I get a kick out of finding cheap stuff that are effective—or at least work well enough. That’s why I keep trying shampoos and conditioners bought from the supermarket, Watsons, or SM. My newest conditioner is the L’oreal Total Repair 5 Conditioner. Although I’ve already tried the shampoo and found it mediocre, when a friend mentioned to me that this makes her hair soft, I wanted to see if it’d make mine soft too.
Daily wear and tear can damage the hair’s surface and weaken the fibre. Hair becomes weak, looking limp and lifeless, losing its shine and silky feel. L’Oréal Laboratories have developed a Pro-Keratine and Ceramide enriched formula that helps restore 5 visible signs of replenished hair without weighing it down.
I was glad when I saw that this was available in small, 80 ml bottles which only cost around PhP 60. Yup, I’m a fan of travel-size bottles and samples! They’re cheap and I wouldn’t have a whole lot to use up if I end up not liking the product and just wanna finish up the bottle. LOL.
This smells nice. Typical conditioner smell, pretty much, but it’s clean and not overwhelming. The scent lingers for a few hours on my tresses. The dispenser of the 80 ml bottle has no pump or any other sort of regulator, but I don’t find this to be a problem.
The L’oreal Total Repair 5 Conditioner has a creamy but not so thick texture. It’s kinda fluffy. It spread.s all over wet tresses quite easily, and doesn’t require a lot of water or time to be rinsed out.
So does it soften and moisturize my dry, color-treated hair? Yes, but now a whole lot. This conditioner makes my hair easier to comb, and softer as compared to when I don’t use any conditioner on it, but the effect isn’t anything to rave about. My tresses still feel a little dry after using this. generally I find this conditioner pretty average. So as of now, the drugstore conditioner that still works best on my hair is Dove Straight and Silky.
L’oreal Total Repair 5 Conditioner- What I like about it:
- It has a pleasant smell that’s not too strong and lingers for some hours on the tresses.
- The consistency of it makes it easy to spread all over.
- It’s not hard to rinse out.
- It’s available in a small size, good for testing out the product.
- It doesn’t cause build-up on my scalp, or dandruff.
- It’s easy to find.
- It’s not expensive.
L’oreal Total Repair 5 Conditioner- What I don’t like about it:
- Not moisturizing enough for my dry, color-treated hair.
I like this a little better compared to the L’oreal Total Repair 5 Shampoo, but generally it’s still in the so-so category. No, I would not buy it again. Nor would I recommend this to ladies who need a lot of moisture in their tresses. For those with normal hair, this would probably be fine as a daily conditioner, but for those like me who have very dry hair, you might find this lacking.
