L'Oreal Paris Elseve Total Repair 5 Conditioner

I can't live without a conditioner. My hair is so dry and brittle at the ends( I always try different conditioners from different brands and I just can't find a right conditioner for my dry ends( I use split ends serums as well but the ends are still dry(

So this is L'Oreal Paris Elseve Total Repair 5 Conditioner. Here in Russia we have L'Oreal Paris Elseve hair care line that is similar to L'Oreal Paris Elvive line.

What company says: 

5 problems, 1 solution

Weak, limp, lifeless hair looks replenished, fullness restored.

- Reinforcing: Enriched with Pro-Keratin, the conditioning formula reinforces each hair fibre leaving it feeling strengthened and better able to resist daily wear and tear.
- Re-Surfacing: Enriched with Ceramide, a replica of hair’s natural cement, the formula helps restore a smoother feel to the hair fibre, leaving it soft to the touch with a healthy looking shine.

Helps restore 5 visible signs of replenished hair:

1. Feels stronger*
2. Looks fuller
3. Looks revitalised

Price: I purchased mine for $4,3 / 130 rub. It is 6,76 fl.oz. / 200 ml of the product.

My experience: The texture of the conditioner is creamy. It has a slightly translucent white color and a traditional synthetic shampoo scent. I don't love this type of scent because on some days it causes headache (just like today). *sigh*

L'Oreal Paris Elseve Total Repair 5 Conditioner is kind of absorbed into the hair unlike other conditioners I have tried before. And when it comes to rinsing it seems like there isn't much to rinse. And this fact makes me think that this conditioner works better than others. In fact it just helps to detangle the hair and doesn't make it greasy. That's all it's good features but I usually don't expect more from a conditioner. So L'Oreal Paris Elseve Total Repair 5 Conditioner is just another ordinary conditioner. Nothing to write home about.

ps  I have heard many good things about this conditioner from people living in other countries but I think this conditioner is nothing special. I just want to say maybe my conditioner which was made in Russia is different from that one which was made in Europe or in the US. I mean the brand is the same but the quality is different. What do you think? BTW can you recommend me a conditioner? Do you have any favorites?


  1. I don't like synthetic fragrances in hair products as well! Sorry I can't recommend you a conditioner because I have not found a good one yet... BTW I agree with you about quality of products made in Russia under brands like L'Oreal or Garnier etc... Big names produce average products.

  2. queen-offf-pain, let's look for perfect conditioner together!
