When I first heard about this I started mentally editing out my hair and pasting in the locks of a lady who is THE L’Oreal haircare girl, you know the one in the Elnett adverts… I have heard that mousse, hairspray and texturising/dry shampoo products can give us Victoria Secret-esque hairdos… BUT now L’Oreal claim the Fibrology line – sounds like science fiction, and makes me suspicious – is able to thicken hair by simply using their in shower products and to find out if it was true I tested the line out on my straight-straight-straight hair :).
A bit more about my hair type… I have very fine, straight, flat, long (reaches to the middle of my back) hair – using more product or layering products makes my hair flatter, usually, so I try to use lighter conditioners and less product where possible.
I have used all the products on three occasions now and listed each in order of use:
L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo 400ml
The shampoo smells very fresh, foams up very well, and I didn’t find I needed much at all to give my hair a very good cleansed feel (even for my long hair I only used a 10p sized amount).
L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Booster
The booster is a weird product which has no scent, is difficult to distribute evenly in wet hair as you can’t tell where it has been applied (doesn’t have a slippery feel like conditioner just feels like water). The booster is to be used after the shampoo but before conditioner from the same range. You are supposed to use the same amount of this product as conditioner and apply from root to tip. I think I ended up using around 1/5 of the tube; so you would need to either use this less often -instructions on frequency of use are not on tube – or add it to your weekly shop!

Have you tried this line? If so, can you let me know what you thought of it and if there is anything I can do to “Thicken” my do? – besides teasing it into a great big knot – 😉
