L’Oreal- Absolut repair hair masque (review)

Quickview
Repairing masque for very damaged hair
Price: Rs 550 (200ml)
Claims: Repairs and nourishes the devitalized hair fiber. Hair is left revitalized, soft and shiny.
L’Oreal absolute repair hair masque comes in tub like most hair masques. The consistency of the masque is really thick. It has neofibrine  which is a patented invention of loreal. Neofibrine has been described as a unique combination of Bio-Mimetic Ceramide , natural wax, shine perfecting agent and a UV filter for hair. My hair gets damaged by heat styling pretty fast, so I bought this hair masque as it is for very damaged hair. This product is also advised for chemically treated hair.  This product is from the serie expert range, which as we all know is a bit pricy. Thus I always do my research work pretty well before buying something from this range, but I was absolutely glad to have bought this product. It has to be massaged into shampooed and towel dried hair. Leave it for two to three minutes, and rinse thoroughly. You can try leaving it for ten minutes and giving your self a hot towel treatment. I use it every alternative time I shampoo my hair.
Pros: Hair instantly feels softer, looks shinier and healthier.
               It smells great too!!
              It is mentioned on the tub that it has a UV filter for hair . That is a definite plus point.
              The tub lasts for around 4 to 5 months.
 (I shampoo my hair every second day and apply the hair masque every alternative time I shampoo that means once in every four to five days. And I am not kidding the last tub I had lasted me for six months. Then if you think about it the price does not seem that much.)
Cons:  weighs down hair.
          I have got fine hair, still it doesn’t bother me that much. But my friends have                
          complained that it  does make hair a bit heavy.
My rating : 4/5
Paisa Vasool: Yes
Would I buy again: Yes
My friends whose hair has been fried by straightening and rebounding have been suggested to use this product by hair stylists. I do believe it makes the hair stronger. All in all this is a great hair treatment for damaged hair.

  7. Have not tried liss ultime rashmi. My friend uses it (her name is also rashmi btw :) ) and she loves it. I suppose absolute repair is designed for damaged hair and liss ultime for dry frizzy hair. Any of the two would be a nice investment sweets.
