L’Oreal EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System Review:
I’m basically a good girl. I drink lots of water, eat healthy (relatively) and generally lay off the strong stuff. But my hair is another story. It’s the party girl/I’ll try anything/What’s moderation? alter ego to my basically demure lifestyle. So, as a result it’s endured its share of bleach, hair dye, heat styling, sun exposure, experimental treatments & “honest accidents” this year and it is….in one word, damaged.
I’ve been on the search to find a system that works for my abused hair that would not cost me a fortune. I just don’t find hair products glamorous & I don’t want to pay glamorous prices for them. I’d rather save my splurge cash for the lipsticks!
When I saw this new line of L’Oreal sulfate free products I knew I had to at least give them a try. It’s been nearly two months now. Every time I shampoo, I’ve been alternating the ‘Intense Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner” duo with the super cool one-step “Cleansing Conditioner”. I’ve also been using the “Nourishing Leave-In Spray” every day.
Although these are drugstore brands, they feel, smell and function like a much higher-end hair care line. They are luxurious. The scent is light and almost tropical, the shampoo is so moisturizing that my hair begins to slip even as I’m massaging it in. The conditioner is just as moisturizing. I’ve been leaving it in for a few minutes while I complete my “shower tasks” then rinsing it out at the end and those extra minutes really give it time to sink in and benefit my strands. The cleansing conditioner works incredibly well. I thought it would be comparable to the popular Wen Cleansing Conditioner sold by Guthy Renker, but it does not coat my hair and weigh it down like the Wen products do. This leaves my hair feeling silky, light and soft. The true gem of this line, so far for me, is the Nourishing Leave-in Spray. This magical, sprayable creme is a beautiful dupe for the amazingly popular cult favorite ”Its a 10″ detangling spray, but at a small fraction of the price.
Verdict: Over-all, I’m very impressed. In drugstores now and definitely worth your penny!
Infused with Omega-3 & 6
No harsh salts
Free of heavy waxes that weigh hair down
Incredibly effective at keeping hair clean, manageble & moisturized.
If you use a lot of sticky hair products & styling aides, these may not be enough of a clarifying cleanser for you
If your hair is fine or oily, this system might be a bit too moisturizing
