Review: L’oreal Colorista and L’oreal Elvive Damage Erasing Balm

I purchased the L’oreal Colorista in pink a while ago and I decided to test it out. The L’oreal Elvive balm was sent to me via Influenster for me to try.


L’oreal Colorista: The bottle says that for the product to work for your hair you must have pre-lighten hair. My hair at the time was bleached to a beige blonde color. I followed the instructions and It left a very vibrant pink. As soon as I showered and I applied shampoo most of the product fell from my hair. It took about three days (because I wash my hair everyday) for the product to completely fade from my hair. When most of the product fell from my hair after those three days it did leave a slight staining on my hair. I was in complete panic thinking it was going to stay that way. About the fourth of fifth wash the staining washed out of my hair. I recommend this product to someone who wants fun vibrant hair for a day. I would use this product again if I was going to a music festival. I haven’t tried any other color from this line but I know for a fact that this particular color worked like a dream. Also a huge mistake that I did was two things. First I only purchased one bottle, which was not enough for my over the shoulders hair. Two I tried diluting the product with conditioner which did nothing to my hair if anything it made the color not appear in my hair.


My results:



After washing it stained my hair:


But it completely washed out with a lot of shampoo and purple shampoo for blondes.

L’oreal Balm:

I was very intrigued by this product because it claims to spot a difference in your hair by the first use.

Product description:L’Oréal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm is a rinse-out hair mask that repairs up to one year of damage to hair’s smoothness in 1 use.* Both powerful and luxurious, this hair treatment for damaged hair instantly repairs the 5 signs of damage – split ends, weakness, roughness, dullness, and dehydration**. For best results, use with Total Repair 5 shampoo.


I have bleached hair and I am always looking for products to use that say can repair my hair. The first time I used this product I can say I did notice a difference in my hair. My hair felt softer and looked shiny. I’ve been using this product for two weeks in a row and I enjoyed using it. Has it repaired up to one year of damage? It hasn’t. But I do feel a sudden softness to my hair. It’s a great product to use if you’re looking for more hydration if you have  dull hair.


Do you use any L’oreal hair products? If so let me know which ones I should try next!
