DIY: L'Oreal PowerDose/Powercell Repair treatment at home (Review)

LÓreal Powercell repair at home price

While visiting a salon for an haircut, I have been convinced more than once to get hair treatments done that claim to transform your dull damaged hair into looking like a goddess'. Though I have had satisfactory results with these treatments, my wallet doesn't feel the same. It is great to pamper yourself at salons once in a while, but why not do these treatments more often at home at a very, very small fraction of price of what you pay at salons. Think about all the things you can do with the money you save!!

Today I am going to tell you how you can use 'L'Oreal Serie Expert Power Repair B -Powercell Repair with Lactic acid' (which was earlier known as Powerdose treatment) at the comfort of your home while answering some of the general queries that girls have about this treatment.

How much does L'Oreal Powercell repair treatment cost? 
INR 125 for a vial

Where can I buy L'Oreal Powercell Repair repair treatment from?
I bought it from Irla market for only INR 85 per vial. I have also seen many shops at Lokhandwala, Andheri West selling this. Online you can get good deals on these vials from Amazon and Ebay. Some salons are sweet enough to sell this but mostly refuse to.

What it claims: 
L'oreal Serie Expert Power Repair B (Powercell Repair with Lactic Acid) is a single-dose repairing treatment for very damaged hair. It is to be used after shampooing as an instant repairing treatment for fragile, brittle, sensitised and devitalised, lifeless hair. It is a single dose treatment for very damaged hair. This intensive treatment contains NeofibrineTM to restructure and rehydrate the hair fibre, providing absolute repair, to make hair look and feel soft, shiny and healthy. Provides complete renewal and intense strength for chemically-damaged hair. 

If you have got Power Repair B treatment done at salons you must have seen the hair stylist fitting the Power Repair B vial into a spray pump. You can buy this powerdose spray pump made especially to fit this vial (and other powerdose treatments) for around INR 100. What I do is I pour the treatment into an empty spray bottle. I find one vial is enough for my thin medium-long hair. You may need more than once vial depending on the thickness and length of your hair.

After shampooing and towel drying your hair, spray this treatment by parting your hair in sections. Make sure to distribute this treatment evenly and then massage your hair. Leave it for about 15-20 minutes, no more than that. Rinse thoroughly. And you are done!

Powercell repair makes the hair healthy inside and out. I find the results of using Powercell Repair at home, same as the results I get from salons. Hair feels healthier and looks shinier.

How often can I use L'Oreal Powercell Repair treatment?
Personally I feel using it once a month is enough. Salons suggest to use it once in 15 days.

What has your experience been with L'Oreal Powercell Repair treatment? What do you think girls, will you use this treatment at home?

  6. Thank God I found this information. The other day I had gone shopping at The Beauty Centre, Bandra and the sweet girl at the counter convinced me to buy these vials (Rs 100 each). And as I was in a bit of a rush to pick my kids from school, I couldn't really understand the process of the treatment. Your blog post is so informative...keep writing....loved going through your blog...
