In my years of blogging as a beauty enthusiast, there’s one thing I can’t stress enough –our hair is our crowning glory. It is our hair that frames our face after all. Truth be told, whenever I get bored with my “look” or feel like I need a “change” all I have to do is switch up my hairstyle, and everything in the world is right again. When I feel down and need extra pampering, I’d visit the salon, have my hair colored, and I am good to go!
That is why throughout the years my hair has undergone various chemical treatments such as coloring, bleaching, perming and the likes. In addition to that, my hair is continuously subjected to various heat styling methods regularly. I never really paid much attention to it as I was more concerned with maintaining my appearance.
Obviously, I failed to notice that it is through these repetitive methods that I am damaging my hair further. With all honesty, I barely noticed how unhealthy my hair has been even after the winter season. We know that winter can be harsh not just to the skin but most especially to our hair, particularly to damaged hair like mine. But that didn’t really stop me from going back to my old ways come summer time. I’m quite the explorer and tend to try bold stuff without hesitation.
When I underwent IVF therapy, got pregnant, and up until now that I am breastfeeding, I took a rest from all the hair treatments to keep my baby safe. While I know it is quite far-fetched, I was hoping that with my hiatus, the damage to my hair would somewhat get reversed. Sadly, the cold weather (and most especially my hormones!) made my hair even more lifeless and prone to breakage.
Well, no one wants dull, dry, and lifeless hair, so it’s about time I do something. Thankfully, L’Oreal® came to my rescue! If you are wondering how I brought my over-processed, damaged hair back to life, I took L’Oréal Paris Elvive hair test to determine which products I needed to go from damaged to healthy hair. My diagnostic test revealed that I am at level 3 and will need the Protein Recharge as well as the Extraordinary Oil Treatment. What made things much easier is that these products are conveniently available at our local CVS store.

First and foremost of all, let me be crystal clear –the L’Oreal Elvive Protein Recharge is ahh-mazing! If I didn’t experience it myself, I wouldn’t believe it’s possible. This leave-in treatment boosts the strength and flexibility of the hair and in just 1 use my hair immediately felt stronger and healthier. What used to be stretchy strands prone to breaking looks and feels so much better. What I totally love is that it also reduces the risk of hair breakage by 97%. Now, I can use any styling tool and still be protected up to 450-degrees of heat.
As far as the L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment, I am impressed that this lightweight oil can deliver 10x nourishment in just one drop. After applying, my hair felt silky smooth, looked shinier, and it made my hair smell amazing too! Alas, I finally got to bid my split ends goodbye too. One drop goes so far that I don’t have to saturate my hair over.
While the L’Oreal Elvive Damage Erasing Balm wasn’t included in my test result, I’ve decided to add it to my arsenal too, and I am so glad I did! This rinse-out hair mask helped revived my brittle hair. After one quick wash with this balm, my hair feels hydrated and less dry. Believe it or not, all I did was just leave it on my hair for 3 minutes and rinse!
Thanks to L’Oréal Paris Elvive products, my hair is back to its healthy and bouncy state (even with the hormonal issues!). And the best thing about these? They are very affordable! I don’t have to break the bank just to restore my hair which I truly appreciate.
