Hi lovelies, hows life? So I am fortunate that I’ve got curly hair with good amount of volume which are very too good to look at. But only to look at, beacuase taming frizz is a daily battle and getting manageable hair is somewhat a dream for me. Frizzy hair look dull and are difficult to style. So ,usually it’s a “bad hair day” for me. So I am constantly looking for something that can manage my hair which puffs up like a lion’s mane.
The main cause of frizzy hair is lack of moisture. The cuticle layers on hair strands need moisture to make them smooth. So in my constant battle against frizz, I bought L’Oreal Elvive Smooth Anti Frizz Serum. And Did i win? lets discuss
About the brand:

It has a tricky textural combination as it is runny but not watery. It is thicker than water . The serum is easy to spread on palms before applying on hair.
Directions to use:
Apply to washed, towel dried hair. Spread a few drops of the serum on palms and then apply it along the lengths of your hair. Spread through your hair, paying particular attention to the hair ends. No need to rinse. It can also be applied to dry hair for shine and easy comb.

1.It makes the hair smooth and adds little shine to it.
2.Its Non sticky and non-greasy. So, doesn’t weigh the hair down.
3. It is mildly perfumed,so the smell is not overpowering.
4. The packing is travel friendly and user friendly.
Right after application my hair looks shiny and smooths well, but unfortunately for me the effects only lasts for about half an hour and then my frizz comes back with a vengeance and still I have to struggle to manage them.
So actually I lost.I read a lot of reviews about this product before buying it. There were some really good and promising reviews so my expectations from this product were very high. But I think I’m going to be the odd one out for this product as I’ve to say it didn’t work for me. I gave it a try for a good 4 months and recently just chucked it. I think I should re-kindle my love with The Body Shop beautifying oil.
So those was my thoughts on this serum.I hope you like the. Don’t forget to share your experience with me . I’ll see you guys soon.
