Who Wants Soft, Shiny Hair? L’Oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Conditioner and Conditioning Treatment
I’m constantly battling dry and frizzy hair. I try to take it easy on the heat stylers and haven’t dyed my hair in a while, but living in a dry climate is hard on my locks. I know that split ends can’t be cured or sealed back together by a conditioner or cream, but I’m always on the look out for great products that can smooth my frizzies and help prevent further breakage and split ends.
L’Oreal’s Vive Pro line of shampoos and conditioners are pretty specific when it comes to targeting your hairs particular needs. The Nutri Gloss line says that it contains a pearl protien that smooths hair and adds shine. I tried the Conditioner for Medium to Long Hair that is Damaged (they also have formulas for Medium to Long Hair that is Normal to Fine and Medium to Long Hair that is Curly/Wavy) and the more concentrated Conditioning Treatment (on different days).
The Conditioner was a pretty thick formula that was light pink and smelled slightly of berries. A small amount coated my hair well and didn’t need long to absorb. The Conditioning Treatment was a thicker formula, light purple and seemed similar to the Conditioner in how it worked. With each type, I let my hair air dry one day and blow dried on another. Both resulted in very shiny and very soft hair. So soft that an updo the next day was frustratingly impossible, as my hair was just too slick to stay put. I still had some frizzies with both formulas, but they don’t target that symptom (alas I will have to try the Vive Pro Smooth Intense line in order to address them).
These conditioners are definitely going to be too heavy for fine hair, but they do have the formula for fine hair, as well as the formula for curly/wavy hair so your curls aren’t weighed down. Have you tried either of these on your hair? Let us know what you thought?
