As I have mentioned in my other previous posts, I have thick coarse hair which usually tend to get dry. I have tried numerous conditioners. I use hair masks on a regular basis because its hard for me to find regular conditioners which moisturise my hair enough. So I heard Mrs. Aishwarya Rai Bachhan on television and got the Loreal Total Repair 5 Hair mask.

In Detail L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Hair Masque Review and My Experience

It comes in a white opaque tub packaging with a red coloured top. Tub Packaging is sure quite easy to use but it does get quite messy in the shower. It has has all the details mentioned on the packaging. The screw top is sturdy so I guess I can consider it to be travel friendly. I wish they had this in a smaller size, may be in a tube.

The consistency is creamy and moderately thick. Because of the nice creamy consistency, it is easy to apply on the hair. Smells almost like all the other Loreal products.

How I Use it
After Towel Drying my hair: When I use it after towel drying my hair, I need slightly more than the regular amount. I leave it on for 2 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.
Without towel Drying, After washing my hair with shampoo: Again, I apply it evenly on the lengths if my hair concentrating on the ends. After letting it sit for 2 minutes approximately, I wash it off with cold water.

Whichever way I use it, I find that this hair masque makes my hair very soft and silky to touch. Does not make my hair very shiny but at the same time does not let my hair look dull. Now let us talk about the long term benefits, does it really repair my hair? I would say not really. It did made my hair feel soft for a couple of days but I don’t see a long lasting repairing effect on my hair. As you stop using this product, hair turns back to its usual self. So for lasting effects, one needs to continue using this product. Also, due to some reason if you apply more than the required amount of the product, it tends to build up in the hair and makes the hair greasy. I would say this will be best suited for beauties with dry hair type.
