Youtuber Emilieclarke reviewed the ingredients and compared it to Kerastase, another L'Oreal formula. I think this stuff is fantastic. I have very highly processed blonde hair ( natural base level is a 3) with tangles and dryness you can get with going blonder. Finally after 3 years of blondness, I have found a great conditioner than wont kill my budget. And by great, I mean softness and shine I have never had before. Go put it under your Christmas tree now.
First review of this, I alternate this with tresemme luxurious moisture as too much protein can cause hair to break. The first time I used it, my hair felt strong, not too soft, and healthy. The second time I used it, my hair was far too soft, and everytime I out my fingers through my hair, hair was falling out. Pretty scary! Not too sure if I left the conditioner on for too long ( only 2 mins) but it was literally too soft and seemed to be falling out. The day after, i woke up and the hair loss wasn't there and my hair was still soft but very dry in on the ends. Will review again soon
i bought the shampoo, conditioner and spray. I have really had hair fall cause i dyed and bleach my hair a lot and on top of that i grew out my hair all the way to the hip. so yeah.. my hair is super damaged with hair fall.
Everytime my hair recovers i dyed it again and my hair starts to get thin but this time my hair is super long and hard to manage so i decided to use this and it helped! When i wash my hair less hair falls out, it doesnt completely stop everything but the first week i used it, i noticed the difference. The shampoo isnt stong where it strips your hair and makes it dry and also really moisturising(I used the conditioner as well) but i still need to use hair mask and oils.
I have to say though that if you use it way too long your hair gets use to it and isnt that effective than when you first use it. So i suggest you to switch and then come back to it againThe smell is nice and isnt overpowering.
Overall it does what it says, makes my hair healthier but after awhile i need to switch and come back again. The conditioner isnt super conditioning and i still need to use a mask and all. But the shampoo and spray makes my hair stronger. I kept trying to find reviews on the spray but i cant find any! ): the spray is really nice, isnt oily or sticky!
I am in love with JLO and her gorgeous hair. My hair is thick and has somewhat a bit of wave. I was so enthusiastic to use this shampoo not only because I wanted celeb worthy hair but because my hair is always falling off my head (not balding or anything, just shedding I guess. I often refer to my hair as fur :P) with the X3 the product is specialized for " fragile hair with tendency to fall". First Impressions, I totally loved the shampoo the scent was amazing and it made the whole bathroom smell amazing. Aside from the scent I found that the shampoo improved my hair elasticity, my waves were a little more defined after the first use. As for the hair falling I am sad to report it did not help at all. Although it was somewhat disappointing, I did appreciate the shampoo for the other hidden treasures it contained. I would definitely repurchased.
When I first used this Shampoo and the condtioner my hair was silky soft afterwards with alot of body, however after a few times of using it wasnt as effective and it felt like there was quite a build up of product in my hair! I have a very sensitive scalp and this has really irritated my scalp so its defintely a no for anyone with a senstive scalp. It does seem to work for hair fall though, as I have noticed I have had less hair fall since using it. I will not be buying it again.
Okay so, let me start off by saying I'm first reviewing the very first version released in Mexico (In 2011) and I would've given it 5 stars. Cause later the line got reformulated for the bad (2 stars)
I was using an Elvive total repair shampoo before trying this, because I was lightening my hair with a chamomille shampoo that was drying. I alternated them and my hair really liked the Elvive shampoo, so when I ran out of it, I asked my mom to repurchase it. But to my surprise, she arrived home with a new shampoo and conditioner that were just released, I remember seeing them as treasures. I was like wooow, these look so luxurious (and they were also big bottles)
I always used this after washing with the matching shampoo, applied on dripping hair and left only while washing my body and then rinsed with cool water. My hair started getting super healthy, like never before: Amazing shine, silkiness, clean, lightweight but not flyaway or nowhere near dry, soft, and my hair had definition and body. My hair was always left soo clean, even after sleeping on it, the next whole day it would be clean (And the greasiness would start appearing at night suddenly!! Like that would let me wash my hair again that night!) I started using honey and almond oil masks two times a week, and an avocado/mayonnaise/Egg mask once in a while, and also a lightweight spray leave in.
All that made my hair silky and healthy like never before, I was amazed with my hair. I would look myself in the mirror all the time, and also see my hair in the sun, reflecting all the light and undertones gorgeously.
My mother's wavy hair also changed so much, her spirals were amazingly silky and shiny and I couldn't stop touching them, I would always twist her waves more with my fingers.
After around a month and a half or more, I noticed my hair started getting quite meh, more boring and boring and dull... I didn't know what was happening but I just continued with my haircare routine. When I finished up the shampoo, a lot of conditioner was left. But after finishing the shampoo, my hair was so boring and not healthy again.... I never realized it was BUILD UP! ....GOD! I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT BUILD UP WAS! I never knew I had to clarify my hair once in a while so haircare products kept working well with my hair. This is a silicone line, so of course I needed to clarify.. but I didn't know anything about build up or silicones back then. If I had clarified, my hair would've never gotten boring!! And let me say the boredom with this line started when using conditioner for my cinnamon lightening treatments (leaving the conditioner with it overnight once a week) so of course the product was going to build up! I didn't repurchase cause I just thought my hair stopped liking it, but it was only build up! Grr
Then, 6 months later I repurchased the shampoo... here goes the bad review
In 2012 I started having some hair loss problems around April (due to hormones, stress, lack of sleep, dandruff and many harsh shampoos) and the problem aggravated drastically around August. I immediately thought of buying this shampoo! Cause I remembered how lovely it left my hair and I already knew what build up was! But guess what? it got reformulated and it worsened my hair loss! LIKE HORRIBLY!!! My hair strands would fall out and fly away everytime I touched my hair. At first It made my hair glossy but not so clean, and then the hair loss got so much worse. I experienced the worst stuff with this new version: Dirty hair, build up, horrible hair loss, dirty scalp, static, dull hair, SMELLY hair, frizz, sponginess and whatnot
I stopped using it and went back to JUST one therapeutic shampoo I was using and my hair loss stopped dramatically, to a point where I only shed about 1-3 strands of hair during shower... seriously.
The only reason why I gave it one more lippie, is because it could actually help my hair when shampooing with it like only 5 seconds after washing with the harsh anti dandruff shampoo, cause this way it moisturized it a bit at least, and I actually had the lovely scent on my hair. But only this way... using it alone was a catastrophy.
I am so disappointed in you L'oreal, this new version is plain (excuse me for the use of the word) SHIT.
I purchased this shampoo on special and I wanted to try it as it said to help fallung hair as I lose alit if hair. I have colored fine hair and my hair feels very light and soft when air dried and even softer when blow dried. I didn't purchased the conditioner.I would buy again!
I brought this on special offer without knowing anything about it, but since L'Oreal is such a big well known brand I thought why not?
It's sooooooo lovely and makes my hair feel so soft even after hair drying and straightening!
The only bad thing about is that I have quite greasy hair and it didn't really help much with greasiness, but I suppose it's not meant to.
But I would buy this shampoo again because it makes my hair feel so soft and shiny!
used this this morning, saw commerical and thought why not, I was out, it lathered very well, and must say my hair is not weighed down and feels very soft and smooth, very good shapoo for the price. My hair is fine, and damaged and worked very welll for this concern,.
I have used this shampoo twice and do not like it. It causes my hair to be unmanageable and frizzy, taking me more time to do my blowout. I have better results with Pantene! I was hopeful as I really like some L'Oreal makeup and LOVE the Professionnel series (I use one of the masques and it is amazing, I highly recommend them!). I will be letting my son or husband use it up as it won't come near my hair or my daughter's.
