L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Review

Hair oils are slowly becoming a must have product in women's hair routines and there are now so many on the market. I must admit i am pretty new to the hair oil craze but this new Extraordinary Oil from L'oreal has really opened my eyes to the world of oil and i now swear by it. I have fine hair but sooo much of it and i also have very oily hair which is why i had been staying clear of hair oils as i just thought the two together would just cause some huge mess, i was very wrong. Although i have oily roots my ends are incredibly dry, i straighten my hair pretty much everyday, as i have a short style it means straightening is the only way to keep my style in place as such. I really wish i could just dry and go or even air dry as it would do my hair so many favours but with the style i have the 'bed head' look certainly doesn't work. I am currently growing my hair so one day i will be rocking the 'bed head' look. This is another reason as to why my ends are pretty dry, growing my hair always means i am such a wimp when it comes to going to the hairdresser, i am in dyer need of a tidy up but i just can't bring myself to do it as i'm afraid they will just go scissor happy, anyone else find hairdressers do this?

So this is why the L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil is now my new best friend. The L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil has transformed my dry brittle ends into silky smooth locks and incredibly shiny locks at that! It contains a precious blend of 6 flower extracts with nourishing properties for sumptuous softness and luxurious shine.

The product itself smells divine, like a sweet men's aftershave, sounds awful but really is lovely. It comes is a gorgeously elegant glass bottle which really gives it that higher end hair care feel but i must say that doesn't make it very good for traveling if you travel a lot. It is available for all hair types and also coloured hair, i don't have coloured hair so i'm using the one for all hair types. 

All you need to do is rub 2 precious drops between the palms of your hands and apply to the ends of your hair, either damp or dry. It works amazingly with both, i use it on damp hair and then again after i have styled my hair.

Like i said earlier i have been slightly worried about using hair oils as i suffer with oily hair but as long as i just keep it on the ends of my hair it doesn't make my hair extra greasy and it doesn't weigh it down either, my hair honestly loves it.

I am now a total hair oil convert and i can't wait to try more, but for now the Extraordinary Oil is the one for me.

RRP L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil £9.99

Extraordinary Oil is available from for £6.99 what an amazing saving?

Do you love hair oils? Have you tried this Extraordinary Oil?



  1. Never heard of this hair oil before :) I wanted to try the L'oreal Mythic Oil for the longest time since I'm running low on my Moroccanoil which is pretty pricey. I'd love to find a good dupe! xx

  2. I've only ever tried the VO5 one but this is calling my name every time I'm in superdrug haha x

  3. I have this one and I also love it. The scent is gorgeous.

  4. I'm using it at the moment and am really impressed. Plus the bottle looks beautiful. Definitely a thumbs up from me. :)

  5. I love hair oils, this one is definitely on my list! :) x

  6. i love this! i bought it last week after running out of morrocon oil (and forgot to order a back up online) so rushed to boots to buy anything that resembled morrocon oil. i was pleasantly suprised, would say its on par with morrocon oil and cheaper!

  7. Oil for my hair is literally MUST HAVE! this product sounds nice, would be nice to try it:)
    PS. Great blog, keep on a good work:)

  8. This is my favourite hair product and you did a fab job reviewing it! x
