Review: L'oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner

After winning a giveaway on L'oreal Beauty Confidential, I received a L'oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss pack which included shampoo, conditioner and conditioning shine spray!

I had received this pack more than a year ago and after finishing my last few bottles of Head and Shoulders shampoo and conditioner, I was able to finally try it out!

What the product claims to do..
"L’Oréal Paris ELVIVE Nutri-Gloss Shine Shampoo penetrates the hair to deliver feather-light, root-to-tip nutrition leaving it thoroughly clean and ultra-shiny all over."

"L’Oréal Paris ELVIVE Nutri-Gloss Shine Conditioner instantly detangles hair without weighing it down, restoring shine and vibrancy."

Elvive Nutri-Gloss Conditioning Shine Spray:
"A leave-in shine enhancing conditioner you can use everyday, in a spray that's light and quick to use"
(This product has been discontinued so I won't be doing a detailed review on it, a similiar product to this that L'oreal has just launched is this one I believe)

My take on the products...
Note: My hair is normal, my scalp is dry and I shower every second day because my hair ends up getting oily quick.

Initially, I had been using only the L'oreal conditioner and Pantene for shampoo. The conditioner had a very discreet pleasant scent and was working well on it's own. My hair didn't get oily until midway into the 3rd day since I only applied the conditioner to my ends and I felt like my hair had gotten less tangled making it smoother. 

Afterwards, I decided to use the shampoo and conditioner together to see if there would be any changes. After continually using both products every second day, I found that my hair was smooth, less tangled and it had gotten less oily. Along with the plus sides of using both the conditioner and the shampoo, my hair had started to become more stiff and 'straw-like', just how I remember my mum's hair to be which I suppose is the reason for the lack of shine. Occasionally I would use the conditioning shine spray on my ends which smooths out my hair, detangling any knots instantly along with giving a temporary shine.

I didn't think that the shampoo was necessary besides making my hair that little bit more smoother. The conditioner worked fine on its own along with whatever shampoo you would choose to use. I don't believe that the shampoo is 'feather-light' since I don't see any difference in volume.

The product also claims to have 'Proven results' for a 'mirror shine, cashmere touch'.
I think everyone who purchased this item was captivated by the idea of their hair being smooth and having an amazing shine. My hair is definitely smoother but I don't think I would compare it to cashmere and I had found no change in the amount of shine.

Overall, I think this product is perfect for me! It's the first time I've found a product that I've been really happy with! I might drop the shampoo though and use something else since I feel like I don't really need it. 

Available at: Any leading retailer

Price: $4~6

Would I recommend this product?
If you have normal hair like me and you're looking to have your hair become tangle free and smooth, then go for it! But your hair will become more 'straw-like and stiff, I can't really explain the texture. So if you have dry hair this product is definitely not for you!

Would I repurchase?
Yes! Definitely the conditioner. Plus it's affordable! *yay*

I read from a majority of reviews that putting the conditioner anywhere near the scalp, it'll create itchiness and a dry, flaky scalp. So be aware of that if you're planning on trying out this product!
Also, L'oreal has a whole range of products for different types of hair.
DamagedDryWavy or CoarseColoured and Split ends! But I'm not sure if the other products work just as well.


  1. Wow I didn't know L'oreal made hair products! And so pink/pretty as well haha. I use Herbal Essence because their shampoos and conditioners smell amazing but this looks pretty good as well

  2. Yeah and they have such a large range! 
    I have the purple Herbal Essence, I can't wait to try it out once I'm done with this shampoo & conditioner! It does smell amazing! I hope it works as well :D

  3. I've tried the Split ends one before and I did find it bit too dry for my hopeless dead hair... orz... 

    I might just pass this product for now but thank you for the review! 

  4. I've used these before, not the best but still doable for my hair. thanks for reviewing!

    Hope you had a great New Year!

  5. Really? Oh aw, I guess everyone's just different then. I think it's the best product I've used yet!
    You too :)!

  6. Aww damn :( That's too bad.  Not a prob!!! ♥
