L'oreal Paris Smooth Intense Serum Review

By Thursday, June 25, 2015 , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,
Today I am going to review L'oreal Paris Smooth Intense Serum for you guys. But before getting started with the review I would like to tell you a little about my hair. I have curly dry unruly hair with major frizz issues and sometimes it seems nothing can be done to control them. So a serum is an important step in my hair care routine hence this review. So lets get rolling. 

Product Description:
L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum works through its anti-frizz and anti-volume action, curbing humidity led dampness of hair while preventing waves or volume from resuming their form.

  • 10 times smoother hair
  • Retains smoothness for 48 hours
  • Contains Argan Oil and Silk Protein
  • Keeps hair light and manageable
How to use:
  • Apply onto washed and dried or dry hair.
  • Pour several drops of serum onto the palm
  • Rub hands together and distribute evenly along the length of the hair
  • Do not rinse out.
Price: 6 USD

It comes in a plastic golden yellow coloured bottle with a flip top cap. Cap shuts tight so there are no leakages.

It is transparent in colour and very runny in consistency so be careful when you pour it, you might end up with more than you need. It is quite light and does not feel greasy or sticky at all. Because of its light texture it spreads easily on hair. Has floral scent which lasts for a while and you end up with nice smelling hair. It imparts shine to your hair and helps detangle your hair. Combing through them becomes a lot easier and it somewhat helps in unnecessary hair breakage. Now coming on to the most important thing the smoothing effect. Product claims that it provides instant smoothing effect and transforms unruly hair to smooth manageable hair. It does those things but the effect is not very long lasting. It lasts for max 2 -3 hours on my hair. When I use it on freshly washed hair it provides shine and helps detangle them but is not that effective in controlling frizziness which is my major concern and the reason I use hair serums in the first place. I find it works slightly better on second or third day hair and is able to control frizziness and fly aways to an extent but not all the way.

The Good:
  • Nice fragrance
  • Provides shine
  • Helps detangle your hair
  • Affordable
  • Travel Friendly
  • Easily available
The Bad:
  • Not that effective in controlling frizziness
  • Overall effects don’t last very long.

I am not highly impressed with serum for me it is an okay product and I am going to use it but my quest for a better product continues.
