User Reviews

Strongest points
+ intoxicating oriental aroma
+ lasting volume of the bottle
+ make hair look glittering and lustrous
+ ensures easy combing if applied after the shower
Weakest points
- tend to worsen the condition of hair if used often for 2 months
- do not help much with a "dandelion"-hair problem
- flimsy switch of the doser cap (i.e. easy to un-fix)
Summary
I bought L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil two years ago after trying a sample of this oil and feeling absolutely fantastic about it. Oh, that wonderful smell! Back then I wished I could sense it on my hair for ages. The first outcome of using that oil after shampooing my hair was totally great and worth it: easy combing, glittering, healthy and smooth as silk hair and that oriental scent that made me feel as I had just been pampered in a spa salon. My hair is greasy at the roots and extra dry at the ends, so I used a drop of oil at the first and a spoonful at the ends. Despite its oily structure, the oil did not smudge or left unwanted traces of it on my clothes.
I had some troubles with the switch on the dozer cap - it got unfixed pretty quickly, but in comparison with the magic that oil did at the beginning, it was not an issue at all.
However, after some time of using L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil I noticed that my hair have become more rigid, straw-like and even dull while the glowing effect of before transformed into extra greasiness and the need to wash my hair more often. Plus, alas, the ends of my hail had never lost their "dandelion"-like quality and tended to be both unruly and undernourished. Witnessing all these results I discontinued using this oil and I still have half a bottle (that is 50 ml) left unattended.
To summarise, I would not in general recommend it because while in the short term this oil strikes you as a perfect hair routine, in the mid- and long-term it backfires with oh not so great results.

Strongest points
It worked for a couple of months.
Weakest points
It stopped being effective and has ingredients that I do not like the sound of.
Summary
I stopped using this by the time 2/3 of the bottle was left, it became ineffective after just a a couple of months. My hair felt nice and silky and the ends felt less dry and didn't break as much.. but then after using it a while my hair was dry and breaking up alot and just seemed dull. I read in the ingredients that it contains dimethicone, a silicone that after time builds up on the hair and attracts pollution and dirt from the air. Dimethicone is a silicone that can be hard to remove when built up and then dosn't allow your hair to breathe..mabey a good idea if you use this alot would be to shampoo hair twice over when washing to clear build-up. I won't be buying this product again or any other product with this typw of silicone.

Strongest points
Good result and a relatively low price
Weakest points
A little specialised to my mind
Summary
Worked surprisingly well for me! I used it before shampooing and found that it added softness and shine which is hard to do in my hair. I probably wouldn't choose to use it as I don't have the hair to really justify it but I rather liked the way it made my hair feel.

I received a sample of this product and decided to use it before blow-drying. It was easy to work through the hair and left my hair smooth and shiny. Despite being cheaper than many hair oils, it's one of the most effective.

Affordable - much cheaper than many hair oils. Pleasant scent. Only a small amount is needed. Non-greasy. Helps to detangle the hair. Left my thick hair soft, shiny and easy to manage.

None.

An easy to use hair oil that leaves the hair frizz-free, soft and manageable.
