Yummy411: L'Oreal Vive Pro Shampoo and Conditioner
I love hair products, but being 1 year locked, many products aren't designed for my hair type. Who else loves hair products? Why my sister Toni! She tried the new L'Oreal Vive Pro hair products. Read more to see what she has to say:
Hello All! Since I've been free of the "Creamy Crack" ( relaxer), I've been trying out products to see what works best on my hair. After having a relaxer for so long, I'm having to learn my hair in it's natural state all over again. So, I was excited about trying out L'Oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss (Pearl Complex). The particular regimen that I used says it is to be used on medium to long hair that's damaged. Ok, so my hair is medium length and not necissarily damaged; though my ends could use a little trimming :-) Therefore, my thoughts are that this product should really work wonders on my hair.
Here are a couple of the claims that had me sold:
Shampoo- "Nutri Gloss with a Nedw Pearl Protrein Complex protects hair against damage as it boosts shine and infuses touchable softness.
*Gently cleanses withought weighing hair down
*Nourishes hair for greater strength
*Ignites glossy, healthy shine
Conditioner- New Nutri Gloss Conditioning Treatment for medium to long hair that's damaged with a pearl protein complex:
*Transforms lifeless hair into vibrant and healthy-looking hair.
*Delivers lightweight moisture that conditions medium to long hair without weighing it down.
*Imparts sparkling brillance from root to tip.
After trying this product I was disappointed because my hair actually looked more dull than when I use my usual products. There was no touchable softness, and since my hair is not damaged, I wasn't looking for this to make my hair look less damaged. Now, in this product's defense, the directions on the conditioner advise weekly use for best results or more frequent use on extra dull or damaged hair. However, based on my initiaI results, I am not encouraged to try this product more frequently, if at all. I think another contributing factor may be that this product isn't made for natural (chemical free) hair or even African American hair...and I have both. So, before you decide whether or not you'd like to consider using this product, take those two things into consideration. It may work better for someone of a different hair make up. Overall, this isn't the product for me. I'm still searching. Any suggestions for a chemical free girl in search of a product that will give shine and touchable softness? I'm all ears :-)
