So, I have been using this L’oreal Total Repair 5 hair masque for a while now. I am about to finish it, so there could not be a better time to review it.
L’oreal Total Repair 5 is supposed to be a Total Repairing Masque for damaged hair. The packaging refers to it as a 2 minute intensive treatment, which means you have to use it for 2 minutes on washed hair, and then rinsed off. It is supposed to fight 5 signs of hair damage, which are: Hair fall, Dryness, Roughness, Dullness and Split Ends.
Price: INR 350 for 200 gm.
The masque is white in color, thick creamy consistency and has a very pleasant smell. All the things to like!!! It is packed in a sturdy white and red plastic container, and given the thick creamy consistency of the product, I feel is the best packing option.
I have fine straight hair, so roughness was not my concern while buying L’oreal Total Repair Masque. I was facing hair fall, split ends and slight dullness.
I have been using this masque for almost 3 months now. Rather than using it as an intensive treatment, I have been using it as a regular conditioner after every wash, and it has lasted me a long time. The masque works really well as a conditioner. It leaves hair conditioned, smooth and less tangled. It makes hair smoother and shinier on natural drying ( I don’t often use hair dryer and love to air dry my hair). I noticed a huge difference how my hair look when I use this masque and at times I skip using it. And I enjoy the subtle fragrance it leaves behind!
But unfortunately, it has done nothing to the problem of hair fall. I am still having the same amount of hair fall I was having earlier, so I guess it is not effective in controlling that. At least it failed in my case!
Apart from that, I feel it is a decent and pocket friendly product, that can be used as a conditioner as well, if hair fall is not your main concern. I would suggest using it as your regular hair conditioner, because it works quite well on that front. In case you need help with hair fall, a separate and better product can be included along with it.
Flawed or Fab?
Fab with little flaws 🙂
Will I repurchase L’oreal Total Repair 5 Masque again?
Yes, but to be used as a hair conditioner and not intensive hair treatment.
Have any of you used this hair masque?? Please comment to share your experiences.
