L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Review | First Glance

26 January 2014 11 comments

How excited am I about this.

L'Oreal have finally launched their 17-years-in-the-works hair thickening range. Their patented technology surrounds their wonder molecule Filloxane, said to penetrate deep into the hair, expanding each individual hair diameter for fuller, thicker hairs.

The best part about their claims and what intrigues me most are the words "cumulative effect". Filloxane remains inside the hair fibre for long lasting thickness and you can build on each use over a number of washes to create thicker hair each time. 

I won't lie, I'm really excited.

The haircare range, priced akin to other Elvive haircare collections, consists of the L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo, Conditioner, Masque, Thickness Booster and Thickness Creation Double Serum. Bar the booster, I bought the whole lot, oops!

My first impressions are that I really like the packaging, it's not particularly chic or dressing-table-worthy but the colours work well together. If you're like me, ingredients in beauty products matter and the shampoo is SLS heavy, which I know I'm meant to be steering well clear of but I just couldn't resist. The conditioning products are cone heavy too so I've added photos of the ingredients for your perusal. 

The ingredients were difficult to get a good photo of due to the big curve of the pot but feel free to message me if you'd like them!

I used to get a hair treatment at the salon called Fiberceutic (also by L'Oreal) and I can only pray that this is an equivalent 'at home version' of that treatment because it worked fantastically well on my hair.

This review is only but Part 1. Although I want to be a real eager beaver and jump into using the range, I wanted to do a proper test of the products, with proper before and after photos, so you (and myself!) can gauge whether it really lives up to it's claims, so keep your eyes peeled as I'll be uploading that very soon!
