Hey hair besties! I’ll be reviewing L’oreal’s Elive hair mask balm. I received this product free to try. Thank you L’Oreal Paris and Influenster.
This is a hair mask for colored and damaged hair. It’s claims to repair damaged hair in just one use. It also is supposed to work like a deep conditioner, that nourishes your hair.
It claims to smooth out your hair and protect it from further damage. It is specifically formulated for dry, damaged, and color treated hair. Of course if you have the shampoo and conditioner it will have the optimal results you’re looking for.
You’re supposed to use this instead of your conditioner. You leave it on for 3 to 5 minutes and then rinse. The recommended use is 1 to 2 times a week.
Here’s the deal; my color lasts on me because I wash my hair once a week. While some of you can’t do this. I just can’t wash it more than that unless something happens (I.E. I’m drenched in sweat from a workout; which is rare).
When I do wash my hair, I wash it in cold water. Your color last longer this way; it was recommended to me by my stylist and I swear by it. Once it is washed, I condition it with my own conditioner and leave it in for 3 to 4 minutes then rinse.
Once I am out of the shower, with my hair still wet I apply the hair mask. Some hair masks I leave on for 3 to 4 hours and others I leave on overnight. The first time I used Elive I left it on for 3 hours. Then I rinsed it out with cold water. Then I applied a leave in conditioner; then styled it.
I know this may seem like a lot but if you want to have silky soft hair, the time you put into your hair is worth it. I definitely recommend this product. It works great and its affordable. Give it a try too and let me know what you guys think. Till next time babes! xoxo
