New: L'Oreal Hair Expertise | EverStrong and EverSleek

In the past year or so I have turned into a self confessed 'hair snob' and have taken to only using higher end products on my hair and felt like the likes of Redken, Philip Kingsley and Macadamia are the only things that have been working for me and my locks. However, whilst being a student I only work part time and on minimum wage so I have a very low income and this costly hair habit cannot continue. I've been hunting for a budget hair care alternative that still provides the same great results and luckily I hit the jackpot second time lucky! Tresemme Keratin Smooth range was a no no, but L'Oreal EverStrong and EverSleek were a yes yes!

After 3 weeks of religiously using this sulphate free and silicone free duo, I thought it was time that I shared my thoughts:

I mixed and matched my choices for shampoo and conditioner from the various ranges in the Hair Expertise line, and I chose a reinforcing shampoo to help strengthen the roots of my hair, and a nourishing conditioner to help tame and smooth the mid-lengths and ends.

L'Oreal EverStrong Shampoo
The EverStrong range is a strengthening and reinforcing formula for fragile, brittle hair. I don't use a huge amount of product in my hair such as hairspray, volume sprays etc, so I don't need anything too heavy duty for regular washing, and the no sulphate formula of this means that there isn't the usual excess stripping of essential oils in the hair that some shampoos can do, so it is much more gentle on the hair. It definitely does still leave the hair feeling clean after use, but more of a soft and nourished kind of clean, as opposed to the squeaky clean and easily tangled type of clean.

L'Oreal EverSleek Conditioner
The EverSleek range is a smoothing and moisturising formula for frizzy, over worked hair. (There is a 'smoothing and moistursing', and also a 'smoothing and nourishing' conditioner from the EverSleek line, but I expect they're extremely similar). This is a really rich and creamy conditioner where a little goes a long way, which is refreshing to see from a highstreet conditioner. It really does help to battle the frizz and make everything seem smoother, sleeker and generally more tame, without weighing the hair down at all.

I'm pretty sure that my hair has never felt so clean and refreshed, at the same time as being so soft, smooth and manageable, all with a healthy glossy shine! These absolutely rival some more expensive hair care ranges I have tried, and for the price I would definitely say it's worth trying them out and letting them work their magic on you!

With all sorts of ranges such as EverRiche and EverPure as well as EverStrong and EverSleek, and matching deep treatment masks too, everybody should be able to find a match to suit their hair needs.

Cost at Boots: Currently £5.99 each, or 2 for £9.00
