My Experience with the L’oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Oil Serum

Loreal Paris Total Repair 5 Oil Serum is made from an advanced technology imparting instant smoothing and nourishment to the hair. The serum when applied on wet hair gave a smooth finish. It can be used on wet and dry hair as well. It provides a shine to the hair and helped in reducing frizz.

The serum helps to detangle the hair after wash but was not helpful in reducing split ends. It is very light on the scalp which I liked. However, excess usage can make the scalp greasy like that of oil. So, one has to be careful with the application. The fragrance is very mild and is not bothersome. The quantity can last enough for 30-35 usage with medium hair lengths which is a good deal.

It did not actually repair the hair which it claims to do. Apart from this, it’s a great product for the hair.

Rating :

4.6/5 ( it stood up to all claims ).

Would I recommend L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Oil Serum?

Yes definitely. And I would recommend everyone to give it a try. It’s a pocket friendly serum and you will surely love it.
