In Detail L’Oreal X-Tenso Care Intense Nutrive Shine Serum Review
Speaking of the packaging first, the product comes in this lovely white opaque plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. I would have liked a transparent packaging better, however this is not bad either. I love they have serums in 50 ml sizes because I carry this in my hand bag all the time.
The product is transparent with a nice serum like consistency which is non greasy and non oily. It actually feels light or less dense as compared to other serums in the market. If we talk about the fragrance, it has a slight floral fragrance to it which stays for a couple of hours at max.
How I apply it
After washing my hair, I air dry them almost 70-80% and while some moisture is still present in my hair, I take almost one full pump of it and work it along the length of my hair. I never use serums on the roots of my hair. After applying, I find that this gives an obvious healthy sheen to my manes. The fly aways are significantly tamed down. Hair becomes less tangly. I usually brush my hair after I apply this serum. So, the serum gets better distributed as well. Plus because of the serum, my hair do not tangle as much.
My room mate who has very frizzy hair, tried it on and this product helped her reduce the frizz to a great extent. In a nutshell Loreal x tenso serum makes my hair more manageable and makes it look very healthy.
When I speak about the drawbacks, I don’t have much to say except for the fact that I need to reapply this every 3-4 hours. However I would advice not to touch up more than twice or thrice as it would lead to too much product build up and might make your hair feel greasy. Moreover I wish this did something about split ends too, which may be too much to ask for but Meh! we always want more 😛
