Aqua Serum from L’Oreal


L’Oreal Elvive Smooth & Polish Aqua Serum – £5.99*

Since taking the plunge and going blonde I have amped up the levels when it comes to oil and nourishment to keep my tresses looking sleek and frizz free. This had all been working a treat until the big old Sun came into town and resulted in dried out hair. You would think that adding more oil would be the answer to all my problems, however even though my tips are looking worse for wear, slathering on the oil resulted in my fine hair becoming more flat and lifeless. Instead of fighting with the oil, taming with conditioner or spending my days with my hair tied up, I’ve been giving this new release from L’Oreal a try.

As opposed to being an oil, L’Oreal are offering up a hair saving serum. Called Smooth & Polish Aqua Serum this is L’Oreal’s first 24hr anti-frizz product that not only smooths but also protects. What makes this product brilliant, and perfect for my hair, is that the formula is weightless. I can apply it to my dried out tresses and the product is instantly absorbed – no feeling or trace is left behind. Whether applied to damp or dry hair it helps to smooth out any flyaways and prevent the tips from looking as dry.

What I also love about this serum is the fact that it is enriched with Thermo-Protect, an ingredient known for it’s heat protecting properties. I am always conscious when it comes to layering up the products on my hair in fear of weighing it down, it’s great to know that this covers all the bases. If all that wasn’t enough, it’s also a steal from Boots at only £5.99 and it  smells incredible. Needless to say this has me ditching the oils and reaching for the serum!

    This serum sounds great, think I might try it for my blonde locks as winter dries the hair out just as much as summer does too. Love how it’s so affordable too! xo

    For that price, I definitely need to consider this product. I’ve never really looked into hair oils and serums before because my hair isn’t very dry but I am trying to care for my hair a bit more now so this might be a good product to start off with.

    • Even on hair that isn’t overly dry it will help to keep it looking sleek and frizz free throughout the day =) xx

    Thanks for this very helpful review.
    My hair is a wooly, dull, oily-at-the-roots-parched-at-the-ends mass right now. My hair doesn’t seem to like oils, and I detest heavy products, so was deliberating about this. Your review has clinched it! : )
