L'Oreal Professionnel X-tenso Care Straight Serum

Hello girls,

I got my hair smoothened last December and I am enjoying it. I was confused over getting it done and even had second thoughts after paying the stylist half of the amount as pre booking fees.

Anyways I got it done finally and I want to share few insights about it before moving on with the review.

1. If you have extremely dry and brittle hair, please don’t try any permanent treatments.
2. Make sure your hair is in a healthy state before getting any chemical treatments done so that it copes better.
3. Make sure you use ONLY the products they suggest and yes those professional and salon products will be quite costly than the normal ones.
4. Maintain your hair by getting hair spa done once in a month.
5. Chemically treated hair will be dryer especially towards the ends leading to hair “breakage”. If you are not maintaining them well, you might start facing more hair breakage than hair loss. So make sure you use the hair pack/conditioner they suggest without fail.

With proper care, you will not face any excessive hair fall and will be able to maintain your hair well.

The stylist used L’Oreal for my smoothening session and I was asked to use the L’Oreal xtenso range comprising of a shampoo, mask and a serum. I have been using this for the past two months and I really like the effect. Today I will be reviewing the serum for you girls.

My experience:

After my smoothening session, my hair did get a little dry and maintaining the shine and bounce was a task. This product tackles all my hair needs. It felt light, non-greasy so I need not worry about my smoothened hair falling flat. It separates the strands very well making it easy for me to comb or brush my hair without causing much damage. It smells really nice but not over powering.

It adds a nice and healthy shine to my hair whilst retaining the bounce. It keeps my hair frizz free for a long time.

We all know that no product can cure split ends. We need to get rid of them. This product does not cure split ends but with regular usage, as the ends of hair does not get overly dry, the formation of split ends are reduced. 

The only con which I felt are, it makes the scalp greasy in two days.

On my smoothened hair:

What I Like:

Light and non-greasy.
Imparts nice and healthy shine.
Does not make my hair fall flat.

What I hate:
Makes hair greasy soon.
Maniac’s Rating
If you have chemically treated hair, this would be a great product to try. Totally worth the price!
