian TV; the L’Oréal Paris Total Repair 5 Conditioner.
What it claims?
L’Oréal Total Repair 5 Conditioner absorbs instantly into your hair, restoring vitality and replenishing your damaged hair. Instantly detangled, hair is soft, smooth and silky to the touch.
5 Problems. 1 Solution.
Price: 150 I.N.R for 180g.
Shelf Life: 36 months.
Why I chose this product?
Well, to be completely honest, my mom is an Aishwarya Rai fan and she picked it up for me. And I have to say; I wasn’t very happy with her decision initially.
My take on the L’Oréal Paris Total Repair 5 Conditioner:
Now I think we’ve all seen Aishwarya Rai propagate the Total Repair 5 range until she’s hoarse. ‘Five problems; one solution’ she states. The range is supposed to cure dryness, roughness, dullness, split ends and hair fall and leave you with bouncy soft, unnaturally reflective hair. I have to say I was sceptical about results; I don’t trust unnatural, promised results or Aishwarya Rai. To top it off I’m not too crazy about the red and white packaging or L’Oréal products in general.
But I have to confess- this wasn’t a bad buy. My initial lack of belief was erased when, immediately after the first wash my hair felt softer and smoother. Also, it smells lovely- very warm and fruity. Now I cannot vouch for the reduction in hair fall and split ends, of which I have neither. But I have incredibly dry and frizzy hair, and it certainly seems to deliver when it comes to dryness and roughness. However, I should mention that it took a massive amount of product to get these results. But, if you’re suffering from dry, dull hair- you should give this product a try. It might just work for you.
1) Works reasonably well on dry hair.
2) Smells amazing and the smell lingers on for a while after washing.
3) Reasonably priced.
1) Doesn’t deliver everything it promises.
2) A large amount is needed to produce any results, meaning the bottle gets over rather quickly.
3) Loreal Total Repair 5 Conditioner is not paraben free.
Would I repurchase?
Probably not, as I’d like to try something that works better for me. But I would definitely recommend you give it a try if you’re suffering from moderately dry hair.
