New Release: L'Oreal Pro l Fiber Collection *


I had the luck not that long ago to wrangle an invite to an exciting launch for that of the L'Oreal Pro Fiber Collection, and this has been a bit of a game changer in haircare!

Meant to herald a new era of hair care, this is supposed to rectify, restore and reconstruct weak and damaged hair. They have identified three stages of damaged hair, namely:
1) Only the cuticle is affected (Rectify)
2) The cuticle and cortex are both affected (Restore)
3) The cuticle and cortex are very damaged (Reconstruct)

Restore masque $35

I won't bore you with the science behind this, and how it works - the people who would do your initial treatment for you in salon would be able to give you a better explanation than me. Instead, I'm going to focus on how to begin, what you have to do at home, and my experience with it so far.

Restore emulsions of serum $29

First, you have to book an appointment with a L'Oreal Professional salon, where they will run you through the system, assess the level of hair damage, then decide on what protocol you should go for. As you can see, due to occasional dyeing and the use of hot tools, my hair was deemed to need level two - Restore. 

Restore shampoo $29

They will do the first treatment for you, then it's up to you to take care of the rest by using the appropriate range. They are all quite scented, and Restore smells a little bit like Lily of the Valley, and I catch whiffs of it as it lingers all day, which is really pretty. Each range is made up of a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, serum and you're also meant to get a set of auto re-charge monodoses.

Auto re-charge monodoses $45

So, after your first visit, you:
1) wash your hair with the designated shampoo up to four times before you
2) use an auto re-charge monodose as your treatment like you would a conditioner, then
3) go back into the salon to begin again after six weeks

My thoughts on it so far? I'm loving it! The shampoo doesn't really lather as well as I'd like, and I seem to use a fair bit of it in each go, and the serum feels a little watery, and doesn't weigh much on the strands at all, meaning it also doesn't leave a residue. 

The monodoses are actually kinda fun to use, and they spread easily on the tresses, but the piece de resistance is the hair masque - it's thick, gorgeous and you can just about feel it work as you stroke it through the hair. You're also meant to milk all the stuff you use through the hair from midway down to the tips to get more out of it.

The outcome is that after almost a month, the tips of my hair feel less brittle, and my hair just feels sleeker in general. A bit of a down side, however, is that my super Asian hair has a bit less body than before, resulting in it sitting a little flatter, but, and that's a big but, my hair seems to be sitting a lot better without additional styling products on a daily basis. Coincidence? Maybe. Due to my new hair routine? Seems likely! Either way, it's been a very satisfactory trial!
