L'Oreal Elvive Aqua Serum

I am not even joking but I must have tried almost all serums and hair products from the Elvive range till date. I am a huge fan of L'oreal's hair products if that's not evident by now and have found they have always worked so well for my thick, slightly frizzy, wavy hair. Being reasonably priced, I can use volumes of the product without worrying about it leaving me broke. The only issue, L'oreal discontinue their serums which leaves me buying them at overpriced rates from ebay. Don't do it this time L'oreal, pretty please.

The Aqua Serum is one that promises to add a keratin kick to the hair by repairing damage and restoring softness whilst protecting hair against heat tools. If you suffer from small flyaways especially around the crown area which can appear messy at time, this is fabulous at taming that. Why I love it is because when I use it around the crown area, it doesn't flatten any volume or make my hair limp. In fact the texture looks exactly as it is, minus any frizzy flyaway pieces.

I agree that the product would work on unruly thick frizzy hair and just as well as on normal hair that suffers from the same problems. This is because the formula albeit looks thick, has the ability to absorb into the hair cuticle at the speed of light leaving absolutely no greasy residue at all. This way those with fine hair shouldn't worry about this making hair limp or flat. 

There's no instant miraculous effect with this product but rather long term goodness I found with use. It keeps my hair in good condition and keeps them frizz free for the entire day when I use it on damp hair or prior to styling. Hair feels exactly the same, just healthier, softer and frizz free. I found no artificial looking gloss and shine with this product which is what I prefer. 

Overall, if you're looking a light weight hair serum that nourishes, protects and tames frizz, definitely check this out. I believe it only retails for a mere £5.99 which is why I love L'oreals hair products in the first place.
