Hey ladies! If you are like me then your hair care routines knows no bounds. From shampooing, conditioning, straightening, curling, drying, protecting, sleeking, etc. There are so many steps to take when styling and taking care of your hair. I am so excited to review this VoxBox from Influenster, and share with you guys my thoughts. After receiving this bunch of hair products in the mail I took a couple of weeks in order to fully form my opinion and provide my readers with the best review possible of this line of hair products from Loreal, that way you guys can read before you buy.
First things first, here’s what I got:
L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Ultimate Straight System
My thoughts: My natural hair texture is straight, however I regularly use a straightener for sleeping on my hair as well as air drying leaves my hair with weird waves and groves in the texture. Honestly, after trying out just the shampoo and conditioner and then on top of that the other straightening products I have had not used my straightener once.
- Straightening Shampoo & Straightening Conditioner: My first impression of the shampoo and conditioner was how good the smell was! Oh my goodness the scent is very fresh and clean smelling instead of a heavy candy sweet scent. As well, I love the packaging from this whole line, using the rose golds and pink tones on the black bottles is very eye-catching. One thing about the shampoo I really enjoyed was that it lathered pretty well in my hair, and left my hair feeling actually clean. Instead of most of my shampoos that leave my hair feeling somewhat clean. Yet, my hair did not feel stripped or dry after use. When it came to using the conditioner, I was surprised at the results. I have naturally thin hair, and can’t use thick conditioners that weight my hair down. This conditioner did not weigh my ends down at all, instead they were left feeling smooth and shiny.
- Straight Boosting Pre-conditioner: This is the step that you are told from the packaging between the shampoo and conditioner. I do not use this step every time I shower, because honestly I don’t have a ton of time to shower everyday. I chose to use this step on days when I really wanted my hair to look it’s best for when I was going out with my family or friends for the day. This step was different for I never have used an in between shampoo and conditioner product before. I was expecting that it might leave my hair with a dirty look considering the directions tell you to apply it all over you hair, and not just at your ends. But to my enjoyment, after all three steps my hair was not anything but looking as I desired it would: straight, clean, and shiny.
- Straight perfecting balm: This is the step I enjoyed using the most when it came to the line of Loreal products. The instructions told me to use this after my hair was dry and to apply all over the bottom half of my hair. Then continue to style my hair with either a blow dryer and round brush or straightener. This product adds extra heat protection for the use of hot tools, but I didn’t even need to use any after how well the shampoo and conditioner worked to keep my waves at bay. I like to use the balm to add the extra sheen and softness to my ends, whereas they are usually brittle and dry.
Overall I am really impressed with the level of care that Loreal put into this line of hair care. It seems the company is moving in a more professional route, with the consumer’s needs in mind. Let me know if you guys have received or bought the line, and what your thoughts are. 🙂
