Road Test: L’Oreal EverSleek Sulfate Free Smoothing System
The further adventures of taming my Hermione Granger hair, courtesy of L’Oreal’s new Eversleek Sulfate Free Smoothing System products!
I’ve told you all about my Hermione Granger hair before. I’ve gone on about how unmanageable it is, and how the Mizu Salon worked wonders on it (that haircut is holding up great, by the way!). Alas, though, I can’t always have the Mizu Salon at my beck and call to make my hair look fabulous. And that, my friends, is where L’Oreal’s new EverSleek line of products comes in—and boy, am I glad they ended up in our mailbox!
You see, most products geared towards taming unruly hair use harsh sulfates to cleanse and heavy silicone to smooth—neither of which are very good for your tresses’ long-term health. L’Oreal’s EverSleek Sulfate-Free Smoothing System, however, doesn’t. What a concept! Instead, these shampoos, conditioners, and styling products combine natural argan, sunflower, and olive oils to gently cleanse and smooth your locks. The best part? Because there’s no silicone involved, these products work their magic without weighing anything down—and they keep you frizz-free for an entire 48 hours.
Lucky me—I got to give these fantastic new products a test run, and I’m super happy with the results. For the past week or two, I’ve been starting things off in the morning with EverSleek’s Intense Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner ($6.99 each, lorealparisusa.com). Once I’ve gotten out of the shower and given my hair a quick toweling, I’ve worked about two pumps of the Frizz Taming Crème Serum ($8.99, lorealparisusa.com) through it. Then I’ve added just a touch of the Humidity Defying Leave-In Crème ($8.99, lorealparisusa.com) before styling as usual. The products protect my hair from the heat of my blow dryer and flat iron before locking in smoothness, leaving everything soft, manageable, and miraculously frizz-free—and without weighing my hair down. There’s no product build-up, no greasiness… no nothin’. Now that’s what I call a result!
Is your hair in need of a little TLC? Have no fear– there’s an EverSleek product for that, too. Give the Reparative Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner ($6.99 each, lorealparisusa.com) a shot; it’ll work wonders on breakage and split ends. Are your locks a little parched? You guessed it—there’s an EverSleek solution for that, too! Try the Smoothing Deep Conditioner ($8.99, lorealparisusa.com) for some heavy-duty conditioning.
All the products from L’Oreal’s EverSleek Sulfate Free Smoothing System are well worth it if you, too, have Hermione Granger hair—and at these prices, you can definitely afford to treat yourself. So go on. Give them a try. Trust me. Your hair will thank you!
