Beauty: L’Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser

(Valitettavasti tämä uudistettu Nutri-Gloss tuoteperhe ei ole vielä saatavilla Suomessa, joten jätin käännöksen tekemättä.)

L’Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser Shampoo | L’Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser Conditioner | L’Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser Gloss

Several months ago I went to a launch event for the new L’Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser product family. This product family is a new version of the Nutri-Gloss products, and it is meant to care for dull hair.

This is what L’Oreal Paris website says about the reasoning behind the range:

Over time, hair fibres can become dull due to a build-up of impurities and the hair cuticle becoming rough, which can disrupt light reflection.

Today, professional gloss techniques are used to remove impurities from hair fibres, and coat them with a glossing polish for long-lasting, weightless luminosity.

Inspired by this, L’Oréal Paris laboratories have created our first haircare range enriched with GLYCOGEL, to help hair look perfectly polished with 48hr show-stopping shine.

The product family consist of shampoo (cleanse and shine), conditioner (condition and gloss) and leave-in gloss (top coat finish). They are meant to make your hair glossy and shiny for 48h, and I can tell that I can notice a difference myself. Before this post I used the products for two weeks, and washed my hair every two or three days.

My hair feels softer and silkier, and yes, shinier. (The colour of the photos has been altered a bit because they were way too light, but nothing has been added to change the look of my hair.) My own favourite product out of the three is the gloss. It gives my hair a lovely shiny finish, it smells amazing, and it is not greasy at all, even if you spray it to your hands first.

I definitely recommend these for a dull hair, and they are actually now more than 50% off with current promotion at Superdrug, so go get yours if you want to give them a try. If you don’t live near one, just click the links below :)

Old Wives Tail Argan & Rosemary Organic Oil Treatment

(Suomeksi alla)

My hair has never been as long as it is now, so I have never had as many split ends either. And of course my bleached ends have made it much worse, but I’m not ready to give up on the ombre, OR the long hair yet. So I absolutely said yes when Old Wives Tail contacted me and asked if I’d like to review a product. I told them about my bleached ombre, split ends, and about my hair type being really frizzy, and they sent me the Argan & Rosemary Organic Oil Treatment to tackle my problems with. Their description of it says this is the perfect natural treatment to use as a deep conditioner or just a few drops can be used before styling to smooth and protect your hair from breakage. And that did sound like a product that would be perfect for me.

When I tried the treatment I did as they say in the instructions. I added the product to my damp hair, and then I left the product in for 1 hour. I actually had a nice warm bath while it was in my hair.. it was a lovely way to spend the time. After that I shampooed my hair (I had to wash it twice to get rid of all the product) and conditioned my ends only. Then I just towel dried my hair, brushed it and left it to air dry, and when it had, I eagerly went to look in the mirror. Seriously my hair has never looked so frizz-free after washing it! There was only a few flyaways, and that is a miracle when it comes to my hair ;). Like you can see in the photos below, my hair looks sleek (except for the few hairs that wind moved) and the ends look nicer as well. If you have a similar hair type than mine, I definitely recommend trying this treatment. I am a convert!

Old Wives Tail is a small company that sells organic hair products that are handmade. They don’t use any additives or chemicals, and they say the absolute NO to animal testing. In fact, 10% of their profits go to charities that work for stopping animal testing. They also have free worldwide delivery, which is amazing, so do give them a try :)!

Mulla ei ole ikinä aiemmin ollut näin pitkiä hiuksia, joten myös suuri määrä katkenneita latvoja on mulle uutta – ja tietysti blondatut latvat ei auta asiaa ollenkaan. En kuitenkaan ole vielä valmis luopumaan värjätyistä latvoista, TAI näin pitkistä hiuksista. Joten sanoin innoissani kyllä, kun Old Wives Tail otti yhteyttä ja kysyi haluaisinko testata jotain heidän tuotteistaan. Kerroin heille värjätyistä latvoistani, haaroittuvista latvoista, ja että hiukseni ovat ‘pörröiset’, ja he lähettivät minulle Argan & Rosemary Organic Oil Treatment:in hiusteni kesyttämiseen. Heidän tuoteselostuksensa kertoo tämän olevan täydellinen luonnollinen hoitoaine jota voi käyttää syvähoitona, ja pieninä määrinä ennen muotoilua myös hiusten vaurioitumisen estoon. Kuulosti siis täydelliseltä tuotteelta mun hiuksille.

Noudatin ohjeita kokeillessani tuotetta. Lisäsin tuotteen kosteisiin hiuksiin, ja jätin sen vaikuttamaan tunniksi. Itseasiassa otin ihanan lämpimän vaahtokylvyn siinä odotellessani, oikein hyvin kului se aika ;). Tämän jälkeen pesin hiukset (piti pestä ne kahdesti jotta pääsin eroon kaikesta siitä syvähoidosta) ja laitoin normaalia hoitoainetta pelkästään latvoihin. Tämän jälkeen pyyhekuivasin hiukset, harjasin ne, ja annoin niiden kuivua itsestään. Menin toiveikkaana sitten jokusen tunnin jälkeen katsomaan peiliin, ja ikinä ei ole hiukset pesun jälkeen näyttäneet yhtä sileiltä! Pörröisyyttä oli näkyvillä vain ihan vähän, ja se jos joku on ihme ;). Kuten yllä olevista kuvista näkyy, niin hiukseni näyttävät sileiltä (tosin ulkona tuuli vähän), ja latvatkin paljon paremmalta. Jos hiustyyppisi on samanlainen kuin minulla, niin suosittelen tuotetta lämpimästi!

Old Wives Tail on pieni yritys joka myy käsintehtyjä luomu-hiustuotteita. He eivät käytä lisäaineita eikä kemikaaleja, ja he ovat vastaan eläimillä testausta. Itseasiassa 10% heidän voitoistaan menee hyväntekeväisyysjärjestöille jotka tekevät töitä eläinkokeiden lopettamiseksi. Heillä on myös ilmainen maailmanlaajuinen postitus, joka on loistava syy suomalaisillekkin kokeilla heidän tuotteitaan :)!
