When you have long hair, keeping it in good condition is very important and I always find myself drawn to products that promise healthy-looking locks. When the L’Oreal Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water popped up on the scene I thought it was a bit of a fad, but then when I saw lots of beauty magazines and bloggers raving about it, I thought I would give it a go for myself. Here’s how I got on…
How do I use the L’Oreal Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water?
Conditioners and hair masks tend to be thick, heavy and need to be left on for a while to get to work, but this conditioning treatment is a whole new ball game. It’s a gel/water consistently, so be careful when you tip the bottle up. After shampooing, just literally squirt the product into the lengths of your hair, rub in for a few seconds (8 to be precise) and then rinse out. You can follow with your usual conditioner, but I didn’t feel the need to.
Does the L’Oreal Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water work?
As soon as my hair dried after my shower I could notice that it felt silky smooth. Of course, if you have dry, split ends which need a trim, it’s not going to work miracles, but if you’re just in need of a little helping hand, the results are great.
Is the L’Oreal Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water worth the money?
It’s priced at £9.99 and considering it lasts for around 7 treatments I would conclude that it is definitely worth the money. There’s a handy guide on the side of the bottle to ensure you use the right amount each time, and I personally found that I didn’t need the treatment every single time I washed my hair, so I tend use every two weeks or so for an extra treat.
Although I’m a BIG fan of a full on pamper shower and spending an adequate time on self-care, in day-to-day life when i’m jumping in the shower before work or after a gym class, this baby is my new best friend.
