Hello sweeties!! I have always had a penchant for long locks and am thankfully blessed with wonderful wavy hair that look like they have character – IF they stay on my head! Yes I have been facing severe hair fall problem since long time. It is worsened by the fact that my hair are very thick and tend to be on the dry side – definitely a combination that is hard to handle. So at the suggestion of a friend who has a hair spa, I picked up the L’Oreal Professional Serie Expert Force Vector Glycocell shampoo. This is a salon grade shampoo which is especially formulated for treating dry, damaged and life-less hair. The fact that I am on my second bottle could mean a lot of things. Exactly what? Here is a detailed experience…L’Oreal Professional Série Expert Force Vector Shampoo Review

In Detail L’Oreal Professional Série Expert Force Vector Shampoo Review and My Experience
The product has a clear gel-like consistency and is slightly tinged. It looks like water but is a bit thicker in texture. The smell is just about okay and it does not tend to linger for long. It comes in a pretty looking transparent pomegranate-red bottle with a silver flip-open cap.
Don’t be fooled by first impressions when you use the product because it doesn’t lather too much – I feel the need to shampoo twice, since I oil my hair before a wash every time.
The product added instant bounce and a natural shine and softness to my hair from the very first use. In fact it even gives a fuller look to it. Hair fall has also reduced a bit. Since I have thick and voluminous hair and an oily scalp, I cannot use a conditioner that often because my hair looks greasy and weighed down. But this product does the job of a conditioner as well – I simply let it sit on my hair after massaging it onto my scalp for about two minutes. Also, my hair takes longer to get greasy – earlier it would get grimy perhaps even the evening of the next day after shampooing.
But ever since I started using the Force Vector shampoo, my hair looks greasy only by the third day. The first wash – a double wash – did leave my hair frizzy – but it became softer by the next day. But the chemicals could prove harsh for some.
How I Use it
Any shampoo may change your hair texture but its action is on the scalp, where the nutrients are absorbed. So you need to make sure your scalp has full contact with the shampoo, for long enough, and gently rub to increase circulation. I usually washed twice but you might not need to do so if you have a normal hair or at least one not so long.
I have been using this for nearly three months now and have noticed that my hair is looking better. It appears more thicker, has more volume and bounce too. I could feel the smoothness of my hair right from the first wash itself. I love this product! it totally reduced my breakage and increased volume.
The shampoo is an amazing de-tangler. Just after the first wash, all my tangles disappeared, enabling the brush to slip easily through my hair. Since, less effort in brushing means less hair fall and breakage, it added the missing bounce in my brittle hair. My hair are smoother, softer, and definitely stronger! Another good thing about this shampoo is that after using this shampoo, I don’t feel the need to use a conditioner. This is a treatment shampoo – so the benefits happen or are intensified with time.
However, it worked wonderfully for me – almost from the first wash onwards! I felt my hair texture improving week by week. Oh! And it also treated splits ends, for me was a drastic reduction! My hair is behaving much better after applying this shampoo… For some it may seem costly for a small quantity, but trust me.. As the tag line of L’Oreal says – It’s worth it !! 🙂
It is best to combine it with the force vector hair masque.. it does wonders for damaged hair..I am on my second bottle..and this is my go to product for hair damage repair!! The only con I have experienced about this shampoo is that it doesn’t lather much. So you need more of the product to get that ‘clean feel’. And if you oil your hair, you need to wash your hair twice or even more!
