Everyone want shiny hair  . . . and if you say otherwise, you’re just lying and need a time-out. In my opinion, shiny hair means healthy, clean hair and I find it SO difficult to get my hair looking as shiny that I want without tipping my mane into that horrible oily, yucky phase.


The L’oreal Paris Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser High Shine Range consists of a Shampoo (£2.99 for 250ml, £3.99 400ml),Conditioner (£2.99 for 250ml, £3.99 400ml) and a Glosser (£9.99) which have been  enriched with glycogel. This is a glossing polish that helps your hair look illuminated for up to 48 hours by sealing the cuticles and coating your hair with a gloss to intensify shine. There is a lot of science behind this product; most of which I don’t understand completely (so don’t feel that comfortable regurgitating), just know that the L’Oreal Paris scientists are definitely doing their job.

I’ve been given the L’oreal Paris Elvive High Shine Shampoo & Conditioner to review which is great as I really needed to wash my hair (have to battle the frizz) but I did suffer a minor allergic reaction to a conditioner at the beginning of the month so I was a little worried that the High Shine Shampoo & Conditioner would trigger my allergies, especially as they are both heavily scented. Luckily nothing has happened yet but I will give it til the end of the week and update this post if anything changes.

In terms of ‘shine’, I don’t feel that my hair looks shinier than normal *stares at hair strand* but this might be one of those products that you have to use over an extended period of time before you  start to see some results. Personally I see myself using the Nutri-Gloss Luminiser High Shine Shampoo more than the Conditioner as I don’t feel like the conditioner is rich enough but that’s just my personal opinion and preference.

The L’oreal Paris Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser High Shine Shampoo & Conditioner launches in Boots & Superdrug at the end of March 2015, so keep an eye out if my review has tempted you.
