You asked, I’m here with answers.
L’Oreal just released their Nutri-Gloss Shampoo, Conditioner and Glossing Mist and I’ve had quite a few of you ask what I thought about it. So, I went out and purchased it (with my own money) with zero motive other than trying it out and seeing what I think.
Also called L’Oreal Paris Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser in Europe, this is what it costs here in the US:
Glossing Mist: $6.99
“Nutri-Gloss formula with Glyco-Silk gives up to 48 hours of glossy shine and nutrition.”
It’s good, not great. It smells nice and leaves the hair feeling clean and silky, but I didn’t notice any difference from how my hair looks after I use a normal clarifying shampoo. The mist is ok, but you have to be careful not to spray it near your roots, otherwise it will look oily. I also used the entire system several times just to make sure I didn’t miss something.
Basically, I didn’t see any difference from what I normally use. I’m going to keep using the shampoo and conditioner until it’s gone, but the mist will probably be given to a friend.
Any clarifying shampoo is a great addition to your normal shampooing routine. It’s great to get rid of any buildup and usually leaves the hair shinier than normal. My (hands down) favorite shine spray is Aquage Beyond Shine. A little bit goes a LONG way and it doesn’t weigh down hair. Also, a pro tip for shiny hair is to rinse your hair at the very end of your shower with cold (I mean COLD) water and skip the towel in favor for an old t-shirt to dry off your hair. The cold water seals the hair follicle and the t-shirt helps combat frizz (a must for curly haired ladies, but works for everyone). Terrycloth tends to frizz out hair and that diminishes the look of a unified, sleek hair shaft.
I think it’s a good product, but it doesn’t replace a salon glossing treatment, like it suggests in the commercials. Don’t expect supermodel shine with this stuff, but it is a pretty fantastic option given the price point. Just use the glossing spray sparingly. Trust me.
