Poppin’ Curls With L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

Hi Lovelies!

I’ve said a temporary goodbye to my straightened hair, (which I’d been rocking for the past few weeks) to make way for my coily curls! The maintenance of my natural hair can be stressful at times, but then again, I like to experiment with different products and see which one can handle my hair the best.

About a month ago there was a buy-one-get-one-free offer on all L’Oréal haircare products in my local drugstore, so I decided to try out some products from the L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curls range.

2016-04-12 17.24.00With all the products out there for dry, curly hair and afro hair, I guess L’Oréal didn’t want to be left alone and created a natural oil-infused line for ALL TYPES OF HAIR. I’ve heard good reviews about their curl range, so I had to try it out myself.

2016-04-12 17.21.33From the Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curl range I bought the Nourishment Cleansing Conditioner and the Oil-In-Milk cream. Both products are infused with Amla oil extract and 6 precious flower oils, which apparently causes bouncy, nourished and flexible curls. The flower oils from what I could read from the bottle are:

Sunflower, Linum(flax)flower, Chamomile, Lotus flower, Dog-rose, Gardenia Flower

And other oils: Soybean, Coconut and Mineral oil.

20160412_173032_0012016-04-12 17.22.44According to L’Oréal these products will help you get “Perfectly Defined And Nourished Curls”. Well, I have to say that my curls were poppin’ and nourished for sure, but not perfect. I’m still working on getting defined curls when I do my flat twist outs though.

20160411_18333120160412_190006The Nourishment Cleansing Conditioner is basically L’Oréal’s answer to co-washing ( conditioner-only washing) instead of using regular shampoo.

2016-04-12 17.25.20What I like:

  • Makes my hair feeling soft and more flexible right away
  • It detangles my curls
  • My curls are more defined and my fair feels nourished
  • The smell is sweet, there’s some caramel in it

What I don’t like:

  • It’s NOT sulfate-free and alcohol-free

The Oil-In-Milk cream I’ve used on my towel-dry hair as my base for my flat twist outs.

2016-04-12 17.25.35What I like:

  • Same as the cleansing conditioner

What I don’t like:

  • It’s NOT alcohol-fee
  • The bottle is too small(200ml) compared to the size of the cleansing conditioner(400ml)

Nevertheless, I love how my curls turned out from using these products, although not perfectly defined, but I’m getting there! I personally have very dry hair and have experienced this with other products, but I didn’t suffer from any dryness when using the Extraordinary Oil Curl range. So I’d definitely recommend it if you’re suffering from dry hair and want those bouncy poppin’ curls.

Below are some more photos of the result.

  1. Love your natural curls Jey! 🙂 And a great post review by the way. Found your blog while looking up reviews for the L’oreal Extraordinary Oil Cleansing Conditioner – just picked up a bottle in the store and although my hair is naturally straight, was hoping the extra moisture from this cleansing conditioner would be helpful to use once a week. Really like the other L’oreal Cleansing Balms which I use daily now. Have you tried their other cleansing balms?

    1. Hi Karen, Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my post. I’m happy to read my review was a bit helpful. I love the cleansing conditioner a lot, it makes my hair feel really soft. Even if you have straight hair you should be able to notice a difference. As for the other L’Oreal cleansing balms, I have yet to try them out though. L’ Oreal always launches products by the minute, which is sometimes hard to keep up! Ha! Anyways, thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend! xo, Jey.
