The L’Oreal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Wonder Water, which just launched in the UK, is getting talked about a lot, but is it as good as they say? How do you use it and does it work? I have all the details here.
Actually, I haven’t seen any of the advertising for this product, but I know that there must be a lot because I’ve received so many messages from readers, and via my Instagram, asking what I think about it. So I thought I’d better give it a go.
I have used it twice now. Once following it with my usual leave in styling products, and then the second time, I put it to the ultimate test, and added no further product after rinsing it out. But first of all, let’s get down to the basics.
What is L’Oréal Paris Wonder Water?
- Rinse out treatment designed to add silky softness in 8 seconds
- Formulated using Lamellar Water Technology
- Watery, weightless consistency
- Uses amino acids and moisturising agents to really lock in essential hydration
- Target signs of damage
- Smooths the surface of your hair as it fills any gaps between fibres
- Creates a healthy looking sheen on the hair
- Combats frizz
- Doesn’t compromise on natural movement and bounce
- Suitable for all hair types including fine and colour treated
How Do You Use L’Oreal Wonder Water?
The product is so easy to use. I just wash my hair, squeeze out the excess water and then squirt the Wonder Water down the mid-lengths and ends and then I kind of squelch it into the hair for a short time before rinsing it out. Apparently you can use conditioner afterwards if you feel you need it, but I literally just read that now, so haven’t tried doing that.
Does L’Oreal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Wonder Water Work?
Depending on what you’re wanting this quick treatment to do, I’d say that the answer to this is yes! I found that I could comb through my wet hair without needing any detangling products, and then once I had added my L’Oreal Pli, and my Mythic Oil* which are my routine regulars, my hair was left noticeably shinier and felt super soft and smooth.
As I said at the top, the second time I used it, I skipped my Pli and hair oil, just to see what it can do on it’s own. I prefer it with my regular products, but I was still extremely impressed with how untangled and shiny my hair looked. It wasn’t as smooth and shiny as the first time I used it, but it still really performed.
Is L’Oreal Wonder Water bad for hair?
Quite a few people have asked this, because we are always worrying about products that seem too good to be true. Wonder Water is silicone-free, so if that’s a concern, you can forget about that.
I wouldn’t say that this is good or bad for hair, it’s just an effective product that temporarily fills the cracks in your hair in a lightweight formula without the use of silicone. I’d liken it to a good smoothing primer for skin.
