Yay! Shine is back! We have had seasons and seasons of matte hair obsession and now it’s time to get shiny! I am pleased. I liked matte, but there’s nothing like shiny hair when it comes to a healthy, super fresh look. Get ready for the L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser Range.
Now not only does this range promise a shine worthy of being coined a ‘hair care laminator’ but it also takes its technological inspiration from the high shine demanded by the car industry. Well that got my attention!
L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri Gloss Luminiser Products
There are 3 products in the range:
- L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri Gloss Luminiser Shampoo (£2.99 for 250ml, £3.99 400ml)
- L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri Gloss Luminiser Conditioner (£2.99 for 250ml, £3.99 400ml)
- L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri Gloss Luminiser Gloss (£9.99)
The system is all about creating shine on 2 crucial levels using Glycogel technology. On a microscopic level, fibre surface is smoothed, and on a macroscopic level, all the hair is magentically aligned side by side for maximum light reflection. This means that each individual hair shines, but also all the hair is arranged to allow all the hair to shine together from every angle.
Until now, technology has only focused on individual hairs, however, this Glycogel technology, with its multi-level action, take shine to a new level – 4 times shinier than before application – that has been proven to stay as shiny for up to 48 hours after, as it is straight after use. Now that’s impressive!
The shampoo uses a 3 AHA blend to purify and smooth the surface of the hair shaft. The conditioner contains positively charged silicones and shine polymers that wrap around each hair with a magnetic effect for shine and super smoothness. Finally the Gloss is a shine-booster that uses a hexagonal structure to boost light reflection. You can use this on damp or dry hair (or both!). This stuff is incredible. I tried it on my dry hair and it made it dazzle!
I feel rather excited about these products and will try them out and update here as soon as possible. So stay tuned!
The L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri Gloss Luminiser Range will start to appear in store over the next few weeks and should be everywhere by the beginning of April. Find Elvive at Boots.
