L’Oreal Elvive – Dream Lengths

L’Oreal Elvive brought out the Dream Lengths hair collection a while back. It is for achieving long hair without the breakage and spilt ends. A few years ago I ended up chopping my hip length hair to just below my shoulders as I killed the ends with bleaching it in my ombre phase.

Ever since then my hair has just not wanted to grow back to that length and I miss having long hair. While using the Lee Stafford Hair Growth collection it has helped my hair grow longer but my hair still gets so knotty and I still get a lot of spilt ends.

I came across this shampoo in Asda, I had seen the adverts for it and thought perfect, I will try this range as I really want my hip length hair back without the hassle.

Product Details

Dreaming of beautiful long hair but struggling to achieve your dream lengths?

The longer your hair gets, the more it goes through and the more damaged it becomes. Split ends appear and you feel like you need to trim your tips. What if  you could protect your hair and help reinforce its lengths?

Our creamy, caring shampoo is enriched with a cocktail of Keratin, Vitamins and Castor Oil. The formula cleanses and helps to reinforce the hair. It helps to protect against breakage and reduces the appearance of split ends.

 

How To Use

Apply to wet hair, massage into a lather and then rinse. Follow with L’Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths Long Hair Conditioner.

Review

I have been using this product since March and have just finished the bottle.

I do not really like the smell of this product, it is not the nicest shampoo of their Elvive collection I have smelt but it does the job it says it will do so I can’t complain on the scent of this shampoo.

My hair is not as knotty as it normally is, I used to go out to work and come back home to find a knot had formed in the back of my hair and it was so painful and annoying to get these knots out, even using a wet brush. (Fine hair problems)

Since using this shampoo my hair is less knotty! I can even brush through it when its wet! Something I used to dread. It might not be the shampoo making my hair easy to comb through but its the product I’ve been using for months now so I am putting it down to that. So that is a huge plus to this shampoo as when your hair gets longer it gets more knotty. So this is a perfect shampoo to use if you have long hair.

I still get spilt ends but not as many which is good! So I can go that bit longer without a hair cut! Also my hair has is growing a lot better now, its gotten past the ‘I can’t do anything with my hair’ length stage! I think this is down to the shampoo plus it being paired with the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Range.

Overall

Overall I really like this shampoo and I would like to try out their other products in this range. I would buy this product again and use it while I am trying to achieve my Dream Length.

My friend Rachel has bought the conditioner and the hair mask so look out on her blog for her review of the product!

If you are like me and have fine hair and envy anyone who has thick luscious hair this post might help you achieve being one step closer to getting thicker hair without having to break the piggy bank for expensive extensions.

These are hair products that I’ve used for months and have worked the best to help achieve thicker looking and feeling hair. I have some affordable one’s and one that is a little pricy but works amazingly.

Mane ‘N Tail Shampoo & Conditioner

Mane ‘N Tail was originally made for horses hair. Don’t be put off using this product because it also actually helps hair grow faster. (I will be doing a review on this) I feel like this product really helps make hair feel thicker and it also strengthens hair. I use this every other day on my hair and it has a nice smell to it and the smell lingers hours after you have washed your hair. Ive been using this for a little over a year and i can tell a huge difference in my hair, it has helped my spilt ends and my hair always looks clean and shiny.

I purchased this product on amazon as it doesn’t sell in the UK,it’s £7.09 for both shampoo and conditioner 355ml.

L’Oreal: Elvive Fibrology

This is a very recent hair thickening product that L’Oreal has brought out. It has the shampoo and conditioner, hair mask and the thickness booster. Ive used the hair mask as a treatment after I’ve dyed my hair and when my hair starts to feel dry. I use the Shampoo in alternative with the Mane ‘N Tail shampoo. I really like the smell to these products as the smell is strong enough for you to smell it on your hair. Your supposed to use the thickness booster with conditioner but i don’t use conditioner so i just add it to my shampoo and live it a little longer in my hair. I find these products do the job, not as much as the Mane ‘N Tail but you can feel a difference and it makes your hair look less fine and limp looking.

I purchased these from boots, i got them when there was an offer. The Shampoo is £2.99 The thickness booster is £5.99 which i find a little expensive for the amount you get and the thickening mask is £5.09.

Lush: Big Sea Salt Shampoo

I absolutely love this product and i defiantly would recommend it to people who have fine hair. I use this every other time i wash my hair instead of Mane ‘n Tail or the Elvive. I take a little in my hand and rub it between my palms i then spread it over my head and massage it into my hair, i leave it on for a little bit and then i wash it all out. It smells nice and it makes my hair feel so volumized and thicker! I don’t use this every time i wash my hair as it can be quite drying to my hair. This is one of the best products I’ve purchased for my hair as it makes it actually look and feel thicker and I’ve noticed such a difference using this product. Ive had this for a few months now and it never fails me.

I purchased this from Lush for £12.25 it’s a lot of money for how much you get but i really recommend it as it does the job.

John Frieda: Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse

I’ve tried my fair share of thickening mousses, and some have made my hair feel greasy or have dried funny and left my hair feeling hard. I took a chance and picked this up and i really like it. I take a small amount of the mousse into my hands then i put half into my roots and the rest through my hair, i then flip my hair upside down and blow dry it to make sure all the product is dry. It gives me volume and some thickness and doesn’t make my hair feel sticky or clump up my hair.

I purchased this from boots and it’s £4.99

John Frieda: Root Booster

I use this before i use the mousse, i spray it on my roots flip my hair up and then blow dry it. It doesn’t leave your hair feeling sticky and it actually helps boost your roots a bit. Its £5.79 from boots.

I hope this post helps with anyone who has fine hair and are trying to achieve getting thicker looking hair. Some of the products are affordable if you are on a budget. If you would like more of a review before you purchase any of these products feel free to ask.
