I put my hair through a lot. I always straighten it at high heat, it takes ages to dry and I colour my hair regularly. I am the poster child for damaged hair. Typically, I find these little tubes of hair stuff gimmicky. Many are just conditioner in cutesy expensive packaging but a friend recommended L’Oreal Total Repair Extreme Ultra-Concentrated Urgent Repair Care (woah that is a mouthful) so I thought I would give it a try.
I picked up the little pink tube of Urgent Repair Care for under $2 at Walmart (even better, there are coupons for $1 off any L’Oreal Hair Expertise product). You use it after shampoo and conditioner, leave it on for a few minutes then rinse out. Use Urgent Repair Care once a week for best results.
L’Oreal’s Ultra Concentrated Urgent Repair Care is enriched with LAK 1000 containing reconstructing gel that deeply penetrates the hair fibre and this little tube really lived up to L’Oreal’s claims. After washing, my hair was super soft. It was easy to style and dried quickly. Usually my hair is really frizzy and after drying, feels crunchy dry but it takes that long to actually dry it. This time, my hair was sleek, it dried more quickly and friends commented thinking I had got my hair “done” before our night out.
My hair was cut recently so I don’t have split ends, but I still deal with a lot of frizz that makes the ends look messy, I did not have that issue at all after using Urgent Repair Care, the ends straightened and flipped like I wanted them to, and the softness lasted even after the next wash. Even better, I needed less product to keep my hair styled too, which made up for the money spent on it.
L’Oreal’s Ultra Concentrated Urgent Repair Care smells great too, kinda fruity, bubblegum but not so much that you smell like a kid. I have long-ish thick hair and there was plenty of Urgent Repair Care Treatment in the tube to cover all of my hair. If you have fine/really short hair, you might even get two uses from each tube.
L’Oreal also has a Total Repair line of shampoo and conditioner, if they are as good as the Urgent Repair Care concentrated treatment, they would be well worth buying.
