Hair Care : L’Oreal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Anti – Frizz Serum
I straighten my locks with flat iron quite frequently and that results in shine less, dull hair. So along with the heat protectant I tend to apply some serum to my tresses because it gives some shine and also reduces frizziness.L’oreal Elvive Smooth Intense Anti Frizz Serum is the serum that I am using currently and I would like to review it for you today.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Alive Smooth Intense Anti- Frizz Serum:
Who doesn’t crave for smooth, shiny, silky tresses? I do and I know most of you do. So in an attempt to achieve beautiful hair I used this product, and I am satisfied but not blown away with the results it gave. I apply it on damp tresses then blow dry my hair before straightening with a flat iron. It smells quite nice and makes your locks smooth especially in the ends. The end result after flat ironing is not as I prefer it to be (I want super smooth hair that catches the light).But it does not disappoint me either. I just need one or two pumps for my medium length locks. I pump it onto my pals, rub my palms together then apply it on my tresses. Easy to apply and spreads quickly. My tresses are definitely more manageable after using this serum. Some times when I am in a hurry I apply it on dry hair too. One thing I detest about this is that it causes buildup in your tresses and I need to wash my hair every time I use it. I usually straighten my hair and then leave it unwashed for 2-3 days to prevent maximum damage and that is simply not possible when I use this product. Here’s how the L’Oreal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Anti-Frizz Serum looks:
